Read the Most Intriguing Texts between Kate del Castillo and El Chapo

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.

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.

El Chapo’s 91-Year-Old Mom Is Coming To The US To Visit Him In Prison And Is Bringing His Favorite Mexican Dish

El Chapo’s 91-Year-Old Mom Is Coming To The US To Visit Him In Prison And Is Bringing His Favorite Mexican Dish

Earlier this year, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera was found guilty on all ten criminal counts in Brooklyn, New York. Since then, life hasn’t been all that bad for the former Mexican drug lord. His wife is launching a clothing line, and even though El Chapo’s team has complained about the unfair treatment at his prison and lack of outdoor time, it’s been manageable. He still faces sentencing later this month, which means El Chapo has yet to face the worse of it. So, it makes sense that he’s getting some sort of encouraging visits.

El Chapo’s mom, 91-year-old Consuelo Loera, got her visa approved to visit her son in prison.


The Independent is reporting that Loera got her visa approved to enter the United States after requesting it from the Mexican Embassy. They also say that Mexico’s president Andrés Manuel López Obrador fought to have her visit her son because he had “an empathy toward the elderly woman.”

El Chapo’s next court date is scheduled for June 25, where he faces sentencing. If he thinks his mom’s presence might persuade the judge to be lenient on his jail time, he should think again.

“It is a sentence from which there is no escape and no return,” U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said earlier this year in Brooklyn.

According to her attorney, Jose Luis González, Consuelo Loera proved to the government that she has the means to travel to the U.S. She also proved her reason to leave and travel back to Mexico.

Consuelo Loera told reporters she plans to bring El Chapo his favorite dish, enchiladas.

We had no idea, El Chapo was such a traditionalist when it came to Mexican food. We thought he might have requested a burrito or carne asada tacos.

Now, if the 91-year-old woman shows up in New York City, where is she going to cook up some enchiladas? She’s probably going to have to order take out. If that’s the case, do you have any recommendations on the best enchiladas in New York? Let us know!

On Feb. 12, a Brooklyn jury found Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán guilty on ten federal criminal counts and now faces life behind bars. The most infamous drug cartel leader of all-time made billions through his illegal operations. According to CNN when they read the verdict, El Chapo looked over to his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, smiled at her and “she smiled back and touched her hand to her heart.”

Outside the courthouse, reporters asked how her thoughts regarding the verdict, and she reportedly said: “Good, thank you.” She doesn’t seem too fazed that her husband will be locked up for good, and now we know why.

El Chapo’s wife is starting her own fashion line.


The 29-year-old has launched her LLC under her name, which means it’s completely separate from her husband’s illegal and financial issues. He will still be involved in some respects.

“I am very happy to be able to create something like this. I hope it’ll be something everyone likes,” she told the New York Daily News. “I will give it my best effort to make it good for everyone and within everyone’s reach,” she said. “I want to start with a line of caps, then I’ll begin to produce clothes, jackets.”

The 29-year-old said that the logo will include El Chapo’s name and some of his fashion sense


“During the process, as it evolves, I’ll see where my ideas take me,” she told the publication. “A little bit of my style and his style — it will be like a mixture of the two so that it really is our essence.”

We have no idea what the mother of twins means by that considering the public has only seen El Chapo wearing three things: a prison suit, a Member’s Only jacket, and that flashy blue shirt.

Well, we are indeed very interested to see what her fashion collection will look like, mainly since she was always stylish during his court appearances


“This project is an idea Joaquin, and I have had for a long time. Before he was in the USA we talked a lot about this topic,” she said. “Really, it’s both of our ideas.”

We’re anticipating this big time.
