Japanese Princess Mako's boyfriend graduates from U.S. law school

Kyodo -- May 24
Kei Komuro, the boyfriend of Princess Mako of Japan, has graduated from Fordham University's law school in New York, a person familiar with the matter said Monday.

Komuro, who previously worked at a Tokyo law firm as a paralegal, is planning to take New York state's bar examination in July, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

He started studying at the law school in August 2018 after his planned marriage with the niece of Emperor Naruhito was abruptly delayed following a string of reports that his mother was in a dispute over 4 million yen ($36,700) that her former fiance claimed she owed him.

Komuro, 29, released a statement in April seeking to correct what he said were misunderstandings by the public about his mother's money dispute and said his wish to marry the 29-year-old princess has not changed.
