Jenni Rivera’s husband Esteban Loaiza is suing the owners of the plane that crashed in northern Mexico in December 2012, killing the singer and six others.
According to City News Service, the former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher filed the wrongful death case Friday in Los Angeles.
Among other things, the lawsuit claims that the pilots weren’t licensed to fly paying passengers.
Jenni Rivera, who died at the age of 43, filed for divorce from Esteban Loaiza two months before the crash, but the lawsuit says he continued to receive financial benefits from her.
Jenni Rivera sold more than 15 million records.
