The saga of Jenni Rivera's tragic, untimely death continues.
On Monday, relatives of both Rivera and her entourage filed a lawsuit against Starwood Management, Inc., who owned the Learjet 25 that crashed in Northern Mexico in December 2012. Also listed in the suit are Bombardier Inc. and Learjet Inc., companies who serviced the jet.

The plane — which was on route to Toluca, Mexico — plunged over 28,000 feet, killing both pilots and 5 passengers.
The negligence case was filed by attorneys representing family members of both the Latin superstar as well as the other victims, including her hairstylist, publicist, and makeup artist.
Starwood has yet to release a statement.
The horrific accident stirred up controversy when it was reported that not only was the plane 43-years-old and in disrepair, but that the pilots were not authorized to fly at that time and altitude.
The Grammy-nominated singer, who died at the age of 43, has sold over 20 million records, making her one of the best selling Mexican music artists of all time.
We offer our deepest condolences to family members of the perished, and hope that this case gets sorted out quickly and peacefully.
