Not news of a death, but sad news nonetheless - Tadanobu Asano and wife, pop singer Chara, have apparently split after 14-years of marriage. The two met in 1994 on the set of Shunji Iwai's film "Picnic" and are the parents of two children, 14-years-old and 9-years-old. What could have broken up a marriage that lasted so long? Well, honestly that's no one's business except Asano's and Chara's, but the rumour is going around that Asano had been involved with another woman, a rumour that many say is backed up by lyrics in a new Chara song. In her latest single "Broken Hearts" Chara sings "You say you can continue loving only me...really?" followed up by "I wish I had magic power to read your heart. Even things I don't really want to know." Whatever the reasons behind the split here's wishing both Asano and Chara strength to get through a very, very difficult time.
