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 was in a long-distance marriage for more than two years, and eventually endured a brief split. 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.

‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Angela and Michael Appeared on ‘90 Day: The Last Resort’

Fans got to catch up with Angela and Michael on 90 Day: The Last Resort, which premiered on TLC on August 14, 2023.

The Last Resort follows couples that have “reached their breaking points” and are now making a last-ditch attempt to work through their issues. The stars will participate in “a couples retreat to determine whether or not they can heal old wounds,” while they will also unpack their “issues with trust, sex, jealousy, anger, and intimacy” with the help of professionals.

In a trailer shared on Instagram on August 4, 2023, Angela video chatted with Michael to show off her revealing one-piece swimsuit. However, her husband wasn’t a fan of the look. “No, no, no, no. You see all your body,” Michael said. In a confessional, Angela added, “I’m a sexy meemaw, but I guess I can compromise for the sake of therapy. 

Later in the video, Angela and Michael had a tense moment as she confronted him with divorce papers. “I do love you, Michael, with all my heart,” she said, tearing up. “But these are divorce papers.”

During the September 25, 2023, episode, Angela and Michael had a major breakthrough in their marriage while participating in therapy. After she confided that she had divorce papers ready to give Michael, the therapist asked her to “put those divorce papers aside so that you can give the retreat the best opportunity without having that threat hanging over him.”

Angela admitted she was at the “point where I’m done” before Michael virtually joined his wife to address his past cheating.

“I know I’ve faulted her, I’ve wronged her, but yet she still [finds] a place in her heart to forgive me and still be with me,” he said. “Baby, I love you so much, you know that. And I’m sorry for everything.”

Michael explained that his mother died shortly after Angela learned he cheated. Despite their problems, she traveled to Nigeria to be with him. He explained that her support during the tough situation made him want to work on their relationship.

“Last year I just felt like he was using me, really, ’cause I never thought he would do what he did,” Angela said through tears. “I just thought he was opportunist. I believe him now, I just needed to hear it from his heart.”

The session concluded with the couple promising to have “no more secrets” in their relationship.

Angela and Michael made strides in their relationship during therapy; however, their relationship hit another bump when costar Jovi Dufren decided to video chat Michael as he, Asuelu Pulaa and Ed Brown were at the strip club. 

Michael immediately hung up the phone when he realized where the men were as he said he was still trying to fix his marriage with Angela. After Michael called Angela to tell her what happened, she was convinced he cheated on her virtually. 

While this prompted Angela to threaten Michael with divorce papers, Jovi later told Angela that the Nigeria native was respectful and didn’t look at strippers during their phone call. 

Despite their issues, Angela and Michael recommitted to their marriage on the October 2023 season finale. 

“I came here thinking that Michael to do all the work,” Angela said in a private confessional. “But I need to work on not getting as angry as I do with my husband and working on our relationship at this couples’ retreat just saved us from divorce.” 

Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Star Michael Move to the U.S.?

After six years of long distance, Michael arrived in the U.S. to be with Angela in December 2023. While the couple has yet to confirm that they’re together in the States, 90 Day Fiancé blogger Shabooty took to X on December 22, 2023, with an alleged text exchange with a fan who claimed to run into Angela and Michael at a Food Lion in Georgia.

The fan took a photo with Angela and claimed that she said Michael was waiting in the car, so they went to say hi. The person also claimed that Angela wore a ring on her finger and said she and Michael got engaged. When asked if Michael was in the U.S. “for good,” the fan replied, “Yea that’s what she said.”

Then, on December 25, 2023, a fan on Reddit shared a photo of Angela and Michael checking out at a Walmart. The picture was allegedly taken in Georgia.

Did ​’90 Day Fiance’ Star Michael Go Missing?

Two months after Angela and Michael were allegedly spotted together in America, she announced that he went missing.

Michael’s been missing since the 23rd. The police are involved, we can’t find him. Michael left everything here. I know that there’s people probably think, ‘Oh, maybe he just left.’ But like, nothing not any ID, nothing to show his name on it, no clothing, not a toothbrush,” Angela said in a February 26, 2024, YouTube live video. “Zero point zero zero. No wallet, nothing. Clothes on his back is what he left with on Friday.”

The same day the mysterious news broke, 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates claimed that Michael has been in the U.S. since around Christmas 2023.

90 Day Fiance’s Michael Found After Going Missing

Hours later, John and Angela went live on YouTube and revealed that she received a call from police letting her know Michael was found safe. However, they told her that he was “in fear of his life” and didn’t want Angela to know his location.

“[The police] were contacted by Michael. They verified it with him,” John said. “He did have a burner phone or another phone that nobody knew about and on that phone, he had pictures of his passport that he left. They verified his ID. It’s him.”

Angela said that she was “f–king mad as hell” that Michael was seemingly hiding from her. Meanwhile, John said of Michael’s fear, “In the two months [since Michael arrived in America], Angela and Michael went to California for over a week, they went to New York, they went to Florida. It’s not Monte Carlo but over the course of seven weeks, I’d say no one was being locked up here.”

Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Michael and Angela Still Together in 2024?

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.

The split was brief, however. In March 2023, In Touch exclusively revealed that the two were back together, with an insider confirming the reconciliation.

“Michael did cheat on her, and Angela got back with him,” the source told In Touch. Just a few short months later, Angela seemingly confirmed that she and Michael were back together, posting a cryptic stitched photo of the two of them alongside a heart emoticon on Instagram with the caption, “QUEEN HAS SPOKEN.”

Angela confirmed she was still in a relationship with Michael as of January 22, 2024, after posting a throwback photo with him and his family.

“Mias yall,” Angela captioned the Instagram post.

However, things changed after Michael’s arrival in the United States in December 2023. After the news of his February disappearance and reappearance hit social media, Michael took a two-month hiatus from social media before returning to the platform and debuting a selfie without his wedding ring on May 3, 2024.

It seems the couple hasn’t patched things up, given that Angela posted a revealing article titled “Why Michael Ilesanmi Doesn’t Deserve Sympathy” the day before his return to social media.

Angela captioned the reposted article with “#Truthwillshine.” In a follow-up comment, she added, “I will say this. It doesn’t matter if the truth is told; we live in a time where people applaud the wrong until it affects them or their family, and then they post that s–t.”

Weeks later, Michael continued to hint he was single by sharing a video via his Instagram Stories titled, “Why Are You Still Single?”

That same month, Angela and Michael made their 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 8 debut. The spinoff documented the couple as they interviewed for Michael’s spousal video.
