Yoko Minamino announced her divorce due to her husband’s arrest. ……

Toshio Ishikawa, entertainment reporter, has been working in the entertainment industry for the past several years, and his first impression was that Yoko Minamino had endured the incident very well.

My first impression was that she had endured the divorce well.

On November 21, her husband, Mitsushi Kaneda, who is four years younger than her, was arrested by the Shizuoka Prefectural Police on charges of embezzling 15 million yen from a social welfare corporation.

At that time, Ms. Minamino said

I am shocked. I can’t understand why …… I feel sad, angry, shameful …… various emotions. I have no idea what kind of things were done, but I hope my husband will face them properly.”

She commented. In the past, she has sometimes been in the media for her husband’s adultery problems and financial troubles, but she has never made a statement to the media. However, I had sensed that her behavior had been changing recently.

Her appearances on TV variety shows had become very frequent.

Her husband had been arrested and her office announced that they were not divorced, but I knew it was only a matter of time.

I always thought she was the type to be patient and devoted to her man.

This is because Ms. Minamino once had a man she was thinking of marrying. It was 28 years ago, when Ms. Minamino was 28 years old.

The man was ready to retire from show business, but his woman problems came up.

Ms. Minamino went to Mr. Ishii’s home, where she could not reach him. She was given a key to his house, and there she met up with a woman. Mr. Ishii was also at home.

Ms. Minamino still wanted to continue the relationship, but this led to the breakup of the relationship.

Once a man she had considered marrying. It must have been the day when Ms. Minamino’s life changed drastically.

I talked to him about what he didn’t like about me. He told me that I was poor and that I ate things well.

I would go out to eat and if I had leftovers, I would ask him to wrap it up and take it home. He said that was embarrassing.

I was ashamed of that,” Ms. Minamino said on a TV program, revealing her feelings. The difference in values must have been significant.

Ten months after his breakup with Ms. Minamino, Mr. Ishii married a former CA who was 10 years younger than him. It was the same woman who had run into Ms. Minamino.

It was around that time that I directly confronted Ms. Minamino. She casually removed a speck of dust from my shoulder and said to me.

She said, “You’ll stand out.

I could not forget the look on her face. It may be simple, but it was the moment I thought she was a kind person.

I will never get back together with him. I may never marry another person.

However, six months later, on March 3, 2010, Ms. Minamino married the president of an IT company she met at a yakiniku restaurant in October 2010. At a press conference, Ms. Minamino showed off her 4.5-carat diamond ring by Harry Winston.

In the 12 and a half years since then, the couple has weathered the allegations leveled against her husband together. Many people around her have recommended divorce due to her husband’s financial problems, but no matter what, she has been able to defy the voices of those around her with her strong determination to “get through it together.

Her way of life is amazing, as she said she was looking for a fresh start in her romantic relationship with Mr. Ishii, saying, “Once I decided to get married, I got married.

She said, “On a personal note, we are divorced. I would like to move on with my life without turning away from what we both have to face now,” she commented through her office.

She commented through her office. Ms. Minamino, who has been “devoted” to her man, will now begin a life of her own.
