’90 Day Fiancé’: Are Angela and Michael still together?

Among all the wild and unpredictable relationships in 90 Day Fiancé history, Angela Deem and her Nigerian husband, Michael Ilesanmi, have one of the most explosive and entertaining. Their journey has seen more ups and downs than an aerobics class, with a long-distance romance lasting over two years thanks to logistical and immigration issues, and even a temporary breakup.

In a dramatic twist this February, Michael went missing while the couple was featured on season eight of the spin-off 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, which had recently shown them starting a happy new chapter. So, what’s the real story behind their relationship? Let’s dive into Angela and Michael’s current status.


Angela and Michael’s Road to Happily Ever After? Season Eight

We first met Michael and Angela on season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in 2018, after Michael sent Angela a friend request online. They quickly became a staple in both the flagship 90 Day Fiancé series and the spin-off Happily Ever After?. The couple finally tied the knot in January 2020 in Nigeria, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Angela returned to the U.S. and started the lengthy visa application process for Michael.

The pandemic, financial issues, and significant immigration hurdles made Michael’s journey to America a long and complex one. Despite being continents apart, the couple continued their signature earth-shaking arguments, especially when accusations of infidelity arose.

In one particularly memorable argument, Angela flashed the camera—an incident that, let’s be honest, makes for great TV. Despite the drama, their love, or perhaps Michael’s determination to get to the U.S., kept them together. By December 2021, Angela was in Las Vegas celebrating her birthday and confirmed they were still together, just waiting on Michael’s visa.

However, by January 2022, break-up rumors surfaced. Angela changed her Instagram from a shared account back to her own, and Michael posted cryptic messages about individuality and change. The rumor mill went into overdrive when Michael was seen hanging out with 90 Day Fiancé co-star Usman “SojaBoy” Umar, much to Angela’s chagrin.

Are Angela and Michael Still Together?

Despite the turmoil, Angela and Michael returned for season 7 of Happily Ever After?, though Angela claimed she hadn’t seen Michael in over two years. She expressed frustration over Michael’s lack of communication and financial demands. She also introduced a new figure, Billy, a former stripper she had commissioned to paint something for Michael. Although Angela insisted Billy was just a crush, the situation hardly reflected a stable relationship.

In a dramatic twist on Oct. 2, 2022, Angela surprised Michael in Nigeria, leading to a screaming match that had to be broken up by friends and family. The chaos escalated in December 2022 when Angela discovered Michael chatting with another woman online.

Despite the explosive drama, things seemed to settle during their time on 90 Day: The Last Resort, where the couple attended virtual couples’ therapy. They even had a re-commitment ceremony, with Angela tearing up the divorce papers she brought.

Michael finally moved to the U.S. in December 2023, but the drama was far from over. In February 2024, Angela announced Michael was missing. After a brief panic, police found Michael, who claimed he was hiding from Angela out of fear for his life. Angela’s initial worry quickly turned to anger and she started sharing less-than-flattering articles about Michael, while Michael himself posted cryptic videos suggesting he’s enjoying his newfound single status.

As of now, Angela and Michael haven’t made any direct statements about their relationship, likely due to ongoing episodes of Happily Ever After? airing. However, their social media activity speaks volumes, hinting at a rocky, if not completely severed, relationship.

In the ever-dramatic world of 90 Day Fiancé, Angela and Michael’s saga continues to be intoxicatingly entertaining, keeping fans glued to their screens with each new twist and turn.
