On January 26th, Akanishi Jin and Kuroki Meisa’s agencies released official statements regarding the recent rumor about a possible relationship.
News outlet Sponichi (or ‘Sports Nippon’) broke the news about an alleged date at Tokyo DisneySea and possible romantic relationship between Akanishi and Kuroki on January 25th. Naturally, all of the outlets now tried to get an official statement from both of their agencies. Sanspo was one of the first to publish their statements online.
Akanishi’s agency stated, “We know that they are friends, but they aren’t in a relationship. Moreover we heard that they went to Tokyo DisneySea with several friends.” Kuroki’s agency wrote a similar statement with, “It’s true that they went to Tokyo DisneySea, but several friends were with them. He (Akanishi) is just a friend.”
