BREAKING NEWS: Jenni Rivera's ex-husband Esteban Loaiza speaks out for first time!
Esteban Loaiza, ex-husband of Jenni Rivera (they were in the process of divorce, they are still technically married) has finally spoken out! Loaiza seemed moved and visibly tired when he spoke out to ask the family of La Diva de la Banda that they please return his calls so he can have more and true information about Jenni's death.
"I am still in disbelief, I want to know the truth, since her brothers, my brothers-in-law are there and they don't return my calls," said the former Major Leagues baseballer, who was married to Jenni for almost two years and since October has refused to respond to the divorce papers.
In exclusive statements made to Telemundo's Un Nuevo Día talk show, Loaiza said via phone. "I've called my mother-in-law and Pedro, but no one returns my calls. What we're going through right now is really hard," he said.
Loaiza, who the rumor mill has accused of their divorce due to misuse of their funds and infidelity (some say with Jenni's own daughter Chiquis), he refused to comment on the legal ramifications of Jenni's death, since they were not officially divorced yet. He did affirm that he wanted to wait until the situation is completely resolved.
"I won't actually believe she's gone until I get a call from them [her family]. So many things are said by the media and on the internet, I don't know what's true, we're all clinging on to hope like everyone, fans and family. None of us can believe what's happening. I'm just going to wait for their call," he concluded.
The truth is that we don't know if legally he's entitled to any of Jenni's fortune. The prenuptial agreement could be null and void after her death, especially since the divorce was never finalized. I hope with all my heart that Loaiza is a gentleman and does the right thing, and as he has his own fortune, he doesn't take a cent from hers, and what belongs to her kids.
Personally, I'd love to know what happened to end their marriage, and I hope he speaks out about that too. We all know that Jenni was strong and had overcome many things during her life, but this divorce seemed to be hitting her hard, especially with the connection--real or no--to Chiquis that was rumored.
And honestly, I'm not surprised the family isn't giving him the time of day.
