ONE OK ROCK’s Ryota rumored to have married Avril Lavigne’s sister

Reported by ONE OK ROCK members today on the first stop of their 2017 “AMBITIONS JAPAN TOUR” in Shizuoka, the band’s bassist Ryota Kohama got married this past month!

I got married this month! Her name is Michelle! I’m pleased to announced that we’re husband and wife,” Ryota elated.

The internet is abuzz with rumors that he in fact has married the younger sister of Canadian pop-rock singer (who is known for her reciprocal love of Japan as demonstrated through her hit song “Hello Kitty“) Avril Lavigne.

Most recently, Avril was featured on the track “Listen” from ONE OK ROCK’s new US debut album, Ambitions.

The speculation is fueled by a private social media account “misher11“, followed by ONE OK ROCK members Toru and Ryota. The account self-identifies as “Michelle Kohama“, taking Ryota’s surname, and uses her face as her profile picture. Michelle has been known by Avril Lavigne fans to stay out of the spotlight, so it’s likely we won’t get much of a confirmation from the couple.

Throughout their current nation-wide tour, ONE OK ROCK will be joined by various guest stars such as WANIMA, Fall Out Boy, Mr. Children, and Suchmos on select dates until the tour’s conclusion in Hiroshima on May 17.

    • This is just so fast. I swear he was just dating Haruka.🤔 Ive should’ve known better tho when the pics of him and the blond(Michelle) came out, that they might’ve broken up.

      Anyways Congratulations on your marriage, Ryota. 😋

      Ryota’s IG account still be Ryota_0809 which is his ex-gf, Japanese actress who dated him for years and they’re on public. I’m not surpried he’s married but he just met Michelle when OOR tour with 5sos and went to Canada….

        i dont really follow this group but isnt this really random??

        • Lol, It really is. The estimated time they known each other is 6 months compared to his ex; who probably been together for 2 years.

          • misa(accidental nb troll)

            i dont know why i’m curious but does he know english or she knows japanese? do other members also have gfs? lol

            • Ryota english is passable at best with lots of gestures. Idk anything abt Michelle. Nor anything abt the other members having girlfriends. There was the time people thought Taka(vocalist) and Rola were dating. He shut that down and told fans if he has a lover he’ll let us know.

              • misa(accidental nb troll)

                if he has a lover he’ll let us know=NEVER HAPPENS lol . i guess there is no japanese dispatch. thank you<3

                • OhNana

                  If he has a lover, he WILL let us know, i assure you. He’ll let us know after he already married his lover. Lol

                • JP dispatch is Shunkan Bunshun and FRIDAY probably 10x worst than dispatch.

                  No problem,❤

                  • misa(accidental nb troll)

                    oh i guess they dont really have a lot of scandals cause i really couldnt find anything. why is it worse tho?

                    • Well with OOR probably not besides the time Taka was still part of Johnny’s.

                      They really dont have a problem with exposing anything and I mean anything. I know dispatch can expose a lot, but maybe on a differ level.

                    • minh

                      Sunken Bunshun and Friday are lovely magazines that like ruin celebrity careers. It’s like Dispatch on steroids, they literally don’t give a shit and will run stories on anything and everything. Just recently Friday drove the actor Hiroki Narimiya to an early retirement. :/


                      Bu honestly, Dispatch is still pretty new in the game so in a decade or so they’ll probably be just as bad haha…

                      • misa(accidental nb troll)

                        oh i’ve seen this in asian junkie. i felt so bad for him. atleast dispatch doesnt really talk about gay people cause im sure if they wanted to get something they could.

    • OhNana

      Well, congrats! I still think this was really fast but whatever.

    • Welp

      What a small world, congrats tho :)

    • Karen Khoo

      IT’S A SHOCK!! Nvm that means more OOR collab with Avril!

    • Just Tim

      Happy for them.

      May they be a stable, healthy family, and congrats to Ryota’s newly-found aspect in life as a family man.

    • Giau

      wow this is awesome

    • Rose

      This is shocking! Last I heard, he was dating some model named Haruka, and now he’s married to Avril Lavigne’s sister? I didn’t realize they were all that close… Wow. Wonder if she’s pregnant already (I’ve noticed a lot of Japanese celebs tend to get married as soon as they find out they’re pregnant, to save face and all). Just me being nosey, though. Wish the best for them!

    • starlightshimmers

      They’ll have beautiful babies, guaranteed.

    • unexpected

      Great for them….but it’s a rumor or it’s confirmed? ???

      • Nicole

    • Queen_Of_The_Yokai537
