On May 24, 2007, Fujimoto was rumoured to be in the latest edition of the Japanese gossip magazine Friday —the same magazine responsible for the cancellation of Ai Kago‘s contract— pictured walking with Shōji Tomoharu, a member of the comedy duo Shinagawa Shōji. Friday explains that they had a two-hour dinner together, drove to Fujimoto’s apartment, then went to the sauna, returning to Shouji’s apartment just after midnight. It soon became apparent that she was to be involved in a scandal that would jeopardize her position in Morning Musume. After seeing the article, Up-Front Agency had no intention to deal with the situation since there was no proof of them dating.
On the May 26, 2007 edition of Young Town Doyōbi (a radio show with Ai Takahashi, Fujimoto and Sanma Akashiya), she confirmed that the pictures were of her, and that she had been going out with Shōji Tomoharu. She also mentioned that she was going to talk to the head of Up-Front Agnecy, Naoki Yamazaki about the situation.
