Ex-bikini model Megumi, 26, recently married musician Kenji Furuya, 29, after living together for two years. Megumi is now 3 months pregnant. Since Furuya is one of the most popular young musicians, some of their friends worry about their new married life.
“When I heard the news that Megumi was pregnant, I wondered what happened to Furuya,” says one music industry insider. “I saw him drinking at a bar with many model-like girls just after the news broke. I'm so impressed that he can enjoy nightlife even with a pregnant wife at home.”
One of Furuya's friends says, “I often see him drinking with lots of different girls. I think girls invite other girls to parties with him. No girl would refuse such an invitation because he is so popular.”
A spokesperson for Furuya's agent says, “We know he often has parties with friends. Some of them are blind-date parties, but everyone has a good time. We don't think it's a bad thing for Furuya's image.”
The president of Megumi's agency, who has been taking care of her since her debut, adds, “Popular artists like Furuya need to interact with many people at such parties. It helps their creativity. Drinking with girls is just part of that.”
Still, insiders caution that Megumi will need to be patient about her husband's partying. After all, when you marry an artist, you have to share him with the public. (Translated by Taro Fujimoto)© Japan Today
