The ex-wife of legendary drug kingpin Frank Lucas — whose murderous exploits inspired the controversial movie “American Gangster” — was busted yesterday for allegedly selling two kilos of cocaine to undercover agents in Puerto Rico, The Post has learned.

Julianna Farrait, 70, was nabbed inside an unidentified hotel after handing over the drugs in exchange for $60,000 in cash, sources said.

“They say life imitates art and this arrest proves the point yet again,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge John P. Gilbride. “Like in the movie the ‘American Gangster’ Frank Lucas was known to have made millions of dollars peddling heroin throughout the streets of New York City.”
