‘Married at First Sight’: Did Brandon Reid and Taylor Dunklin End Their Marriage Because of Cheating?

From the beginning of Lifetime’s Married at First Sight Season 10, fans weren’t too sure about Brandon Reid and Taylor Dunklin.

Many viewers thought Brandon, a sales manager, never seemed completely into Taylor, a research scientist. Others simply felt something seemed off between the pair.

As it turns out, MAFS fans hit the nail on the head. Brandon spent a full day of the new couple’s honeymoon in Panama giving Taylor the silent treatment and ignoring her in a huff after she woke him up by filming him while he snored. Although the couple eventually reconciled later in the day and settled into a bubble bath together, it looks like Taylor and Brandon never could make things work.

Shortly after Married at First Sight Season 10 premiered, People revealed that the pair had already filed for an annulment in the state of Maryland. Reality TV World recently obtained the annulment filing and revealed the reasons Brandon gave for the dissolution of his brief marriage to Taylor.

Brandon filed for an annulment on Jan. 2

Brandon and Taylor married in Aug. 2019. On Jan. 2, Brandon filed for an annulment from his wife of just a few months. The announcement shocked many Married at First Sight fans, who are used to waiting until the end of the season to find out a couple’s fate.

Lifetime quietly confirmed the news in a statement to People: “As with any union, some end up happily ever after, and others don’t. Continue to watch MAFS to see what happens with Taylor and Brandon.”

They aren’t the only couple whose marriage won’t work out this season. Meka Jones and Michael Watson, another MAFS Season 10 couple, also filed for an annulment later in Jan. 2020.

The ‘Married at First Sight’ star cited Taylor’s alleged interest in fame as one reason

Reality TV World exclusively obtained a copy of Brandon’s annulment complaint, which requested the court to allow for an “absolute divorce” if the marriage could not be annulled.

In the filing, Brandon claimed to want an annulment of his marriage “because of the fraud that was perpetuated on [Brandon] by [Taylor] and potentially the producers of the show.”

The alleged fraud, according to the Married at First Sight star, involved Taylor’s desire to “gain notoriety and attention” through her reality TV appearance rather than to enter into a legitimate marriage. Brandon’s complaint alleged that Taylor’s desire for social media fame became “clear” after they were married and spent off-camera time alone.

Additionally, Brandon claimed that Taylor had previously tried to appear on multiple other reality TV shows, which made him doubt the authenticity of their relationship.

The annulment documents also alleged that Taylor cheated on Brandon

Brandon’s other bombshell claim? Taylor allegedly cheated. According to the complaint, the MAFS star reported that Taylor “committed adultery during her marriage” to him and used online dating apps throughout their relationship.

Taylor hasn’t yet responded to Brandon’s claims, and the annulment hasn’t yet been granted, so nothing is clear as of yet. However, it does look like the MAFS couple struggles with jealousy on Season 10. In a clip from an upcoming Married at First Sight episode, Brandon exploded at Taylor, seeming to accuse her of being out with another guy.
