Jenni’s Alleged Ties To The Drug Cartel

The Mexican-American singer reportedly worked alongside Edgar Valdez Villarreal, also known as “El Barbie.” Jenni was also reportedly detained at the Mexico City Airport in 2009 for carrying more than $50K in cash.

Jenni never admitted to these claims but she has said: “Yes, it is true that at times you are not aware of who contracts you [for a show],” she told ¡Hola! Magazine. “They tell you that you will sing at a certain place and that they will pay you a certain amount of money.”

Jenni’s Tragic Death

Jenni and five others were killed in the plan that “nose-dived” on Dec. 9. The owner of the plane is now being investigated for possible drug trafficking.

“The plane practically nosedived,” Mexican transportation official Gerardo Ruiz Esparaza said. “The impact must have been terrible.”

The plane reportedly fell at a 45-degree angle and landed 1.2 miles from where it began going down.

Do you think that it’s possible that Jenni was involved with a drug cartel in the months leading up to her death?
