Just after 2 o’clock in the morning on Jan 16, a couple was seen coming out of a Nishi-Azabu multitenant building. The two were tottering, or rather, the man had his arm tightly around the woman’s waist as though to keep her from falling. Passersby turned around to stare at the tall man, who was actor Hideaki Ito, 34.
While some curious onlookers whispered to each other if the woman could be the actor’s new girlfriend, Ito ignored the questioning look of bystanders and held the attractive woman who had a model-like figure.
In the past, Ito was rumored to be in a relationship with Fuji Television newscaster Minako Nakano. So could this woman be his new girlfriend?
It was obvious that the woman was heavily intoxicated and could hardly stand on her feet by herself. Ito escorted the woman into a taxi, which delivered the two to a high-end condominium in Minato Ward that appeared to be the actor’s home. Ito first came out of the car, followed by the woman who collapsed on the pavement. Helping her up, the actor hugged her close and took her into the building.
Shukan Post inquired with Ito’s agency to find out about the nature of the relationship between the two. “The woman in question is an acquaintance of Ito, and they are not ‘involved’ in any other manner. It is our understanding that the two were joined later at his home by other friends who had been drinking with them in Nishi-Azabu,” was the reply.
There already are numerous amorous rumors flying about in the show business world this year – plenty to keep fans and the curious entertained.© Japan Today
