Gloria Trevi (born Gloria de los Ángeles Treviño Ruiz on February 15, 1968 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico) is a Mexican singer-songwriter. She was described as the "Supreme Diva of the Mexican Pop" by the music channel VH1 and sold over 20 million records. Her new album De Película was released in 2013.
Trevi released her first album in 1989, ¿Qué Hago Aquí? (What am I doing here). The album scored an instant number one hit, "Dr. Psiquiatra", and four other songs from the album climbed the charts. Trevi followed her first record with Tu Ángel de la Guarda (Your guardian angel), which was more successful than the first. Pelo Suelto became her most widely known hit, reaching number one all over Latin America and Spain as well as becoming popular with the Latino population of the United States. Her third album, Me siento tan sola (I feel SO lonely), was released in 1992 garnering another hit, Zapatos Viejos (Old Shoes). All three albums were recorded in Los Angeles.
Her manager recruited young girls to talent camps and molested them. Trevi was initially indicted, was held in prison, but ultimately found innocent as she was not aware of the rape being committed by her manager.
In 1993, Trevi was nominated for Pop Female Artist of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards.
In 2000, Trevi, Andrade, and backup singer Maria Raquenel Portillo were arrested in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on charges of corrupting minors. A year later, Trevi announced that she was pregnant while in prison; the father of the child was Andrade, according to DNA tests by the Brazilian authorities (Trevi and her defence claimed that the results of the DNA test were doctored). Trevi was cleared of the charges in 2004, due to lack of evidence, after spending four years and eight months in prison.
Trevi married Armando Gómez, a lawyer, in 2009. She now lives in McAllen, Texas. She will star as the protagonist (alongside with Gabriel Soto) in Emilio Larrosa's telenovela: Libre para amarte. Trevi's ninth album "De Pelicula" was released on September 24, 2013. The albums' two singles "No Soy Un Pájaro" (released in both Pop and Banda Versions) and "No Querías Lastimarme" were issued as the albums' singles. .
