Gloria Trevi may have risen like the phoenix from the ashes of her controversial past, but few have forgotten the events that led to her arrest 14 years ago. Trevi will be brought to life in the biopic by actress Sofia Espinosa, who will also sing several of the star’s iconic hits in the movie. Actor Marco Perez will play the singer’s former manager and partner Sergio Andrade.
A professional soccer goalie in Mexico has been accused of belonging to a drug cartel-connected kidnapping ring whose victims included the husband of Mexican pop star Gloria Trevi. Authorities said international soccer player Omar Ortiz, nicknamed "El Gato," admitted helping the gang pick out at least two of its 20 kidnap victims, using his celebrity to get close and collect information from them. The kidnappers allegedly had ties to the Gulf Cartel and sought about one million pesos ($73,000) from each of their victims, according to authorities in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon.
