Early career

The daughter of Humacao's very much respected undertaker Luis López, Adamari started her career at the age of six, alongside legendary Puerto Rican actress Johanna Rosaly and Venezuelan singer José Luis Rodríguez, El Puma, in the Telemundo Canal 2 production of the Cristina Bazan soap opera.

Her talent indicated a future superstar. WAPA-TV next chose her to play Iris Chacon and Daniel Guerrero's daughter in Yo sé que mentía. She was then nine years old, and was given one of the most important roles of the story. López became a household name.

A short, two chapter appearance on Vivir Para Ti followed in 1983, and after that, López decided to dedicate herself to her studies. She holds a B.A. in Communications from University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico.

Adulthood and fame

After reaching the age of majority, she came back, participating in several plays at Puerto Rico's Teatro Tapia, San Juan's premier and oldest theater, and getting the attention of Mexican producers.

She traveled to Mexico next, after the invitation by the producers to try out there, and became a superstar in that country as well, working in many top soap operas, including the national super hit Amigas y Rivales.

López also participated in Mujer, Casos de la Vida Real, where she played a victim of rape that later turned lesbian.

Recent years

In 2004, four-foot ten inch Lopez participated in the Mexican soap opera, "Mujer de Madera". During the recording of that soap opera, her father, Luis, a respected and successful undertaker, suffered a heart attack and had to be hospitalized and operated on. Lopez was given immediate permission to travel to Puerto Rico and be with her father for as long as she needed. Her father recuperated, but only five percent of his heart is currently working. Lopez had to return to Mexico after her father was released from the hospital, but she flew back to Puerto Rico every time that the filming schedule allowed her to.

Adamari's health

On March 22, 2005, Lopez held a press conference in San Juan, to announce that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Her boyfriend,Luis Fonsi, announced at the same press conference that he will cancel his 2005 international tour to be by her side. She is expected to recover; her cancer was caught at "stage 1", which is a very early stage, and it has not spread to other parts of her body.

On May 31, she underwent successful cancer surgery.

During 2006, is has been reported that she is cancer-free.

Personal life and relationships

Her private life has become a favorite subject of paparazzi and gossip magazines, and her breakup from actor Mauricio Islas was well published.

López is the wife of fellow Puerto Rican singing super star Luis Fonsi. She was involved in a mini scandal in Puerto Rico, where a camera man filmed her while she was leaving a swimming pool, which supposedly caused Fonsi's brother to allegedly beat the photographer up. Because of this, there is a claim in court against the Fonsi brothers. In 2006, Lopez and Fonsi announced they would be getting married during the summer of that year.

On June 3, 2006 López and Fonsi married in Puerto Rico.

López loves signing autographs for her fans and is always accessible. She is best friends with singer Millie Corretjer.
