Ex-Johnny’s Jr. talent arrested for assaulting teacher

A 14-year-old ex-Johnny’s Jr. talent has been arrested by police for assaulting his school teacher, reports gossip magazine Shukan Josei.

 

The magazine, which went on sale today, reports on September 14, a 53-year-old junior high school teacher in Kawagoe city, Saitama prefecture, was punched by one of his school’s students.  It has been reported the student had frequently received warnings from teachers for bad behaviour and untidy uniforms in the past.

 

It has been reported a representative at Johnny’s & Associates has said the talent has not been actively working lately.

“He seems to be referred as a Johnny’s Jr. talent, but he has not been working for us since June this year, and we are yet to confirm that he was the one actually involved.”

 

Cyzowoman has reported the ex-talent had been featured on an episode of variety show SMAP x SMAP and many fans have already narrowed the list of Jrs down to a possible name.  It has also been reported the incident began after one teacher gave the student a warning.  The student then confronted the teacher, prompting another teacher to jump in and stop the argument, only to be punched twice in the chest.  Police were called in and the student was arrested on the spot.  It has been reported the student had told police he punched the teacher because they surrounded him, which made him angry.

Johnny’s senior hopes for the best for Jin Akanishi

Johnny’s senior talent Masahiko Kondo sent his congratulations to Jin Akanishi on September 24, reports Chunichi Sports.

 

Akanishi and his wife, actress Meisa Kuroki, had a baby girl on September 23.  It has been reported during an interview in Tokyo, Kondo, who also has a 4-year-old son, said he had some advice for Akanishi about being a father.

“Kids are really cute.  Just seeing them makes your worries go away.  I don’t think you need to put more pressure on yourself, it’s okay to do things at your own pace.”

 

Kondo also said he would like to encourage Akanishi to keep doing what he wants to do, even after all the drama so far with leaving KAT-TUN, going to the USA, a cancelled concert tour, and a blank work schedule.

“I chose to start a racing career, and I’m still involved in it.  You can get through it if you concentrate on your work and have faith in your fans and your supporters.  Your wife and children are on your side, you’ll be alright.”
