That’s right, folks.
For several years now, former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman has been living the good life in Japan. The dude loves the country, and why shouldn’t he. Japan’s the bomb.
Now, reports claim Marty’s married a native.
He is rumored to have gotten hitched to Hiyori Okuda, the 41-year-old Japanese cellist who performed on the song “Aitakatta” from his 2011 album Tokyo Jukebox 2.
It seems he started dating Okuda after meeting her on a TV show in 2009 and told some of his friends at his 50th birthday party early last month that he and his girlfriend were about to tie the knot.
Since December 28, the Japanese media started spotting a wedding ring on Marty’s finger, leading to speculation that the ceremony took place several days earlier.
Imagine Marty’s actually, like, someone the paparazzi give a shit about over in Japan. Crazy!
