’90 Day Fiance’: Could Babygirl Lisa Hamme’s Criminal Record Stop Usman Umar From Getting a Visa?
Babygirl Lisa Hamme has had a goal this entire season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. And that goal is to get married to her Nigerian beau Usman Umar. The two have had a lot of roadblocks on their path to marriage, most of them being Hamme’s attitude toward Umar, but we know from Hamme’s social media accounts that she and Umar do eventually get married.
The plan was for Umar to come over to America after the two tied the knot, but now that Hamme’s criminal past has come to light, fans are wondering if Hamme will even be able to sponsor Umar’s visa.
How did Babygirl Lisa and Usman Umar meet?
A lot of the 90 Day crew met their significant others through online dating sites. Umar and Hamme did meet online but their meeting was a bit more personal than most of the 90 Day Fiance cast.
“We met online,” Hamme said in an interview with Without a Crystal Ball. “We met through a mutual friend out of the UK. I knew her, she knew him, and he was looking for a female companion. And I just knew her reputation, I’m like, uh, I don’t know about this…but send him through my filtered messaging, and I’ll see what it’s about.”
There was a huge age gap between the two and cultural differences, but they still decided to give their relationship a chance.
“I was 49 and Usman was 29 when we first met,” Hamme said. “And when we first met, I’ll be honest with you…I honestly thought, oh, great, another yahoo boy out of Nigeria that’s going to harass me to no end. And I gave him the benefit of the doubt because I don’t like that stigma.”
Lisa and Usman’s struggles getting married
Though Umar proposed over the phone before Hamme got to Nigeria, the marriage was not set in stone. First, they had to get Umar’s mom to approve of the union. Initially, she did not give her blessing because of Hamme’s age, but after Umar explained the opportunities he would have in America, she agreed.
Then, when Umar and Hamme went to fill out all of the documents needed to get married, they were informed that they would need Hamme’s certificate of divorce. Since she didn’t know this before coming to Nigeria, Hamme didn’t bring the document and had to rush to find a way to get it before she had to return home.
On top of that, Hamme and Umar fought the entire time she was in Nigeria. The constant arguments caused Umar to reconsider the marriage multiple times.
Lisa Hamme’s trouble with the law
In 2015, Hamme was arrested for stalking. She was charged with harassment, specifically, a Title 18 Chapter 27 Section 2709 offense, which is when a person “strikes, shoves, kicks,” has “physical contact,” or threatens with the intent to “harass, annoy, or alarm” someone, according to Soap Dirt.
She pled guilty in court and was ordered to pay a fine.
Hamme has exhibited similar behavior since being on 90 Day Fiance. She has been accused of harassing a blogger, who has since reported Hamme to the police.
“I filed charges on Lisa Hamme for stalking, placing bounty on my head, and calling me all the time with threats. Reach out to me for full TRUE story with proof,” blogger Undercovr90Day tweeted.
Will Lisa Hamme be able to bring Usman Umar to the U.S.?
In order to bring someone over to the U.S. on a K-1 visa, you have to prove that you can sponsor them financially. You also have to provide records of your criminal history and information on any crimes you have committed, including domestic violence and stalking.
Due to Hamme’s past charges and current behavior, she may not be able to bring Umar to the United States.
