There’s always two sides to every story. Regretfully, the only people who probably know the truth, are those involved. This is certainly the case for ORβIT (ORBIT) member Ando Tomoaki (安藤 誠明).
The Japanese-South Korean boy group member recently got into a nasty scandal. It supposedly involves his secret lover and some rather kinky behaviour. Unfortunately for Ando, better known as Tomo (トモ), his lover got her story out first.
According to reports, his lover is 30 years old and works as a female model accompanying the pit crew in Japanese motor racing. 25-year-old Tomo had supposedly met her in December 2019, before dating her in January 2020. He’d later started his career with ORβIT in February.
Tomo had supposedly lived with her in Tokyo and for a while, things were good. The idol allegedly promised to marry her in two years and regularly brought it up. Additionally, he asked her to switch to an office job. Tomo apparently wasn’t comfortable with her showing herself off so much. However, what changed her mind about everything was how Tomo was in bed.
“At first, I was lightly strangled,” the woman reportedly said. “I was surprised, but (Tomo) was kind afterwards so I accepted it.” Unfortunately, it didn’t stop there. Tomo would supposedly beat, bite and strangle her during their sexual activities. The lady claimed that Tomo wouldn’t stop, not even when she asked. She added that the idol would become violent and jealous when drunk.
On 19th February, the police got involved when the two had an altercation on the streets in Shibuya. Tomo supposedly knocked her down during the argument and the neighbours called it in. Although they smoothed the matter over, things supposedly got worse for her. She eventually attempted suicide but Tomo managed to rescue her by calling emergency services. However, she alleged that the police later told her to stay away from Tomo. Apparently, he had claimed that she was a stalker.
Tomo’s agent later spoke up to clarify the issue. They denied the claims of Tomo being abusive and alleged the woman had been the one pushing Tomo to get married. The agent added that the idol had wanted to focus on his career instead of marriage. They did admit to his lover’s suicide attempt. However, they claimed that Tomo refused to criminalise her. As such, they decided to get the police to warn her off.
An official statement released by the company shed further light on the issue. According to them, Tomo had only informed them about the woman on 26th May 2022. He had supposedly tried to end things between them several times. But she supposedly threatened suicide every time. Additionally, the promise of marriage was meant to calm her down as she was repeatedly self-harming.
“Tomo is a person with a kind heart and a sense of responsibility,” the statement added. “We’re sorry to our fans and to Tomo for (letting) him face this problem by himself.” The company also stated that they will be taking legal measures against the lady on Tomo’s behalf.
We hope the two sides will be able to resolve everything peacefully. After all, a toxic relationship is never worth saving. Not unless the other party is truly remorseful.
