Ayumi Hamasaki is dating her back up dancer Maro

Ayumi Hamasaki (34) and her back up dancer and co-star in several pvs Maro (28) have come out to the public stating their relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend. This shocking news first came to light when Maro made a post on his amebo blog stating their intention to go public with their relationship,

This is a little sudden, but there is something I’d like to announce to everyone.
There’s an article about Hamasaki Ayumi-san and myself coming out in a weekly magazine that will be published tomorrow.
This has caused some worry amongst those connected with Hamasaki-san, as well as lots of fans.
I apologize for that.
Since this is something which involves me, I will solemnly acknowledge it.
As the person I am, I will take this relationship seriously from now on.
Thank you for reading this.
Uchiyama Maroka

Ayu in the meantime has confirmed with this on her fanclub exclusive blog Team Ayu. Maro who joined Ayu's back up dancer team in 2007 has recently been more heavily featured in Ayu's concert and pvs most notably her pv for You&Me.


lmao Ayu,  learn from Britney and avoid back up dancer relationships!

I'm really shocked! Mainly because I thought all her male back-up dancers were gay..

My thoughts exactly ♥

I Hope the Ayu-chan is happy. Its not like they are getting married are anything and if they are it not for me to analyze the situation, because hello it doesn't involve me! But I think Ayu is cute and adorable and I wish her the best!!
norringtons 14th-Nov-2012 07:37 pm (UTC)
It seems she's never had luck with love, so I hope this works out.

Although I still have always wanted her to end up with her other back up dancer Shuya..... ;D

These photos were taken on Wednesday. The day before is not left the hotel because she was very tired. This is the reason why she looks old!

Learn from your fellow female performers who dated their backups...
I hope it doesn't end in a hot mess.

I was in Paris last week. I saw them all week and they are not pretending! They are really cute together and Maro is very gallant with Ayu.
I'm very happy for Ayu and Maro.
