Actress Ryoko Hirosue is in a tight spot.
Her “double affair” with famous chef Shusaku Toba was reported in the June 8 issue of “Shukan Bunshun” (weekly magazine), and it is affecting her business. Kirin Beer’s “Honkirin” commercial video was quickly removed from the company’s official website. According to the Kirin Holdings public relations department
We are not aware of the veracity of the news reports, but we cannot convey the value of the Honkirin product.
The media was also lined with harsh comments from Kirin Holdings’ public relations department.
The movie in which Hirosue was scheduled to star, a film about the charms of her hometown of Kochi, was also postponed from the crank-in in the prefecture, which was scheduled for mid this month. According to a source close to the film
“Ms. Hirosue herself was the most excited about filming in her hometown.
“She herself was the most excited about filming in her hometown. In addition, TV TOKYO’s music special program “TV TOKYO Music Festival,” for which she has served as MC since 2007, is also said to be discussing the possibility of her not appearing this year.
According to Bunshun, Hirosue has been meeting with Toba frequently since late March, and this month they entered a luxury hotel in Tokyo at different times. There are no definitive photos, and both parties deny the allegations.
We leave private matters to the individual, but in light of the recent news reports, we have issued a strict warning to the individual to act responsibly,” her agency commented.
The agency commented, “We do not defend Hirosue, but on the contrary, we are taking the opposite approach. The fact that he did not defend Hirosue, but rather gave him a stern warning, is an unusual response.
The “Sports Nippon” of January 12 reported in detail on the “voice” of her husband, Candle Jun. She made a speech at “CANDLE 11TH,” an event held at Ryusenji Temple in Nihonmatsu City, Fukushima Prefecture to support the recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
My own family is going through a difficult time right now. I will make a clean slate after this event, so please look forward to it.
He said, “My own family is going through a hard time right now, so I will make things right.
His confession also extended to his family relations. Currently, Hirosue has a 19-year-old son with her ex-husband, Takahiro Okazawa, a 12-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter born after her second marriage. At the event, Jun said
He has become a good-looking eldest son who cares for the people of Fukushima even though he has to take care of small children now,” Jun said at the event.
He’s a good-looking eldest son who cares about the people of Fukushima,” she said. He” refers to his 19-year-old son.
The statement is as if to say, “It is not Ms. Hirosue who is running the household, but ‘he’. If this is true, the image of Ms. Hirosue as an actress who manages both child-rearing and acting will be completely overturned.
This is not the first time that Hirosue has been suspected of infidelity. In 2002, she was reported to have had a secret meeting with Takeru Sato, an actor nine years younger than her. At that time, her first daughter had not been born, but her second son was about 3 years old. At that time, however, Mr. Jun did not reveal his feelings.
It is possible that he had lost patience with the second betrayal, but some people who know Mr. Jun testified that he is not the kind of person who would become so aggressive just because of an affair. The report of the affair with Mr. Toba is only a ‘touch point,’ and I feel that there are complicated circumstances involved, including stories that have not yet come to light.
On the morning of the 14th, Hirosue fully acknowledged the affair report on her SNS.
I, Ryoko Hirosue, deeply and sincerely apologize for the trouble and worry I have caused to so many people due to my thoughtless behavior. As reported in some of the weekly magazines, my relationship with Mr. Toba is as described in the article.”
He released a handwritten document and apologized for so doing. Chef Toba also updated his SNS,
“What has been reported in the media is generally true.
Chef Toba fully acknowledged the reports of the affair and apologized.
The announcement of “full surrender” at the same time must have been the result of careful discussions among the parties concerned. A number of “omens” tell the story.
It is very rare for a former national idol and actress to “fully surrender” to scandalous reports about herself. How will Hirosue, now that she has “settled the score,” move forward in the future?
