Update: Despite filing for divorce earlier this week, Cristian tells People en Espanol that he and Valeria have reconciled and that he will ‘always lie to the press‘ about his personal life.

Originally posted August 29th: Grammy-nominated Mexican pop star Cristian Castro has split from his wife of three years, Valeria Liberman. Valeria, a practicing attorney, is currently five months pregnant with the couple’s second child.Cristian, 32, confirmed the news with People en Espanol in their upcoming October issue, saying he just wanted to be free. Although Valeria told the magazine only days before the split that Cristian was an attentive father and passionate husband, the singer has since left the family’s Miami home and moved back to his native Mexico.

The couple also have a two-year-old daughter, Simone, who will stay with Valeria in Miami. Cristian claimed he intends on keeping an apartment nearby so he can stay close to Simone.
