Maribel Guardia’s plea for privacy after losing son Julián Figueroa to heart attack

Maribel Guardia mourns her 27-year-old son's passing, revealing cause of death and private funeral plans while asking for respect during this difficult time.

On Monday morning, April 10, Maribel Guardia issued a statement confirming the unfortunate death of her only son Julián Figueroa. In the text, the actress and singer revealed how her son died and offered details about the funeral rites, which will be carried out privately. The 63-year-old singer also asked for respect in this unfortunate moment she is going through.

“Dear friends: I am sorry to have to communicate the departure of my beloved son Julián Figueroa, who unfortunately passed away. He was found unconscious tonight in his room while I was at the theater. They called 911, and when the ambulance and police arrived, they found him lifeless, without any trace of violence. The medical report indicates that he died of acute myocardial infarction and ventricular fibrillation,” Maribel Guardia stated.

“I ask for understanding for the deep pain we are going through, I would like to talk to all the people trying to communicate, but I don’t have the strength to do it yet. I beg, respectfully, everyone, for our privacy and the painful moment we are going through. His funeral honors will be held privately, next to the people closest to him and who loved him the most,” continued the singer.

“I thank all the messages of support and love that you have been sending me, but now I don’t have the soul to answer anyone; I hope to be able to do it another time. Thank you all for your understanding,” she ended her text, accompanied by a photograph of Julián Figueroa, who was just about to turn 28.

On a personal level, Julián Figueroa has been married since 2017 to Veracruz model Imelda Garza-Tuñón with whom he procreated his only son José Julián, who is currently five years old.

In the last publication that Julián Figueroa made on his social networks, the young composer remembered his late father, Joan Sebastian, whom he confessed to missing much more than one might think, and expressed his desire to be able to hug him.

“To hell with the Grammys, with the fame and the money, because my only wish is to hug you… one more time. I love you, Dad, and if it hurts me, your death is because your life was so precious to me, was Julian Figueroa’s text.
