Michael Rivera:

In September 2006, the judge granted conditional freedom to José Trinidad Marín, after paying a bail of 1 million dollars, this caused Trino Marín to make fun of Lupillo Rivera in court, and his son Michael would go on a rampage against his father.

Jenni’s last child is her son Michael who was born in 1991 with José as his dad. Michael originally had his father’s surname, but it appears he now uses his mother’s surname, via Instagram. Although he may not be a musician like his mother or sisters, he is an artist in the truest sense of the word: he is a painter! He has participated in NBC and the NFL CANVAS Competition, which is set to “plot a path to Super Bowl LVI”. 

He showcased many of his amazing signs and murals, including the one he made for CANVAS on his Instagram. In addition to his paintings, he occasionally posts pictures of his adorable daughter Luna.

Chiquis Rivera:

Jenni’s first child better known by the name Chiquis was born Janney Marín Rivera in June 1985, when the singer was still a teenager. Chiquis’s mom Jenni went on to get married to her daughter’s father: José Trinidad Marín. 

Jenni’s eldest daughter followed in her mother’s footsteps and pursued her own singing career. She has three albums to her name, the most recent being the 2020 Playlist. Chiquis also made a career in reality TV shows, acting in several programs focused on her life. The most recent was 2018 ‘s Os Riveras, which she also produced.

For her part, Chiquis Rivera recounted for Imagen website how her father sexually abused her from the age of 8 to 12: “The kids were coming from the beach and when I went into the bathroom to take a bath to make sure to get the sand off me, my father came in and sat me naked between his legs. It happened at that place for the first time.”

Chiquis stated that she has not spoken to him since his mother’s death, as he did not offer condolences. On March 4, 2010, Trino requested for the first time the reduction of his sentence and release on bail for good behavior, but the judge denied it. A second attempt (which was also rejected) was made on June 26, 2013, this coincided with Chiquis’s 28th birthday. In 2018, the news spread that he would be released, but it was a simple rumor. Now the followers of this news are keeping an eye on when Trino Marín will be released from prison and if he will try to ask for his freedom again.

Just last year, when Chiquis celebrated her wedding with Lorenzo Méndez, the singer received a call from her father from prison and showed that over the years she learned to forgive: “He is my biological father. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here, “she said before the cameras of her reality show.

Fortunately, Chiquis and Rosie have been able to continue with their lives and have turned the page. Now  Rosie lives an incredible marriage next to Abel and  Chiquis has promoted her artistic career despite the fact that her scandals persecute her.


After José’s divorce, Jenni married Juan Lopez in 1997 and gave birth to their first daughter Jenicka, 23, in October 1997. 

Jennika proved to be something of a fashionista and beauty guru. She used to run a Youtube Channel, where she showed off some of her looks and makeup skills, but her latest video was uploaded in December 2020. Even though she is no longer a YouTuber, she still shows off some of her amazing looks on Instagram.

Johnny Lopez:

In February 2001, Jenni gave birth to her youngest son Johnny.  Johnny is also a musician and goes by the name of five (perhaps because he was Jenni’s fifth child). Johnny became bisexual in 2017 after revealing that he had been in a relationship with a man for two years according to People magazine.

Esteban Loaiza:

Last year in early 2021, it was announced that Jenni Rivera’s widower Esteban Loaiza will leave the prison where he is serving a sentence for drug trafficking. Now many wonder when Esteban Loaiza will be released from prison.

According to the information given by the singer Chiquis Rivera, Esteban Loaiza’s release will be in the month of August 2021. The ex-husband of Chiquis Rivera, Lorenzo Méndez assured him that he has kept in touch with the former pitcher and although he did not give him a day, he did make the month clear. Only in August of last year had the rumor spread that Loaiza would be released, however, he denied it. It should be remembered that Loaiza was sentenced to 36 months in prison and five years of probation. 

It was in 2019 that the Mexican ex-player Esteban Loaiza was sentenced to three years in prison and five years of probation on drug trafficking charges. The former major league pitcher was booked into federal prison on April 19 in San Diego.

Esteban Loaiza pleaded guilty to possessing 20 kilos of cocaine in August 2018, and admitted that  he intended to distribute it. Esteban Loaiza was quickly arrested after this in February by the police after a surveillance operation. 

The former major league pitcher was leaving the parking lot of his house, in Imperial Beach, on the border of San Diego and Tijuana, when he was arrested. A dog sniffed out the cocaine the Mexican ex-player was carrying in 20 packages in the compartment of his vehicle.

At that time, since the sentence he received of three years and five years of probation was less than the minimum prison term of 10 years, it was said that Esteban Loaiza had broken the law and the seriousness of the crime warranted.

So where is he now? Well, it only remains to wait for Estaban Loaiza to be released from prison to see if he gives statements about his time in prison, however this is something very unlikely because, during the seven months that the ex-thrower was under house arrest.

The former major league pitcher remained silent and both he and his attorney, Janice Deaton, declined to comment.
