Jenni Rivera's relatives are cashing in on their legal battle over an unauthorised biographical TV series by selling T-shirts expressing their opposition to the show.
The tragic star's former business manager, Pete Salgado, teamed up with Spanish-language network bosses at Univision to shoot the series Su verdadero nombre era Dolores (Her Real Name Was Dolores), based on his experiences working with Jenni.
The Rivera family, which is working on its own biographical show with Telemundo chiefs, sued Salgado over the project in September (16), claiming he violated a non-disclosure agreement by creating the series, but they failed to halt the series from being broadcast, and it premiered in January (17).
Earlier this week (begs06Feb17), Jenni's estate officials stepped up their fight with Salgado by accusing him of defaming the singer in the show, and demanded at least $10 million (£8 million) in damages.
They have since also started selling a line of merchandise taking direct aim at the series' title, with their new T-shirts bearing the phrase: "Su Nombre Es JENNI (Her Name is Jenni)".
The Mexican-American star, born Dolores Janney Rivera, was killed in a plane crash in 2012.
