Dynamic duo. 90 Day Fiancé star Angela Deem and her rumored husband, Michael Ilesanmi, are still going strong. The TLC alum spoke out about their relationship in a new interview on June 17, revealing they are very much together and in the process of trying to get his visa approved so he can come to America.
“Getting rid of him is not easy,” she joked to Entertainment Tonight. “Because that’s real love, you know? Let’s face it, being on the show four times, he could’ve moved on a while back. I’ve learned that he really truly does love me.”
The star, 54, also responded to criticism about their romance. “I’m inviting [viewers] to see our journey, I’m not inviting you to tell me how I live my journey,” she explained. “At the end of the day, Angela is going to do what she wants to do.”
“Reality is, I have pushed his buttons to the limit, and who couldn’t be in love with me to go through what he’s gone through with me, you know?” the TV personality noted. “I mean, I know that some of the things I do is really chaotic but any woman who has been hurt in the past — and not just one time, but my age — we’re going to be on guard. And maybe I’m on guard too much but at the end of the day, Michael can tell you there’s nothing that I wouldn’t give him if I could.”
Back in February, the second part of the season 7 tell-all aired, and the previously filmed special showed just how much their blossoming romance bothered those closest to Michael, 31. In previous episodes, the Nigeria native defended his leading lady after one of his friends claimed she is “trashy.”
During the tell-all, his former friends hopped on a Skype call and said they were initially all for Michael’s relationship with Angela, but they noticed some red flags along the way they felt were a cause for concern. It was claimed she “changed” over time, and on top of that, she was accused of having a bad temper.
After the “trashy” comment was addressed, Angela made sure to let the guys know she didn’t care what they thought about her. “I’m the classiest, trashiest bitch you’ll ever meet … Kiss this white, trashy ass,” the Maury alum said while rising to her feet. The Skype call was ended shortly after, so Angela and Michael agreed to continue taping the special.
Despite the criticism over their relationship, he revealed his main priority is to come to the United States to be with Angela, even after his K-1 visa denial.
At the moment, they are still in a long-distance romance. However, the couple did recently take a big step, as it’s reported they tied the knot in January.
Afterward, the reality star took to Instagram to share an obituary for her late mother, Glenda Standridge, and it seemingly confirmed that she and Michael got married as he was referred to as Glenda’s “son-in-law.”
One thing is for certain: these two always keep fans coming back for more!
