Early life

Jenicka Lopez was born in the United States of America on October 3, 1997. She is the youngest child of a widely popular Latina couple, singer Jenni and Juan Lopez. She has four other siblings named Chiquis Rivera, Johnny Lopez, Jacquie Lopez, and Michael Lopez, with whom she shared her childhood.

Jenni’s children seem to have a strong bond on and off-camera. They have multiple photos of them indulged in outdoor activity, and chilling. Needless to say, they have their differences but every family does.

With the kind of fame and success Jenicka Lopez’s mother had in her career, she had all the things a person needs and desires. It also means jenicka and her siblings had a good life, food, cloth, and education.

However, nothing in life is for free. She must have had all the things she needed including media attention but I am sure the void in Jenicka’s life was that of her parent’s care and love. Jenni was a busy woman and had little time for family. Juan was an irresponsible father who was busy hustling.

That is one of the reasons why Jenicka was raised by her grandparents, Rosa Saavedra and Pedro Rivera.

Mother’s Career

Rivera officially started her singing career in 1992, when she sang a song on father’s day. But, in 1995, she officially released her first album. Jenni’s first album was named Chacalosa.

Despite tremendous success on her 1st album, Jenni had to face various hurdles on her success path because her career was in the Mexican music industry which was completely male-dominated.

In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Jenni revealed that: it was tough knocking on doors to get her music played on radio programs in L.A. She further revealed that they threw her CD in the trash right in front of her. 

However, Jenni was one tough woman. She was ambitious and determined. Nothing could stop her from achieving her goals and dreams. She wasn’t discouraged by the incident. Soon, she released an album named “We Are Rivera” and “Farewell to Selena.”

In 1995, famous Tejano singer Selena was murdered, which took the world by surprise, and that’s when Jenni decided to dedicated her album to her, naming it “Farewell to Selena.”

Furthermore, other commercially successful Mexican Latin pop singer’s albums include Simplemente, Fonovisa Record, and Dejate Amar. The versatile Rivera, after establishing herself in the music industry, tried her hands-on acting too.

Mother’s death

December 9, 2012, was a black day for the music industry because it had lost one of its precious gems. Fans worldwide were in complete shock after hearing Jenni Rivera and six other members died in a plane crash.

On December 31, 2012, Jenni’s dead body got a peaceful burial at All Souls Cemetery in Long Beach, California. Although she left us, she gave us plenty of art to remember her. Her first movie named “Filly Brown” got released after her death, which gained tremendous success commercially.

Jenicka Lopez and her family

Juan Lopez Pardo (father)

As controversial and prominent as Jenicka’s mother might have been, her father, Juan Lopez Pardo, was even more controversial but in a troublesome way.

Furthermore, Juan Lopez Pardo received a jail sentence for two years and six months.

In 2002, Jenicka’s parents parted ways, just after a year of welcoming a son named Johnny Angel into their world. The ending of her parents’ relationship must have been tragic but not as tragic as when her mom passed away in 2012.

Jenicka often shies away from delving into dating and relationship topics on her YouTube videos. It might be because of her parent’s relationship and her mother’s death trauma.
