Kamen Rider Agito actor and Junretsu music group member Yusuke Tomoi announced at a press conference last Friday that he will retire from the entertainment business after admitting to allegations of domestic violence, theft, and adultery from three women.
Tomoi admitted that all the allegations regarding his behavior made by a Japanese weekly magazine were true. The allegations included multiple instances of assault toward an unnamed woman he was dating at the time, a separate woman from whom he stole 30 million yen (about US$277,200), and yet another married woman whom he dated and committed adultery with.
Tomoi played the character Ryou Ashihara/Kamen Rider Gills in the 2001 Kamen Rider Agito show. He married actress Mika Katsumura in 2006, who gave birth to a daughter in the same year. The pair divorced in 2008.
