TV “talent” Becky, 34, is currently dating Yasuyuki Kataoka, a coach for the minor league Yomiuri Giants baseball team. Sources say that the two met through a mutual friend in the television broadcasting industry and became a couple last month, Sankei Shimbun reported.
Both Becky’s talent agency and Yoshimoto Kogyo, a major entertainment company that manages Kataoka, confirmed earlier this week that the couple are dating.
Becky fell out of favor after a scandal in January 2016, involving an affair with Enon Kawatani, the lead singer of rock band Gesu no Kiwami Otome. After an “exile” from show business, Becky reemerged later that year.
Responding to many congratulatory comments from fans, Becky replied on Instagram, “I would like to move forward slowly and steadily.”
Ogura Tomoaki, the host of Fuji TV morning show “Tokudane,” and a close friend of Kataoka, congratulated the two on live television. He revealed that Kataoka sent him an email saying “things are in full swing.”© Japan Today
