The grown sons of 'El Chapo' Guzman live quite luxuriously, at least it appears they do thanks to social media photos.
The grown sons of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman seem to live quite luxuriously despite their father’s meager ways. In case that name does not ring a bell, ‘El Chapo’, is, or rather was, the reclusive leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel, whose estimated wealth is about 1 billion dollars.
El Chapo was arrested recently, but before he landed behind bars, he was found in a basic apartment rented for 12 hundred dollars a month, with a minimally stocked kitchen and very little fancy stuff.
His grown boys Alfredo and Ivan Guzman appear to live a very different life. Pictures have been posted on both Instagram and Twitter featuring Alfredo and Ivan showing off expensive cars, gold covered automatic weapons, scads of money and attractive women.
It’s not yet known if the accounts legitimately belong to the men, but given that numerous selfies and photos show their faces, the pages appear to be moderated by them or someone who closely knows them.
There is one image that appears to feature ‘El Chapo’ along with others that depict gang warfare and small planes stockpiled with drugs.
Alfredo appears to be assuming control of the cartel with a U.S. Navy spokesperson commenting in 2012 he was ‘was coordinating the majority of the drug shipments sent to the U.S.’
