Drama: Jenni Rivera
The Banda Queen reigns supreme in our list of drama divas. Let’s count the stars in her controversy crown: She recently discovered that she has a half-brother, the product of her father’s infidelity. Bottom feeder Claudia Vasquez, girlfriend of Jennifer Lopez ‘s ex, Ojani Noa, is now claiming that the singer has owed her $20,000 for years. Speaking of $20,000, that’s how much Rivera claimed she was carrying at Mexico City International Airport last year, when she was really carrying $52,167, landing her in legal trouble. She and her brother Juan have gotten into physical fights with rowdy fans at concerts—complete with hair pulling, punching and beer dousings. Not all her scandals are her doing. In 2006, her ex-husband Jose Trinidad Marin was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison for raping their daughter Chiquis and a sister-in-law; Rivera’s son Michael, 19, was charged with having sex with a minor last year. And then there’s that virtuoso sex tape of Rivera and a bandmate, stolen from her home and splayed across the Internet. Girlfriend needs a despojo, quick.
