Virginia Vallejo Net Worth: How much is she worth?

Though there is no specific estimation of her net worth, she is speculated to be worth between the range of $3 million to $5 million. She made this sum from her journalism and book-writing career. 

It must be noted that her involvement with the notorious Colombian drug lord, Virginia Vallejo in the 1980s also contributed to her wealth. She was said to have been approached by Escobar’s associates to write a book about his life but she eventually became romantically involved with him. 

She overlooked his involvement in the drug trade due to her feelings for him. Their relationship lasted for five years during which time she became a confidante and advisor to him. She has said that she tried to use her influence to persuade him to leave the drug trade and seek a more legitimate path, but that he was ultimately unwilling to do so. 

It is quite unfortunate that she was simply a pawn in his game and that she had to flee Colombia due to her association with him.
