Luis Miguel is the most popular and successful musician in Latin American history, having sold over 60 million records.
However, Luis Miguel is still embroiled in scandal with the disappearance of his mother, Marcela Basteri.
Millions of people have talked about him and written books on his search for his missing mother. Marcela’s disappearance has sparked many speculations as a result of the debate. Despite this, the mystery remains unsolved.
Miguel’s preoccupation with his absent mother is so strong that it has spawned a TV show. The musical biographical series Luis Miguel: The Series, which captured the behind-the-scenes life of the Mexican pop icon, premiered on Netflix on April 18, 2018. The quest for the Mexican singer’s missing mother is a crucial plot point in the series.
Fans tuned in to get the answers to queries like, “What happened to Luis Miguel’s mother?” and “Did Luis Miguel find his mother?”
Miguel’s Mother Marcela vanished from his life 34 years ago, and no one knows where she is or has heard from her since then.
Marcela Basteri’s disappearance has sparked a number of ideas
Marcela fled away with her Italian boyfriend, according to her husband, Luis Gallego Sánchez, commonly known as Luis Rey, who last saw her. Rey killed his wife for money, according to the second and most common theory, which Andrés Garca confirmed.
During an interview on the Mexican entertainment show Venga la Alegra, Garcia said that Luis Rey had begged him to assist him remove Marcela in 1986 so that he could have complete control over his son’s income.

According to other sources, Rey used Marcela’s identity to disguise his connections to various criminal businesses that he created using Miguel’s money. All of this money would be his if something happened to his wife.
Garcia, on the other hand, said that Rey’s sister-in-law claimed he drowned her in a pool. These accusations and allegations, however, have yet to be substantiated.
The Death of Luis Rey
Marcela’s disappearance has sparked numerous ideas, but Miguel’s father, Luis Rey, died in a mysterious manner for which no one knows the cause.
Rey passed away in Barcelona on December 9, 1992, from pneumonia. Some claim, however, that the singer was suffering from a different ailment. According to Javier León’s biography of Miguel, his father led a life full of drugs, alcohol, and sexual meetings with several women.
His lifestyle harmed his health, and when he was admitted to the hospital, he was diagnosed with AIDS. Another tale claims that Rey died of an overdose rather than AIDS. In an interview with Ventaneando, his brother, Mario Vicente Gallego, revealed this version.
We’re left to question what happened to Miguel’s parents in the first place.
