90 Day Fiance’s Evelin Villegas announced this week she broke up with Corey Rathgeber – but an inside source says she’s lying about the time frame. Our source told Soap Dirt exclusively that Corey and Evelin have been separated for at least six months.
So, it appears that the 90 Day Fiance romance was long over for Evelin and Corey before the release of their What Now TLC episode.
Although 90 Day Fiance fans didn’t think the relationship would last, it’s coming at a really awkward time for the two. Corey Rathgeber and Evelin Villegas are currently under quarantine together in Ecuador. Yet, our source says the photos are actually staged.
Keep scrolling for the full scoop on this married couple’s split and the strange timing of Evelin’s “reveal”.
90 Day Fiance: What Now? – Corey Rathgeber & Evelin Villegas Split Months Ago Despite Claims?
TLC released the newest episodes of their spinoff What Now that follows couples after the initial 90 days. Corey Rathgeber and wife Evelin Villegas returned to the show for a three-part episode detailing more of their journey as a 90 Day Fiance couple. But things kicked off to a rocky start.
Corey returned to Ecuador to be with Evelin, yet wasn’t sure if she was committed to him. Plus, Evelin’s family put doubts in her mind and she also confronted Raul about his behavior toward Corey. In the end, Corey and Raul found some common ground. The 90 Day Fiance couple decided to continue their relationship, seemingly happier than ever.
But a source close to the two TLC stars told Soap Dirt that this isn’t true. According to them, Corey and Evelin split up around six months ago. Not only that, but the two have been married for a long time.
Our insider in Ecuador sent us confirmation Evelin’s married – to Corey – on some official documents they leaked. Meanwhile, Evelin and her husband Corey keep insisting they’re just “engaged”.
Corey & Evelin Lock Down Photos Staged?
While many of our favorite 90 Day Fiance stars are currently under quarantine in the United States, others are overseas. Evelin Villegas was showing pics with Corey Rathgeber in Ecuador when that government started its coronavirus lockdown. So, 90 Day Fiance‘s Evelin Villegas along with Corey Rathgeber showed a pic of them on a shopping trip stocking up. But our source in Engebao says they’re just frauding fans.
Also, while Evelin and Corey may technically live in the same building, they don’t live together. The insider told SD it’s a three-story hostel. So, 90 Day Fiance alum Evelin Villegas lives on the top floor – where most of their balcony photos are staged. And, the landlord lives on the middle floor while Corey Rathegeber rents a cheap room on the bottom floor that’s divided up into many small rental rooms.
Above, they shared a picture of themselves with two completely filled shopping carts. So, according to our source, these photos are staged to keep fans interested – and TLC wanting to film with them for 90 Day Fiance spinoffs. Then, Evelin Villegas posted their break-up as if it was fresh. However, local sources in her village say this is not new – there’s no break-up – and their marriage hit the skids long ago.
90 Day Fiance: Evelin Villegas Announces Split For Attention?
Despite posing for happy pics together the past couple of months, our source says Evelin Villegas and her husband Corey Rathgeber called it quits long ago. But Evelin just announced a split and said, “Corey and I broke up”.
The declaration comes at a weird time. Is she bored in quarantine and looking for fan attention?
She’s Moved On With New Man
Plus, she says they’re “friends” and that they “always” will be. Corey and his now ex Evelin’s relationship has always been a little bit rocky and this isn’t the first time they’ve broken up.
Meanwhile, SD’s insider says Evelin Villegas moved on long ago with a man from Wales who lives in the village. And they said for now, Corey Rathgeber remains single. Watch to see what these two do next.
