Miyazawa Rie announces the finalisation of her divorce

Miyazawa Rie announced through a fax statement to the media on 18 March that she has divorced her husband after going through negotiations for close to 4 years. The couple met in Hawaii when Miyazawa was there at the end of 2007 for a CM shooting and her husband who is a former surfer and entrepreneur, was the coordinator for that trip. Miyazawa later announced that she was six months' pregnant in February 2009 and the couple got married two months later. Their daughter was born on 20 May the same year. However, Miyazawa revealed in May 2012 that the couple had already separated and were in the midst of divorce negotiations due to differences in their thinking. It was reported that Miyazawa's husband was shuttling between Hawaii and Japan which led to problems from an early stage. The divorce negotiations took a long time primarily due to their daughter's custody issues but it is believed that Miyazawa has obtained custody and her daughter is due to enter primary school in April.

In her statement, Miyazawa commented that the decision was made after numerous discussions and she hopes that with the divorce finalised, she will move on with new resolution as an actress and a mother and called for the support of everyone around her.
