Viewers of ’90 Day Fiancé’ have mixed feelings about Sarah’s involvement with Michael and Juliana. She has received some backlash from viewers, as they seem to think she’s too involved in their relationship. Sarah responded to the critics through an Instagram comment:

“I wish these haters would tell me what is wrong with this. My children have four amazing adults caring for and watching out for them. We live close to each other but we respect each others privacy and boundaries. I couldn’t ask for a better situation. Would it be better if Michael and I resented each other and had strife between us? Please tell me a better situation than what we have. I’d like to know your situation or formula for a blended family.”

90 Day Fiancé Prenup Controversy

On the most recent episode of 90 Day Fiancé, viewers watched as Sarah mentioned the topic of prenuptial agreements to Michael and Juliana. This led to some serious drama, as Michael and Juliana actually went to seek further advice regarding prenuptial agreements. The lawyer asked Juliana some tough questions in an effort to open her eyes to the reality of what this agreement would mean, should they split. As scenes play out on the show, viewers begin to feel sympathy for Juliana, especially after she could no longer hold back tears of overwhelming discouragment.

Michael & Sarah Respond

Sarah promptly took to her Instagram during the show to let viewers know that the prenup scenes were all “staged”. Sarah stated, “I was confused about why they were telling me to ask about a prenup.. They told me he knew I was going to ask about a prenup.. It was all staged, all scripted, and Michael and I and Juliana were completely against that whole storyline..” A fan page created for Juliana “@fanpageforjulianacustodio” grabbed a recording of Sarah’s live and reposted. Check it out below:

After the episode aired, Michael also turned to Instagram and posted a screenshot of the episode with the caption, “This is the biggest bunch of manufactured bullsh**… Shame on you sharp Entertainment and TLC”.

Soon after, Michael went on Instagram live to further explain his side of the story. He hinted that TLC is fueling and focusing on the drama and not necessarily representing the situation correctly, but rather distorting the reality of who the Jessen’s really are. Obviously, this is a show and the drama is what promotes viewers and great ratings, however, Sarah and Michael seem to disagree with the manner in which their lives were broadcast to viewers.

During Michael’s moments on Instagram live, he responded to a comment which ’90 Day Fiance’ Paola Mayfield made during her Pillow Talk segment. While reflecting on Michael and Juliana’s prenuptial scenes, Paola said, “he only thinks of himself.” Michael responds to her comment by expressing that the show had distorted the reality of the situation and announced that he and Juliana are in the process of adopting Juliana’s niece and nephew from Brazil. Check out his response below:

“To hear words like that.. It’s like a knife in my heart. I give so much. We all give so much. We care a lot. And here’s a little bit of news.. Juliana and I today just initiated the process of adopting her niece and nephew from Brazil. They are 8 and 6 years old and they are in a dire situation, and the only way to get them any chance of a good life is to bring them to America. We’ve reached out to my lawyer, and we are bringing them over here.”

Michael Jessen’s Instagram Live

His point in mentioning the adoption is to prove to the viewers of the show that he isn’t selfish and greedy, but rather truly loves Juliana, as well as her family, and only hopes to provide them all with the best life possible. This is the first time Michael has addressed the adoption topic and we will definitely continue to keep you updated.

Be sure to continue watching Michael and Julianas story unfold on TLC 90 Day Fiance on Sundays 8/7c.
