Eduardo Yáñez Jr. has not spoken to his famous father after their huge fallout that played in the public eye. "I haven't talked to him, we haven't broke the ice between us," he told an "El Gordo y La Flaca" reporter. "I understand that he is going through a lot of things right now ... with my grandmother that is a difficult situation."

Even though they have had a rough relationship, Yáñez Jr. has since become a father and says he has a better understanding of him. He also added that his father hasn't met his granddaughter yet, and would like to establish a relationship, but also revealed that the telenovela star doesn't have a good relationship with his daughter-in-law. 

Despite all of this, he feels that they can talk things out and reconcile to have a better relationship. "I wish you the best dad and I hope that you are able to resolve everything with my grandmother," he said. "I know that you're going through a difficult time. I wish I could be there to hug her and to tell her that I love her."

Back in November 2017, Eduardo Yáñez Jr. had a sit-down interview with "Primer Impacto" where he revealed he was sexually abused as a kid and the reason why him and his famous father had a fallout. "It too me years to get it out of my head that the act of sex is not bad and that it comes when two people like each other and is not aggressive or is about forcing someone," he said on the Univision show. Yáñez Jr. said it was his mother's housekeeper that took his innocence away. "I couldn't have a sexual act because I was scared", he confessed. 

Eduardo Yáñez Jr. revealed that he stole money from his father, which caused the rift between the two. "I took money that I shouldn't have," he said. "When he left to go do a telenovela he left an account that was meant for emergencies and my future in school. He told me not to touch it and if I needed money to go out with friends, to ask him. I simply started spending the money from that account." He ended up spending $15,000 and the telenovela star threatened him with calling immigration services to take him back to Mexico. Yáñez Jr. also says he was a victim of verbal abuse from his father every time they got into an argument, commenting on his looks and telling him he should've never been born.

Prior to the interview with "Primer Impacto," Eduardo Yáñez Jr. also talked to "Al Rojo Vivo" and gave insight to the problems with his father.

"It wasn't about money, it was a physical problem between my father and I," he told "Al Rojo Vivo." "We were both at fault, the problem was not made by itself. He said he wanted to defend me but I think that he didn't reveal the real issues because it's a problem where I don't look good and he doesn't either." After watching the interview with Rodner Figueroa, the son of the telenovela star doesn't think he's on a path to move forward with his father. "I thought he had changed and now I don't know what to think," he added. "Things happen between families and I think it's due to resentment and hate that has happened in our lives and we have hurt each other."
