The second season of the bioseries of Vicente Fernandez, ‘The last king. The son of the people, continues to cause controversy not only because of the legal dispute between the producer and the family of ‘Don Chente’, but also because of the intimate details that have been revealed about the singer’s life. Among them, the alleged infidelity that he had with the actress of the Mexican cinema Isabel Soto “The Little Boy” while married to Dona Cuquita.
Let us remember that this series is based on the unauthorized biographical novel of the famous ‘Charro de Huentitán’, written by the Argentine journalist Olga Wornat. And it is that within this book some personal scandals of the artist are recounted that at the time did not come to light and remained in rumours, as was one of his most notorious romances: the one that would have lived with the singer Isabel Soto La Marina in the late 1960s.

The young woman gained notoriety in the 70’s thanks to her participation in the new Mexican cinema, which at that time had Vicente Fernández as one of its main stars.
He had prominent roles in films like ‘Sergeant Perez’ Y ‘Smell of Death’but unfortunately Isabel Soto’s career would last very little.
Although it is not specified where he met Fernández, it has been speculated on networks that it was on the program ‘Nights of Tapas’led by various ranchera music stars.
What did Isabel Soto “La Chicotita” die of?
The so-called “Chicotita” died July 4, 1973 at the age of 28 due to a peritonitis, which could not be attended to promptly and became complicated. She was buried in the pantheon of actors in Mexico City, taking to the grave the truth about her supposed love affair with Vicente Fernández.
Although the infidelity of ‘El Rey’ was never confirmed, the producer John Osorio decided to include this love affair in one of the episodes of the bioseries, who was not only criticized for taking up this story, but also because the role of “La Chicotita” is played by his girlfriend, the actress Eva Daniela.
