J-ent Reports Maeda Atsuko and Katsuji Ryo Headed for Divorce After He Moved Out in June Over Constant Fights About His Lack of Assistance in Childcare

Okay, hearing this story makes me want to punch Katsuji Ryo in the face, like he legit has an asshole punchable face. J-ent reported in June that married for two years star couple AKB idol-turned-actress Maeda Atsuko and kabuki actor Katsuji Ryo were on the outs as in June 2020 he had moved out of their shared marital residence. Maeda gave birth to their son over a year ago and reportedly Katsuji is hands off dad and doesn’t do any childcare at home. His friends claim it’s merely the stress of raising a child on both parties. Maeda reportedly stopped wearing her ring this month in August and was seen reunited with her former AKB group mates for a charity event sporting super short hair, or what we call “chop it all off, imma need a fresh start!” look. The couples friends say that Maeda was waiting for her husband to come home but he’s won’t so she’s done with trying to save the marriage. Good riddance but oh boy I feel bad for their little baby.

  1. Sigh. This sounds like a normal couple fight escalated by childish, diva like behavior on both sides. Nothing a bit of counseling, discussion and staying away from the media won’t fix. Lots of first time inexperienced parents have these fights when the mother feels she does it all and the man is completely hands off, I think if they both calm down and discuss this, they’ll both come up with a workable solution on both sides. There’s nothing like childcare to bring out stress on a young marriage. Smh.

      • No Cleo, I may not know the specifics of this case, but I have raised four kids, have dozens of nieces and nephews and counseled a lot of new parents in the same situation. A new baby, while a blessing and a joyous thing, brings a lot of stress in a marriage due to childcare issues. It requires a lot of behavioral changes and sacrifices which not everyone is ready for. Some seemingly unprepared parents need extra counseling from more experienced friends or family members who can help them de-escalate stressful situations, provide support and align their priorities. And if there’s no family, and they can afford it, hired help can sometimes fill in the gaps. It takes a village to raise a child after all.

      • That’s definitely what I got from the article.

        He sounds like a selfish loser on all fronts. Won’t care for his own child and moves out in a big flounce.

        I wish the woman well in moving forward without him. Being a new mom isn’t easy- and it’s infinitely harder with a jerk for a partner.
