After rumors that her son Cristian Castro allegedly had a homosexual affair with an Argentinean designer surfaced a few days ago, Verónica Castro said she didn’t know why this caused such a big ruckus.

“I don’t know why people are so frightened by sexual preferences… Power to gay people, power to liberation. What’s the problem?,” the 56-year-old actress said on the Mexican TV show La Oreja (Televisa), without confirming nor denying the rumors that her son is gay.

“Now he’ll have to ask me with who, at what time and how? No, we each wear the family jewels however we choose,” Vero said, asking the press to show celebrities some respect. A few days ago, Valeria Liberman –who is still Cristian’s wife– insinuated that the Mexican singer had ‘other’ sexual preferences.

Cristian, who is in the process of divorcing Liberman, the mother of his children: 2-year-old Simone and 6-month-old Mikhail Zaratustra, was rumored to have an affair in 2003 with Argentinean designer Mariano Gaspar Chiappetta. To make matters worse, Chiapetta was under investigation for murdering the brother of the owner of Argentinean newspaper La Nación.
