Former beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro was the perfect picture of loyalty as she sat in the gallery of a Brooklyn courtroom watching the trial of her drug-kingpin husband, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
The US-born narco queen had been an implacable fixture during 11 weeks of hearings, dutifully coming to court each morning to support her hubby — with the pair even wearing matching velvet crimson blazers one day to demonstrate their unbreakable bond.
Dripping in designer duds and perfectly primped with contoured cheekbones, Coronel hardly flinched even when Guzman’s former mistresses took the stand — except to cackle when one of them broke down in tears.
But Thursday, Coronel’s fealty to the world’s most feared drug kingpin and his Sinaloa cartel, now allegedly operated by her stepsons, appeared to be faltering.
She pleaded guilty to felony drug-trafficking charges against her, signaling a possible deal with prosecutors in exchange for a sentence lighter than the maximum she faces — life in prison.
