Wealth and Mansion: In 2014, Angelica made headlines when it was revealed that a Mexican business tycoon named Juan Armando Hinojosa Cantu, who earned his fortune off government contracts, had given the actress a $7 million mansion. The tycoon reportedly received $3.5 billion worth of government contracts from Pena Nieto's administration, many of which were given without competitor bids. Angelica would later claim that the $7 million house was not a gift but a loan that would be paid back with her own acting earnings. A Mexican financial outlet investigated how much the typical soap actress earns at Angelica's former employer and concluded the highest-paid stars earned 5 – 8 million pesos per year. That's the same as around $265,000 – $500,000 per year. Actors are also typically signed-on for 5 year exclusive contracts. The implication here being that it would be extremely hard to understand how Angelica could have enough personal wealth to afford a $7 million mansion.
