Popular actress Norika Fujiwara, 37, and her husband, Tomonori Jinnai, 35, plan to divorce soon, her office indicated Thursday.

The comments followed several reports that the couple, who married in February 2007 as 2,000 fans gathered outside their wedding venue, might go their separate ways.

Jinnai, a comedian, told a TV program Thursday morning, “We are keeping our distance so that things will move in the right direction.”
