Yoshiko Mita’s life as an actress was swept away by her son, starting with “Poor Yoshiko Mita.
Entertainment reporter Toshio Ishikawa's "Behind the Scenes" of the entertainment industry: ......
Toshio Ishikawa, entertainment reporter, tells us what’s going on behind the scenes in the entertainment industry: ……
Yuya Takahashi, the second son of 81-year-old actress Yoshiko Mita and a former actor, has been arrested for another violation of the Stimulants Control Law. This is his fifth drug-related arrest.
He told his second wife, the father of former Nogizaka 46 singer O
I’ll kill you.”
If we include that, it would be his sixth arrest. If we include that, this would be the sixth time he has been arrested.
Still, it would be rare for an actress to have her work reduced so much because of her son. Ms. Mita was a great actress who was ranked No. 1 in the entertainment industry for several years in the ’90s in terms of actor and talent income. Although the income rankings are no longer published, Ms. Mita was forced to refrain from work after the arrest of Yuya in ’98, and her income dropped significantly.
The arrest of his son, a 17-year-old high school student, and the fact that the suspect was in possession of methamphetamine in the basement of his Tokyo mansion, which was said to cost as much as 1 billion yen at the time, forced Mr. Mita to stop working. At a press conference, Mita said, “My mother is an actress.
At the press conference, Ms. Mita said, “I feel sorry that my son’s case, who is a minor, was reported in the media because his mother is an actress.
This led to further bashing from the public. It was also revealed that she had been giving her son, a high school student, a monthly allowance of 500,000 yen.
Yuya was arrested two or three times. Each time, Mr. Mita said.
“All of this is a failure of education on our part,” she said.
He is not a juvenile, so there are limits to what we can do as parents. In my heart, I feel that he deserved to be thrown out.
At that time, his allowance was 700,000 yen per month. He told people that he was running several companies, including a snack bar, but in reality he had almost no income, and it was as if he had started the companies with his mother’s help.
After his fourth arrest, his allowance was said to be 150,000 yen a day, and there were reports that he was spending as much as 2 million yen a month on a family credit card. There were also reports that he was spending as much as 2 million yen a month on a family credit card.
Yuya was sentenced to one year and six months in prison, but the fourth time he was sentenced to two years and six months in prison, with a suspended sentence of five years with probation. Four years later, this time, the suspect was sentenced to a suspended sentence of five years with probation.
This time, four years later. He was arrested for the fifth time for violating the Stimulant Drug Control Law, but no one was able to save him from methamphetamine.
When he was in rehab in Okinawa, he reported on Facebook about his recent activities and seemed to be making efforts to get off methamphetamine. After returning from Okinawa, he also uploaded his life in Tokyo on his Facebook page and once happily wrote about trivial matters.
Mr. Mita also started a blog four years ago, and on October 19, the day before his sixth arrest was revealed, he wrote
I had some free time, so I went to see a cardiologist, which I had been wanting to do for a long time. (The results were very “favorable,” and I went home feeling like I could live to be 90 years old.
He reported, “My second son is living a decent life. He probably felt that his second son had begun to live an honest life. Then, on October 3, he was in touch with his grandchildren.
I had my grandson, who has been busy with his friends and school, keep me company for the first time in a long time. He said, “I want to eat ramen,” so I took him to a popular ramen restaurant.
He and his grandson were lined up close together at the counter of the ramen restaurant. The person who took the picture was probably her husband.
The suspect, Yuya, also has two wives, an eldest son and a daughter, respectively.
I also ordered dumplings with lots of meat (omission),” said a happy Mita.
Mita is full of happiness. Will Yuya’s re-, re-, re-, re-arrest for drugs change him again…?
