A popular 90 Day Fiance couple is embroiled in a heated divorce battle.
Chantel Everett accused Pedro Jimeno of domestic violence and fraud in new court filings.
Jimeno claimed days before the divorce, she transferred $257,000 to her sister’s bank account.
Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno, a popular couple from the fourth season of TLC’s 90 Day Fiance and spin-off The Family Chantel, filed for divorce after Everett accused Jimeno of domestic violence, according to court records.
On May 26, the couple filed divorce papers in a Georgia court, stating that they had been separated since April 27. The two have since made allegations against the other in multiple filings.
In documents filed May 27, Jimeno said Everett had transferred money from a joint bank account days before their split.
“On or about April 23, 2022, Defendant withdrew over $257,000.00 of the parties’ joint funds from the parties’ joint business account and transferred it to an account in the name of Defendants and her sister,” Jimeno’s attorneys said in May.
In court documents filed Thursday, Everett explained that her reasons for filing for divorce included adultery and “physical domestic violence as well as psychological pain.”
They were featured on the fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé, a show that follows foreign fiancés of American citizens through the length of a special 90-day visa as they decide whether or not to get married during that timeframe. Everett met Jimeno in his native Dominican Republic where they became engaged and he later moved to Atlanta to live with her.
During the shows, their families clashed and the couple fought regularly — and sometimes physically. After marrying in 2017, their split lasted four seasons, and their marital issues took center stage.
TLC did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
As of Oct. 28, 2021, the couple had obtained a mutual restraining order that limited their ability to make sole financial decisions about joint investments and bills, according to court documents. The temporary injunction is to apply until the final divorce.
