Becky G’s famous footballer fiancé Sebastián Lletget has broken his silence after rumours surfaced he cheated on the singer just three months after proposing.
The 30-year-old footballer, who plays for FC Dallas, opened up in a rare and lengthy text post on Instagram, where he revealed he’d been hiding something from fans and those close to him.
“Over the last few weeks, during a moment I regret deeply, a 10-minute lapse in judgment resulted in an extortion plot,” he revealed.

“Since this person did not get what they wanted it has now become a public social media spectacle filled with more lies than any truth and false posts aimed at the love of my life, the one person who I should never take for granted or put at risk.”
Lletget called the person an “anonymous internet stalker” who claims to have met him, and says the incident has served as “a wake-up call”.
The post comes after rumours swirled that the soccer star had cheated on the MAMIII singer, 26. According to Latino news site Mitú, an anonymous woman shared audio messages, direct messages, and videos on Instagram alleging the soccer player had cheated on Becky G.
The woman reportedly claimed in her posts, “Sebastian, your boyfriend, cheated on you in February and I have all the proof. I can send them to you privately. A lot of the press is contacting me because I will not remain silent.”
The incident has proved messy, and now seemingly forced Lletget to share this emotional apology, filled with promises to work on himself.
“I can’t keep running from demons,” he wrote. “I know that any actions made that put us here should have never happened to begin with. Pushing right up to the very boundaries of lines that should never be crossed only hurts me and the people I love most.”

Lletget revealed he has now committed to a “mental wellness program” to work on his “anger and mental health issues” which appear to be causing problems for him and his new fiancée. He did not directly address the cheating allegations or deny them.
The pair, who started dating in 2016, only recently announced their engagement in December last year.
The Break a Sweat singer, 25, announced the happy news in a sweet Instagram post, where she flashed her new engagement ring.
“Our spot forever,” she captioned a photo of the proposal and ring shot.
