Strong declarations. In a recent interview with a well-known media, the cumbia singer Yolanda Medina revealed an unknown aspect of his life. In a candid story, the artist shared her personal experience, detailing the adversities she faced when she was paraplegic at 13 years of age.
The leader of ‘Alma Bella’ shared that she suffered a fall from the third floor, which led her to spend almost two years in a wheelchair. According to her story, the injury was serious and she required a hip transplant due to the complexity of her case, leaving her with a huge scar that she still carries with her to this day.
“At the age of thirteen I fell from the third floor, I was in a wheelchair for two years. I had to wait two years to have a hip transplant, I have a super large scar because both of my legs were broken and a deviation in the spine because it left me paralyzed. “It hit me a lot, I thought I wasn’t going to walk,” the singer told Trome.
With the passage of time, the national artist has managed to overcome her accident. Recently, she decided to face her past when she saw a video on social media that showed the scars on her legs, a result of her fall. Although it initially bothered her, she now sees it as a “war wound” and it no longer affects her. Medina has been encouraged to open her ‘box of memories’ about the accident, showing notable emotional strength.
“They said it was silicone,” he added. “It is a scar that I will feel proud of all my life because it represents the struggle of my parents (…) I can walk again and dance,” confessed the cumbia singer for the aforementioned media. It is important to highlight that the artist has been part of the women’s orchestra ‘Alma Bella’ for the last 23 years.
In 2012, journalist Luis Arturo Clavijo published a message on Facebook stating that Marisol I had told him that Yolanda Medina had become involved in his relationship with George Nunez, the father of her son, when they were young. After that incident, the cumbiambera confirmed on several occasions that her first relationship ended due to infidelity. However, she never wanted to reveal the name of the person involved.
In that same publication, the father of Marisol’s son responded and said that he separated from the cumbia singer when his son was 3 years old, not during pregnancy, as was said. Furthermore, he accused Marisol of creating this whole scandal, getting more fame.
“This lady (Marisol) already got what she wanted: to have more fame, to be overwhelmed by fame. And the production company that made her mini-trash (miniseries) will fill its pockets,” she wrote more than 10 years ago.
Recently, the singer Yolanda Medina talked with ‘America Today’ to tell her version of the events and respond to the also cumbia singer, Marisol, who appeared with his lawyer on Magaly TV La Firme. According to the leader of Alma Bella, she has not yet received the notarial letter that ‘La Faraona’ had threatened to send
“I just want to tell you that I am waiting for your letter, calm down, because when you have a clear conscience you always resolve things calmly. Years ago I should have sued her, but since I felt very sorry for her, I didn’t do it. They will have the necessary tests. Many years have passed, I should have put an end to it (…). She left everything in the air, the networks are cruel and judge. “I didn’t ask for it, I didn’t relive it,” she said.
