Reports on Kago Ai's problem with her agency, new boyfriend, and Kago's refutation
On June 7th, Nikkan Sports reported that Kago Ai is having issues with her management agency over her contract. Additionally, it was also reported that Kago is living with a man in his 40s (written as "A") on the latest issue of "Josei Jishin."
According to the Nikkan Sports' report, Kago claimed to be independent from the agency back in January through the man "A", however, the agency refused since there were 2 more years remaining on the contract. It also reports that Kago has canceled some of her schedules at the last minute ever since she started dating this man which caused the agency to suspend her activities. Despite this, Kago has opened her blog and even held a live without getting permission by the agency.
When "Nittere News 24" asked the agency for a comment, the agency stated, "It's true that she is with this man, and that she has canceled some works as it was reported. We would like to discuss it over with her, but there is nothing we can do since this man is there (as a negotiator and mediator). It seems like she is somewhat controlled by this man, so currently we can not set any schedule for her."
On the same day on June 7th, Kago also made a new blog entry titled "About the news article." Kago wrote, "It's true that I left my former agency 'MAINSTREAM Inc.', however there are some points different from the fact, therefore, I'm posting this to alleviate some of your worries. Although I was indebted a lot by the agency when I made a comeback, we had discussed many times about our different directions toward my career since last October. Unfortunately, I had to give up on working with them as a result. I have canceled the contract officially through a lawyer in November. Canceling the contract is not due to my selfishness, and it was a cancellation according with the law. Although I received an objection about the cancellation by 'MAINSTREAM Inc.', the discussion ended without any details from them."
She also wrote about the man, "The man who was reported is one of the people who have been supporting me for this transfer. I'm currently working on the transfer with the backing of several people."
In the end of the blog entry, Kago stated, "I, Kago Ai, will never do anything to betray the fans anymore. Please continue to support me."
