Jenicka Lopez is a reality TV star who became super famous after she made her appearance in a hit reality TV show ‘I Love Jenni’ that highlighted the personal as well as professional life of Jenicka’s mother Jenni Rivera. Rivera was a really great singer as well as a songwriter. Jenicka has had two family tragedies and it’s very much bad. Today, we are going to be looking at these tragedies and we will also take a brief look at some facts about her life. So, let us get started!
Born and Raised in America
Jenicka is a born American. Her father is of Mexican descent but she is a complete American. She grew up along with her mother’s fame as a singer so, she had a really privileged life overall. She got many chances in her life to do better and she also belongs to the Caucasian ethnicity so, there’s added privilege there.
Lopez has a total of three half-siblings. She has two sisters Chiquis and Jacqueline as well as a brother named Michael who was born in the year 1991. He is actually her half brother born from her mother’s previous marriage to Jose Trinidad Marin. Johnny Lopez, on the other hand, is her biological brother and he was born in 2001. He is an actor right now and you can see him on different shows like The Riveras and Crooked Stilo.
Unfortunately for Jenicka, both her parents have already passed away. Her father was Juan Lopez who was Mexican native. He met her mother Jenni in the year 1995 and the two started dating soon. They had a small wedding ceremony but they had to separate in 2003. Four years after that, Juan was arrested because he was trafficking drugs and then sentenced to a 10 year jail time. During this period, he passed away. The reasons were later revealed and he died because of Pneumonia. His death date was14th july 2009.
On the other hand, Jenicka’s mother Jenni was raised in California and she was a big name in the Music Industry. She unfortunately died in a plane crash. In the December of 2012, a plane crash happened in Monterrey, Mexico and this was the disaster where her mom was present in. She couldn’t be saved.
Lopez is very secretive when it comes to her relationships. The Social Media influencer has not really revealed anything about her dating life. She has the tendency to keep things private so, it is hard to find out if Jenicka is in a relationship or not. We guess not. Because we haven’t seen anything suspicious on her Social Media handles.
Jenicka has weight problems. She was a chubby child and has been gaining weight ever since. Lopez is a health advocate though and she preaches about a healthy lifestyle a balanced diet but she is opposed to doing extreme dieting and exercises that don’t really help.
Her half-sister Jacqie Rivera also struggled due to her heavy extra weight. But her half sister who is also a TV personality has lost about 70 pounds.
And you can also watch her journey to lose weight in the new season The Riveras in 2018.

Nowadays, everyone is a social media influencer so, Jenicka is one too! Jokes aside, she actually has a good number of followers on her Instagram. She just passed 1 Million followers on the platform as of 2021. Her frequent posts are of photos relating to her life and they are normally well thought out.
In addition to Instagram, she also has a YouTube channel with more than 152K subscribers. So, she is actually very successful on Social media and she uses this fame to plug products and make money off it too.
Lopez is a successful TV star and she has a good social media presence. Having a good following on Social Media can translate to monetary gain quite quickly and same has happened with Lopez. As of the year 2021, she has had a massive surge of income and she has around $500,000 in the bank. She has also racked a good amount of fortune from her TV appearances and her social media career. Her total net worth exceeds around a million dollars or so. But this is still nothing compared to her mother’s worth. Jenni Rivera was worth $25 million dollars. The fortune was split between her children but we don’t know who got what amount of that massive fortune.
