On August 9, Yuehua Entertainment and Mavericks Entertainment suddenly announced Meng Meiqi, Wu Xuanyi and Winnie Zhang Zining’s departure from Rocket Girls. Within the same day, Zhou Tian Entertainment issued a formal response.
According to Zhou Tian, the accusations that the girls had to endure health problems while coping with unreasonable schedules is false, and that Zhou Tian has been very concerned with the wellbeing of the ladies. Furthermore, Zhou Tian has rights to manage the eleven members of Rocket Girls and to represent them in any country for up to two years after the band’s formation. Hence, they expect Yuehua and Maverick to uphold their end of the contract.
It’s really hard to say who’s right or who’s wrong as someone from the outside, but it seems clear that things are getting messy. The ladies are supposed to appear at Weibo Fan Festival on August 18, and it looks like the Rocket Girls will be appearing as eight.
