MEXICO CITY, October 24, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Mexican pop star Gloria Trevi, whose mass popularity in the early 1990s led to her being called Mexico’s Madonna, has been arrested on charges of operating an under-age sex ring. Trevi, whose on-stage acts and lyrics promoted abortion rights and contraception, is being held in a prison in Brazil and trying to avoid extradition to Mexico where she will face charges.

The London Independent reports that Trevi – along with Sergio Andrade, her manager, and Mary Boquitas, the lead singer in Trevi’s first band – is accused of holding teenage backing singers captive and forcing them to perform sexual acts. Several of the girls who had run away were found to have given birth to babies fathered by Andrade. Andrade, who masterminded Trevi’s rise to fame and thus her abortion promotion, is also being held in prison in Brazil.
