D.Ark comes back online after suicide rumor
Fans of K-pop are aware of the fact that D.Ark had his contract terminated with P Nation after he was embroiled in an underage drinking controversy back in November of 2021. Following his exit from the label, D.Ark went MIA and deleted or deactivated his Instagram account. With absolutely no updates from the young rapper, fans were worried that he took the drastic step to end his life in light of the allegations against him.
Soon after fans started tweeting about D.Ark on Twitter and contacting his girlfriend on Instagram to get an update about him, the rapper made a comeback on the social media platform to ensure dedicated fans he was okay.

D.Ark’s exit from P Nation
D.Ark had been under fire for underage drinking; which is why as of November 12 last year, label P Nation decided it was best to terminate their contract with the teen rapper. Back in September of 2021, D.Ark was embroiled in the drinking scandal after he posted a video on his social media account in which eagle-eyed followers spotted alcoholic beverages in the background. Many fans of K-pop slammed the rapper for underage drinking while he rose to defend himself stating that the alcohol was not consumed by him but was meant for staff members.
D.Ark already had a soured public image after his sexual assault scandal from the year 2018 that added fuel to the fire, and which led to many negative comments online against the rapper. On November 12, P Nation came out with their official statement stating that “D.Ark’s ‘exclusive’ contract with the agency had ended.” This meant that D.Ark was free to sign with any other label he wished to sign with in order to promote his future activities.
