Once gossip reporter directly went up to Kawatani one day and tried to ask some questions. When asked if he was dating Matsumoto he gave generic replies trying to avoid the question, such as “I can’t answer” and “Can’t talk about anything, sorry”.

The reporter then boldly asked if Honoka knew about the relationship, and Kawatani instantly went silent. He eventually did reply with another generic response about not being able to answer, then quickly retreated into the apartment before more questions could be asked.

Matsumoto’s agency shared in a statement that they don’t comment on their talents private life.
