In some unfortunate news, J-pop star Ayumi Hamasaki has announced her separation with her husband, Tyson Bodkin after three years together.

Ayumi took to her official Team Ayu blog to make the announcement and stated that she intends to focus on tour rehearsals and new music for now. 

Here's Ayumi's blog post in full:

Today, there’s something I need to tell you all.

My partner, the man who walked this road with me together for three years, and I have decided to part ways. He is walking his own path, and I will walk mine.

As far as this announcement goes, I’m writing here because I wanted you to hear it from me first. For now, I’m focused on rehearsals for the TA tour and recording new songs and will keep on going!!!

Have a lovely Sunday.

This separation will be Ayumi's second divorce, having previously married Austrian actor Manuel Schwarz in 2011.

It's always sad to see a couple break-up, and we wish the two the best for whatever lies in the future.
