'The Family Chantel': Pedro and Chantel Caught in a Lie – Storyline Fake?

The Family Chantel stars Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett are in hot water over an old photo that exposed their supposed "lies." In the latest season of their hit spinoff, Pedro met his half-brothers for the first time. However, that might not be the truth after all. Here's why.

The Family Chantel: Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett Accused of Duping Fans

Pedro Jimeno and his wife, Chantel Everett, are being accused of duping their viewers. The Family Chantel cast members allegedly faked at least a part of their current storyline for added tension and drama. In the latest season of the show, Pedro had an emotional first meeting with his half-brothers. After an intense confrontation with his mom, Lidia, and sister, Nicole, he finally had the chance to get some answers straight from his half-siblings. Many were touched when Pedro Jimeno finally came face-to-face with his half-brothers, supposedly for the very first time on The Family Chantel. It became even more emotional when the three brothers seemed to welcome each other with open arms.

Pedro and Chantel Knew Half-Brothers All Along?

However, an old photo that resurfaced online seemingly contradicts Pedro Jimeno's claims that he hasn't met his brothers until recently. The Family Chantel star was adamant that it was the first time for the three of them to see each other in the flesh, which many believed. But Pedro and the show's credibility is now being challenged over an old family photo. In the picture, a young Pedro can be seen hanging out with his half-siblings in 2014. Nicole Jimeno and Chantel Everett were also present at the gathering. The group was all smiles as they posed together for the camera. Pedro and his brothers appeared really close with each other, almost as if they've always been in each others' lives. This is a far cry from what viewers saw on The Family Chantel.

The Family Chantel: Did They Lie?

The throwback photo quickly divided fans' opinions about The Family Chantel. Many expressed disappointment to Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett for "duping" viewers. The couple, as well as the other cast members in the picture, face criticism for supposedly faking their storyline. Pedro, in particular, received a lot of hate from fans who sympathized with his situation. Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett have yet to comment on the issue. The Family Chantel fans are still awaiting their reaction to fraud accusations against them, but it's likely not happening anytime soon given their NDA with the show.
