There is no way Jiraiya is the akatsuki leader, Pein was already revealed to be the leader. But the one pulling all there strings has a high possibility of being Jiraiya.
Not jaraiya, most likely someone related to Naruto is the one pulling the strings. I haven't read all the manga but his parents aren't really mentioned.Besides what Itachi said "legacy of the 4th". Though the 4th was most likely his father. But is he really dead? Am I missing something? Please let me know.
i can't believe people really believe that jiraiya is the mastermind behind akatsuki that's just absurd. jiraiya is loyal to the leaf village and has no intentions of betraying it. well you might now ask how does jiraiya know about akatsuki. well we know that he was following orochimaru when he was still in akatsuki and we know that jiraiya came up with the spying jutsu to peek at nude women cuz he's a pervert, so he could have used this jutsu to spy on akatsuki. we also know that each akatsuki member usually has surbordinates that they usually use some form of jutsu to control. the only exception would be zetsu because he didn't control tobi so tobi could actually be a spy for jiraiya. like i said earlier akatsuki members usually used jutsus to control their surbordinates so maybe jiraiya broke the seal. i mean it's not like this kind of thing hasn't been done in the manga note kabuto. kabuto was once under sasori's control but orochimaru broke the jutsu and set him free and as a result kabuto was loyal to orochimaru. so jiraiya could just have done the same and had the surbordinate spy for him. finally the most important words in the manga that proves jiraiya's loyalty to the leaf village can be found in chapter 159 and i quote "the past hokages protected those who lived in the leaf village they reigned in troubled times yet still allowed the village to have prosperity, that ideal they bet their lives on that dream..you too should understand their feelings. if you ever do anything that betrays the leaf i'll kill you." jiraiya said this to tsunade after he found out that orochimaru had come in contact with her. he told her not to help orochimaru and if she decided to help him, he would kill her becuz she would be betraying konoha.
Jiraiya needs to stop being lazy and get into some action.

Being a spy of Jiraiya it's not a bad reason, but there are hundreds of ninjas whose spy could be Tobi...
