Update on HSJ and making headlines everywhere

Hey!Say! underage member smoking, entertainment activities stopped indefinitely


Official statement:
Today, there are some news articles, which we validated with Morimoto Ryutaro himself. He admits that he has smoked out of curiosity on several occassions before. Although he is very sorry for his behaviour and in self-scrutiny, however underage smoking as a violation of the law is common knowledge and an unacceptable behaviour. Our company has always placed emphasis on educating them in this regard. To face the facts, from now on, Morimoto will cease all of his activities in the entertainment field indefinitely.
We sincerely apologize for the trouble caused to all fans and related persons.
-Johnnys Jimusho

Where is the official statement? I searched it on all the Johnny's Entetainment pages (http://www.johnnys-net.jp/ , http://www.jehp.jp/top.html , http://www.j-storm.co.jp/ ) and I didn't found it.

(sorry, I'm not really good in english)

it was posted as part of the newspaper article which I'm assuming is from 'official sources'....cuz you know.... they signed it as from the Jimushou.

Also I heard that they sent mail to their fanclub members about this already?

And if this photos are fake?
Jhonny's entertainment always write in its pages when something bad happened, they did it when the earthquake struck Japan.

It's only 7 Tuesday morning in Japan. Actually Johnnys usually takes some time to update their website, even the earthquake I think it took nearly a day.
