Esumi Makiko finally responds to vandalism scandal via her blog

Esumi Makiko finally updated her blog on 9 September in response to the recent vandalism scandal plaguing her. According to the 28 August issue of "Shukan Bunshun", Esumi was reportedly exposed by her former manager for instigating him to write graffitti on the walls and garage shutter of Nagashima Kazushige's house back in December 2012 due to a bullying dispute involving their children.

Esumi began by apologising to the public for the controversy surrounding this scandal and the worry and inconvenience caused to all parties involved. However, she denied knowledge of her former manager's actions until the article was published and even revealed that he had contacted her to apologise for the matter being blown out of proportion. Nonetheless, she would still offer her apologies to Nagashima for what happened due to her position (as an artiste whose former manager had done wrong). Esumi then ended her statement that in consideration for Nagashima, her former manager who is undergoing psychiatric treatment and her children, she would refrain from giving too many details on the situation and also apologised for the 12-day delay in releasing her statement.
