DJ MAXIMITE, the famous producer behind Produce 101 Season 1‘s “PICK ME”, was arrested by the police on charges for assaulting his girlfriend and stealing her money. Back on October 1, 2017, MAXIMITE was arrested for repeatedly beating his girlfriend at their house in Gangnam. He reportedly beat and threatened her to give him 90 million won (~$83,000 USD).
Upon investigation, MAXIMITE was revealed to have kicked his girlfriend’s chest multiple times after she asked him pay her back. He stole the money from her under the pretext of paying off penalty fees to his label, paying for an acquaintance’s attorney fees, and the lease to his car.
MAXIMITE has repeatedly been arrested and penalized for assaulting his girlfriend over the past 2 years. He was charged with assault on April 7, 2017 for beating his girlfriend over a conflict regarding another woman. He was also arrested and fined back in February 2018 for assaulting his girlfriend to the point that she required 2 weeks of treatment to recover.
The police are currently looking farther into the investigation.
