Gloria Trevi returns to the eye of the hurricane with a new complaint of child abuse

The Mexican singer Gloria Trevi and the producer Sergio Andrade once again face a new lawsuit for abuse and exploitation of two underage girls in the 1990s, in Los Angeles.

According to the demand obtained by the American media The Rolling Stone, nIf the name of Trevi, nor that of Andrade appear literally in the document, but due to the details presented by the plaintiffs and the chronology of their narratives, it makes it clear that they are the two defendants.

The two victims allege that they were 13 and 15 years old when the “Pelo suelto” singer approached them to propose that they join a supposedly elite musical training program run by Andrade and by then, both Trevi and Andrade were already enjoying fame and international recognition.

In their description, the plaintiffs state that Trevi prepared and manipulated them on various occasions to become “sex slaves” of the producer and that much of the abuse took place in Los Angeles County.

For their part, both describe that the events they experienced separately with Andrade were physical and sexual assaults, isolation from their family, and constant abuse.

“(Trevi and Andrade) used their role, status and power as a well-known and successful Mexican pop star and famous producer to gain access, groom, manipulate and exploit (the victims) and force sexual contact with them during a course of years,” the complaint alleges, according to the music magazine.

The document was filed Dec. 30 under California’s Child Victims Law, which allows survivors of child sexual abuse to file civil cases and which temporarily suspended the statute of limitations on older child sexual abuse claims.

In January 2000, Trevi, his former representative Sergio Andrade and María Raquenel Portillo, known as “Mary Boquitas”, were arrested in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) on charges of kidnapping, rape and corruption of minors.

Trevi spent three years in prison and was extradited to Mexico, where she was acquitted and released in September 2004. after a judge ruled that there was insufficient evidence to support the charges of rape, kidnapping and corruption of minors brought against him.

However, although Andrade was convicted of rape, kidnapping and corruption of minors, he only spent one more year behind bars.

The scandal around what was then called the “Trevi-Andrade clan” began to come to light when the singer Aline Hernández published the book “La Gloria por el infierno” (1998).

Still no response from Trevi to the new accusationsthe singer has always declared her innocenceand since his release he has successfully resumed his career and has dedicated himself to trying to clear his name.
