Meet 74-year-old Asian Teruko Nakagami, she is the wife of one of Hollywood’s iconic actors, Billy Dee Williams. The couple has been married for over four decades! But there is no easy relationship specially when your husband has been long considered one of Hollywood’s sexiest leading men.
Ms. Nakagami is Williams’ third wife. The two have a daughter together, 41-year-old Hanako. Each had a child before marrying each other. He had son Corey now 54, from his marriage to Audrey Sellers. She had a daughter, Miyako, now 52, from her marriage to musician Wayne Shorter.
Back in 1993 after 21-years of marriage; it was reported Nagakami had filed for divorce; at the time a spokesman for Williams told JET “theirs is an amicable parting, not a messy Hollywood divorce.”
Despite his dashing and handsome image and reputation, Williams and his wife generally shunned Hollywood gatherings, preferring instead to spend quiet, relaxing time at their Beverly Hills home. That is why even after 42-years together there are not many snaps of them going out and about.
Teruko and Billy realized they were meant to be, they patched things up and were reunited together by 1997 till present time.
The couple was in the cover of JET magazine from the 1979 January issue, you can see the picture below.
There is not much of an intro for her famous husband, and although Teruko decided to live a life behind her husband there is no doubt she has been his soul mate thorough the years. Her New Yorker husband is best known for his role as Lando Calrissian in the original Star Wars-trilogy,William December “Billy Dee” Williams, Jr. has an estimated net worth $7.5 million; according to therichest.com.
With his soulful brown eyes, neat, thick signature moustache, great physique, and natural poise, Billy Dee Williams was a major star during the 1970s, but his acting career dates back to 1947. He appeared opposite Diana Ross in Lady Sings the Blues (1972) and who could forget him as the district attorney in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989).
Teruko’s versatile husband can now add dancing to his long list of adjectives, including actor, artist, singer, and writer. We are happy to hear he is among the new contestants on “Dancing With the Stars,” this means we might get to see more of his lovely wife and family!
