A shocking throwback video from The Family Chantel shows that Pedro Jimeno was hell-bent on leaving Chantel Everett if she didn’t change her attitude.
Old footage from The Family Chantel has surfaced online in which Pedro Jimeno threatened to leave Chantel Everett after getting his Green Card. TLC viewers may know Pedro and Chantel from the famous 90 Day Fiancé spin-off show. In the past couple of seasons, fans have seen Pedro slowly fall out of love with Chantel as he begins to focus on his real estate career. In May 2022, the Dominican Republic star finally filed for divorce and split from his wife after six years of marriage.
90 Day Fiancé fans have been blaming Pedro for the divorce. Some viewers have even accused him of cheating on his wife with his co-workers. Others have called him out for plotting a relationship with Chantel to get American citizenship. Lately, fans have begun to think that Pedro was also after his wife’s money that she inherited from her mother on her 30th birthday. A 90 Day Fiancé viewer speculated about this theory on social media, and many others agreed with it.
Now, 90 Day Fiancé viewers have another theory after an old video from the show went viral online in which Pedro and Chantel are debating. The clip shows the 30-year-old reality star threatening his wife by saying (via _mimileaks), “When I have my Green Card in ten years, if you no fix your attitude with me… hey it gonna be over, I give you time.” After Pedro’s intimidating comment, Chantel hits back at him and tells him not to threaten her. Instead of being sorry, Pedro doubles down on his statement by saying, “I’m telling you.”
90 Day Fiancé fans are shocked but not surprised after watching this old clip. An Instagram user said (via 90daywdf**tch), “Her lawyer needs to filter through all their episodes and use whatever they can against him.” Another user commented, “That’s why he never wanted children, he only came here for green card.” A different 90 Day Fiancé viewer became the voice of reason and shared that the video doesn’t tell the whole story. The user wrote, “He was letting her know then he was having issues with her attitude,” adding that the video doesn’t show Pedro’s intentions were bad.
It is understandable why 90 Day Fiancé viewers want Chantel’s lawyer to take evidence from the show. However, this clip doesn’t show Pedro gaslighting his wife. Instead, it shows the reality star being honest with Chantel, which is essential to maintaining a healthy relationship. His comment may be crude, but his intention wasn’t inherently evil. He was simply trying to tell Chantel to change her rude attitude. Still, she was raging out at him instead of understanding his feelings. Overall, there are many theories about why the couple may have split. However, the biggest one seems to be their general incompatibility, which was visible from their debut on The Family Chantel.
