’90 Day Fiancé’: Did Mike Really Insult Natalie’s Body?

Mike and Natalie fell head over heels quickly when they met through mutual friends. But now, the Season 7 90 Day Fiancé couple seems to be wrestling with multiple obstacles to the perfect marriage they dreamed of.

Natalie Mordovtseva, 35, from Kyiv, Ukraine, and Michael Youngquist, 34, from the small town of Sequim, Washington, discovered their major religious, personal, and cultural differences early on in their relationship. But it was only when Mike and Natalie began to discuss the possibility of children together that those differences became a bigger problem than either of them could have ever imagined. 

On the Dec. 22 90 Day Fiancé episode, “Judgement Day,” Natalie broke down over Mike’s atheist views, saying she didn’t want to confuse any children she might have with her fiance in the future. Fans noticed just how at odds the couple seemed to be in their thinking.

Recently, Natalie took to Instagram to imply that those differences went beyond religion. In fact, Natalie suggested Mike was disrespectful to her behind the scenes, even going so far as to insult her looks and body.

Natalie and Mike both began posting on social media recently

Mike and Natalie both started Instagram accounts in Dec. 2019. After a few posts, the 90 Day Fiancé stars began to share photos of each other. Mike shared a cute video of his fiancee Natalie jumping into his arms, while Natalie shared a smiling snapshot of the pair on a park bench. 

But despite the couple’s smiling selfie, they don’t seem to be too happy together at the moment. At first, Mike wrote a romantic comment under Natalie’s post, gushing, “Look at my perfect little lady. Perfect picture of us to show [our] love for one another.” But Natalie didn’t take the compliment very happily, it seems.

Natalie claimed Mike insulted her looks

Natalie pushed back against her 90 Day Fiancé man’s praise, suggesting that Mike’s compliments were all for show. 

Ace Showbiz reported that Natalie responded to Mike’s compliment, “Why don’t you tell people what you say to me behind the stage? That I’m not your taste, how you say it? ‘Not a Ferrari.’ How your jokes about my body and my health put me down… Is this what man who loves do?” 

The 90 Day Fiancé star even doubled down in a later post, screenshotting the exchange and adding the caption, “Reality is slightly different.”

’90 Day Fiancé’ fans flocked to the post to offer their opinions

90 Day Fiancé fans were shocked by the exchange between Mike and Natalie, but many of them didn’t have much sympathy for the Ukrainian cast member. Some viewers believed Natalie was simply exaggerating or stirring up drama, while others believed the couple’s union was toxic and hoped they would break things up and move on. 

Some thought Natalie was trying to gather sympathy and attention from fans rather than be fair to her husband-to-be. “I wonder what you say to him ‘behind the stage?’” one viewer wrote on Natalie’s Instagram post. “Always two sides to every story. You’re lucky he puts up with your unrealistic and juvenile behaviour. The fact you posted this just proves you’re an attention seeker. Very unclassy.”
