’90 Day Fiance’: Did TLC Pay Avery’s Child Support So She Could Film Down Under?

90 Day Fiance is in the Tell All stage but we’ve got a scandalous update on Avery Warner from an inside source. We’re told TLC/Sharp Entertainment allegedly cleared up a legal matter so Avery could leave the US and film her segment of Before the 90 Days in Australia. Here’s what we heard and the facts we unearthed on her legal dilemma.

90 Day Fiance: Avery Warner’s Ex-Husband Issues

After we heard from a source close to production that Sharp Entertainment reportedly helped Avery Warner financially, we got busy digging. Already, it’s alleged that the scathing list of accusations about Avery (see below) came from her ex-husband. This new info ties back to some of the dirt listed on that list.

In 2009, Avery Warner’s husband filed to divorce her. The divorce finalized at the end of the year. From the information we have, the court awarded him custody and ordered 90 Day Fiance cast member Avery to begin child support payments. Then, in 2012, there was another court case.

Avery Warner’s ex filed with the court for permission to take his daughter and move out of state. It looks like he moved to Oregon with their child eventually. But first, Avery tried to block the move. However, her ex prevailed in court, not the 90 Day Fiance star. But there’s more.

90 Day Fiance: The Truths About Avery Warner


Contempt Charges – Did She Owe Back Child Support?

After the court ruled 90 Day Fiance’s Avery Warner must pay child support, there’s some drama over that. There was a court-ordered judgment against her for several thousand dollars a couple of years later. That could mean Avery missed payments – as we couldn’t find another explanation.

Then, in 2017, Avery’s ex filed a complaint with the court, and she was charged with contempt over unpaid child maintenance payments. That was long before her casting on 90 Day Fiance. We also found a tax warrant on Avery Warner for overpaid unemployment she failed to repay the state.

So, our inside source told us Avery Warner was barred from traveling out of the US to film 90 Day Fiance because of a court-ordered debt. So, was it the unemployment tax warrant – or her child support contempt? That’s tricky as the family court seals most documents. But our source leaked us the info.

90 Day Fiance: Ash Naeck - Avery Warner

Did Sharp Clean up Avery’s Debt Mess So She Could Film 90 Day Fiance?

In case you don’t know – New York-based Sharp Entertainment films and owns the show – and all spinoffs. TLC licenses and airs the show. So, it would be Sharp that hired Avery Warner, the film crew, and dealt with her reported legal issues.

Our leaker alleges that Sharp Entertainment paid her overdue child payments so she could film her 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days season with Ash Naeck. If they’d already hired crew, and sunk costs into her trip, clearing up this debt for Avery Warner would be cheaper than canceling the shoot.

We’re still digging for more info on this 90 Day Fiance legal mess. We’ll update when/if we have more to report. For now, our source insists that Sharp paid Avery Warner’s back child support (not the other debt we located). And that’s (allegedly) why she could exit the US to film for them.
