[BREAKING] SMAP rumored to be disbanding

On January 12, a few media outlets reported that SMAP is disbanding.

According to Sponichi Annex, on the 12th, the group's 58-year-old female manager who is often described as their 'foster parent', resigned from the position of director from J Dream, Inc., a subsidiary company of Johnny's & Associates, inc., and she will also be leaving Johnny & Associates, Inc. next month.

Apparently, four members out of five; Nakai Masahiro, Inagaki Goro, Kusanagi Tsuyoshi, and Katori Shingo also showed their intentions of leaving the agency with her, while Kimura Takuya decided to stay with the company.

Therefore, the media outlets reported that it could be a disbandment of the group.

This news has not only shocked the group's fans, but the entire country as well.

There is no official announcement nor any comment regarding this matter at this moment, so stay tuned for further reports.
