Yuki Kaji is one of the anime industry's most famous talents, but the star is not immune to controversy. Earlier this year, the Attack on Titan lead was in the headlines after he married a fellow voice actress, but rumors have since cropped up about Kaji which has upset his talent agency.

As reported by Anime News Network, the talent agency VIMS announced plans to take legal actions over rumors involving Kaji. The company said any rumors spread about Kaji's past relationships "baseless and defamatory" as well as a violation of privacy and personal rights.

Currently, VIMS has retained the Gladiator law firm to track the growing rumors and take legal action against those who originated them in possible.

For those curious about the rumors, they do involve Kaji and a past romance of his. Netizens are said to have made up rumors which involve Kaji's previous relationships and how they intersected with one another. But as VIMS reports, these rumors are completely unfounded.

Currently, Kaji is working on in Japan as an in-demand voice actor. The star plays Eren Jaeger in Attack on Titan. He also voices Issei Hyodo in High School DxD, Yukine in Noragami, Todoroki Shoto in My Hero Academia, Kozume Kenma in Haikyuu, and many more. He married fellow actress Ayana Taketatsu earlier this year.

Attack on Titan was originally created by Hajime Isayama, and the series has since been collected into 23 volumes as of 2017. It's set in a world where the last remnants of humanity live within a walled city in order to escape the danger of the Titans, a race of giants monsters that eats humans. The lead character, Eren Yeager, ends up joining the military with his two childhood friends Mikasa and Armin after the Titans break through the wall and attack his hometown. Now Eren, Mikasa, and Armin must survive in a world where they not only have the Titans to fear, but the very humans they are trying to save. You can currently find the series streaming on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Saturday nights on Adult Swim's Toonami block.
