Things are developing fast now that the big divorce issued got revealed on Sunday and it looks like Sawajiri Erika is really going to proceed with the divorce.
Sanspo claims to have verified the divorce rumor with several industry officials. Apparently she already started to bring up the issue back in September in meetings with her old agency Stardust. In total there have been 3 discussions regarding her divorce plans.
Now she won't be able to rely on her husband anymore, but it seems like Matsuura Masato, the president of Avex, would love to help her out after her divorce. Apparently he is fascinated by her talent and already contacted her a while ago to work out a deal. A friend also quoted Erika: "Right now there are no good movies in Japan. I think I'm going to start with music again this year."
Will she really sign a deal with Avex and make a comeback as singer this year? "It's true that we are currently in talks to work out a contract," an Avex official commented on the matter. Avex also owns the mobile TV service "Bee TV" and might look into a mobile dorama for Erika to slowly get back on her feet as an actress as well. However, no details about the upcoming contract and her future actions have been announced yet. Avex also refrained from commenting in the divorce rumors.
By the way, her mother didn't know about her daughter's divorce intentions either. She was shocked when she heard it on Sunday. "I didn't hear about any problems between the two," she said. People close to Erika, however, said that she is going to meet with her lawyer within the next couple of days and discuss the details regarding the divorce.
It's such a confusing situation with a couple of overlapping rumors. Will there really be a divorce? Will it be a peaceful divorce? Will she sign a contract with Avex? D'oh...Written by: www.erika-sawajiri.net
