Lili Estefan has been hit harder than Hurricane Irma.
The model and TV host revealed on September 14 that she was ending her marriage with her businessman husband, Lorenzo Luaces.
The 50-year-old Cuban native said, Nuevo Herald, that she has begun a process of separation with her husband, with whom she spent 28 years of her life.
She further added that the decision wasn’t easy for her, but it was required the most for the well-being of her kids.
“Although it’s very painful, I definitely feel better for having done it, and am always thinking of the well-being of my two children, the thing I treasure most from our relationship.”
With her husband, she shares two children, son Lorenzo Jr. (born 1999) and daughter Lina Teresa (born 2002).
She also stated that it’s the second biggest pain she has experienced in her life after her mother’s death.
Lili announced that she took the tough decision after she found that her husband was cheating on her with another woman.
Raul De Molina, who learned of the news a day before Lili announced publicly, said that he couldn’t sleep well worrying about his co-host.
Lili and Raul have been co-hosting Univision’s ‘El Gordo y la Flaca’ since 1998.
Lili and Lorenzo were considered as one of the enduring couples in the Miami showbiz landscape.
