On August 1, 2016, Ladybeard withdrew from the band, which led the remaining idol duo to rebrand itself The Idol Formerly Known As Ladybaby.
On November, 17, 2017, Rei Kuromiya finally withdrew from the band after a hiatus due to health issues, claiming that she needed more freedom than the idol world permitted.
As of December 2017, it is still unclear whether Rie will keep the project going solo, team up with new members, or leave and officially end the Ladybaby project.
The band released three singles as a trio and three singles as a duo. The duo's releases are licenced overseas by JPU Records since 2017.
