LONDBOY's Rio had been Arrested

LONDBOY's guitarist Rio had been arrested on April 11th.

News spread wide of 24-year-old Rio (real name: Murata Kenta) who has been arrested this week. The reason for his arrestment was his sexual relationship with an under-aged girl in September and October 2016. 

According to TV Asahi, in January 2017 Rio went to the police himself to consult about problems with fans related to his band activities. Following this action it came to light that Rio had a sexual relationship with an under-aged girl that became a fan of LONDBOY back in March 2016. The guitarist admits this relationship but states that he didn't know she was under-aged - while the girl insists that she told him about her age and her being in her 2nd year of high school.

LONDBOY posted an official statement on April 12th saying that Rio is released again but the band will decide what to do from hereon and how the news will affect their further band activities. The oneman live on April 15th will be held without Rio.
