Over it? The Family Chantel star Pedro Jimeno may have just finalized his divorce from Chantel Everett, but is the Dominican Republic native already dating and have a new girlfriend?

Why Did Pedro and Chantel’s Marriage End?

After six years of marriage, Pedro filed for divorce from Chantel Everett on May 27, 2022, In Touch confirmed. 

Their marriage hit a boiling point in season 4 of the spinoff as Pedro would often call his wife “lazy” and felt she wasn’t as supportive as he had been to her in the past. Meanwhile, Chantel felt her partner was spending a lot of time at work, leading her to feel neglected.

After a trial separation, Pedro asked Chantel for a divorce and moved out into his own apartment one day later. Following Pedro’s departure, Chantel allegedly took $256,000 from their joint bank account leading to a dramatic confrontation on the season finale — which ultimately led Pedro to file the divorce paperwork. 

An attorney for Chantel had “no comment” when reached by In Touch regarding his claims that she took the money, which were mentioned in a previous motion.

Did Pedro Jimeno Cheat on Chantel Everett?

Throughout season 4, Chantel had her suspicions about Pedro’s close relationship with a coworker in his real estate office, Antonella Barrenechea.

‘The Family Chantel’: Does Pedro Jimeno Have a New Girlfriend?

“One night, I off work the entire day, cleaned the house and start to cook. At 8:30, I called you, asked you where you were and you were at the mall with Antonella,” Chantel said in a July 2022 episode. “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.”

Pedro denied cheating on Chantel with Antonella, but the Atlanta, Georgia, native still felt that Pedro had not been faithful during their marriage. Six weeks following Pedro’s initial filing, Chantel filed her own counterclaims and cited the reasons for their divorce as “adultery by the petitioner” and “cruel treatment.”

Chantel and Pedro returned for season 5 of the spinoff in November 2023 and faced the aftermath of their messy split.

“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.”

The series will seemingly document Pedro’s new life as a single man as the clip then cuts to Pedro and his little sister Nicole Jimeno’s best friend, Coraima Morla, meeting for drinks. In the past, Coraima hadn’t been shy about her crush on her friend’s older brother.

“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.”

Does Pedro Jimeno Have a New Girlfriend?

The real estate agent broke his silence on his dating life in a November 2023 interview. “I keep all my dating and stuff private,” he told the Associated Press when asked if he had moved on romantically. “When the moment comes, it’s gonna be revealed. But right now, I try to keep things a little private.”

The TLC personality also reiterated that there was no chance of “any reconciliation in the future” with Chantel.

Pedro may not have a new woman in his life, however, his sister can’t wait for her brother to move on. Pedro returned to the Dominican Republic after his split from Chantel and Nicole made him promise that he would go on a date with one of her beauty pageant friends.

“The bitch is gone,” she cheered. Meanwhile, Pedro’s mom, Lidia Morel, wanted him to stay single and try out “different flavors.”

“His first sexual relationship was Chantel. She ate a brand new cookie,” the matriarch explained during the November 13 episode. “So as a result of this, I can understand that Pedro must have more experience, meet girls and kiss many.”
