"He's very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women," she said.Later the Latina bombshell explained that she was joking. "It's funny, when I made those comments, it was really in a lighthearted, humorous way," she said. "I was surprised to see that it was taken so seriously in the press.""Gerard doesn't tell me what to do," she continued. "We discuss everything as a couple, as I imagine most partners do. We have a beautiful relationship and one of mutual trust."
