TLC and Mike both have stayed silent despite some troubling past Instagram posts by the New Yorker in which he’s reportedly being racist and transphobic emerged. Few fans feel it’s unfair that Alina Kozhevnikova was scrubbed clean from all B90 episodes along with her ex-boyfriend Caleb Greenwood after old racist posts from her Facebook and Instagram had surfaced. Meanwhile, confirmation of Memphis and Hamza getting married also grabbed headlines in the week gone by. Sometime in 2021, Memphis changed her name to “Memphis Chardell-Arden Mokni.” However, Memphis has alluded to a split between her and Hamza plenty of times on IG since then.
Ben Gets Arrested For Probation Violation
Ben, 52, found himself behind bars after violating his probation from an alleged drunk-driving incident in 2020. According to TMZ, Ben was arrested for OWAI — operating while ability-impaired, and a suspended license in 2020. He was then sentenced to 18 months of probation. The former youth pastor Ben did not appear for his hearing in February after which the judge issued a bench warrant leading to Ben’s arrest on March 15. Ben was released after having spent more than 18 hours in jail later that evening.
Ximena’s New Boyfriend Josh Romeo Is Revealed
The cat was out of the bag when Ximena accidentally posted and deleted a TikTok video featuring a Canadian man Josh Romeo but later tried to claim she was hacked. However, Ximena also made several allegations against Mike which confirmed the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days couple’s breakup. Ximena claimed Mike was allegedly abusive towards her and that they both met when she worked as a webcam girl and not via Tinder. A blogger @mommysaysbadwordstoo shared several photos and videos of Ximena with Josh Romeo which show that she’s moved on from Mike. It appears Josh Romeo is in Colombia with Ximena and is also the person who gave her the ring which she’s been proudly flaunting in her recent IG updates after her 25th birthday.

Johnny Reveals He Agreed To Be In Open-Relationship
Another big spoiler about a different 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days pair, Johnny and Ella, was shared on social media in the past week. Johnny, who’s new to Instagram, confirmed he’s not met Ella yet. Johnny says he has no right to blame Ella for what she did because she was 28 when they met at the start of the pandemic and she’s wasted her best age on him. Johnny confessed he agreed to have an open relationship with Ella in his statement via Instagram, where he also added, “I told her if someone is better than me i will and must let her go.” Johnny defended Ella by claiming she’s very patient and nice to him, when most Chinese girls are apparently not nice to single dads, and that she was the one who tried to meet him in Taiwan and Dubai, but he acted like a coward which he thinks is a cruel thing.
