90 Day Fiancé season 8 cast member Michael Jessen posts a painful note on Instagram about his relationship with estranged wife Juliana Custodio.
Former 90 Day Fiancé star Michael Jessen moved fans to tears with his and Juliana Custodio’s latest divorce update. Michael, a divorced father of two, fell in love with the young model during a yacht party. Michael and Juliana’s journey from getting a K-1 visa to getting married was documented in 90 Day Fiancé season 8. What made Michael and Juliana’s relationship controversial is their age gap, with him being 43 and her being just 23 years old. Fans predicted this marriage was not going to last, and two years later, Juliana and Michael separated, while she’s having a baby with her new boyfriend, Ben, in Germany.
Entrepreneur Michael and Juliana lived together in his Connecticut home until the second half of 2021 when fans sensed trouble. Juliana posted a strange TikTok video in which she looked nervous and told fans to stop asking if she’s still married. She soon deleted all of the Michael-related posts from Instagram. The rumors turned true when, on their two-year wedding anniversary in October 2021, Michael confirmed that it was also their last wedding anniversary by posting a photo from their wedding. He called their marriage a COVID-19 casualty, but in her own statement, Juliana confessed that she didn’t feel like she was part of the family and instead felt like a maid. A month later, it was revealed that Juliana had a boyfriend and was pregnant.
Fans read about Juliana filing for divorce from her estranged husband, Michael, on Valentine’s Day. She filed for dissolution of marriage in Bridgeport, Connecticut. While Michael appeared bitter in his post about their separation, his new Instagram update talks about him moving on from Juliana. In his moving post, he wrote, “Tomorrow two people will be celebrating that I am finally out of their life for good…And they will move on…And so will I.” Michael confessed that he will not necessarily be celebrating but will continue to live life with all the new lessons he’s learned and the wisdom that he has gained.
“Sometimes that is all we can expect from life,” Michael added. In conclusion, he gave his “sincere best wishes and nothing but hopes of happiness” to Juliana and Ben while using their initials “JC, BH” and mentioning “their child to come.” Michael’s supporters reached out to him via the post’s comments to tell him how he “didn’t deserve” what happened. Someone told Michael that he’s so much better off without Juliana. Another person mentioned, “Always be the bigger person. Her loss.” A few hopeful viewers admitted that they thought Michael and Juliana were the 90 Day Fiancé couple that would have been long-term.
When Michael and Juliana’s 90 Day Fiancé relationship was reality TV fodder, many thought she was a gold digger and was in it for his money. But since their separation, Juliana has slammed many of her critics by explaining how she’s not only been working since the age of 8 but also had a thriving career in Europe when she moved to America on 90 Day Fiancé to stay with Michael. Recently, Juliana also had to deal with speculation surrounding the paternity of her baby, but her boyfriend, Ben, has supported her through the ordeal. Just like that, one more 90 Day Fiancé fairytale ended up becoming a nightmare. But with Juliana starting her new family, and Michael claiming to have moved on, fans can hope the former couple only sees better days ahead.
90 Day Fiancé airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EDT on TLC.
