Kei Komuro, Princess Mako’s longtime suitor whose prospective engagement to her is currently up in the air, claimed in a statement Tuesday that financial troubles blocking the way to his marriage to the princess had already been resolved.

In the statement, Komuro claimed that his mother’s ex-fiance agreed that Komuro’s family does not need to repay ¥4 million he spent on them before his engagement ended. But later in the day, the ex-fiance, whose name is being withheld, told the Asahi Shimbun that he still expects the sum to be returned, saying he had not intended to give the money to the family.
