El Chapo's Wife Sets Up 'Official' Instagram Account For Her Husband
So luckily for infamous gang leader,Joaquain 'El Chapo' Guzmán, his wife is on the case and has created an Instagram account under his name, sharing photographs to thousands of followers.
The former beauty queen Emma Coronel set up the page this summer and has been posting old snaps of her 61-year-old husband.
Aww, isn't that cute?
Her first post was a black and white photograph of the infamous trafficker, with caption - originally written in Spanish - 'always humble in life is the only thing you need'.
Since then the account, run by the mum-of-two, has amassed a huge following, with more than 23,000 people viewing Coronel's posts.
Las week she shared a photograph of El Chapo - 'The Shorty' - posing with loved ones above the caption: 'Life is just a while and you have to live it as best you can. #elchapo'.
The 29-year-old's most recent photograph of her lover shows him wearing a black suit and pretty sharp pink shirt, while holding a candle and looking fairly threatening into the distance. Maybe someone made a comment about his tash?
The caption reads: 'It is not the height, nor the weight, nor the muscles, nor the beauty that make you a great person. It is the heart and the humility. #elchapo'.
Coronel is no stranger to the spotlight however, and despite her husband being in a fairly precarious position right now - sat in a jail cell awaiting trial for money laundering and drug trafficking - she has been prolific online, sharing photographs of her living the high life.
Last month she made headlines after she posted a photo from an elaborate Barbie-themed party.
One post was of the 29-year-old with her two children in Brooklyn - where her hubby's trial is set to take place next month - and the caption reads. 'everything's going to be fine, maybe not today, but eventually.'
And she has a really cheeky sense of humour as well - a post from September 11 shows Coronel at the firing range shooting a large rifle. And get this, the caption says, 'practising'. Hilarious and definitely not terrifying at all.
But not everyone is as impressed with her online antics.
A retired Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent told the New York Post: "The whole story with her is so surreal. She goes around and flaunts her wealth and lifestyle in front of everyone's face."
El Chapo is accused of leading the dangerous Sinaloa drug cartel, killing thousands of people, and raking in billions of dollars from the export of cocaine, heroin and other drugs.
The last time the cartel boss was behind bars he didn't last too long, when he built a mile-long tunnel out of Mexico's top security prison after serving just 16 months inside.
His life has even become the subject of a Netflix series, called El Chapo, which now in its third season is proving to be a massive hit.
