During the last chapter of Luis Miguel’s bioseries, the production addressed one of the most mysterious issues of his life: the reason why his younger brother, Sergio Basteri, left Mexico when he was still very young.
Although the series indicates that the singer’s brother faced problems because in those years the disappearance of his mother, Marcela Basteri, was uncovered, the reason why Sergio did not remain in the country could be different.
Octavio Foncerrada “El Doc”, who worked for 20 years with Luis Miguel, revealed during an interview the real reasons why the youngest of the Gallego Basteri left the country.
Foncerrada explained that after the death of the singer’s grandmother and her siblings, Matilde Sánchez, he took over the guardianship of Sergio, whom he says he considers a son.
It was precisely he who proposed to Luis Miguel to take Sergio Basteri to live abroad, to keep him from the fame of his older brother in Mexico, as he was very exposed to harassment by the media.
“I went to Acapulco and Sergio was already there, he was small, he thought he was very big. He spoke like a little Spanish and one day he said to me: ‘And who are you?’ He said, ‘Yo, El Doc.’ And Luis Miguel turns around and says: ‘Better pay attention to El Doc’, I already took him away, grabbed him by the hand, and started disciplining him, “he said.
Foncerrada comments that he then questioned the singer about what he would do with his brother’s guardianship, and that it was at that moment that he decided to offer to take care of him, but outside of Mexico.
“I would say to him: ‘What are you going to do with this beautiful boy?’ And I said: ‘Look, I’ll take care of him with all the love in the world, but I would like very much, so that he was not inside … there in Mexico and was the brother of … take him to Boston, but not like Alex but to leave there, long live. I took it with me, ”El Doc said.
In Boston, where Basteri and his tutor settled, the young Sergio studied music, obtaining a concert degree from the New England Conservatory.
