It was all a case of misunderstanding when Speed memberUehara Takako was spotted holding the hands of a child at the Naha Airport while she was visiting her hometown in Okinawa.
According to Tokyo Hive, a rumour started spreading that Ueharahad a child out of wedlock with fiancé ET-King member Tenn, when an airport staff had mistakenly identified the child to be hers. When Uehara first heard about the rumours from her mother, she clarified on her official blog that the child was not hers, but was her nephew.
However, Uehara was flattered that she was mistaken as the mother of the child, saying:
“If it looked like I was at ease holding my nephew, I am happy. I guess I looked like a mother.”
Uehara added that she would let everyone know ‘when that time comes’.

According to CBS News/Celebrity Circuit Lil Wayne said that after a recent NBA playoffs ticket dispute he felt unwelcome and “unwanted” at the Oklahoma City arena and isn’t planning to return.
The rapper said two Thunder players — Kevin Durant and James Harden — had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday’s fourth game of the Western Conference Finals.
“That’s not the point, though,” he told The Associated Press in an interview Friday night. “It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like `I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you … I’m in Forbes,” he said, laughing.
Lil Wayne claimed in a tweet Thursday night that he had been “denied by the team to be in their arena.” The team responded by saying the seats he wanted were already taken.
He said he typically procures tickets for such games “from this guy named Mike.” Lil Wayne said Mike had requested special security, parking and entrance for the rapper, but Mike said the team responded that they would only sell the seats for Mike’s personal use.
Lil Wayne said a manager had advised him not to return to the city’s arena for sports events or concerts, but “I never say never.”
He said he felt welcome at other arenas including Miami, and likes being able to energize players — many of whom are fans of his music — on their home court.
“That’s like me going on stage and … seeing LeBron (James) in the crowd with his hand up. I’m going to perform a little bit harder,” he said.
But in Oklahoma, he said that while “the players want me there, I don’t want to feel — I’m going to still feel unwanted.”
“Of course, when someone tells Lil Wayne, `No,’ that he can’t come in, `We’re sold out,’ you feel a certain way. Unfortunately, it had to go down like that,” said Durant, the three-time NBA scoring champion.
“We’d have loved to have him here in Oklahoma City. We’d have welcomed him with open arms. Hopefully, we get past that and next time he can come and enjoy a game.”
A team spokesman has said Lil Wayne’s representatives insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs.
“It was just a misunderstanding. We were sold out of tickets, I heard, and we didn’t come through,” Durant said. “He knows a few of us on the team and he knows it’s nothing like that. We offered him tickets to tonight but he had to do something. He’s a superstar in his own right, so he can’t just pick up and go to a game.
“He had something to do, but I’m sure if his schedule was free, he would have came tonight. We’re still inviting him to games — maybe not this year. Next year or whatever.”
Nicollette Sheridan‘s wrongful termination lawsuit against Touchstone over her dismissal from “Desperate Housewives” was dealt a critical blow yesterday when an appeals court issued a ruling scrapping a September retrial.
The ruling, according to The Hollywood Reporter, also overturns the trials judge’s denial of Touchstone’s motion for directed verdict — meaning the appeals court believes Touchstone should have won the trial in the first place.
The appeals court went on to say, “It is further ordered that the retrial currently set for Sept. 10 is hereby stayed pending further order of the court.”
Sheridan’s lawsuit isn’t completely dead … but it is on its last legs.
