Last year, Trevi released her album “Gloria,” which she followed with an extensive international tour.

In her two decade-long career, Trevi has been no stranger to 

From the bottom to the top, back to the bottom and back up to the top, the story of Trevi has never ceased to fascinate on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border.
Trevi’s intriguing tale is one of those that really does seem to have everything in it: poverty and ambition, fame and scandal, celebrity and controversy, judicial incompetence and international politics.  

Almost 10 years ago, in what some called Trevi-gate, the singer was arrested and then released from prison in Brazil on charges of corrupting a minor. In 1999 Trevi and her then-manager Sergio Andrade has been charged with luring teenage singers with promises of stardom and then turning them into sex slaves. eventuially, all charges were dropped but Trevi remained in headlines for other antics.
From the mid’90s, through the scandalous affair

 with its international intrigue and on through the trial, the international media attention was relentless.

During a rare intertiew from her Monterrey home, Trevi, 44, brushed off questions about the scandal, saying only “One of the most important things I learned in the last five years, is that nothing is absolutely black or absolutely white, no one is absolutely bad, or absolutely good.  

“One should never judge from a distance,” she continued in her native Spanish. “In one way or another all the world thinks they have the reason, and sometime clearly, one side always has more reason. It is like the couple that is divorcing or separating. One side has more reason, but that doesn’t mean that side has been perfectly correct,...they too must have committed their own errors.”
