90 Day Fiancé star Jasmine Pineda is known for her relationship with Michigan native Gino Palazzolo but that wasn’t her first time dating overseas! The Panama native introduced both fans and her fiancé to her Australian ex-boyfriend Dane during season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days — who also happens to live in her apartment building.
Who Is ‘90 Day Fiance’ Star Jasmine’s Ex-Boyfriend Dane?
“We were together just for a short period of time,” Jasmine told producers during her debut on season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in June 2023. “Dane is a good guy and he’s handsome. But I need chaos, I need passion. I need someone that is gonna give me that fire, you know?”
While the Panama native felt Dane was “too delicate like a prince,” the pair stayed friends following their breakup. However, she noted that Gino knew nothing about the relationship with her former romantic partner.
Jasmine also admitted that her relationship with Dane was closer than she previously let on as he lives in her apartment building. She maintained that there was nothing romantically going on between them.
How Does Dane Feel About Gino?
While Jasmine didn’t want Gino to get the “wrong idea” about her and Dane, it was possible he would because she called Gino “dirty” and said he thinks people are “the same” as him.
The mom of two recalled an incident on season 5 of the spinoff when Jasmine found out that Gino sent explicit, topless pictures of her to his ex-girlfriend to make her jealous, causing Jasmine to lose her job as an educator.
“That information was like, you know, spread among schools and I was like banned from teaching. He ruined my career,” she told Dane over lunch during the June 4 episode. In a separate confessional, the 90 Day Fiancé alum added, “Losing my job was a big blow for me because being a teacher was a huge part of my identity.”
Dane told his ex to consider if she really wanted to spend the rest of her life with Gino.
“You don’t wanna, kind of, force anything,” he responded. “I don’t know, I think you’re fantastic, any man would be lucky to have you. So you know, don’t settle for something that’s not up to what you want for yourself.”
Following Gino’s arrival in Panama, Jasmine revealed that Dane was away on a family vacation and there was no chance of the two running into each to other.
How Does Gino Feel About Dane?
During a night out, Gino decided to question Jasmine’s friends after Jasmine admitted to video chatting Dane earlier that day. However, at the time, Jasmine assured her fiancé that he was just a friend.
“Up to this point, I’ve never questioned Jasmine cheating on me,” he told producers during the July 9 episode. “But to be honest, I don’t know everything Jasmine’s been doing in the 18 months we’ve been apart. And with all the fighting with us, and now she’s being so sneaky about talking to this guy. That’s very suspicious.”
Gino later confronted Jasmine about her relationship with Dane during the July 16 episode after a day visiting the Panama Canal. While she admitted that Dane was her ex-boyfriend, she fiercely denied cheating on Gino.
“He’s a gentleman, he’s respectful, he’s very aware that we’re engaged,” Jasmine emphasized to Gino. “We’re not interested in having anything, you understand that?”
However, after Gino found out that Dane lived in the same building as Jasmine, he questioned whether the pair had been involved physically.
“We became like friends with benefits,” Jasmine explained of her and Dane’s relationship status post-split. “Just because the sex was good. But since I met you, that stopped. He’s just my friend and that’s it.”
Jasmine did admit to fantasizing about her ex because of how Gino rejected her sexual advances, “unlocking new levels of insecurities in her life.”
“So do I think about having sex with him, like, just think about it,” she continued. “It’s not that I fantasize about, of me me doing it, but I remember how it was like, having sex with him … if our sexual life were better, I would fantasize about is.”
Did Jasmine Cheat on Gino With Dane?
Though Jasmine initially maintained that she never cheated on Gino with Dane, she dropped a bombshell after a heated argument with her fiancé during the August 27 episode. Jasmine claimed that she had a video of herself and Dane being intimate together, which was allegedly filmed one month before Gino arrived in Panama. She threatened to show Gino the footage and even said she would be “going back” to Dane because he was so much “better” than Gino in bed.
Jasmine and Gino revisited her relationship with Dane during part one of the Tell-All on September 24. Gino expressed that it was inappropriate for Jasmine to talk to Dane about their sex life, but Jasmine said she felt rejected and wanted validation from a male perspective.
Additionally, Jasmine was asked if she had any other meetings with Dane. She admitted that her ex invited her to a “goodbye dinner” before she came to America, but she claimed the dinner did not escalate to kissing or sex. However, she did note that the dinner was on Valentine’s Day and that Dane brought flowers and a card. Still, she insisted they only had a platonic friendship and wouldn’t want to have sex because they had so much in the past and were “sick of it.”
Host Shaun Robinson also asked Jasmine if she really had a video of her having sex with Dane a month before Gino’s arrival. Jasmine admitted that she does have the video, but the sex happened before she got together with Gino. Gino asked to see the date on the video as proof. He also asked if she had videos with any other exes, and she said no.
