Charo is breaking her silence following the death of her husband, Kjell Rasten. Rasten sadly passed away in February after committing suicide.
The star shared a message with fans on Wednesday, March 22 and thanked them for all of their support during this tough time.
“Hola amigos, it’s been a month since my husband died. It’s very, very hard. I want to thank you with all my heart for your help, your prayers, your support,” she shared in the video.
“That keeps me going. Thank you, thank you, thank you very much. I’ve been meditating all this month and I want to let you know that my husband supported my music, each performance was there applauding. So happy for me because he knew that I’m happy when I’m performing.”
She continued, “In his honor, I want to share with you that I will continue for his legacy and for the love that I have for entertaining to make people happy. Thank you with all my heart, and God bless you all.”
She also captioned the video, “Hola amigos, this message is to let you know that I love you all! Thank you for your support. I want to tell you that life is very beautiful and we should enjoy every Single day and I look forward to sharing my days with you, my friends! Mucho amor!”
Charo and Rasten were married for 40 years before he sadly passed away. She released a statement shortly after his death.
“Yesterday, Kjell, My husband of 40 years and the love of my life killed himself. There are no words to describe what we are feeling now. He was an amazing man, a great husband and the best father I could imagine to our son. He dedicated his life to loving and supporting his family,” she said in a statement at the time.
“In recent years, his health began to decline and he developed a rare and horrible skin disease called Bullous Pemphigoid. He also became very depressed. That, along with the many medications he needed to take, became too much for him, and he ended his suffering.”
