President of influential Japanese talent agency resigns amid confirmation of founder’s decades-long sexual abuse

The president of a renowned Japanese entertainment agency, Johnny & Associates, has resigned following an independent investigation substantiating allegations of sexual abuse by the company’s founder, Johnny Kitagawa, spanning over five decades since the 1970s. Despite long-standing accusations, media largely ignored them until a BBC documentary in March brought renewed attention to the issue. Kitagawa’s niece, Julie Keiko Fujishima, who has served on the company’s board since 1998 and became president in 2019, resigned from her position. Noriyuki Higashiyama, a singer and actor not subjected to Kitagawa’s abuse, is set to become the new president, pledging reforms within the company. Kitagawa’s accusers are considering legal actions in Japan and abroad. Johnny & Associates continues to manage influential musical acts in Japan’s entertainment industry.
