But earlier this year he managed to BREAK OUT of prison . . . and he never turned up, even after a massive nationwide manhunt. Now we know why.
Turns out Giovanni dropped $18,000 on a SEX CHANGE to become "Rosalinda." And, as the cops put it, it was a, quote, "convincing sex change." They're right, we've seen the photos. Sex reassignment surgery, nose job . . . the whole bit.
Oh, and Giovanni also got himself some GARGANTUAN BREASTS. They really distract you from everything else.
Rosalinda also got a job. For the past two months, she's been working as a PROSTITUTE in Barranquilla, in northern Colombia. Random fact: That's SHAKIRA'S hometown. But Rosalinda's hips clearly DID lie. HEY-YO!
The cops finally busted Giovanni-slash-Rosalinda during a regular sweep for prostitutes in the area.
