Police are investigating suspicions that the first four underage girls who complained to police in the Eyal Golan affair gave false testimony, Channel 2 reported.

According to the suspicions, the complainants in question, ages 15-17, told various lies to police investigators. Channel 2 reported that one girl falsely claimed to have told police that Golan impregnated her and she was forced to get an abortion.

The girls were questioned by police in recent weeks in regard to their false testimony. According to Channel 2, Golan will not be indicted in the affair.

Pending indictments against Golan's father, Dani Biton, and three other associates of the singer are not based on the testimony of the four girls in question, but on the testimony of three additional minors whose testimony was found to be truthful, according to the report.

Golan reacted to the Channel 2 report in an interview with the station, stating that he had been "waiting for the truth to come to light."

Golan was revealed to be the mystery singer allegedly involved in an affair involving sexual relations with underage girls last month, after a gag order on his identity was lifted.

The singer was taken in for questioning in the affair and served five days house arrest.
