Jenni Rivera was preparing to purchase the LearJet responsible for the death of her and six others!
According to Starwood exec Christian Esquino, the singer was ready to shell out $250k on the aircraft to transfer the title into her name!
He swears Jenni basically took the plane out for a test drive the weekend it crashed.
Then again, Christian was convicted of drug-trafficking and counterfeiting government inspection stamps and is still currently wanted for questioning regarding his affiliation with the plane.
So we're unsure what to believe!
All we know at this point is that we're still indescribably sad over the loss of the Mexican-American singer.
