In other Jenni Rivera-related news, the Latin songstress’s California mansion is going up for sale, despite her wishes. Fox Latino reports that Rivera wished her parents and children to take over the property in the event of her death, but it will go to the market under a listing of $3.3 million, the same price Rivera paid for it four years ago.
Rivera’s sister Rosie was left in charge of the estate, but she thinks it’s too expensive to maintain.
Rivera’s California mansion is 9,527-square-feet, has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. It sits on four acres in Encino, and includes a pool, entertainment patio, spa and waterfall.
