Former Morning Musume member Takahashi Ai is in a relationship with Abe Koji?

It has been reported that former Morning Musume member Takahashi Ai (25) and comedian Abe Koji (37), the winner of 2010’s ‘R-1 Grand Prix’ (Japanese solo comedian battle), are in a relationship.

According to a weekly tabloid magazine ‘FRYDAY‘ (issued on June 15th), the two are living together in Tokyo. Along with the article, the magazine posted pictures showing Abe dropping off Takahashi, who is currently playing a role in NHK Taiga dramaTaira no Kiyomori‘, at the TV station and picking her up after work with his car. The couple were also seen at the restaurant having a dinner together.

Reportedly, they started dating after they co-starred in the stage play, ‘Hamlet’, back in May 2011. It is said that after Takahashi graduated from Morning Musume in September last year, they formally started dating.

Both agencies denied the report and stated, “We heard they are good friends. There is no fact that they are living together.

Abe divorced his now ex-wife in 2007, and there is a daughter between them.

He looks acceptably cute and is clearly funny if he won grand prix w/e so I guess I give this relationship my blessing even if no one is truly worthy of Ai.

My first reaction to the title was "WHAAA?"
But good for her! I always thought a comedian would be best for her.

I think it's cute that they supposedly formally began dating after she graduated. someone had a commitment to not screwing her career over.

Definitely agree with that. This pretty much shows how much she cherish her career as a Morning Musume member and her fans! :)

I still think they're just friends. It is Friday after all.. and who the hell cares if she dates now, her dating ban is essentially lifted since she graduated. Poor Aichan, she's too hard working to deserve this crap.
