90 Day Fiancé star Angela Deem is seemingly risking her marriage with husband Michael Ilesanmi to travel to Canada to meet internet connection Billy. But who is the new man in the Hazlehurst, Georgia, native’s life? Keep reading to find out everything we know about Billy.
Who Is ‘90 Day Fiance’ Star Angela Deem’s Mystery Man Billy?
During the debut of season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Angela hinted that there was trouble in paradise with her husband and revealed she began a new friendship with a man whom she met online.
“I’ve gave nothing but loyalty to Michael for five years,” the TLC star told the cameras during the September 2022 episode. “But at this point, I got to do what I got to do for me.”
The next scene cut to the mom of two addressing a man as her “sexy baby” on a phone call. “Hey angel,” he replied.
Angela admitted that she’s been leaning on Billy amid her marriage struggles. After she called Billy a “man of many trades,” she explained that he used to be a stripper in the ’80s known as the “Thief of Hearts.”
The reality TV personality also made it clear that she’s attracted to Billy. “Boy, does he still have the moves and the looks,” she told cameras about Billy while fanning herself.
Despite feeling a close connection, Angela and Billy have not yet met in person since he lives in Canada. However, the distance hasn’t stopped their connection from growing. “With Michael being so distant to me and making me feel like he’s using me as an opportunity to come to the U.S., I’ve had to find support in new people,” she said. “Billy makes time for me and he listens to me.”
How Did Angela Deem and Billy Meet?
Angela and Billy met after she reached out to him online to do a painting for Michael, who’s still in Nigeria as she remained in the United States.
She and Billy quickly became friends and started spending a lot of time chatting. They have even teamed up to perform TikTok dances together.
Michael and Billy Meet Via Video Call
After learning Michael’s visa could be approved at any time, Angela decided to surprise Michael in Nigeria in order to make a decision to continue or end their marriage.
Despite some intense exchanges, the pair were seemingly on a road to reconciliation until Angela admitted she had a crush on Billy and planned to visit him in Canada — prompting a video call between the two.
“It’s really important for me to help Billy because I can only imagine what he is going through with kidney disease,” Angela told producers during a November 2022 episode. “I have a sick friend who needs my help, I just want to help him, wash his dishes, cook his food.”
However, Michael felt his wife traveling to Canada was “taking it too far” and bluntly asked Billy if he had a crush on his wife.
“I adore your wife … I think she has a beautiful heart,” Billy replied over the video call. “But I do not have a crush on your wife.”
Are Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi Still Together?
Angela met Michael in 2017 on social media. They developed a long-distance relationship and she traveled to his native Nigeria to meet her online boyfriend in person for the first time. The pair eventually filed for Michael’s K-1 visa, which was later denied.
Angela and Michel then decided to exchange vows in Africa in January 2020, as it was the only way to bring him to the United State on a CR-1 visa, which allows the spouse of an American citizen to enter the country and obtain a green card.
Despite their nuptials, the couple – who made their 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days debut during season 2 – haven’t been able to reunite in the U.S. “Michael and I have been waiting on this spousal visa for two years and … we still haven’t got approval,” Angela explained during a June 2022 episode of 90 Day Diaries. “The wait is tough, so I just decided in the meantime to focus on my health.”
The TLC couple is seemingly still going strong despite their onscreen troubles! In December 2022, Angela took to Instagram to share a compilation of loved-up photos with her husband.
Angela added Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s “Let’s Make Love” for an added touch.
