’90 Day Fiancé’: Geoffrey Paschel Says He Was Never Fired by TLC

Geoffrey Paschel was one of the most controversial cast members on this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days and unlike his fellow castmates, it wasn’t because of anything that he did during the season. Fans of the show uncovered some things about Paschel’s criminal history that made them feel like he was unfit to be on the show. After his charges of kidnapping and domestic assault were made public, fans called for Paschel to get fired from the show. When he didn’t appear on the tell-all, viewers thought they had succeeded in taking Paschel down. But now, he is claiming he was never fired.

What are the charges against Paschel?

Last June, Paschel was involved in an altercation with his ex-girlfriend who he lived with at the time.

“He repeatedly bashed/slammed my head into the hardwood floors of my home,” the ex claimed in court documents obtained by USA Today. “He dragged me through the house by my hair and continued throwing my body into walls and furniture. I know this because of blood on my walls, furniture, etc.”

She went to the hospital following the event and was treated for a concussion. The police noted “a large raised bruise on [her] forehead and abrasions on her elbows and knees.”

After the incident, Paschel was charged with domestic assault, interference with emergency calls, vandalism, and aggravated kidnapping. 

Petition to get Geoffrey fired

While the season was still airing, people called for Paschel to be fired and created a petition to get it done.

“This petition is to remove him from the show and have him appear on no further shows due to current allegations and criminal charges made against him,” the petition reads. “We would also like to make advertisers aware of what they are supporting, and hope to see that your companies will not stand for promoting such atrocities as these.

“He has been accused of kidnapping, abuse, rape, child endangerment, dealing drugs, felony larceny, theft, and battery. He is barred from ever entering Canada.”

What does Geoffrey have to say about the charges?

Paschel has maintained his innocence throughout the season. He claims that the women’s allegations against him are baseless and part of a custody battle.

“I know for a fact that I never laid a hand on any of these people,” he said in an Instagram video. “The [first] allegations came from [my son] Cayvan’s mother, then [my] second wife jumped on board. And it was after that, after I’m leaving a relationship, the girlfriend jumped on. And so now you have these allegations trying to only corroborate each other’s story. That’s all they’re trying to do is corroborate the story.”

Today was supposed to be my hearing date for the June 2019 allegations. Unfortunately, it has once again been delayed due to the pandemic. I have been very eager to go and reveal the truth surrounding the evidence in question. I have continually requested the earliest possible dates every time so that I expeditiously clear my name. I have been forced to hide under a rock and told that the “hate will just go away” if I ignored it. That is not me, and I can’t take constant accusations from people, whilst I lie in silence, any longer. . These claims are the main reason I’ve been lambasted with such vitriol. I can assure you, if any of these fables were true, I would bow out and accept responsibility. Not all is as it seems. I have been held back from defending myself, but the time has come that I stand up to the incredulous and contrived conditions that keep compounding due to the viral spread of sensationalized opinions and lazy, one sided, internet reporting—meant only for clickbait. There are unscrupulous intentions behind this endeavor to defame me and it is due to the custody situations I am currently in. Consequently, the only way for the actual truth to be known, is for me to speak out. . I am 100% categorically innocent and I cannot wait to share my trove of evidence…soon. From the onset of these allegations, there has always been an agenda with the sole purpose of sabotaging my custody battleS. There was never any sort of accusations until court proceedings were initiated. Furthermore, at no point was there any violence exhibited toward that woman or any other woman—ever. These are merely combined battles to win their selfish war. However, I will continue to fight for what is best for my children. Co-parenting seems to be a lost art when anger, resentment and jealousy are involved. My goal is to look beyond said fog and focus on what is in THEIR best interests. They are the ones that matter. . When something is wrong, no matter what it is, I will be the first defender. I should not have to change this tactic when I am involved. . Stay tuned for THE truth, I am preparing it now for my own tell-all.

Was Geoffrey fired?

Paschel and his girlfriend Varya Malina were notably absent from the tell-all special. Many people thought this meant that TLC had listened to fans and let Paschel go.

But in a recent interview with The Domenick Nati Show when Paschel was asked if TLC wanted him back and regretted firing him, he claimed he was never fired.

“I’ve never been let go,” he said. “I’m not fired from the show. I’m not fired from TLC. I’m not fired period.”
