Was he a minor? Thalía and her controversial romance with Alfredo Díaz Ordaz

After confirmation of Sasha Sokol about the abuse he suffered with Luis de Llano, there were those who speculated if Thalia lived the same with Alfredthe son of the former Mexican president Gustavo Diaz Ordaz.

She was not even 20 and he was already around 40 years old. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, his romance was out in the open; he produced the singer’s first two albums and they were about to get married.

On whether there was any kind of abuse, Laura Zapata responded to the press this week, and it was very clear: “Thalía was not a girl, Thalía I think she was 17 or 18 years old and she was very much in love with Alfredo. It was when she went to Los Angeles and he produced a record for her but I saw her madly in love with Alfredo”.

“I was 18 years old, no, I was not a girl, my mom was there and they fell in love and what can you do. There was no ‘oops, this man is forcing me to sleep with him to make the album’, no, he was already making the album and they fell in love, no way, what can I tell you, “said Thalía’s sister.


It was said that the Ordaz family did not love Thalía, and despite that, they had planned their wedding. However, death was the only thing that could separate them. Alfredo died in December 1993 from Hepatitis C.

Thalía was in the middle of recording the telenovela ‘marimar’ when they told him about the loss of his great love.

In an interview with Verónica Castro, Thalía recalled those sad moments: “I was petrified, in shock, and the first thing I did was run. I sat under a tree and started crying and I remember thinking ‘I hope you’re okay wherever you are’; and at that moment the tree, a wind came, it began to move with the wind and flowers fell, so he and I had a great complicity with the flowers, so that was like a relief of ‘I’m fine, keep going, keep going doing your things’, my soul returned to my body. Those tears in that novel were very real. There are situations in your life that your escape somehow is to get them out through your character.
