NINEL CONDE’S PRIVATE LIFE
Ninel began a romantic relationship with actor Ari Telch, whom she met during her time on TV Azteca, when she was still a teenager at the start of her career. Her daughter Sofa was born from that relationship in 1997, but the relationship did not last and ended in 1999.
Following that, she had a three-year relationship with singer José Manuel Figueroa, and while they became one of the most beloved couples in the artistic medium at the start of the 2000s, Ninel came to believe that Figueroa’s constant infidelities wore away the relationship, which ended in 2006.
She later met and married the Mexican businessman Juan Zepeda in 2006. This union lasted seven years and ended abruptly in 2013 when Ninel accused Zepeda of stealing a large sum of money, resulting in the businessman serving seven months in jail.
In recent years, the “killer hottie” has expressed regret, claiming that she was carried away by bad advice and rash behavior without considering the consequences.
In 2013, she was in a relationship with Giovanni Medina. However, Ninel has stated that Medina had violent attitudes toward her during their four-year marriage, which resulted in her divorce in 2017.
