’90 Day Fiancé’: Yolanda Leak’s Fiancé Josh Seiter Says She Used Him to Gain Followers
It’s hard to keep up with Yolanda Leak and Josh Seiter. After getting catfished on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Leak began dating former Bachelorette contestant, Seiter. Things quickly became serious between the two and they got engaged. Now, the pair have called it quits and Seiter is claiming that Leak was just using him.
Josh and Yolanda’s relationship
Seiter and Leak met after filming for 90 Day Fiancé ended.
“I was on the strip and I saw her,” Seiter told The Sun. “There was this energy. I was very attracted to her. I saw her and I felt drawn to her, it was weird. I felt drawn to say something. I asked her how she was doing. She had this little smile on her face that was endearing. It made me feel comfortable because I’m typically shy.”
After a few days of talking, the two decided to become exclusive.
“I know a lot of people would be like, ‘How in one week?’ but when it’s right, it’s right,” he said. “When you’re this into someone it becomes irrelevant.
“It just happened organically,” he continued. “We just had the conversation and it was like, yes we’re together. We said it without saying it. It was obvious. I knew the day I met her that I wanted to be with her.”
The two then got engaged over Instagram when Seiter posted a picture of the engagement ring and Leak commented on it, accepting the proposal. This odd way of getting engaged made fans think that the relationship could have been a publicity stunt.
Shortly after getting engaged, the two broke up, but they later came back together.
“To everyone who has messaged me over the last couple weeks, yes me and Yolanda are together, and yes…we are officially engaged [blushing face emoji],” Seiter wrote on Instagram. “Sometimes a little time apart is all you need to realize that what you have is real. We just put the fiance in 90 days babbbbyyyyy! Bonnie and Clyde foreva [sic] [red heart emoji].”
Seiter even got a tattoo of her name to prove his commitment.
Josh Seiter says Yolanda Leak used him
Apparently, shortly after Seiter got the tattoo, things started going south. Seiter told In Touch that Leak began responding to him with one-word answers and ghosting him. When he confronted her, he says that she told him she was actually dating a man named Oscar Ghigliotty, who she refers to on social media as her BFF.
“The only thing that makes sense of all of that nonsense is if she was trying to get another season of [90 Day Fiancé],” Seiter told the outlet. “And she thought that attaching herself to someone with visibility and a social media [following], someone that had been on The Bachelorette and other shows, would get her that. And so 100 percent, I think the only reason she did any of this was also that she could get on the show and get a payday from it, which is ironic because that’s what people accuse me of doing.”
Throughout the relationship, some fans had accused Seiter of using Leak to get back in the spotlight as she was fresh off of her season of Before the 90 Days. But Seiter claims it was the other way around.
“I’ve always had a large social media following because I’ve been very vocal about mental health issues,” he said. “I didn’t have to fake a relationship with Yolanda Leak to get people to follow me. If anyone benefited from this, it was her. If anyone lost from this, it was me. I was in it for love. She was in it for a payday. People can think what they want. It speaks for itself.”
