How did Christian Meier and Marisol Aguirre meet?
Although many do not believe it, the actors did not meet in the novel of Panamericana Televisión “Sparrow”, but long before. The actress was a friend of the members of Arena Hash, a rock group from the 80s made up of Pedro Suárez-Vértiz, Patricio Suárez-Vértiz, Alex Kornhuber and Christian Meier, who worked as a keyboardist.

Some time later, when the recordings of the novel began, both showed a lot of chemistry, which crossed the television screens. In 1995, they got married and just a year later their first child, Estefano Meier, was born.
In the late 1990s, Aguirre and Meier separated for a year and a half; however, they overcame this crisis. After a while, they had two more daughters: Taira Meier (2001) and Gia Meier (2003).
Why did Christian Meier and Marisol Aguirre break up?
In 2008, after 13 years of marriage, the actors announced their divorce. In the midst of the scandal over her separation, the actress, in statements for the now-defunct magazine “Gisela”, revealed that she only needed her still husband to sign the divorce and that the decision to separate was “the safest in life her”.
“I have been very happy with Christian, but for some time now I feel that I have no life of my own, I have lived in his shadow. I left everything: my career, my personal projects; all for my family,” Aguirre said.
Another rumor that was speculated about their divorce was an alleged case of violence, which was ruled out by the actress.
“I am here as the mother of three children to clarify that all these headlines are false, Christian has never thrown a fist at me or attacked me, I have never said it”, denied the remembered ‘Sparrow’.

Until the courts
In 2009, Marisol Aguirre sued Meier for apportionment of food. Said lawsuit was won by the popular “Zorro” in 2015, resulting in the actor only having to pay a monthly pension of 10,240 nuevos soles and not the 12,240 that he had been contributing.
In 2010, Aguirre sued her ex-husband again, but this time for aggravated defamation, since he had insulted her on national television. As compensation, the remembered ‘Sparrow’ asked for the figure of one million soles.
