El Chapo launches bid to have glam beauty queen wife come visit him in prison

Notorious drug lord El Chapo has launched a bid for his beauty queen wife to visit him at the supermax prison he resides in.

El Chapo, real name Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, is being held in a maximum security prison following his arrest for years of drug smuggling charges.

The Sinaloa Cartel leader is now lobbying for his wife to come and visit him while he serves life in prison, writing to a judge in the hopes of his request being approved.

He hopes both his former beauty queen wife Emma Coronel and his two daughters can come and visit him in the Florence, Colorado-based prison.

But it could prove tricky as Coronel, the third-wife of El Chapo, has been under house arrest since last June and will not be released on parole until September 13.

El Chapo argued in his letter for the freedom of his wife to cover a potential visit to the ADX Florence complex, BorderlandBeat reported.

He wrote: "From that date [September 13] on, she will be able to travel all over the country, since she will have probation."

His letter to Judge Brian Cogan also included a request for his two daughters to be part of the visit as they are "studying in Mexico" and are limited in their vacation days.

The former drugs lord wrote: "They are studying in Mexico and can only travel to visit their father on vacations, two or three times a year at the most."

Both children, two of at least 15 sired by El Chapo, are 12-years-old and hold American citizenship after being born in Los Angeles.

El Chapo's mother and siblings are unable to visit the convict, who was sentenced to life for a slate of crimes relating to his leadership of the ruthless Sinaloa Cartel, because they do not have a visa to enter the United States.

An official document was received by Judge Cogan, though it was not the first document the drugs lord had sent, with a previous letter complaining of being kept under strict surveillance by prison guards.
