Utada Hikaru Addresses Divorce Rumors and its Sexism

Utada Hikaru has been generating buzz with her comeback album releasing next month. However, this attention also ignited rumors about her husband using her for her money and an impending divorce. Today, Utada addressed this rumor via Twitter.





(Translation - The bottom of the list of things I look for in a life partner: Economic strength.)

This isn't the first time this rumor has been reported. Two months after the couple got married, Japanese media alleged that Utada's then-fiance was broke, unemployed, and living off of Utada's money. Although her husband was a bartender at a London hotel, he quit his this job before he married Utada. There were also rumors about him opening a Japanese restaurant in London.


[Utada on Sexism]Utada also noted the sexism in how the media and society views relationships with a wealthy individual.





(Translation: When a wealthy man is with a cute girl who thinks highly of him, the world thinks nothing of it. Yet, when the genders are flipped, for some reason there’s an issue? Boys have it rough.)


Do you agree with Utada's observation of sexism in how her marraige has been covered?
Edit: Italics added to translation to emphasize sarcasm.
