But, even from now on, work is work, and personal is personal, and I’ll properly keep the two separate and give you the best performances as always.” Uchiyama also acknowledged the relationship on his own blog.

Hamasaki was previously married to Austrian actor Manuel Schwarz, but they divorced in January after just one year.
