Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar (Amando a Pablo, odiando a Escobar)

The relationship between Virginia Vallejo and the drug trafficker Pablo Escobar, as told by Vallejo herself.


In the early eighties, Virginia Vallejo was at the height of her popularity: she was a young and beautiful news anchor who was courted by the country’s top magnates. In 1982, she met Pablo Escobar when he was just an alternate representative of the Colombian Congress. The following year, they began a discreet and turbulent relationship that lasted until 1987. Over the course of those years, Vallejo would learn from Escobar the price of politicians and military officials in her country. Escobar, for his part, would gain insights into the management of power in Colombia from the privileged perspective of the only educated, upper-class woman he had ever dealt with.
