The imprisonment of the interpreter of Fall in love It was a historical fact on the national scene, especially considering that it was nothing more and nothing less than one of the best-known artists both inside and outside our borders. It is because of that this entrance to the prison of Alcalá de Guadaíra, in Sevilleit became even tougher if possible, especially taking into account the great media pressure to which she was going to be subjected in a very difficult situation on a personal level.
It was 07:55 in the morning of the day in question when the widow of Francisco Rivera He set foot in prison for the first time, allowing himself to be photographed without any qualms and in the company of his brother. Upon her arrival, Isabel handed over her DNI and the order for her to be imprisoned and then said goodbye to Agustín and kicked off one of the hardest times in her life. From that moment, the singer began to be part of a prison population that had 150 prisoners classified as the least conflictive in the country and that are distributed in a total of 83 cells.
