’90 Day Fiance’: Corey Rathgeber Defends Evelin Again – Is He Being Played?

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way cast member Corey Rathgeber is sticking up for Evelin Villegas against her critics. Early on, some TLC watchers felt sorry for Corey and thought Evelin used and took advantage of him. But, based on his latest responses, it seems fan sympathy is quickly running out. What did he have to say?

90 Day Fiance Update: Corey Rathgeber Defends Evelin Villegas

Many 90 Day Fiance watchers dislike Evelin Villegas on the TLC spinoff and share this feedback on social media. She frequently criticizes her man and appears to put Corey Rathgeber down a lot. When he was worried about mosquitoes at her grandmother’s place, she said his bad energy would be enough to repel them. This is just one example of comments on The Other Way that have fans dissing her online.

90 Day Fiance‘s Corey Rathgeber took to Instagram to defend Evelin Villegas. He said Evelin receiving all this hate as she does is “wrong”. According to him, she is “loving” and “caring”. Some 90 Day Fiance fans note that if she does have these qualities, the cameras don’t seem to capture them. Is Evelin Villegas the victim of selective TLC editing? Or, is Corey Rathgeber blinded by his love for her?

90 Day Fiance News: Corey Rathgeber Rails Against Negative Backlash on GF

But Corey didn’t stop there. He went in further on Evelin Villegas’ critics. In another IG update, he said it’s “sad” Evelin Villegas has to deal with as much negativity as she does. He claims she is different in person and hopes people can meet her and see this for themselves. It appears Corey Rathgeber knows something many 90 Day Fiance followers don’t when it comes to his Ecuadorian girl.

In addition, Corey Rathgeber went in further on all the negativity. He said he’d block users that post negative comments. Corey even addressed her getting together with an old boyfriend on a recent episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. He said they were on a break, so she didn’t technically cheat. But Corey defending Evelin Villegas is exactly the behavior that makes TLC watchers think she is taking advantage. But, at least from Corey’s side of things, it seems she can do no wrong.

Evelin is beautiful in every aspect! Shes the most loving, caring and wonderful person! I have never loved someone more. I hope one day people do meet her in person so you can see exactly what I mean. Shes the most awesome individual. It's sad shes has to deal with all of this negativity. It's wearing us both down and hurting both of us very much. People please understand she is a person too. Don't be so hard on her. I do want to address the episode. We were on a break during the argument. She did not cheat on me. I felt that way at the time, but Evelin never did anything wrong. It was my fault for bringing up the past. It should have not been brought up on national TV. We have moved long past that. It happened more than 2 years ago. I made the huge mistake. I broke a promise to her and made her look terrible. I'm so sorry @evelin_ecuador I will always love and care for you forever, no matter what happens in our lives. Also, if you post any negative comments from here on out you will be blocked. Please respect or don't say anything at all. You have been warned thanks. #ecuador #coreyandevelin #tv #show #drama #tlc #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #relationship #love #beach #sun #summer #ocean #engabao

Is Love Blinding The TLC Star?

Despite what Corey Rathgeber says, many watchers believe Evelin Villegas is playing him. In addition to Evelin allegedly hooking up with her ex while the couple was on a break, Corey’s close friend Raul revealed he and Evelin had a “fling” a few years ago.

For better or worse, it seems Corey Rathgeber is sticking by Evelin Villegas and insists these events and rocky times were from two years ago. So, it’ll be interesting to see if these two go the distance. But, at least for now, most watchers don’t seem to buy it. Be sure to tune in to new episodes of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Monday nights exclusively on TLC.
