Actor Toyohara Kosuke (52) and actress Koizumi Kyoko (51) have admitted that they are in a relationship.
On February 1, Koizumi announced via her official blog that she has gone independent from her agency. At the same time, she confirmed that she is in a relationship with Toyohara, which was recently picked up by a tabloid magazine. The actor also confessed that they "are in a partnership and have romantic feelings for each other."
Furthermore, Toyohara stated, "It is true that I am a married man. However, some of the things that have been reported by the magazine and internet are not true. Some reports have made it seem that I am already divorced. That is not true. I have a family - a wife and a child."
Toyohara apologized, "Because of this, we have caused worries and trouble to everyone on both sides. I am very sorry." He continued, "This is a problem between me and my family. I am responsible."
Finally, he stated, "My family and I have been living separately for the past three years. They are private citizens who have no involvement with my work. They are carrying out their daily lives in a normal environment. I am very sorry, but I ask that you please refrain from interviewing or inquiring into my family and relatives. I sincerely ask for your understanding."
