El Chapo’s beauty queen wife has been arrested on international drug trafficking charges.

Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, who reveled in a luxurious lifestyle and stood by her Sinaloa Cartel kingpin husband throughout his blockbuster trial, was busted Monday in Virginia, accord to the Department of Justice.

Federal authorities arrested her in Dulles International Airport. She’s charged with conspiring to smuggle cocaine, meth, heroin and pot into the U.S., and helping her husband, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera, with his notorious 2015 tunnel escape from a Mexican prison.

She also planned another before Chapo was extradited to the U.S. under heavy guard in 2017, federal authorities allege.
