Mexican newspaper Milenio recently published several purported text message exchanges between drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and actor Kate del Castillo. Although it becomes clear that El Chapo was smitten with del Castillo, there are several interesting moments in their conversations. Here’s what stands out:

Kate del Castillo’s first communication with El Chapo is via El Chapo’s attorney.

It appears El Chapo’s attorney met with Kate del Castillo in person and handed over his cell phone to del Castillo so she could communicate with El Chapo.

El Chapo tells del Castillo he’s not much of a drinker, but he will drink tequila and Buchanan’s scotch whiskey to celebrate when they meet.

What does El Chapo mean by “tomaré también del tuyo”? He’s likely referring to Tequila Honor, the tequila brand del Castillo just launched.

Then El Chapo goes into total flirt mode:

“Seremos muy buenos amigos.”

Kate replies that no one has ever protected her before.

When El Chapo’s attorney mentions that del Castillo wants to bring Sean Penn along, he tells El Chapo that Penn is the most recognized actor from the United States.

El Chapo wants to buy Kate del Castillo a pink BlackBerry so they can communicate. He settles on a grey one.

After El Chapo’s attorney informs him the BlackBerry is only available in black or grey, he chooses grey.

El Chapo tells his attorney to remind del Castillo that he wants to drink and dance with her.

According to El Chapo’s attorney, del Castillo thinks Sean Penn is a bigger badass than Marlon Brando.

“Dice la dama que es más chingón que el que hizo la de El Padrino (The lady says he’s a bigger badass than the guy who did The Godfather).”

Once Kate del Castillo has the cell phone El Chapo purchased for her, El Chapo tells her she’ll be safe with him.

Once again, she replies that she feels protected for the very first time.

After their meeting, del Castillo tells El Chapo she can’t sleep because she’s excited about working on his movie. El Chapo’s reply? He cares more about del Castillo than the movie.

El Chapo = ???

Later that month, El Chapo tells del Castillo he wants her to meet his mother.

As Mexican law enforcement officials already know, El Chapo moves fast.

In November, del Castillo informs El Chapo that they need his approval before Sean Penn’s article is published.

Unfortunately for us, Milenio did not publish any text messages that lets us know if Kate del Castillo replied to El Chapo’s “my mom wants to meet you” text. But you can read the whole exchange here.

Update: Kate del Castillo claims the text exchanges are made up.

No doubt, the best part — after finishing the actual fruit — is drinking the lime juice.
