YES, the Barba's are related to Vicente Fernandez.
My grandpa, Rodolfo Barba (Sept 2,1938-June 19, 2008) was Vicente's First cousin.
There is a long story regarding why the Barba's and Vicente are not close or for that reason that Vicente never mentions us but for those who went to the wedding that day many years ago...you all know exactly why.....
Yes he came froma poor family and became rich and famous...but WE BARBA's come from STRONG roots....and YESSSS we are proud of Chente!!! BUT we are also PROUD to be a BARBA
