Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar’s son has sensationally claimed singer Frank Sinatra was his dad’s business partner.
Sebastian Marroquín described the legendary crooner as a ‘better cocaine dealer than singer’ in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper.
He said the American artist was one of his father’s partners in Miami.
Asked how he could be so sure of the truth of his extraordinary claims, Marroquin told respected newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo: ‘There are more singers than you can imagine that began their careers thanks to the sponsorship of drug traffickers.
There are no receipts, just words. I know because I was very close to my father and he and his partners always spoke about that.’
He added: ‘I can tell you that Sinatra was a better cocaine dealer than a singer. He was one of the partners of my father in Miami.
‘Drugs cartels only exist below Mexico’s border with the United States.
‘Where is the Miami cartel? Or the New York cartel? Who is the head of the Chicago or Los Angeles cartels?
‘Each kilo of cocaine that enters the United States is converted into eight with the help of poison. There’s a great amount of hypocrisy when it comes to drugs.’
