Back in May, there was a report of Yaguchi's illicit affair with a male model, and on the 30th of the same month, she filed for divorce from Nakamura Masaya. After that, she left her regular shows one after another with her poor health as the reason cited.
The comment from Yaguchi is as follows.
"I am terribly sorry for the trouble I caused to many people concerned and all the cast members.
I have received very kind and warm words from everybody.
Thank you for supporting me. I deeply appreciate it.
I have decided to go on hiatus for a while after considering deeply in my own way and discussing with my agency many times.
I am taking this hiatus as my precious time for me to appear in front of everyone looking cheerful again, so I will cherish each day. I would be happy if you watch over me warmly until the day I can resume my activities."
On the same day, she also updated her official blog for the first time in 5 months, and thanked her fans.
She wrote, "To all of you who have been sending me your comments this whole time, I am sorry for worrying you. Thank you very much for the comments. I was reading them every day. You have no idea how much I was saved by your warm words."
In response to this blog entry, many fans are sending her their supportive messages.
