90 Day Fiancé: Rose Vega Says Big Ed Brown Had a Bizarre Smell When They First Met
The drama between Rose Vega and Big Ed Brown continues.
The exes had a fallout in the fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days that culminated in a huge fight at the reunion special. Ever since, they have continued to go back-and-forth online in regards to their relationship. Most recently, Vega appeared on 90 Day Fiancé: B90 Strikes Back! where she made a cringe-worthy claim about her former beau.
Inside Rose Vega and Big Ed Brown’s relationship
Vega and Brown met online and started dating a while before the show started. Brown later packed his things and traveled to the Philippines to meet Vega, waiting at the airport for what seemed like hours for her to show up. When she did, she gave Brown a big hug before explaining there had been a delay in traffic.
As they talked, Vega noticed that Brown had been dishonest about his height and had exaggerated it by more than a few inches. She was able to move past it but as they continued to spend time together, Vega started to take issue with many of Brown’s behaviors.
The fallout between Rose Vega and Big Ed Brown
Throughout their trip, Big Ed did many things that hurt Vega’s feelings — from demanding that she take a STD test to complaining about her personal hygiene. The final straw came when Brown, 54, failed to tell the 23-year-old he didn’t want more children, knowing she did.
Brown apologized for not being more forthcoming, but Vega wasn’t having it. She went off on him, left him, and then claimed he never loved her.
“He doesn’t really care about me,” she said in a since-deleted Instagram clip. “He just wants to be famous, that’s why he’s doing that. He did not even give me any gifts except bra and panties. All the words out of his mouth are lies. It’s not at all true. He did not care about me, especially my son. I always talk about you. You are always liar. You are a liar. It’s fake. All this is lies.”
Brown has since defended himself against the allegations, calling himself the “most authentic” cast member out of all of them, per The Hollywood Gossip.
Rose Vega talked more about Big Ed Brown in a new interview
Vega had been answering fan questions in an interview published on July 4 when she started talking about their meeting at the airport. She revealed that she was not actually stuck in traffic but had stopped at a local McDonald’s for some grub. And when she did finally make it to Brown, he smelled “sour,” according to Vega.
“Ed did not freshen up when we meet. He smelled sour and maybe it’s because of mayo in his hair,” she said, referencing Brown’s habit of using mayonnaise as a sort of conditioner.
Brown did not comment on her remarks, but he did claim that he had told Vega about his decision not to have more kids and that she had never brought it up again. Watch here:
