In May 2015, it was revealed that Sergio Mayer was suing José José, because he collected digital royalties from the singer's songs, along with Monique, daughter of the first marriage of Sara Salazar, last wife of the Prince of the Song.. Although, at that time he accepted that a business agreement existed because “we have always tried to see for him; I have always worried about him and he knows it”, he denied being sued.
After his death, it was revealed that Mayer has been receiving the corresponding remuneration for the song passes on YouTube for five years and was questioned about it.
"I have no interest in answering that kind of thing. I am so busy with other things as to waste time on that, "Mayer warned the Mexican television program Ventaneando (TV Azteca). "Let him rest [José José]; things are going very well. I don't understand why now divert attention with such an absurd and stupid subject when everything is going so well.”
When asked directly if he denied that he performed such a cbro, he completely refused to speak about it.
"I don't have to clarify absolutely anything," he added. "It seems absurd to me to be touching on that topic."
The also president of the Culture Commission in the Chamber of Deputies if he wanted to talk about the tributes of José José he will receive in Mexico after his death last weekend.
"The possibility is being seen, even, of bringing forward the transfer [of José José's body] and it may be that by Sunday he may be here, Monday, maximum," he explained. “Regarding the tributes, it has grown so much and everyone has been involved, because all of Mexico wants to participate. Apparently, there is the possibility that the tribute will be made even in the Zocalo”.
