ELLY (36) of JSB3, who gave a good performance in the October 2023 drama “Paripi Komei” (Fuji TV). It was in July 2023 that he discovered a shopping date with influencer Minami Riho (28), with whom he was dating. They showed up at a luxury supermarket in a Rolls-Royce that cost nearly 50 million yen. The following is a recap of details based on an article distributed on July 17, 2023 (ages and titles in the article are current at the time of publication).

The shopping district was packed with elite foreign-capital salarymen, inbound tourists, and celebrities who had come to take advantage of a mid-season break during the rainy season.

Located in one of Tokyo’s most exclusive residential areas, the shopping district is also famous for its gastronomic offerings, including popular French cuisine, okonomiyaki for celebrities, and members-only horse meat restaurants. On holidays, the area is crowded from morning till night.


The only cars that pass by are Maseratis, Aston Martins, and other top-class luxury cars. Among them, a Rolls-Royce 2-door coupe stood out the most.

“It was characterized by its reverse opening doors, which were designed to allow women in long dresses to get in and out elegantly. It has a powerful engine displacement of over 6,000 cc and, depending on how it is customized, the price for a new car is no less than 46 million yen.” (a reporter from a car magazine).

The Rolls-Royce comes to a stop in front of a café full of people. The passenger door opened and a petite woman in a white T and overalls got out.

The ladies who were relaxing on the open terrace of the cafe looked at each other and laughed, as if they thought there was a British lady in the Rolls-Royce. But when they saw the macho man who got off next, they couldn’t help but lean forward.

“I’m pretty sure that’s him!”

The man who got out of the Rolls-Royce was ELLY (35) of “J SOUL BROTHERS 3rd Generation” and influencer Riho Minami (27), whom this magazine had scooped about “living together in a townhouse ” in July last year.

Minami used ELLY’s office’s courtesy car to go out for meals and to the ATM at the bank, so to speak, and was an official friend of the office.

“They were photographed by Friday right after ELLY announced the dissolution of her de facto marriage to MEGBABY, a businessman and beautician. Furthermore, we later found evidence that Minami had been “hinting” on SNS and other media that she was dating ELLY before she was photographed by Friday, leading some to ask, “Is this plagiarism?” “Are they dating for the same period of time?” ELLY explained his relationship with Minami again on his SNS.”


A year has passed since then, but their love is still alive and well.

After entering a shopping district, ELLY and Minami enjoyed shopping among the madams at a supermarket frequented by celebrities.

“They never left each other for a moment, holding hands, holding each other’s arms, and keeping close to each other. ELLY was wearing a cap and a mask, but his stout physique and blond hair gave him away,” said a customer who was there.


After about 30 minutes of shopping, they got into a Rolls-Royce again. The destination was not the townhouse where they had made love, but a low-rise condominium in a quiet residential area.

“I don’t know whose house it is, but it looks like they moved in around last fall, and I saw ELLY’s Rolls-Royce parked in the parking lot a few times. I think they live together.” (Neighborhood resident)

Their love for each other seems to have been further fueled by the flames.

Appealed that their relationship is going well on Instagram.

Minami updated her Instagram Stories on December 18, 2023. In response to a question from a fan, “My boyfriend won’t help me with housework!” 

She advised that their relationship was going well.

ELLY, on the other hand, has received great reviews for her role as the rapper Red Rabbit Kung Fu in Paripi Komei”. The sixth dome tour “JSOUL BROTHERSPRESENT”, which started on November 23, 2023, was also completed with great success.

ELLY had a fulfilling 2023, and her momentum is not likely to stop in 2024.
