Did Roberto clemente have a girlfriend?

The rumors are that yes, he had a girlfriend. In fact, on the night of his death, he was flying to meet with his girlfriend after having a fight with his wife. In Puerto Rico, New Year's Eve is a huge holiday that is spent with close family. For Roberto Clemente to decide that he was going to fly on New Year's Eve to go anywhere, is highly implausible. He was, however, a great humanitarian. Thus, when he died, his manager developed the plausible cover story that he was on a mission to help the people of Nicaragua after an earthquake. The earthquake occured on Dec. 23rd. So, one would wonder why Roberto Clemente waited 1 week to go to help the people of Nicaragua on the day of one of the most celebrated holidays in Puerto Rico.
