    TOKYO – The mother of Japanese pop singer Hikaru Utada has been found dead after plunging from a 13th storey apartment in an apparent suicide, reports said Thursday.

    Police believe Keiko Fuji, 62, jumped to her death from the Tokyo home she shared with a man in his 30s, Jiji Press said, adding foul play was not suspected.

    Fuji was well-known in Japan during the 1960s and 1970s for her “enka” — a popular folk singing style.

    Her daughter, whose 1999 debut album “First Love” is one of Japan’s biggest-ever sellers, has had commercial success in Taiwan, the Philippines and Thailand, as well as Britain, France, Germany and North America.
