Kate del Castillo Could Face Money Laundering Charges Due to El Chapo Ties

Kate del Castillo continues to be in hot water, in relation to the recent recapture of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.

This week, the Mexican actress has officially been subpoenaed by the Mexican Attorney General’s Office for her alleged involvement with the world’s most notorious drug kingpin.

It all started last week when the Mexican newspaper Milenio published what they said were a series of “flirtatious” text messages between Del Castillo and El Chapo.

These messages date back to November, a time when Chapo was still a wanted man. They also come before Del Castillo arranged a seven-hour interview between Chapo and Sean Penn for Rolling Stone magazine.

The exchange between the three was what reportedly led to the cartel leader’s capture by Mexican marines earlier this month.

Del Castillo is now being subpoenaed, also as a result of the release of these text messages. In them, a reported conversation came to light between Del Castillo and one of Guzman’s lawyers, Andrés Granados Flores, who suggested El Chapo could invest in the actress’ new brand of tequila, Honor del Castillo.

Last week, Del Castillo took to Twitter to address the controversy surrounding her and her relationship with El Chapo. She wrote:
