When Juan Gabriel died on August 28, 2016, the world mourned the loss of a great singer. For the Latino community, his death was even harder. To us, he was an icon that continues to live on in our culture. So it came to much surprise when news broke that JuanGa could possibly be alive that people lost their minds.

Juan Gabriel’s former manager, Joaquín Muñoz told the Spanish media that his client was still alive and was perfectly fine.

Muñoz told the press that the singer hasn’t been hiding or killing anyone or working with drug cartels. He said that JuanGa has been perfectly comfortable in his home and that we’d all see him really soon.

That’s right, he told reporters that we’d all see Juan Gabriel perform next month before Dec. 15.

Sounds unbelievable right? That’s because it is.

As much as we’d like to believe that the Mexican Elton John faked his death and is bored at home, thinking about doing a comeback — which is all alleged claims made by Muñoz —  JuanGa did die.

People on social media flipped out when they heard about these rumors.

After the rumors went viral, people began using the hashtag #JuanGabrielEstaVivo.

If this were true, why would he allow his ex-manager to tell everyone that he was alive? Makes no sense.

It should be known that Muñoz hadn’t been working with the singer for years. TMZ reports that his son Ivan Aguilera managed his father’s career for the last eight years of his life.

Maybe JuanGa will be back to perform as a hologram?

Would people pay to see that? Probably.

It would be like the second coming.

People should really ask themselves, “what would JuanGa do?”

The rumors about his fake death was a shock to all of us.

For a second, so many fans believed it was true, but then we thought about all those “Elvis is alive” stories.

Please do not play with our emotions!

His death affected so many families. We cannot handle this “is he or isn’t he” news.

When you’re talking about Juan Gabriel rumors, we take it all very seriously.

We’re thinking people would lose their lives if this rumor were to be true.

Imagine he were alive and this was all a scheme to make money?

JuanGa wouldn’t play us like that, would he?

People would be pissed if he lied to his fans.

But we’d probably forgive him eventually.

Either way, we’re still mourning the singer.

It looks as if his ex-manager, Muñoz is just trying to stir up drama between the family.

Let the man rest in peace.

Well, we’ll just have to wait and see what other drama comes of this.

This Mexican Surreal Artist Created Freaky Realistic Sculptures Of David Bowie, Frida Kahlo, And Juan Gabriel

The death of our favorite artists is always so heartbreaking. We were devastated when Juan Gabriel passed away, and so sad when David Bowie died. It is through their music that they continue to live on in our lives. A Mexican artist feels the same way as us, which is why he is bringing these heroes back to life one sculpture at a time.

Ruben Orozco Loza is a surrealist artist from Jalisco. He sculpts the most insane, yet realistic, art of iconic people.

That’s artist Ruben standing next to his creation of Mexican artist Jose Clemente Orozco. Here are more creations below from the University of Guadalajara graduate.

His David Bowie is so real it might haunt your dreams for the rest fo your life.

Part of the excitement is watching Ruben create these realistic depictions. It is not an easy or short process. He really takes the time to make the sculptures so realistic that it borders on creepy.

Obviously, he had to give us another moment to fawn over Frida Kahlo.

One of the most stunning moments of Ruben’s work is in the eyes of his subjects. That is what looks the most realistic, but when he inserts them into the face and fudges with them is the part that is so weird. It’s almost like he is doing surgery.

Juan Gabriel was given a second life with the artist’s take on the late singer.

In this video, you can see Ruben is working while looking at a picture of JuanGa. He is constantly looking at the real Juan Gabriel and back at his subject to make sure it looks identical.

Even Pope Francis is a subject that the sculptor couldn’t resist.

We love seeing Ruben brush the hair of the Pope. It’s so cool and realistic. Ruben really gives you a good look at what it takes to create truly stunning works of art.

Guillermo Del Toro would be so pleased with this amazing sculpture.

For his artwork of Del Toro, Ruben also becomes a hairdresser. Did you see how long his hair was in the start of the video? He has to get each piece perfect, even the beard. Stunning!

This Is What Juan Gabriel’s Family Thinks About The Conspiracy Theory That The ‘Divo’ Is Still Alive

Since the death of Juan Gabriel, rumors and conspiracy theories have taken over the Internet.

Today, his family and lawyer came forward to address this rumor started by Juan Gabriel’s ex-manager and the legal situation around the singer’s living will and testament.

The family of the late and beloved Juan Gabriel held a press conference today in Miami to discuss the rumors.

At the press conference, lawyers confirmed they are now going after the singer’s ex-manager who started all the craziness by asserting that the singer was actually alive. They threatened several legal consequences for the ex-manager, Joaquín Muñoz.

Through their lawyer, the family dispelled the rumor that ‘Divo’ lives.

Joaquín Muñoz, the ex-manager, started the shocking conspiracy theory that ‘’Divo de Juárez’ did not die on August 28, 2016.

The singer died in Los Angeles and at today’s press conference, a lawyer for the family said that the cremation was carried out in Los Angeles and that “there is no doubt that Juan Gabriel is dead.”

Also addressed at the press conference was the unresolved matter of the singer’s living will and testament.

During the meeting with the media, the family’s attorney confirmed that Iván Aguilera, son of the singer, is the universal heir.

But what all of this seems to have done is just fuel the conspiracy theory.

Parents and abuelas everywhere have long insisted there was truth to the ex-manager’s claim. WIll today’s press conference help put some of that to rest?

Like literally since his death many have been asking the question:

And according to most users on Twitter today, this press conference isn’t likely to make a difference in the minds of hardcore believers.

As one person pointed out, this issue has been consuming families since news broke that ‘Divo’ had died!

I don’t know about you but before the ex-manager made the baseless claims, I knew of families having giant arguments over his death. It was all-consuming.  

Like I’m pretty sure we all have that one tia who believes all the chisme she hears about him.

I’m pretty sure I actually heard my abuela actually tell my mom this exact same rumor. What I want to know is who is starting these things?

Some have even reported Juan Gabriel sightings around the world, including this person in Dallas.

But let’s be clear, this isn’t possible. Unfortunately, Juan Gabriel definitely died in 2016 and isn’t driving for Lyft in Texas.

While quite a few people didn’t even realize there was an entire conspiracy surrounding the singer’s tragic death.

I wish we are all this lucky to not even be aware of this bogus conspiracy theory.

Some are hoping the whole conspiracy comes to an end so that el ‘Divo de Juarez’ can finally rest in peace.

The man brought us years and years worth of incredible music and talent, it’s truly time to put this wild rumor to bed and let the man finally RIP.

While others point out the conspiracy may be true, just not the way we think:

Translation: “He is alive in our hearts.”

We couldn’t agree more. Juan Gabriel will forever live in our hearts, bodas, quineañeras, and so much more.
