According to the publication, YOU was GACKT's classmate in college and is his best friend. This was apparently common knowledge among the fans. But it's also said that YOU is currently in the process of getting a divorce from his wife of 10 years.
According to the wife, YOU has been composing the majority of GACKT's songs ever since he went solo. GACKT would write the lyrics at times, or would just let YOU do everything on his own, but all credits go to GACKT.
And upon completion of the tune, YOU would charge GACKT's management office which is handled by his sister, and would get paid approximately \500,000 per song. The article in FLASH has also published the copy of a deposit slip and details of the bank book in its article.
"I don't think GACKT will be able to talk his way out of this one anymore. Due to all of the allegations thrown his way, his scope of activities is now only limited to concerts and the theatrical plays that he produces, as it's gotten quite difficult for him to even make a TV appearance. Even if they do decide to make a sequel of Akumu-chan which was recently adapted for the silver screen, I don't think that he'll be receiving the offer to do it anymore." - (TV staff)
It doesn't seem like GACKT's case will escalate to similar proportions with the recent ghost writer scandal of composer Mamoru Samuragochi, but further speculations continue to come up from this, as YOU's wife has also revealed some private matters about GACKT. YOU and the missus lived together with GACKT in his condo unit and she reveals, "I've seen the actress with whom he was rumored in the tabloids. She was living together with GACKT at one point.".
This actress is assumed to be Yumiko Shaku, who coincidentally updated her blog on the 12th, the day of her birthday, and denied any romantic relationship with GACKT (without mentioning his name). People will be on the lookout as to how things will develop here as well.
Isn't anything and everything about this guy fake? w
I don't think any ghost can write such boring songs, though
Here's a bit of trivia. All talents appearing in the Kakudzuke Check have shady histories.
So even if he has a ghost writer for his songs, do you think that him getting all those answers correct is staged? Hey horny man, please tell me the answer.
I don't care about ghosts. Gackt's songs are generally boring.
He was a total amateur and was just a host until Malice Mizer's Mana scouted him, so there's no way he can compose music. Maybe he can't even read musical scores?
There's no way GACKT would plagiarize stuff. It's all his ghost's fault.
Now this is funny w
His songs are monotonous. His arrangements are of only a single pattern.
No surprises here
I don't get surprised by anything anymore if it's about GACKT w
I'm more surprised that GACKT was actually a college graduate. And another surprise that he was actually writing songs (or he's supposed to be).
Things just keep coming up about him one after another
His face is fake too
I'm looking forward to what Mr. Fairy will say as an excuse (^O^)
Not that I'm defending him, but this is totally different from Samuragochi's case if there's no evidence. Worst case scenario, it's a pattern where the other party would actually suffer the bigger defeat...
Samuragochi can't play the piano, but at least GACKT can
GACKT's got a lot of stuff being reported about him. Does this just mean that he has a lot of enemies?
Internet badasses probably haven't read the original article, but this shi++y wife was essentially saying: "My husband wrote the music for him so he should've been receiving much more than this!". I personally think there's no problem about this since YOU himself has agreed to the composition fee.
Well, he's just portraying this character named "GACKT" so what's the problem?
I wonder why, but I'm not surprised at all
What about the Z Gundam song??
But the piano skills he showed on TV was really something, so I don't think that everything was the work of his ghost
But why are all of his releases so lame even though he uses a ghost?
It won't become a hit anyway, so 500,000 is just right
another world と three small words について絶対にググるなよ？ 絶対だぞ！！！！！
Cut the crap, GACKT's got this calssic song "Three small words" which he sang at the Kouhaku!
And remember, never, ever Google about "another world" and "three small words". Got that? Never ever!!!!
This woman's shi+. Hasn't she thought about the future of the husband after they get their divorce? These exposés should be done by the ghost himself.
I thought that this thread would be filled with
"This YOU person's wife is so shi+, goes on exposing stuff like this just because they're heading into splitsville",
but that totally wasn't the case (´・ω・｀)
YOU's wife just lowered the value of her husband. Samuragochi's ghost wrote an amazing piece for him, but in GACKT's case!!
And I don't think there'd be any harm done on GACKT even if you start talking about his ghost. The fanbase is just different.
Well in GACKT and his ghost writer's case, they've been plagiarizing songs left and right in the first place.
This is different in essence from Samuragochi's case. For him, it used to be: "Wow, he may be deaf but he's composing symphonies! Amazing!" → "I didn't compose it. And I can also hear."
