90 Day Fiancé Season 7 stars Mursel Mistanoglu and Anna Campisi began to struggle as soon as Mursel arrived in Nebraska from his native country of Turkey.
In addition to their language barrier, which requires them to use a translation app for even basic communication, Anna and Mursel clashed over Anna’s three sons. Because he knew his parents would disapprove, Mursel refused to tell his family back in Turkey that Anna’s boys even existed.
When Mursel finally came clean to his family, things didn’t go well, to say the least. And in a newly-released sneak peek of the Jan. 12 90 Day Fiancé episode, Mursel and Anna dealt with the heartbreaking aftermath.
Mursel finally came clean to his parents about Anna’s three sons
After Anna’s bachelorette party guests urged her to give Mursel an ultimatum, that’s exactly what the 90 Day Fiancé star did. The 38-year-old mother of three insisted her fiance give his family a call and come clean about her family situation.
When Mursel reluctantly agreed, things went even worse than he thought they might. Not only did Mursel’s parents demand he return to Turkey, but they also told their son they’d never liked Anna in the first place. “I never wanted Anna,” Mursel’s mom told him during a video call.
While he was heartbroken, Mursel said he couldn’t betray his parents and sadly prepared to return to his home country.
The ‘90 Day Fiancé’ stars had a heart-to-heart before he returned to Turkey
In TLC’s new sneak peek of the Jan. 12 90 Day Fiancé episode, Mursel and Anna had what looked like their last conversation before he was slated to leave for Turkey. Mursel’s face was wet with tears as they sat together on Anna’s couch, discussing their breakup.
“I can’t believe you’re not choosing me,” Anna told her fiance.
“I want marriage, but my family very bad,” Mursel said in Turkish.
Switching to English, he tried to connect with her one last time, declaring: “I love you, Anna.” “No, you don’t,” Anna responded sadly.
Anna told 90 Day Fiancé producers that she was sick of her fiance’s indecisiveness and lack of courage when it came to his family. “I’m just angry over this whole situation,” she said. “I really thought he would’ve picked me over his family and he’s not doing that. He keeps telling me that he loves me and he’s sorry. But he can’t man up and prove it.”
Anna told Mursel he broke her heart
Mursel looked increasingly heartbroken as the conversation continued. He told his fiancee with their translation app, “You are so mad at me.” “Yes,” she responded straightforwardly.
But Mursel insisted Anna wasn’t the only one hurting. “I am suffering too much pain,” he told her.
“My heart is broken,” Anna admitted, before turning Mursel away when he tried to embrace her.
Mursel sat down for an interview with TLC producers, confessing that his breakup with Anna was nothing short of devastating. “Anna was awful when I saw her,” the 90 Day Fiancé star said. “She was very sad. She has no hope. I mean, I was devastated. I was very sorry.”
Back on the couch, Mursel confessed, “I will love you for a lifetime.”
But Anna had had enough. “No. Love finish. You lost me,” she replied as Mursel sobbed, “I know.”
Finally, she said it was time for him to leave. “I just want you to go. Mursel, don’t contact me again, okay?” Anna demanded. Her fiance was silent as he folded into the couch, still weeping.
