Are ’90 Day Fiance’ Stars Angela and Michael Still Together? Update After Cheating Scandal
A roller-coaster romance! 90 Day Fiancé star Angela Deem and her husband, Michael Ilesanmi, have one of the most drama-packed relationships in the franchise. The couple has been in a long-distance marriage for more than two years, but after numerous blowup fights, they have sparked rumors of a possible split and even faced several cheating scandals. Keep scrolling below to find out if they’re still together.
How Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Angela and Michael Meet?
Angela and Michael started their 90 Day Fiancé journey on season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in 2018 after meeting online. They started dating long-distance shortly after and documented their first in-person meeting on their debut season. The pair continued to share their love story on season 3 and season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé and seasons 5, 6 and 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Angela and Michael’s love story was tumultuous, and they seemed to be constantly fighting over trust issues.
Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Angela and Michael Married?
Despite all of the drama, the couple got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony in Michael’s native Nigeria in January 2020. Once Angela returned home to Georgia, she filed for Michael’s visa that March. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the couple experienced major delays in the process.
However, it wasn’t all wedded bliss. The couple continued to fight and one of the biggest arguments they had was captured on the season 6 tell-all, which aired in August 2021. During their segment, Michael’s Aunt Lydia said Angela should have used the money she spent on weight loss surgery and plastic surgery to try to have a baby with Michael. Their conversation ended in a screaming match and Angela flashed the cameras with her new breasts after undergoing a boob job just one day prior to filming. Even though Angela and Michael’s marriage seemed to be hanging on by a thread after that explosive face-off, they were able to move past it.
In December 2021, Angela celebrated her birthday in Las Vegas with several of her 90 Day Fiancé franchise costars. While in Sin City, Angela was spotted by fans and one of them shared details about what she told them during a conversation.
“Her and Michael are still together and waiting on his visa. She was in [Las Vegas] for a birthday, [her daughter] Skyla was there too,” the Redditor posted alongside a photo of her posing with Angela at one of the casinos in Nevada.
That same month, Michael took to their shared Instagram account with a rare and heartfelt message to celebrate a special occasion, confirming they were still going strong albeit at a distance. “I’m sending this loving birthday greeting to my darling wife. I’m sorry I can’t be there with you to celebrate, but just know I’m counting down the minutes until I can,” the 90 Day Fiancé gushed.
The Couple Sparked Split Rumors in February 2022
Unfortunately, the couple sparked split rumors just one month later. Before joining the show, Michael and Angela had their own separate Instagram accounts. Since becoming reality TV stars, Michael had deactivated his profile and Angela updated her account to make it into a joint page for her and her husband to share. Michael and Angela continued to share a joint Instagram account for three years, and split rumors started swirling when Michael reactivated and started using his separate account in January 2022.
“A human being is a single being, Unique and unrepeatable. ‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world.’ #happynewyear2022,” Michael captioned his first post since reactivating his page on January 29, 2022.
Angela, for her part, changed her Instagram handle to her full name, removing Michael’s name from the account in the process.
On February 1, 2022, Michael continued to add fuel to the breakup rumors when he was spotted hanging out with 90 Day Fiancé costar Usman “SojaBoy” Umar in an Instagram video shared to the rapper’s page. SojaBoy and Michael are both from Nigeria, but fans were shocked to see them spend time together after SojaBoy and Angela had previously taken jabs at each other.
It seems Angela was upset that Michael was friendly with SojaBoy. One day later, she shared a screenshot of her husband and SojaBoy via her Instagram Story. “Birds of a feather flock together,” she wrote in the caption, while adding a laughing emoji over Michael’s face.
The “I Love You” rapper reposted Angela’s Story and made several claims about her and her marriage to Michael. “So, this scammer called (AngeDevil) now calling me and my innocent brother @its__mrmichael names after using him to film for over four years and used all his money from Cameo to buy yourself a house and still refused to take him to U.S. and leave him,” SojaBoy alleged via Instagram Stories. “Michael, don’t worry, I will personally take you to AMERICA.”
