A Sentai actor, who had been the dream of children, became the victim of a scam.
On October 26, the Joto Police Station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department arrested Junya Ikeda, 31, on suspicion of fraud. The suspect is suspected of cheating the man out of his cash card.
Ikeda won the runner-up prize in the “Junon Super Boy Contest” in 2006 and also appeared in “Pirate Sentai Gokaiger” (TV Asahi). A friend who has known Ikeda for 16 years reveals the true face of the suspect.
A friend who has known Ikeda for 16 years reveals the true nature of the suspect: “Ikeda and I have been friends since we were in junior high school. We co-starred in the drama “Our Textbook” (Fuji TV) in 2007, and we became close friends. Ikeda on set was, in a word, a rascal. For some reason, he was three years older than Ikeda and put on an air of seniority.
He even took shots at co-stars who were older than Ikeda. He also took away a video game console that a younger girl was playing during a break. I once took the cell phone of a girl I liked on set without permission, and Hiro Mizushima, who played the teacher, got mad at me.
Ikeda is a suspect who has had many behavioral problems on set since he was a teenager. Regarding his recent life, the aforementioned friend continued, “Ikeda had a wife and two children.
Ikeda has a wife and two children, and in addition to his home, he has a room he calls his “work room” in an apartment in Setagaya Ward. When I visited that room last July, there was another woman there with his wife, whom Ikeda said was his girlfriend. Then Ikeda said, ‘Masaki Suda lives in this apartment and I am good friends with him. Sugata often comes to visit me in this room as well, and I am currently working with him to start a new business.
Ikeda had a second house and drove Porsches, Mercedes Benzes, and other luxury cars in his private life. His life as a celebrity had taken a turn for the worse, and he was living in poverty. Since April of this year, he has been earning his daily bread in the adult entertainment business for women, and eventually became a “receiver” of special scams.
I heard that Ikeda was divorced because of his adultery and had to pay a large amount of alimony. I think he was always very proud and did not want to show people around him that he was in need of money.
Regarding his relationship with Ikeda, Sugata’s agency responded, “(Sugata) has never met Ikeda.
As a result of his continued pretense to those around him, our hero has become a lonely criminal.
