1209-jenni-rivera-gettyJenni Rivera died early this morning in Mexico after the plane she was flying on crashed shortly after takeoff, leaving no survivors. She was 43.

Rivera's father and brother confirmed her death on Telemundo.

Four other passengers and two pilots were also aboard the plane. It was headed from Monterrey to Toluca, after Rivera performed in Monterrey on Saturday night.

Mexico's transportation ministry says the plane lost contact with radar at 3:15 AM, approximately 61 miles from Monterrey.

Rivera was named one of the 25 most powerful women by People en Español and reportedly signed on recently to do a comedy pilot for ABC. She has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

OH, c'mon, TMZ. Have you EVER had an item on this woman, who I've never heard of (just like I hadn't heard of Selena until she died). Okay, great, she was big in Mexico - huge, even - but like so many of your articles lately, they are people at least 50% of your audience has never heard of.

All i got to say is that I never really followed her music...but even though I am not a fan, I think it is way wrong and disgusting how people can be so disrespectful to someone who passed away, or to say they even wished it was Kim. If you dont like them, then good, but dont write hateful things
