On April 23, actress Maeda Atsuko (29) updated her Instagram account announcing that she has divorced her husband, actor Katsuji Ryo (34).
Maeda and Katsuji tied the knot in July of 2018 after co-starring in the drama 'Dokonjo Gaeru' (2015) and movie 'Taberu Onna' (2018). They had their first child in March of 2019.
Maeda wrote, "It's a personal matter, but I, Maeda Atsuko would like to announce that after repeated discussions with Katsuji Ryo-san, we submitted our divorce registration papers the other day." She continued, "During our three years of marriage, there were differences in our lifestyle and values, and little by little, our pace and direction started to change so we decided to take different paths. Although we are no longer husband and wife, we will always be the father and mother to our only son, so we will do our best to raise him together." She concluded, "I will use these experiences to work harder as Maeda Atsuko and as an actress, so please continue to support me as well as Katsuji Ryo-san."
Maeda's starring films 'Kurenazume,' 'Byplayers ~Moshimo 100nin no Meiwakiyaku ga Eiga wo Tsukuttara~,' and 'Okusama wa, Toriatsukai Chuui' are currently showing in theaters. Katsuji currently stars in NTV's drama 'Nemesis' as detective Chikuma Takahiro.
