Steven Assanti is arguably the most controversial — and quite frankly, hated — star to come out of My 600-lb Life. The 36-year-old, who used to eat six pizzas a day before joining the show, started his weight loss journey at 734 pounds and would throw tantrums, secretly order pizzas, abuse painkillers, and go off on YouTube rants. Now, it appears as though he found someone to tolerate his erratic lifestyle.
Just two weeks after Valentine's Day, Steven wrote on Facebook, "Good morning friends and to the best girlfriend in the world Stephanie Sanger I love you baby with my soul n heart," he said on Feb. 28. "I want everyone to continue to know your the reason why I look forward to my future, our future and I hope it grows bigger, your the best baby real talk. Keepin ten toes down fellas...have a good day...1..."
Although Stephanie's account is set to private, Inquisitr reports that she's a massage therapist. In response to Steven's post, she wrote, "I am truly blessed, so lucky to have found a soul that matches mine so completely❤️ We have so much to look forward to and I love you, you are my happiness ❤️ Thank you baby boy."
While the two seem head-over-heels for one another, other commenters question their relationship. "Is this like a catfish oredeal [sic] lol....have u even met her?" one person wrote. Another added, "She must be his drug dealer," and a third chimed in, "Have u and Stephanie met yet?" to which he replied, "Next week." Hmm...
Still, some came to the couple's defense. "Congratulations Steven I'm truly happy that you have somebody by your side," wrote another. A second added, "Super awesome!! You guys will be cute together! Be good to her." We just hope these two are happy!
