In 2012, Selena Quintanilla's widower, Chris Perez released "To Selena, With Love," a memoir about his life with the Tejano singer. In the book he talked about longtime rumors that pissed him off, including that Selena was pregnant when she died.
In a rare video of Selena's killer filmed inside prison, Yolanda Saldivar discloses that Selena had told her she was pregnant before she shot her to death.
In previous interviews, Saldivar has made the claim that Selena was pregnant prior to her death.
In her new interview, which was posted to the Spanish website RTE on Thursday (September 22), Saldivar offered more details, claiming that she overheard Selena tell someone that she was pregnant. Saldivar then alleged that Selena confronted her about what she overheard, and Saldivar told her, "I would take this secret to the grave."
Despite theories that Perez and Selena had a shotgun wedding because she was pregnant, her family and Perez have since dispelled that rumor many times.
"I could fill a whole book just about that," Perez said in a 2012 interview. "There were some things that were just ridiculous."
"People that don't want to know the personal life of Selena, and only care about the celebrity aspect, are not doing her any justice," Saldivar says in the video, "because she suffered a lot."
"The public believes that Selena was always so happy and cheerful but she wasn't," Saldivar said. "I saw her cry."
Saldivar's lawyer was also interviewed, and he made the outrageous allegation that Selena's father, Abraham Quintanilla, was the one to blame for Selena's death. The lawyer said that it was Abraham that told Selena to stay away from Saldivar.
Saldivar also reveals about what her life is like in prison.
Saldivar says that she is locked up behind bars 23 hours of the day and is only given a one hour recreation break a day.
She said that once she is allowed to be outside, no other inmate is permitted to be outside with her at the same time. Saldivar also said that the inmates aren't allowed to go near her or speak to her. She's in full seclusion.
Saldivar says that the reason for her complete isolation is because some inmates wish to inflict pain on her.
