(SI) – He almost got away with it, but there was only one problem. 57- yer old Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman Loera, the world’s most wanted man and Mexican Cartel Leader wanted the world to know his story. El Chapo is the biggest drug lord in history. A multi billionaire that admits to supplying more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world.
In an article written by Sean Penn for Rolling Stone, Chapo says, ” I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats.” As a matter of fact he sent engineers to Germany to learn how to build the tunnel he used to escape a maximum security prison.
That was 6 months ago and up until now avoiding capture is something he seemed quite skilled at. But the idea of a movie detailing his captivating life would ultimately lead to the end of the fugitive lifestyle that led him out of his spacious mansions and into the confines of a condo/hotel that he shared with his wife and children.
Who is El Chapo? Up until now he called himself a farmer but the world knows that he is the head of the Sinaloa Cowboys – Mexico’s most dominant drug cartel. His organization smuggles multi-ton concaine shipments from Colombia through Mexico and into the United States by air, sea and road. He has distribution cells in the U.S. and drug exports in Southeast Asia.
Why do they call him El Chapo? Because he is only 5’6. It’s a spanish nickname for ‘shorty’.
El Chapo’s net worth? 2009-2011 Forbes magazine ranked the drug lord as one of the most powerful people in the world, the second most powerful in Mexico, just after business tycoon Carlos Slim, who’s worth over 70 billion dollars. El Chapo’s net worth is over 4 billion.
Murderer? El Chapo allegedly has claimed to have directly or indirectly caused the deaths of thousands of people. The Sinaloa cartel is known to be the most ruthless crime organization in Mexico. He will reportedly face federal charges involving money laundering, kidnapping, drugs distribution and violence.
On The Run – El Chapo was jailed in 2001 but managed to escape reportedly with the help of paid guards through either a laundry cart or dressing as a woman. After 13 years on the lam he was finally arrested in Feb. 2014 but managed to break out of a maximum security prison in July 2015, through a secret shower hatch that led to a 1-mile tunnel that had been built leading from his cell to a piece of property outside of prison grounds. His escape was elaborate with lighting, ventilation ducts and a waiting motorcycle.
On Friday, the cartel boss was captured in a daring 4am raid by Mexican marines and was returned to Altiplano jail. The double Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn’s meeting with El Chapo led to the gun battle in which he was captured in Los Mochis Township, Sinaloa, Mexico.
Mexican actress Kate del Castillo who befriended El Chapo through social media and letter correspondence when he was incarcerated, brokered the deal for Sean Penn to interview El Chapo Guzmán who wanted to make a film about his life. During a visit to Los Angeles, del Castillo met Penn through mutual friends and discussed El Chapo’s idea for a film and arranged for them to meet.
The sensational meeting took place deep in the Mexican jungle in October and was arranged by Penn, Mexican actress Kate del Castillo and a fixer, with the permission of the Sinaloa cartel.
The U.S. has filed at least seven extradition requests in six different states for Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman to be extradited but justice officials warned that his lawyers were likely to ‘milk it’ by firing off different appeals at different stages of the extradition battle to prolong the legal tussle.
The Mystic River star said he did not turn El Chapo in because the drug lord’s trust ‘was not to be f***ed with’.
‘I take no pride in keeping secrets that may be perceived as protecting criminals, nor do I have any gloating arrogance at posing for selfies with unknowing security men. But I’m in my rhythm. Everything I say to everyone must be true,’ Penn wrote.
Penn and del Castillo are now under investigation in Mexico.
And considering the CIA tapped Sean Penn’s devices to catch El Chapo a lot of people are now wondering if Penn set El Chapo up.The Central Intelligence Agency is openly cooperative with Hollywood.
It would hardly be the first time the CIA had tapped a Hollywood worker for their connections to take a different approach in an international political case.
The actor met with the world’s most wanted drug lord in the jungle to ask him questions such as ‘do you dream?’ and ‘how would you define yourself?’
And then just hours after the Sinaloa cartel leader was detained by Mexican marines, the Rolling Stone published a lyrical 10,000-word account of their meeting.
Supposedly the entire ‘clandestine horror show’, as Penn put it, was part of a research project to develop a Netflix-style drama about Guzmán and his prison break.
Though Penn insists he went to extreme lengths to hide the meeting from authorities, the details have sparked widespread speculation that he was in fact tapped by the CIA to locate the fugitive criminal – just as screenwriters were enlisted to make Argo to free US hostages in Iran in 1979.
