The multi-talented former vocalist of Malice Mizer has never revealed his true profile, and with a mysterious aura around him, is a celebrity in the world of show business. For the ambiguity in GACKT’s accumulated fortune, the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau was obligated to open an investigation into his finances. When they did, it became evident that GACKT has a mistress and an illegitimate child overseas.
On August 28th, officials from the taxation bureau, inspected his apartment, known for being the head office for GACKT’s entertainment business, Godey Holdings, as well as his and his family’s home.
A friend of GACKT’s stated,
“The officers not only did a complete investigation of the company, but also of GACKT’s home, and even confiscated his cell phone. Every year GACKT pays an additional tax of 120,000,000 yen to avoid these types of investigations, and therefore as expected, he is extremely shocked about the inspection”.
While collecting information about GACKT’s financial flow, we’ve also come to understand the flow of money being used for his overseas lover. Another friend broke the silence about this detail stating:
“About ten years ago, he was in a relationship with an assistant girl who worked on the TBS-kei show, Wonderful, but when knowledge of her pregnancy came into light, he demanded that she leave Japan, and that he did not acknowledge the child. Instead, he has taken care of them by setting both the girlfriend and child up in a high class condominium in Canada”.
Canada confirmed that the girlfriend does exist.
The investigation started in the early morning, and lasted for a long period of time and along with his cell phone, the officers also confiscated his account book and computer. The investigation started when the tax office realised that he had been evading taxes, and collecting black money.
A TV Report recently reported the theories of the investigators:
“The girl was pregnant and if it was exposed to the fans that GACKT was a man with a wife and kids it would ruin his image. Worrying about the girl, it was decided that she would be taken care of with a life overseas, and that GACKT would not acknowledge the child”.
The woman and child are currently living together in Vancouver in an apartment that costs 400,000 yen a month in rent.
From October, GACKT was scheduled to appear as a regular guest on Kitagawa Keiko’s Nippon TV drama, Akumachan. Will this situation affect his career
