Journalists gathered at Meguro-ku's Himonya mortuary where Keiko Fuji's body rests two days after the singer committed suicide [sic] by jumping off a high-rise apartment in Nishi Shinjuku on the 24th.

Around 50 members of the press were at the venue, but Hikaru Utada still had not shown herself yet. She is thought to be currently in New York, USA.

At 2 pm, a staff member of Himonya explains: "There was no development today. Her family? No one from her family came today". The gates of the funeral hall closed at 5 in the afternoon as the place went silent. Fuji's body is currently being preserved frozen as they wait for Hikaru's return to Japan. The body will be cremated afterwards.

Details surfaced this day concerning her acquaintance, a man in his 30s whom she had been living with in the said apartment for the past 6 years.

A woman in her 70s who resides nearby says: "They were not romantically involved. She was already old enough to be his mother after all. He was looking after Fuji-san in the unit".

Fuji trusted the man, who was also her former manager, as if he was part of her family. There are also reports that her ex-husband Teruzane Utada was the one who asked this man to take care of Fuji. The man himself was shocked, and testified to the police that: "We're not romantically involved. We stayed in separate bedrooms".

Fans flocked to the side of the rail guard underneath Fuji's apartment to offer flowers, beer, and Japanese wine as a makeshift altar was made. According to nearby residents, fans came to visit as early as the 22nd when news of her death broke out. A man in his 30s who came all the way from Niigata prefecture on this day to pay his respects said, "Both my parents were huge fans of hers. I was unable to contain myself so I came here".

Does a 62-year-old need a caregiver?... Is it a severe case of mental disorder?

Keiko Fuji changed after her divorce with Kiyoshi Maekawa, but the reason for their divorce is still a mystery up to this day.
Kiyoshi Maekawa definitely knows everything.
39: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 06:03:33.92 ID:5wa1sDRu0
The 2 were just forced to marry each other, there's no reason or anything that we need to know of about their divorce. Whatever Maekawa knows, there's probably nothing there.

Must be sexual incompatibility
12: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:38:11.29 ID:yDYE95bcO
I didn't know she needed nursing
13: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:38:23.67 ID:FsF2qjgq0
The man she lived with must definitely know a lot.
Everything's shrouded in mystery, expect the tabloids to make their move.
16: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:40:32.33 ID:MZYCAYHT0
How would a 70-year-old woman who just lives nearby know that they're not romantically involved? This article is so suspicious.
26: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:51:07.22 ID:r9mhasIg0
So does the woman who lives nearby have ESP or something?
29: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:53:27.86 ID:xlrOAisCP
Didn't Utada once say when she took her hiatus that she didn't want to become a person who cannot live without the help of her manager?
164: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 09:57:35.59 ID:UwWPQaMS0
She probably knew about the condition of her mother who cannot do anything by herself.
31: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:55:53.56 ID:WH+dI+pr0
There was also a man in the room of Miyu Uehara when she died, right?
33: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 05:57:26.22 ID:japhTtOC0
"Former" manager? Then what is he currently doing? I don't think he has the ability to pay for that unit. Who could be their financier? And for what purpose?
118: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 08:02:12.21 ID:UY7qBFx00
Fuji has a few hundred million, right? Must have been easy for them.
40: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 06:04:14.41 ID:OLkTD5TY0
Eh? Utada still hasn't come back to Japan...?
44: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 06:09:06.61 ID:WH+dI+pr0
If they were really worried about her, wouldn't they have had her hospitalized?
56: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 06:32:50.19 ID:wUjl+zRD0

But in this case, confinement in a hospital would damage the "brand" that is Hikaru Utada, not Keiko Fuji.
168: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 10:07:10.37 ID:hUZcMQX50
I think that not having a proper funeral has a bigger damage towards her reputation though.
66: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 06:48:11.89 ID:XdfFIMiHP
But was it really suicide?
70: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 06:56:39.34 ID:23h6X6JZ0
Why are you guys suddenly coming up with these conspiracy theories? Are you all insane?
87: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 07:21:18.13 ID:nO5q9N+U0
The grannies living nearby are just the ones who are saying that she's being nursed, right? I think he's more like an escort.
94: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 07:29:08.63 ID:nO5q9N+U0
The title of the room belongs to the father, so there's no way they'd let a man they don't know live there. There's no doubt that they would drive someone like that away. It's just natural that they'd let a trustworthy manager live there.
101: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 07:39:23.56 ID:m76hZKdF0

Reports on TV yesterday said that the title of the room belongs to the man in his 30s, not to the father. There's a possibility that Fuji was the financier though.
97: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 07:32:01.42 ID:Z+BQ1m98O
Age-wise, I thought it was Utada's manager. Someone who was assigned to take care of Fuji while Utada is on hiatus.
109: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 07:49:15.44 ID:uBo4nZblP
Don't people normally choose female caregivers? Why a man?
115: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 07:55:59.15 ID:nrez1OKo0
Well, a man who's stronger is a better caregiver for a patient who has suicidal tendencies.
123: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 08:05:50.97 ID:eWpf7K/20
The gender of the caregiver is not the problem for people suffering from paranoia -- people who even reject the presence of their parents and children. The nursing should be handled by a person whom the patient accepts.
127: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 08:19:02.85 ID:i50wp5Tm0
I get this feeling that things would have had a better outcome if they were really in a romantic relationship.
165: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 10:01:20.37 ID:82wjEgli0

Isn't this Hikaru-chan's ex-manager and not Fuji's?
Then the money for the unit and her daily expenses come from Mr. Teruzane. Even if he doesn't have an employment contract, he probably took care of Keiko Fuji as part of his job.
240: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 11:42:18.09 ID:QbPuBD+p0

I think that's the case.
And she's a popular personality so they couldn't afford to send her to a treatment facility.
190: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 10:39:22.45 ID:569j7tEZ0
But if he really is her caregiver, won't this suicide be treated as his responsibility?
192: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 10:42:19.29 ID:oxg9/H8u0

They started living together immediately after she made those crazy remarks on TV due to the seizure of \50 million at the airport, right?
She didn't look like she was in a state that needed nursing at all.
Their living together because of nursing just sounds so unnatural to me.
193: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 10:44:56.01 ID:AdkNTmQ60
Could it be that he was there to keep an eye on her and not to care for her?
There are a lot of matters in the dark, and I think that things will be left in the dark just like that.
210: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 11:06:12.04 ID:nTcehnhO0
Her eyes really looked bad in that interview after \50 million was seized from her at the airport... I personally think that she was drug-dependent.
243: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 11:43:25.97 ID:Lu5X7DKM0
Anyway, I think Utada's not in a stable mental state at the moment.
She should have a mental care specialist beside her, or else, who knows what'll happen to her in the future...
280: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/08/25(日) 13:22:24.50 ID:brBRd5JX0
Such a tragic ending to her life.
And she's just a little over 60...
