The Internet Has Some Serious Questions After La Chilindrina Reveals She Was Luis Miguel’s First Love
La Chilindrina, whose real name is María Antonieta de las Nieves went on a Peruvian TV show called El Valor De La Verdad and revealed that she had dated El Sol de Mexico, aka Luis Miguel aka Luismi, back in the day during the 1980s.
During a recent talk show appearance, La Chilindra shared a photo of her with a younger Luis Miguel and she declared that she was his “first love.”
The Chavo del Ocho actress let the world know that back in the day she went on a romantic getaway with Luis Miguel in Acapulco. Attached to a lie detector test, which is the premise of the TV show, La Chilindrina had to answer a couple questions about her life.
TV host Beto Ortiz asked La Chilindrina, “Did you escape from a hotel in Acapulco to enjoy some time with Luis Miguel on a yacht?”
As soon as he asked that, La Chilindrina looked a little nervous. She paused then wondered how paparazzi would have been able to find that out. But finally, she admitted to it.
La Chilindrina went on to say that Luis Miguel was flirting with her that day on the yacht, and asked, “Hey nena, do you know who I am?” After that interaction, she boarded the yacht and spent a romantic date with him. According to her, that date was enough for her to become Luis Miguel’s first love.
As more and more Spanish-language publications began to cover the news, Twitter also went nuts with the news but remained skeptical first and foremost.
According to the math, if this in fact did take place in the 1980s, Luis Miguel would have been a pre-teen and La Chilindrina would have been in her 30s since she’s about 20 years older than him. (This is a case for the FBI).
Some wondered whether La Chilindrina was being honest or if it was simply a PR stunt.
I mean, that could be plausible…
One Twitter user pointed out that it’s not true at all due to the differences in age between La Chilindrina and Luis Miguel.
“It’s just a lie from la Chilindrina, how was she going to have a romantic encounter with Luis Miguel when he was only 12 years old and she was 32 years old?,” the Twitter user wrote.
Others thought it was pointless of media outlets to pick up these “dumb” chismes that are simply “useless.”
Folks thought that media outlets should be focusing on literally anything else but old gossip.
Some Twitter users simply didn’t k know how to react other than shocked.
I mean, how could we not have known?!
In case you didn’t know, Luis Miguel has also been romantically linked to Mariah Carey.
According to Remezcla, the two singers dated between 1999 and 2001 but it’s hard to gauge specific details about their love life because Luis Miguel has always been a very private person. But according to a book by Marc Shapiro, the relationship between Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel began in 1998 when they met in Aspen.
Word on the steer is that they were also supposed to record a duet together at some point, but things just didn’t work out. However, they seemed to make a pretty good team because since they were both superstars, they had a good understanding of what the other was dealing with, being in the spotlight and all.
And well, this might sound similar to La Chilinfrina’s account of when they allegedly first had their first date but… Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel were also about that yacht life.
Trouble in paradise began when rumors surfaced that Luis Miguel was not having it after reading the tabloids about Mariah Carey and Eric Benét. It was alleged that she and her former co-star–who was actually dating Halle Berry at the time–were more than friends. Then, around 2001, rumor had it that Luis Miguel ended his relationship with Mariah Carey because she wanted to have kids and he didn’t.
