For the past few years Rola has had drama with her agency LIBERA, but now she can add FREE WOMAN to her resume! The issues started when Rola wanted more independence and control over her career, but her agency refused.
The relationship between Rola and her agency continued to sour as years went on. Rumors spread that LIBERA’s CEO was threatening to blackmail Rola and even allegations of slave contracts made the news, but she was finally able to reach a settlement with them in April 2018.

Rola was with LIBERA for the entirety of her professional career, signing with them 14 years ago. Mainly signing models and talents, now that Rola is gone the biggest star under LIBERA is Akemi Darenogare.
