Jenni Rivera's mom, Doña Rosa Saavedra, announced today that she finally got in touch with the singer's widower, basebally player Esteban Loaiza. The family confirmed that he will more than likely take part in the public ceremony that will honor la Diva de la Banda's life.

Jenni's mom told press in front of their Lakewood, California home: "I told him that I loved him, God bless him and give him the peace that he has given me." The house has become the unofficial designated place for admirers to come pay their respects to the late Diva.

"I think he should be in the public ceremony...but the private one is another matter," said Jenni's oldest brother Pedro Rivera Jr., who has become the de facto spokesperson for the family. "I have nothing against him."

Although Jenni's mom and Pedro Jr. appear to have forgiven Loaiza for the pain he reportedly caused the singer, we don't know what the rest of the clan think, including Jenni's other siblings and kids. Unless he knows and is sure that the rest of the family feels the same way as Doña Rosa, I hope he's not thinking of attending Jenni's funeral. He shouldn't cause more pain to an already grieving family, but we'll see how they all get along during the public ceremony, which will be held at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles.

Up until this point, Loaiza has kept a really low profile, only giving some statements via telephone to Telemundo's El Nuevo Día morning show from his home in Michoacán, Mexico. "I can't even believe she's dead," he said, obviously moved when it was confirmed that Jenni's remains found at the crash scene had been positively identified.

In October, a few days after their second wedding anniversary, Jenni filed for divorce from Loaiza, for reasons still unknown, except that she herself called them "atrocities." The uncharacteristic secretive way in which she handled details and reasons for her divorce (as she was known to be very vocal and outspoken about many intimate details of her life) sparked a barrage of rumors, among them that Loaiza had stolen from the family and even that he may have had an affair with Jenni's oldest daughter, Chiquis.

Whether it's true or not that there was something going on with Jenni's daughter, I'd love to see what will happen when Loaiza and Chiquis meet. The only thing we know is that Jenni was estranged from both of them when she died. Guilt is a really heavy burden!

I really think that everyone is giving much importance to such a woman who was a gangster and harassed her fans and spoke horrible about her daughter who laundered money and was vulgar
HER MOM AGREE, and i don't see why not, after all she is not with us, and the only think he's going to do is paid respect, for the one, he once loved. the real truth, only they know. and why not to be sorry, after all this happens.

In response to Loraine's comment. This is about a mother of 5 that overcame so many obstacles to get where she was at. She overcame abuse, hardships and made it in other industries before making it in music. We have to remember that peoples legacy is always the negative and never the positive of our actions. She was a humanitarian above her vulgarity; she helped others by opening a foundation to care for Abused Women. Even though she was kind of “Ghetto”, she was professional in 99% of her shows, however the focus was always on the times where she reacted in a bad way. She is going to heaven because of the good she did in this world and because of the positive impact she made to the people who loved her. Besides, who are we to judge and criticize, I hope that you are at peace with yourself because to me it seems like you are not happy so you have to “Hate” on other people. Maybe one day many many many people with make a big deal about you when you are gone.
hey loraine tis women impacted alot of poeples life and just because you dont like her doesnt give you the right to talk about her in that manner because remmember she is not here to defend her self i wish you would call her vulgar to see what she would do to you

We cannot judge!!! And we should have more respect for her that is not here anymore and for her family no matter what she did one think i do know is that. She did suffer alot and was a hard working person that put always her family first
yes after all he was someone that at one point was part of her life.
What ever the case may be, he was her husband and they built memories. Let God be the judge and if he wants to attend then, let it be.

Out of RESPECT for Jenni, her family and fans, he should NOT attend. Only he knows what "terms" he and Jenni were in...and if they were in non-speaking terms: he should respect her wishes and NOT go. If he cheated on her with her own daughter--he should not go. PERIOD. He could have loved her and showed her respect while she was ALIVE! A little late now, buddy!

HE SHOULD ATTEND AND I WOULD BE VERY DISAPOINTED IF HE DIDNT.. HE WAS THE LOVE OF HER LIFE AS SHE SAID,AND SHE WAS IN HIS!!! RUMORS ALWAYS GO AROUND, ESPECIALLY WITH HAPPY COUPLES LIKE THEY WERE!!! PEOPLE HATE TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY, SHE LOVED HIM AND HE LOVED HER. HOPEFULLY ENOUGH TO ATTEND THIS VERY IMPORTANT DAY I UNDERSTAND IT MUST BE HARD BUT I BELIEVE HER FAMILY NEEDS HIM AT THIS TIME, AND AINT NO BODY GOING TO FEEL RELIEF UNTIL EVERYTHING IS SETTLED BETWEEN HIM AND HER FAMILY!!! HE IS AFTER ALL HER HUSBAND!!!! TIME TO ACT LIKE IT AND STEP UP TO THE PLATE ESTEBAN!!!!!!!!!!!
