According to various Mexican news articles, Alicia Machado, a former Miss Universe winner, had a love affair with Jose Gerardo “El Indio” Alvarez, a currently jailed capo who is believed to have fathered the beauty queen’s daughter.
According to Breitbart.com:
News about the love affair set off a scandal in Mexico in April 2010 when authorities captured Alvarez. At the time, multiple major news outlets in Mexico quoted court records, witness testimonies and sources within Mexico’s law enforcement to assert that Machado’s daughter was fathered by the fearsome capo.
Additional reports revealed that during the child’s baptism, the top leadership of the Beltran Leyva Cartel was in attendance–including the Beltran Leyva brothers and Edgar “La Barbie” Valdez Villarreal.
Machado has denied the allegations that she had a daughter with El Indio and has claimed that the father is a Mexican businessman by the name of Rafael Hernandez.
This year, Machado claimed that the Mexican government was going to release an official document clearing her name and legally proving that her daughter was not El Indio’s.
So far the Mexican government has not released the documents.
Machado was pulled into the U.S. presidential bid debacle when Hillary Clinton referenced Donald Trump’s comments about Machado’s weight gain in which he referred to her as “Miss Piggy.”
Clinton pounced on Trump’s uncouth remarks in effort to paint him as a sexist who viciously attacks and degrades women.
Clinton said Machado, who was born in Venezuela has since become a U.S. citizen and is planning on voting
for her in the November election.
