Chiquis Rivera’s early life:

Her mother, Jenni Rivera
Her late mother, Jenni Rivera, was a very famous actress and singer in America. Chiquis and Jenni did not have a good relationship with each other. In October 2012, she and Jenni stopped talking to each other.
Sadly, Jenni Rivera died on December 9, 2012, in a plane crash. After Jenni Rivera departed, it was a really sad moment for Chiquis Rivera because she never got a chance to talk with Jenni and reconcile with her.
She dedicated a heartwarming tribute that she wrote herself to her mother, titled “Forgiveness,” hoping that her mother would forgive her for her blunders and bless her with motherly love from heaven.
She even wrote about the beautiful memories with her mother(her mother’s coffee-colored hair in a ponytail, her voice that made her calm and warm).
Her father, Jose Trinidad Marin
Chiquis’s father, Jose Trinidad Marin, used to work in a cafe and was living the life of a common person before he got married to Jenni Rivera. Chiquis and Jose Trinidad also did not have a good relationship, as Chiquis accused him of sexual abuse.
After being found guilty of abusing his daughter Jacqie and his ex-wife’s sister Rosie, he was given a sentence of 31 years in jail and is currently completing his sentence there.
She even mentions her father’s crimes in her biography, which was written by herself, that “for what he did to her as a little girl, she forgave him a thousand times, but she has not forgiven him for not even sending a condolence message after her mother died.”
Chiquis has four siblings: Jenicka, Johnny, Jacquie, and Michael. She is the guardian of her family after her mother passed away.

He even used to spit in her face and grab her by the neck at one point, so his brother had to stop him with a dumbbell.
As of now, there’s a rumor going on that she is dating Emilio Sanchez, but there’s no official announcement. Emilio is from Los Angeles, and he is a professional photographer. He has even worked with the team of famous singer and performer Becky G for years. He has a net worth of $1.5 million.

Chiquis’s relationship with her mother, Jenni Rivera
As everyone knows, Jenni and Chiquis did not have a good relationship. She said that even when she was just a child, Jenni used to shout at her and was very strict towards her.
Jenni even kicked her out of the house at one point, and Chiquis had to live at her grandparents’ house for two months. She also revealed that Jenni had also kicked her out of the will. She expressed that she was rather thankful for that.
They even stopped talking to each other in October. They did not reveal the reason behind their problem at the time, but after Jenni passed away, Chiquis revealed it in her autobiography.
The reason was that she believed that her daughter Chiquis snuck into her bedroom with Esteban(Jenni’s ex-husband) to have a sexual encounter. Both mother and daughter did not get a chance to sort out their personal issues.
In her book, she expressed that she has pardoned her mother for doubting her, and now she wants to reminisce only good memories with her and love her wholeheartedly.
She wants to put her mind at ease and be a better person so she can move forward and be free from that dark past memory and those tangled strings.
