Scandal sheet Bunshun has been promoting a piece about "one of the Keyakizaka members who fainted at Kouhaku." The piece came out Tuesday and claims that Mona was with a male friend in her hometown of Niigata, that they went back and forth between each other's houses and that she stayed at his house at least one night (his family's house, one supposes).
There is no proof of any of this. One fuzzy photo from behind
of Mona with a guy to the right of her and a girl to the left. This is
supposedly when they were out at a big park in Niigata looking at
cherry-blossoms in the evening, and the girl with them is supposedly
Neru (and could be). Let's see: bringing in a third wheel is not exactly what you do
you want to be with a boyfriend.
