Kate Castillo speaks out with her version of the Meeting with El Chapo

Lucio R Borderland Beat written with  material from New Yorker Magazine


M
exican born actress Kate del Castillo is speaking out in interviews, giving her story of the infamous Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman meeting.

Diane Sawyer scored the first sit-down TV interview with Castillo airing on March 18, at 10:00 p.m. on ABC’s 20/20 program. The actress will discuss the events of the Chapo interview and what led to the capture of the drug lord.

Castillo has given an interview the New Yorker Magazine, which is scheduled to be released in print on March 21, but can already be accessed online.

The New Yorker article is titled “The Go Between”, and it is her version of events that led to her brokering a meeting between actor Sean Penn, two Argentine filmmakers that work with Oliver Stone, and the world’s most famous drug trafficker, El Chapo.

Yet another version of the meeting that was a pivotal moment in time for the main characters involved. 

Kate says that on January 9th, she had just returned home, to Los Angeles, after a family trip.  It was a trying time for the actress, her marriage to model Aaron Diaz had fizzled.  

She poured a glass of wine, sat down at her computer, and logged on to Twitter.


From New Yorker:
 
Using the Tweet longer app, during the next half hour, she proceeded to free-associate on love and politics: “I don’t believe in marriage, I believe in love . . . I don’t believe in either punishment or sin . . . I don’t believe in the Pope and the Vatican and all their wealth . . . I am alive and for that I thank God every day, for who I am, for good or bad.” 
Then she turned to Joaquín Guzmán Loera, known as El Chapo, or Shorty—the leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel. El Chapo had escaped from prison in 2001, and had been at large since then. He was widely understood to be the most powerful drug lord in Mexico, if not the world, and was considered responsible for the deaths of thousands of people. Yet many Mexicans saw him as a populist antihero rather than as a murderer, because of his humble origins, his defiance of a corrupt and ineffective federal government, and his reputation for benevolence to Sinaloa’s poor and downtrodden. Del Castillo wrote, “Today I believe more in El Chapo Guzmán than I do in the governments that hide truths from me, even if they are painful, who hide the cures for cancer, AIDS, etc., for their own benefit. MR. CHAPO, WOULDN’T IT BE COOL IF YOU STARTED TRAFFICKING WITH THE GOOD? . . . COME ON SEñOR, YOU WOULD BE THE HERO OF HEROES. LET’S TRAFFIC WITH LOVE, YOU KNOW HOW.” She signed off, “I love you all, Kate,” pressed Send, brushed her teeth, and went to bed. 
Shortly afterward, Del Castillo went to Tijuana, where a friend was undergoing breast-implant surgery. In the hospital, the popular talk show “Tercer Grado” was playing on TV, and del Castillo and her friend watched as the guests took turns denouncing her tweet. Carlos Marín, the editorial director of the publishing company Grupo Milenio, was particularly savage. “This actress wrote a truly stupid thing on Twitter,” he said, “and she displays an abysmal ignorance about the problem of cancer, the problem of AIDS.” He added that this “beautiful, lovely, great actress” was “encouraging the commission of crime.” 
For weeks, the Mexican public obsessed over del Castillo’s tweet, debating whether she was an apologist for the cruelty and bloodshed committed in El Chapo’s name. Her father, Eric del Castillo, who is also a well-known actor, defended her to the media but then e-mailed her a line-by-line critique of her manifesto. Her older sister, the journalist Verónica del Castillo, says that she angrily reminded Kate, “You are not Teresa Mendoza.” (A reference to the character she plays starring as a drug trafficker in “La Reina del Sur” (“The Queen of the South”)
Castillo and Diaz
She lamented her tweet by telling the New Yorker, “Fuck.” “I was so upset,” she said, of the reaction to her tweet. “You know, why are they crushing me? I’m not saying all of this is true. This is just what I believe!”

Castillo tells the story, in the late summer of 2014 she received an e-mail from one of El Chapo’s associates. About a project, but he was vague,  she blew him off.. until he said Soy licensiado de Señor Joaquín Guzmán Loera. (“I am Señor Joaquín Guzmán Loera’s lawyer.”) He told her that the drug lord, who had been re-arrested that February, was interested in making a movie about his life. He asked if she would come to Mexico City to discuss the prospect. She agreed and met with them on September 29th.

She says she was offered a book, film, series…whatever she wanted.  When she asked “Why me?” supposedly it was because she is outspoken, came from a great family, and because he was a fan of ‘La Reina del Sur.’ ”

On January 9, 2015, Guzmán signed over his story rights to Kate del Castillo, for a project to be co-produced by the Argentine film makers, Sulichin and Ibáñez.

In the article she goes into detail how Penn became involved, how she fears she was betrayed by them by not being included in the “journalist assignment” letter.  She states that Penn did not reveal anything about an interview for Rolling Stone magazine until they were in Mexico.

She claims that her computer did not keep the emails sent by Chapo’s attorney, and other assertions such as letters from El Chapo, which she gives the contents, but did not share an image of such letters.  The fact that Chapo is illiterate, and while in prison had a “letter writer”, so it is possible. 
Recently, Castillo shared her plans to go ahead with the film of Chapo.  No word if Penn will be playing the lead role as he planned.

    1. Point taken . I remember A Jr High drop out from Arkansas back in the 80's . Was a big developer out on interstate 30 in Dallas .Danny Faulkner was the name . Big deal at the time , a uneducated prodigy . Turned out to be a big scandal and he claimed he was just a front man. Bankrupt a lot of banks and done some time .
      My point is Chapo isn't a intellect . He has just done well as a criminal .

