Singer, dancer Iris Chacon announces divorce

Puerto Rican singer and dancer Iris Chacon announced her divorce Monday from musician Junno Faria. 



The 80s star was married to Faria for nearly 40 years. 



"She was awesome, of course I remember her," News 12 viewer Raul says on Facebook. "One of the few reasons I watched Spanish TV, back then I was just a kid, but she was hard to ignore."



The couple released a statement saying that after long consideration, they have decided to mutually end their marriage, remain as friends and asked for privacy during this time.
