A year ago, Lucia Bosé died in the Segovia hospital. As his daughter Paola later told him, it was because of pneumonia, a recurrent illness in the family, not the covid. She was able to accompany her mother in her last hours given the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. Lucia, the eldest of the siblings, continued in Valencia and Miguel in Mexico where she has lived for two years. It was not until last summer when the singer was able to organize a civil farewell at his home in Somosaguas, in Madrid, attended by only a handful of intimate friends. These 12 months without her being a great Italian actress have been especially convulsive for the family who, in addition to facing their duel, have had to face the lawsuit between the singer and Nacho Palau, who was his partner for 26 years and with whom he decided to form a family with their four children.
In this time of absence Miguel Bosé has become a controversial character due to his controversial denial statements about the covid, vaccines and his criticism of 5G. There have been so many controversies that it has caused that their social networks were suspended. It has been silent for months. Not even the first triumph in court in which the filiation of the four children he educated with Palau is settled, pending appeal, have brought him out of his silence. People from his closest circle assure that Bosé tried to resolve the matter without coming before the judge but that Palau was firm in his decision that the children should not leave Spain. Experts from the recording industry assure that the singer suffers from a problem in his voice that will hardly allow him to sing again. All this has plunged the edge into a state of sadness.
Miguel Bosé trusts few people and only opens his privacy to them, but in recent months he has made a concession by accepting that the story of his life becomes a series. The screenwriter Ángeles González Sinde and Boris Izaguirre, one of her great friends, are in charge of capturing their experiences for a series that is expected to reach the success of the one that starred Luis Miguel.
What remains to be known, since the works of the series are kept in great secrecy, is whether the singer will offer his version of the events that led to the separation from Palau and the family breakdown.
Another controversial aspect of the script will be Miguel Bosé’s sometimes complicated relationship with his mother. The singer adored Lucia Bosé, whom he cared for and protected from a distance, although this was not always the case. The actress herself, who died at the age of 89, admitted it in an interview on Telecinco: “Yes there was a time when we did not speak to each other, but that has already happened and I do not remember why.” The Italian had what she called a selective memory and remembered what she wanted. Perhaps what happened was that their peculiar personalities collided and no one gave their arm to twist. The arrival of Miguel’s children helped in the recovery of the relationship. Lucia said that one day her son called on the phone. “You are a grandmother,” he told her. The actress had no idea that three months ago the singer had been a double father and neither that two other children were on the way, the little ones from Nacho Palau. From that moment she became a discreet grandmother. He visited them in Mexico and Panama and spent time with them until last summer. When Bosé and Palau broke up after 26 years of silent relationship, she was silent but continued to visit the other grandchildren, those who lived in Valencia, but always did so with discretion. The actress was scheduled to testify in favor of Palau. Once again, the world was going to be a hatchet.
“I have been a difficult mother. The one that I could have been. I have been a mother, a father and a civil guard. But I have never been the maruja who is always on top, overprotects and repeats: ‘My love, how much I love you! You have to let your children fly. I told mine when they turned 17: ‘You are free to do whatever you want. Now, don’t touch my balls or I’ll touch you too. ‘ The family is a pain in the ass! ”, He said in an interview with Vanity Fair, something he repeated whenever he could.
He always had a complicated relationship with his son. “I see Miguel as a son in a way, I admire Miguel Bosé as an artist,” said the actress in an interview on Italian television. The mother promoted the son’s musical career to the amazement of Luis Miguel Dominguín, who would have preferred a bullfighter son. After his divorce from the matador, he never remarried, although he lived great loves that he always hid. He liked to surround himself with young people and young people sought his company. At 89 she had an incredible vitality and liked to surround herself with people much younger than herself. On this the first anniversary of her death, many of them remember her on their social networks as “the blue mommy.”
Lucía Bosé was much more than the singer’s mother. His story is typical of a television script. As she herself recalled in numerous interviews, she worked as a clerk in the mythical Galli pastry shop in Milan, at the age of 16 when one day the master of Italian neorealism entered the establishment and asked her for a box of candied chestnuts. While she was preparing it, he discovered the acting talent of the diva, fell in love with her and made her his muse. There began a brilliant career and a unique story. “At the time he seemed crazy to me. It was like a brother, a lover. I gave Visconti what I have given to few men, a true love ”, evoked the actress during the presentation of her biography during the Rome Film Festival just a few months before her death.
