90 Day Fiancé stars Sumit and Jenny Slatten are about to go through some serious drama. Sumit dropped a huge bomb on the 90 Day Fiancé audience this week when he told the camera he’d been keeping a secret from Jenny — he’s been married this whole time.
For some fans, this isn’t a surprise. There’s been speculation about Sumit’s marital status ever since he mentioned having a secret. Now, Sumit’s recent behavior makes more sense to fans. And they’re not happy with Sumit.
This isn’t Sumit’s first lie
Jenny Slatten first started communicating with Sumit using Facebook. However, back then, the 90 Day Fiancé star didn’t go by Sumit. At the time, Sumit was catfishing Slatten, going by Michael Jones, and claiming to be a male model.
Over time, the two grew attached to one another and began to develop serious feelings. Sumit realized that he had to come clean to Slatten because of how he felt. He admitted to the U.S.-based grandmother that he is actually an Indian man living with his parents in Delhi, working in a call center.
Sumit’s lying wasn’t enough to turn off Slatten, however, who said she’d truly fallen for Sumit. During a 90 Day Fiancé episode Slatten told the camera, “You know, what you do for love, sometimes is unbelievable. I think that everyone is entitled to happiness… I didn’t really think I would find love again, to tell you the truth.”
Slatten went on to add, “I was married for 15 years, Everything was fine as far as I knew, so when I found out he was leaving me for somebody else, that was a huge blow to my self-esteem. And after my divorce, life was scary.”
Sumit’s recent odd behavior
Jenny Slatten and fans alike were confused by Sumit’s odd behavior on recent episodes of 90 Day Fiancé. Sumit has continuously expressed concern about keeping his parents in the dark regarding Slatten.
Slatten and Sumit moved to a new apartment, but Sumit lied to his parents about it, saying he moved for work. Sumit’s family is not a fan of his new romance, and Sumit recently left Jenny alone in the new apartment, saying he had to spend a week at home to appease his parents and convince them nothing was amiss.
Since then, it’s become clear that Sumit was lying. He’s been keeping it secret from Jenny that he’s married, and fans have been speculating that Sumit has been going home in order to fulfill various marital expectations and obligations.
“He had to go back to his family’s house, so I’m just kind of by myself in the apartment now,” Slatten told the camera during a recent episode.
Fans attack Sumit on Instagram
Since Sumit has come clean to the camera about his marriage, fans have been ripping him apart on social media — this is now the second big lie he’s told Slatten.
One Instagram user urged Slatten to leave Sumit, “Jenny. I’m so shocked Sumit is married. He’s been lying to you. You deserve to be treated better. Put yourself first and leave Sumit.”
Another user wished the best for Jenny, writing, “Soooo disappointed in this man how he played you Jenny. Hope your heart heals.”
An outraged user wrote to Sumit, “You have been with her for 7 years and at the same time married with another. Unfaithful. And when you go home to your parents and left Jenny, I think you went to your wife and pleased her and then back to jenny. disgusting. I thought I finally watched a good couple who are really in love and that you was a good guy, but now… Hell no! How can you accept this, Jenny!? First catfish, hide you from parents then have a wife.”
One comment simply said, “Scam artist.”
