A mere 10,000 yen…Former KAT-TUN suspect Sei Tanaka’s “female extortion case” has fans disillusioned as police are ready to pursue other charges.
Former “KAT-TUN” member Sei Tanaka, who was arrested on extortion charges against a female acquaintance during his trial in a drug case, was released on the evening of December 2.
The suspect was introduced by a female acquaintance living in Kyoto City, and performed at a live house. Angry that he was not paid for his performance, he sent a message to her on LINE last June, saying, “How far do you think you can go?
He was so angry that he was not paid for his performance that he wrote to her on LINE last June, “How far do you think you can go, you piece of shit?
You’re a piece of shit!” and “Pay me 100,000 yen in full as soon as possible.
The suspect is suspected of forcing the woman to transfer 10,000 yen to the bank.
Tanaka sent a total of eight “threatening LINEs” to a female acquaintance. He also demanded payment of the remaining 90,000 yen.
He also demanded payment of the remaining 90,000 yen, saying, “This is a case where the backers are also involved.
He also alluded to the existence of a gang, saying, “It’s a case where the backstage moves are also involved.
Tanaka appeared in court at the Matsudo branch of the Chiba District Court last month for violating the Methamphetamine Control Law (use and possession). The prosecution was scheduled to conclude the trial with a request for a sentence, but the trial was terminated without a request for a sentence because the prosecution was planning to bring additional charges in another case.
This was the extortion case. Later that day, Tanaka was arrested again and transferred to Kyoto, making for a hectic day.
said a wide-ranging news media reporter who covered the case. The suspect, who had initially refused to confirm or deny the allegations, has since generally admitted to the charges. Tanaka was released and the investigation will proceed on a voluntary basis.
A picture-perfect fall from grace for a former top idol. What disappointed longtime fans, as well as the charges, is that the target of the blackmail was a woman.
Even on the Internet, the following comments were made
The fact that it was a woman is the worst.
Have they forgotten that they exist only because of their female fans?
The sports newspaper reporter said, “The fact that it was a woman who was the target of the blackmail is disgusting. A sports newspaper reporter said.
People who have actually met Mr. Tanaka on business all agree that he is a ‘good young man. He has an image of being a yankee, but in reality, he is very straight-laced and polite.
But that is only in public or in business relationships. His treatment of women in his private life is not very admirable.
Some weekly magazines reported that the suspect was in a “love hotel” with a female acquaintance. The weekly photo magazine “FLASH” reported that the woman had paid for everything at the hotel.
The magazine reported, “It may have been the woman’s good intentions, but I thought it would have been better if the man had paid. It is a pity because she used to be a core member of KAT-TUN.
In 2001, Tanaka’s exclusive contract was terminated by Johnny’s for “repeated violations of the rules. At the time, there was a lot of speculation about what was in it, including that he had been running a restaurant without permission from the office and that he had been working as an artist under a different name.
As the announcement said, “It’s not just one or two things. There were ‘repeated violations of the rules,’ as the announcement said. I have heard that some of them were not publicized and included troubles with women.
We also heard that the cause was Tanaka’s mistreatment of women. It seems that the office has come to the conclusion that they can’t handle it anymore.
On January 1, Kyoto police searched Tanaka’s home in Chiba City and confiscated his cell phone, bankbook, and other items. According to a reporter from the society section of a national newspaper
According to a reporter from the society section of a national newspaper, “The police are investigating whether there were other extortion attempts against women as well. They will interview Tanaka after comparing the records of the cell phone with the deposit records in the bank book.
The police are now investigating whether there were other female suspects involved in the blackmailing.
Tanaka is a family man and a nice young man. After leaving Johnny’s, many of his colleagues believed in him. The drug case and the extortion case destroyed all of them. The road to rehabilitation is long and difficult.
