Michael Jessen and Juliana Custodio have tied the knot.
The stars of the “90 Day Fiancé” announced the news of their breakup via Instagram on Tuesday, which also marked their second wedding anniversary.
“Today is only our second wedding anniversary and unfortunately our last”, writes Jessen with a photo of their wedding day. “Our marriage is a COVID-19 victim that will not appear in any statistics. Fortunately, you will soon come out healthier and stronger than ever. Some of us will probably stay in intensive care for quite some time.”
Jessen – who did share some nice things about his former partner – then blamed the coronavirus pandemic for the fact that they were both ‘exhausted’.
“I didn’t have the strength of mind and determination to be the husband you wanted me to be,” he said. “All this time I didn’t realize you were there for me.”

Hours later, Custodio confirmed the breakup at her own expense and shared her side of what caused the two to go their separate ways.
“You pointed to COVID-19 as one of the reasons we’re not together anymore, but we all know there are more than that,” she said. “Like you said, we’ve been through a lot together. The COVID was a tough time, but the hardest thing for me was to imagine you as someone who would be by my side, and unfortunately you showed something completely different.”
Custodio noted that she knew she “had to” leave when she no longer recognized herself.
“I wasn’t part of the family anymore, I felt like a maid. It was so toxic that I wasn’t living the life I wanted to live,” she claimed. “I love myself more, to the point of recognizing that I’m important and that I want to be happy.”
