Social Media

Despite being a public figure, Vanessa isn’t active on any social media, and isn’t too keen on sharing too much with the media, as she prefers staying secretive on some subjects. However, we do know that she was married to Chris Pérez. Reportedly, they met through a mutual friend, and became a couple in 1998. Moving forward, they married in 2001 and had two children, a son and a daughter.

They filed for divorce in 2008, but the rumor has it that Vanessa wanted to try to work things out, but it didn’t go as planned. Absence of any potential love interest from Villanueva’s life lead many to believe that she might be single, but she hasn’t confirmed or denied anything. Who knows what the future holds, and we wish her well.


Vanessa has briefly acted, making her debut in 2015 with the role of Gaby Valdez in “Forgotten Memories”, collaborating with people such as Jose Alvarez Jr., Isaiah Andalon and Rafael Cardenas. That is her only acting role, but she has also been listed as a unit electrician in “Memphis Rising: Elvis Returns”. We believe that Villanueva has a bright future ahead of her if she decides to dedicate herself more to acting.

Ex-Husband Chris Pérez

Christopher Gilbert Pérez was born on 14 August 1969, in San Antonio, Texas, USA, which means that his zodiac sign is Leo and he’s 50 years old. Chris, whose nationality is American, is best known as a former member of the band Selena y Los Dinos, and the ex-husband of late singer Selena. He was born into a family of four, to Carmen Medina and Gilbert Pérez and was one of two children.

Reportedly, he had musical tendencies from an early age, learning to play French horn in school. His mother supported Chris’ career, but wasn’t too keen on his instrument choice, because of the stigma around rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. As Pérez stated, his idols were musicians such as Def Leppard, Kiss, the Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne and Iron Maiden.


In 1990, Chris and his band worked on “Ven Conmigo”, consisting of songs such as “Baila Esta Cumbia”, “Enamorada de Ti”, “Aunque No Salga el Sol” and “No Quiero Saber”. The album ultimately received a positive response from critics, and was eventually certified triple platinum. After that, he was featured on albums such as “Entre a Mi Mundi”, in 1992. The album was consisted of 10 tracks, including “¿Qué Creias?”, “Siempre Estoy Pensando En Ti”, “Missing My Baby” and “Amame”, and was positively reviewed by critics, peaking at number one on US Regional Mexican Albums chart.

Reportedly, at this time Chris and Selena began seeing each other as something more than just colleagues, but her father and the manager of the group disagreed with their liaison, which led to Chris leaving the band. Nonetheless, he subsequently returned, and his relationship with Selena was accepted this time. The final album of the group – “Dreaming of You” – was released in 1995 as an homage to Selena, after she was killed by her assistant. Pérez then went on to make a break from music, only to return and form the Chris Pérez Band, with whom he worked on albums such as “Resurrection”, dedicated to his late wife. He also wrote a book dedicated to her, “To Selena, With Love” and he keeps in touch with Selena’s family.
