Michaels released a statement paying tribute to and mourning the loss of his friend, which read as follows:

“I am deeply saddened hearing the news of the crash of Jenni Rivera’s plane. Not only did the crash claim the life of Ms. Rivera but that of 4 [sic] other people including, Jacob Yebale, who was a great friend to all of us at Michaels Entertainment having worked with me, VH1 and 51 Minds on numerous shoots. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family as well as Ms. Rivera’s and the other families who lost loved ones in this awful and sudden tragedy.”
