Inside the Lavish Life of El Chapo's Wife
Emma Coronel Aispuro, a former beauty queen, is more than 30 years his junior.
Why is this woman smiling?
Emma Coronel Aispuro, the former beauty queen wife of drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, looked unfazed as she left a Brooklyn federal court Tuesday after her husband was convicted on narcotics trafficking charges.
Federal prosecutors have said they are trying to seize an estimated $14 billion in assets controlled by the former head of the Sinaloa Cartel, one of the biggest, and most brutal, drug and crime syndicates in the world.
Aispuro lived in luxury while she attended her husband's New York trial, staying at the deluxe Tillary Hotel and flanked by round-the-clock security because her husband's lawyers said they feared for her safety.
She is also the daughter of a convicted Mexican drug lord, but was born in the United States.
She's 32 years younger than her 61-year-old husband, whom she married on her 18th birthday after being crowned queen of the Coffee and Guava Festival in the Mexican state of Durango.
Aispuro is something of a celebrity in Mexico, where she has given interviews after her husband was captured and extradited to the U.S. to stand trial.
During her husband's three-month trial, Aispuro has been seen out and about.
Her husband faces life in prison at his sentencing hearing June 25.
