Puerto Rican Salsa singer La India is currently hospitalized in San Juan, PR after a brutal beating! Reports revealed that the singer suffered a fractured nose with a hematoma and internal bleeding in her head.
Reports claim that the singer was a victim of domestic violence and her 32-year-old boyfriend Javier Padilla González was arrested.
Puerto Rican newspaper ‘El Nuevo Día’ has reported that the singer claims that the beating was not from her boyfriend Padilla González but that some (translated) “a white couple beat her down…. After the fight, she returned to her apartment, and that’s when the police arrived and arrested her boyfriend.”
Police documents revealed that Javier Padilla González had “deep scratches” on his face when he was arrested. Current reports state that Padilla-González was released after the singer’s denial of any wrong doing.
UPDATE: It is reported that the singer continues defending her boyfriend by speaking to a local Puerto Rican station and said “I was attacked by an American woman and her boyfriend, on my way to the restroom…. she thought I cut the line. The woman yelled nasty and racist things at me. Everything happened at Oceano, the music was loud and nobody noticed the fight. My boyfriend defended me because she threw me on the floor… the woman scratched my face. Everything happened so fast that I couldn’t defend myself, but we couldn’t get them. Neighbors called the police….. When the police arrived, we asked for help because we were nervous. The police treated me well, they gave me oxygen. I wasn’t doing well. The police arrested Javier….. He has never hit me and treats me well. I remember the faces of that American woman and her boyfriend. I want Justice!”
Many people have stated that they do not believe the singer at all what so ever. What do you think?
