Kago Ai’s agency demands 100 million yen in damages

Kago Ai’s stream of bad luck doesn’t seem to be letting up — the president of her agency, Ito Kazuyuki, is setting out to sue the former Morning Musume idol for damages. Ito explains that Kago has cost the company more than 100 million yen (~1.3 million USD) in damages due to a violation of her contract, so he is preparing to fight her in a civil suit for the damages.
Ito spoke of the problem to Sankei Sports, “She cancelled her last job at the last minute and it has been about a year since we’ve truly been not able to contact her. Since we love her as a child, we patiently waited for her to come back, but even we have our limits. The lawsuit is for the damages she’s caused the company by canceling her activities and breaking off her contract, which was good until the end of March 2013. It’s likely she has caused more than 100 million yen in damages. I want to hear what she says firsthand before the end of the year in the courtroom.

In September, Kago was shocked to learn that her 44 year old boyfriend was arrested on charges of attempted extortion with his yakuza ties, and as a result she tried to commit suicide. Kago has since been resting, but on November 21st, she re-appeared on her blog and Twitter with the message, “I feel better now! Thanks”.

Kago has encouraged her fans to wait for her return to the entertainment industry.


this poor girl can't catch a break

Don't really know why you added it, but IMO, the "lol" tag is not in good taste where this post is concerned.

I truly wish she could be happy with a simple, quiet life.

She is recovering from a suicide attempt and the company wants to sue her? That's really messed up. And the fact that they can legally do this because they basically own her is even moreso.

I like some idols, but they sure are swiftly losing their sparkle the more I read up on the shit their companies get up to.

Don't sign a contract if you don't want to do the work.

Kago can't catch a break and seems to have the worst luck imaginable. As well as a very flimsy support system in her life aside from her true fans who support her. I hope she can stay strong through this.

why does it seems that she has so many troubles that prevent her from living a peaceful life. -___- this is sick.

You know, I was ALL for these guys since the last I heard they wanted to help her get away from that jerk.

I hope she can hold it together. <3
