The controversial dinner in Adela Micha’s apartment
At that time Figueroa worked in the same company, but on television and had also become friends with a Spanish ex-boyfriend of Adela’s, “they saw each other in the clubs to ‘suck’”, says Micha.
The journalist recounts that at that time she had just broken up with that boyfriend due to what happened in a dinner that she had in that department of Donceles with Carlos Slim and Carlos Monsivais.
“Slim always told me that he wanted to meet him, so I did the match and invited them to dinner… I put the two Carlos together“, Explain.
“I stupidly invited my ex-boyfriend who stupidly he missed the cups, all wrong. That day we thundered and coincidentally these two became very good friends [su ex novio y Martha Figueroa]So I said ‘what?who did the information come from?’, from this bastard, but to me Carlos Slim never gave me anything”.

Adela Micha got angry with Martha Figueroa because the journalist did not ask her the veracity of the information, despite the fact that they worked in the same place: “I mean, with what eggs, we saw each other every day, so easy that it would have been for her to ask me … that If he had given it to me, I would have said so.He didn’t give me a mansion either, but that wasn’t the case.”

“Because she did not like something I published about her in my column, I commented that her previous boyfriend was more handsome than the current one, she got very angry, that they had given him an apartment”.
