Selena’s loss of life 25 years in the past

Gone far too quickly, the “Dreaming of You” pop star was shot by Yolanda Saldívar, the president of the singer’s fan membership. Selena was solely 23.

On the morning of March 31, 1995, Saldívar was capable of persuade Selena to come back to her motel room, saying she had business papers for her.

At the room, the “Dreaming of You” star and Saldívar argued loudly, in line with motel visitors. They mentioned they heard two ladies arguing about business issues.

Selena was ready to fireside Saldívar and dumped a bag containing financial institution statements onto the mattress and noticed Saldívar’s gun, which the older girl grabbed and pointed on the singer.

As Selena tried to run, her fan membership president and boutique assistant shot her, hitting an artery. By the time paramedics arrived, she had bled profusely and died on the hospital.

Abraham’s former son-in-law wrote a guide about Selena as effectively

Selena’s husband, Chris Perez, wrote a guide about her in 2012. While the property settlement that Perez signed with the Quintanilla household shortly after her loss of life prohibited him from producing books, tv, or film offers about Selena, Abraham gave Perez his blessing on the guide.

That similar settlement gave the late singer’s father full management over all “Entertainment Properties,” together with contract, trademark and copyright rights, rights to revenue, rights of publicity, rights to call, voice, signature, and images, amongst different rights, “throughout the world in perpetuity without restriction.”

“I didn’t say something to anybody whereas writing it. It wasn’t as a result of I used to be afraid of the response, however I simply wished to be at peace after I was writing it. When I used to be completed and talked to Abraham about it, he mentioned, ‘Son, if it’s one thing you’re feeling you’ll want to do, you may have each proper to do it.’ “

“It was something that I had to do in order to move forward. I was dealing with boxes and boxes of baggage that I had suppressed. So I went through, dusted them off, and then wrote the book.”

Abraham’s upcoming guide about Selena

The now-81-year-old father of the “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” singer posted on Facebook in Feb. 2020 about his coming memoir and the way it will differ from different books which were written about his daughter.

“Today I finally finished the last chapter of my book that I have been writing for the last few months. . . Since my daughter Selena died I was wanting to write a book.”

In his assertion, he alluded to María Celeste Arrarás, a journalist for Latin community, Telemundo, who wrote a guide and hosted a tv collection based mostly on this guide, known as Selena’s Secret, which hinted at the potential for Selena having had an affair with a physician in Mexico.

“The public might not be aware that there are about 21 unauthorized books written about Selena and none of the writers ever interviewed Selena. And I feel that the most ugly book was written by Telemundo’s Maria Celeste Ararras [sic], the woman for reasons which I can’t understand took sides with the woman who killed Selena.”

“My family and I and Chris Perez know exactly what happened, as l mentioned non of the writers or even Maria Celeste ever interviewed Selena. I will release the book later this year.”
