Manuela Escobar Daughter Of Pablo Escobar Bio, Net Worth And Other Facts

Manuela Escobar is the daughter of the notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. At the height of his career, the man dubbed the “King of Coke,” supplying up to four-fifths of all cocaine smuggled into the United States. In 1989, Forbes ranked Escobar as the 7th richest man in the world with an estimated fortune of $25 billion. His fortune was so amazing that in 1984 he offered to pay off Colombia’s national debt in exchange for amnesty. Pablo Escobar finally met his waterloo in 1993 when he was shot dead by the Colombian national police.

Manuela Escobar was the apple of her father’s eyes during his lifetime. He once lit $2 million to provide them with warmth on a cold night. Then what happened to Manuela Escobar after her father’s death? We have the answers.


Manuela Escobar was born on May 25, 1984. She is the second child of Pablo Escobar and Maria Victoria Henao. The first is a son, Juan Pablo.

Manuela Escobar was completely her father’s girl. Although Pablo was a terror who would have his mind on murdering anyone who dared stand in his way, Pablo was a fairly accomplished and loving family man. He literally moved the earth to give his family anything they wanted. He especially loved his daughter Manuela and tried very hard to show his love for her.

He once gave her a real pony for her birthday, albeit with fake horns and fake wings. Escobar reportedly once burned $2 million worth of cash to keep his daughter warm on a cold night in the mountains where he was hiding with his family. It is also believed that he tricked one of his mistresses into aborting his child because he had promised his daughter that she would be his last offspring.

Wealth (income and earnings)

Not much is known about Manuela’s net worth. Working as an engineer, it is fair to conclude that her fortune may not be that impressive compared to the fortune her father controlled. This is particularly evident given that her late billionaire father’s assets were confiscated by both the Colombian and American governments, while other properties were taken over by competing drug cartels.

She has apparently avoided being caught, unlike her mother and brother, who were recently charged with money laundering for a well-known drug lord in Argentina.

Other facts

After Escobar’s death in 1993, things fell not only for his cartel, but also for his immediate family. Denied refuge by several countries, Manuela Escobar and her family ended up in Mozambique, where they spent two weeks before moving on to Brazil and then Argentina under a new identity. Manuela became Juana Manuela Santos Marroquín and her brother Juan Pablo took the name Juan Sebastian Marroquin Santos. Her mother changed her name from Maria Victoria Henao to Maria Isabel Santos Caballero.

During their stay in Argentina, the family resumed their normal activities and middle-class life. Instead of being taught at home as before, Manuela and the others attended school like other young people. Her mother, using her new identity, got into the real estate business and became quite successful until her true identity came out, forcing her to go out of business and go into hiding.

Authorities finally caught up with her and she spent months in detention while her finances were investigated. She was eventually released after investigations cleared her of wrongdoing. This ordeal made Manuela Escobar withdraw from the meager social life she once again had in her shell. She quit public school and instead continued her education privately.

Little is known about Manuela Escobar. Mother and brother maintained some kind of public profile, broadcast documentaries, wrote books and gave interviews. On the contrary, Manuela Escobar is completely absent from the public and does nothing that puts her under the microscope.

While her brother, who is also an architect, and an author who has traveled around Latin American countries speaking out against gun violence and campaigning for drug reforms, Manuela has been firmly in her sights. This may be an attempt to escape the ghost of her notorious father. She reportedly lives under a pseudonym in North Carolina and works as an electrical engineer.
