Mexican singer Paulina Rubio reaches divorce settlement

Mexican singer and actress Paulina Rubio has reached a divorce settlement with former husband Nicolás Vallejo Nájera, known as ‘Colate’.

The couple have agreed to share custody of their two year old son Andrea Nicholas, and PR executive Colate will also pay Rubio $6,750 per month in alimony – a total of $243,000 over three years according to a report on People en Español.

Rubio had originally sought $1 million but a compromise has now been reached after a year of negotiations at a family court in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

The couple married in April 2007 and announced their separation in March last year.

Rubio said that time “…is the only thing that has to pass (for you) to realize your projects, your relationships, and I think that we women are much better than (men) are because we’re more loyal; we have the virtue of seeing things with greater clarity than they do.”

Rubio was an original member of successful Mexican pop group Timbiriche, and released her first solo album La Chica Dorada (The Golden Girl) in 1992. She has sold more than 20 million albums, making her one of Mexico’s most successful performers.

Rubio has also appeared in a number of TV and film roles.
