- Does Lupillo have photos of Jenni Rivera’s body?
- His controversial admission.
- What did Gustavo Rivera say?
December 9, 2012 is a date that fans of singer Jenni Rivera will never forget.
After giving an unforgettable concert in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, La Diva de la Banda was killed in a plane crash.
To this day, much has been said about this tragic event, although surely there are several things her family and loved ones still haven’t revealed.
Some years ago, her brother Lupillo Rivera, who is also a singer, admitted to having video and photos of Jenni Rivera’s body.
«I don’t need to see the remains»
In an interview with Lourdes Stephen for Univisión some years ago, Lupillo Rivera made an unexpected admission.
To begin with, the singer revealed that the U.S. government designated him responsible for transporting his sister’s body from Mexico to California.
«You know what? I trust in their work. I don’t need to see the remains. If the DNA matches, I accept that test,» he said.
The ‘Grandes Ligas’ singer said this to the government and the coroner.
Jenni Rivera told him she didn’t want anyone to see her body if she died
In the same interview, where he admitted to having video and photos of Jenni Rivera’s body, Lupillo Rivera said something else.
Belinda’s ex-husband said that his sister told him that if anything happened to her, she «didn’t want anyone to see her.»
He also stated that he had every right to keep an photo of La Diva de la Banda as he last saw her.
«My family opened my sister’s coffin out of ambition, you’ll know why,» he said.
Gustavo Rivera took the photos… and the video
Weeks after Lupillo Rivera’s controversial statement, several members of the Rivera Family spoke out.
Gustavo Rivera surprised everyone with his statement to journalist Erika de la Garza on Hablando Claro.
Jenni’s brother stated that he was the one who took photos and a video of the site where the singer’s plane crashed.
«I was the one who took the photos, I’m the only one who recorded a video, I’m the only one who has them and the only one who can use them,» he said.
Did Gustavo contradict Lupillo Rivera?
What Gustavo said contradicts Lupillo Rivera’s statement that he was the only one with photos of Jenni Rivera’s body.
Gustavo told Erika de la Garza that, despite having financial problems at the time, he did not sell these images.
«Never, not once, have I said, ‘I’m going to sell something of this’ to make money. And I could do it, but that’s not mine; it belongs to them (Jenni’s children).»
Rosie Rivera supported him and even thanked him, as well as Juan, who had to identify Jenni’s body parts.
«It was the last day I saw my sister»
Lupillo Rivera shared a video of his last performance with Jenni Rivera on social media,
«I was very happy because she is my sister, and that’s good,» he said, also revealing that he gave her advice on several occasions.
Although many claim otherwise, the reality is that the siblings always had a good relationship.
