Marina Charpentier and the dramatic testimony about her son, Chano’s struggle with addictions.
“I had already asked for help because he was sick. Before I was shot, I asked a psychiatrist to come because he was sick, he didn’t want to go into the hospital. Three ambulances came with a doctor, without a psychiatrist. I said to myself ‘three ambulances and two patrol cars couldn’t do anything, what else do I have to do? “, he assured.
And about that moment, he remembers it as a real nightmare: “This time he almost really died. Sometimes I will get up and think that it is a film of a son with his mother and a policeman shooting him at a meter ”.

Regarding the present of the artist, who is spending his days in a drug rehabilitation clinic, he commented: “Today he has a clean month. Today is my son, my son returned. The loving person came back, so creative. When it is in consumption it loses the light, he loses his gaze and turns gray. Today it was bright again, “he added.
Hopeful for the singer’s speedy recovery, Marina anxiously waits for her son to leave the rehabilitation clinic clean. “I dream that I have peace. That you have a normal life, that you don’t have to be depending on something to be happy. I want it to be free. “
