Age, Early Life, and Education Background

Jenicka Priscilla Lopez was born under the Libra zodiac sign on 3 October 1997, in Compton, California, and is 25 years old as of 2022. She was born to Dolores ‘Jenni’ Rivera, who was a TV producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist, and the Mexican entrepreneur Juan ‘El Cinco’ Manuel Lopez, and has a brother, the singer and actor, Johnny Lopez, and three half-siblings, Chiquis Rivera, Michael Marin, and Jacquie Campos. Sadly, both of her parents are no more; her mother was involved in a fatal ‘plane crash on 9 December 2012, aged 43, and she was laid to rest in All Souls Cemetery in Long Beach, California. Her father succumbed to pneumonia at the age of 37, while he was in prison.

Jenni’s daughter attended Fusion Academy, which is situated in Los Angeles, California. She matriculated to Baruch College, Manhattan, New York City.



Jenicka has been described as a generous and good-hearted woman; she believes in giving and previously quoted Jennifer Lopez during an interview: ‘you get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them.’

In 2014, her mom’s former manager, Laura Lucio, sued her family for publishing the autobiography, “My Vida Loca” without her consent – she claimed ownership of the late singer’s interviews and writings claiming that she wrote 95% of the book and that 40% of the profits belonged to her.


Jenicka had a very supportive mom, who encouraged her to start acting at a young age. She made her TV debut in 2011 in the reality show “I Love Jenni,” which aired on the Universo channel for three seasons, appearing alongside her mother and siblings. In the year that followed, Jenicka was seen in the TV series “Chiquis ‘n Control”, and was later cast in the show’s spin-off, “The Riveras,” which aired for four seasons from 16 October 2016 to 17 November 2019.

Lopez became famous through her appearances, which drove her to begin a career as a social media sensation. She launched a self-titled YouTube channel in April 2013. She has posted a wide array of videos about daily lifestyle, make-up tutorials and vlogs. Some of her most viewed videos are “I GOT A HOUSE!! I JENICKA LOPEZ,” which was posted on 4 December 2019 and has over 470,000 views, ‘10 Minute Makeup NO Mirror Challenge w/ my sister!!

The plus-size model has also posed for several brands such as Fashion Nova.

Jenicka is active on several social media platforms. She has around 1.2 million followers on her verified Instagram account, and uses it to market her clothing line. Her Twitter, Facebook and TikTok accounts have around 35,000, 350,000, and 950,000 followers respectively. Moreover, she has around 165,000 fans on YouTube.

Lopez confirmed through her YouTube channel that she went for weight loss surgery in Arizona on the platform, and documented the entire procedure, which involved liposuction and tummy tuck as well as the transfer of fat to her butt to lift them; she also shared her before and after photos on Instagram, flaunting the radical change.

Who Was Jenicka Lopez’s Mother, Jenni Rivera

Jenni Rivera was born in Los Angeles, California, on 2 July 1969, to Mexican immigrants Pedro Rivera and Rosa Saavedra. She was brought up alongside her four brothers – one of whom Lupillo, is a regional Mexican singer – and sister, in a musical household. She was a bright student, and it’s reported that she scored straight A’s.


Jenicka became pregnant by Trino Marin just as she turned 15, which made her parents kick her out of their house. She married Marin in 1984, but their union was marked with mental and physical abuse. She described their eight years of togetherness as sorrowful, and she even attempted to commit suicide twice. As a result, her parents took her back in, and she shortly afterward began her musical career when she joined the record label called Cintas Acuario.

Rivera performed in bars and this is where she met her second husband, Juan Lopez. They thereafter fell in love, tied the knot in 1997, and later welcomed two children. Sadly, they parted ways in 2003 due to her husband’s unfaithfulness.

Her career soared when she joined the label Fonovisa, and she subsequently received several Billboard nominations, and was awarded a Latin Grammy. She had released over 12 major-label albums and had sold over 15 million copies..

She served as the spokesperson of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence in 2010, and later founded several other organisations to help children with cancer, women who were victims of violence, and immigrants.

She later married Esteban Loaiza, an actor and former baseball player.


Jenni was also credited with her appearances in the reality shows “I Love Jenni” and “Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis & Raq-C.”

Jenni later became an accomplished business mogul, and launched Divine Music, Jenni Jeans, Divina Cosmetics, and several other brands, but she divorced her husband amidst her professional successes.

When she died in 2012, she was worth approximately $25 million.
