Jennifer Lopez is blasted as ‘disrespectful’ by ‘Cocaine Godmother’ Griselda Blanco’s son

Jennifer Lopez has been blasted by the son of ‘Cocaine Godmother’ Griselda Blanco over her planned movie on his mother’s blood-soaked reign at the head of a Colombian cartel.

Michael Corleone Blanco told that J-Lo and her Hollywood team have been ‘disrespectful’ and ‘offensive’ by not consulting over the projected blockbuster.

Griselda went from growing up in a slum in the cocaine cartel city of Medellin, Colombia, to ruling a $2billion empire stretching from the South American country through Miami, New York and California.

She grabbed power by being more inventive and even more ruthless than the drug lords emerging in the 1970s.

And she kept order with a gold-plated submachine gun studded with emeralds, while netting $80million a month.

At one point, it is reported she and kingpin Pablo Escobar were ordering constant hits on each other.

J-Lo, 51, is teaming with the same production company that created her 2019 hit Hustlers, which earned her a Golden Globes nomination.

The singer and actress will produce and star in The Godmother, which has no published expected release date. She has said of the project: ‘I’ve been forever fascinated by the story of Griselda Blanco and jumped at the chance to play her on screen.’

But the lack of consultation has angered Griselda’s only surviving son, who lives in Miami where his mother held a reign of terror in the city’s Cocaine Cowboys drug wars of the 1970s and ’80s. She is accused of being linked to 200 murders.
