Selena and Perez met when he joined the band Selena y Los Dinos. They quickly hit it off and exchanged vows in 1992.

How old was Selena when she got married?

She was 20, and Perez was 22. They kept their love a secret from her father, Abraham Quintanilla, who was against the relationship. He wanted his daughter Selena to focus on her music career mainly. So, they eloped to exchange vows.

However, three years later, the newlywed bride was killed by her former pal and manager of her boutiques, Yolanda Saldivar. This was the source of Chris's depression.

When did Chris Perez get with Vanessa?

The arrival of Vanessa in Chris's life after his tragic loss seemed to be what he needed and wanted. They dated for a while before eventually tying the knot on 26 October 2001.

But, before tying the knot, they welcomed their firstborn daughter Cassie Gabrielle in 1998. Their second-born Noah was born after their union in 2005.

Nevertheless, the guitarist has continued to show love and adoration to his late wife openly. In 2012, he released a book dedicated to her entitled To Selena, With Love.

The artist has never discussed Vanessa in a bad light either. It may portray that the two are still on good terms despite ending their romantic relationship.
