Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 3.32.44 PMKate del Castillo is a successful Mexican actor who will be forever remembered in America as the person who brokered that interview between Sean Penn and El Chapo. It’s starting to look like her fate in Mexico is no less unfortunate now: She claims that the government of her home country is out to “destroy [her].”

While talking to Univision, del Castillo made a comment that, when translated into English, reads as, “I have no reason to give explanations to the press. If I don’t talk, it’s because my lawyers told me not to because the government wants to destroy me.”

It is true that del Castillo is under investigationArely Gómez González, the attorney general of Mexico, has stated that there are “indications” that del Castillo used money from El Chapo to build her tequila brand. del Castillo, who is an American citizen now, will testify at the Mexican consulate in Los Angeles sometime in the near future.
