(CNN Spanish) -

 After almost 19 years of her release and acquittal, Gloria Trevi is once again named in a lawsuit for two cases of alleged child abuse.

The lawsuit, filed on December 30, 2022 in Los Angeles County Superior Court, California, alleges that the singer allegedly participated in a scheme to prepare two girls who would later suffer sexual abuse.

The lawsuit, which does not explicitly name Gloria Trevi, refers to the singer as a "Mexican pop star" and names two of her albums, "Tu ángel de la guarda" and "Me siento tan sola."

According to a lawsuit document obtained by CNN, the plaintiffs were between the ages of 13 and 15 at the time of the alleged acts of sexual and physical abuse they suffered.

They add that Trevi, together with his producer, “used their role, status, and power as a well-known and successful Mexican pop star and famous producer to gain access to them, groom them, manipulate them, exploit them, and force them to have sexual contact with them throughout the years.” over the years."


The accusation, which does not name Sergio Andrade directly, indicates that the defendant "is an adult male" and "was one of the most successful music producers in Mexico."

The lawsuit also indicates that the defendant produced an album by Trevi that was released in 1994. It is the album "Más turbada que nunca", which according to the Discog page, Andrade was its producer.

Andrade was also the producer of the two records that the lawsuit mentions as contemporaneous to the time in which the alleged events allegedly occurred, between 1990 and 1992.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County because some of the alleged acts were allegedly perpetrated in the state of California, the document indicates.

Gloria Trevi responded to the allegations early Friday morning through a post on Instagram.

The singer herself said that she is being unfairly accused of crimes that she did not commit.

"Being a victim of physical and sexual abuse is the worst thing that can happen to a human being, I say it and I know it as a survivor, my feelings are with anyone who has been a victim of any type of abuse, but I will not remain silent while they unjustly accuse me of crimes I did not commit;

It is very painful for me and my family to see the false accusations made against me resurface more than 25 years ago and that have already been tried in various courts and in all instances I was completely acquitted", says the singer, referring to her acquittal in 2004 by a court in Chihuahua.

CNN contacted the Los Angeles County Superior Court to find out if the defendants have legal representation and, at the moment, says the court, there is no information in this regard.

CNN also tried to locate a contact or legal representation for Andrade, but was unsuccessful in the search.

Andrade's only online presence is his YouTube channel, which indicates that the last video the producer shared was in 2017.

The Twitter account related to the producer and that appears on Andrade's YouTube account was deleted, according to the social network.

Andrade's last known whereabouts are in Mexico, where he lived, but according to the Mexican press it cannot be determined if he still lives there.

What are they accusing Gloria Trevi of?

The lawsuit accuses Gloria Trevi of allegedly gaining the trust of the two plaintiffs by befriending them and then goading them into complying with the requests of their then-producer.  

The lawsuit details an alleged conversation between Trevi and one of the plaintiffs indicating that she should do what Trevi's producer told her to continue working in the Mexican star's group of dancers.

“I don't want you to leave, you have to go talk to [the producer], do whatever it takes, whatever he asks of you, please do it, because I want you to stay.

Imagine if you leave, you'll lose this opportunity and now we're such good friends, I don't want to lose you, I don't want to lose you,” the lawsuit states.

The producer allegedly asked the plaintiff, then 16, to have sex with him.

The second applicant presents testimony similar to that of the first applicant, where Trevi allegedly gained her trust through a friendship.

This she was 13 years old at the time of contact with Trevi and his team.

The lawsuit states that the alleged sexual abuse began when the plaintiff was 14 years old.

According to the document, the second plaintiff married Trevi's producer, in a maneuver that the man carried out in order not to return custody of the then-minor to her mother.

The events described in the lawsuit occurred between 1989 and 2000.

The Andrade-Trevi plot

Gloria Trevi was previously accused of kidnapping and corruption of minors.

In 1999, the Chihuahua Attorney General's Office, in Mexico, issued an arrest warrant against Gloria Trevi, Sergio Andrade and Mary Boquitas.

The three were arrested in Brazil on January 13, 2000.

Trevi served part of his sentence between Brazil and Mexico.

The singer spent 4 years, 8 months and 8 days behind bars.

She was acquitted in 2004 by a Chihuahua judge.

In an interview with CNN in 2004, Trevi said that being imprisoned "humanly was an injustice and thank God in the end at least, through the laws there in Mexico there was an acknowledgment of the mistake that was made."

"During those years they robbed me but I didn't let myself be robbed of the most important thing, which was being able to compose a song, being able to dream, being able to travel with your imagination."

In the interview, carried out weeks after her release and as part of the promotion of her album "How the universe is born", Trevi affirms that the stories that landed her in prison were manipulated.

"I want it to be very clear, I never hurt anyone and the stories that were told were very manipulated, very exaggerated and full of lies," said the singer.

In 2018, during the televised ceremony of the Latin American Music Awards, Trevi spoke about this stage of his life.

“Four years, eight months and eight days it took the Mexican justice to recognize my innocence and I was a smoke screen for the dead of Juárez.

Because that way, sometimes, by condemning a woman, they hide the crimes against others," said the singer.

“My abuser today is free and he not only hurt me but many other young women.

And he most likely still does.

They say that a lie after repeating it so much becomes true, but no... I was not his accomplice, I was 15 years old with a 12-year-old mentality, when I met the great producer who immediately sought to become a mirage of love and posed as me. The only opportunity to achieve my dreams”, says Trevi about the moment he met Sergio Andrade.

"I was 15 years old when I began to live with manipulation, beatings, shouting, abuse, punishment, and there were 17 years of humiliation," added the singer.

Andrade, who in 2005 pleaded not guilty to the accusations, was convicted and served a sentence of 7 years and 10 months.

The producer was acquitted in 2007 by a judge in Chihuahua, Mexico, on charges of kidnapping, aggravated rape, and corruption of minors.
