Good morning chismosos! Grab your café and find out what we are buzzing about below:
- Despite recent online reports claiming that Jennifer Lopez would star and produce Jenni Rivera’s upcoming biopic, the late regional Mexican singer’s family has confirmed that the rumors are false.
According to several online sources, the lead contenders to star in the biopic include, J.Lo, former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, and actress Angelica Vale. It was also rumored that Jennifer’s Nuyorican Productions would produce the movie.
Lopez supposedly wants the film to be just as successful as the Selena biopic, which was Lopez’s claim to stardom thanks to her spot-on depiction of the Tejano singer, Selena Quintanilla, who was murdered in 1995. However, the Rivera family cleared up the hearsay with Access Hollywood and said, “The J.Lo rumor is not true.”
J.Lo opened up publically about Jenni's tragic passing in December and expressed to the Associated Press,"'Wow, it's just like a wake-up call for everybody'. It's tragic. She was so young... and she had five kids. It just wasn't her time."
We are glad the chismes were cleared up! Who do you think should star as Jenni Rivera in her upcoming biopic?
