This is just so brave.
Not only did Jenni Rivera's eldest daughter Chiquis Rivera have to deal with the pain from her mother's unexpected death, but also all the vicious rumors that circulated about her family.
In a just-released memoir titled Forgiveness (Perdon), Chiquis reveals that she hadn't spoken to her superstar singer mom in the two months leading up to the plane crash that took Jenni's life:
"There was a distance … I think it's very normal in a relationship between a mother and a daughter."
Ch-ch-check out the EXCLUSIVE interview below, where Chiquis addresses the affair rumors, the sexual abuse she suffered from Jenni's first husband, Jose Trinidad Marin, and also some sweet memories with her mom before the fame.
Forgiveness is out now.
