Later, in an interview with Venga La Alegría, the Mexican actress addressed that she was the victim of abuse, which led to their split. She said,

“I don’t have a boyfriend anymore because then they behave badly and do terrible things. They behave badly, then they get kind of aggressive, then they want to put their body on you and then no.”

Why Did Garza Break Up With Fernando?

Her ex-boyfriend Fernando is openly bisexual, and many claimed that his sexual orientation was the igniting factor of their break-up. On the other, some claimed that the Argentine-born actor and model was with Lorena to get hype from their relationship.

However, during an interview with Sale el Sol, De La Garza dispelled those rumors with her statement,

“[…] I don’t consider myself a famous person; I consider myself a well-known person, he didn’t use me or use me in the slightest […]”

Also, she stated that a person’s sexual orientation was not an issue for her as long as their heart was pure. Moreover, Lorena commented that she knew about Vega being bisexual at the start of their relationship.

“Bisexual, pansexual, trisexual, homosexual, that doesn’t matter to me; the only thing that matters to me about people is their heart and who they are.”

However, it was his infidelity and toxicity in the relationship that tore apart the couple, and he stated, ‘It was very strong when one gets triangulated; it had nothing to do with sexual orientation.’

Does Lorena Have a Child?

No, the La Hora Pico actress does not have a child. Instead, she has a parrot named Sebastian, often featuring her pet on her IG posts.

However, some mix up her name with Congresswoman Lorena de la Garza Venecia, who has a daughter, Ana Paula, and a son, Leo, with her husband, Julio César García.
