Popular comedian Tamura Atsushi (37) of the duo London Boots 1go 2go has found a new girlfriend. According to Josei Seven, Tamura spent the night at the apartment of Non-no fashion model Yano Mikiko (24) earlier this month.
Josei Seven says that both of them were enjoying a meal at an izakaya in Tokyo with a group of about 30 people, including television staff members. After that, Tamura headed to Yano’s apartment and spent the night there, and they made sure to leave at different times the next morning.
Tamura’s agency, Yoshimoto Kogyo, has confirmed the relationship. A source close to the couple says that they got to know each other through work around the start of this year. Yano later appeared on the “London Hearts” television show in May. The magazine also reports that Yano was dating someone else initially, but Tamura’s aggressive approach won her over.
Tamura was previously dating singer Amuro Namie (33), but they broke up last summer. In May of last year, Yano was rumored to be dating JYJ member Jejung (25).
