What Happened to Selena's Husband?

November 10, 2023

In the years since Selena Quintanilla Perez's death in 1995, her family has been in charge of her image and likeness. They've given the OK to several productions, including a J. Lo biopic, and have also given their blessing to several products, including a collection with MAC Cosmetics and a Madame Tussaud's wax figure. However, despite the family's approval of these ventures, there's been one area where they've remained firm: They have kept Chris Perez away from all things related to their late daughter.

Chris and Selena first met when he was hired to play guitar for the Tejano band she fronted, Selena y los Dinos. The pair began dating in secret and eventually eloped. They were married for just three years before Selena was shot and killed by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar.

During the months leading up to her untimely death, Selena reached stardom across America and beyond. Her album Entre a Mi Mundo became the best-selling Tejano record of all time, and her concerts were legendary. Selena was just 23 when she died.

Two decades after her death, Selena's music and legacy continue to inspire fans both old and new. Her story is even being brought to the small screen with the debut of Netflix's Selena: The Series. But where is Selena's husband, and what does he think of the show?
