Journalist Olga Wornat sparked controversy after publishing her investigative work ‘El último Rey‘ (The last king), which talks about the life of Vicente Fernández.
Recently, an Argentinean journalist revealed that the Sinaloa Cartel would have tried to avenge the kidnapping of the “eldest of the little Portillos.”
Due to the above, the controversies related to the Fernandez family are protagonists in the media. One of the key moments was the kidnapping of Vicente Fernandez’s son.
In addition to the above, another popular situation was the alleged links with drug trafficker Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Coronel, who was also known for being one of the leaders of the Sinaloa Cartel.
Regarding the case of the kidnapping of Vicente Fernández Jr., the journalist explained in an interview for ‘Sale el sol’ that the idol of ranchera music had received a message from the Sinaloa drug lords.
Vicente Fernández Jr would have received a message from the Sinaloa Cartel
“After 121 days, after Vicente returned to the ranch, some time passed, and through Gerardo, the bosses of a cartel, precisely the Sinaloa cartel, sent a message to Vicente Sr. They told him that if he wanted to, they would kill even the diaper boys because they knew them and they were the majority of the Sinaloa cartel”.
Despite the possibility that the ‘Charro de Huentitán’ would get justice for the kidnapping of his son, the response was shocking, according to Olga Wornat.
“Vicente said, ‘no, I already have my son. That is the only thing that matters.’ These gangs had nothing to do with crime, they were linked to cartels, but they were marginal to the famous singers, and let’s not forget that they also attend the palenques”.
As it will be recalled, Vicente Fernández Jr. was deprived of his freedom for four months in 1998, during which time negotiations regarding his release were unknown.

That kidnapping left an important mark on one of the Potrillos because the criminals amputated two fingers of his left hand that were sent to his family to pressure the ransom.
