On April 3, Camila Sodi confirmed her break up with the player during an interview with journalist Adela Micha. The 30-year-old actress candidly discussed the reasons that led to the end of their romance, which was intially revealed when ¡HOLA! México published photographs of the couple together in Paris. "(Media attention) It generates a lot of pressure on my relationships," said the former wife of fellow actor Diego Luna.

Adela Micha pressed forward with the topic of media pressure, inferring that it could be a reason Camila’s relationships end. Camila calmly replied: "As is, what happened now with Javier." The young woman - who is the niece of the singer Thalía - detailed that they had a nice relationship, but the attention they received on their romance weighed more: "It was too much pressure from the media… We were in a distance relationship and it was too much. Much derision on top of something very nice.”
