90 Day Fiance star Juliana Custodio finally broke her silence about her controversial split from Michael Jessen. The TLC star shared her side of the story, revealing more shocking details about the breakup.
90 Day Fiance: Juliana Custodio Refutes Michael Jessen's Claims About Their Split
It didn't take long for Juliana Custodio to respond to Michael Jessen's emotional post about their separation. The 90 Day Fiance celeb took to Instagram and shared her lengthy answer to her husband's claims.
Juliana confirmed that she and Michael had parted ways. The TLC celeb agreed that COVID-19 badly affected their marriage, and they could not hold on to it any longer.
But Juliana Custodio said there's more to it than just the pandemic. The 90 Day Fiance alum said Michael Jessen's attitude played a bigger role in it.
"The COVID-19 was a hard time, but the hardest part for me was to picture you as someone that would be by my side," Juliana wrote. "Unfortunately, you showed something completely different."
Juliana Says She Supports Michael Financially
Juliana Custodio also confirmed that their family was facing some financial difficulties. The 90 Day Fiance star claimed Michael Jessen was going through a hard time making money for the family.
Juliana added that she was the only one working, and her income as a supermodel helped Michael and his family a lot.
"As everyone, we went through a hard time financially, but it was not a problem for me to help you, the kids, ex-wife, and her husband because I was the only one working at the time," the 90 Day Fiance celeb revealed.
But the situation took a toll on Juliana Custodio. The Brazilian model said it became too much for her to handle. It also doesn't help that she's allegedly treated poorly by Michael Jessen.
"I wasn't part of the family anymore. I was feeling like a maid," she added. "It was toxic to a point I was not living the life I wanted to live."
Juliana Asks Michael to 'Let Go'
Juliana Custodio clarified that she left because she "wasn't recognizing who I am anymore." The 90 Day Fiance celeb also seemingly denied Michael Jessen's claims that she has found someone new.
"You say I have 'found someone new,' but the truth is, I found happiness within myself," Juliana pointed out. "I am happy with the new phase, and I ask you to let me go."
Juliana Custodio also told Michael Jessen to "stop making [her] feel guilty" about the split. The 90 Day Fiance star reiterated that they have talked about the situation "multiple times" in the past, but he supposedly "never seemed to listen or try to understand" her.
In the end, Juliana told Michael to just accept everything and move on. "Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be," she added. Be sure to check back with Showbiz Army as this story unfolds.
