Widow Of “Cocaine Cowboys” Star Jon Roberts Wants Half Of Coke Story Money

Andrea Noemi Roberts

The widow of original “Cocaine Cowboy” Jon Roberts is getting double-crossed in a deal Jon made to cash in on his life story … according to the lawsuit she just filed.

Andrea Noemi Roberts says Jon struck the deal with financial adviser Daniel Merandi and his company, M & M Financial Jon would get 50 percent from any TV or movie projects related to his 2011 memoir, “American Desperado.”

Jon died shortly after the book came out, but Andrea says she inherited the deal with Merandi.

Jon was a notorious player in Miami coke smuggling during the ’80 as told in the award winning doc “Cocaine Cowboys.”

Andrea’s fighting for every dollar, and with good reason.

Jon’s book has been linked to a Hollywood project with Mark Wahlberg, Peter Berg and Michael Bay attached … and it’s already been used to make a Telemundo documentary.

She’s suing to get the half she’s due now, plus anything in the future.
