The nursery school, located in the center of Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture, is known for its high awareness of the SDGs and its commitment to quality childcare.
Local star and “SPEED” member, Takako Uehara (40), has her eldest son and daughter enrolled at the preschool, and the sight of her picking up and dropping off her children in her Volkswagen has become a bit of a local topic of conversation. Occasionally, a handsome man resembling Toru Kazama comes to pick up Uehara’s children.
For example, on a sunny autumn evening, a black Rancl came near the preschool.
As soon as Uehara received her child from the childcare worker, she ran to him with a smile on her face, but the handsome man behind the wheel was neither her husband nor the children’s “father.
An acquaintance of Uehara’s turned her head and said, “The handsome man was not her husband.
The handsome man was not her husband, but a younger businessman named Mr. T. He was her lover. He was her lover. According to the profile he disclosed when he spoke at a seminar, Mr. T is from Kanagawa, and after recording huge sales as a salesman for a real estate company specializing in investment, he became independent. He is a hard-working businessman who started his own real estate company in Okinawa.
What in the world is going on?
As mentioned above, Uehara took the world by storm with “SPEED,” which she formed with three members from her hometown. After the group disbanded in 2000, she worked as an actress.
She was in love with ISSA (44) of “DA PUMP” and Hitoshi Akanishi (39), but in ’12 she married Tenn of the hip-hop group “ET-KING. She thought this would settle her down, but lo and behold, her husband committed suicide in ’14. About three years after the tragedy, “Josei Seven” published Tenn’s suicide note, which revealed that the cause of the suicide was Uehara’s infidelity, causing a huge firestorm” (producer, key station).
Uehara was almost banned from the entertainment world. Her husband, Mr. A, who was working as a stage director at the time, saved her.
She left without telling him where she was going.
Mr. A cast Uehara in a play he was directing and took it upon himself to protect her from the public’s intense bashing.
The couple married in 2006, and although Mr. A lost his job as a stage director and had to retire from show business, they were blessed with a son and daughter, and Uehara was supposed to have a happy family this time around.
A senior executive of an entertainment company said, “The tragedy began when she moved to Okinawa with her family in January of this year.
Uehara started a company to manage an esthetic salon and became its president. In June, Mr. A found out about the incident, and although Uehara admitted to being unfaithful, she was accused of violence by her husband, which led to a police action.
Uehara was not injured and no damage report was filed. However, her second affair became known to the media in early July, and when “Bunshun Online” and other newspapers reported it, even her husband Mr. A burst into flames, saying, “You saw that? It seemed as if Uehara would not make the same mistake and turn her back on her family this time, but she took an unexpected action.
She took her two children and left home, not telling Mrs. A where they were going, and started living in an apartment in the prefecture. Backing up her new life is her adulterous partner, Mr. T. I heard that she traveled with him to Fukuoka in August, but I believe that her husband, Mr. A, has not been able to see his child properly since that August.
FRIDAY flew to Fukuoka and witnessed the scene described above.
I see (Mr. T’s) Rancl often. I think he comes here every week.
said a resident of the condominium where Uehara lives with her three children. When FRIDAY met Uehara in Okinawa in late October, she was driving a shiny Audi owned by Mr. T’s company.
After divorcing Mr. A, is this a new life that both parties agree on? Is a new life with an adulterous partner appropriate from the viewpoint of the welfare of the child? We directly interviewed Uehara in Naha City, but he did not answer any of our questions.
When we called Mr. A on the phone, he answered in a guttural voice, “I am separated from my wife.
It is true that I am separated from my wife and that she refuses to allow me visitation with my children. However, I never acted violently out of anger, as was reported in the media. As for the future, I would like to refrain from commenting as I am in discussions with my lawyer. ……”
While destroying the family through his own infidelity, he takes the child away for his own convenience and deprives the father and child of the opportunity to see each other. This is the same situation as table tennis player Ai Fukuhara (34), who received a temporary restraining order from the family court ordering her to hand over her child.
Is this the future that Uehara wants?
