Mexican television icon Andrés García has made headlines for his unconventional love life. Despite being a leading man on Mexican television during the seventies and eighties, García’s personal life has been tumultuous. He was reportedly estranged from one of his sons, but the situation became more complicated when it was revealed that father and son had shared the same woman.
The woman in question was named Lucía Senda, whom García’s son, Leonardo, introduced to his father in 2005. The then 28-year-old Senda visited García’s home in Miami, Florida, and photographs later surfaced showing her and García in a heated moment. To make matters even more complicated, Senda had already been a participant in a reality show where she vied for the affections of the much younger Leonardo.
In 2009, four years after the explicit photos were taken, TV y Novelas captured García and Senda at their home in Coyuca de Benítez, Guerrero. Despite the apparent bond between Garcia and Senda, the relationship would ultimately sour when the actor publicly disowned his son, even going as far as to call him a “son of a bitch,” during his 80th birthday celebration.
García’s relationship with his children has always been rocky, and in a 2007 interview with TV y Novelas, he said that he did not like being a father. The actor confessed that he had become disillusioned with fatherhood and that it had left him with very negative experiences. Even then, he recognized that his children had the power to make their own choices and that he couldn’t forbid anything anymore.
Despite the scandals surrounding his personal life, García remains a beloved figure in Mexican television history. Fans continue to follow the actor’s every move, both on and off-screen. Follow us on Google News, Facebook, and Twitter to stay up-to-date with the latest news.