    2. He did not go to school, there was a travelling "rural" teacher sent by the government to go to a village in the sierras, each day. Once a week to La Tuna. When she stopped going there was no replacement so the eduation stopped.

      He was 8 years old.

    3. Education does'nt make a person. I dont support Trump but he dropped out and later went back 4 his G.E.D. You've got 2 admire those who rise above. Even though many of us don't approve of their actions.

  4. Every man wants to be remembered after death ,in this modern times a movie is a way to achieve some immortality .
    Although El Chapo is well known in Latin countries he is not as popular with los green gos.His weakness for women and the movie about his life got him caught.
    Kate Del Castillo is also using his capture for her own publicity .Mija keep in mind this man is a Cartel Boss ,anyday he thinks tou were responsible for his capture you become a victim

    2. Wants to be immortalized . Sure for the better part of a century everybody could tell you who pancho villa was .Times have changed . You can walk up to group of 20 people and ask who Pablo Escobar was and probably no one could tell you . Right now few can tell you who kim jong-un is . The era of being well known and immortalized by recordings is gone . In 10 years less than .0001% of the world will know who el chapo was .

      Gringo (/ˈɡrɪŋɡoʊ/, Spanish: [ˈɡɾiŋɡo], Portuguese: [ˈɡɾĩɡu]) is a term, mainly used in Spanish-speaking and in Portuguese-speaking countries, to refer to foreigners. In Spanish, gringo refers especially to someone from the United States, particularly a person who is a White American.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

      The word was originally used in Spain to denote any foreign, non-native speakers of Spanish.[8]

      I am Chicano and I don't claim to be gringo but my girlfriend from Sinaloa called me a gringo one time so idk it depends on perception I guess I'm def not a gavacho though that word is ugly

    2. He isn't hiding. He said he doesn't fear for his life and believes that the cartel isn't going to come after him for this. He was featured on 60 Minutes after the article was published.

  6. I think is ridiculous that she will try to make money with Chapo's story. I guess is all about the money.
    I know she is not stupid, but does she really believe Chapo was looking for a movie deal?
    Chapo was looking to go to dinner with Kate del Castillo and she was the meal.

    1. Well, as far as kate being the meal, it would be like pellejos pal gato, she may look cute at times, in person, she is not, and as she herself said, her overthere is the most boring thing in the world, but she has a big mouth, it made la gaviota and epn very unhappy, irregardless of the collective fack-ups...
      The murders, drug trafficking, heroin overdoses, kidnappings and extortions continue as unabated as the corruption of the mexican narco-politicians the US keeps on power...

    2. Whatever but she played her cards right and brought Sean Penn so she wouldn't get into any compromising positions with El Chapo.

    3. @7:38

      You're right, she is NOT stupid and she knew exactly what Chapo wanted. The stupid one is Chapo. He got caught because he wanted this girl so bad that he left his guard down. Now Kate has all the right to a Chapo movie and she didn't even have to sleep with him.

    4. Are u stupid ? Of course they slept together you idiot Chapo took her away in front of Pen that's when he got scared cause all the chapitos got in his face wow are u guys t had stupid to think that kate and Penn were in control please must be American

  7. I'm honestly tired of hearing about Kate Del Castillo. Chapo's in jail...end of story.

    1. then why did you gravitate to the story?
      The story has just begun....Chapo has a clean record in Mexico his convictions have disappeared...that is prob behind the extradition request.

      As for Kate I found this very interesting. it cleared up the mystery argentines and brought in oliver stone. Sean Penndejo is a fool.

      Delete
    2. 10:13 she started her tequila a few years ago, her novela was about 6 years moving ago and my point is after that novela, she started posting dumb shit about how chapo is the good guy and praising narco cultura. Her family is rich and famous and there is no need for her to be doing illigal business. Even her sister told her that she wasn't teresa "la reina del sur" to stop acting like that. So shut your pie hole!

    3. She thinks El Chapo Guzman is a better person than epn, and EL PRI, she is not wrong there, all else is chismes in my book.

  9. Still curios about the new chapo daughter . I'm sure since she came forward with the money laundering claim , she will either be shown real or fraud . Some people just don't get it . I know of several Mexicans living in the us that have gotten "lones" from people with money that may not be clean . These are just hard working people that know people in the area they come from . They don't even realize they have done anything wrong . They just work and pay it back . Maybe they will never be found out .

    1. 1:05pm Loan sharking is nothing new.

      Delete
    2. This is 1;05 . Not loan sharking . Loaning money earned by drug dealing and getting it paid back on installments . I would suspect this is done in a manner to make it look clean , thus come the term money laundering .
      Who knows maybe they are getting screwed but I know some that got it paid back . I know one that is doing well as a legitimate business but he really don't understand he was involved in anything illegal even though he knows it was a trafficker that loaned him the money.

  20. Despite all this circus, I can't believe the official story that he got too overconfident, started to believe the hype and slipped up. It's just so corny and stupid. There is no question he did the interview but I have little doubt that we are not being told close to the full story. The different officials (including in the DEA) have given contradictory details about the capture of Chapo, the manhunt and escape. It didn't even seem like they knew they were about to get Chapo because after the mochis raid the military said Cholo Ivan had escaped but then when they caught the two they only then said they had Chapo, then they said a local reported suspicious behavior and they staked it out, raided it and they found Chapo. Once again had no idea who was there. And then they say that they were listening to the people's phones and heard someone important was coming. Since Chapo's 2001 'escape', basically every time they say nearly catch or catch Chapo, or when Chapo escapes, the story has so many stupid explanations they don't make sense or at least pose too much doubt to believe the government even when there story could be credible.

  21. This is slightly off topic,but just to be clear about it..
