Drug dealer George Jung served nearly 20 years in prison before his death in 2021.
Who is George Jung’s ex-wife Mirtha?
George Jung was married to Cuban-born Mirtha from 1977 to 1984.
She was instrumental in some of his crimes.
She was also part of a huge drug cartel that smuggled drugs from Colombia to the United States.
Mirtha was addicted to drugs and was imprisoned because of it.
She used her time in prison to get clean and was released in 1981.
Mirtha said she wanted her daughter to lead a drug-free life.
George and Mirtha were portrayed by Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in the 2001 crime thriller Blow.
Blow became available to Netflix subscribers in April 2022.
Did George and Mirtha have children?
During their marriage, the couple had one child, Christina Sunshine.
Viewers learned in the 2001 film Blow, a biographical film about George’s life, that he hadn’t spoken to his daughter in years.
However, reports suggest that all changed before the former drug lord was released from prison.
In 2016, George posted a picture with Kristina on Twitter and wrote, “I can’t live without my #heart.”
Did George Jung Remarry?
George married his second wife, Ronda Clay Spinello, who came to public attention in 2016 following his arrest for violating probation.
He died at his Massachusetts residence on May 5, 2021.
Following the news, Jung’s Twitter account tweeted a quote from the cult film.
The post read: “May the wind always be at your back and the sun on your face, and the winds of fate carry you aloft to dance with the stars. 1942-2021.”
The outlet claims that Jung will be cremated, but no information about a funeral has been made public.
