Pablo Aguilera, younger brother of popular singer Juan Gabriel, said in an interview that the singer had not written all the hits that led him to be one of the most transcendent figures in music in Mexico.
In an interview done for the program Suelta la Sopa , Pablo said that some of the songs registered under the name of Juan Gabriel were not actually made by “el Divo de Juárez”, but were actually made by his brother José Guadalupe, who he dedicated himself to composing some songs and worked specifically for his brother.
Alberto Valadez Aguilera died on August 28, 2016, of a myocardial infarction. At that time he was in the middle of his “Mexico is everything” tour.
According to Pablo Aguilera, who is the only one of Juan Gabriel's siblings still alive, his brother Guadalupe never complained to Juan Gabriel or was bothered by the fact that he recorded the songs he made and that, in some cases, “Lupe “He was going directly to record the songs he made under his brother's name . This is what he said in the interview:
I have never been a singer, or I gave myself to seek fame, to be interesting to the world. No, my world was different (…) So I said, if Alberto couldn't sing them to me, because I really did think to tell him. I did not tell him that I composed because I did not have much time to hear those things

Pablo also revealed another secret, he himself is dedicated to writing songs, which he has bequeathed and allowed Juan Pedro Cruz, impersonator of Juan Gabriel, to interpret the songs he has worked on for many years. Pablo Aguilera said that in his entire life he has created around 80 songs, which he never showed Juan Gabriel.
And it is that according to Pablo Aguilera said, his brother never knew that he was dedicated to the creation of songs, something that leaves him a complicated void since he also wanted the mythical figure of his brother to interpret the material that he had so hard to do.
Unfortunately for Pablo Aguilera, the family conflicts have not been far from affecting him since his nephew, Iván Salas, the only heir of Juan Gabriel, has claimed the house where he lives and that he had originally given him “El Divo de Juárez ” , even before Iván was born.
Pablo had already come into conflict with his nephew before when he complained about a spa and a hotel that he managed and which were under the name Alberto Aguilera.
