On June 7, “Shukan Bunshun” reported the affair between actress Ryoko Hirosue and chef Shusaku Toba (45), and since then, confusion has continued. Hirosue personally contacted a reporter of the “Shukan Bunshun” to criticize the office, and Mr. Toba said to Candle, in a direct response to the sports newspaper reporter, that he “should be eliminated” and so on. Meanwhile, her husband, Candle Jun, held a press conference alone to settle the situation, but his own adultery and violence against a former employee were reported by Josei Jishin (Women’s Journal).
A series of disturbances have taken on the appearance of an off-the-cuff brawl between the three parties. While the adults are in turmoil, it is the three children who are of concern. In 2010, at the “Best Mother Award” ceremony, Hirosue said that her children were the support of her work. Although she and Mr. Candle had been talking about divorce for some time, a friend of Hirosue’s revealed that her relationship with her children was good.
He was quite present at school events. Especially at sports events, he would get passionate and say, ‘Go! Win! and cheered them on. Both Hirosue and her son hated to lose. Whenever Mr. Hirosue sighed, his son would scold him, saying, “Your happiness is running away from you. She said, “I try to say happy words to my children when I interact with them.
Before the news report, she had already asked her three children, “Mom and Dad are getting divorced, but which one do you want to live with?” Before the news report, Hirosue had already asked her three children, “Dad and Mom are getting divorced, but which one do you want to live with? The first son (19) and the second son (12) chose Hirosue, saying, “I have to protect my mom, so I’ll stay with her.
Although the eldest son is now an adult and does not live with her, they are close enough to send a letter and a bouquet of flowers to Hirosue on Mother’s Day this year as well. Every year the eldest son takes charge and the children celebrate Mother’s Day together.
Just before the affair came to light, Hirosue wrote about a letter she received from her eldest son: “Thank you for being my mother for 19 years. I was so moved that I cried when I read it. Whenever she is going through a difficult time, she reads the letter to inspire herself. She is not lying when she said at the Best Mother Award ceremony that her children support her in her work. (Hirose’s acquaintance)
Currently, Hirosue is on indefinite hiatus. What will become of the “Best Mother” who has to devote herself to her family, whether she wants to or not?
