Nakashima Mika announces her divorce

Nakashima Mika announced through her official fan site on 3 February that she had divorced her husband Shimizu Kunihiro, a professional volleyball player from Panasonic Panthers, a day earlier when their representative filed the papers on their behalf. There are no alimony payments involved and they do not have any children.

The couple met in 2011 when Nakashima went to watch a volleyball match which he played in and they started dating in summer of the same year before getting married in on Christmas Day 2014 However, as Shimizu is based in Osaka while Nakashima is based in Tokyo, the couple found it increasingly difficult to spend time together even though they tried to travel between both cities to meet and gradually drifted apart. According to insiders, they started to talk about divorce since summer last year and only finalised the paperwork in Feb thus ending their marriage which lasted for three years and one month.
