90 Day Fiance alum Jonathan Rivera is not keeping quiet amid abuse claims against him by Fernanda Flores.

90 Day Fiance Update: Jonathan Rivera Breaks Silence On Fernanda Flores’ Abuse Claims
Looks like the drama between Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores is still far from being over. The 90 Day Fiance ex-couple might cross paths again, this time, in court. The Chicago-based realtor is allegedly considering filing a lawsuit against his former spouse after she accused him of domestic violence.
Fernanda Flores will take part in an event where she’s expected to discuss her alleged abusive relationship with Jonathan Rivera. The Mexican babe even has a flier going around, describing herself as a “survivor of domestic violence”. But Jonathan isn’t having any of Fernanda’s jabs against him.
Are Abuse Allegations All For A Green Card?
In an interview with AfterBuzz TV, Jonathan Rivera maintained that he never laid a hand on Fernanda Flores. The 90 Day Fiance star claimed that there’s a bigger reason why his estranged wife is making claims that she was abused. Jonathan alleged that Fernanda made up the accusations for her to have a shot at getting a green card.
Jonathan Rivera says he was aware early on the relationship that Fernanda only wanted U.S. citizenship and modeling career. Apparently, Fernanda Flores learned that claims of abuse would allow her to stay in the United States for good. Jonathan added that Fernanda was told about the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and she’s now using it against him. Basically, the law says that a person claiming to be abused can’t be deported if the K-1 visa relationship fails.
Despite Fernanda’s claims, Jonathan insisted that he’s innocent, adding that there’s not a single proof to support her allegations.
