These Real-Life Celeb 'Ride Or Dies' Can Compete With El Chapo's Loyal AF Wife

He's got a real one, but so do these stars.

The internet is convinced that Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s wife, Emma Coronel Guzmán, is seriously a ride-or-die chick! 

Recently, the beauty queen, who married the Sinaloa cartel kingpin on her 18th birthday in 2007, took a stand for her husband saying he’s a “simple” and “humble” man, and that she blames prosecutors and the media for making him seem like a criminal mastermind.

Never missing a day of her husband’s trail (until today that is) Mrs. Guzmán claims during an interview with Telemundo, that she never noticed El Chapo, who is in an ongoing drug trafficking trial in Brooklyn federal court, doing anything illegal. 

“I think it’s what any wife would do in my place, be with her husband in difficult times,” the 29-year-old said. “In one way or another so that he feels and sees me present and feels my support.”

Talk about having your man’s back…

    In 2008, when Remy Ma was found guilty of two charges of assault and sentenced to eight years in prison, her ride-or-die, soon-to-be husband, Papoose, never left her side.

    Seriously holding it down while she was on lock-up, Remy’s rapper husband made sure she had everything she needed—not only while she was incarcerated, but also when she returned home! 

    This couple, who just welcomed their first child together, is definitely a "ride or die" duo.

    When Gucci Mane received a felony conviction for a gun charge in 2014, it was said that he gave his then-girlfriend, Keyshia Ka’oir, $2 million to remain faithful while he served time. 

    According to Keyshia, “He did not pay me to be faithful. That is just dumb,” she shared with The Post. “Gucci is not that type of a man,” adding, “I did have more money for him when he came home, and I will just leave it at that.”

    On BET’s The Mane Event, we learned by the time he got back, she had flipped his $2 million into $6 million with her successful lipstick and waist trainers business.

    While “Sister, Sister” actress Tia Mowry is living her best life in Hollywood, her soon-to-be husband, actor Cory Hardrict, was struggling with “odd jobs” and living in an empty studio apartment with no furniture. 

    “I was waiting on a bus stop—after I shot my first film. Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride,” he told Blogxilla. “I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since. They took me to Inglewood, so that’s how that relationship started. We were friends, we started dating and it just went from there.”

    Seeing the potential in Corey, Tia married him in 2008 after dating for six years.
