Originally posted 07/03/2013 07:45PM
Jenni Rivera's life seemed to consist of a series of struggles that led up to the fatal plane crash that killed the Mexican-American superstar in December 2012.
Rape, a suicide attempt at 19, domestic abuse by her first husband and her mother's miscarriage all contributed to what is shared in her memoir, Unbreakable, which was released by Simon & Schuster's Atria Books imprint on Tuesday, which would have been Rivera's 44th birthday.
