Former member of the popular idol group "KAT-TUN", Kiyoshi Tanaka (37), was arrested.

According to the police, in June last year, a female acquaintance in Fushimi Ward, Kyoto, who acted as an intermediary for her live performance, said on SNS, "Even if it's just a second, get 100,000 ears and pay properly." There is a suspicion of blackmail that he sent a message and threatened him and made him remit 10,000 yen in cash.

After leaving "KAT-TUN", he was doing live activities, but he threatened the woman who mediated the performance with a fate that the performance fee was not paid.

In June, Tanaka was on trial for violating the stimulants control law for possessing and using stimulants in Chiba Prefecture, but was arrested by the police on the 29th and was taken into custody on the night of the 29th. Moved to Kyoto.

In response to the police investigation, he said, "I can't say anything right now. I will think about it after consulting with a lawyer."

Police are investigating the details of what happened.
