GACKT to retire then migrate to Malaysia to avoid arrest!!?

One year after GACKT's illegitimate child scandal, disaster relief funds embezzlement allegations, and tax evasion fracas, what has GACKT been doing?
According to an acquaintance of his:
"Almost everyone who has been supporting GACKT is gone now. He's living in the basement of his apartment in Setagaya and is planning to sell the 1st~4th floors of his jewelry store in Kyoto. Even his personal chef has left him, and he's all alone living off cup ramens. He's still dating ICONIQ, and has also been frequenting her unit."
GACKT also switched agencies in March this year from Gordie Entertainment to Hoshi Create. He even declared their plans to establish a GACKT PROJECT team within the year. Two months later in May, a managerial executive from Hoshi established his own company G-PRO, where GACKT followed.

"There's no doubt that he left Gordie to avoid further exposure of tax evasion. He was then able to join industry bigshots Hoshi, but was immediately cut after some financial problems. They probably miscalculated the market value of GACKT, whom they had to pay a large transfer fee for. They explained that he was originally tipped to go independent once making his transfer to Hoshi, but he couldn't attract crowds on his tours and even had to call cabaret club girls and "sakura" to fill in the venues. But it seems that Hoshi did not let go of his fan club which can potentially provide them profit. They probably wanted to earn a few more to even up their investment in GACKT."

He also announced on the last day of his yearly tour VISUALIVE (July 7, Yokohama Arena) that next year's tour will be the last.

"He probably wanted to increase the attendance by implying his retirement, but it seems that he's been frequenting Southeast Asia to look for further business opportunities, and has even requested to migrate to Malaysia. His aunt who was always together with him has also made the necessary arrangements to move base to Hong Kong. They must be panicking with the impending investigation by the tax bureau. His aunt used to be an auditor of Gordie, and she just can't dismiss things by saying 'I am not aware'."

His grandmother, who is one of his biggest supporters and goes to his tours in Tokyo from Okinawa every year, comments:
"He never went back to Okinawa since the fracas last year. But he did contact us and said, 'I'm sorry for not telling you' (about his illegitimate child in Canada)". Ending his live tour next year? I wasn't able to attend this year's tour due to some circumstances so it's my first time hearing this. I wonder why someone who works in show business would say something like that. Even Mr. Ken Ogata, whom he worked with in a period flick, told him to seriously consider becoming a full-time actor, but GACKT refused due to his regrets towards music. He's 40 already so I just hope that he pushes on the path that he chose with dignity."

And then there's NTV who still used him in a drama despite all the commotion surrounding him
6: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 04:44:25.83 ID:cfqw3/3B0
The heck, so he still isn't behind bars?
8: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 04:48:14.08 ID:pVWeLSWG0
So what's the Anti-Organized Crime Law for?
10: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 04:49:06.97 ID:fDeM0k4E0

He should have followed Kyosen Ohashi's example and just transfer base every 3 months between New Zealand, Canada, and Japan. He won't even have to pay for the country's tax then.

Musicians have the option to commence activities in any country that they wish, I really don't get why they just want to stay in one country.
224: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 12:32:52.36 ID:J0IHbVX40
Even if it's for the sake of money, isn't moving every 3 months too much trouble?
12: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 04:50:46.21 ID:ayISpz220
He already seemed fishy the moment he burst into the scene.
He's not as stupid as Manabu Oshio, but they had a similar air about them.
15: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 04:55:20.83 ID:Sjvw9E400
これじゃあ横領だの査察だのはマジだったの? テレビ仕事も減ったのか
So are the embezzlement and tax evasion allegations true? I didn't know that he hasn't been appearing on TV lately since I hardly watch TV anymore.
20: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:07:00.97 ID:zNvkREhG0
I just hope he clarifies where all the donations went to
22: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:11:53.78 ID:4Kvqx+3gO
Was he that strapped for cash when he had to resort to stealing the donations?
38: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:55:19.31 ID:xbbi34VKP

