The father of a popular singer who was killed by the president of her fan club filed a lawsuit Friday to stop a TV series that was announced just two weeks ago.
E! News reports that Abraham Quintanilla Jr. filed the suit in Texas to halt production of a series based on the relationship between his daughter, Selena Quintanilla, and her former husband, Chris Perez. The suit names Perez and Endemol, who recently announced plans for the show.
“The documents state that in 1995, after Selena’s death, Perez and others entered a legal agreement about the late singer’s estate,” E! News reports. “According to the documents, Quintanilla Jr. is the only person with ownership and all proprietary rights in the name, voice, signature, photograph, and likeness of Selena.”
Selena was 23 when she was killed in 1995.
