Johnny’s is rocked by the sexual assault of Mr. Kitagawa. Tatsuro Yamashita is also involved. ……

On July 9, musician Tatsuro Yamashita (70) appeared on the radio program “Yamashita Tatsuro’s Sunday Songbook” (TOKYO FM) and spoke for about seven minutes about his feelings regarding the series of disturbances. Yamashita does not engage in any social networking services, and this was the first time he mentioned the issue of sexual assault by Johnny’s.

It all started with the sudden termination of the contract with Kiyoshi Matsuo, 55, a music producer with whom Smile Company, to which Yamashita also belongs, had a business alliance. Mr. Matsuo announced the termination of his contract on January 1.

The management contract with my agency, which I have been with for 15 years, was terminated midway through the contract. The reason is that I referred to the Johnny’s’s office and President Keiko Fujishima Julie in the media.

》 I am sorry to hear that Mr. Tatsuro Yamashita, who invited me to join the company, agrees with the company policy. Thank you for all the support you have given me. Bye bye!

Yamashita revealed this on Twitter.

Yamashita revealed this on the same radio program.

I admit that Mr. Matsuo’s speculative and one-sided criticism of Janie Kitagawa’s sexual assault was one of the reasons for the termination of our contract, but it was by no means the only reason.

There are many other reasons, but I would like to refrain from discussing them here today.

He also hinted that it was not only a matter of Johnny’s, but he would not reveal the details. He also emphasized that Matsuo was not fired, as it was a business partnership and not an employment relationship.

On the “Information Live Miyaneya” (Nippon Television Network Corporation) broadcast on January 10, a unique rebuttal message from Matsuo himself was introduced.

Matsuo responded to Yamashita’s use of the word “dismissal,” saying that Matsuo himself had never used the word “dismissed. He then pointed out that Mr. Yamashita was misleading him, as if he were claiming that he had been fired,

Tatsuro-san, who once changed my expression and then denied it.
I am sorry.

He then commented, “It is unfortunate that Mr. Tatsuro changed my expression and denied it. He also said that it is not true that they have not met for a long time, and that he appeared live on an FM special program last year at the request of Mr. Yamashita and his office.

On the other hand, Mr. Yamashita said in his radio program,

I will never forget the debt I owe to Mr. Janney as an individual and as a musician.

He also mentioned that his works are innocent. He also said

If you interpret my attitude as a discovery or being wrapped up in something long, that’s fine. I am sure those people do not need my music.

He concluded.

I wonder what those who have been victimized by Mr. Janney think when they hear this. It would not be surprising if there are artists who have been victimized by Mr. Janney and have also received music from Mr. Yamashita. After all, there are several testimonies that if you refuse to have sexual relations with Mr. Janney, you will not be able to debut, or you will be treated coldly.

Mr. Yamashita’s statement that “people who interpret it as a discovery don’t need my music” is, depending on how you look at it, almost a backhanded remark that “if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it. Since people may unintentionally hear Mr. Yamashita’s music on TV or in commercials, sponsors may be reluctant to listen to his music until the problem with Johnny’s is resolved.

This is an extraordinary situation in which the issue of sexual assault by Mr. Janney continues to fly into the entertainment industry. When will this vicious cycle, in which no one is happy, end? ……
