SMAP leader has a new love interest?
The magazine went on sale on January 17, and reports Nakai has been seen several times with a woman in her late 20s who looks like actress Ryoko Kuninaka.
The two had apparently gone on holiday in Australia earlier this month between January 4 and 9. It has been reported travelers on the same flight had said the woman looked nice, and had a calm manner about her. When Nakai had touched back down in Narita Airport, reporters had asked him about the woman, but the SMAP star stayed quiet.
Previously, Nakai had been dating singer Kumi Koda before the two broke it off in February last year. Sankei Sports newspaper has reported Nakai had met the woman (labeled “A-san”) through a mutual friend.
Since the March 11 disaster, Nakai has been spotted visiting the disaster site several times to help victims. It has been reported A-san had been seen accompanying Nakai during his visits to Fukushima in June and October.
Nakai’s agency, Johnny’s & Associates, has not released any statement.
