The lawsuit also names production company Endemol Shine Latino.
Selena's father, Abraham Quintanilla Jr., is taking the late singer's widower Chris Perez and production company Endemol Shine Latino to court over the development of a television series based on Perez's "unauthorized" memoir To Selena With Love.
Quintanilla presented a lawsuit against Perez and Endemol on Friday in a Texas court to halt the production of the forthcoming series. According to court documents, "Defendant Perez expressly agreed that he would not exploit any of the Entertainment Properties in any manner or medium, including, without limitation, by way of a book, television series, movie, or any other motion picture medium."
Furthermore, with the production of the series, Perez is in violation of the Estate Properties Agreement contract he signed after Selena's death back in 1995, which states that Selena's father "owns all proprietary rights in the name, voice, signature, photograph, and likeness of Selena."
