FRIDAY Claims Hiroki Narimiya Does Cocaine and Other Drugs

Today, FRIDAY published an article stating that actor Hiroki Narimiya does cocaine. Completely denying the report, Narimiya’s office is threatening to take legal measures against FRIDAY because they say the article lacks any grounds and is false.  Narimiya has also released a statement saying he does not do drugs at all and that he resents FRIDAY for publishing the article. He also apologized for causing his fans any concern.

The article in question has a distorted photo of Narimiya in his home on November 9th with white powder on the table. FRIDAY claims that this white powder is cocaine. A fake friend of Narimiya’s is the one who gave the photo to FRIDAY and he claims that Narimiya does other drugs such as cannabis and ketamine. Additionally, according to Narimiya’s so called friend, Narimiya also does drugs in the VIP rooms of popular clubs in Roppongi and Nishiazubu.

So Arama what do you think of this scandal. Is Narimiya telling the truth or is he another celebrity to get busted by FRIDAY?

      To be honest I saw the magazine and there was no white powder on the table. I call this bullshit. Everyone is just so tired of hearing and talking about ASKA’s drug abuse that they just needed a new story.

      If he does drugs or not, the pictures published proves nothing.

      • Hermione48fan

        He needs to sue them as soon as possible, tired of tabloids making up stories like this one.

        • HyperMoot .

          “tired of tabloids” is enough, the rest is redundant

    • tiffany nicole

      It was obviously from a powder donut duh

    • Jo

      I would say I wouldn’t be surprised if he does. It’s showbiz after all.
      But it sounds like a setup if his friend really leaked the photo. Would be some breakup fight and the other person wanted to get back at him.

      Cocaine’s a hell of a drug!

    • Ryusei

      not buying it…

      “Narumiya” you might want to fix that typo.

      • Owatari

        Thanks. <3 I just noticed that too.

    • Reileen

      Fake friend??
      Sue them till the end if it’s not true, Narimiya!

      • miya

        I’m surprised when some say if he’s suing them then Nari really was doing it :/.
        If I’m a celeb and falsely accused of career-suicide drug scandal, I would totally take legal action to clear my name and make those tabloids pay.

        • miya

          correction, not some but apparently a lot Japanese people think legal action = guilty.

          Wtf man. I’m Asian but I don’t agree with this no-action stance against slander, especially when it threatens others livelihood.

    • eplizo

      I mean I wouldn’t be surprised, but you need harder evidence to prove it lol. I believe him until proven otherwise.

    • Encha277

      Forgive my ignorance, but is drug use really that rare among Japanese celebrities? I know drugs are generally harder to come by and punishments are much stricter in Japan, but like with most things, money & status would make them pretty readily available.

      • mikamika

        I guess that if you really wanted to (and have the money and connections), you can get any drug in Japan – just like in any other place around the world. From what I gather, the public opinion towards drugs is strict in Japan, so the celebs try to stear clear of even the slightest suspicion in that direction. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some (or many, who knows?) who consume drugs.

      “A fake friend of Narumiya’s”


      • ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ

        I snorted at that man, lmao

      • Owatari

        It was my poor attempt at adding some “spice” to my normally bland articles. lol

    • miya

      Drug scandals are career suicide in Japan. Hoping its not true

      • Guest

        they really are not. unless you are legit charged with something (which won’ happen due to this artcile).

        • miya

          *sigh* I don’t mean “scandal” as in rumors but “an action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage.“. And I added “hoping its not true” meaning that I hope this is not legit or there will be any cause for legit charge on him.

      • Gisele

        They are not if you’re really good at what you do. Imai Hisashi comes to my mind.

        • miya

          That Buck Tick guy is a lead guitarist & songwriter. His skills has a steeper learning curve than something more subjective like acting. Nari is also way more famous while Imai rarely seen on tv. Japanese actor/actress (or tv personality) who were caught with drugs almost never will ever regain back their career.

    • surfboardt

      ngl, if I were a celebrity, I would have to fight so hard to not reference this in a statement addressing any cocaine rumors.

    • Sawacchi

      wow I hope the denial is true! He’s a great actor and one of my faves

    • otokodemoonna

      I believe nari kun

    • nothingsover

      Nari has had basically no scandals throughout his entire career. (Except the thing where everyone thinks he’s gay). I’d be fairly shocked if a drug scandal occurred, not because it’s unlikely that he does them, but because I don’t think he’s dumb enough to get caught with it.

    • ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ

      My base assumption for all celebs that reach a certain amount of fame, is that they are doing drugs in vips rooms, lmao.

    • Ztf

      This is too much. F**k you friday!

    • Guest

      Drugs are much more common among Japanese celebs than we think. I mean, the Japanese entertainment world is literally run by yakuza and they’re all involved in the drug trade so like…. y’all think those celebs are really drug-free?

      • miya

        RME. As jaded as I am with yakuzaXj-ent cooperation, “they’re all involved in drug trade” is just a simpleminded generalization. These people know how serious it is to get caught and knowing Japanese culture are overall stickler for rules, the probability of entertainers being clean off drugs is higher than you would shallowly assume.

    • mikamika

      Don’t really believe it. I think if it were true, they’d get more than “a friend says” and a photo that doesn’t proof anything.

      But of course “drugs!” and any celebs name sells 😒

    • Pirado

      I hope it’s a lie, he is a great actor and things like that can end your career.

    • pandaa2016

      Colored pics for anyone interested

    • bec2224

      In the first picture I see beer cans, cigarettes, a lighter, what looks like a store bought bento box, a few plastic bags and some other things that can’t be made out. What makes me suspicious is that why in the third picture is the bag of coke and long spoon now on the table all by it self?

    • Nic


    • Not him … I’m really fucking sad right now, it is one of my favorite actor. Waking up and seeing this news is one of the most horrible thing that could happen. How can this happen. Like wtf.. He is a sublime actor it can’t end up like that …

    • MoocowPoorchick

      Whoever that friend is…i hope they’re proud of themselves for making a very talented actor quit. I hope the few yen you can get for bullshit like that were worth it.

    • well…I don’t care I like him the way he is
