’90 Day Fiancé’: Did Evelin Villegas and Corey Rathgeber Break Up?
90 Day Fiancé stars Corey Rathgeber and Evelin Villegas are really in a rocky spot. Things have never seemed easy for Rathgeber in the relationship — he was abandoned by Villegas at an Ecuadorian airport at the very start of their time together on the show.
Now, Rathgeber has discovered Villegas fooled around while he was away, and things are looking grim. The 90 Day Fiancé star blocked Villegas on Instagram, and fans are wondering if the couple has finally called it quits.
Left to fend for himself
Corey Rathgeber’s season with Evelin Villegas on 90 Day Fiancé started out pretty badly. Rathgeber flew to Ecuador to be with his love, but was met with a chilly reception. Most would expect a significant other to meet their boyfriend at the airport when arriving in a foreign country, but Villegas apparently felt differently.
Rathgeber arrived to no greeting whatsoever. In fact, Villegas simply told him to find his way to her on his own. She told Rathgeber, “You’re a big man, and you can come all the way here.”
Villegas also revealed to cameras that she has very high expectations of Rathgeber. “I am expecting him to learn how to speak Spanish, and he also needs to connect with my family better. If Corey doesn’t prove himself in the next 90 days, then it’s not going to work out,” she said.
She added, “In order for him to convince me to marry him, I want to see him doing things [on] his own when he is in Ecuador.”
Rathgeber revealed that Villegas seemed wishy-washy about their relationship, a fact that set him on edge. “It’s very scaring, especially if she’s seeming on the fence about things. It’s really not cool. I think a lot of people would break up with Evelin if put in my situation, but I love her,” he said.
Villegas caught cheating — fans are angry
Unfortunately for Corey Rathgeber, things have not improved. The 90 Day Fiancé star recently learned that Villegas hasn’t been entirely faithful. Soap Dirt received an exclusive leak from a TLC employee, revealing that Rathgeber was exposed to video footage of Villegas chatting with an ex-boyfriend about a night they spent together.
Soap Dirt has reported that TLC required Corey Rathgeber to sign a mental health waiver before exposing him to the footage. They also revealed that TLC had a therapist on hand to help Rathgeber afterward.
Since learning about Villegas’ actions, fans have rallied behind Rathgeber on Instagram. One user commented, “First, I am so sorry for the loss of your father. That is a part of your that is hard and never forgotten. Second, I am truly sorry for the breakup. It hurts. It is humiliating, it is sad. I see most of the couples as fake, but yours, I thought would work out. You go through a lot of frogs to get to the right princess, and you will get to yours. Just be smart, take your time and find a woman in the states that will be good to you. Your really a great guy and she is out there waiting. Good luck, stay mentally strong and never give up on love.”
Another added, “Happy belated Birthday!! It’s beautiful to see that you’re back home with love surrounding you. May God Bless you & your family always. Good luck Corey, you deserve good things.”
Have the two finally split?
Now, fans are wondering if this was enough for Rathgeber to fully break up with Villegas. In a September 19 Instagram post, the 90 Day Fiancé star wrote, “I know a lot of you have questions about me and Evelin, but that is personal and strictly between me and her. Thank you for understanding and respecting our relationship. And thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. I appreciate all the love and support.”
While Rathgeber’s post makes it unclear whether or not the couple has split up for good, Evelin Villegas’ Instagram told a somewhat different story. Villegas posted an image to her Instagram story that read, “After turning 27, it’s easier to get over a breakup than a hangover.”
