In 2015, Alexia Echevarria divorced her first husband Herman Echevarria that was based on a mutual decision. Soon after she became close to Pedro ‘Pegy’ Rosello and found many things in common to enjoy but most of the time they remained distant. In place of divorcing each other, the pair decided to take some time apart or to distant themselves. Herman moved out of his family and Alexia started dating Rosello. Alexia noticed how Pegy paid around $42,000 for her engagement ring and that to be in cash. That left Alexia in doubt about him being involved in so much cash inflow. The former TV star of Real Housewives of Miami was interviewed for Netflix’s explosive documentary movie ‘Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami which narrated the rise and fall of Augusto ‘Willy’ Falcon and Salvador ‘Sal’ Magulota’s cocaine empire.
Pedro ‘Pegy’ Rosello met Sal and Willy when he was still a teen. His sister Gina Rosello was dating and later married Willy’s brother Gustavo ‘Taby’ Falcon.

He started smuggling drugs for Sal and Willy and eventually took a longer role in the distribution of drugs soon after the arrest of Justo Jay. Pegy was found to be laboriously involved in the smuggling of Cocaine.
How she met Pegy?

In one of her interviews, Alexia remembered that once during a night in his apartment, something out of ordinary happened to her when she remained with the question or doubt on their relationship. It was the time when Pegy got a call and he acclaimed that he got to go. Alexia replied, “what do you mean, you gotta go…?
He left so quickly after having a short conversation with Alexia that it left Alexia in doubt about her involvement in their relationship.
