On February 6, former Momoiro Clover Z member Ariyasu Momoka updated her Twitter account revealing that she is dating a doctor with marriage in mind.
Ariyasu uploaded a handwritten message saying, "I am currently dating a non-celebrity man with marriage in mind." On her partner, she shared, "As a doctor, he has been supporting my activities. He will also be supporting me in my work as a representative of Apricot [Ariyasu's independent agency]."
Ariyasu also revealed that she was interviewed by a tabloid magazine the other day regarding this matter. "I actually wanted to inform everybody at a better timing for myself, but I didn't want incorrect information spreading to everybody, so I decided to let you know before the start of my lives in March," she said.
To her fans, she expressed, "I am sorry if this is unpleasant news to some people. However, I, Ariyasu Momoka, will work even harder than before, so it would make me happy if you would continue to watch over me warmly."
