Infidelity claims. The Family Chantel star Pedro Jimeno filed for divorce from wife Chantel Jimeno (née Everett) in May after a rocky six-year marriage. In divorce documents obtained by In Touch, the Dominican Republic native cited that their marriage was “irretrievably broken,” though there may be more to the story. Did Pedro cheat on Chantel?
Chantel Everett Thinks Pedro Jimeno Is Cheating on Her During Season 4 of ‘The Family Chantel’
“Are you cheating on me?” Chantel asked Pedro during a July 2022 episode of the spinoff.
“You’re just leaving it to my imagination to run wild,” the Georgia native said during a confessional after finding a sparkly gold water bottle in her home that does not belong to her. “You don’t trust me. That’s it,” Pedro said, as he deflected the question.
In the scene, Chantel accused her husband of “leaving items in the house” that are not hers, telling her “it’s none of [her] business” when asked where he’s going, and “coming home drunk” after leaving his car elsewhere.
“When did I get to the point where my husband comes home at three in the morning, and I don’t know where he’s been. Is it because you’ve got everything that you could get from me and now, I’ve run dry?” Chantel pleaded.
“You’ve got your visa. You’ve got your money. You got your job,” the Georgia native listed, before confronting Pedro about his close relationship with his female coworker, Antonella Barrenechea. “You’re picking her up and taking her to work. You’re taking her from the car mechanic, you’re basically her do-boy and you’re at her every whim,” she said.
“You say the same s–t all the time,” he responded while continuing to deny any wrongdoing. “I swear to God, if I was cheating on you, I [would have] left the house a long time ago.”
Chantel Everett Accused Pedro Jimeno of Cheating in Her Divorce Filing Response
It appears that Pedro might not have been telling the truth in front of the TLC cameras, however. According to court documents obtained by In Touch, the former 90 Day Fiancé star also cited “adultery by the petitioner” as a reason for their divorce. In addition to the cheating allegations, she accused Pedro of “cruel treatment” including “physical domestic violence, as well as mental pain.” Like her estranged husband, Chantel claimed the marriage is “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”
A lawyer for Pedro did not immediately respond to In Touch‘s request for comment.
As In Touch previously reported, the pair were both issued a mutual restraining order after Pedro’s initial filing in May. They are both “restrained from doing or attempting to do, or threatening to do, any act that injures, maltreats, vilifies, intimidates, molests or harasses the adverse party.”
In December 2022, Chantel seemingly hinted her soon-to-be ex-husband wasn’t faithful after reposting a TikTok participating in the platform’s popular trend “Things my ex did WHILE cheating on me.”
In the video, the creator listed the things her partner did while being unfaithful — which included cooking breakfast in bed to picking out names for their future children.
Chantel and Pedro Face Off Nine Months After Their Divorce
“Going through this divorce has been the hardest time of my life,” Chantel said in a teaser clip for the “final chapter” of the spinoff. “I will never forget how it feels to be betrayed by someone that you love so much and now, he’s going to get what’s coming.”
“If you want to believe that I using you believe I using you,” Pedro said as he faced Chantel later in the season in his hometown in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
“You know what you did,” Chantel tearfully yelled back. “You were having sex with another woman.”
Did Pedro Cheat on Chantel?
While Pedro has maintained that he was never unfaithful to his wife during their marriage, Chantel claimed she had “definitive proof” of his infidelity.
“Somebody actually sent evidence to my lawyer that I’m not allowed to have for legal reasons,” Chantel explained on “The Sarah Fraser Show” on November 27, 2023. “So he did.”
The TLC personality further alleged she had evidence “without a doubt” and called him a “liar” for denying the claims on the spinoff.
