Yesterday, we reported that Krewella‘s Kris Trindl was filing a lawsuit against Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf on the grounds that they unfairly kicked him out of the group. Now, Yasmine is firing back, as she has released a statement online asking fans not to believe everything that they’re hearing and thanking those who have supported her.
Check it out below:
“Today was 1 of the most emotional days of my life. I know I don’t even have to explain why, as the whole internet-sphere knows by now, but reading so many false claims about my sister and me coming straight from Kris cut me deeper than anything I’ve experienced in my life. I can’t say much as this is a legal issue (and I hope that none of you will ever experience a lawsuit and know what it feels like not to be able to defend yourself to avoid MORE false claims) but truthfully all I really want to say right now is thank you. Even though only one side of a story was put on blast, every single person who texted, called, DMed, and emailed me today had nothing but support in their words. Without even hearing what I had to say, they already saw through the bullshit and knew the truth. That to me is more powerful than anything, this orb of love that I have surrounding me. I straight up feel like Harry Potter who is impervious to Voldemort’s ill will with the strength and care of my family, boyfriend, friends, and KREW. You guys never cease to amaze me with your genuine concern and care that you have for my sister and me. I am forever grateful to those who send us good vibes every day, I truly feel it from wherever you guys are in the world. Please just always remember: don’t buy the hype, don’t fall for a catchy headline. Just because you read it on your favorite blog doesn’t mean it true. Thank you guys again for your unending support.”
“1 more thing;
Choosing a ‘side’ is terrible. I don’t want anyone to take this situation as an opportunity to pity or criticize either party. From the bottom of my heart, Kris has and always will be my brother and he knows that. I would never ask anyone to feel or speak ill of him. I hope you all can understand that it is a waste of an emotion to hate someone, and that is exactly what I am trying to avoid right now. There is only 1 real message we’ve always tried to spread, and that is to spread love. Thank you guys again for the support.”
Of course, no one truly knows what’s going on, and it’s likely that we’ll never get the full story. However, I do agree with Yasmine in that we can’t believe everything we hear and there are obviously two sides to this lawsuit.
Whatever might be going on, I do hope that it gets resolved shortly. I like Krewella, a lot, and am hopeful that the three group members can put this all behind them and keep on making awesome music together.
