Nagiko Tono breaks record for shortest showbiz marriage – divorcing after 72 days

25 Comments

Actress Nagiko Tono, 29, revealed on her blog this week that she had gotten divorced on July 23, just 72 days after registering her marriage on May 13.

Tono married a 27-year-old man working in the food and beverage industry after dating him for six months, and wrote on her blog around the time of their marriage that she thought he was “someone she would always be hand-in-hand with, no matter what awaited them in the future.”

She wrote on Monday that the pair had agreed to get divorced and that they would start anew as friends. She did not elaborate on what led to the break-up, but prior to her July 15 entry – when she suddenly announced she would be taking a break from her blog – she often gave the impression that things were going well. Tono’s agency did not provide any further details.

The 72-day marriage is believed to be the shortest marriage involving someone in the Japanese entertainment world.

I know I'll get a lot of flack for this, but my experience is that really attractive J-ladies are very high maintenance -- seriously self-focused and immature. I can only begin to imagine how bad that would be if they were a celebrity. I agree with observerhere and norinrad21 -- Good that he got out early and with a minimum of damage.

I think most of these talento 'blogs' are blags - puff pieces written by some flunky in the celeb's agency purely for image and publicity.

Brittney Spears and Jason Alexander got married in Las Vegas and lasted 55 hours, so 72 days is a long time, at least it lasted for couple periods.

Who is she again? I think this guy is very lucky because she doesn't look like someone fun to be with.

Check out the look on her face! He is one lucky guy! What a b!tch!

Doesn't Japan have marriage annulments for marriages lasting less than a year or do they have to go through the whole divorce process?

Stirfry, she's the world record holder for shortest celebrity marriage, didn't you read. Can't wait for her next challenge.

yokomoc-you think she will try and break the record again? lol.

I'm not sure...should you go about breaking your own records? As a Japanese tarento she's capable of so much more. Eating most disgusting food while saying "oishiiiiii" with a straight face. Longest pause/blankest expression before laughing hysterically at a comedian host's joke. Most variety show appearances in a week. Fakest smile. Most consecutive rooftop/seaside appearances in a drama. I don't think she should pigeonhole herself.

very true. Like you said, I can not wait for her next challenge, hopefully it will be the later.

I'm just waiting for her recording career! Or they should put her on Quiz Hexagon, she seems to have baka tarento qualities...

Matumura Kunihiro has the shortest record for a showbiz marriage. He married in the morning and divorced the same day that afternoon.

Granted, it was part of a TV show bit and done to see if it could be done but he is considred to have been legally married and legally divorced.

She looks like such a joy to be around, shame the marrage didn't work.
