Maya Kobayashi announced her divorce. Her ex-husband Kunimitsu launched a blog attack…

Toshio Ishikawa, entertainment reporter, tells us what’s going on behind the scenes in the entertainment industry: ……

On March 10, Akira, a.k.a. Gin Kunimitsu, a chiropractor who married the celebrity Maya Kobayashi with “zero dates,” announced their divorce, but the reason for the divorce is not clear at all.

According to his blog, Kunimitsu-san wrote

Even though the slanderous remarks about me would get worse if I stayed with him, he continued to stay with me, and when I asked him for a divorce, he said he would not do it.

He wrote.

In July ’18, they were suddenly married. I had heard that Mao’s late sister Mao’s two children, Reicho (artistic name Botan) and bins, were also attached to Maya, and that Mao’s husband, Ebizo Ichikawa, was also happy to see her. However, I can understand how Mr. Ebizo may have felt as he became more spiritually involved and distanced himself from Maya through his marriage to Kunimitsu.

It seems that he decided it was not good for their children’s education.

A Kabuki insider said. Indeed, Maya has changed dramatically since her marriage to Kunimitsu.

When I was an announcer at TBS, I was introduced to Maya by a staff member of a wide-ranging TV show, and I had the impression that she was a nice, cheerful, and frank woman who was not intimidated by others. But now she is gone…

In 2008, she was asked to leave a regular program she was appearing in.

Kunimitsu-san started interfering with her wardrobe and the progress of the show, and we couldn’t use her very much anymore. I felt that it was all Kunimitsu-san’s idea.

He speaks of this.

Maya belonged to the office of Hiroshi Ikushima, a very senior announcer, and was carefully allowed to work in the entertainment business. Her contract was also terminated from Ikushima’s planning office.

After that, the couple launched a YouTube channel, but it never got off the ground.

The money that we had has now run out. I was able to get by because I had money from a contract with an athlete, but I’m ashamed to say that Maya has been supporting me since I ran out of money.

He writes. And then there is Ebizo.

I couldn’t accept that such a kind man, Ebizo, wouldn’t help me.


I’ve met Mr. Ebizo, Reichu and Kangen, but it’s been pretended that it never happened.

And resentful. Ebizo is probably referring to the fact that Kunimitsu has become distant from him. And the brunt of it goes to Mr. Ikushima, who had supported him in his life as a TV personality.

She said, “Why did Maya marry a man who has nothing and no money in front of Maya and the talent she belongs to! I was told. I wanted to punch him! But I won’t do that! It’s obvious that Maya would be in trouble for doing that! I’m not that stupid.

and the hatred of Kunimitsu-san, who was blamed for the marriage itself.

Insulting her for doing what she is doing to protect Maya is the same as insulting her.

He also wrote, so I guess this manuscript is also insulting… In response to the Weekly

I was written as a fraud, space yoga, brainwashing, and I don’t want to undergo treatment that is written like that. It is an obstruction of business.

Kunimitsu is outraged. It seems that the two are continuing their life of “conjugal meditation” even though they are divorced.

Many people who knew Maya from her days at TBS say they hope to see her wake up soon and see her on TV with her bright smile on her face. If she wants to do so, but that would require not only a divorce but also a breakup with Kunimitsu. Well, I guess it is impossible under the current circumstances. Too bad…
