90 Day Fiance‘s current season drags in alums Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi soon. But do they belong on the season given his K-1 status? Because a source says that Michael’s K-1 visa was denied. So, that means no trip to America. Here’s what the source said and what’s next for Michael and Angela on the TLC show.
Update: Our leak was confirmed. It’s true that Michael’s visa was denied. It showed on the TLC episode and Michael went live on Instagram to confirm.
’90 Day Fiance’ Added Angela Deem & Michael to Season at Last Minute
One inside source in production at the TLC show told us that Angela Deem and Nigerian fiance Michael Ilesanmi were late additions to this 90 Day Fiance season. We were told that Sharp Entertainment decided that the assembled cast for season 7 was lackluster.
And that’s why they reportedly added Michael and his American fiance Angela to the roster. However, it could be that their K-1 journey’s not at the same point as others on 90 Day Fiance season 7. Already, most of the couples are united in America with approved visas with two exceptions.
One is Mike the Washington farmer and Ukrainian Natalie. The other is Michael Ilesanmi and Georgia native Angela Deem. But if Sharp wanted them on the show, no doubt Michael and also Angela would take the dough, even if they’re not at the 90 Day Fiance stage like the other cast.
Source Says Michael Ilesanmi’s K-1 Visa Denied
Frauded By TLC chimed in on this 90 Day Fiance drama. According to them, the U.S. denied Michael Ilesanmi his K-1 visa after his interview. And they said that’s why Michael’s in tears on a recent promo. Also, they said they heard it from multiple sources.
However, then Frauded posted that they not been able to “verify this with 100% certainty yet”. It seems the rumor mill’s in overdrive when it comes to Angela Deem and fiance Michael Ilesanmi’s visa status. Some are even saying he’s in Georgia already, but there’s no indication of that.
Clearly, 90 Day Fiance‘s amping up the drama bringing Angela and Michael back this season. No matter his visa status, it’s an obvious ratings grab because she’s so polarizing. A faction of fans vowed to boycott the TLC show over TLC casting them. Here’s why 90 Day Fiance fans are upset.
Will 90 Day Fiance Ratings Rise or Drop When Angela Deem Hits the Screen?
Many viewers called for a ban after Angela Deem reportedly physically attacked other cast members at the most recent Before the 90 Days Tell All. And in her prior season, she lunged at Rachel Bear during the reunion show. This triggered boycott calls from watchers. But for every person that says they will stop watching, there are more that will keep watching to see Angela and Michael.

Michael’s visa DENIED. You heard it here first, y’all! #90dayfiance #90daytheotherway #theotherway #90dayfiancebeforethe90days #90daysbeforethe90days #beforethe90days #90dayfiancehappilyeverafter #90dayfiancepillowtalk #podcast #podcasts #90dayfiancepodcast #realitytvpodcast #trashtvpodcast #thefraudcast #fraudedbytlc #michaelandangela
However, there’s also a ton of 90 Day Fiance viewers looking forward to watching more of Angela Deem chain-smoking and trash-talking Michael Ilesanmi. So, it’ll be interesting to see whether the ratings for the show rise or fall once “the elder” and her Nigerian fiance pop up on Season 7 Episode 6.
As for Michael Ilesanmi and his K-1 visa status, we’ll keep digging for more information. Tune in tonight for TLC’s latest episode of their dumpster fire relationship show to see Angela Deem light it up with Michael Ilesanmi. Now, we know his visa was denied in mid-October (see screenshot from show above).
So, that confirms that Angela and Michael were added to the season late – most of the other couples were married in Summer 2019. The big question is whether she sticks to her “K1 or K-dunnn” mantra.
