In a bit of sad news, Ladybeard has announced that he will no longer be involved with Ladybaby.
The group's bearded frontman posted up a lengthy Facebook post explaining the situation, and that he has plans beyond Ladybaby.
For the remaining two members of the group, Rie and Rei have updated the Ladybaby website and have stated that they will continue on as "The Idol Formerly Known as Ladybaby". To that effect, the girls have released a new teaser video for their new endeavour:
As for Ladybeard, here's his Facebook message in its entirety:
It is with sadness and regret that I announce I will no longer be involved in the project Ladybaby or be associated in any way. I would like to thank the girls and everyone who participated in the project for their hard work. I very much appreciate everyone's efforts and I wish everyone all the best in their future endeavors. I have learned a great deal during the course of the project, feel I have had an invaluable experience, and have developed greatly as a performer.
Most importantly, I'd like to send an enormous thank you to all the fans who have payed attention to and supported Ladybaby. I feel that if we managed to bring you all some smiles, then the project was a success! I deeply appreciate the support we've received and I thank all the fans from the bottom of my heart.
I'd also like to say that anyone who thinks that Ladybeard is now finished is greatly mistaken. I have several other projects and collaborations lined up for the short term future, with many more in development for next year and beyond. Believe me when I tell you, you have not seen anything yet! I sincerely hope that the fans will continue to support me in my solo career, and future endeavors.
Ladybeard has only just begun!...
