The notorious career ruiner strikes again—this time, it’s his band members’ at stake.
Enon Kawatani, the vocalist of Gesu no Kiwami Otome and Indigo la End, has suspended his band’s activities after being caught drinking with his girlfriend, 19-year-old actress Honoka Rin only days before she turned the legal drinking age in Japan.
Check out what he and his label had to say below:
His label SPACE SHOWER NETWORK commented:
Thank you for your support of indigo la End and Gesu no Kiwami Otome.
Following unsatisfactory reports at this time, as the company affiliated with Kawatani Enon, the vocalist of indigo la End and Gesu no Kiwami Otome, we regretfully confirm that he had been drinking alcohol with a minor.
This is a very serious offense.
After the completion of some currently scheduled activities, it has been decided by Kawatani Enon and band members that both bands will halt activities until further notice.
We apologize for the inconvenience and for worrying fans and stakeholders.

It is with deep regrets to say, after the completion of some currently scheduled activities, I decided to voluntarily refrain from further activities.
To all the fans that were looking forward to new music, I’m deeply sorry.
Please accept my heartfelt apologies.
