Carlos Rivera, Mara Patricia Castañeda Affair
Rumor has it that Mara Patricia Castañeda and Vicente Fernández Jr.'s divorce was due to an extramarital affair. Twitter

Last week it was announced that Mara Patricia Castañeda and Vicente Fernández Jr. had filed for divorce and were ending their marriage after 7 years together. The news broke today when Castañeda's lawyer issued an official statement confirming the separation. "As lawyer of Mrs. Mara Patricia Castañeda and with her permission, through this medium I make public the decision that was made in conjunction with Mr. Vicente Fernández Abarca in ending their matrimonial relationship that united them, which they made in peace and voluntarily with both of their best interests in mind," the statement read. "I thank you, in the name of my client, for your respect in this decision, informing you that Mrs. Mara Patricia Castañeda and Mr. Vicente Fernández Abarca have agreed not to give interviews or comment on the situation."

As both parties have refused to talk to the press about the issue, rumors are running rampant about the cause of divorce. One of the reasons was that the singer was an extremely jealous type. On gossip show "Ventaneando," it was mentioned that Fernández Jr. had cameras set up throughout the home he shared with the Televisa Espectaculos host. A neighbor of the former couple said that police raided the place and found the recording devices all around, including the bathroom. She also mentioned that Vicente had an affair with another woman. The newest rumor focused on Mara Patricia, who is said to have had an extramarital affair with singer Carlos Rivera. Mexican tabloid TVNotas is reporting that the television personality cheated on her husband with the "El Rey León" star. Rivera, who plays Simba on the Broadway production, is 29 years old while Castañeda is 49.

The source of the tabloid also mentioned that the marriage was never perfect as they both lived in different cities, Fernández in Guadalajara and Castañeda in Mexico City. Over the years this caused a rift between the two until it finally exploded and now they have divorced. Just last November 2014, the Televisa Entertainment host was talking about how solid her marriage was, a couple weeks shy of their seventh anniversary. "It's a solid marriage, it's a marriage with a lot of respect that is always in contact for security reasons and for love where we are and what time we will arrive," she said. "If I go to an event, if Vicente goes to an event, we are always in constant communication. I think that the base of a relationship of friends, work, couple, it's communication."
