Vanessa Villanueva and her relationship with Chris Perez
Vanessa Villanueva and Chris met in 1998 through their mutual friend John Garza. The couple began dating soon after. His career also soared around that time and he signed with new, labels and also won awards for his songs and albums.
They got married in 2001 and share two children together. The kids are a daughter called Cassie and a son named Noah. But in two years, the couple’s relationship turned bad and they divorced in 2008.

Chris Perez and his first wife
Chris was dating the daughter Selena of his band’s founder, Abraham. They began their relationship two years after Chris joined the band. But Abraham initially was against the relationship since he felt that Chris’ image might negatively affect the career of Selena. But the love birds did not agree to it and eloped and got married in 1992.
Abraham, later on, approved of the wedding and inducted Chris in his band as a permanent member.
Selena was running boutiques and her financial manager Yolanda Saldivar committed some frauds. In 1995, Selena came to know about it and had to recover some tax documents from Yolanda. Hence, she went along with Chris to recover them. Yolanda deliberately gave her some wrong documents and later called Selena alone to the hotel to hand her the right documents. A verbal fight ensued between the two with Selena breaking her relations with Yolanda. The latter in a fit of rage removed her pistol and fired at Selena killing her.
Last year, Chris paid a tribute to his wife saying:
“Although we all have our trials and tribulations that we have to go through in this life . . . we MUST be thankful for the ones that we meet along the way . . . that made us realize . . . love is REAL. Love is UNCONDITIONAL . . . love NEVER DIES. #MyCoco.”