Angela followed up by posting a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation she seemingly had with Michael via her Story. “Calling me out and him not cool. I see [you] block me on IG,” he allegedly wrote said. She captioned the post, “Well, I hit a nerve. Truth always comes to light.”
What Happened During Season 7 of ‘90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After’?
When the couple returned for season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? in August 2022, it’s clear the couple’s relationship was rockier than ever. On their debut, Angela revealed she hadn’t seen Michael since their wedding in Nigeria more than two years ago.
“The biggest challenge our marriage is facing right now is the shady s—t Michael’s doing,” she told the cameras. “He hardly ever calls. And when he does call, it’s only about the visa or that he needs money. And on top of that, he’s put his Instagram up [despite] knowing I’m against it. He even went so far as to block me.”
While Angela began to suspect that her husband was “talking to other women,” she seemingly started a new relationship with a man named Billy, whom she met online.
“I don’t know how much more time I can waste waiting on Michael if Michael is starting to give up on our marriage,” the Hazlehurst, Georgia, native continued in her solo confessional. “Michael and I, we might really be through.”
The drama in their relationship reached a peak on the October 2, 2022, episode. Angela decided to travel with her friend Rene to pay Michael a surprise visit. When Angela and Rene showed up at his house in Nigeria, she was ready for a fight. Things escalated so quickly that Angela even damaged Michael’s car in the heat of the moment and they had a screaming match. The couple was separated by Rene and Michael’s uncle and both Michael and Angela broke down in tears after their altercation.
During the October 23, 2022, episode, the couple got into another argument when Angela crushed Michael’s hopes of becoming an influencer. After they argued over Michael not allowing Angela to read his Instagram DMs, he revealed he hopes to use social media to make money.
“I have no choice but to start making money on my own,” he said. “As a 34-year-old man in Nigeria, I’m expected to take care of my family. In my culture, it is what we do. We work. We have responsibility. We have bills to pay.”
“I don’t give a god d–k about no money, bitch!” Angela yelled as she threw her purse on the ground. “You opportunist!”
She further slammed Michael’s career aspirations in a confessional. “I don’t know how to say this without being rude, but you’ve got to be interesting. He doesn’t have charisma,” Angela said. “Michael blocked me on Instagram, so maybe his plan to be an influencer and make money off of social media is a coverup. The only reason Michael would block me is because he is flirting with women.”
Did ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Michael Cheat on Angela?
Early on in their relationship, Angela and Michael were rocked by a cheating scandal when he admitted to receiving oral sex from another woman. While Angela was initially hurt by the news, she decided to continue working on their relationship.
Four years later, on Season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Angela learned that Michael had been cheating on her with an unidentified woman during the December 18, 2022 episode.
After Angela returned to the United States following her trip to Nigeria, a friend informed her that her husband had been talking to someone else via Instagram for two months. The friend sent along proof of his infidelity with screenshots and voice notes.
“Not only since I was in Nigeria, but since I’ve come back, Michael has continued to talk to this girl,” she told cameras through tears.
Angela then played one of the voice notes that Michael sent to the other woman. “I’m trying to call you now. You’re not picking up. I’ve been busy trying to sort things out. Okay? Just trust me, please,” he said. “Also, I have some money coming to your side. I will let you know, okay? I will call you, please. I love you, and I miss you.” Michael’s message ended with him making kissing sounds.
“Can you believe he said that to this girl?” she asked. “That’s how he would talk to me. He broke my heart. He really broke my heart. He really broke my heart. I didn’t deserve this.”
Angela then admitted she was blindsided by Michael’s affair, revealing she believed their relationship was in a good place following her trip to Nigeria.
“Two weeks we’ve been on the phone like we used to, 24/7. The spark was there. The love was still there,” the TV personality shared. “I felt like we were on our way, getting ready to bring him here and being husband and wife. We loved each other again. I was happy. I was real happy.”
