Mexican Superstar

My Son the Bandito!

10/8/2012 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1005-jenni-rivera-tmz Mexican superstar Jenni Rivera -- who has sold 20 million albums -- made a frantic call to cops that went something like this: "Hola, Que tal? My son may be robbing me blind."

Kidding.  It actually went down like this.  Rivera woke up out of a dead sleep at 2 AM Wednesday, after hearing rustling in the bushes that made her more suspicious than a scorned lover in a telenovela. 

Panicked ... Rivera ran to the monitor attached to her security camera, and saw a suspicious hombre lurking outside.  Rivera then called 911 and reported what she thought was an attempted burglary.

Cops responded in rapido facion, only to discover the suspect was actually one of Rivera's sons, who apparently stayed out a little too late and was trying to make his way inside.

All was well, so cops said hasta la vista, baby. 

We apologize in advance. Don't bother writing.

Please don't give any more publicity to this mediocre, lower-than-D-list excuse of a "singer". She pulls publicity stunts all the time like this to stay in the news to make up for her lackluster "talent".

Oh wow... I usually come to this site for the amount of humor mixed with the gossip. This could've been funny, but it was over done so it comes across as ignorant... Specially the last line at the bottom... i thought my comments kept this site up.. Hmm? Total fail for TMZ!

Clarification; This happened LAST WEEK wednesday and was TOLD way differently from Rivera herself on her popular radio show, Contacto Directo. Jenni had recently changes the codes to her alarms and heard something, and in a panic immediately thought someone was trying to break into her Encino Hills home, and called police. Her eldest son (Mikey) comes to her room, Which Jenni then tells him whats going on... The person Jenni "thought' to be breaking in was her son returning from Jack and the box, Lol. Jenni Rivera is a HUGE Mexican Regional Artist, First to sell perform, and sell out the Kodak, Nokia, and Staples center. Is also a multiple GRAMMY nominated Singer, how has countless awards from billboard, premio lo nuestro and others MANY others. Her Cd's have also went gold, Platinum. Jenni ALSO the NUMBER ONE reality tv show on Mun 2, And Is Currently on "The Voice" in Mexico " La Voz Mexico 2". So for you that say shes "Not" a superstar need to know what you're talking about because she has made HISTORY in the music business.
