’90 Day Fiance’: Angela Deem’s DUI Arrest Buddy Owns Wedding Venue – TLC Frauding Again?

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days showed scenes of Angela Deem at a wedding venue in Hazlehurst, Georgia. But these are not all they seem. Is this another case of TLC frauding and Sharp Entertainment scripting their “reality”? Or did Angela pull the wool over the eyes of production? This was not some random spot and is a rather interesting choice for her wedding to Michael Ilesanmi.

Because, when Angela Deem was arrested for DUI the last time, she was driving the car belonging to the owner of the wedding venue. And there’s lots more 90 Day Fiance dirt – read on.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Does TLC Know About Angela Deem’s Deception?

On an episode of 90 Day Fiance, Angela Deem and daughter Skyla Deem went to look at a wedding venue called The Cotton Patch. They met DJ Doug Wooten at the venue to discuss her planned Africa-American themed event, but not all is as it seems. This was no random outing and the conversations may have been heavily scripted and staged. Here’s why.

90 Day Fiance: DJ Dougie Doug Wooten
DJ Dougie Doug Wooten – Not the wedding Venue Owner

DJ Doug is not the owner of the property Angela and Skyla were visiting. Instead, Angela Deem’s DUI drinking buddy owns The Cotton Patch Extreme, wedding venue visited on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. If you don’t know, he’s part of her recent DUI arrest. The owner of the property and wedding venue is a “close pal” of Angela’s. So close, in fact, police arrested them back-to-back on a wild night of drinking out together. Soap Dirt was first to break the story.

And since their mugshots were both made public, the guy’s recognizable. So, instead, they filmed using the DJ that works events at the venue – not the owner…

90 Day Fiance: Angela Deem

So, did TLC know they were filming at Angela Deem’s drinking buddy’s joint? Or did she set it up without them knowing. Last year, Soap Dirt exposed that her DUI was a double DUI with an alleged romantic interest. And, does 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ Michael Ilesanmi know she’s planning a wedding at a joint owned by someone she may be involved with?

Angela Deem’s Double DUI Pal Owns Wedding Venue – Shouldn’t That Give Her a Discount?

We were first to report on Angela Deem’s arrest for DUI – and also broke the story that it was a back-to-back DUI night with another man. One of our contacts in Hazlehurst alleges that Angela’s had a special “relationship” with this man she was arrested with. The night of her DUI, witnesses spotted the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cast member out with the man and our local contact says they are more than friends and have been involved for a while.

The night of the DUI, they were out at a local watering hole. Then, they stopped at a convenience store where an altercation over fried chicken (yes, fried chicken) led to her pal’s arrest for intoxication. Police reports indicate Angela Deem admitted she’d been drinking and told cops she wouldn’t drive his car. We spoke to a witness on scene at the local quick stop gas station. They said she hopped in the car as soon as police took her friend away.

From there, records show Angela bailed out her buddy. Them, she was popped for DUI driving him back home to Hazlehurst in his car. Those tidbits give you some context on what we saw on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. So, her DUI party friend owns the wedding venue where they filmed. Yet Angela Deem acted like the place was picked at random and she was getting new info. Since her close friend owns it, why wasn’t he on the show? And wouldn’t he offer a discount?

Soap Dirt went down to Hazlehurst Georgia to verify that The Cotton Patch was indeed the same venue shown on the show, and it was.

What Would Michael Ilesanmi Think About Marrying at Her DUI Buddy’s Place?

This begs the question if 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days‘ knows about the man she was arrested with – whether or not she’s involved with the guy – and that she plans to marry him at this other man’s place of business. It all seems so messy. No doubt, it’s easy to hide shenanigans in a long-distance relationship. But given all the raging Angela’s doing right now in Nigeria over Michael with other women, is she being hypocritical?

Angela didn’t want Michael to go out for his birthday and freaked at a pic of him where a woman was sitting at least 10 feet away. Yet, she was busted out on a double DUI night with another man… This messiness also begs the question of whether TLC’s knowingly letting Angela promote her DUI pal’s business on their show. You can check out our exclusive pics above of the venue.

Soap Dirt sent a reporter to Hazlehurst to dig into Angela Deem’s last DUI. Then, an anonymous source tipped us about Angela’s alleged involvement with the guy. So, will Sharp Entertainment film at her friend’s business when (or if) Angela Deem marries Michael Ilesanmi? And do they know about her very close ties to him – and are frauding – or did she keep that info to herself? Wait and see.
