Carlos Marin’s former wife, Maria Marin, has admitted that she called Carlos Marin to tell him she was sorry and felt it.

Geraldine Larrosa, a Madrid baritone killed in a Covid fight last week, arrived today at the Madrid funeral home dressed in black.

Geraldine, who kept close contact with Carlos despite their 2009 split, was overcome with emotion as she recounted her final FaceTime call.

She stated that before he was intubated, the doctor said good-bye to her because he knew it wasn’t possible to make it through. This was my most painful image. 

“He called and stated that he loves me deeply and thought I was the best woman he had ever known. Then a few days later, he asked me to help his family.

The singer, who goes by the stage name Innocence, said Carlos will 'always be the great love of my life'

Innocence is the singer who said that Carlos would be her great love forever.

French-born Carlos performed Bohemian Rhapsody with Carlos on New Years Eve. It was recorded and will be shown despite Carlos’s untimely passing. 

“He was kind and generous, the best artist of Spain and all the world. It’s still unbelievable to me what has happened. 

“I will continue fighting for the dreams of his and our shared dreams. He is my hero.  

Geraldine was accompanied by family including her nine-year-old daughter Scarlett with her new partner Sergio Arce who Carlos was godfather to as she arrived at the Saint Isidore Funeral Home hours before the start of the public wake.  

Last night, Geraldine posted on social media that “Tomorrow will be the most sad day of my entire life.” 

Following his death on December 19, at Manchester Royal Hospital, the 44-year old singer/actress described him as her ‘great love’.

After the condition of the 53 year-old Innocence, a French-born musician, Innocence flew to Britain. He was then admitted to hospital and ended up in an intubated coma. 

Her family was among the first to arrive at a private wake at 10:30am. The funeral home will be open to mourners who wish to offer their final respects at the end of this afternoon at 4pm. 

Carlos’ sister Rosa and mother Magdalena Menchero, along with his bandmates Sebastian Izambard, Carlos and Urs Buhler, helped to repatriate him from the UK.

Rosa announced last week that the singer will be buried wearing the Armani suit he donned onstage at concerts around the globe. However, his coffin is to be sealed at the wake according to Covid regulations.

Fans will be able to pay tribute to the baritone, who was one of four classically-trained singers forming part of the Simon Cowell-created crossover group Il Divo. He will be laid to rest on Tuesday after a public wake in Madrid (Marin pictured right in 2019)

To say farewell, his family organized a public wake at 8pm. 

Carlos’s funeral will take place tomorrow with a mass. He is to have his ashes cremated and his remains deposited at Our Lady of Almudena Cemetery in Madrid. It is also the largest cemetery in Madrid. 

In a demonstration of their great love, Geraldine said last week that she knew but would like to repeat it because the world needs to hear. 

“Carlos Marin is and will always remain my great love. He is the most kind and generous man in the entire world. 

In the midst of uncertainty about what his family will do after his passing, his wake takes place.

Rosa ended the speculation last week about Carlos’s death, revealing that the Delta variant had infected his lungs. This left Carlos in an intensive care unit in an induced state. 

Alberto Martin, Carlos’ lawyer, helped to bring a crazed supporter to court, after she had written a string X-rated letters. This left him enduring many nights of death threats and sleepless nights. 

We don’t know what Carlos’ mother said to express her grief at losing him. 

“It is something that we will have to analyse once we have all of the medical documentation because we felt there was sufficient time to control his circumstances and improve them so he could pull through, and get his life saved. That was what was most important. 

In a Spanish television interview, he said that he didn’t believe this would be the case.

El Mundo published separate comments from the Madrid-based lawyer, adding: “The family aren’t happy with anything because it’s heartbroken. 

“We didn’t foresee this scenario, nor did we anticipate its evolution and the eventual outcome. 

“We don’t know why he went down. His lungs had been functioning normally, and he was improving. But suddenly it all happened. 

“The outcome of the intubation was fatal. 

“I have heard Carlos’ mom say that, if he’d been there, he might have saved his life. 

“When we have access to the medical reports, we’ll see why he’s not pulling through.”
