Is Gabriel Iglesias Dead?
A few years ago (2014) the stand-up comedian Iglesias was declared dead in both social and state media. The news of his death swept through the Internet, sending millions of his fans in mourning with messages of condolence that came from friends and fans around the world.
“Gabriel Iglesias, (born July 15, 1976), known professionally as Gabriel Iglesias and oddly enough as Fluffy, died this Friday for reasons yet to be confirmed, but it appears to be a health complication,” the state media reported, adding that the comedian died of type 2 diabetes.
Two days later, the stand-up comedian reacted to the death rumor that he was still alive in a highly humorous way. In the message on both his Facebook and Twitter pages, Iglesias also thanked his friends, family, and fans for all they have done for him over the years.
Gabriel Iglesias was enjoying his North American tour at the time, as seen in the sitcom “Cristela”, which was broadcast on ABC. The comedian also said that the vertigo of death was proof that his career was going well. This period also led him to network with his recurring role in the ABC hit comedy “Cristela” in television sitcoms, and the next year he joined the ranks of comedians such as Andrew Dice Clay, Steve Martin, Kevin Hart, and Aziz Ansari, is one of the few comedians to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Gabriel Iglesias’ Mom, Dad, And House
Gabriel was born the son of Esther Pinuelas Mendez and Jesus Iglesias, both from California. The Mexican-American comedian apparently grew up without a father. His father was not even present at his birth. Although not much is known about his father Jesus, his mother Esther fought single-handedly to raise him with five of his older siblings. Since his father was not in the picture, his mother decided to change the spelling of his last name. She put a “c” in place of the “s” in his last name. Esther was born on August 25, 1934, in California, USA. However, she died on May 1, 2012, at the age of 78. She was buried in Los Angeles County, California, USA.
Fluffy, whose jokes are mainly based on Mexican-American culture and jokes about obesity, earned millions of dollars by transforming aspects of everyday life into something heartwarmingly funny and entertaining.
Gabriel lives in Long Beach, California with his girlfriend Claudia Valdez and her child Frankie. He also owns a Chihuahua named Bruno. In 2006, the comedian bought a house worth about $1.4 million. The 14,404 square foot Signal Hill property could be part of the $15 million fortune he made with Magic Mike XXL. Recently he posted pictures of his 172 square foot bathroom, which he decorated with his favorite room. His net worth is currently just over $25 million.
“Whether I’m at home or on the road, in the lobby or on the plane, I’m never alone. When I’m in that bathroom, people leave me alone,” wrote the comedian. The bathroom has a remote-controlled TOTO toilet, but the whole house is powered by solar energy.
