Blind Item #3

In return for cash a long long time ago, this husband of a deceased icon gave up the right to associate his last name with the icon. He thought the family was going to relent on a very special event. Nope. They would actually like to pretend he doesn't exist.

+1 for Chris Pérez, Selena's husband. Her married name was Selena Quintanilla-Pérez but the star she just got on the Walk of Fame only has her birth name, Selena Quintanilla. Selena's dad Abraham has always disliked Chris, which is why they had to elope.

Jennifer Lopez only wishes she had a fraction of the talent of this Selena.

Polikarpa, any idea why they didn’t like him? He seemed to truly love his wife!! Did he ever get re-married? Such a senseless tragedy. :-(

Pink_Palace, I think the main issue was that Abraham was (and still is, even after her death) very, very controlling of Selena and her career. The party line is that he thought Chris would ruin her image - he was too much of a rocker - but in my opinion he just didn't want anyone else to have any influence over his daughter. (The second issue was probably Chris' use of alcohol - Abraham fired him from the band after he and two guys from the road crew got drunk and trashed a hotel room.)

Chris Pérez did get remarried and had two children but is now divorced. He wrote a book about his life with Selena and was trying to make it into a TV show recently but Abraham sued him to stop it. It's very sad. I think Chris has every right to tell his wife's story without her father getting in the way but Abraham will never let anyone do anything involving Selena without having a finger in the pie. It's hard to tell if he's greedy or just never stopped being the authoritarian.

Thanks polikarpa! I hadn’t heard anything about her in years — til this year and her name keeps on popping up. Kim K and Demi even dressed up as Selena this year...
