On April 4th, comedian Tamura Atsushi (38) of London Boots Ichi-go Ni-go announced his breakup with model Yano Mikiko (25) on the live broadcast of his regular TV program, ‘Shiritagari!’.
Tamura’s relationship with Yano was first reported last August, and around New Year’s, the two were seen vacationing in Hawaii.
After getting out of the 7-month relationship, Tamura seemed to be disheartened as he said, “We were seriously dating, but sadly…” He then explained that it was a peaceful breakup saying, “This is the result after properly talking it over.”
Tamura also revealed that the reason for their breakup was due to their differences and busy schedules. “I love to work, so I must not be very good at making time,” he guessed.
Commentator Koyabu Kazutoyo tried to cheer up Tamura as he joked, “Hurry up and get married!” Tamura responded, “I really want to get married!”
He continued, “My desire for marriage is getting bigger. In the past, I didn’t have any desire for marriage, but recently… the people around me. Like Shouji (Tomoharu) and my juniors, who I’m close to, are having children. When I see things like that, I think about how nice having a family would be.”
