Japanese tabloid FRIDAY came out with a story recently alleging that GACKT and ICONIQ are dating. The pictures they took of the two looked convincing and their agencies didn’t issue denials, so it seems likely they actually are. While that’s all well and good, all I saw was an announcement that ICONIQ’s life was about to end.
Weekly tabloid magazine “FRIDAY” has reported that singers GACKT (38) and ICONIQ (27) are currently in a relationship! The latest magazine issue released on June 22nd contains photos of the alleged couple together.
According to FRIDAY, the rumored couple went to a high class French restaurant and dined there for around three hours eating and sipping wine. In one of the photos, the rumored couple can be seen gazing at each other and holding hands. When they parted, they gave each other a hug. GACKT and ICONIQ both appeared to be very happy.
The couple became acquainted through the music festival “a-nation” last year and became closer when they met together with staff to go out and eat. According to officials, their relationship is starting to truly blossom.
When Sankei Sports approached GACKT and ICONIQ’s companies neither negated the rumor, but said, “It’s their private lives and they can do what they wish.”
I suppose the whole Japanese/Korean relationship angle is a bit interesting, but the more interesting storyline to follow is how long it takes before GACKT’s psychotic troupe of fans kills ICONIQ is some mass Julius Caesar-esque stabbing.
I would like to be joking, but GACKT’s last wife was Korean as well (not sure that had anything to do with it), and they were basically forced to divorce because his fans kept threatening her.
So while it’s great that they’re in a relationship, I just hope she knows what she’s in for.
