Actress Miho Nakayama, 44, and her husband, Akutagawa award-winning author and musician Hitonari Tsuji, 52, are planning to get divorced, tabloid media reported Friday.
Nakayama’s management agency said it hadn’t heard anything, but Nikkan Sports quoted a close friend of the couple as saying they are parting ways but won’t rush into it for the sake of their 10-year-old son.
The couple married in 2002 after an 8-month relationship. Nakayama has been mostly a housewife in Paris for the 12 years of their marriage. However, each of them separately went back and forth between Japan and Paris when they had work to do.
On Thursday, Nakayama tweeted, “I have to live my own life. There is no better way. Have to accept everything. Sorry and thank you.”
