Génesis Rodríguez and Mauricio Islas: The Scandal That Shook Mexico
The scandal overshadowed the production of Telemundo, which decided to replace the gallant with another actor. Next, we’re going to tell you all about this case that got Islas to think about suicide.
Mauricio Islas experienced one of his best moments during his stay on the Telemundo network in the USA, after starring in “Prisionera” with Gabriela Spanic. The cast consisted of other well-known lionesses who made their debut in novels by Génesis Rodríguez.
Everything went well for the actor until he was accused of having had sexual relations with his partner Rodríguez, who was only 17 years old.
The complaint was made by the young actress’ father, singer José Luis Rodríguez “The Puma” who, after learning that his daughter was in a relationship with the Mexican actor, he did not hesitate to accuse the authorities.
The case was made public and Galant, 31, had to spend a few hours in jail after bailing out $ 7,000, regaining his freedom, and later facing a lawsuit that he ultimately won.
Thought about suicide
When the scandal broke out, he was married to the Venezuelan singer Patricia Villasaña, with whom he had a two-year-old daughter. She asked for a divorce.
“I was ready and thought about it [quitarse la vida]. It is a topic that you ponder because there is a time when you feel like you have lost everything until you realize you don’t have it but while the process is in progress. “Said in an interview for Venga la Alegría.
He also said that people judge before they learn the truth and are grateful that they led the trial in the North American country.
“I am very grateful that it happened to me in the United States because you are innocent there until they show you otherwise, and in Mexico, you are guilty until you prove your innocence. it is very strong because everyone is judging you and you are in the middle, for example, I decided not to speak, to live my process and the result is that I am outside, I did not lose my job “he added.
When consulted by Firsthand about whether he had a grudge against ‘El Puma’, he said this was a previous problem. “I don’t have to talk about this topic now, I have nothing to forgive, I have nothing to say.” said.
