On June 3rd, actor Masaya Nakamura, who recently divorced former Morning Musume. member Mari Yaguchi, made a live appearance on NTV's live news program "PON!" and spoke about their divorce for the first time. At the beginning of the show he spoke about the reason of their divorce, but did not mention Yaguchi's affair with model Kenzou Umeda. He explained that "(the divorce) was the result we decided on together after many discussions. We have ended up walking on our own separate paths but, please continue to give us your support from now on as well". He also showed his concern for Yaguchi, who is caught in a storm of bashing, by representing the both of them with "us".
However, there are no signs of Yaguchi's illicit affairs coming to an end. Surprising news gushed out one after the other, such as "Umeda was made to kneel on the ground while naked" and "the bed sheets would be brand new particularly on the days Nakamura would return from elsewhere". Furthermore, there are rising suspicions of a new affair even at this moment. The source of this appears to be from none other than the Twitter posts of lover Umeda.
Since the end of February, right around when Umeda was "brought home" by Yaguchi, he stopped updating his Twitter, however, for some reason he returned on May 21st, right after the release of the weekly magazine. He spilled out complaints such as "Ah~ There's kinda no point of becoming famous in this kind of way huh" and "I'm really gonna die if I'm asked for a large amount of compensation money", but since the timing of his return was deemed as too perfect, there were suspicions of it being a vicious "fraud". Still, when the Tweets became a big topic, his account was changed to private and only approved Followers could read his Tweets. If it was a "fraud" that only wanted to attract attention, there would be no need to make the account private, which brings many to guess that it is Umeda himself posting these.
Within the series of Tweets, the person assumed to be Umeda suddenly Tweeted: "Well~ It's begun. Kenzou Umeda's All Night Nippon Tattaratattararatattaratattaratattaratat
According to one section of the report, Umeda was not the only illicit lover of Yaguchi's, they suspect that she had relations with 4 other men, such as "the husband's actor friend that also attended to the wedding reception" and "a married Johnny's talent". As for the husband's actor friend, the name of Shirota, who belonged to the young actors group "D-BOYS" with Nakamura, has arisen. Shirota was also present during Yaguchi and Nakamura's wedding reception, he is indeed a person that fits the list.
One may think that Umeda's Tweets were just an accusation of Shirota and Yaguchi's affair but, perhaps he felt displeasure in being the only one criticized for as an illicit lover...?
"It certainly was said that Shirota is the rumoured 'husband's actor friend' in a relationship with Yaguchi. However, the evidence is not concrete like it was with Umeda, since Shirota is a part of the major company, Watanabe Production, he will be hidden from everywhere and his name won't come out. If the Umeda Twitter is really him, suspicions will become proof but, since he is hiding, not being able to get a confirmation is very troubling" (from a weekly magazine writer).
If one did lay their hands on their friend's wife, it seems like it would become a major incident on all sides. When it comes to the "married Johnny's talent" as well, it is only a matter of time before his name pops up.
"As for the Johnny's talent, former KAT-TUN member Jin Akanishi's name came out much earlier. In Johnny's, the number of married people is very limited and, the younger Akanishi brother, Leo, is friends with Umeda and there is a strong friendship between Shirota and Akanishi as well. There has been gossip of Akanishi being intimate with Yaguchi since before. However, it is the same with Shirota, if we take both the lack of concrete evidence and the power of the companies into account, none of their names will ever be written anywhere" (from the same writer).
While it has become such a big uproar, it looks like Yaguchi's illicit affairs will continue to be exposed much more. On top of being trapped in this dilemma, if Yaguchi is found to be in another affair, it'll be the complete end of her.

So Yu Shirota is a Spanish Citizen?
19： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:45:31.96 ID:e872a9yW0
Well, there's no point in keeping the information to yourself if you're leaving showbiz after all. I'm sure he doesn't want to be the only onereceiving all the criticism so he has to bring forth another sacrifice
20： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:45:36.21 ID:8xESWPkNO
I'm waiting for a heart-pounding happening here LOL

