Manuela Escobar's Net Worth

Her net worth remains unknown. While her father was one of the richest men alive at one time, after his death all of his assets were seized by Columbian and US governments. Later on, Manuela’s mother Victoria Henao, and her brother Juan Pablo were also arrested on charges of money laundering.

By all accounts, she lives a modest life, far removed from the days of luxury that she saw as a child with her father. Also considering she lives a private life out of the limelight, coupled with the illicit sources of her family’s wealth, no estimates can be made about her net worth.

Manuela Escobar’s Early Life

Manuela was born to Pablo Escobar and Victoria Henao in 1984. Pablo was one of the biggest drug lords of his time, amassing a wealth of billions of dollars. She was born into extreme wealth, but considering that she was only 9 years old when her father died, she spent a lot of time with him on the run.

In the last years of his life, while Pablo was on the run, Manuela along with her mother and brother were staying at a hotel in Columbia after they were denied asylum by many countries and it was during their stay in the hotel they found out about Pablo’s death.

Life with Pablo

Pablo Escobar’s name has been etched into the annuls of history as one of the biggest drug kingpins of all time and a major narco terrorist. His name was once included in the list of the world's richest men, with billions of dollars to his name and it is alleged that at the height of his power, his cartel was raking in $70 million every day, although that figure sounds quite exaggerated.

Despite being a brutal drug kingpin who was responsible for thousands of deaths, Pablo loved his daughter and gave her everything she wanted. It is said that Manuela once asked for a unicorn and instead of telling her the truth, he got her a white horse with a horn attached to the top of the horse’s head.

In another anecdote, it is said that while on the run Manuela who was a child was cold and to keep her warm, Pablo burned $2 million as he did not have any wood or other fuel for the fire. This goes to show that despite all his wrongdoing he was a loving father to his daughter.

Life After Pablo

Shortly after Pablo’s death, his wife Victoria tried to flee the country with Manuela and her brother. They went through several countries but were denied asylum everywhere including in countries like Brazil, Germany, South Africa, Peru, and Ecuador to name a few.

They eventually settled in Argentina in 1994 and changed their names. Manuela Escobar started to go by the name Juana Manuela Marroquin Santos, her brother changed his name to Sebastián Marroquín, and her mother to Victoria Henao Vallejos and tried to stay away from prying eyes.

But eventually, they were discovered living in Argentina and again came to the media and authorities’ attention. Both her mother and brother were eventually arrested for money laundering and their names have made the news now and then.

Manuela Escobar’s life now

Considering that she is the only member of Escobar’s family who has never been charged with a crime and has never been in the media or not much is known about her, we can say that she lives a quiet and private life. 

From what the sources tell she lives in Argentina, and despite the speculations that Escobar left her and her brother millions of hidden dollars, she lives a very modest life. Similarly, while many TV series and movies have been made about Pablo’s life in which she has been portrayed as a little girl, we don’t get to see her on TV now that she is an adult.
