The tabloid magazine Shukan Bunshun published some pictures, apparently showing Sashihara when she was 16 years old and a testimony of her (so-called) ex-boyfriend, who has unveiled some of the secrets of the idol.
“She was really precocious, despite being a year younger than me… When I went in her room, she told me ‘Are you just going to stand there looking at me?’ and ‘Come over here,’ and then put my hand on her thigh. Something snapped in me then and I pushed her down and we kissed for the first time.”
Besides the photographies given to the magazine, the young man also provided a phone number (Sashihara's), and dialed it to prove if it was real. As she answered the phone, she quickly denied the romance but admitted she and the anonymous male were friends for years.
Idols -as most people are aware of- are not allowed of dating, and considering these incidents happened while Sashihara was part of AKB48, they might affect her further projects.
By now, neither her nor her management had denied or said anything about this scandal. What's going to happen with Akimoto's favorite girl?
I wonder if she will be punished in case this is true; I mean, Kikuchi Ayaka got suspended before, right? Just like Hirajima Natsumi and Yonezawa Rumi earlier this year. But well...Sasshi is adored by Aki-P, so who knows...
