’90 Day Fiancé’: Chantel Everett Says Marriage to Pedro Jimeno is a ‘Scam’

90 Day Fiancé fans know that Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno have a tumultuous and dramatic relationship. The couple has had more than their fair share of ups and downs, especially now that they have their own spinoff show, The Family Chantel

Things looked hairy for the couple from the get-go, with Chantel Everett’s family claiming that Pedro Jimeno and his family were simply using Chantel to “harvest the American dollar.” Now, Chantel is saying that the claim might be true after all — a major blow after she recently caught Pedro dancing with another woman. 

Family trouble 

Things were rocky from the get-go for this 90 Day Fiancé couple. Chantel Everett’s family was immediately suspicious of Pedro, claiming the Dominican native’s family simply wanted money. The Everett family had a litany of complaints and grievances about the Jimeno family throughout their time on 90 Day Fiancé

According to the Everett family, the fact that Pedro’s mother and sister live in a large, nice apartment is a red flag — especially since this apartment is larger than his apartment with Chantel. It seems the Jimeno family has such nice digs because Pedro sends them money and gifts. This seems like something natural for a son to do for his mother, but the Everett family is against it. 

Add to that the fact that Pedro and his sister have had physical altercations with Chantel’s family, and things get nastier. Chantel’s parents also suspect Pedro is simply using her for a green card, and that Pedro’s mother pushed him to meet an American girl specifically so he could head to the U.S. for economic reasons. 

Meanwhile, the Jimeno family hasn’t been particularly fond of the Everett family either — and nothing spells out marriage trouble like two families that resent one another. 

Caught in the act

Pedro and Chantel’s relationship hit a new low recently when Chantel confronted Pedro during a 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? tell-all episode. Chantel approached Pedro with the claim that he visited the Dominican Republic recently in order to sleep with other women. She said, “You went over there to hang out with hoes. It just shows that he really doesn’t respect me or our relationship at all.” 

Pedro responded that their marriage would “never survive,” adding, “I don’t want to do nothing because I don’t know if I was to stay in this marriage.” That doesn’t sound promising. 

In the past, Pedro also danced with another woman at a club, which was caught on camera. At the time, he said, “Chantel going to kill me. I’m thinking I messed up tonight, but I had such a great time.”

The marriage is a ‘scam’

Now, Chantel Everett is claiming that she’s realized her marriage to Pedro Jimeno is nothing other than a ‘scam.’ During a recent episode of The Family Chantel, Chantel told both her parents and her siblings, “I basically found out our whole marriage is a scam.”

It seems Chantel’s friend, Obed, claims Pedro married Chantel so that he could send money home to his family. This pushed Chantel over the edge, and her mother added, “When it seems that [there] is an intentional plot to use another person, it’s almost borderline body trafficking, is it?”

Chantel’s family then rushed over to confront Pedro, who ran away in someone’s car without a driver’s license. It sounds like things are going to get worse before they get better.
