Sean Penn Calls Kate Del Castillo ‘Delirious’, ‘El Chapo’ Docu-Series ‘Cheap’

Sean Penn is going on a tirade against Kate del Castillo for the Netflix documentary “The Day I Met El Chapo” that details their encounter with the Mexican druglord. “This is nothing but a cheap, National Enquirer-esque tale spun be a delusional person whose hunger for fame is both tawdry and transparent,” a spokesperson for Penn told Deadline.

In the docu-series it is implied that Penn was the one that worked with authorities to reveal the whereabouts of Joaquín Guzmán Loera that ultimately led to his capture, which the actor finds dangerous to say. “It is reprehensible that, in their ongoing, relentless efforts to gain additional attention and publicity, Ms. del Castillo and her team (who have zero firsthand knowledge) have sought to create this profoundly false, foolish, and reckless narrative,” Mark Fabiani said in a statement to Variety. “The notion that Mr. Penn or anyone on his behalf alerted DOJ to the trip is a complete fabrication and bald-faced lie. It never happened, nor would there have been any reason for it to have happened.”

Sean Penn was able to see an advanced screening of the documentary and said via a spokesperson: “Mr. Penn just saw it and hopes to have the opportunity to participate; there are profound inaccuracies and presumptions presented in Kate’s story.”

Netflix fired back with a statement saying they allowed Penn to participate in the documentary, but he denied taking part. “Sean Penn was given the opportunity on multiple occasions to participate in ‘The Day I Met El Chapo’ and did not do so,” the statement given to Variety reads. “The events surrounding the now-infamous meeting have been well covered, including by Penn himself in Rolling Stone and his many public comments since. The only new ground we’re breaking with this series is to give Kate a chance to finally tell her side of this stranger-than-fiction story.”

Kate del Castillo on her end is giving her side of the story and talked about the criticism she has received from Sean Penn. “I said the same thing about his article, so he probably has a point a view, I have another point of view,” she said during an interview on “Good Morning America.” The Mexican actress also revealed she had nothing to do with El Chapo getting captured by authorities. “That I had nothing to do with him getting caught,” she revealed. “I don’t work for the government and I am just interested in my career and trying to do a good story and that was it.”

During the interview with the ABC morning show she also revealed that she had a sexual relationship with Sean Penn during the time they worked together. “I never fell for him, we had sex. Sorry but we are both adults, single, and something was going on but that was it, it was business,” she said. “Nobody asked me, and it was so stupid they were all thinking I had something to do with El Chapo and nobody asked me and I’m not bragging.”

The Mexican telenovela star said that she “totally” put her life in El Chapo’s hands and “he also did that” too. As for the night Kate visited the kingpin and he escorted her personally to her hotel room she said: “I think he wanted to have, probably, two minutes with me by himself and to be a gentleman. It was my only opportunity to tell him, let’s not forget what I originally tweeted and let’s do some good.” Finally, Kate revealed that her biggest fear that night was that El Chapo would “rape me or kill me.”
