Rafael Amaya 'El Señor De Los Cielos' Cocaine Overdose
Rumor has it that what sent the "El Señor De Los Cielos" star into downward spiral was a heartbreak. Telemundo

The star of Telemundo's narco-series "El Señor De Los Cielos" was on the borderline of death last week when he was rushed to the hospital after substance abuse. Now a new report from a Mexican tabloid source says that what sent Rafael Amaya into this downward spiral was that he still can't get over his break up from Angélica Celaya. Amaya's heart was broken when the wedding to Celaya was broken off after an alleged affair on her part. Celaya had been working on the NBC series "Constantine" in the U.S. while Amaya was in México working on the third season of the Telemundo series. Seems like the distance took a toll on the relationship and Angélica allegedly cozied up with co-star Matt Ryan who plays Constantine on the show based on DC comics characters.

Rafael Amaya had a near death experience last week when he was rushed to the hospital after overdosing on cocaine. The 38-year-old actor was admitted to Hospital Español in the City of México on October 27 at 4 in the morning. The actor who plays the drug lord Aurelio Casillas had tachycardia (fast heart rate) symptoms and drug intoxication. Due to his state, he was rushed to intensive care unit and taken care of in a private, restricted area of the hospital. It was until 2pm of that same day that Rafael reacted to the treatment and woke up. He started eating two hours later and was able to start walking. Sources claim that fame has gotten to his head and he has been treating staff on the show extremely bad. Not only that, but he arrives incredibly late to his shoots. Things got so severe at one point that he was fined $300,000 Mexican pesos (about US$18,000) for not arriving on schedule for his callings.

Telemundo, who produces the successful series did not comment on the allegations around Rafael Amaya's life, but did say that production of the series is going according to schedule. "We don't make comments on rumors about the personal life of our employees or actors," read the statement. "After being out last week, we are happy to know that Rafael is fine and took some well deserved vacation days after 11 months of filming non-stop. The production of Season 4 of 'El Señor De Los Cielos' is almost done and will continue as it was originally. This series has been a hit and a big part of that is due to Rafael's hard work and dedication. He is a great profession and a dear member of the Telemundo family."
