Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s wife posted a photo of herself wearing a Star of David necklace online Wednesday — despite hastily removing it in court a day earlier in case anyone thought she was Jewish.
Former beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro posted an image to Instagram of her sporting the confusing bling as she strutted into Brooklyn federal court for her drug lord hubby’s trial Tuesday, alongside song lyrics in Spanish that translate to: “Many times I asked forgetting how to forget.”
Coronel had removed the necklace in court that day after The Post queried her about it, with a member of the defense team explaining: “She just didn’t want you to report that she was Jewish.”
Her husband’s defense lawyers insisted the six-pointed star pendant was supposed to represent the elements of nature, not make a religious statement.
On Thursday, Coronel once again wore the accessory inside the courtroom — but didn’t have it on display as she entered the courthouse that morning.
