member Ai Kago
is no longer wearing her wedding ring and is believed to be consulting with an attorney to file for divorce from her husband Haruhiko Kago
According to reports, Kago was seen travelling to a nearby Korean restaurant where she met with a divorce attorney. When she left the restaurant, reporters noticed that she did not have her wedding ring on, prompting speculation that she is preparing for divorce.
Kago's husband is a known member of the Yamaguchi-gumi Yakuza crime syndicate. At the end of October of 2014, a warrant for his arrest was issued
. Police had accused him of being a loan shark and setting an interest rate that was higher than the legal limit.
Mr. Kago eventually turned himself into the police
, but stated that he was not guilty of the crimes he was accused of. On December 11, 2014, prosecutors dropped all charges against him
. No reason was provided for the decision.
Because of her husband's legal troubles, Ai Kago suspended group activities for her newly formed trio Girls Beat!!. Group activities have not resumed, and it is unclear whether the group has disbanded or is just on hiatus.
