Former KAT-TUN member and then solo artist Akanishi Jin has just announced on Twitter that he has left his agency Johnny's & Associates. He tweeted the following message in both Japanese and English:

I, Jin Akanishi, have come to an agreement with Johnny's & Associates, Inc. not to continue our contract that expired on 02/28/2014. I have the utmost gratitude for everyone I have worked with and the experiences I've had. To my fans and everyone who has supported me thus far, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

We have agreed to this decision so that I may follow my dream of putting as much energy into my global career as I have here in Japan. I will do everything I can to make new memories with all my supporters, I'm looking forward to sharing my dream with all of you!

The reality?  Johnny probably dumped him since Jin never made it big in America like he swore he would.  Not even Kat-Tun or G-Dragon or Big Bang can make it on the charts here and that's such a shame because they all deserve it.  Jin, not so much.

"After leaving KAT-TUN in 2006, he left to study English in Los Angeles. However, soon after, he caused trouble by reporting his marriage to actress Kuroki Meisa, after it actually happened, to his agency. "

Ummm no...he left KT in 2006 to study abroad in US for about 6 months, then he came back to KT and left the group AGAIN in 2010 to pursue his solo career...he only married Meisa in 2012.
