Erika Sawajiri signs on to AVEX  
Avex Management Group has formally announced on their official website that they have formed a partnership with the private agency of 25-year-old talent, Sawajiri Erika. Avex Group will now be formally managing the young actress in her Japan-based activities.

According to Avex, the partnership was formed with the Japanese branch of Sawajiri's agency - no name was provided.

The contract was signed on April 1st, but future activities for Sawajiri are still being discussed between the two parties. Max Matsuura, president of Avex Group, denies claims that the agency required Sawajiri to divorce her husband, media creator Takashiro Tsuyoshi, before offering her a contract, and also declined further comment when questioned about Sawajiri's impending divorce, claiming "That is a private matter between them."
