The legendary Mexican singer, Juan Gabriel, passed away over two years ago, devastating the Latinx music culture.
Juan Gabriel's former manager has spread some shocking rumors about the late superstar. During an interview on Televisa's Intrusos program, Juan Munoz claimed that the 'Querida' singer faked his death and is, in fact, alive and well.
“He faked his death… He’s at home; he’s well, comfortable and everything,” Muñoz told reporters earlier this week, in remarks reported by Remezcla.
“Next month everyone will know. He’s preparing everything so that after the 15th [of December] he can appear in public. He’s bored with the way [his life] is; the situation he’s living in is a horrible situation that I don’t wish upon anyone,” he continued.
Juan Gabriel's former manager claims he saw the singer on July 8th at a clinic, where he was being treated for a foot infection caused by diabetes.
Social media allowed the rumor to spread quickly, garnering different reactions to the claim:
TMZ went on to report that the rumors were confirmed fake by Juan Gabriel's son and the singer's estate.
The rumor really excited many since Juan Gabriel is one of Mexico's best-know singers. He released more than 1,5000 songs and was nominated for a Grammy six times. He is a true legend!
