Ayumi’s Lover Gackt Rumored to Have Wife and Daughter Living Abroad
Sugar Ayumi’s lover, the Japanese singer Gackt, is now rumored to have a wife and a daughter living in hiding.
The recent issue of Shukan Bunshun said on September 5 that while Gackt is being investigated by the Japanese Tax Service, it has also been revealed that he has a lover and a daughter living abroad.
The outlet quoted a source close to the woman who had given birth to Gackt’s son to have said, “10 years ago [Gackt] dated a female official of TBS’ Wonderful, and once she got pregnant, he demanded that she move overseas. Instead he provided her with a luxurious condo in Canada and is currently paying the woman to bring up his daughter.”
It also emphasized that it had confirmed there was such a woman living in Canada.
Such suspicions were first voiced by a Japanese right-wing organization. Gackt has often talked about how he loves Korea, and even once allegedly said Dokdo is Korean territory. Though later he denied making such a statement, he has been targeted by the extreme right.
The organization revealed, “Gackt has a four year old daughter. He wanted the child’s mother to keep it a secret, and we can’t forgive him for this.”
On August 28 the Japanese Tax Service ambushed Gackt’s home and investigated documents regarding his fan club’s management fees. It is not certain whether he did use the money, but it seems he can’t avoid criticism that he touched his fan club’s money in any way.
The issue is especially gathering interest as outlets reported that ‘Gackt is pouring his money into the child and wife living in Canada.’
In June Gackt was revealed to be dating former Sugar member Ayumi, and the two became a public couple.
