Jenni Rivera and Chiquis
Image Wireimage

Janney "Chiquis" Marin Rivera has broken the silence after Jenni Rivera's death last year to clear the air. When the late singer died in December, it was wildly public that she was not on speaking terms with her oldest daughter. Although Rivera never revealed why she was separating from her husband Esteban Loaiza or had distanced herself from Chiquis, the rumor was that Jenni found out they were having an affair. "The world and my family lost Jenni on December 9, I lost my mother two months before on October 2. It was a misunderstanding," Marin Rivera told "Ventaneando" of the friction that existed with her mother before her untimely death. "My world ended that day. Every day I live with that and nobody knows the pain I carry, especially because it was a misunderstanding, there were so many people int he middle that caused so much pain, so many problems that it was impossible not to be upset." She also added, "When my mother got married, I knew she was not in love with Esteban because I lived so many things with my mom."

Chiquis doesn't know how the rumor got started and denies she had an affair with the former MLB pitcher. "I don't understand how the rumor got started, this horrible thing that has caused so much suffering," Marin said. "[Loaiza] has always been very respectful towards me and me with him. There were so many people filling her head with things. If there's a problem with someone you should ask them directly, and that's something she didn't do. To this day, my mother, in her heart, thinks I had something with Esteban." Jenni died in a tragic plane crash after a performance in Monterrey, Mexico on December 9. During that concert Rivera dedicated "Paloma Negra" to her daughter, which described the feud she had with her and left the hope for a reconciliation. This never happened and to Chiquis it is very upsetting that she never had the opportunity to make amends with her mother. "We didn't talk, there was no communication between us. I never got the opportunity to sit down with my mother and explain to her and every day I wake up and go to sleep with that pain."

Janney confirmed this week that she will be playing her mother in the official biopic. She told Univision that the family is giving her full support to play the music diva that will focus on Jenni at the peak of her career. Marin Rivera has already been taking vocal and acting lessons for months in preparations as she wants to follow-in her mother's footsteps and perform at "palenques." This project is one of many that are being produced around the life of Jenni, with another television series by Estrella TV in the works. The 10 part series was to feature Itati Cantoral as Rivera, but was ultimately let go from the project due to an alleged alcohol problem and diva antics on set.
