Rivera Arrested Over Cash Claims

Singer JENNI RIVERA was arrested at a Mexico airport on Monday (18May09) after allegedly attempting to carry $50,000 (£33,000) in cash on a flight to the U.S.
The star was detained at Mexico City's international airport as she waited to board a plane to Los Angeles after officials discovered $52,167 (£34,778) in her carry-on luggage during a random search.
Mexican authorities claim Rivera, who lives in California, only admitted to carrying $20,000 (£13,000).
Officials insist anyone carrying more than $10,000 (£6,667) in cash has to declare it - and a passenger found taking large amounts of money between countries could face felony charges.
As WENN went to press it was not known whether Rivera will face charges in relation to the incident.
