Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán admitted the only addiction he ever suffered from was 'women' and that he was the father of 23 children.
The revelations were made during a tell all interview with renown criminologist Mónica Ramírez Cano after Mexican security forces had captured the fugitive co-founder of the Sinaloa Cartel.
Ramírez Cano, who in the past profiled some of Mexico most infamous drug lords, shared a five-second clip of the interview session that was recorded in 2016.
She sat across from El Chapo and asked 'what have you liked the most Joaquín?' before the recording came to an abrupt end.
The complete interview session was never uploaded.

Ramírez Cano, who posted the video on social media Monday, said she asked El Chapo 'what are you addictions?' to which the jailed drug lord then replied, 'none, my only addiction are the women.'
