Translation/explanation of the article in the SHUKAN BUNSHUN yesterday:
Becky in an affair with Gesu no Kiwami Otome’s vocalist?
This scandal erupted last night and it is huge…
Talent Becky(31) and Kawatani Enon(27) were reported to be in an affair by Bunshun on 6th Jan 2016.
Kawatani Enon is the vocalist of band Gesu no Kiwami Otome, who were invited to perform in Kouhaku for the first time last year. He just got married last summer.
Becky has always maintained a clean image and therefore a favorite amongst advertising companies.
The 2 met in October last year. As Kawatani kept his marriage a secret,Becky did not know until he confessed to her at the end of November.
Bunshun obtained LINE records of their conversation, where Kawatani expressed intentions of divorce to marry Becky.
They spent Christmas Eve together and during the New Year, Becky accompanied Kawatani back to his hometown Nagasaki and met his parents.
That is where they were photographed, and when asked about their relationship, Becky denied and directed Bunshun to her agency. Kawatani was also asked about his marriage,to which he denied. When Bunshun highlighted the name of his wife, he said she is just a friend.
Kind of weird how she's apparently going to lose up to 10 endorsement agreements - and apparently nothing to the guy who hid the fact he was married. Did Japan already get 'the Sharia'?
