A TLC cast crossover! 90 Day Fiancé star Veronica Rodriguez is dating fellow franchise costar, Kim Menzies’ adult son, Jamal Menzies, following her split with Justin Foster on 90 Day: The Single Life, In Touch can confirm.
“They’re having fun,” a source exclusively tells In Touch about Veronica and Jamal’s new fling.
The new couple is set to announce their new relationship during part 3 of the season 3 tell-all on Monday, December 12. 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates was first to report the news of Jamal and Veronica’s romance.
Jamal, 27, is currently appearing on season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? in his mother’s story line with rapper and Nigeria native, Usman “SojaBoy” Umar. Veronica, 36, made her franchise debut in her ex-fiancé Tim Malcolm‘s story line with ex Jeniffer Tarazona on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 3, but returned to the show with her own story line on season 3 of 90 Day: The Single Life.
During part 3 of the 90 Day: The Single Life season 3 tell-all on Monday, December 12, Veronica and Jamal confirmed that they are in an open relationship.
Veronica revealed that she is only seeing Jamal at the moment, though insisted she is open to dating other men but is too “lazy” to pursue anyone else. The reality star then noted that she hopes to get married again, which does not align with Jamal’s intentions of keeping things casual.
While Veronica said she has no problems with their current arrangement, Tim argued that his ex is “absolutely not” OK with Jamal seeing other women.
“She doesn’t feel comfortable saying yet, ‘Hey, you’ve got to get rid of the other girls,'” he said during the tell-all. “I actually can’t believe that you’re lowering yourself to that, that you don’t deserve someone who’s going to put you on a pedestal … It’s sad to me.”
Veronica’s fling with the 90 Day Fiancé alum follows her recent split from Justin during the 90 Day Fiancé spinoff. While sparks initially flew between the dad of two and the brunette beauty, an awkward run-in between Justin and Tim, 42, sparked a conversation between Veronica and Tim about “boundaries.”
“Every relationship you’ve been in since you and I split up, the main common point of contention has been one common denominator,” Tim told Veronica in conversation during a September episode. “And the same for me. Nobody’s cool with it. It’s not that we can’t be friends, but we’re gonna have to, like, distance ourselves.”
After Justin and Veronica shared a steamy weekend getaway, she discovered that the dad of two was considering a move to Florida with his ex and mother of his kids — just shortly after sleeping with him.
While the single dad insisted it was a “better move” for his kids as they would be surrounded by family, he asked Veronica if she would consider relocating.
“The question you’re asking me, is to prioritize your ex and child over mine,” the mom of one shot back during an episode that aired in October. “How can I move to Florida without those things being true … You’re asking a rhetorical question because you know the answer, Justin.”
After a heated conversation, the pair decided to pull the plug on their relationship. “I am so disappointed with how my relationship with Justin ended,” the Miami, Florida, native told producers in a November confessional. “It’s like another person that seemed like such a nice guy, but who turned out to be a jerk.”
