MIAMI - Spanish super star Rosalía is once again making news, but this time it's not because of her music even though her fans are eagerly anticipating a new song in the coming weeks. Over the weekend, Motomami caused a stir on social media with the most daring look of her career: a very see through lace blouse, which she wore without a bra in Los Angeles.

The furor continued with statements from trans actress Hunter Schafer, who told GQ magazine about a five-month romantic relationship she had with Rosalía.

"I have beautiful friendships with people I've had romantic relationships with." Rosalía is "like family, no matter what," Schafer explained. The actress aimed to put to rest rumors that had been swirling since photos of the two were published, showing them walking through Los Angeles and shopping for furniture.

"There's been a lot of speculation for a long time," Hunter admitted. "Part of us wants to put an end to all this, and another part says, 'But why, if it's nobody's business!'". But in the end, "it's something I'm happy to share. And I think she feels the same way."

The relationship is known to have lasted five months and took place in 2019. Around the same time or shortly thereafter, Rosalía began her romance with Puerto Rican artist Rauw Alejandro, whom she was engaged and whose relationship ended almost a year ago.

Confirmed Rumors

Speculations of a relationship between Rosalía and Hunter Schafer surfaced in 2019. In September of that year they attended Paris Fashion Week together, where the Spanish singer dedicated her award to her "friend." "I love you," she said.

Four years later, the rumors of a relationship were revived by Rosalía's single "Tuya," which many of her fans believe is dedicated to Schafer.

"Just tonight, I am yours, yours. Just tonight, you are mine. You want to see me naked, uh a. I want you under 'e my belly button, yeah," goes one of the verses in which the Catalan artist refers to a love story with a woman.

The fans wondered then, and are convinced now, that this song caused the riff between the Spanish artist and her then fiancée. If the internet detectives are correct, Rauw Alejandro and Rosalía broke up soon after she returned from Japan, where she shot the video for "Tuya."

Who is Hunter Schafer

Hunter Schafer rose to fame after playing the trans teenager Jules in the HBO series Euphoria. In addition to her film career (The Hunger Games: A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes), she has worked as a model for many luxury fashion brands such as Dior, Miu Miu, and Rick Owens. She has also starred in advertising campaigns for Prada and been the face of the fragrance Angel by Mugler.

Schafer was discovered in her last years of high school when she participated in a digital campaign for Marc Jacobs through a social media casting. At 18, she moved to New York and within a year she had walked for nearly all the major brands. "It all happened very fast, one day I was doing a photo shoot and the next I was on the runway, I had to learn how everything worked quickly," she explained in an interview with S Moda. Just as she was considering enrolling at Saint Martins to become a designer, her agency persuaded her to audition for a series looking for trans actresses: "I didn't even know it was Euphoria. I had never even considered acting," she said.

The actress is known for her commitment to the rights of the LGBTI community. In 2021, Time included her in its list of "100 emerging leaders shaping the future." More recently, on February 26, she was arrested in New York, along with 32 other protesters, during a protest in defense of the Palestinian people. At this demonstration, organized by Jewish Voice for Peace, participants displayed a banner with a message for the U.S. government: "Stop sending weapons for genocide."
