Alberto Aguilera Valadez, professionally known as Juan Gabriel, was a Grammy-nominated Mexican singer-songwriter and actor. He is regarded as a pop icon and considered one of the best Mexican composers and singers.
Gabriel was born on January 7, 1950, in Parácuaro, Michoacán, Mexico, to parents Gabriel Aguilera Rodríguez and Victoria Valadez Rojas.
He was the youngest of ten siblings and spent his early years in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, where he attended the El Tribunal boarding school.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Gabriel had an estimated net worth of $30 million at the time of his death. He accumulated his fortune through a successful four-decade-long career.
The Mexican singer sold an estimated 60 million records worldwide, becoming one of Latin America's best-selling singer-songwriters. His nineteenth studio album, Recuerdos, Vol. II, which sold over eight million copies, is reportedly the best-selling album of all time in Mexico.
Besides, Gabriel wrote around 1,800 songs, including "Amor eterno", "Querida", "Hasta que te conocí", "Yo no nací para amar", "El Noa Noa", and "No tengo dinero", to name a few. His song "Querida" secured a top position on the Mexican charts for an entire year in 1984.
Gabriel never married, but had been in multiple relationships during his lifetime. He and his longtime partner Laura Salas had four children together: Iván Gabriel, Joan Gabriel, Hans Gabriel, and Jean Gabriel.
Juan had a son, Luis Alberto Aguilera, from his relationship with Guadalupe Gonzalez, who was his domestic employee. He also had a son named Joao Gabriel with another domestic employee, Consuelo Rosales.
