When Eva González and Cayetano Rivera got married in 2015, Lucía Rivera (24) was already 17 years old. The young woman was the daughter of Blanca Romero, the right-handed man's first wife, and also his, since, after her marriage to Romero, she decided to give her last name to Lucía, adopt her and become her father.
Lucía Rivera has published her book 'Nothing is what it seems' (Espasa), in which she reveals numerous details of the problems she has suffered in her life -despite her youth- and some of which still continue.
In the book, the issue of his relationship with Eva González - by now already separated from Cayetano - does not go unnoticed, saying that "at first, and to my chagrin, he only hid his displeasure towards me."
However, in statements on the 'Espejo Público' program, he has commented that he does not want to go into "who is bad or good, because there is no one bad or good. It is my story and it is like that, and I think this will have happened to many people."
Lucía adds in her book that, although she understood that her father -Cayetano- rebuilt his life with Eva, this fact was not to her liking, especially considering that the young woman at that time was not having a good time as a result of her romantic relationship with a toxic person who used drugs.
When Blanca and Cayetano separated, Lucía and the bullfighter distanced themselves, but when Cayetano was born - the son of the bullfighter and Eva González - father and daughter got closer again. Even Lucía went to meet her new brother bringing her gifts.
With the passage of time, Lucía Rivera has assured that, "although I have grown up with what they will say, I have understood that both my father and his now ex-wife, from whom I would have liked to receive some crumb of affection, have done the best that they could". And she also claims that what she tells in her book is "the truth."
A truth that goes much further, since it reveals having suffered mistreatment by two ex-partners. The first, psychological; the second, even physical. She says that her second partner, who used drugs, was unfaithful on numerous occasions, something that made her "ever smaller and filled me with anger." She even adds that she came to defend him and excuse him "because he was drugged, he believed that it was a normal way of relating, that I would be able to change him, that I was to blame." Despite "having suffered threats and that he grabbed me by the neck."
This violence left Lucía traumatized, who highlights her grandfather as an important father figure in her life, whom she considers "a great father." Adding that Cayetano, with his successes and errors, has also been.
Of his biological father, whose identity has never been revealed, he speaks as 'W', while he calls Cayetano 'C'. She also tells that she got to know the first of her, but that for her this fact ended up being a disappointment.
She wanted to meet her biological father, which happened when the girl was 11 years old, but, according to the book, "my father had not come to meet me. The villain had come to blackmail my mother and ask her for money in exchange for some videos of when she was a child and they had relationships.
In addition, the young woman looked too thin and became self-conscious, forcing herself to eat "to gain weight, have curves and feel sexier like other girls, because my thinness was mocked", and she even lost contracts with various firms for this reason.
For all these reasons, Lucía Rivera has had anxiety and depression problems since she was a child, as well as with food, until her grandmother took her to an endocrinologist and began her treatment.
Her bad experiences in life have led her to want to bring to light a problem that also exists in adolescence and among young people, and that Lucía wants it to be known with this book that, apart from having served as a therapy for herself , it could also help many other young women who may be going through similar situations.
Luckily for Lucía, and although her last relationship has already broken up, she remembers this as a healthy relationship with a wonderful man who has made her understand that there are also good men. Although I don't talk about these in her book.
