Janney Marín Rivera was born and raised in California. She is daughter of Regional Mexican star, Jenni Rivera and her first husband, José Trinidad Marín. She is the first child of both her parents, has one younger sister, Jacquelin, one brother, Mikey, and two half-siblings from her mother's second marriage. Rivera is Presbyterian and attends church regularly with her family.

On April 7, 2015, she released a memoir called Forgiveness, she revealed the reasons she and her mother, Jenni Rivera, stopped speaking in October 2012. She revealed that she was molested by a woman. She confirmed that the reason for her and her mother's separation stemmed from the rumor that she had an affair with Esteban Loaiza. She denied the rumor and attributes it to "toxic voices" that surrounded her mother at a time when she was deeply lonely and confused, leading her to doubt her then-husband's fidelity and her own daughter's loyalty. She stated, in an attempt to find evidence of incriminating behavior, that Rivera looked at video footage from her home's security system and found an instance in which Chiquis is seen leaving the master bedroom which Rivera shared with Loaiza while they were married. Chiquis said that Rivera became fixated with the video, and watched it so many times that she had made herself believe her daughter actually "came back to the house and snuck back into the bedroom" to have a sexual encounter with Loaiza. Beto Cuevas, who was friends with Jenni, has stated that he gave her advice on how to deal with the rift with Chiquis three days before Jenni's death.

In 1997, her aunt, Rosie Rivera came forward and confessed to Jenni Rivera, that José Trinidad Marín, used to sexually molest her, and was now doing the same to Chiquis. Physical examination showed he had done the same with her younger sister Jacqie Marín. The molestation case was opened in 1997 and Marín spent 9 years as a fugitive before he was apprehended in April 2006 and convicted of sexual assault and rape. In May 2007, José Trinidad Marín was found guilty of 7 out of 9 charges and sentenced to 30 years in prison without parole.
