CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) – The father of slain Tejano star Selena has filed a lawsuit to stop production of a television series based on what he calls an unauthorized book by the singer’s widower, Chris Perez.

Abraham Quintanilla filed the lawsuit Friday in Nueces County District Court against Perez, Blue Mariachi Productions, LLC, and the production company Endemol Shine North America. Endemol announced last month that it planned to adapt Perez’s 2012 memoir, “To Selena with Love,” into a television series.

The lawsuit, posted on the Corpus Christi Caller-Times website (http://bit.ly/2h2cCF1 ), seeks to stop the production, alleging Perez signed a contract giving all rights to exploit the singer’s likeness and name to her estate in exchange for 25 percent of the profits.

Selena Quintanilla-Perez was fatally shot by her fan club’s president in 1995.
