Ayumi Hamasaki and her husband are going separate ways. The couple has been married for roughly 2 1/2 years.
Hamasaki made the announcement directly to her fans on the fan club website. "For 3 years, he and I have walked together as partners, but now we each go down our own path," the Hamasaki wrote.
An explanation to the divorce was not given. As of now, there hasn't been an officially filed divorce. However, the two are separated and are not living together. The singer's agency has stated they're refusing to comment on the matter since it's her personal life.
The marriage between Hamasaki and her 10-year younger husband, who at the time was an American medical student, was registered on March 3rd, 2014. In December of 2013 they announced their engagement.
A controversial tweet in late 2015 also seemed to hint the relationship was going badly. However, no confirmation or clarification was given.
