Infamous drug lord El Chapos glam ex-lawyer launches new career as singer

The former lawyer of infamous cocaine drug lord El Chapo has found a new career far away from her past life.

Puerto Rican beauty Mariel Colon, 30, released her debut single in Mexico earlier this week with an ironic name.

La Abogada translates to The Lawyer, and comes accompanied by a video filmed inside a court house.

The sultry song appears to be some kind of passionate love song.

After Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was imprisoned for life in 2019, Mariel took a break from the law to focus on a career in showbiz.

The talented attorney said in a statement: “Whoever knows me knows that since I was little I wanted to be a singer, it is a subject that I was passionate about.

“I have always been postponing many things, many stages in my life to finish my professional career as a lawyer.

“In fact, during the case of Mr Guzman I had to give up going to an audition.”

Now she says she wants to inspire young people by showing she can take on two careers at once.

She added: “I think I can do both.”

So far, Mariel has not been able to get in touch with her notorious client, but says she hopes he will support her.

From the age of 11, Mariel began taking part in talent shows at school and at the age of 15 she began taking singing lessons.

But as she grew older, she took a different carrier approach and entered law school.