俺はＺガンダムの映画の曲1曲しか知らんし、 あの曲が他人が作った曲だからってフーンだけだよ そもそも作曲能力ある気しねえし
I don't think this will blow up since not a lot of people actually know about Gackt's songs. I myself only know the Z Gundam movie song. And even if I found out that someone else composed that, I'd just go "Ah, really". I never even thought he had the ability to compose in the first place.
Looks like there's certainly someone in the industry who bears a grudge against GACKT. But even after all these scandals, nothing really happens to him. I'm not sure about this incident, but it seems that he did talk about this when I looked at his blog.
GACKT more or less takes the same pattern as Michael Jackson so what's the big deal? I think that his fans enjoy him for his character.
His face is a ghost as well.
Ah sorry, plastic surgery w
Keep the noise down until after the World Cup is done
He's good friends with hyde, right? I hope he doesn't influence him in a bad way...
Hey, anyone, no mention of Shaku? www
The GACKT bashing has been so abnormal these days
He's just gonna comment about this on his blog
"I have been able to create wonderful lyrics and melody. I have been working on the lyrics for the past 4 months and couldn't bring myself to finish it, but just like that, I was able to get everything done yesterday". "I believe that I'll be able to deliver this tune to all of you around September. It will be a magnificent song that will go beyond your imagination."
Then GACKT commented on the report about the ghost writer: "It seems that there's shi+ going around that I have a ghost writer, but to be honest it all sounds dumb..."
"Just do as you please. Doesn't the world have anything better to do? There's just too many fools out there... I myself don't feel like dealing with such fools...".
GACKT continued by talking about his grandmother who recently passed away and a conversation that they had when he went home to Okinawa recently. "My aunties would always make fuss about the various gossip going around about me, but my grandmother would always tell them to just leave it be, and didn't say anything more. She smiled and told me, "Really... it was so troublesome...", but she didn't say anything further. She kept supporting me, and I thank her for that. I would like to dedicate this new song to my grandmother who passed away. Let's keep on fighting until the very end."
Didn't that report hit the nail on the head?
Why is he raging? Was it spot on?
Such a strong feeling of déjà vu
GACKT seems to be so busy dealing with these accusations one after another www
It's so easy to make this guy mad
The way he makes rebuttals is always the same w
Reacting to each and every single thing makes him look like small fry
He made his counterargument already? How fast w
There he goes again. Always saying that it's all stupid. It would be better for him if he just kept his mouth shut.
And as usual, he doesn't directly deny and say "I didn't do it"
A blog counterargument comedian www
He doesn't show evidence when he makes his rebuttal. All he does is lash out on them and whine. It's the same as that person who claims that she found this amazing cell.
The way he reacted is weird. Something's definitely fishy.
So he's not exactly denying it, huh
"It will be a magnificent song that will go beyond your imagination"
Why are they all focusing so much on GACKT? Is his agency weak?
Why don't you spill the beans as to who's pressuring you? You'll never know, some people might side with you and root for you depending on who your opponent is.
These reports still haven't gone beyond the realm of hearsay. He's probably had an agreement already with the ghost about this. Maybe something like "Return all the money I paid you if you reveal the truth".
This guy never denies it, huh w
I've gotten this impression that all these rumors about him are getting promptly extinguished. If all of them were true, then things would have already gotten out of hand a long time ago, right?
Why doesn't he want to come out in the open and settle the truth once and for all. Then all the doubts will disappear, and he'd even earn money?
Doesn't deny the report and just says "dumb"
Another recycled comment? w
It's so funny whenever you see him reacting so quickly like this, it's so obvious that he's concerned about his reputation w I can totally imagine him trembling in anger.
Same reaction as the drug abuse allegations a while back w A dumb guy who can only call others "dumb" as well.
Samuragochi: "That's right! That's right!"
Gackt should go talk directly to YOU's wife
I don't care about the ghost. Just don't get arrested because of drugs, ok? (´･ω･`)
Must be so hard for him, one after another
What's amazing about him is that despite all these allegations, there's not a single conclusive evidence found against him. Now that it's come to this, I actually couldn't care less anymore.
Before you know it, he's become an "ijirare chara" (a person who's always bullied and made fun of).
Having this many responses about him proves that he's popular.
The opposite of "like" isn't "dislike" but "uninterested".
