Emma attended a private high school at which she was mostly interested in modelling, and dreamt about becoming a famous model or actress. In 2007 aged 18, she competed in the Coffee and Guava Festival beauty pageant held in Canelas in Durango, for which each contestant had to throw a party. Emma organized her’s on the Three Kings Day and eventually won the pageant, becoming a beauty queen.

Upon matriculating in the same year, Emma chose not to pursue a college degree, but married Guzman, and has reportedly been a housewife, although staying away from media attention.

Love life and marriage with Joaquin Guzman

Emma allegedly met Joaquin during the beauty pageant she attended in 2007, and it’s said that he travelled to Canelas specifically to meet her.

Rumors suggest that they agreed to marry on that very day.

Sometime in the summer of 2011, Emma entered the Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, California, and there gave birth to her and Joaquin’s twin daughters – his name wasn’t written on the girls’ birth certificates, as Joaquin was back then a wanted man with a bounty of $5 million for his capture offered by the US Department of State. In 2016, Emma was interviewed by Anabel Hernandez, an investigative reporter, and she begged for her husband’s life, claiming he was in danger.

Most recently on 22 February 2021 at Dulles International Airport, Emma was arrested on charges of importing and distributing illegal drugs, and was also accused of having helped her husband try to escape from a Mexican prison in both 2015 and 2016.

Who is Joaquin Guzman?

Joaquin Archivaldo ‘El Chapo’ Guzman Loera was born in La Tuna, Badiraguato Municipality, Sinaloa, Mexico, on 4 April 1957 – his zodiac sign is Aries and he holds Mexican nationality. He’s the former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, and is believed to be amongst the most powerful drug traffickers of all time.

He was raised in La Tuna alongside his four brothers and two sisters by their parents Maria Consuelo Loera Perez and Emilio Guzman Bustillos. The family was very poor when Joaquin was growing up, and he had to drop out of elementary school to help his family’s finances by selling oranges. He eventually turned to cultivating opium poppy, which was then sold in Guamuchil and Culiacan, however, his father most often spent all the money on women and alcohol. Aged 15, Joaquin created his own marijuana plantation, and in his early 20s left his city to join organized crime.

He started off by working for the drug lord Hector ‘El Guero’ Palma, most often in charge of transporting drugs.

Because of his style (killing people who disobeyed or tricked him by shooting them in the head), Joaquin gained the respect of his superiors, and was in the early ‘80s introduced to Felix Gallardo, who was amongst the most powerful drug traffickers in Mexico. He eventually started working directly for Felix, however, after Felix was arrested in 1989, several cartels were created and Joaquin and two others took charge of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The cartels soon began feuding, which resulted in numerous members being killed, and when the Tijuana Cartel tried to take out Joaquin, they accidentally killed Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo, the cardinal and archbishop of Guadalajara.

The authorities believed Joaquin was connected to the murder, and thus put a $5 million bounty on his head. He was arrested on 9 June 1993 by the Guatemalan Army, and extradited to Mexico where he was sentenced to spend 20 years at the Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1, while he was eventually transferred to Federal Center for Social Rehabilitation No. 2, both maximum security prisons.

After around eight years in jail, in 2001 Joaquin escaped but was arrested again in 2014 when he was named ‘Public Enemy Number One’ by the Chicago Crime Commission. It’s believed that by the time of his arrest, he had smuggled more drugs into the US than anybody else in history.

On 11 July 2015, Joaquin escaped again, but on 8 January 2016 was once again arrested, and  extradited to the US, where on 12 February 2019 he was found guilty of all charges, and sentenced to a life in prison and 30 more years, while he also had to forfeit around $12.5 billion.

As of March 2021, Joaquin is at The US Penitentiary, Administrative Maximum Facility, serving his sentence.

He has married three times – his two former wives were Griselda Lopez and Alejandrina Salazar. Joaquin also dated Lucery Sanchez and Zulema Hernandez, and has eight children.
