Hey!Say!JUMP Nakajima Yuto spotted on a date with actress Yoshida Yo

11 Apr

I wanted to post something about Keyakizaka but this overshadows everything else…

According to Shukan Post, Actress Yoshida Yo(42) has been papp-ed with an idol 20 years her junior, and the guy in question is none other than Hey!Say!JUMP’s Nakajima Yuto(22).

At the end of March, Nakajima was spotted coming out from Yoshida’s mansion with a cap and mask over his face. 15 seconds later, Yoshida followed from behind with a similar disguise. Once they reached the main road, Nakajima hailed for a taxi and Yoshida suddenly dashed forward and boarded the taxi with him. Their destination was a popular restaurant nearby. Both sat next to each other in their disguse and enjoyed beer and the popular coriander salad. It was 1 hr later before they left.

Nakajima was heard saying “Yo san, gochisousama” (This means Yoshida treated him.)

Yoshida acknowleged it with a smile on her face, then wrapped herself around his arms. They returned to her mansion in this manner. It was 9 am the next morning when Yoshida left for work, and afternoon when Nakajima left.

They spent 7 days together like this.

While both have acted in various projects, they have never worked on the same drama together. They were introduced to each other via the owner of a bar they frequent and got close recently. Photos of them holding hands after their date is also going to be published.

Yoshida’s agency did not reply to reports about her relationship.

Johnny’s Entertainment said “It seems like he was seeking advice from a senior in the industry. They are not dating.”

However, Shukan Post reported that Nakajima holds the key to her house and has been entering and leaving her house freely.


Update: Photo of them holding hands


Feels weird but Yoshida Yo is such a charismatic actress!


Full article of Becky and Kawatani Enon in Bunshun plus aftermath

ベッキー出演CMの打ち切り決定 “不倫騒動”の代償は大きく…

Background info

Full article was published in Bunshun yesterday and it came with photos of Becky and Kawatani spending Christmas Eve in a hotel room, as well as snapshots of their LINE conversation.

Apparently, Kawatani stayed at Hotel New Otani Makuhari as Gesu no Kiwami Otome was scheduled to perform at Music Station Super Live at Makuhari Messe on Christmas Day last year. Becky showed up on Christmas Eve and they went for a date at nearby DisneySea. They returned to the hotel at night and Becky stayed until the next morning. After the gig in Music Station, Kawatani sent a message to Becky reminiscing their day before and Becky replied “Yup, i wanna tell the Hills Tribe* that true happiness does not require money.”

LINE conversation about Christmas(Right Photo)
Becky: Kenchan, thanks for the great eve and Christmas. Taking me to Sea, treating me, giving me such a nice present, i’m really really thankful. It was really blissful. Just being together is happiness.

*Refers to the rich living in Roppongi Hills.

As they were getting closer, Kawatani’s relationship with his wife was breaking down. He had confessed to his wife about the presence of an important person in his life. A followup conversation between Becky and Kawatani went like this.

Kawatani: I told her i have someone i wanted to treasure 
Becky: Yes..
Kawatani: She said “that means it’s an out?”
Becky: Oh…
Kawatani: But i don’t know if this is a positive or negative. For now, it’s until here.
Becky: It’s positive! It’ll be alright.

LINE conversation about Kawatani’s divorce(Left Photo)
Kenchan: We talked. It might be better to wait it out without talking. It’ll just get emotional otherwise. It might take time but i’ll finish the graduation thesis**, wait for me. It’s really tough on you, but i hope you’ll wait.

Becky: Kenchan good morning. It’s fine! I’ll wait. So pls wait for me too. It’s fine! I’ll make you listen to my complaints after you submit the graduation thesis! (Laugh)

**Refers to divorce papers.

Another snippet tells about Kawatani showing up as a surprise while Becky was in Osaka working on 19th December. She was very touched and wrote “Kenchan, thanks for coming to Osaka. How much will does that take? I’m already very touched when i see people holding hands in the streets. I was really happy, thank you.”

Status of Becky’s CM Contracts

Becky currently has contracts with 10 CM companies and 1 of them has decided to pull their ads.
Convenience chain “Lawson” has pulled their ad featuring Becky.
Insurance company “Himawari Life” is considering changing out Becky as their image character.


