Hideaki Ito spotted with heavily intoxicated woman

28 Comments

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.

It was kind of him to give her a place to crash. I agree with bdiego that it's weird someone followed them to write this story.

Brilliant! Drunken J-bird, no talent actor, probably had relations, etc. Has all the right buttons for a tabloid story.

Tokudane probably dedicated about 40 minutes coverage to this story.

I hate that show.

What's creepier is the unwritten fact that some reporter found out about them walking out of the bar and followed their taxi all the way to his place taking notes.

Taking an 'intoxicated' girl up to your apartment is one thing. dragging a girl that was too drunk to stand up into your apartment is a whole different thing entirely... Although Im sure he just gave her a glass of water and slept on the couch.

So, let me see...the question concerning us is the identity of the actor's consort and nature of her relation to this "actor", and not the fact that wandering through the streets too drunk to stand up might be deemed dysfunctional if not outright alcoholic behavior?

What does this say about our readers and this society...

Not sure about this. It's rumoured that Ito, like Yamamoto Taro and Kaneshiro Takeshi, is gay, and had problems with keeping his manhood from growing while on the set of Umizaru. Could this all just be a set-up to keep his female admirers happy, something which happened a lot in fifties/sixties Hollywood?

Who is this Hideaki Ito?

These stories are not "irrelevant" under the category they are reported. They give me stress/comic relief after reading the bad news...

date rape maybe... ? or do japanese women get so drunk they colapse on pavements?

h shot a bogey by only being with 1 intoxicated girl. For a guy with his looks there should have been 2-3 drunk girls to rustle.

Surely if you haven't got a life of your own, then it should be fine to feed off other people.

Wow. Talk about lame reporting. If this is the quality of 'news' that people will be expected to pay for... Sign me up! Next: Elvis spotted on Mars! Dog with two heads barks Biblical verses! JapanToday, you've hit a new low. Also a mis-copied typo: Hikdeaki Ito, 34. Too many ks, I think.

I love it when people mock a story for how irrelevant it is...but yet take the time to post their displeasure with it.

If you dont like it, dont post a comment about it. Better yet, dont click on the link to begin with.

attractive woman who had a model-like figure

That narrows it down to about 60% of Japanese women in their 20s and 30s.

Gripping stuff! Please tell us more!

In fact, this sort of "reporting" should be made illegal with a piece of legislation called the "Paparazzi Are Scum Act".
