X JAPAN TOSHI and former idol wife to divorce
It was discovered on the 15th that X JAPAN vocalist TOSHI (44) and wife Kaori (40), who is currently active as a singer under the name "WANKU", have begun discussions pointing towards divorce. TOSHI has withdrawn from the self-development seminar "Home over heart", which he was participating in with his wife.

According to a friend, it was TOSHI who started talking about divorce. A big reason was the farewell with MASAYA (57), who the couple came to adore.

Kaori is a former idol. She has done activities under the name Moritani Kaori, and she met TOSHI in 1993 when they co-starred in the rock opera "Hamlet". They dated for may years before marrying on 14/2/1997. After that, she temporarily retired from the entertainment world.

TOSHI has admired MASAYA since he met Kaori. They first met in August 1997. He received influence from the healing music MASAYA creates, too. Directly after his wedding in April 1997, TOSHI reported his withdrawal from X JAPAN after musical disagreements with YOSHIKI. With that as a trigger, X JAPAN broke up at the end of that year.

The next year, fans and relatives tried to make TOSHI withdraw from the self-development seminar, and thereafter, there were frequent conflict. According to those surrounding them, after X JAPAN reformed he gradually began to say, "It seems I have found something else that believes in me," and soon left the seminar.

At the same time, he decided to divorce his wife. But, his wife does not agree, and the are reports that the two have entered divorce conciliation, too.

TOSHI is currently staying in Los Angeles. Kaori stated to Sponichi, "There is no (divorce consolation). Even if we do sooner or later, I have not said anything." TOSHI's lawyer stated, "I cannot say anything because there is a duty of confidentiality. But, I think I want to explain at the beginning of the new week."

sorry if it's not very clear :x feel free to edit the way I've written it, if you please.
