Jenni Rivera's Daughter, Jacqie, Announces Divorce With Heartfelt Message

Jenni Rivera's daughter, Jacqie, broke the sad news to all of her followers that she is divorcing her husband. Fans of "The Riveras" show on Universo grew to love the couple and sadly they are breaking up. "To my dear followers, as you know, I have made i‎t a point to include you guys in the the best and worst moments of my life," she said in a heartfelt message on Instagram. "I don't want to leave you behind on this. Mike and I are in the process of our divorce. The people closest to me already know and their support has been such a great help. But, I didn’t want to leave you all out as you all have also been with me through all moments of my life."

Any breakup is devastating in a person's life and it's only more difficult when there are children involved as it is this case. Jacqie asks for respect during this process. "As respect to both Mike and I and our families, I ask that you all kindly refrain from posting any comments regarding the divorce," she added. "Whether they be sad, religious, or your personal opinions. As I’m sure many of you can understand, divorces are between two people. And even though we are public figures. I want to protect the little privacy we do have not only for mikes and my heart but mainly for our kids."

Jacqie makes sure to let all of her followers know she is only making this public to be transparent, but for now she wishes to remain silent on the reasons of her split. "I am simply posting this because I care for you all and I know many of you have had questions and concerns about the status of our relationship," she continued. "I wanted to be the one to confirm to you, all in the efforts to silence any doubts. We will continue to be friends in order to provide as amazing parents to our children. At this time, I have decided to disclose no further information. I simply ask for your love and prayers in this new season of both our lives."

The Rivera children were recently in the news as well when youngest sibling Johnny López came out after photos of him and his boyfriend went viral on social media. Days after news broke, he confronted the situation and admitted he had been struggling with his sexuality for a long time. "I’ve been dealing with this part of myself for a long time now. Me and Joaquín -tomorrow is actually our 2 year anniversary- we’ve been back together for about 5 months now," he said in a video posted online. "We were split for about a year and a half and in that time I did experiment with girls and I tried different things here and there and I still don’t know my preference personally but I do know that I love this person a lot. Ive been in love with him for about two years now and I’m happy, I’m really happy, and it’s the happiest I’ve ever been."
