Adriana Lavat announced this Wednesday through a press release that her lawyer went to a court in Miami to demand the maintenance payment that her ex Rafael Márquez, father of her two children, supposedly owes her.
“Now, after three months of non-payment without any manifestation, without explanation or support of any kind as always, after not even receiving a message of 'what do you need?' After asking for the tuition please, after asking for help, and only receiving answers once more from document signatures, I had to make this decision, "said the actress.
"My lawyer will take care without my emotional intervention, since it has not been convenient for my case, only to adhere to the laws, so that they act accordingly," he added.
A source close to Lavat told People en Español he denied the assertions that appeared in some media that it is the actress who always brings the footballer to trial. On the contrary, it is Márquez who constantly asks the courts for an adjustment in the alimony that he must give to his two older children.
“For twelve years, as some know, I have faced three lawsuits for the pension reduction that my ex-husband has requested. I did not ask for much less stipulated figures, a judge did it, first in Barcelona, Spain, then in the trial that brought me in New York and the most recent trial in Miami, which unfortunately was public, "wrote Lavat,.
"I say this because it is not easy to be in this situation as a mother, as an ex-wife, as a woman and also to be exposed to criticism, abuse in some cases of written media, people behind giving false information, and the misuse of some microphones and screen. Just twelve months ago, once again my ex-husband requested a downward adjustment and I accessed her figures adjusting to avoid another trial and to be able to continue with my life,”she added.
This new chapter in the disputes with Lavat comes at a time when the former defense of FC Barcelona is on a blacklist of the United States Treasury department accused of being a drug trafficker. The accusation, which he has repeatedly denied, caused Mexican authorities to freeze his accounts, although a court returned control of the funds to him last September.
