Chris Perez Made Peace With Selena Quintanilla's Family
The announcement of Selena Quintanilla joining TikTok came days after her husband Chris Perez made peace with her family. Perez said he and the late Tejano star's family have worked out their differences after a long legal feud.
Selena Quintanilla's family earlier sued Perez and two companies over plans to create a miniseries based on his 2012 memoir, "To Selena, With Love."
Abraham Quintanilla, Selena's father, opposed the show and called the memoir an unauthorized book. On Tuesday, Perez tweeted that the legal dispute with the Quintanilla family had been "amicably resolved."
Perez went on to say that he and the Quintanilla family hope to work together to continue to honor and celebrate Selena's legacy.
Good news! I have amicably resolved my legal dispute with the Quintanilla family. Now that these issues are behind us, going forward, my hope, and the hope of the Quintanilla family, is for us to work together to continue to honor and celebrate the legacy of Selena.— Chris Perez (@ChrisPerezNow) September 14, 2021
Selena Quintanilla's Death
Selena Quintanilla tragically died on March 31, 1995. The well-known singer-songwriter was only 23 years old. Yolanda Saldivar, a fan, shot her in the back as she walked out of a room at the Days Inn Motel in Texas.
Saldivar was found guilty in October 1995, and she was sentenced to a maximum of life in prison for first-degree murder.
Selena's killer is currently in Mountain View Prison in Texas, which is a maximum-security women's prison. She's reportedly eligible for parole on March 20, 2025.
The Latina superstar's father earlier said they do not care if Selena's killer will be released today. He noted that even Saldivar could be free, nothing could bring his daughter back.
