Selena Quintanilla's Family Members Killed By Hurricane Harvey

The deceased are distant relatives of the late singer.

Abraham Quintanilla, the father of the late-Tejano singer Selena, wrote on Facebook to disclose that six members of their family were killed by Hurricane Harvey. According to reports, at least 60 people were killed after the disaster struck Texas.

Mr. Quintanilla wrote on Facebook on Aug. 28 that Manuel Saldivar, 84, his wife Belia, 81, and their four great-grandchildren Daisy, 6, Xavier, 8, Dominique, 14, and Devy Saldivar, 16, drowned in the car trying to stay safe.

"When they cross a bridge a wave of water swept the van and push them in to the bayou the driver was saved but manuel and his wife and 4 grandkids drowned," he detailed in a Facebook post. "Manuels mother Carolina Was my father's 1st cousin. My condolences to their family..."

Manuel and Belia both suffered from Alzheimer's disease, according to their son. They would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in October.

An official report has been taken, however, the vehicle and bodies have reportedly not been recovered from the scene yet. A GoFundMe page has been started in order to raise money for the family. The goal was $20,000, and it has been surpassed.

Drake Takes ‘Architectural Digest’ On Tour Of His Toronto Manor

In his hometown of Toronto, Canada, Drake is living life like a king within his expansive and glitzy manor. The 50,000 square-foot home, or “The Embassy,” is a source of infinite “high luxury” from his 3,200-square-foot master bedroom to a basketball court on par with the NBA’s hardwood.

“Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years,” Drake said in a profile by Architectural Digest  for its May issue. “I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel. It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong.”

Part of the design was spearheaded by interior designer Ferris Rafauli. Describing the final product of the entire mansion as “modern Art Deco,” Rafauli was able to install eye-catching marble to customizing a grand piano through the artistry of Bösendorfer and artist Takashi Murakami.

“In form, materials, and execution, the structure is a proper 19th-century limestone mansion. But the exterior profiles are more minimal and the lines are a bit cleaner,” Rafauli said. “This isn’t stucco, paint, and fake gold. That’s not what Drake wanted, and that’s not what I do.”

Near the beginning of April, Drake released the visuals for his new dance song “Toosie Slide.” It was shot inside his home as the world is under social distancing orders, serving as a walk-through of where he lays his head equipped with a fireworks show in his backyard, if you can even refer to that amount of land as such.

The first Bad Boys film was a box office hit raking in more than $140 million. The 2003 sequel nearly doubled the numbers of its predecessor.

Lawrence and Smith reprised their roles as detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Barnett in Bad Boys for Life, which grossed $425 million worldwide.

Speaking to VIBE during the film’s premier in January, the duo revealed the secret to maintaining a flow on screen after all these years. “A great deal of respect and love for each other,” said Lawrence.

Smith noted that their friendship contributes to why they work so well together. “You can’t really love somebody you don’t understand. If you don’t known what makes them laugh, what makes them cry, if you don’t understand what somebody needs, you can’t really love them and that’s what I was noticing about the two of us, we just understand each other.”
