This Wednesday the seventh episode of ‘Dew. Tell the truth to stay alive‘, The documentary series in which Rocío Carrasco speaks for the first time in more than two decades to give her version of the story. In this last installment, in addition to continuing with the heartbreaking story about the separation from Antonio David Flores and the custody of their children in common, Carrasco has also addressed the death of Rocío Jurado.
This week’s episode has started with the reason for which Rocío Carrasco opted for joint custody despite having full custody of their children. At that time, Carrasco recalls, the former civil guard constantly reiterated on television and in magazines that he could not see his children. “It led me to think that maybe if I agreed in some way and helped him spend more time with the children, all that would stop.. And in a way he was going to leave me alone because he was going to get what he wanted ”, he reveals.
“I have always made sure that these children wanted to be with their father and I have always taken care of guarding their father’s face. And the children wanted to be with their father, indeed”, Assures Carrasco. For this reason, he thought that despite the fact that he had a sentence granting him full custody of the children, perhaps the media “crush” would cease with a private regulatory agreement in which it was established that the children would spend fifteen days with her and fifteen with the father. “We came to the conclusion that if it really was what he wanted, maybe everything would stop. And it would stop the crushing of the children and the public“, Explain.
Thus, Carrasco and her lawyer made the regulatory agreement and assures that she signed and that she had to wait up to six months for Antonio David to sign it as well. “During those six months I have to swallow all the ‘Martian Chronicles’ in the world saying ‘he won’t let me see my children’. Call to Javier Sarda and I told him that everything he was saying was a lie and that it had been an agreement for six months at the lawyer’s table for him to sign it, ”reveals Flores’s ex-wife, who states that after the presenter’s wake-up call, the former civil guard signed on July 18, 2003. With the document presented, Rocío Jurado’s daughter corroborates that Antonio David Flores was never granted joint custody by a judge.
That agreement effectively meant that the children were going to spend more time with their father. And, as Rocío Carrasco reveals, it did not take long for her to see changes in her children. “There are changes that I see in the personality of children. Everything he did in terms of education, when they returned from fifteen days with his father, it was as if he had made a sand castle and a wave had come “, he reveals. “I begin to notice that the children come very tired (…). They came from not having a bedtime schedule, from being surrounded by older people, from being able to do whatever they wanted.“, Explain.
Rocío Carrasco: “There are changes that I see in children, but I did it believing that it was doing them good and I regret it”
“Do you regret having signed?” Then the interviewer asks Carrasco. “I did it believing that I was doing them a good thing and I regret it, because in the end what I have achieved has been to offer and put more time on a plate so that he can achieve what he has achieved. I want to believe that I acted diligently that it was best for them. My children wanted to be with their father ”, he replies. “My bond with both of them is very strong until my mother passes away,” he reveals later.
Rocío Carrasco is broken when remembering the death of her mother
Precisely with the death of Rocío Jurado, her daughter has continued the story. Carrasco reviews absolutely everything, since the singer began to feel bad, in 2004, through the different interventions and treatments that the artist underwent both in Spain and in Houston, in the United States.
“He had been feeling unwell for a few days and went to the doctor, who told him that he had to return immediately to Madrid (…). The severity is seen when they tell you the disease and where you have it. Pancreatic cancer ”, recalls Rocío Jurado’s daughter. “I remember that the doctor told me what it was and I said ‘what does that mean?’ And he told me: “Well, 80% do not survive.” And I told him that my mother was at 20%. But fear, terror. Very scared ”, Carrasco explains now about that hard moment.
However, that was only the beginning of a fight that ended on June 1, 2006 after a few especially tough months. “He went away. That was but the worst day of my life one of the worst. The most important thing a person can have was leaving, which is his mother. And mine was leaving me. Everyone cried for the artist. But I was crying for my mother. For me she was not Rocío Jurado, she was my mother ”, says Rocío Carrasco tearfully.
“She was proud of me. I was very proud of myself and I know it perfectly well and there is no need for anyone to tell me or emphasize it. Because there are things that only she and I know. Nobody knows them but her and me. And that’s enough for me ”, she continues, collapsed in front of the cameras.
Rocío Flores’s question that changed everything: “What’s going to happen to the houses in Miami?”
Carrasco has spent the last four months without separating from her mother and without seeing her children. The singer’s daughter preferred to leave the children, who were 9 and 7 years old at the time, with their father and focus on accompanying their mother in her last moments. What he did not expect was what he found when he was reunited with his children after their burial.
“I had not seen my children for four months. And suddenly I heard the doorbell and it was them. David came running, started kissing me and saying, “Mom, don’t cry.” And to dry my tears (…). And then, suddenly, Rocío arrives, who at that time was 9 years old. As soon as he arrived, he sat on those stairs, looked at me, and said: ‘Mom, now what’s going to happen to the houses in Miami’ ”, reveals Carrasco, visibly affected by remembering that episode.
