’90 Day Fiancé’ Fan Points Out Sumit May Have Broken New Delhi Law
90 Day Fiancé couple Sumit and Jenny Slatten have had one of the most dramatic stories on the franchise. Sumit shocked not only Slatten but also fans and producers of the show when they discovered he was already married. Now, Sumit is dealing with an ongoing divorce process, and fans are wondering if he and Slatten are ever actually going to get married. Amidst all of this, one particularly savvy fan noticed that Sumit also managed to break a New Delhi ordinance.
Sumit is still dealing with his divorce
90 Day Fiancé star Sumit was already married when he started seeing Jenny Slatten. It wasn’t a happy marriage, and Sumit wanted out. He didn’t tell Slatten until halfway through their first season on the show together, and it’s been something of a trainwreck since then.
Now, the reality star is facing a $20,000 penalty from his in-laws because of his plan to divorce his wife. What’s more, they’re angling to earn another $500 a month in alimony from Sumit.
Slatten has also told 90 Day Fiancé producers that Sumit’s wife is making false claims about how he treated her during their marriage.
“Sumit’s wife is making false accusations and claims, she’s claiming that he was hurting her, treating her bad,” Slatten said.
“And I am worried about that because she was supposed to drop those charges, as they came to a mutual agreement on divorce, and she didn’t drop the charges. So I know he does have to go back to court and face those charges and speak to the judge.”
“Even though she filed a false statement, one of my lawyer friends said, ‘Don’t take it leniently,’ because the charges which they put against me is a very serious matter. It’s not gonna withdraw easily,” Sumit added.
The ‘90 Day Fiancé’ star’s parents aren’t happy
While Sumit’s parents are upset with his current wife, and realize that they made a mistake in asking Sumit to marry her, they’re not particularly fond of his 90 Day Fiancé relationship with Jenny Slatten.
“The mistake was mine. I tried to make him marry. But separating from the bad marriage, and having a relation with a lady more than double of his age, it’s a different thing,” said his father.
“We didn’t know she’d turn out to be like this. We thought we’d adjust,” his mother added.
‘90 Day Fiancé’ fan says Sumit broke New Delhi law
Amidst all of this, Sumit could face additional legal trouble for setting off firecrackers in New Delhi, according to a 90 Day Fiancé fan on Reddit.
“Jenny recently posted a video on IG of Sumit launching firecrackers. Firecrackers are banned in Delhi – and with good reason. The air quality in Delhi is the worst in the world and has been linked to increased rates of asthma and other severe illnesses,” they explained.
“There is a ban on firecrackers in November (month of Diwali) and there were arrests made for those selling the crackers. If anyone is caught using, they can be arrested and jailed for up to 6 years, though police rarely crack down on users.”
Many users joked that perhaps Sumit was hoping for six years in jail to further delay his marriage to Slatten, which he seems to be dragging out.
