It's been announced that Takagi Sayuki's activities in Juice=Juice and Hello! Project have come to an end.
According to Hello! Project's official website, Up Front Promotion talked to Takagi regarding the dating rumors that were recently published by 'Bunshun Online.' The reports stated that Takagi is currently dating singer-songwriter Yuuri and are partially living together. After hearing her explanation, they determined that she is "lacking awareness as a Hello! Project member," which led to this conclusion. As such, she will not be participating in all scheduled concerts and events from February 13 onward.
Takagi also released a statement saying, "It was careless behavior due to my lack of awareness as a member of the group. I've betrayed a lot of people's feelings. The time I spent in Hello Pro Egg and Juice=Juice is irreplaceable, and I will never forget meeting my important friends, staff, and fans. I can't thank you enough."
Takagi joined Hello! Project as a Hello Pro Egg (currently Hello Pro Kenshusei) in November of 2009. She started her activities as a member of Juice=Juice in February of 2013, who made their major debut with "Romance no Tochu / Watashi ga Iu Mae ni Takishimenakyane (MEMORIAL EDIT) / Samidare Bijo ga Samidareru (MEMORIAL EDIT)" later in September.
