Son of Griselda Blanco lashes out at Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez is slated to portray Griselda Blanco in a movie about Griselda's brutal reign at the head of a Colombian cartel.
Griselda's son, Michael Corleone Blanco said J-Lo and her team are 'disrespectful' for not consulting him.

Griselda Blanco went from a slum in Medellin, Colombia, to ruling a $2b cocaine empire. She grabbed power by being more ruthless than other drug lords in the 1970s. She kept order with a gold-plated submachine gun studded with emeralds, while netting $80m a month. At one point, it is said she and kingpin Pablo Escobar were ordering constant hits on each other. She is linked to over 200 murders, including the father of her son.

Michael Corleone Blanco 42, was a major figure himself in his mother's empire after she was given 25 years in the US for trafficking. He is said to no longer be in the cocaine business. His brothers Osvaldo, Dixon and Uber were all murdered.
