Singer Ayumi Hamasaki implicated in drug scandal?

Japanese pop princess Ayumi Hamasaki’s record label Avex Trax, a subsidiary of Avex Entertainment, has reportedly been trying to transfer her management rights for one billion yen ($15 million) after the singer became embroiled in a drug scandal involving colleague Manabu Oshio.

According to Japanese media reports, Avex arrived at this decision to prevent her drug scandal from affecting the record label’s stock prices, though industry observers say the figure is simply too low to be true.

Oshio was arrested in December last year on suspicion of giving the recreation drug Ecstacy to a hostess who later died of an overdose.
