First of all, you may all be asking… what is this rumor? I’ll let you all know in just a little while.
AKS, AKB48’s management company, has now filed a lawsuit against a publisher under Bungeishunju, which is Shukan Bunshun. They are suing the publisher for 150 Million Yen in damages that were caused by an article in February.
This alleged rumor was said to be that AKS president, Yasushi Kubota, was having an affair with member, Mariko Shinoda and has been said to be false.
The first trial of this lawsuit was said to have a big impact to the girls’ schedules and the group all together. Bungeishunju, still, have confidence on the story that was published on February 18.
Lot of drama… I shall say. Let’s see who will win.
