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’.

Even after their divorce, there is never less attention from the media regarding Japanese stars Takaoka Sosuke and Miyazaki Aoi’s marriage on the headlines of tabloid magazines; the most recent being Takaoka’s newly unleashed storm of bitterness in the form of tweets.
According to Tokyo Hive, the actor was relentlessly attacking his ex-wife, Miyazaki Aoi, her agency, and V6’s Okada Junichi, who he claimed was having an affair with Miyazaki when they were still married.
Bear in mind that this is a new Twitter account for Takaoka, as his previous account was deleted due to his hateful tweet about the ‘Korean New Wave’, which also led to his resignation from his agency and the derailment of his career. Despite a new start in the social networking verse, Takaoka’s tweets still consist of the same old bitterness regarding his failed marriage.
According to his side of the story, Miyazaki was involved in several affairs even though she was his wife, one of which involved Okada. He called Okada “such an immoral man that he even makes a move on a wife while her husband is overseas”, referring to the time when Takaoka was in Korea, where he ended up making the unfortunate tweet on Korean culture.
Takaoka also accused Miyazaki’s agency, Hirata Office, for spreading rumours that the divorce was because of him, and that they were doing it to make him responsible for the damages.
“Some sponsors were demanding compensation from them and that’s why their employees started spreading all kind of rumours about me,” he mentioned in one of his tweets.
But the biggest attack was against his ex-wife, who he not only said to be “not such a great actress”, but claimed that she had several affairs, and has a “rotten brain”.
“In the midst of the husband getting attacked by the mass media, the wife suddenly leaves the house. He isn’t able to get in contact with her nor is she willing to have a talk with him at all.
“How can you feel sorry for a woman who is saying that she’s the happiest [she’s been] after the break-up, even though it was her who was committing adultery during that period? I pity her fans who just believe whatever she says,” he wrote in one tweet.
He added, “Come to think of it, I was always made out as the bad guy in this marriage. You don’t know how relieved I felt when I was finally released from this situation.
However, when asked about his trip to a love hotel with gravure idol Kinbara Asuka back in 2009, he denied that they had done anything during that night.
“There was nothing at all, not even a kiss,” he replied in a tweet.
Japanese actor Nagayama Kento has been hospitalised after suffering a broken knee from a motor accident.
According to Tokyo Hive, Nagayama fell over his motorcycle while on his way back home from voice training. A witness called the emergency services and he was sent to the hospital, where he had to endure surgery.
Nagayama is expected to be hospitalised for a month until he recovers.
Meanwhile, his agency’s official website commented on Nagayama’s accident; “After the accident, Nagayama is fully conscious, and he deeply regrets what he has caused due to his own carelessness. He is admonishing himself for what he has done, and has decided to devote his time to treatments.”
As a result of the accident, Nagayama has been replaced by Nakamura Tomoya for an upcoming stage play in May.

Singer Akanishi Jin and actress Kuroki Meisa’s marriage are off to a rocky start as Johnny’s Entertainment has cancelled Akanishi’s Japan tour as punishment for his sudden marriage announcement to Kuroki.
According to Tokyo Hive, Akanishi was scheduled for a five city tour in his home country, starting from April to May. However, just as the agency was about to announce the dates of the concerts, Akanishi went ahead and made the announcement about his marriage to Kuroki.
This had upset the agency because Akanishi had failed to inform his agency about his intentions to marry Kuroki first before making the news public. Therefore, the agency decided to make him responsible for his actions by cancelling his tour.
Although the dates of the seven concerts were never announced since it was cancelled after Akanishi’s announcement, the agency has decided to make him pay for the cancellation fees for each of the venues that had been booked for the tour, which is believed to run into the millions of Yen for each location.
Meanwhile, Kuroki made her first public appearance at a product launch for Bandai since she was forced to cancel all her public appearances, including the release event for her latest album in February, after the announcement.
During the event, Kuroki said that she was happy and her physical condition was ‘alright’, although some reports suggest that Kuroki was three months pregnant.
When asked about her alleged pregnancy, she replied; “I will talk about it at another time.”
Akanish and Kuroki registered their marriage on 2 February of this year.
