Kaori Manabe (29) of Waterboys fame is facing yet another lawsuit. While she is still in the midst of resolving a legal matter with her former agency, Avilla, the company’s president, Masaya Makino (43), filed a separate lawsuit on August 23rd against Manabe, citing defamation.
According to Makino, Ms. Manabe irrevocably damaged his personal reputation once her lawyers presented documents in the Avilla case, stating that some of his clients had quit the agency due to his alleged unsavory conduct. Makino is accused of sexual harassment and forcing female clients to have an abortion if they became pregnant. Makino denies the allegations, and claims that the evidence is based on hearsay and untruths.
Reporters attempting to reach Manabe’s representatives for further comment were unable to contact them. Makino is seeking 100 million yen in compensation for the alleged damages.
