This scandal erupted last night and it is huge…
Talent Becky(31) and Kawatani Enon(27) were reported to be in an affair by Bunshun on 6th Jan 2016.
Kawatani Enon is the vocalist of band Gesu no Kiwami Otome, who were invited to perform in Kouhaku for the first time last year. He just got married last summer.
Becky has always maintained a clean image and therefore a favorite amongst advertising companies.
The 2 met in October last year. As Kawatani kept his marriage a secret,Becky did not know until he confessed to her at the end of November.
Bunshun obtained LINE records of their conversation, where Kawatani expressed intentions of divorce to marry Becky.
They spent Christmas Eve together and during the New Year, Becky accompanied Kawatani back to his hometown Nagasaki and met his parents.
That is where they were photographed, and when asked about their relationship, Becky denied and directed Bunshun to her agency. Kawatani was also asked about his marriage,to which he denied. When Bunshun highlighted the name of his wife, he said she is just a friend.
Becky appears in emergency press conference and apologizes
In the press con, she explained that as a fan of Kawatani’s music, she attended his live shows, eventually got his contacts, and they went out for meals. She also admitted to visiting Kawatani’s hometown over the New Year. However, they are not dating and merely friends.
Later, in a written note to the press, Kawatani confessed to being married last summer, and maintains the common stance of being “friends” with Becky.
