Kate del Castillo is finally admitting what everyone else already seems to know about her relationship with reputed drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Del Castillo added throughout their discussions she always made it clear to Guzman that she wouldn’t be taking any of his money from him to complete their project and was working to secure financing on her own.

The first time she laid eyes on Guzman, del Castillo remembers being mesmerized by how different he looked then from what she expected.

Del Castillo admits she was touched by the way Guzman took time to answer questions she and Penn sent to him on a video he had personally delivered to her.

Not long after that, Guzman was recaptured by Mexican troops, and del Castillo hints her nightmare truly began.

Mexican authorities are investigating reports del Castillo may have taken money from Guzman for her tequila company, Honor del Castillo.