(SL) – It’s been a blind item for weeks. Who is the A-list actor that is HIV positive? Fear of an epidemic was set considering the high caliber of the person and now we finally know who it is….Charlie Sheen. Sad either way because it doesn’t take a thousand lays to get HIV…just one.
The real heartache, however, is how many women did Charlie Sheen put at risk. The actor confirmed his status on the Today Show and claims he has had unprotected sex since becoming aware of his condition and adamantly stated that all of his partners were fully aware of his health. But, there is at least one woman who claims she had no idea.
One of Sheen’s recent exes, Bree Olson, told Howard Stern that he NEVER mentioned it. Shortly after Olson appeared on Stern’s show another one of Sheen’s sexual partners, Natalie Kenly, came forward to say that the actor never told her either that he is HIV-positive. On the other hand, another claims that she was 100 percent aware even to the point that she was taking antiretroviral medication to be with him.
A total of six women are reportedly planning civil lawsuits and a lot of people are wondering if he will be criminally charged for potentially exposing his partners to HIV. It won’t be easy. In California it will be difficult.
One has to prove not that that person knew but intentionally tried to hurt you. Charlie’s timeline is under scrutiny. He told the Today Show that he learned of his status just 4 years ago after experiencing headaches and night sweats. Charlie said, “It’s a turning point in one’s life.” Overall, It’s unclear when Sheen learned of his diagnosis.
(SL) – Sytonnia plays Dr. Gavin in award winning director Stephen ‘Stix’ Josey’s new drama ‘The Hills’.

The killer is also on trial for trying to kill his best friend’s son Jeremiah Matthews JR, a few years later.
Through this journey Attorney Lee finds himself in a fight for his life as the killer is now targeting him. Attorney :Lee realizes he should of let Harris meet his fate instead of trying to right a wrong he did to Harris years ago. At the end of the day, will Justice be served? Or is there something Attorney Lee doesn’t want authorities to find out?

(Daily Mail) – Lupita Nyong’o resembled a golden goddess clad in Valentino on her second Vogue cover,
which hits newsstands next Tuesday. ‘What an honor, joy and THRILL it was to work on this October issue!’ the 32-year-old Oscar winner wrote to her 1.7M Instagram followers.
Photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the Non-Stop actress – styled by Tonne Goodman – in Paris at the Schiaparelli House and the Picasso Museum.
The discrimination continued while the 12 Years a Slave star attended Massachusetts’ Hampshire College at age 20.
‘I realized that my skin color was making some people see me differently,’ the Mexican-born, Kenyan-raised actress recalled.
‘As Africans, we don’t grow up with a racial identity.
We grow up with cultural and ethnic identity before racial identity. I never used the word black as a child. It was never a thing. When was I ever discussing black? Why?’
Now an undisputed fashion icon, Lupita fronts Lancôme and relies on her stylist Micaela Erlanger for vibrant red carpet ensembles.
(Daily Mail) – They’ve been linked to one another for a matter of months – but Lewis Hamilton has finally spoken out to address rumours that he has been dating Rihanna.
In an interview with E!, the 30-year-old Formula 1 star denied their relationship was anything but platonic, despite putting on a flirty display in Barbados together last month.
‘You know, I’ve known Ri for a long time,’ Lewis said. ‘We’ve been friends for a while. We get to hang out every now and again…otherwise, we’re just good friends.’
The couple were romantically linked ever since they were spotted flirting at the annual Crop Over festival in Barbados in August.
They then got cosy as they enjoyed a day of water sports on the island together and were spotted exiting 1Oak nightclub in NYC separately where it’s believed they had dinner together.
Then on August 14, the 27-year-singer and Lewis added fuel to the fire when they were spotted arriving at a nightclub in New York City within minutes of each other.
The pals attempted to go incognito in contrasting outfits as they stepped out to The Griffin in The MeatPacking District.
Lewis is single since splitting from his girlfriend of seven years, Nicole Scherzinger at the start of the year.
A source close to the star told MailOnline at the time: ‘It was a mutual decision. The long distance kept them apart for long periods of time.
The Daily Mail Reports, In March, she told Now magazine that she was looking forward to new ventures.
‘I’m a very spiritual person and I’ve been seeing all these messages saying that even when it’s a new phase, we tend to keep in the old way of thinking,’ she told the magazine.
‘So this year I’m embracing change and looking ahead. I’m just trying to think in a new way and try out new things.’
