Yada's management says she, Oshio had been living apart

22 Comments

Police on Tuesday searched the home of actress Akiko Yada, 30, the wife of Manabu Oshio, who was arrested for suspected use of the drug Ecstasy. The search was completed in under an hour, but mass media tailed the police to Yada's home in Takatsu Ward in Kawasaki, causing the actress to flee out the back entrance of the building. Police have indicated they would like to question Yada in regard to the case.

After Oshio's arrest on Tuesday, more than 50 journalists, along with the couple's neighbors and local residents, gathered outside the apartment building. However, Yada and her 1-year-old son were nowhere to be seen.

Yada's management later issued a statement by fax that revealed the couple had been living separately for the past six months. "Both ourselves and Yada are shocked and saddened by this sudden bolt out of the blue. Ms Yada is taking this extremely hard, and feels responsibility as Mr Oshio's wife, even though the couple have been separated."

Yada has yet declined to make a statement personally.

Wow, nice photo.

I couldn't care less about these people, but couldn't the authorities handle these cases a bit more discreet. Talk about overzealous. It's terrible. No wonder that Ms. Kasai went "missing". I am already pissed when a fully uniformed cop shows up to check if I am still living on the address as stated on my paperwork. With the neighbours watching.

What a load of the time wasting... move on, get a life this is not important to further the human race.

The police should be a little discrete when performing these type of investigations. Is there a hotline directly to the media from the police station?

Word is, the dead chick in connection to Oshio was another known personality. No wonder Yada's distancing herself from this.

"Living apart"?

This sounds like a bit of quick spin on the part of the management agency. Indeed, how could a starlet in this country be knowingly shacked up with a druggie. As I point out yesterday, it is only a matter of time before the divorce notice is made public.

With regard to the police and the media, the whole lot of them are in cahoots with each other. Through the press club system (in this case the NPA press club), the lazy goons of the media don't have to get off their bxtts and search out stories themselves. All they have to do is regurgitate the facts as dictated by their police "contacts". This has the benefit of allowing the police to keep the media on a very short leash. These police searches and those carried out by the Tokyo Public Prosecutors Office are manifestations of this warped system.

Another typical celeb "relationship" and "love life". Would be interesting to see what tey said to the press back when they got hitched....

Of course, same as in any country.

They keep talking about this guy's drug charge, when in fact his real crime here is allowing that girl to die instead of helping her when she fell ill.

Still think he should be summarily crucified for such a cowardly act.

Don't quite follow the sequence, did she flee from the media or the police? Why would the police say they want to question her, they were at her house, unless she took off on them. And agree with tkoind2 above about the real crime, but so far suspected drug use is all he has been arrested for.

Also, I don't remember any other case where the victim's name has been withheld this long. Maybe there have been, but you gotta wonder about why.

My guess is that she ran for one of two reasons: (1) she hit the road to avoid the media and to protect her child, or (2) she hit the road to avoid a drug test that would surely come in this gistapo state. Presumably she was not with the drugged-up couple at the time since that drug is associated with sex and late night partying, so why should the police want to chase her around or even question her?

If she wants to be gone, then let her. Who yanked her license.

i'm sure the police would love to search Yada's home too, so they can leak details of her personal life to some gossip rag for money. speculation, yes. improbable, no. this morning's news said the room where the dead woman was found belongs to the owner of Peach John (PJ) the japanese lingerie company. moreover, the dead woman was a ginza hostess Oshio had been bonkin'. that Oshio guy, despite bein' a V-Cinema loser, certainly had a way with the ladies ... he he he. too bad for him, he couldn't keep it in his pants.

I always love it when posters claim this type of story doesnt interest them and they couldnt care less and whatever etc........................but yet they post.

Good news is the son is too young to remember all this. Hope Yada moves on and builds a good life for herself and her boy.

Her #1 concern should be for her child, not the dirt bag she married. I don't blame for distancing herself, he isn't worth the effort.

But the cops should have been more discreet, she did nothing wrong and there is a child to consider.

Isn't it a bit like the Noripi story, when the woman flees from police with the child, to avoid being questioned and tested herself? Except Yada-san is at least reasonable.. Celebrity world is full of drugs, the only difference is that husbands have the courage to take them outside the house! What a joke..

LOveUSA: It is showbiz trivia. They lived apart like , reality or false , lets find out later and all.

I heard she was with him when his was arrested. Her and management are doing damage control to not ruin her career. Also to protect her life with her son. Example: stay away until the drug leaves your system and say not living together for 6 months.
