Maki Yoko announces her divorce

Maki Yoko announced her divorce from her former actor-husband Katayama Reo through her agency on 26 September. The couple who got married in November 2008 and have a six-year-old daughter born in May 2009, filed their divorce application at a ward office in Tokyo earlier this month. Maki retains custody rights of their daughter.

It was reported that the reason for the breakdown of their marriage was due to differences in their lifestyles and thinking as the years went by. As their daughter is due to enter primary school next April, the couple were said to have decided to go their separate ways before that and mutually agreed that Maki will be the one to raise their daughter. Katayama used to be an actor but had quit before marrying Maki and is said to be in preparations to become a writer.
