Matias LaFontaine is Jade LaFontaine's brother and one of the main antagonists in the series. Despite being her brother, he is always fighting with his sister Jade. Their family used to be very rich until their company went down and their money were gone, thus he doesn't have a home and was forced to live in his car.

Matias is portrayed by Joaquín Berthold.


Matias is a very arrogant and selfish person, but deep inside, he also cares a lot about his sister Jade and loves her, and even though they fight a lot, they still love each other. He wants Jade to marry Herman for his money so he can take it all for himself. He always puts himself first and never considers anyone else, apart from his sister Jade, sometimes. He always has a plan to ruin Herman and steal his money. He has been also arrested.

Jade LaFontaine


Main article: Jatias
S1 Episode 51 (5)

Matias and Jade are siblings and probably best friends. They are always fighting, but mostly, when they're together, they make up plans to get rid of Violetta and Angie, so that Jade can marry Herman and they will steal all his money to use it for themselves. Even though Jade ignores him, Matias still loves and cares about her. But probably, deep inside, Jade feels the same for him.

Jacinto LaFontaine


Matias has a difficult relationship with his father. Matias thinks that Jacinto always held him back when he was young, and didn't let him pursue his own ambitions. When Jacinto returns to Buenos Aires after the family company went bust, he doesn't tell Matias that he's back, because he knows that Matias would turn him into the police straight away.
