But naturally he still had a few female issues in the past. Just a handful, but in a Japanese media's point of view when an idol dates a girl, we call it full blown scandals.
Oh yeah, let us see some lucky faces
Junior days Junior mate's sis
A May issue of Bubka magazine revealed a Sho Sakurai story way back 2008. Buttrflikisser  of Livejournal made a summary of it, and now I am copypasting the important parts here:
"It starts out with how the magazine found out the sho booked a popular club on Feb 17, 2008 for a wedding reception. bubka thought perhaps sho was secretly getting married (following the trend of his senpais) but when they were there, they found out that it was actually for sho's best friend he's been close since kindergarten. Sho couldn't attend because he booked a job last minute. he congraualted the couple through a VTR...He's unlike other johnnys because of his education and personality...
He doesn't get into horrible scandals and keeps his fans happy, except when he was a johnnys jr, he did sleep around....
Then the article goes into his past when he was at the top of johnnys jr. At first, he wasn't like other johnnys jr, who dressed up in expensive brands. Sho dressed like a smart boy and was too shy to get intimate with girls. Many johnnys jr. made fun of his virginity apparently, this all changed when he started dating a johnnys jr.'s older sister, who was infamous for sleeping with a lot of juniors. Sho fell hard for her, but she was a player and dumped him afterwards. Due to this, Sho changed BUT, he was still different from all other juniors because he was smart. He was super careful with everything. He wouldn't easily take pics with girls, Apparently, Sho made a rule for himself that he'd never sleep with a fan since they have big mouths."
|The girl in the picture is apparently super pretty and was lucky that she was able to take a pic with Sho.|
A FRIDAY issue way back 2008  claimed to have seen Sho Sakurai going out with Mizukawa Asami... at 4a.m, as she invited Sho to her birthday party. It may sound innocent, friendly invite, but with a showbiz insider claims they're lovers and the pics below...oh well.
2009-2010 Kobayashi Mao
Now happily married to kabuki actor Ichikawa Ebizo, Kobayashi Mao was first linked to Sho Sakurai by Arashi fangirl conspiracy theorists all because they are together as news anchors in Zero Fuji TV. Seriously guys, seriously.
2010 Horikita Maki
Sakurai Sho and Horikita Maki played as rivals in a TBS drama 'Tokujo Kabachi!!" Rumors has it that their relationship has gone beyond camera lens. The two are of the same age, and quite serious when it comes to work, naturally they go along together really well. It is not impossible their friendship could turn into something bigger.
According to a restaurant manager in Shinjuku, "I don't have the slightest idea why, but somehow Sakurai-kun and Maki-chan have been appearing frequently at a gay bar, and it's also curious that Endo Kenichi is also with them. It's just a combination that's unheard of. With bodies touching, Sakurai-kun and Maki-chan seemed like a pair of lovers. Looking over them from a distant was Kenichi-san, it's like he was their guardian."
As of the moment, nothing huge had happen between the two, hmm maybe this time they are really 'just friends'.
UPDATE 8/19/2013: Got hold of new images! The guy below is allegedly Sho and the weird thing is, the girl's supposedly Watanabe Mayu. (=_=?? Seriously, the captions only had their names and this is the first time I read about it. I couldn't find the source anymore which is annoying.
Anyway here are the pics:
Another sketchy photo is rumored to be Sakurai Sho x Kitagawa Keiko, this is for the fans!
