Here’s something for Cherry who commented about missing Takamina…
Ex AKB48 member Takahashi Minami(25) has been papped on date with an older man. Takahashi graduated from 48Group on the 8th April 2016 after 10 years with the group.
1 month later, on a weekend night after 10pm, Takamina was spotted walking with a man in the city. The guy is somewhere around 170cm and looks like actor Ikematsu Sousuke. Sporting a moustache, he gives off a wild feeling. When Takamina first saw him arriving, she looked relieved and smiled. They leaned into each other and headed into an Izakaya.
(Following paragraph describes some intimate interactions and how another guy was sitting at the same table but they didn’t seem to mind.)
After midnight, they took a taxi and headed home to Takamina’s mansion. The 2 stayed together for 3 days 3 nights.
This guy works in the IT industry, and is older than Takamina by 15 years(40 years old). They met 10 years ago just after Takamina’s debut.
At that time, Takamina was a middle schooler and he was 30. Of cos, they were not in a relationship then. They met again end of last year due to work. “Probably they grew conscious of each other immediately” -acquaintance of both
When the 2 disappeared into Takamina’s mansion, it was the next night before they were seen outside again. Wearing matching sunglasses and arms wrapped around each other, they headed to a washoku restaurant which had just opened in town. Waiting for them was the guy’s friends. This dinner date was supposedly the setting for their “relationship announcement”.
Agency does not deny: “We leave private matters to her”
On her radio show tonight, she apologised for the tabloid reports.
“This is Takahashi Minami. Regarding the weekly magazine which goes on sale today, sorry for causing the buzz. I will work hard today!”
Her agency also did not deny the reports.
