Pepe Aguilar’s Son Suffers From Mental Illness

José Emiliano Aguilar, Pepe Aguilar’s oldest son was arrested last March for trying to smuggle 4 Chinese men illegally into the U.S. Apparently they had agreed to pay between $3,000 and $6,000 each if they successfully entered the U.S. Pepe Aguilar explains that this was a cry for help because his son was suffering prior to this and is currently suffering from mental illness.Embed from Getty Imageswindow.gie=window.gie||function(c){(gie.q=gie.q||[]).push(c)};gie(function(){gie.widgets.load({id:’YrNGw_jdT0djd-_w0GxtBQ’,sig:’TYASF1PB2EyyK8P259kdzyox4vKmpS-SOliz4EpVnxc=’,w:’594px’,h:’404px’,items:’492868800′,caption: true ,tld:’com’,is360: false })});

“I understand the pain he was going through because after all of this happened I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know of my son,” says Pepe Aguilar to El Gordo y La Flaca. “Now I understand that in reality, he was crying for help, but to himself, because he wasn’t telling anyone anything until this happened.”
