Yuji Ayabe “Meet & Greets” Britney Spears and Ringo Starr
Yuji Ayabe(39), who recently moved to New York to follow his dream of becoming a Hollywood actor posted his photo with Britney Spears on October 27th, 2017 and another photo with Ringo Starr on October 25th, 2017. It seems that Ayabe went to Britney Spears’ show and Ringo Starr’s show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and he took pictures with them after the show.
This was reported by many Japanese media outlets such as Sports Hochi, Livedoor News, ect.
Many Japanese people were amazed to see Ayabe with American super stars and said that he found success even though only a short period of time had passed since he arrived in the US, but some people noticed that these were “Meet & Greets” photos, which is a paid photo session, criticised him for paying for publicity.
