But Selena's father, Abraham Quintanilla, was against their relationship and forced them to end. 

He felt that Chris's image might hamper Selena's career and even threatened to disband the group

But the love birds ignored it and continued their affair.

Chris was eventually fired from the band, and Selena's father also forbidden her to see him again. 

But the duo eloped, which lead her father to accept their relationship. 

Later Abraham started loving his son-in-law Chris.

They were married until Selena was shot dead by her friend and former manager of her Selena Etc. Boutiques, Yolanda Saldívar, on 31st March 1995

Yolanda was a trained nurse by profession. She was also the president of the Selena Fan Club.

In 1995, Yolanda was discovered embezzling money from both fan club and boutique by the Selena family, due to which she was fired on March the first week. 

On the morning of 31st March, to retrieve the financial records, Selena agreed to meet Yolanda at a Days Inn motel in Corpus Christi.

To delay the handover, Yolanda said that she was raped in Mexica to that Selena immediately drove her to a local hospital where no evidence of rape was found.

They drove back again to the motel, and Selena again asked for the record. Then Yolanda from her purse took out .38 caliber Taurus Model 85 revolver and pointed it towards Selena. 

Seeing that Selena tried to run but Yolanda shot her in the back, which severed the artery.

Selena ran for help towards the lobby, being critically wounded. Yolanda chased her, calling her a "b***h." 

But Selena collapsed as the clerk called 911. Selena died at 1:05 pm in the hospital due to blood loss.

Yolanda was charged with first-degree murder and is sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole in 30 years.

Selena's death left Chris heart-broken, which led him to abuse drugs and alcohol.

In one of his interviews, the host recalled his days having a fun interview with her, along with praising her performances, referring Selena to be a well-rounded artist.

Not only in her voice, but her body language spoke too, Chris added. Moreover, he shared how Selena would let the audience feel what she was singing, confronting it to be her art and beauty.

Cassie’s father in Controversies

Besides Chris’s love life and career, he has also been involved in controversies. Well, back in the year 1992, Chris was arrested by police for driving at speed. 

He was with his friends and cousins. It’s been stated that there was a verbal argument between his cousin and police where the artist came to his aid. 

Nevertheless, both he and his cousin were handcuffed. Later, the police set them free as there was no evidence of them being involved in a high-speed chase. 

After some months, the artist booked a hotel room with his two band members. It was referred that they became intoxicated and began wrestling in the room. 

Nevertheless, Chris came out of the room being in a disheveled state. Sadly, after that incident, all three of them were fired from the respective band Selena y Los Dinos
