Pablo Aguilera’s private life

Little is known about the personal life of one of Juan Gabriel’s ten brothers. He kept away from the cameras, but with time he began to reveal certain personal information, as well as the experiences he had with his successful brother, who dedicated his life to music.

In several interviews, the brother of the singer from Parácuaro, Michoacán, said he also dedicated part of his life to composing music. However, he decided to keep his talent and never reveal it to his brother “Juanga”; in addition, in these talks for various media, he shared how his family lived together, as well as anecdotes never before revealed.

I did think of telling him -Juan Gabriel- that I composed, but I never told him because he didn’t have time to listen to those things. He never knew them -his songs-; he knew Lupe’s, my brother’s, because he did write for him,” she told the program Suelta la Sopa in 2020.

The legal battle against Iván Aguilera for a property in Michoacán

It should be noted that Pablo Aguilera pointed out on multiple occasions that his brother, known for songs such as “Te Lo Pido Por Favor” or “Hasta Que Te Conocí,” inherited him still alive the property located in Parácuaro, Michoacán, where they were both born; despite this, Juan Gabriel’s brother faced a legal battle with his nephew Iván Aguilera.

It was in 2016 when the nephew and universal heir of the famous singer was involved in a complex scenario next to his uncle Pablo due to the fact that they disputed over this family property; however, the singer-songwriter’s brother won the case and decided to live in this ranch until the end of his days.

After four years of legal battle, it was determined that the property was part of Juan Gabriel’s inheritance, so he asked his uncle to vacate it in 2021, although he never left.

Pablo Aguilera did not know why his nephew stripped him of his brother’s gift: “The day they tell me it has to be handed over, well, it has to be handed over. I am here because Alberto did this, and I made it in the little house where I am, just for that reason, but then God will say. We hope this doesn’t happen, but it has to happen anyway,” he told Despierta América.

How many siblings did Juan Gabriel have?
