Actress Nagasawa Masami and EXILE’s AKIRA have reportedly been in a relationship since April this year, but media outlet Sanspo is divulging that the couple may have broken up already.
The relationship between Nagasawa and AKIRA had never been officially confirmed in the first place, but a person close to the former couple broke the news to Sanspo on September 3rd, telling them that they ended the relationship sometime at the end of June. Reportedly, it was AKIRA who wanted to break it off.
They both have been good friends since their childhood, and eventually became lovers this year. Unfortunately, it seems that their busy schedules made it difficult to see each other, especially since AKIRA started to appear in NHK’s taiga drama “Gou“. After just half a year, he brought up the topic of ending the relationship, and they agreed to go back to a senior-junior bond. They haven’t seen each other since the breakup, but it’s said that they’re still keeping in contact via phone.
AKIRA just ended his stage play, “Red Cliff ~Ai~“, and will soon perform with EXILE at a Chinese music festival on the 25th.
Nagasawa also just finished her own stage play, “Crazy Honey“, for which she dyed her hair red for first time in her life. Her new movie “Moteki” will open in theatres on the 23rd.
