Biography

"Gloria de los Angeles Treviño Ruiz, 15 February 1970, Monterrey, Mexico. Nicknamed La Atrevida (the Daring One), this pop singer was one of the biggest stars of Latin music in the early 90s before her career came crashing down in a series of controversial court appearances at the end of the decade.

Raised in Monterrey in the north of Mexico, Trevi took ballet lessons and learned to play the piano and drums as a teenager. After moving to Mexico City in her early teens, Trevi was approached by Sergio Andrade, a pop impresario more than twice her age who would become inextricably involved in Trevi's career and personal life. Trevi launched her music career in 1985 as a member of Andrade's teen girl group Boquitas Pintadas (Little Coloured Mouths). She performed with the group for four years before Andrade encouraged her to break away and reinvent herself as a solo artist. Andrade landed her an independent record deal and helped her record her 1989 solo debut, Que Hago Aqui?. The single "Dr. Psiquiatra" was a smash hit on the Latin charts and helped boost sales of the album and follow-up singles.

A major label recording contract with BMG Latin followed in 1990. There then followed a calculated assault on the Latin market which raised Trevi's profile to superstar status, but also made her a virtual pariah figure to the authorities in many Latin American countries. Tackling taboo subjects such as teen pregnancy, abortion and drug abuse helped make Trevi a hugely popular figure with the burgeoning teen audience. Her concerts frequently featured the singer stripping young members of the audience on stage, while a bestselling series of risquélendars featured Trevi in various states of undress. Madonna was employing a similar approach for the North American and European markets, so it was inevitable that the two performers were frequently compared and provoked the same righteous anger from religious and moral groups. Amidst all the controversy, Trevi sold millions of copies of her records and filmed two box-office smashes, making her and Andrade, by now her partner, one of the wealthiest couples in Mexico.

In 1998, a former backing singer and ex-wife of Andrade, Aline Hernandez, published a book that claimed sexual abuse and physical and emotional humiliation were rife in Trevi's entourage. Then a baby found in a convent in Spain turned out to be the child of Trevi's backing singer, Karina Yapor. Her mother filed a suit in her home city of Chihuahua in northern Mexico. Other members of Trevi's touring group, including Delia Gonzalez and the De La Cuesta sisters Karola and Katia, told similar stories of abuse. Mexican prosecutors subsequently accused Trevi, Andrade and backing singers Maria Raquenel Portillo and Marlene Calderon of charges of abduction, corrupting minors and sexual abuse. Trevi, Andrade and Portillo fled Mexico in 1998 but two years later were arrested in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they were incarcerated after refusing to return to Mexico. In a bizarre turn of events, Trevi gave birth to a son in February 2002 while being held in a women's prison in Brazil. Although the singer claimed a prison guard raped her, DNA tests later indicated the father was actually Andrade. Trevi returned to Mexico in December 2002 where she was held in a Chihuahua prison before standing trial. Portillo also returned to Mexico to stand trial alongside Trevi and Calderon, while Andrade was extradited in November 2003 to be tried separately. In September 2004, Trevi, Portillo and Calderon were cleared of all charges due to insufficient evidence."
