Utada Hikaru announced on her blog at U3 on Saturday (March 3) that she is getting a divorce. “Yesterday, on March 2nd, I, Utada Hikaru, and Kiriya Kazuaki, officially divorced,” she writes (translated). “To all the people who have supported us until now, we would like to thank you very much. Our apologies for surprising you with the short notice. We believe that both of us have learned so much and grown up with the 4-year and a half marriage. While we mutually keep changing, a perception gap on the direction of the future and concept of marriage has gradually emerged between us. The lack of communication in our life, passing each other while both are working internationally, is one big reason as well. ‘Though divorce is a pity, it was good that we have met each other’ – that is what we talked. As an creator and a dear friend, we hope we can continue watching the growth of each other. I am looking forward to following Kiriya-kun’s career in the future.”
