Former Morning Musume member Kago Ai announces her divorce

Two months ago, it was reported that former Morning Musume member Kago Ai’s (27) husband, Kago Haruhiko (47), has been arrested on charges of domestic violence.

On August 9, she updated her blog for the first time in about four months. “To my fans, I am doing very well!” She added, “You may have already heard from news, but I got divorced at the end of last June.”

She conveys her gratitude “Thank you for worrying about me. From now on, I will proceed slowly as I’ve always done. At my own pace, it would be great if I can give you good news little by little. I’d be glad if you could support me”, showing her willingness to resume her entertainment activities.

Kago Ai got married in December 2011. She gave birth to a baby girl the following year. In July 2014, she resumed music activities by forming girls unit “Girls Beat”. In October that year, her husband was arrested on suspicions of lending money at illegal interest rates (not persecuted). In April of this year, she announced on her blog that they are working towards a divorce.
