Real Housewives Star’s Boyfriend Implicated in Shohei Ohtani’s Former Interpreter’s Criminal Case

In a surprising turn of events, Ryan Boyajian, known for his appearance on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” has been linked to the criminal case involving Ippei Mizuhara, the former interpreter of Shohei Ohtani. According to ESPN, Boyajian acted as a middle man between Mizuhara and alleged illegal bookmaker Mathew Bowyer.

Unnamed sources cited by ESPN claim that Boyajian is referred to as “Associate 1” in the federal complaint against Mizuhara. The complaint alleges that Mizuhara was instructed to make wire payments to a bank account in Boyajian’s name to settle his gambling debts. This account, as reported by ESPN, has been used by Bowyer and Boyajian for real estate projects.

The complaint further reveals that between February 2022 and October 2023, the mentioned account received wire payments totaling at least $15 million from Shohei Ohtani’s account. Mizuhara, without Ohtani’s knowledge, changed the contact information associated with Ohtani’s bank account to his own, allowing him to make the payments.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced on Wednesday that Mizuhara has agreed to plead guilty to stealing over $17 million from Ohtani to cover his gambling debts. Ohtani himself was cleared of any wrongdoing by federal authorities last month.

Ryan Boyajian’s attorney, Steven Katzman, declined to comment on the matter, citing the ongoing investigation and his client’s cooperation. Katzman did state that Boyajian is not involved in bookmaking or sub-bookmaking activities. Multiple sources have confirmed that Boyajian has been granted immunity in exchange for his testimony.

It is important to note that Mathew Bowyer, the alleged illegal bookmaker, has not been named in the complaint against Mizuhara and has not faced any charges.

In unrelated news, Jennifer Pedranti, Boyajian’s girlfriend and fellow cast member of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” recently announced their engagement to People magazine.
