In a recent confessional interview, Yuri, the celebrated Mexican singer and actress, divulged details about her turbulent past marked by substance abuse, rampant romantic relationships, and serious health conditions. Speaking to Nayo Escobar, Yuri painted a vivid picture of her life during her artistic zenith in the 80s and 90s, a time defined by heavy drinking, smoking, and an uncontrolled love life.
Struggles with Health Issues
Yuri's unrestrained lifestyle beginning at 16 had severe repercussions on her health. She was diagnosed with throat tumors that jeopardized her career in singing, and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The actress opened up about her brush with cervical cancer, a near-fatal encounter she survived. However, she attributed her survival more to divine intervention than to any caution exercised during her sexual encounters.
Overcoming Addiction and Temptation
While dismissing the idea of being a nymphomaniac, Yuri confessed that she might have been categorized as one if not for her newfound faith in God. She compared her struggle to overcome her 'addicted' flesh to the experiences of drug addicts or alcoholics. Her spirituality played a crucial role in helping her conquer this addiction.
Marriage and Fidelity
Yuri, who has been married to Rodrigo Espinoza for nearly three decades, also discussed her ongoing battles with temptation. She cited instances of resisting advances from attractive men and ex-partners, which tested her commitment to her husband. In a humorous anecdote, she narrated an encounter at Televisa where she faced three exes, seemingly placed by 'the devil'. This incident led her to reaffirm her commitment to her husband and vow never to be left alone again, acknowledging her vulnerabilities.
