Jenni Rivera was estranged from her eldest daughter at the time of the super star’s tragic death in a plane crash late last year, Janney “Chiquis” Marin admits to Azteca America TV.
“The world and my family lost Jenni on Dec. 9; I lost my mother two months before,” said the 28-year-old, whose father is Jenni’s ex husband, Jose Trinidad Marin, who was convicted of sexually molesting Chiquis in 2007 and sentenced to 31 years. She went on to say that Rivera had filed for divorce from her third husband, former MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza, just one day before she died, thinking that Chiquis was having an affair with him.“There were so many people filling her head with things,” she continued, adding that it was a “misunderstanding.”
Harry vs. King
Harry Belafonte has sued the estate of Martin Luther King Jr. over the fate of three documents he tried to sell at auction. The documents are an outline of a Vietnam War speech by King, notes to a speech King never got to deliver in Memphis and a condolence letter from President Lyndon B. Johnson to King’s wife after the civil rights leader’s 1968 assassination. Belafonte was preparing to auction his friend’s items in 2008 when the estate “astonishingly” blocked it, the suit in NYC alleges.
