After being ousted in Hey!Say!JUMP due to underage smoking that was captured by Women’s Weekly, Morimoto Ryutaro is again thrust into gossip pages after being seen with a woman…
Aside from putting Morimoto’s career on hold following his smoking scandal when he was only 14 years old, his profile page from Johnny’s Net was also erased last November. Despite this, there are still fans who are hoping that he’ll resume acting activities once he graduates from Horikoshi Gakuen where he is currently a junior.
However, despite concentrating on his studies, Morimoto was seen snuggling with a woman in a Starbucks branch in Shibuya- Q FRONT, last mid-June. “Ryutaro isn’t wearning any disguise at all, he was sporting a rough style dressed in shirt and khaki trousers while the woman is wearing denim shorts and a black parka. In Starbucks, the woman leans closer to Ryutaro as he circles his hand around her neck. There were many customers during that time but they don’t care and just flirted,” according to a fan witness.
“The friend who was with me was able to take a picture using her cellphone, but Ryutaro saw us and came to us telling that if he we don’t want trouble, we know what to do. [She] was forced to erase the picture on the spot.”
It was said that even the woman with Morimoto have gone pale with Morimoto’s unexpected burst of anger. The woman does not seem to be a model or anyone in the entertainment industry.
“Even though the agency has not made any formal announcement if he will exiting the agency, maybe he [Ryutaro] needs to consider on how to treat a fan better in the future,” according to an entertainment reporter.
While Morimoto is being photograph in Shibuya, his younger brother, Morimoto Shintaro is aiming to take further leap in the industry.
