Yamapi has distanced himself from Akanishi Troop?

20 Aug

Last year, the “Akanishi Troop” consisting Akanishi Jin, Nishikido Ryo and Yamashita Tomohisa amongst others caused controversy after stealing/destroying a cellphone from someone during a night out in Roppongi. The case was settled after a large amount of settlement money was paid to the victim. However, Yamashita, who seems to have taken most responsibility for it by apologising through the media, is said to have distanced himself from the group.

According to a entertainment writer, it seems like Johnny’s jimusho has served Yamapi with the ultimatum to break off relations with Akanishi. This statement was published in the 18th Aug version of Shukan Jousei.

The Akanishi Troop takes an annual trip overseas to strengthen their unity. Last year, they went to Singapore but Yamashita did not tag along.

In June this year, the members held a birthday party but Yamapi did not show up as well.

“If it were the Yamapi before this incident, this would not happen. This is how strong his feelings for Akanishi is like,” says the entertainment writer.


In another article, Yamapi is said to be hanging out with actors Ayano Go, Sato Takeru, Miura Shohei lately.

Ayano Go and Yamapi were introduced to each other by Yamada Takayuki 4 years ago. Both hit it off and go drinking till daybreak. Miura and Yamapi were introduced by Ito Hideaki. Both have co-starred with Ito Hideaki and see him as a big brother.

“He also frequents a gay bar and goes there once a week. There was a fireworks festival along Sumida River at the end of July and he rented a boat with the regulars of that bar to see it,” says acquaintance of Yamapi.

    It is Miura Shohei not Miura Ryohei.

    I can understand if he distanced from his gang. Looking back last year case when he took respobility alone for their problem together (akanishi,nishikido also there said the ones caused the problem first, some rumors said not only those two but other regular troops also there but media didnt care to write about them,some were said it was more like group fight with another but to made only yamapi responbility was unfair). Not only that in later news, media hide jin and ryo name as “yamapi and his 2 singer friends” that still mystery what happened in the court. Some speculation said yamapi who request that to protect his friends and paid the 3 millions himself to ended the case. Many controversy about this case.
    Earlier this year media also said johnny discovered that yamapi helping jin financial for his solo business and they plan to collaborations in music that cause another trouble for him. It said johnny and jimusho were very upset with him.
    I think his distance out from jin and troops is good idea, until the situation better. I hope thats not because he fight eith jin or what. Yamapi need to repair his career and name too.

      Thanks for pointing that out.

      In the end i think his career wasn’t affected at all. His movie did well and he continues to receive drama/movie offers. But i guess JE is freezing his music activities cos we no longer see him releasing singles or appearing in music festivals. I have no idea why he’d want to stay away from the troop..maybe he is on the brink of being fired.

        looking at how he tried help jin few times and didnt care about jimusho rules before, i doubt this is something light too. If this is true, I’m agree, maybe JE really gave him treat of being fired. Yamapi is different with Jin. He is an idol-self inside and he seems still want to appear on tv doing drama and movie. I also can’t imagine if he leave JE, He need to stay with JE for his future career and dreams. I think its impossible their long friendship over though, he just probably don’t want to join their event which can easily seen by public in purpose to avoid media reporters and its very understable if he try act more careful around now.

    I never like these troublemaker group but I can see YamaPi as a very loyal friend. his friendship with jin and troops seems very strong through the years within so many problems around them since their younger . If he really leave jin’s side, it must be serious reasons behind it.

      I heard many celebrities in japan are love drinking at gay bars. I heard it more peaceful and have better VIP place than usual bar. Its not mean they are ‘gay’, it just how they call the bar.

      He’d want to mix with them if the plan is to be an actor. These guys are hot in the industry now.
