On the morning of December 12, the whole world woke up shocked by the news that Vicente Fernandez has died. Through their official social networks, the singer’s family published a statement.

Rest in peace Mr. Vicente Fernández. We regret to inform you of his death on Sunday, December 12 at 6:15 am. It was an honor and a great pride to share a great musical career with everyone and to give everything for his audience. Thank you for continuing to applaud, thank you for continuing to sing“.

The 81-year-old man’s cause of death was also revealed, a few years ago he underwent surgery that removed almost half of his liver due to a cancerous tumor. The following year he faced severe pulmonary thrombosis and, as if that were not enough, then 3 hernias were removed.

But all this tragedy could have been avoided, although the fate is really uncertain. In 2019, the ranchera legend revealed on the show “First hand“I would rather die than receive a transplant from a homosexual or drug addict. Vicente revealed that he refused to receive a liver transplant in case the donor was gay.

While in Houston they found me a small ball in the bile ducts and it was cancer, they found a donor in two days but when they told me I interrupted the tour. They wanted to put another c4 & r0n’s liver on me and I said: no friend, I’m not going to sleep with my wife with another guy’s organ, nor do I know if he was homosexual or a drug addict“.
