This is an update on Nakajima Tomoko of Othello. Fuji tracked down one of her co-workers (Nakao Akira) to interview him about her current situation.
He said that there’s been strange things about her since about 3 years ago. She started talking badly about Matsushima, locking herself in the greenroom 10secs before a live broadcast. She also stopped sharing a greenroom with Matsushima, and went as far as not staying in the same hotel together when they go on locations. She also stopped going to dinners with the cast and crew together when they go on overseas locations. She also started eating and drinking non-stop. She also wore the same clothes everyday to work, which was not like her before.
Nakajima would also say stuff like, “I can’t stand looking at Matsushima’s face.” When her parents went to her apartment, they were not able to meet their daughter, and her manager also had no luck trying to keep in contact with her.
He has even met the mysterious psychic at dinner once. Nakajima introduced her as a friend who is currently writing a book.
Fuji then went to the psychic’s hometown to find out more. She was a freelanced magazine writer before going to Tokyo and she was the type who made people laugh. They even tracked down the psychic’s relatives who made regular trips to Nakajima’s apartment building.
It seems all the costars were aware of her problems before her hiatus but no one said anything.
Cyzo also came out with an article today about how all the press attention might be detrimental to Nakajima in the end. The psychic might have so much influence over her that she would commit suicide under the psychic’s orders.
I wasn't quite sure what to put as the tags, so feel free to change them, mods.
I really love Nakajima, she was such a great personality. I'm really hoping she is able to make a comeback.. I hate all this talk of her being under the control of some psychic. It freaks me out.
