. Unfortunately, they quickly divorced.
She keeps her twitter
updated, in English no less (and increasingly good English). Later, she added an English-language Facebook page

with Patrick Macias, introducing Japanese sub-culture to English speakers. Which means, yes, she spoke English the majority of time (had to speak Japanese to deal with some natives).
