Jenni Rivera's life of generosity & drama
The devotion that fans of Jenni Rivera have toward the late Diva de la Banda stems not just from her songs, but from the passion with which she lived all aspects of her life. That authenticity that so many times got her in trouble also inspired her, particularly when it came to her charity work and her determination to finish school. She gave herself 100 percent to all aspects of her life.
With her nonprofit, the Jenni Rivera Love Foundation, the singer helped countless people, not just battered women victims of domestic violence. In the last weeks she had gone head-to-head against her soon-to-be ex-husband Esteban Loaiza, because she wanted to auction off her engagement ring to finance cancer treatment for a young girl suffering from leukemina and his legal team refused.

Her three husbands
The public started to know Jenni, the woman, when accusations against her first husband surfaced. He was charged with sexually abusing her oldest daughter, Chiquis, and Jenni's own sister, Rosie. A weaker woman would have swept that scandal under the rug, but La Diva de la Banda accused José Trinidad Marin to the police and she didn't rest until she saw him in jail, when he was convicted of sexual assault in 2006.
Jenni's second husband, Juan Lopez, also made headlines for his criminal activities; he was imprisoned for drug trafficking in 2007, before he died of pneumonia in jail in 2009.
Jenni's third husband, Esteban Loaiza, also had rumors swirling, for mismanagement of funds and even that he was having an affair with oldest daughter, Chiquis, something Chiquis has vehemently denied.
