On the night of 20th April, EXILE’s vocalist Takahiro(29) and ex AKB48 member Itano Tomomi(22) were seen in a Yakikinu shop frequented by many celebrities. The 2 were reported to be living in the same building in the Jan issue of “Friday”. Entering a private room in the shop, the 2 enjoyed a yakiniku date.
On the same night, a party was taking place elsewhere in a Chinese restaurant which even the imperial family visits. EXILE’s brother group “Sandaime J Soul Brothers” had just completed their national tour and was holding a celebratory party. Guests included CEO Hiro(43), Makidai(38), Akira(32) and members of E-girls, as well as Avex Group CEO.
The party continued till 2am, but Takahiro was nowhere to be seen.
“Hiro san and even the Avex CEO was there. If there is no important work schedules, the party should be of priority. However, Takahirowasn’t working and didn’t even bother to show his face. This suggests that he had other important stuff to do,” music industry personnel.
As mentioned earlier, as this party was going on, Takahiro was on a date with Itano. Itano’s agency said that both are friends, but after the meal, the 2 were seen taking a taxi together, heading back to the mansion that both live in.
