Jenni Rivera fans know that there is only one “Diva de la Banda.” But in the eyes of Korina Lopez, there’s room enough for two. The Mexican songstress has declared herself “La Dama de la Banda” and that’s not sitting well with Jenni devotees.
According to Korina, fans have begun sending her death threats because they believe she’s disrespecting Rivera’s legacy. They also believe that she’s attempting to cash in on Jenni’s posthumous success.
Lopez, not surprisingly, has stood her ground and told the press that she has no plans to change her nickname.
“I respect my fans and they have asked me not to change it,” she told People en Español. “I personally do not think it’s an insult to anyone.”
Korina went on to say that she’s been using the “Banda” moniker for over two years and had even been friendly with Rivera. So for now it seems, “La Dama” lives on.
