Sawajiri Erika is finally making her comeback to the entertainment world with her upcoming movie “Helter Skelter”. However, it hasn’t come without controversy, with Shuukan Bunshun revealing that Sawajiri may have a serious problem with marijuana. Now there’s even more rumors that Sawajiri used marijuana with a Johnny’s talent during her teen years.
“At the time, a Johnny’s talent attending Horikoshi High School sent her an e-mail that said ‘From now I’ll give even Erika a leaf~!’ That certain idol at that time already had rumors that he was smoking marijuana among his group of friends, and if the current rumors are true, there’s a strong chance he’s been addicted to marijuana since his teens.” (Industry Insider)
Right now for Sawajiri, rumors are flying that her current break from the Entertainment world is due to marijuana. Shuukan Bunshun recently published a document, allegedly sent by Lawyer A, that stated back in 2009 Sawajiri showed positive results for marijuana intoxication, which is why she was fired from her agency Stardust Production.
What “leaf” is referring to in the e-mail isn’t exactly clear, but if it’s true that a Johnny talent has been smoking marijuana since high school, it’s an extreme problem.
Who was the Johnny talent that hooked Sawajiri up with the “leaf”?
(Some of the Johnny’s that attended Horikoshi High School include Akanishi Jin, Yamashita Tomohisa, and Tanaka Koki.)
