Watch: Big Ed Joins "90 Day: The Single Life" Season 2
After weeks of speculation, the truth has been revealed.
On Tuesday, Oct. 12, 90 Day Fiancé stars Michael Jessen, 46, and Juliana Custodio, 23, confirmed that they were no longer together while marking a special milestone in their romance.
"Today is only our second wedding anniversary and, sadly, our last," Michael shared on Instagram. "Our marriage is a COVID-19 casualty that will not be showing up in any statistics. Thankfully, you are quickly emerging healthier and stronger than ever. Some of the rest of us will likely be staying in intensive care for quite some time."
Juliana also confirmed the breakup with her own post that shed light on why she wanted to leave.
"You pointed the COVID-19 as one of the reasons we are not longer together, but we all know that there are more than that," she wrote. "As well you pointed out, we went through a lot together, the COVID was a hard time, but the hardest part for me was to picture you as someone that would be by my side, and unfortunately you showed something completely different."
The fashion model continued, "I needed to leave because I wasn't recognizing who I am anymore. I left my life in Europe and career to live with you, because I loved you. But I love myself more, to the point to recognize I am important and I want to be happy."
Fans were first introduced to Michael and Juliana during season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé in 2019. After meeting at a yacht party in Croatia, the pair quickly fell in love, and the entrepreneur eventually proposed to the Brazilian beauty.
Juliana grew close to Michael's ex-wife, Sarah, and their two children, Max and CeCe. In fact, Sarah was given the honor of officiating Michael and Juliana's wedding.
In his breakup post, Michael expressed love for Juliana and said he will hold on to the "wonderful memories" they created.
