90 Day Fiance: Angry Michael Jessen Goes Off Over Bad TLC Edit
It seems unlikely that Juliana Custodio and husband Michael Jessen planned to reveal their adoption news this way. However, it came up in context while he was going off on the network. So, Michael decided to share the family update.
On 90 Day Fiance recently, Michael and Juliana’s segment was all about the prenuptial agreement. It came off looking like Michael took advantage with his greater wealth and left Juliana in tears. So, he posted a video rebuttal.
He called out TLC, Sharp (the production company) and Paola Mayfield, too. That last was over a 90 Day Fiance: Pillow Talk promo he saw. Michael Jessen called the scenes “manufactured bullsh*t”. And he vented that the show didn’t reflect reality. Then, he mentioned the adoption.

That’s when he shared the adoption tidbit. Because, 90 Day Fiance Michael Jessen said they’re adding two more kids to the family. Already, he and Juliana Custodio co-parent tweens Maxwell Jessen and CeCe Jessen with his ex-wife Sarah. And soon, they’ll welcome two more.
