Selena's father is not happy about a television project about his famous daughter's life.

The father of the deceased singer, Abraham Quintanilla, claims in a new lawsuit obtained by The Wrap that Selena's husband Christopher Perez violated an estate agreement when he wrote "To Selena With Love" in 2012. The book is now being adapted into a TV series by Endemol Shine Latino.

Quintanilla says in his suit that Perez "expressly confirmed" that he had all of the rights to the entertainment properties in regards to his daughter's estate. He said his son-in-law is violating their agreement through his 2012 book and the upcoming TV series.

Quintanilla is seeking "monetary relief over $1 million."
