Molly, 45, revealed she met Kelly, 41, on Instagram as he was one of the many men who have slid into her Direct Messages after she appeared on previous seasons of the hit TLC reality TV series. While she was getting tons of messages from men online, Molly says there was something “different” about Kelly, which is what prompted her to respond to his DM.
Kelly is from Brooklyn, New York, and works as a cop. After talking online, Molly decided to visit him in NYC and they spent about three days together. They hit it off, and Molly invited Kelly to visit her at her home in Woodstock, Georgia, where she lives with her youngest daughter, Kensley, and two female roommates.
While Molly seems smitten with Kelly, she was still keen on learning more about him and his past as she found it suspicious that he doesn’t have children and has never been married.
Molly was introduced to fans on season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé, where she documented her love story with ex-husband Luis Mendez. The former couple met while Molly was on a girl’s trip to his native country of the Dominican Republic. They quickly fell in love and Luis proposed to Molly. She filed for the K-1 visa, which would allow him to legally enter the United States as the fiancé of an American citizen.
Their relationship took a turn almost as soon as Luis, 30, touched down in the states. The couple clashed over cultural differences and the way Luis treated Kensley, 10, and Molly’s eldest daughter, Olivia. After a blowout fight, Molly kicked Luis out of her house and he went to stay with his brother in New Jersey. He returned after several weeks, but the couple split for good after another big fight. They documented their nasty split on season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?
Molly filed for divorce from Luis in January 2018 after only six months of marriage. Their divorce was finalized that May. Just four months later, Luis exclusively confirmed to In Touch that he remarried another woman. The couple appears to still be together and are living in New Jersey.
During an appearance on discovery+’s 90 Day Bares All, Molly speculated on how Luis was able to move on so quickly after their divorce. “She was in Jersey, where his brother was. So, it was either a family friend or he did know her before he came here and he used my money to get here,” Molly said. ” So, that’s kind of where I’m at, and it’s dead wrong.” WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW!
On the February 28 episode of 90 Day: The Single Life, Molly’s new man Kelly arrived in Atlanta to visit her at her home. During a dinner date, Molly was on a mission to find out why a “hot, good career man” like Kelly was still single at 41 years old.
“I mean, I had my few past relationships, but it just didn’t work,” Kelly said. Molly then asked if he’s ever been married or if he has kids, and Kelly said, “No.”
Molly seemed skeptical, then noticed that Kelly was rubbing his hands while he spoke. When she asked why he was doing that, he replied, “That’s what I do.”
“Molly’s asking a lot of questions to me because I guess from her previous relationships, guys lie to her,” Kelly said in his confessional. “I’m both reserved and cautious. That’s a Brooklyn thing, we don’t trust anybody right away. In due time, I hope she gets to know that I’m not those type of guys she was dealing with in the past.”
During their meal, Molly told Kelly she was just trying to figure him out because she believes he is “too good to be true.” She also urged him to tell her the truth, even if it “sucks” because once trust is lost, it’s hard to gain it back. She then asked if he was ever in a relationship where he was “crushed” by his partner.
“Yeah, I mean, I was hurt [in] a couple, [in] a handful of relationships, I was hurt. But you live and you learn. You move on,” he said. Molly then grew suspicious of how quickly he answered her question.
“Communication is key to having a really good relationship. Spill the beans! You know, tell me what you did. Tell me what you don’t like. Tell me what happened. What did they do that made you not want to be with them anymore? Maybe it’s a tick, maybe it’s a something, maybe they didn’t cook for you, maybe they didn’t pay attention, maybe they cheated. What happened? I need to know more,” Molly said in her confessional. “We gotta dive deeper. I really hope there’s not a reason why Kelly has kinda kept the door closed on his past.”
It looks like fans will have to wait to find out the truth about Kelly!
