No one saw it coming. Almost 9 years after the death of Jenni Rivera when leaving a concert in Monterrey, Nuevo León, in Mexico, details of her personal life are revealed. Mrs. Rosa talked about the her daughter’s reaction upon learning that she would divorce Don Pedro Rivera.
Through a video that is available on the Youtube channel of the music producer, also known as El Patriarca del Corrido. The details of a very shocking moment in the Rivera family, that to date continues to cause discomfort among its members, was shared.
How did Jenni Rivera react when she found out about her parents’ divorce?
On the verge of reaching 60 thousand views, this video begins by showing Mrs. Rosa saying that Jenni Rivera was not her spoiled daughter, since she had two (also referring to Rosie, the youngest daughter). “I can’t say that (she was) the best, but I can say that she was the one that supported me the most (in her divorce).”
Without being able to hold back her tears, The Great Lady, along with her ex-husband Don Pedro Rivera, wanted to make it clear that Jenni didn’t support her in her divorce, but rather supported her as a daughter: “When you are getting divorced or have a problem, you go to the person who has already gone through that problem.”
“Daughter, I’m going to get a divorce”
Mrs. Rosa recalled that she went to her daughter Jenni Rivera’s house to tell her that she would divorce her father. It should be remembered that Don Pedro Rivera cheated on her and even had a child out of wedlock. The other members of the family have almost no relationship with this child.
“She asked me why, that was the question she asked me. So I told her why and she was very angry, but she asked me what I needed. I told her that I needed a lawyer and it was the most expensive lawyer and she hired him for me. My children were not to blame for that divorce.”
Don Pedro Rivera’s discomfort when listening to Mrs. Rosa is more than evident
Until now, Don Pedro Rivera has just listened to Mrs. Rosa’s story. His discomfort is more than evident when he remembers how his daughter Jenni Rivera reacted when she found out the reason that led The Great Lady to ask for a divorce after more than 40 years of marriage.
“I made the decision, I think that when you’re older you have the decision in your hands, you have your ideas and your neurons are still fine. She supported me in everything, she called me, wrote to me and asked me how I was doing and took me on her tours because what she wanted was to see me.”
Mrs. Rosa confesses that she misses getting hugs and kisses from her daughter Jenni Rivera
“That’s why I tell you that I miss her hugs, her caresses, her support, but I know that she’s in a better place. I know where she is, I know that God took her and she wanted to sing to the Lord and the Lord told her: ‘let’s go and there you sing to me,’ shared Mrs. Rosa when she remembered her daughter Jenni Rivera, who today would be 52.
Before her tragic death, La Diva de la Banda only managed to record a couple of Christian songs, but her dream was to sing for this musical genre: “Jenni was my support, all the support for her mother, that’s her.” Finally, Don Pedro Rivera spoke…
“A very happy and very rebellious little girl”
In a calmer manner than Mrs. Rosa, Don Pedro Rivera said that his daughter was, “a very beautiful thing.” He also remembered her as a little girl who grew up to be, “very happy and very rebellious,” and had accompanied him to his rehearsals since she was 6 or 7 years old.
“She began to understand music from a young age because I took her to vocal rehearsals. She grew up, grew older and fell in love and at the age of 15 she left with Trino (Marín) and there began a lot of suffering. She became a real estate professional and sold a lot of houses around here and founded her company.”
Don Pedro Rivera admits that he scolded Jenni Rivera
The music producer, who will turn 79 next February, decided not to go into details about his divorce from Mrs. Rosa and preferred to continue telling anecdotes about La Diva de la Banda: “I scolded her once, she had a very strong personality, apart from that she was a very loving person who cared about every human being.”
“She took the time to call her children, her nephews, she would call everyone and she always comforted them, and even though she was very angry with me for what Rosa Amelia said (about her divorce), she always told me she would call and ask me if I needed anything and she would always say: ‘I love you, daddy’.”
They could not forget one of their children: Lupillo Rivera
Just as it has been stated that Jenni Rivera was Mrs. Rosa’s darling, for a long time it has been said that Don Pedro Rivera’s darling is his son Lupillo. Is it true? The other boys complain because they say he’s spoiled, he’s the favorite, and it’s not like that.”
“As Rosa Amelia says: ‘all children are loved’, it’s the same love, what happens is that one has to understand that they all have a very different personality, you must treat each one differently. I treat Juan one way, Gustavo another, Lupillo another, everyone.”
“Lupillo always wanted to hang out with me,” says Don Pedro Rivera.
The music producer said that since he was a child, Lupillo Rivera always wanted to hang out with him and made him sell cassettes in the neighborhood where they lived: “He was a very hard-working person and I admire him for that.” Next it was Mrs. Rosa’s turn to talk about “El toro del corrido”.
“Let’s say that Lupillo was the most ‘chipilón’, he was a crybaby, he didn’t like me to leave him alone at school, so I stayed there taking care of him. He was the most spoiled, dearest child. When Juan was born, Lupillo was 6 years old and suddenly I heard that both of them were crying because he was hitting him, he was jealous of him.”
“He helped me out a lot at work,” says Mrs. Rosa about Lupillo
Finally, Jenni Rivera’s mother said that Lupillo Rivera, like her other children, was a hard worker and he in particular helped her to take care of Juan. Ironically, the two brothers haven’t spoken to each other for several months.
“I don’t know whether to thank God or complain because (Lupillo) has been very much in love and there he failed in his heart with women, but the only thing left to say about him is that he has been very much in love and hopefully one day he will change because the other day I saw him and he just gave me a kiss,” concluded The Great Lady (TO SEE THE VIDEO CLICK HERE).
