SKE48 involved in shocking underage drinking scandal: Johnnys Group NEWS also involved

The things NEWS won't do to maintain some miniscule shred of relevancy.

Today brought a revelation on the mysterious lady that Tegoshi Yuya (25) was caught embracing a few weeks ago. With much regret, tabloids across Japan reported that Tegoshi’s lovely mistress of the night was not NEWS’ manager, dowager empress Julie Keiko Fujishima, but rather SKE48’s darling 19-year-old Kito Momona. Fangirls hoping to hook up with Tego in the future should note it looks like he has a definite type, [very young and in the AKB family]. Good luck, Girls!

Reports claim the two shared a special evening together back on May 25th. Allegedly, they hooked up at a party, a friendly shindig where booze flowed freely, and as pictures reveal, the pair proceeded to spend the rest of the night engaged in a pleasant heap of entangled limbs. Investigative journalism reveals that Momona posted a picture of herself to her blog on May 26. In the post, Momo claims she's feeling a little under the weather, and offers a sincere and heartfelt apology to her fans for missing an important handshake event scheduled for that day. Shockingly, Momona is still wearing the identical outfit seen in the scandalous photos from the previous night! She couldn't even change clothes first??

Awkward pawing and necking aside, the big news here is that Kito Momona is only 19, and the legal drinking age in Japan is 20. While Momo is no stranger to scandal, neither is NEWS. And the combination of alcohol and minors is a big deal, as NEWS fans should already know. To quickly summarize, in 2005, NEWS' very own Uchi Hiroki was exiled from the group for underage drinking at the delicate age of 18. FujiTV announcer Yukino Kikuma (33 at the time) was caught with him and even arrested. Infuriated fans, political pressure, and threats from Johnny & Associates forced Fuji to remove Yukino from the air for months.

Surely some backlash must come from these newly revealed details. Wota won’t take kindly to their devoted Momona ditching them for an all-nighter with some D-list Johnny.

Meanwhile, after having already set their own harsh precedent for dealing with underage drinking, will Johnny & Associates really be allowed to ignore Tegoshi’s presence at a boozy party with underage girls?

No doubt more can be expected from this story in the future.

Editor's Note: It was suggested to me that SKE48 should be the headliner here, for obvious reasons.

I love these Johnnys scandal.They do have a love-sex-life outside of the jimusho. Go Tegoshi! But underage drinking, wonder what the penalty for this will be, if there will be any. Likely be swept under the rug.
myharu 10th-Jul-2013 01:12 am (UTC)
lol she's not popular so she's graduating and this is underage drinking so this is more likely to be taken more seriously like that one kid from hsj with his smoking scandal or whatever, idk i don't follow that group

Oops, bit stupid to be caught so close to the concerts. Hope this doesn't impact on the rest of the group. Way to go Tego!

'D-list Johnny' is a tad unkind ><'
nandexdame 10th-Jul-2013 02:23 am (UTC)
he really isn't a D-list johnny though, no matter what news's sales look like. he gets into fairly big drama, movie and CM deals regular enough to at least be a B/B-

someone like shige is D list, my king

I just don't believe tabloids anymore. If it's true though, at least I now know for sure that Tego isn't in love with Massu, and I can have Massu all to myself <3

I'm still not persuaded. There's still the little issue about the arms. Kito's 19, she couldn't be bigger than Tego and I don't think she'd have arms as huge as those in the pic. Not to mention she's from 48. And unless, we see Kito wearing the same nail cuticle as the one in the picture, there's no proof. And until proven, this picture shall remain photo shopped for me.
creeping_jenny 10th-Jul-2013 01:54 am (UTC)
Yes, we have pictures of Kito with the same cuticle nails

Hope this helps!

Random but the reason why she didn't change her shirt was bc she didn't go home yet. Lol bye girl.
cuizy 11th-Jul-2013 03:01 am (UTC)
Seems like such a rookie mistake tho
aibada 10th-Jul-2013 02:00 am (UTC)
LOL, get it!!!
piahawk 10th-Jul-2013 02:15 am (UTC)
lol whoever wrote the article threw so much shade at NEWS, sheesh.

That pic still looks weird tho, why is Tego's head so little?!
tokyocinema 10th-Jul-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing when I saw the picture to the point where I thought it was shopped but now that I see more photos, I can see why:

one) they're making out; two) he's sitting on her damn lap are you kidding me bro you are 25 years old and taking the spoiled thing way too far
nandexdame 10th-Jul-2013 02:21 am (UTC)
lol something about this still doesn't seem right. why not just wait until they separate a little to get the money shot? well he does always say he likes girls in school uniforms so!
apple_fries 10th-Jul-2013 02:23 am (UTC)
lmao just disband NEWS, JE. they're like 8 yrs passed their prime.

How'd she get to stick around if she's already had scandals before? Did she used to be more popular than she is now?
