Note: Since so many people keep emailing us about this let me point out that even though Julia Voth is Canadian, this is not an article written by the Shattered-Tranquility.net staff. It is merely a translation of what was found in the Japanese news. Please stop emailing us about this. We did not write the article (and frankly it’s only here because it’s about Yoshiki).
It’s been a while since we’ve had a good rumour here on Shattered-Tranquility and I do apologize for taking so long to get this one up. I unfortunately haven’t had the time to translate the article until now, but hopefully it’s enjoyable all the same.
A few days ago Japanese tabloids, talk shows and newspapers were all chatting about YOSHIKI’s AMERICAN GIRLFRIEND. The following is a translation of an article posted on a Japanese news site about the whole ordeal.
Lately it would seem like X JAPAN’s leader, YOSHIKI is believed to have a favourite American woman. Julia Voth an American model, who is currently flourishing as an actress. At this year’s Grammy Awards she was with YOSHIKI walking down the red carpet, and last month was seen at X JAPAN’s performance at Tokyo Dome. YOSHIKI says lightly that she’s just one of his good friends, but it seems like with the world as their stage, their relationship is getting attention.
Julia Voth is a beautiful, slender woman who is in her early twenties and has long black hair. She’s done modelling in the United States as well as acting, and has experience as a model for the brand known in Japan and around the world, GUESS. YOSHIKI is currently living in Los Angeles and his name is becomming familiar in the United States as he has done things like worked carefully on theme song, “I.V.” for the American film “SAW4″ and is producing Sarah Brightman’s music for the movie “Repo”. So to speak, the two of them are a “celebrity couple”.
In February, they appeared on the red carpet together in Los Angeles at the “50th Grammy Awards”. It was an event where world-leading reporters gathered to completely cover the event, and overseas sites have also published photos showing the relationship.
Furthermore, in March Julia made an appearance at X JAPAN’s revival live. They say that although there was a great number of foreign fans at the live, amongst them all her beauty stood out. At the launch for the final day of the revival lives, she ran to YOSHIKI’s side, and greeted the other staff members. Only the members and familiar staff members were present at the launch and as for YOSHIKI, it seemed like they were “close friends”.
After the lives were over, YOSHIKI had press conferences to talk about X JAPAN’s live at Madison Square Garden, and the hide Memorial Summit, and all the while Julia stayed in Japan. At that time, eye-witnesses gathered news of the two of them enjoying a meal together in the metropolitan area.
Thus far there have been numerous reports about YOSHIKI in Los Angeles. In 2003 at the world premier for the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”, he was seen in the company of the actress, Virginia Madsen. Many rumours spread about their connection, but YOSHIKI stated they were only friends.
According to YOSHIKI’s representatives, YOSHIKI and Julia’s relationship is that they are close friends. As expected, with YOSHIKI’s vast range of connections, it’s quick to decide that this is a sure thing, however, from now on the course their relationship will be watched.
But wait, I have more! Here’s a small segment from a Japanese TV show about the couple. Okay, it’s basically just showing the photo, zoom in, zoom out, zoom in, zoom out. But now you know the spread of this rumour, haha.
And just in case anyone’s interested, through Googling Julia (to find out who the heck she was) I came across this page that had some of her modeling photos. Check it out.