Yu Shirota's also pretty tall LOL Yaguchi sure is predictable LOLOL

At times like these, the ones in huge agencies are definitely at an advantage. Umeda was there at the scene so there's no helping it if he's the one bashed the most
55： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:48:38.55 ID:YDpRyUJB0
He'll probably be under the Tokyo Bay in 6 month's time
58： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:49:05.06 ID:j4qbsFcv0
Is Shirota anti-Japanese? Did he say something about us?
124： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:54:29.36 ID:EPDP+vTpO
He's been badmouthing Japan ever since. He's a celebrity in Japan, despite hating on Japanese people. He has the same mentality as the naturalized Koreans. I've always hated Shirota, and I wanted him to leave so well done Umeda!
59： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:49:05.11 ID:hUBM4gV0O
Yu Shirota and Jin Bakanishi LOLOL
Scumbags just as I expected LOL
So is Tomohisa Yamashita being protected or something? Or he doesn't have any interest in Mari Yaguchi? LOLing at these 'hole brothers' (men who have slept with the same woman)
445： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:22:53.58 ID:Wd72Ri1X0
Tomohisa Yamashita isn't tall so he's never been in Yaguchi's sights. It seems that Yaguchi just likes the tall ones. She used to date Shun Oguri when she left Morning Musume. And Oguri instantly became popular after that when everyone started wondering who he was.
Umeda should come out with a tell-all book
86： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:51:07.33 ID:YDpRyUJB0
Yu Shirota is from Nabe-pro right? Umeda will definitely be terminated from the industry LOL
93： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:51:54.24 ID:icj1ZLS50
Yu Shirota 190cm
Kenzo Umeda 193cm
Masaya Nakamura 192 cm
She's so predictable LOLOL
113： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:53:32.02 ID:hT0XhXM00
She probably has this instinct of wanting to be with tall people
129： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:54:44.63 ID:3Ekwae+xP
She might be just attracted to tall people, or she just wants men who seem to have big wieners
96： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:52:01.91 ID:Deh7mBi30
Here's the Umeda bomb LOLOL
100： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:52:22.90 ID:eIYsdVSx0
The TV stations should use Umeda more. Don't succumb to the pressure from the agencies! Use Umeda and watch the ratings soar!
105： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:52:49.98 ID:5RaCTsaN0
Will we be able to make a baseball team out of these 'hole brothers'?
131： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:54:53.88 ID:TEE/HHeF0
You can easily create more than 2 soccer teams
109： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:53:04.07 ID:up7jrn92O
Yaguchi's a tall-dude maniac huh. Abe-chan fits the bill.
112： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:53:19.36 ID:CtEsBll40
That fast eater Giant Shirota is suspicious too
138： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:55:19.87 ID:7AEhcSsIO
LOLOLOL Just how much has Yaguchi devoured? LOLOL
147： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:56:27.62 ID:fjRq3IW3O
If Shirota's dad was a naturalized Korean and he was born in Japan, would he still be able to obtain a Japanese citizenship?
174： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:59:27.09 ID:EPDP+vTpO
There's this girl Kiko Mizuhara who's dad is an American but her mom is a naturalized gook and she's a Japanese Citizen so that is possible.
Seriously, get out of Japan.
557： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:31:40.46 ID:+ZvYtu2sO
Yu Shirota's dad is a Japanese, a writer who works for NTV. That's why he originally had dual citizenship as a Japanese and Spanish. He had the opportunity to choose when he turned 20, but he chose Spain over Japan despite living in Japan. That jerkhole.
151： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:56:49.11 ID:jGOnQ3SIP
I think I like Umeda a bit now
155： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:57:04.39 ID:S+BwQEsy0
Soooo petty LOL
161： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:58:08.78 ID:06Rz2aR6O
Shirota's very tall. Yaguchi loves 'em tall ones
175： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:59:34.76 ID:V2yxp6jdO
They probably heard from their circle of friends that they'd be able to do it with her if they can get her to drink. If that isn't the case then there won't be that many hole brothers who are this close to one another now, right!? Yaguchi might be an extreme hentai technician
209： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:03:26.32 ID:CZCYbxRL0
Even the comedians once had a rumor among them that "there's a Morning Musume member who will easily do it with you". It probably wouldn't have been made into an article if it was just some nobody
178： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 10:59:42.08 ID:QtfSev1k0
Jin Akanishi and Yu Shirota's party pictures
204： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:02:46.66 ID:B6isM6gu0
So is this Twitter account real?
What a scum. Why would Yaguchi have an affair with this guy?
I can't believe Yaguchi's taste...
208： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:03:14.21 ID:URcNePAI0
And so that's why they toned down the comments in the gossip shows LOL
Terry Ito and Nishikawa sensei are scums too LOL
222： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:04:15.25 ID:icj1ZLS50
Yu Shirota 190cm
Kenzo Umeda 193cm
Masaya Nakamura 192cm
Shun Oguri 184cm
546： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:30:50.01 ID:DjvZpwWP0
184 feels so small
237： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:06:05.26 ID:42bGwmNQ0
So Nabe-Pro wanted to beat up Yaguchi so badly but got nervous now that Shirota and Akanishi's names have surfaced LOL Well, this has also caused damage to their own actor who's more popular than Nakamura. And that's why Terry and Nishikawa toned down the criticism
250： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:06:56.68 ID:OpMIUNlZ0!
So that means she's devoured all the talents above 190cm huh
259： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:07:26.47 ID:icj1ZLS50
Yu Shirota = Nabe-Pro. Akanishi = Johnny's.
So that's why Nishikawa sensei and Terry Ito toned down, huh LOLOL
302： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:09:46.40 ID:mH4Q9dCO0
Umeda will be a god if he'll also puke out Akanishi's name LOLOLOL
317： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:11:01.13 ID:yd4Fcp+/0
I pity her husband. Maybe the reason they weren't able to have kids was because she drank pills.
322： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:11:42.77 ID:FYy4lmxY0
They probably wouldn't know who the father was if she got pregnant due to the number of hole brothers
388： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:18:18.67 ID:wgp7G+9q0

They split up 2 years ago

I bet she also like Darvish
551： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:31:13.95 ID:eNZD4Wvb0
Yaguchi and Saeko sure do seem similar
600： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:35:01.31 ID:bar0nzdy0
Now that things have turned out this way, I hope Yaguchi comes up with a tell-all book LOL She should also throw in a correlations chart there LOL
611： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:35:51.37 ID:y1NOZ2GW0

705： 名無しさん＠恐縮です 2013/06/04(火) 11:43:30.39 ID:qrj0nD1k0
With Nabe-Pro and Johnny's as his enemies, he won't just be expelled from showbiz, but would probably be exterminated from this world!
But keep it up!

Feels like Yaguchi Mari is the Akanishi Jin of 2013. If it really is Umeda, I hope he and Mari writes a tell all, since their careers have been ruined, they might as well not go down alone.
