Japanese “talent” Becky, who was “banned” from the Japanese entertainment world since late January due to her affair with musician Enon Kawatani, officially returned to showbiz with an appearance on one of her former regular TV programs this Tuesday.
The 32-year-old greeted the audience at the beginning of the program Full Chorus - Music is Full Chorus” on the cable channel BS Skyperfect TV, by once again apologizing for causing the scandal and promising “to do her best from now on.” Fellow program participants responded by saying “Okaeri,” or “Welcome back,” followed by Becky’s cheerful reply, “Tadaima” ("I’m back").
At the end of the program, Becky posted on her official Instagram account for the first time since January, addressing fans by saying, “I’ve restarted my career. I’m also back on Instagram.”
Becky’s affair with Kawatani was first reported early in January with the release of Shukan Bunshun magazine, which revealed intimate photos and private communication between the talent and Kawatani. The two had reportedly started dating last November, only a few months after his marriage, of which Becky was apparently initially unaware.
The scandal, though Becky’s first in her long career in Japan, led to her complete loss of sponsors and an enforced leave from the showbiz world, causing a major public and media stir in Japan.
Becky and Kawatani have reportedly ended their relationship after the scandal was revealed. The musician announced that he had divorced on his official blog in May.© Japan Today
