According to FRIDAY, he is dating a woman 12 years younger than him.

July 2011, in Nakai's Kurobara,
Inagaki said "I've never met a woman whom I think I want to marry with"

He came to Nakai's show to promote his drama.
When he was asked about marriage, he said this.

October 2011, in "Tamori-Nakai Tebura de ii noni" Kanno said "It's men's fault!"


When she came to this show to promote her drama, the topic was about romance, she said "Fight happens because of men's fault". However some opinions also say, maybe she was just trying to make the atmosphere lively.

June 2012, Another Reconciliation News


It was reported that alot of witnesses saw Goro and Miho having a big fight in the middle of the road at Ginza about 2 weeks ago.

Here are the witnesses' comments:

"I was shocked. It was on the Yanagi street at Ginza at night. They were walking in front of us while arguing. They suddenly stopped in front of a certain building and started quarelling. I immediately found out the guy is Inagaki Goro of SMAP from his hairstyle. The woman's face looked red and wet... she was mumbling while crying, but she didn't speak clearly so I didn't know what she said. But from her eyes, there's no mistake that she was Kanno Miho. I just remember, ahh... weren't these two use to go out in the past?"

"When people started staring at them looking like 'Huh? Aren't they Kanno and Goro?', Goro started saying 'Mazui yo, mazui yo (this is bad)', he was trying to find a place far from people's stare but Kanno said, "Kankeinai!(it has nothing to do with it!)".

"Kanno kept crying out loud ignoring people's stare. Inagaki tried to bring her inside the building, but when he grabbed her hand, Kanno told him off "Go away! Leave me alone!". It looked like a middle-aged married couple's fight."

Other comments:
"I saw them together at a Meijijingu Gaien golf course in early May. They didn't use any disguise (glasses/hats) at all and were wearing casual clothes. They entered the golf course holding hands looking chummy."


Hmm... I wonder if Goro will be asked about this again during his musical press conference in December XD

I think if he is not allowed to get married or doesn't want to, Miho should move on and find someone who can marry and start a family.
