Content of Chapo/Kate text messages leaked

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Posted by DD republished from Vice 

 I think the content of the text messages between Chapo and Kate and some with Chapo’s attorney are important in clarifying  what was behind the meeting and the interview.  The messages were leaked to the Mexican newspaper Milenio and their authenticity was verified by a “Mexican official”.

I am republishing some excerpts from a story by Vice News written by Andrea Noel about the text messages.  The original text messages from Milenio in Spanish may be viewed at this link. 
Due to time limitations and my not so perfect translation skills, I recommend going to Milenio’s site and reading all the text messages that Milenio says have been released.  You can Google translate it if you can’t read it in Spanish.   If any readers want to translate the text messages and send the transcript to me at [email protected]  I will add the translation to this post.

Excerpts from Vice News;

“A series of flirtatious mobile phone messages between Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo, appear to show the then fugitive drug lord being somewhat careless with his security, as well as ignorant of Hollywood pecking orders…

 They are spread over a period of weeks that begins a few days before his now notorious October meeting with Sean Penn that was brokered by Castillo and led to a controversial article in Rolling Stone….

They suggest that Mexico’s most notorious drug kingpin was less interested in speaking with the Oscar-winning actor — whom he doesn’t appear to have heard of — than the chance to see Del Castillo in person.

“I really want to meet you and become very good friends. You’re the best thing in the world,” he writes in one message from September, using the handle Papa.

Guzmán urges the actress to visit him at his hideout in the hills of Sinaloa,  “Have faith that you’ll be comfortable,” the message reads. “I’ll watch you closer than my own eyes.”

 The actress…says she feels “protected for the first time” and  says she feels “protected for the first time.”..
“I’m so moved you say you’ll look after me. No one ever has,” she writes in the thread that unfolds on September 25. “Thank you! I’m free next weekend!”

Guzmán’s attorney, Andrés Granados, facilitates the first message exchange. When Del Castillo departs from the conversation the lawyer and his boss discuss getting her a special cellphone for her communications with the drug lord.

In the messages, Chapo and his lawyer extensively discuss which phone to buy — “the nicest to look at” for the best price.

They settle on a Blackberry. But the capo — who specifically asked for a phone “in a woman’s color” — shows disappointment when his attorney repeatedly informs him that they don’t make it in pink.

The same conversation shows Guzmán apparently not sure who Sean Penn is, after Del Castillo tells him the actor has a “very important message he wants to give you in person.”

The lawyer informs the kingpin that, “This actor, fun fact, is the most well-known is the US,” and that “He’s the one who is drooling to come here.”

Guzmán asks, several times, “What’s that actor’s name?” And his attorney rattles off a list of movie titles, and release years, none of which seem to register.

“Have her bring the actor,” Chapo orders. “If she needs to bring more people, bring them. As she wishes.”

 The communication between Del Castillo and Guzmán published in Milenio resumes on October 10, after an 11-day interruption.

“Good morning, amiga,” the drug lord writes. “Sorry, I was sleeping.”

After weeks of messages, Chapo’s tone with Del Castillo becomes notably less reserved. He calls her “the hottest and most beautiful woman in the world” in one message at the end of October. “My mom wants to meet you,” he says in another. “I told her about you.”

The last text in the latest leaks came from Del Castillo on November 9.

“[Sean Penn] has already written the article, and guaranteed the cover we talked about,” the message says.

“Now you just have to approve it before it’s published!”
