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.


Akanishi Troop gets in trouble with the police for stealing a cellphone in Roppongi

16 Jul

The Akanishi Troop, consisting of Akanishi Jin(30), Yamashita Tomohisa(29), Nishikido Ryo(29) and friends, have been involved in an incident with the police. Last month, they got into trouble with a group of 5 or 6 in Roppongi and were accused of stealing a cellphone.

“Nishikido hangs out frequently with the group, and he is known for being a bad drinker who forgets what happens after a night of drinking. People have seen him forcing his way into cabs. Yamashita also plays with them frequently. The Akanishi Troop usually goes clubbing to hit on foreign ladies.”

The Akanishi Troop was thought to have disbanded due to Akanishi’s marriage to actress Kuroki Meisa(26) in 2012, and the birth of their daughter in the same year. Recently though, the group seems to have revived their activities.

“Last month, this group of 5 or 6 people discovered the Akanishi Troop in the streets of Roppongi and called out to them. They were not fans of Johnny’s. I guess Akanishi and friends weren’t amused by that. It ended in a scuffle,” a person familiar with the incident said. Scuffles are not uncommon in Roppongi where nightlife is rampant.

“One of the girls in the group was recording the scene on her cellphone. Noticing that, the Akanishi Troop took her phone and ran away with it,” he continued.

The girl reported this case to the police the next day.

“Fans of Akanishi Troop have also reported about being treated coldly. I know of one who met Akanishi in the streets. She wanted to take a picture but was threatened by his outburst of ‘Hey what are you filming!’ ” said someone from the entertainment circle.

However, the incident this time is not a case of Johnny’s talents versus stalker fans. There is information that mediation is ongoing to prevent this from developing into a criminal case.
