Only three months after the arrival of their son, Future Zahir, he shared:
And the response to his album, Honest, didn't help his situation either.
Producer Mike Will Made-It even chimed in:

This is BEYOND disturbing!
Paparazzi caught a young man sneaking out of a beautiful young Japanese pop-star's apartment one recent morning, and the girl was so ashamed of her own behavior she took it out on her hair!
Minegishi Minami of the Japanese super-group AKB48 let her boyfriend sleep over the other night. While a 20-year-old woman getting laid isn't headline news in these parts, the pop star's sexual proclivities were a BIG deal in Japan!
Her actions angered her fans and shamed her bandmates to such a degree, it seems, that Minegishi decided to shave her head in shame!!
Press PLAY on the pretty disturbing video (above) to see her heartbreaking apology and read the translation (below)!
UGH! That's so sad she felt the need to do that!!
Can you imagine if pop stars from the States and Europe behaved similarly? They'd all be bald, LOLz!
Here is her translated statement:
I’m Minegishi Minami from Umeda team B of AKB48.
I’m very sorry to have caused enormous worry to members, fans, staffs, my families and a lot of other people with the article in the weekly magaizne that is published today.
As the 1st generation member of AKB48, the group that has formed in 2005, it’s my responsibility to always behave as a good role model to juniors. I deeply regret what I did this time. It was a thoughtless deed and I was completely lacking self-awareness as a senior member.
My brain blanked out and I’m still unable to figure out what to do, what I can do. But after I saw the magazine a little ago, I couldn’t help but doing something. And I decided to shave my head without consulting any member or staff at my agency.
Although I don’t think I would be forgiven by doing this, the first thing that I went through my head was that “I don’t want to leave AKB48.”
This is a place where my dear members, who I spent my blossom of youth together, are. And it’s unimaginable to even think about leaving the group where I’m with so many wonderful and sweet fans.
I understand it’s wishful thinking, but if it’s possible, I would like to still be AKB48′s Minegishi Minami.
This is all my fault.
I’m truly sorry.
I will leave my hereafter to the hands of Akimoto-sensei and management.
Though I haven’t been able to tidy my mind up, but I just wanted to tell my current feeling to you.
Thank you so much for listening to me.
