In an exclusive interview for the October edition of PEOPLE EN ESPAÑOL, Cristian Castro reveals the details of his distancing from wife Valeria Liberman, a situation that has driven him to leave his Miami home and move to Mexico after nearly 3 years of marriage.

“I want to be free,” the artist, 32, admits with confidence to PEOPLE EN ESPAÑOL. “I think that in life, we all have to take care of ourselves and our needs. If you can't do that, then you have to move on,” he adds. This surprising confession came only days after Liberman's interview with the magazine (which wasn't published, but it is available in, in which she had described Castro as an attentive and passionate husband.

For now, the couple's daughter Simone, 2, will stay with Liberman, who is 5 months pregnant, in Miami. Castro plans on keeping an apartment in Miami in order to stay close to his children and guarantee them the presence of a father figure. “I want to be a good dad and a fun dad who will always be with them. It's important for me to have close friendships with my children,” he declares. Although the distance from his daughter bothers him, the “Sin tu amor” singer says that “she definitely won't be lacking the love, respect and ambition to succeed in her life that perhaps I lacked to succeed in my own.”

As for the conflicts with his mother, actress Verónica Castro, the Mexican singer says that a reconciliation is “very likely,” especially now that they'll be living in the same country.
