So strange! Yesterday, TokyoGraph posted an article from Sponichi Annex about Toshi and WANKU having some troubles.
X JAPAN vocalist TOSHI (44) is reportedly headed for divorce. He and his wife Kaori (40) are said to be entering arbitration, however, as Kaori has not consented to the divorce.
Kaori, a former idol who is currently a singer under the name WANKU, married TOSHI in 1997. For a time, she left show business to work as part of TOSHI’s personal management office.
Shortly after TOSHI left X JAPAN in April 1997, he and Kaori met and became involved with the musician MASAYA, who had started a musical movement known as “iyashi-kei” (or “healing music”), along with self-development seminars under an organization called Home of Heart. The following year, TOSHI began receiving pressure from family and fans to leave Home of Heart, which some had labeled as a cult.
After much conflict, and the reunion of X JAPAN in 2008, TOSHI finally decided to break off from MASAYA and Home of Heart. At the same time, he also made his decision to separate from Kaori.
When reached for comment, Kaori denied that they are entering divorce arbitration. TOSHI’s lawyer said that he could not comment due to confidentiality, but an explanation may come early next week.
Not sure how true this is at the moment so I will label it as gossip until there is an official comment from some one on Toshi’s side but isn’t it weird we just talked about the couple over here not too long ago? I hope everything works out for Toshi.