Becky and Kawatani have reportedly broken up

They decided to stop seeing each other on 5th Jan, after being caught by paparazzi in Nagasaki. This was also before news articles of them were published.


Kawatani Enon living apart from his wife

Gesu no Kiwami Otome’s vocalist Kawatani Enon is living in a hotel after reports of his affair with Becky broke. His wife reportedly did not agree to a divorce.

A related personnel says “He does not know what to say infront of the mass media.He is also avoiding going out except for work, in a bid to reduce inconvenience to Becky’s side.”


Bunshun speaks to Kawatani Enon’s wife

They dated from 2012 and married in July 2015, but their marriage was hidden from the world, with Kawatani even describing her as a “friend” when Bunshun first caught him with Becky in Nagasaki. He later acknowledged her status as his spouse through a fax to the media.

“It was most shocking to learn that he went back to his hometown with her over the New Year without telling me. What kind of feelings did he have introducing Becky to his family? What intentions did Becky have meeting his parents? Honestly, i can’t think and don’t want to,” she said.

Apparently, after Becky held a emergency press conference to apologise, the wife received mails and calls from Kawatani, urging her to submit the divorce papers.

A music industry insider says “Even though the 2 decided to not meetup again, it’s not the case. Both their agencies agreed that they should not meet until the divorce papers are submitted. Beneath the surface, the 2 are still communicating, saying it’s fine not to meet until the divorce papers are served.”

Currently, the wife has difficulty ingesting food and is just lying down.


Becky was discouraged by actress friends from continuing the affair

Becky confessed to actress friends about falling for Kawatani Enon towards end of November 2015. She also told them that he’s married but would seek divorce immediately. Her friends tried to stop her and advised her to end the relationship.

Amongst the actress friends are a female lead from NHK’s morning drama, and others with roots in comedy and modelling.

A related insider says “She was troubled since she didn’t have many relationships. She was struggling between the words of Kawatani and her friends.” Becky took the advice of her friends at first but her relationship with Kawatani got closer with the visit to his hometown Nagasaki.


Becky continued to appear in her regular variety “Nijiiro Jean” after the scandal, however protests from sponsers of the show forced production team to drop her. Seeing that other shows will do the same, her agency decided to let her go into “hiatus”.
It seems like Becky is insistent on being with Enon “all the way to the end”, even expressing intentions of quitting the industry despite persuasion from staff to end the relationship.

Becky writes handwritten letter of apology to co-workers
It is said that she’d written 100 letters in 1 month to co-workers, apologising for the trouble caused by her scandal. However, she maintains in her letters that she and Enon are only friends.
Previous source claims that in another LINE expose, Becky and Enon had decided to tell the outside world they are merely “friends”.

Enon lashes out at fans during live in 2nd March live

“I’m telling you i’m keeping silent not because i like it! On the Internet people are telling me to apologise but to whom should i apologise to? Honestly this is a private matter so it’s nothing to do with all!”

His comment is troubling Becky’s agency, who only wants the matter to die down and was supposedly planning her comeback for July.


Enon officiates divorce on 9th May 

As announced on his blog.


Becky to return to TV on 13th May (Nakai Masahiro’s “Kin Sma”)

The condition for her return,was for her to apologise to Kawatani Enon’s wife first, and the wife has given the green light.

Becky in an affair with Gesu no Kiwami Otome’s vocalist?

7 Jan

This scandal erupted last night and it is huge…

ベッキーに初スキャンダル! 紅白初出場歌手との“禁断愛”

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.

AllThingsJpop Top 10 headlines of the year

23 Dec

Since 2015 is coming to an end, i might as well conclude with the Top 10 headlines of the year. These articles are ranked according to their viewership. Articles from 2014 and earlier have been left out.

1. Bunshun leaks pictures of AKB48 Kashiwagi Yuki and NEWS Tegoshi Yuya..a Hakone date?
This scandal was published in June 2015 and i guess the huge picture of Yukirin and Tegoshi, arms wrapped around each other, was a huge shock. No proper news sources would report it (for Yahoo it took a few days before article was posted) but the story was already all over the Internet. Though both parties remained largely silent, to this date, we’re still getting epilogues on the mysterious relationship between Yukirin and Tegoshi.

