Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi are among the most controversial couples ever featured in the 90 Day Fiancé universe. Fans first met the couple on 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days as Angela flew to Nigeria to meet with Michael for the first time. The couple hit it off immediately and decided to get engaged. The pair later featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? for several seasons — where they solidified their romance by getting married in Nigeria after Michael’s K1 visa application got rejected.
However, the couple has experienced trouble in their marriage, which they don’t show any genuine desire to fix. Angela has always accused Michael of cheating and talking to other women behind her back. However, she is also guilty of the same and has become a standout villain in the franchise over her poor treatment of Michael. The couple became quite infamous during Happily Ever After season 7 as their problems threatened to derail their relationship.
During the Tell All, fans learned that Michael had flirted with another woman online. However, Angela also got caught in curious behavior with her online friend Billy. Later that season, things got even messier when Angela showed up in Nigeria at Michael’s house unannounced in the middle of the night and threw a significant feat. As a result, the couple understandably decided to go their separate ways, and reports confirmed their split in January. However, they have since shockingly crawled back to each other. Nonetheless, fans aren’t excited about seeing them together again.
90 Day Fiancé Fans Feel Angela and Michael Deserve Each Other
Fans celebrated the news of Michael and Angela’s split earlier in the year. Anyone who has followed the duo’s relationship from the beginning will understand the level of animosity between fans and Angela. Throughout her relationship with Michael, Angela has been verbally, emotionally, and even physically abusive towards Michael, including. As Angela’s rain of terror continued, it only felt natural for fans to feel some kind of pity for Michael. Many of them thought he deserved better, and so they were happy when reports emerged they were getting a divorce.
However, the duo looked to have settled their differences and are now working towards getting back together. Still, due to their rumored reconciliation, fans have now washed their hands off the couple’s relationship. On Reddit, a lover, u/Trick-Medicine-5647, started a thread with a short clip of the two reunited in Nigeria. The OP captioned the video, writing, “Michael and Angela are back together in Nigeria.“
Many users took to the comments section to express their disappointment in Michael. They feel he is the architect of his problems and add that the two deserve each other. One fan, u/nrappaportrn, wrote,
“They deserve each other.”
Another fan u/Morgalisa, added,
“Anything that happens to Michael from here on is all on him. Not an ounce of sympathy from me. Nah.”
One user, u/DropExciting6408, concluded,
“If that’s the best he thinks he can do, then he deserves to be treated like dirt again.“
90 Day Fiancé Fans Feel Angela and Michael Want To Stay on TV
Given the mistreatment and disrespect Michael has suffered throughout his relationship with Angela, it is hard to imagine why he would continue to put up with such toxicity when he has the option to walk away. This has been a big puzzle for many of the show’s viewers, who are concerned about his mental health. Following their recent reconciliation, fans now believe the two had to reunite to remain on television. If they divorced, the producers would no longer have any storyline to work with for them, and that would inevitably mean getting kicked off the show. While commenting on the thread, one Redditor, u/blueskies1800, said,
“They are plotting how to stay on TV.”
Relationships are one of the most challenging things to get a handle on, especially when one is looking at things from the outside. However, there are reasons they have always chosen to stick together, which is commendable. However, there are also consequences for every action — whether good or bad. Hopefully, the couple will get it right this time around.
