Jenni Rivera's Niece Rushed To Hospital After Car Accident


The Rivera family needs your prayers! 

Jenni Rivera's niece, Divine Rivera, was rushed to the hospital this weekend after she was hit by a car. Her father, Juan Rivera, shared the scary news via Instagram.

"On the way to work, @divinneee_ was run over!!!" he wrote. "It seems as though everything is fine, but right now they will operate on her. Chain of prayers for my girl please!!!" In the picture accompanying the post, Divine rests her eyes as she prepares for surgery.

Chiquis Rivera also asked fans for prayers for her cousin. "Thank God she's okay but please pray for my Tia @brendarivera1004, my tio @juanriveramusic and her siblings cuz I can only imagine how scared they were/are," she wrote. "I love you cousin!!! #DivineBeeStrong." 

According to Latin Post, Divine made a quick recovery, although she must wear a cast on her leg. Juan Rivera took to Instagram once again to thank fans for their support and well-wishes. "Hundreds and hundreds of messages and prayers and good vibes," he said. "Thank you to all for taking the time to think of my daughter!! She's out of surgery and doing well."
