The Kingdom Tour
Coming off of a decade-long rivalry with fellow reggaeton star Daddy Yankee, Omar announced a co-headlining tour with the artist in 2015: The Kingdom Tour. The pair went on to perform four concerts in San Juan before holding shows in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, and Miami in 2016.

Fast & Furious
In 2009, Omar made his acting debut in the action film “Fast & Furious,” the fourth installment in the “Fast & Furious” film franchise.

Omar went on to reprise his role in the sequels “Fast Five,” “The Fate of the Furious,” and “F9.”
Omar got into legal trouble in 2007 when he and his management were sued by a Bolivian concert promoter after canceling a concert in La Paz. The promoter alleged that Omar had defrauded him and his organization of $70,000 related to the cancellation; Omar claimed he canceled because he was not given airfare in time to travel. The case was presented before a local judge, after which time both parties settled.
In 2008, Omar wed journalist and television weather forecaster Jackie Guerrido. The pair divorced in 2011. Omar has a son named Nicolas from a prior relationship.
