90 Day Fiance: Michael Jessen Blames Covid-19 For His Separation From Juliana!
Season 7 stars Michael and Juliana got married after they appeared on the show. A majority of TLC viewers were happy to see them together and the fact that they beautifully handled their blended family situation. However, the couple ended up separating in less than two years of their wedding. Jessen took to his social media on the day of his second anniversary with Custodio. In a dramatic caption, he suggested that the time they spent during quarantine due to the Covid-19 outbreak caused some differences between them. Hence, he explained how the pandemic drew them apart, and Juliana ended up leaving him.
Well, in screenshots taken by 90daythemelanatedway, Michael also explained how his love for Custodio “remains true and will always be there”. However, he also suggested that Juliana has “moved on and have quickly found someone new”. Towards the end of the post, he wished well for his now ex-wife. But, fans think that the TV star was inciting cheating rumors. Previous allegations against Juliana include her being a gold-digger. Now that she has left her, Michael’s fans think that the reason for their separation could be his poor financial condition.

After Jessen revealed his statement on social media, a lot of people started targeting Custodio for leaving him. However, when the latter spoke about her side of the story, the fanbase is shifting towards her. In her statement on social media, she revealed that the pandemic wasn’t the only thing that brought distance between the couple. She revealed that the family went through a hard time financially. At that time, Juliana was the only one working, which suggests that Michael went unemployed for a while. Hence, Custodio had to take the responsibility of helping Jessen, his ex-wife, her husband, and their kids.
However, despite that, Juliana wasn’t a part of the family anymore. Moreover, she claimed that she started “feeling like a maid”. Another strong statement from her new post includes, “ It was toxic to a point I was not living the life I wanted to live”. Eventually, Custodio decided to leave Michael and his family. She also countered Michael’s claim that she had found “someone new”. The 90 Day Fiance star expressed that she had only “found happiness within myself”. On the other hand, Juliana also asked her ex-husband, “Stop making me feel guilty to put myself as the most important person because this is how we supposed to do”.
