Jenni Rivera believed to be dead following plane crash
Transportation and communication minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza says that the plane was found in Nuevo Leon state, without survivors. "There is nothing recognizable, neither material nor human [in the wreckage]," he says.
Rivera gave a press conference the day before her death, in which she was asked about her recent divorce from Major League Baseball pitcher Esteban Loaiza. "I am a woman like any other and ugly things happen to me like any other woman," she said. "The number of times I have fallen down is the number of times I have gotten up."
Rivera had recently signed on to star an ABC comedy pilot called "Jenni," about a single Latina mother running a family business. She was 43, and is survived by five children and two grandchildren.
