Masahiro Higashide and Erika Karada at the Cannes Film Festival. His downfall began with this affair…

What is he going to do now…?

On January 18th, FLASH reported that actor Masahiro Higashide will be leaving his agency, Humanite, on January 31st.

It all started with the affair that was reported in January of the year before last.

Unbeknownst to Anzu, who was raising three children, it was discovered that she had been meeting a younger actress, Erika Karada. In March of the same year, Higashide held a press conference after a movie event and apologized to his wife, but the divorce was finalized in July of the same year, with Anzu retaining custody of their three children.

He lost most of his jobs and was dropped from all the commercials he was featured in. It is rumored that she was charged a penalty of 200 million yen, but this man never learned.

Last October, Shukan Bunshun reported on his relationship with a half-breed beauty in her twenties. According to the same magazine, Higashide, who is older than her, made a fierce approach to her, and after their relationship, he moved her to his neighborhood and has been visiting her every day and night.

Higashide also invited Ms. A to stay with him for three nights in a row in Hiroshima, where he was filming a movie. This caused a huge uproar because of the Covid-19 disaster.

When contacted by the media, his office not only admitted to the fact, but also said, “The fact is that the location of the film is not a fact.

If what happened at the location is true, we have to say that it is a very ill-advised action considering Higashide’s current situation. We will continue to confirm the facts regarding Higashide and consider how to deal with him in the future.

We will continue to confirm the facts regarding Higashide and consider how to respond in the future.

It is against the law in the industry to bring a girlfriend on location. It is not legal in the industry to bring a girlfriend to a location, and in this day and age, there is no one who would do such a thing. It’s an act that lowers the morale of the scene, and it’s not good for the other offices. The agency apologized to all parties involved and dropped an extra-large thunderbolt on Higashide.

It’s only natural that the office that protected Higashide during his affair with Karada would be upset to see their favor returned. Above all, it was a matter of the office’s credibility in the industry.

This “report” of Higashide accompanied by his girlfriend was the decisive factor, and Higashide will be dismissed at the end of this month… He is said to be saying that he is going independent, but we must say that the road ahead is very difficult. The manager of a medium-sized entertainment company said

The manager of a medium-sized entertainment company said, “At the end of last year, Yutaka Takenouchi became independent from the agency he belonged to for 26 years, but when you are in Mr. Takenouchi’s class, you can communicate with producers and directors with just one phone call. In Mr. Higashide’s career, it would be impossible. His acting is also treated as “bar reading” in the industry and is not highly regarded. I wonder if there is anyone who will actively support him.

He points out. In the first place, it is said that the entertainment agencies that hold popular actresses have rejected Higashide, who is “sloppy” with women, as a co-star.

Her only hope is the “Confidence Man JP” (Fuji TV) series. Higashide appears in the main character of “Boku-chan,” one of the main con artists, and the theatrical version of “Hero” was released on January 14 and is off to a good start.

She said, “I have a fixed fan base, so I can calculate (the box office). In fact, after the report of the affair, they discussed the idea of reducing Higashide’s scenes and eventually letting him graduate from the show, but due to the deaths of Haruma Miura and Yuko Takeuchi, they decided to keep him on.

Higashide’s fee is estimated to be several million yen. It’s not a huge amount, but if you go independent, you can get it all.

He already has plans for his next film. We were originally planning to shoot overseas this year, but due to the Covid-19 disaster and schedule adjustments, it will be next year or later. This year is going to be a tough one financially for Mr. Higashide,” said a sports reporter.

He is obligated to pay child support to his ex-wife Anne’s child.

He has to pay child support for his ex-wife Anne’s child, but some people are worried that this will become a “loose end” after he leaves the agency.

It is said that Higashide has recently been showing up at drinking parties and selling his face to people in the industry. How far will her “sales skills” take her?
