Suzuki Sawa & Yoshikawa Sumihiro announce their divorce
Suzuki Sawa and Yoshikawa Sumihiro have ended their marriage as announced by their agencies in a fax statement on 15 May. In the statement also released on Sawa's blog, the couple decided to go their separate ways as they realised that they have different aspirations for their future. Despite living separately since April this year to overcome their differences, the couple could not make things work and decided to end their four-year marriage. It was mentioned in the statement that they went to the ward office to file the divorce application on the same day of the statement's release and that there was no alimony involved. Despite rumours of Yoshikawa seeing another woman as reported in June this year, the couple denied that infidelity was the reason for the break-up and used the opportunity to clear things up.
Suzuki and Yoshikawa got married in October 2011 after working together in a stage play.