2. AKB48 2015 Senbatsu Sousenkyo ~Unpredictable Rankings, The Tumultuous Night~: Final Results

3. Back Number sings OST theme for drama “5-ji kara 9-ji made”
This comes in as a surprise because i had no idea “5-ji kara 9-ji made” would be so successful internationally. I’ve had readers asking me for titles of tracks which i had no idea of. But no worries, CDJapan now has the OST for sale!

4.  Kisumai Fujigaya Taisuke revealed to be dating Miori Takimoto for years
I seldom post about Kisumai let alone Fujigaya so the spike in numbers for this was quite surprising. I guess Kisumai is really huge, or there could be much more shippers of the couple from “Ikemen Desu Ne” that i’m aware of.

5. AKB48 General Elections 2015: Final look at China fans’ campaigns
This article ended up being published in a Japanese matome kinda site for 48 fans, and for some reason they’d misquoted the facts. So if you read the matome sites, please be aware that not all info passed around there is TRUE.

6. Horikita Maki gets married to Koji Yamamoto after 3 months of dating!
Title is enough to let everyone’s jaws drop in shock. Their love story is even juicier.

7. Tanaki Koki sends Taguchi message of support and talks about life after KAT-TUN
I would actually rank this way higher because it was just published. Surprised that people are still interested in Koki.

Thanks to everyone for supporting my site this year! There are busier days ahead and i won’t be posting regularly but i’ll be here when there’s important news! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!





Bunshun spots AKB48 Takajo Aki sleeping over at J-league soccer coach’s house

22 Dec

Yet another article thanks to Bunshun….i actually skipped one about Yukirin and her birthday message to Tegoshi. If anyone wants to know the details do let me know.


On the 15th December, Takajo Aki announced her graduation from 48Group during their annual Kouhaku event. However, according to Bunshun Shukan, she had a sleepover date at a man’s house 5 days earlier.

On 10th December at 10pm, Takajo was spotted having a meal with 2 men at Naka Meguro. Takajo was telling them “Finally my contract can be cut off.”

After 2 hours, the 3 of them headed to the back of the shop and boarded a taxi. 1 of them alighted at Shibuya Station while Takajo and the remaining guy headed to his apartment in Shibuya. The next time Takajo was spotted was next morning 11am. Barefaced, she hailed a taxi sleepily before heading home.

The guy is ‘A’, coach of J-league Urawa Red Diamonds. The next day, when asked about the sleepover, ‘A’ said “She did come to my house, but she slept alone.”

AKB management did not offer a comment by the magazine’s deadline. However, a related person says there was another couple in the apartment and that Takajo is not in a relationship with the guy.


Netizens discover signs of Shimazaki Haruka interacting with Johnny’s Junior, Sashihara dating Kisumai Senga?

3 Oct

A couple of other english sites have already translated this…

AKB48 Shimazaki Haruka x Johnny’s Junior Yasui Kentaro interactions on Instagram

Alleged Yasui Kentaro: Second shot. The height of cuteness
Paruru: I want a child
From Paruru or Yasui(?): No way..lol

Paruru: Flirt
From Paruru or Yasui(?): I have work LOL

So apparently Johnny’s wotas are angry at Paruru for “fishing” while on medical leave and ousting Yasui’s account. She has since deleted all her posts and locked up her instagram account. Yasui Kentaro on the other hand, will probably suffer some consequences for using SNS.

Arashi Ohno responds to scandal, will never meet his “friend” again

20 Sep

Ohno Satoshi officially responds to his scandal with ex-actress ‘A’, during an interview before the Arashi Blast in Miyagi Stadium.

“She’s one of my friends.We are not in a relationship. I’m reflecting over my actions which has caused fans to be sad. I’m really sorry,” he said with a weird expression.

He added a final line “We will never meet again,sorry for causing such a disturbance” before heading off for the concert.

It is said that Ohno shed tears at the end of the concert. Miyagi Stadium was where he’d watched a World Cup match in 2002(with Aiba and Sho). Feeling overwhelmed at returning to the stadium, he said “I want to treasure this space more than anything. Please follow Arashi from now on.”


I feel sad for Ohno…he could just ignore it like Okada but he gave a proper reply and went as far as to say that he’d stop meeting the girl. Are Arashi fans that scary?

Anyway for those interested, SNS leaks showing the 2 of them on a fishing trip.
