… Says His Manager Son

If you were one of the people who thought “No puede ser” after a rumor surfaced that Juan Gabriel is not actually dead … congrats, you were 100% right.
One of Juan’s sons, Ivan Aguilera, who actually served as his dad’s manager for the last 8 years of Juan’s life, tells us the claim — made by a man named Joaquin Munoz that Juan faked his death and is alive and well — is complete BS. Ivan tells us squarely … his dad is deceased.
He held his father’s cremated remains at a memorial service back in 2016.
Munoz claimed to be Juan’s ex-manager and told a Mexican news outlet last week the Latin singer was alive at home and had faked his sudden death. That story was picked up by other outlets … and, suddenly, the buzz was Juan was going to surface by the end of 2018.
Juan’s former attorney and rep for his estate, Guillermo Pous, backs Ivan’s account … telling us Munoz never managed Juan. He was just a pal.
FWIW, we obtained Juan Gabriel’s death certificate back in 2016. Juan’s official cause of death was arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
So, sorry Juan Gabriel fans … he will NOT be in the studio recording a Tupac collab anytime soon.
