Chiquis Rivera has opened up about the one thing that kept her mother, Jenni Rivera, and her apart: the alleged affair Chiquis had with her stepfather, Esteban Loaiza.
According to The Huffington Post, during an interview with Azteca América, Chiquis revealed that she and her mother hadn't spoken in months prior to her tragic accident.
“The world and my family lost Jenni on December 9, I lost my mother two months before on October 2," Chiquis said. "It was a misunderstanding. My world ended on that day."
The feud between Jenni and her daughter all began when Jenni was told that Chiquis had been having an affair with her stepfather Loaiza.
“I don’t understand how the rumor got started, this horrible thing that has caused so much suffering. [Loaiza] has always been very respectful towards me and me with him," she said.
"There were so many people filling her head with things. If there’s a problem with someone you should ask them directly, and that’s something she didn’t do."
Chiquis went on to explain to Azteca América that she didn't understand why people made up these lies to her mother and that the worst part of all is that Jenni passed without them reconciling.
“Every day I have to live with this, no one knows the pain I carry, especially because it was a misunderstanding," she explained while in tears.
"There were so many people in the middle that caused so much pain, so many problems that it was impossible not to be upset.”
Despite a feud which never officially ended, Chiquis will be portraying La Diva de la Banda in an upcoming biopic.
