A revealing memoir of Colombian television journalist Virginia Vallejo's affair with the "King of Cocaine," notorious Medellín drug lord, Pablo Escobar. Soon to be a major motion picture starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. At 33, Virginia Vallejo was media elite. A renowned anchorwoman and socialite, and a model who appeared on magazine covers worldwide, Vallejo was the darling of Colombia's most powerful politicians and billionaires. Meeting Pablo Escobar in 1983, and becoming his mistress for many years, she witnessed the rise of a drug empire that was characterized by Escobar's far-reaching political corruption, his extraordinary wealth, and a network of violent crime that lasted until his death in 1993. In this highly personal and insightful story, Vallejo characterizes the duality of Escobar's charm and charisma as a benefactor to the people of Colombia, and the repulsion of his criminal actions as a tyrannical terrorist and enemy of many world leaders. Told from the present day perspective, and reflecting on her cooperation with the US Department of Justice, in 2006, as she testified against high-ranking Colombian ministers on trial for conspiracy and murder, Vallejo offers a compelling work of intimate reflection and critical journalism--a unique perspective on the Colombian drug wars and the endlessly fascinating figure, Pablo Escobar.

Now a major motion picture! Pablo Escobar was one of the most terrifying criminal minds of the last century. In the decade before his death in 1993, he reigned as the head of a multinational cocaine industry and brought the Colombian state to its knees, killing thousands of politicians, media personalities, police, and unarmed citizens. In the 1980s, Virginia Vallejo was Colombia’s most famous television celebrity: a top-rated anchorwoman and a twice-divorced socialite who had been courted by the country’s four wealthiest men. In 1982, she interviewed Pablo Escobar on her news program, and soon after, they began a discreet—albeit stormy—romantic relationship. During their five-year affair, Escobar would show Vallejo the vulnerability of presidents, senators, and military leaders seeking to profit from the drug trade. From Vallejo’s privileged perspective and her ability to navigate the global corridors of wealth and high society, Escobar gained the insight to master his manipulation ofColombia’s powerful elite and media. Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar chronicles the birth of Colombia’s drug cartels: the kidnappers, the guerilla groups, and the paramilitary organizations. It is, above everything, a great love story—a deep and painful journeythrough a forbidden relationship—that gives us an intimate vision of thelegendary drug baron who left his mark on Colombia, Latin America, the United States, and the world forever.

Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria was born on December 1, 1949 in Rionegro, the Antioquia Department of Colombia. His father, Abel de Jesús Dari Escobar, was a farmer and his mother, Hermilda Gaviria, was a teacher in an elementary school in the area. He was the third of seven children of his parents and began his criminal activities as a teenager. Some reports claim that he would steal gravestones, sand them down, and then resell them to smugglers. However, his brother denies that he used to steal those gravestones. His friends and family report that Pablo would often tell them that he wanted to become the president of Colombia. Instead, he became the world's most notorious drug lord.

For a quarter century, Luis Antonio Navia worked as a high-level cocaine transporter for all of the major Colombian and Mexican drug cartels, including Pablo Escobar’s Medellín Cartel, and flooded the United States and Europe with cocaine before his dramatic arrest in Venezuela in 2000 during the 12-nation Operation Journey. The story of Navia’s rise, fall, takedown, imprisonment, and redemption is expertly researched and told by acclaimed biographer Jesse Fink, who has gathered interviews with Navia, Navia’s family, and a dozen law-enforcement agents in the United States and Great Britain from agencies such as the DEA, ICE and Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise (now Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs). Told in vivid detail, this true crime story will captivate the reader from start to finish.

When we think of drugs, we immediately think of the old guard drugs like cocaine, heroin and hemp. Other than that, there are for some time synthetic drugs (XTC) made in many forms, colors and effects. We talk in this book about the ordinary old-fashioned drugs in the form of cocaine. WeOre going to expose what is behind and who are the true drug dealers. The old-fashioned drug is still the trade with which the super rich enrich themselves. Also, it is the elite who use a lot of this stuff. You can make it clear that most of the top in the business world, but also the politics and those who move into higher layers, are the permanent users of the cocaine stuff. Often in the most pure form and often used daily like a breakfast and dinner. But first I like to elaborate some things; what is cocaine and who are the driving forces behind these drugs according to world organizations of detecting drugs. Let's talk about drugs."

Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria was born December 1, 1949 in the city of Rionegro, Colombia. He was the son of Abel de Jesús Dari Escobar Echeverry and Hermilda Gaviria Berrío. Pablo's family moved to Envigado when he was young, where he went on to become one of the most ruthless criminals in history, responsible for the deaths of thousands of people and making billions of dollars from cocaine trafficking by setting up an intricate network of laboratories, transportation routes and distribution hubs throughout the United States and Europe. Young Pablo enters the drug business in the early 1970s with the ransom money as his starting capital.He works for other drug traffickers for his first few years.Fabio Resterpo, one of Medellin's biggest drug lords, is murdered in 1975.Because Resterpo's men were informed immediately after his death that they were now working for Pablo Escobar, it is believed that Escobar was responsible for this crime, despite the fact that this was never proven. Pablo Escobar did the dirty work that drug smuggling requires without hesitation.He was known for his bravery.Even though he was a rising drug lord, he never had a problem flying a plane full of coca paste more than a few times, mostly between Colombia and Panama.He decommissioned the plane he used to fly in those early years and hung it over the gate of his famous hacienda for good luck later, when his wealth reached legendary levels. His cocaine business had a very straightforward supply chain: He brought in high-quality coca pasta from Bolivia and Peru, processed it in Columbia into cocaine, and shipped it to the United States to be sold and distributed.Escobar was a smart businessman who made his business grow quickly and soon needed more employees.The Medellin cartel, an organization that gathered all of the criminal organizations in the suburb, was formed in this manner. The first drug cartel in history was the Medellin Cartel.Escobar took advantage of the opportunity to conquer and control a large market.The pilot who flew a plane for the Medellin Cartel could receive cuts as high as $750.000 per flight in a few years, depending on the quantity of drugs or raw materials he smuggled into or out of the country. His first import of coca paste cost only 45 dollars. It was not a secret that Pablo Escobar liked young women.His marriage to Maria Victoria Henao Vellejo, who was only 15 when he proposed to her, is evidence of this.The young couple needed the special blessing of the local bishop before they could wed.He and his wife had two children: Manuela and Juan PabloPablo Escobar had numerous love affairs, the majority with minors, even though they were married until his death in 1993. Between 1983 and 1987, he had his most well-known affair.Virginia Vallejo, his mistress, went on to become a well-known television personality in Columbia.When Columbian television broadcast a video in which she accused a former senator of instigating Pablo Escobar in her presence to eliminate Luis Carlo Galan, a presidential candidate, on July 24, 2006, she became the focus of a significant media scandal. Her biography "Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar" (Amando a Paul, odiando a Escobar) contains information about the King of Cocaine at his peak that no other biographer could have gotten.She testified as a crucial witness in multiple legal actions against politicians, including former Colombian presidents.The Truth Commission validated her statements.In connection with the Palace of Justice Siege, a high-ranking for-mer colonel and a former general were given sentences of 35 and 35 years, respectively, following her deposition.In the end, the United States granted her political asylum.
