Manuela Escobar is the only daughter of notorious yesteryear Colombian drug lord and narco-terrorist Pablo Escobar, often referred as ‘The King of Cocaine’. Her life so far is no less than a thrilling story as she experienced things that one would probably never imagine in the wildest of dreams. She was the apple of her father’s eye. Pablo Escobar, considered the wealthiest criminal in history, would go to any extent to fulfil even the smallest wishes of his daughter. It was also rumoured that once he burned $2 million to keep his little princess warm. Manuela who was then considered a spoilt little girl of her daddy had all the lavishness of the world in her little hands. However, this fairy tale life ended when her father was shot and killed by Colombian National Police when she was just nine years old. Things changed drastically following her father’s death that saw her fleeing from Colombia with her mother and brother to escape reprisals. The three of them travelled to different places including Brazil, Ecuador, South Africa and Peru before taking refuge in Argentina. Manuela changed her name to Juana Manuela Marroquin Santos and since then has almost led a quiet and private life away from the limelight.
