Jenni Rivera's Brother Describes Morning Of Crash

| Filed under: LatinoliciousMusic MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad


We can't even begin to imagine what Jenni Rivera's family is going through after such a devestating event!

The Mexican-American singer's small Learjet — which we hear has a history of malfunction! — crashed Sunday morning in Mexico, and even though Jenni's body has yet to be identified, her driver's license was found near the accident site.

When talking to reporters outside the family's home in Lakewood, CA on Sunday, Jenni's brother Pedro Rivera Jr expressed:

"We are feeling devastated. It's a devastation to the family. We were having a beautiful morning and then we received the news from my brother. 'Go see mom because we can't find Jenni's plane, we don't know what's happened to her.'

That's when it started, really early at nine in the morning. I came to my mom's house. We started getting the news. Then at around 5 p.m., we got confirmation that she was gone. It was so painful.

When we do find out what has happened with the body, because they have to get it out of the woods there. As soon as they get the bodies out and we receive the news that they're there, all the family is gonna fly over there and bring our sister back.

We don't know how to thank you for all the love you gave to Jenni and to all the family. It is just so special to have you guys as fans.

Life is like that. We live and we die. We may be sad, but when God has the last word for all of us in our last days, it's time to go. And this was the way Jenni had to go."

The family is currently all together except for Jenni's brother Lupillo, who is flying in from North Carolina.

So many prayers for Jenni's family!

She was an incredible talent and seemed like such a warm spirit. She will be missed by many!

    Probably i didn't actually listened to her, but everyone knew that she was a great person. And she deserves a lot of flowers!!!! because the way she died is actually one of the most terrifying. And not only her, the other people that was with her. SO, RIP JENNY AND PEOPLE AT THE PLANE:(

    SHE died i npeace people think she is not dead beccause they havent found her body

  21. Legal American says – reply to this


    Who cares! Learn English and stop ruining our country. I never heard of her, neither have most Legal Americans. Like most of you, she had a ton of kids VERY EARLY on her life that welfare would have supported had she been a citizen of America and not popular. LEAVE NOW!!!!

    Thank You Perez for posting latino news. I love how you can still connect to your roots and hope you keep posting stuff. How about Perezhilton latino page? but either way your page is great.
    Her death was very tragic and no matter what she was a human being. RIP to her and all the people that died with her in the plane crash.

  23. legalamericanALSO says – reply to this


    I know plenty of white young people with multiple children. Whats her ethnic background got to do with it. Also, Jenni knew English and she actually even had a reality TV show on mun2 that was based on her mexican/american family and her career. If you @legalamerican had an ounce of brain you would know this. If you have nothing nice to say about something as serious as death, at least have enough respect to not say any

  24. legalamericanALSO says – reply to this


    *anything at all.

    Jenni you will truly be missed but never forgotten. My deepest condolences go out to the Rivera family and the families of the other victims. You touched my life Jenni like you have no idea. You are a true legend to the Mexican Music Industry, there will never be another artist like you or take your place. You will forever be the DIVA of Banda. Miss you and love you Vanessa ur #1 fan :(

    Re: Legal American – Leave now? Learn OUR country and it's roots! From what I remember this country was based on immigrants and even then it belonged to the NATIVE AMERICANS. So before you go commenting around on sites about how immigrants should leave remember those who get your food, clean your lawns and yes even your house and toilet because most of you americans are fucking lazy. I am a U.S Citizen and I knew who she was! So before you go posting shit get the fuck out and your story straight.

  27. Jessica says – reply to this


    @LegalAmerican she was a US CITIZEN you moron. Why don't you do some research before opening your pathetic mouth. On another note… I wasn't a fan but the woman is human and my condolences go to her family who I'm sure are going through a devastating time.

    Re: Legal American – She WAS born in California, she grew up here. I hate ignorant people like you. Please GTFO. If you didn't have anything respectful to say, please leave. And she was famous and popular, more famous than you'll EVER be.

    R.I.P Jenni.
