Just a few days ago, the famous interpreter had suffered from a stroke (cerebrovascular accident) and was hospitalized in Havana, Cuba, the city where she lived.

“Dear family and friends, I have preferred to send you this message because I know that many will continue to ask about our dear Suylén. His heart stopped beating a few hours ago“, The singer’s partner began by commenting.
“Pablo is serene because since the diagnosis of brain death he knew the outcome and it has been suffering heartbreakingly within the extraordinary strength it has. We are all unwell but together: the children, the aunt, Pablo and I,” she continued and assured that “for his health, which is fragile, they will not go to Havana for now.“.
