Actress Erika Sawajiri, 24, on Sunday confirmed her plan to divorce 46-year-old media creator Tsuyoshi Takashiro. After attending a publicity event for beauty clinic Takano Yuri as a special guest, Sawajiri, who has been hounded by the press following her erratic behavior, rumors of divorce and reconciliation attempts with her husband, held a press conference at which she said: "We have agreed to file for divorce."
Sawajiri tearfully said that if the Japanese public could forgive her recent rebellious behavior, she planned to change her attitude and return to her celebrity lifestyle in Japan (she had spent much of the last 12 months in Spain). Sawajiri also explained that her sudden disappearance from public view last September was an attempt to maintain her privacy while she and Takashiro discussed divorce proceedings.
"It took three months to get to this point," she explained. "I think my mental state has been affected by the strain. I would like to conclude this matter as quickly as possible and return my life to some sense of normality."© Japan Today
