Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s wife – yes, he’s married – FINALLY broke her silence in an interview with Telemundo. Emma Coronel Aispuro spoke with reporter Anabel Hernández about an El Chapo that only the 26-year-old former beauty queen could know: a father and husband.
Emma Coronel Aispuro, El Chapo’s wife, says she fears for El Chapo’s life because of how he is being treated.
Pobrecito. Coronel Aispuro is no longer allowed to visit El Chapo at the Altiplano prison. According to La Jornada, Mexican authorities say El Chapo married another woman, Alejandrina María Salazar Hernández, and never divorced her. After El Chapo was recaptured, Mexican authorities refused to recognize El Chapo’s marriage to Coronel Aispuro.
According to her, the Mexican government is behind his terrifying reputation.
Coronel Aispuro maintains that El Chapo is not as powerful as the Mexican government would have people believe.
Coronel Aispuro is afraid of how El Chapo’s reputation will impact their daughters’ lives.
Think of the children.
She believes El Chapo is being treated poorly in prison for as revenge for highly-publicized escape in 2015.
Coronel Aispuro insists El Chapo is a very well-behaved and genuinely nice guy.
This was a total surprise.
And he is also the life of the party, capable of making anyone feel right at home.
How sweet? Talk about a romantic.
But most of all, she wants the world to know that she is completely devoted to her husband – despite the Kate del Castillo slip up.