どうやら脱税と横領だったらしいな(´・ω・` )
His songs weren't selling well and his concerts weren't well-attended, but he was spending his money left and right.
Must really be tax evasion and embezzlement (´・ω・` )
26: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:23:15.83 ID:cN/THH/90
What's GACKT's real name again?
31: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:36:31.23 ID:l5coWkgz0
Manabu Okabe
33: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:41:47.87 ID:Sjvw9E400
So he's a fraud?
He's the worst.
40: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 05:57:52.98 ID:BsuJNmJz0
SUGIZO's also with Gordie Entertainment, right?
Drug addict Kawamura and Gackt, all these visual-kei artists seem so shady.
42: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 06:08:02.56 ID:WXFmrmt40
So Bunshun will set their sights once again on GACKT once the ASKA fiasco dies down, huh
44: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 06:16:34.08 ID:GnnYbmWZO
Don't even compare ASKA and GACKT's achievements and value. It's like heaven and hell, diamond and sludge.
47: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 06:22:37.84 ID:28cvMlEgO
I'm pretty sure that he's already about 45, 6.
So he's faking his age backwards by 3, 4 years each time, huh?
51: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 06:32:41.19 ID:ayISpz220
His ex-wife is a Korean, and they spoke in Hangul which doesn't make him a pure Japanese.
54: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 06:52:15.19 ID:enzs0Eo90
I read an article before that GACKT was being investigated yearly.
Isn't that too much?
135: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 09:28:37.56 ID:hezzCQb90
He's already paid \100 million in additional taxes.
69: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 07:35:50.94 ID:bZYTd4cZ0
So he's still not going behind bars?
I thought things made drastic turns already so...
82: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 08:16:32.18 ID:bN6S2fsWI
I thought they were going to ignore all of GACKT's past mishaps when I saw him appearing in Akumu-chan, but I guess things have reached boiling point now.
97: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 08:33:41.17 ID:ey1VohwGO
Really, why is he this rich?
I understand that he has some money, but I think TM's Nishikawa has more hit songs and is richer. Does this guy even have any popular songs?
215: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 12:13:41.01 ID:T8wxzvwm0

Earnings-wise, I think it's a huge win for Nishikawa.
It really is a mystery as to where GACKT's money comes from.
123: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 09:02:33.19 ID:Nqp6rwLvO
ICONIQ is surprisingly pretty loyal, huh.
To think that this is a money-hungry guy who'll easily betray others once he's spared.
133: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 09:22:19.77 ID:J/ce2smU0
I know someone who's a huge fan of GACKT, and doesn't believe anything bad reported about him.
I think he's still pretty safe as long as he still has these blind fans.
171: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 11:15:07.28 ID:3g5hMtVcO
GACKT's girlfriend ICONIQ is also hated in Korea so he can't move to Korea.
GACKT's fluent in Mandarin so he probably wanted to move somewhere where he can speak the language.
204: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 11:49:46.62 ID:/xfLivMyP
Someone I know is a major believer of his, and is pretty annoying. I don't mind people worshipping him, just don't propagate it to others.
205: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 11:53:02.70 ID:X6DWiE5Q0

> sell the 1st~4th floors of his jewelry store in Kyoto

Kyoto jewelry store... is it GemCEREY?
207: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 11:57:46.96 ID:X6DWiE5Q0

When I looked at the blog of GemCEREY's president, one of the entries went,
"I went to the Chokaigi with GACKT" \(^o^)/
It looks like they're talking about GemCEREY.
259: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 13:14:47.77 ID:T8wxzvwm0
GemCEREY's that jewelry store which uses a lot of visual-kei bands to promote them, right?
214: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 12:13:24.51 ID:BCWngoAzO
Has hyde forsaken him too?
219: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/11(日) 12:22:49.76 ID:SFVFwgcn0

I still can't forgive him for stealing all those donations.
This guy should be driven to the edge once.

今のGACKTは糞だと思うが、当時MALICE MIZERの音楽とGacktの美しさに心を奪われた身としては切ないなぁ…どうしてこうなった
I do think GACKT is shi+ these days, but I really feel miserable for liking Malice Mizer's music and falling for GACKT's beauty back in the day... Why did things turn out like this?
