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.

My family is so sad and shocked by the news. She was an inspiration to Latinas and many more. My community is mourning, her brother is the pastor at the church on my street. I just can't believe it. And it's a shame that she ever reconciled with her daughter. People should forgive...you never know what will happen. RIP Jenni.

Nothing against Ms Rivera and may she rest in peace, but is it such a slow news day that this needed to be repeated from the story 8 hours ago that said she was on the plane and there were no survivors??

I'm so sad. Reminds me of how Selena passed away at a young age and on the brink of having tons of more success. Prayers and thoughts are with the families and friends of all the deceased on that plane on a cold December night.