During part 1 of the season 7 tell-all, which premiered on January, 1, 2023, Angela returned to screens with a new vengeance. While Angela was unsure of her future with the Nigeria native, her daughter Skyla was ready for her mom to end the relationship.
“This man keeps showing you who he is and you ignore it,” Skyla told her mother as she prepped to leave for New York City for the televised special. In a private confessional, Skyla admitted she was “so angry” after hearing of Michael’s alleged infidelity.
“At that point, I was like, ‘I’m not trying to be nice to Michael no more.’ It’s there, it’s out in the open,” the Georgia native told producers. “You’re not there for Mama. You’re over here trying to invest in another woman.”
During part 2 of the tell-all, Angela opened up about the cheating scandal and said Michael had been sending the other woman messages while they were in Nigeria in their hotel room bed together.
“I’m confused. I can’t believe nothing he says now, I heard him tell another woman he loved her. He wrote a text that could get us in so much trouble, like, ‘Let me get to the states and I’ll come to you. I’ll handle Angie.’ He wrote that. Being a Nigerian, he knows that. He wrote that on paper. On text.”
Angela said he sent the message to the other woman after she returned home to the U.S., and she explained that Nigerians are stereotyped as marriage fraud scammers and that incident could lead to their visa to be flagged by immigration.
Michael admitted to sending the messages but said he didn’t mean anything he told the other woman and it was only a way to “flirt” with her. Later in the episode, Michael’s uncle Steven joined via video call. He revealed Angela reached out to him for help and Uncle Steven condemned Michael’s affair. He vowed to help the couple work through their marital issues and “resolve this conflict” as an elder in Michael’s community.
Why Is Angela Feuding With Soja Boy?
While Angela had a “secret weapon” coming for Michael, her feud with Soja Boy was also reignited as soon as she arrived at the tell-all stage.
“This goes back a couple years when they did Bares All,” Kim Menzies told host Shaun Robinson. “Because she thinks Usman’s a scammer. You know, anybody’s favorite word to throw in the hat when somebody’s doing well is ‘scammer.’”
While the San Diego native told Shaun that she wouldn’t “tolerate” Angela calling Usman a “scammer,” Soja Boy took it even further by saying Angela was the “worst thing to have ever happened to Nigeria.”
Despite Michael attempting to defend Angela onstage via video call, the “Zara” rapper urged Michael “help himself and get away from this prison” that he put himself in.
Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Michael and Angela Still Together in 2023?
On part 2 of the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After season 7 tell-all, which was filmed in September 2022 and aired in January 2023, Angela confirmed that she and Michael were still together despite his cheating scandal.
“Yes,” she told host Shaun Robinson.
However, Angela revealed she was planning to file for divorce from Michael during part 4 of the special.
“Right now, divorce is definitely on the table,” she told cameras after discussing Michael’s cheating scandal during the January 22 episode. “I’m definitely gonna file. That doesn’t mean I’m gonna sign.”
The TV personality added that she was “mentally exhausted” and “very hurt” by her husband’s cheating. ”With Michael’s lying and all, and all the stuff I just found out, I don’t think he’s ever loved me,” Angela noted. “I think he loves me ’cause everything I’ve done for him, but he can’t tell me why he’s in love with me.”
In the months following, Angela seemingly confirmed that she and Michael were on good terms and had seemed to work through his infidelity.
On November 5, 2022, two months after the tell-all was filmed, the Georgia native uploaded a TikTok alongside her husband with Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” playing in the background. In the video clip, Angela was seen lip-syncing the lyrics while Michael affectionately plants a kiss on her cheek.
She continued to prove that they were working on their relationship by sharing a video that consisted of photos of her and Michael via Instagram on December 1, 2022. As Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s “Let’s Make Love” played, the couple cuddled close to each other in the snaps and she gave each other kisses on the cheek.
However, it seems that they weren’t able to make it worth. In Touch broke the news that Angela and Michael called it quits in January 2023. “Angela and Michael are not together,” a source exclusively revealed.
