However, it seems that winning major awards and public attention at the age of 19 has caused Arata Mackenyu a lot of trouble.

Next, the identity of Arata Mackenyu’s child’s mother was also revealed and truly shocked the public. According to Japanese media, the biological mother of Arata Mackenyu’s child is a close friend of the actor’s mother. This person is 30 years older than Arata Mackenyu. Not only that, at the time of the relationship with Arata Mackenyu, this woman was already married. This means that this woman not only committed adultery but also had sex with a minor.
Initially, when evidence had not been presented, the public, especially Arata Mackenyu’s fans, still hoped that it was all just baseless rumors. However, when the media turned up the lawsuit allegedly related to Arata Mackenyu in 2013, the public was depressed and disappointed. At the same time, it is completely true that Arata Mackenyu had a relationship with a woman over 30 years old and gave birth.

Arata Mackenyu’s family even filed a lawsuit in the US court, denouncing Y-san’s illicit behavior with their son. However, Arata Mackenyu himself later denied being forced into the relationship and affirmed that this was mutual consent.
When the incident gradually went into oblivion, Arata Mackenyu caused a stir in the online community with the news that he was dating a married woman over 30. According to media reports, Arata Mackenyu and this woman met since 2018 and started dating in 2019. Some time later, this woman also divorced and secretly dated Arata Mackenyu.
Arata Mackenyu’s personal life is said to be a “drama” like a movie, which is not wrong. Because the male actor is constantly entangled in love scandals. In 2022, YouTuber Higashiya Yoshikazu revealed that Arata Mackenyu has many extremely complicated relationships.
Not stopping there, Arata Mackenyu was also accused by this male YouTuber of regularly cheating on married women. The actor was once investigated for drugs due to his relationship with actress Sawajiri Erika. The two had a one-night stand before the actress was arrested for drug use. According to media revelations, Sawajiri Erika often used drugs during sex at that time.
The male YouTuber revealed that he was threatened by Arata Mackenyu. Accordingly, the male actor asked Japanese gangsters to threaten and force this male YouTuber to stay silent. Of course, with these accusations, Arata Mackenyu kept silent as a denial.
