Rauw called Rosalía the “truest love story” God had allowed him to live while addressing infidelity rumors

One the rumors circling the internet after their breakup was that Rauw had cheated on the “Hentai” singer with Colombian model Valeria Duque.

However, the “Playa Saturno” artist didn’t let these spread, shutting them down with a heartfelt message toward his fans on Instagram Stories.

“I never found myself in the position of even thinking that I would have to make public statements on this private matter for me,” he wrote. “Yes, a few months ago Rosi and I ended our engagement. There are thousands of problems that can cause a breakup, but in our case it was not due to third parties or infidelity.”

Adding, “During this time that I am taking to assimilate all this, erroneous public allegations have arisen, and out of respect for her, our families and everything we’ve lived through, I could not remain silent and continue watching how they try to destroy the truest love story God has allowed me to live.”

“With nothing else to add, to my fans, I love you very much, thanks for being here.”
