Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera believed dead after plane crash
Learjet 25 was carrying six other people from Monterrey to Toluca and authorities say there appear to be no survivors
The wreckage of a small plane believed to be carrying Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera was found in northern Mexico on Sunday and there are no apparent survivors, authorities have said.
The Mexican transportation and communications minister, Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, said that “everything points towards” it being the US-registered Learjet 25 that was carrying Rivera and six other people from Monterrey en route to Toluca, Mexico. The plane had gone missing after takeoff early on Sunday.
“There is nothing recognisable, neither material nor human in the wreckage,” Ruiz Esparza told the Televisa network.
Authorities have not confirmed that Rivera was among the dead.
Jorge Domene, spokesman for the government of Nuevo León, said the plane left Monterrey about 3:30am after Rivera gave a concert there and aviation authorities lost contact about 10 minutes later. It had been scheduled to arrive in Toluca, outside Mexico City, about an hour later.
Also on board the plane were her publicist, lawyer, makeup artist and the flight crew.
The 43-year-old, who was born and raised in Long Beach, California, is one of the biggest stars of the Mexican regional music style known as grupero, which is influenced by the norteno, cumbia and ranchera styles.
Also known as diva de la banda, Rivera was beloved by fans on both sides of the border for such songs as De Contrabando and La Gran Señora.
She recently won two Billboard Mexican music awards: female artist of the year and banda album of the year for Joyas Prestadas.The singer, businesswoman and actor appeared in the indie film Filly Brown, as the incarcerated mother of Filly Brown, and has her own reality shows including I Love Jenni and Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis & Raq-C and her daughter’s Chiquis ‘n Control.
Rivera had given a concert before thousands of fans in Monterrey on Saturday night. After the concert she gave a press conference during which she spoke of her emotional state following her recent divorce from former Major League Baseball pitcher Esteban Loaiza, who played for teams including the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers.
“I can’t get caught up in the negative because that destroys you. Perhaps trying to move away from my problems and focus on the positive is the best I can do. I am a woman like any other and ugly things happen to me like any other woman,” she said on Saturday night. “The number of times I have fallen down is the number of times I have gotten up.”
The mother of five children and grandmother of two had announced in October that she was divorcing Loaiza after two years of marriage. It was her third.
