After their marriage, the couple had two more children, Jaqueline and Micheal. Their rosy lives were loved by many fans.

However, all that glitters is not gold. The couple soon parted ways. Rivera filed for divorce in 1992 on the basis of physical and mental abuse.

A physical examination was conducted, and it turns out that he was assaulting their younger daughter, Jaqueline Rivera as well. A case was filed in 1997, and Trinidad Marin spent 9 years as a fugitive.

He was finally arrested in April 2006 and was convicted of sexual assault and rape and sentenced to more than 31 years in prison without parole.

It seemed that, finally, Rivera would get to have a proper life with her family. But fate had other plans, as Lopez was arrested for smuggling just mere two weeks after their wedding.

Rivera unconditionally supported him when he was incarnated for six weeks.

However, their marriage faced obstacles in the coming years, and soon the couple filed for a divorce in 2003. Rivera mentioned in her autobiography that in her marriage with Lopez, she knew about her husband’s infidelity.

His popularity was skyrocketing. They married in 2010, and on July 1, 2011, Loaiza and Rivera were honored with their own stars on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars.

Their happy marriage was marred with suspicions. The couple had trust issues, especially from Rivera’s side. She suspected her husband of having an affair with her eldest daughter.

This resulted in serious issues between the mother and daughter, which led to the duo not being on speaking terms. In fact, the rift was so deep that Rivera died without making amends with her daughter.

The couple’s divorce processing was at work when the singer died, so that makes Loaiza the widower of Jenni Rivera.
