Q:

Does George Jung have a relationship with his daughter?

A:

George Jung, the notorious cocaine smuggler and subject of the Johnny Depp film 'Blow,' reportedly spoke with his daughter Kristina over the phone after his June, 2014 release from prison, according to the celebrity gossip service TMZ. Though 'Blow' includes a heavy focus on Jung's participation in the drug trade, TMZ describes that film's depiction of George's strained relationship with Kristina as the film's 'emotional core.'

Though the biographical film 'Blow' states that Kristina Jung never visited her father in prison, TMZ reports that, as of 2014, the two have been in contact for several years and that, contrary to the film, Kristina visited George several times during his prison term.
