How is Angela Deem from ’90 Day Fiancé’ doing now?

Date:

Angela Deem captured the viewers’ attention with her interracial relationship in the dating and marriage TV show “90 Day Fiancé.” People were fascinated by the distance she and Michael Ilesanmi had to conquer, especially since they met via social media, and would only see each other in person at the end of the season. Unexpectedly, the government prevented the scheduled first meeting and subsequent marriage, which although it forced the couple to change their plans, it added to the entertainment.

Additionally, while no relationship is perfect, their long-distance one seemed full of disagreements, mainly when bureaucracy threw a spanner in the works. Sadly, things escalated to cheating rumors and eventual confirmation, and a lot of on-screen conflict before a source confirmed that the two went their separate ways in early 2023. Let’s review what Angela Deem from “90 Day Fiancé” is doing now.

Angela Deem met Michael in 2018

Before we cover the current state, viewers must know that Angela Deem was a nursing assistant at a hospice in Hazlehurst, Georgia, USA. She has two daughters from a previous relationship, Scottie and Skyla.

Angela met Michael online in late 2017 or early 2018, when he messaged her on Facebook out of the blue. They quickly got into a long-term relationship before meeting for the first time during the second season of “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.”

From the get-go, their relationship was filled with trust issues, mainly because he had a lot of female friends on Facebook. Additionally, Michael’s confessed that he had cheated on her with a local woman during her debut season. Nonetheless, she forgave him, and they continued working on their connection.

Marrying Michael in 2020

Because Michael failed to obtain a spousal K-1 visa to visit and marry her in the US, Angela had to travel to Nigeria, where the couple tied the knot in January 2020. Angela returned to Georgia in Marchm and filed for a marriage visa – CR-1. She told Michael, ‘We wasted enough time with this K-1 and money. It’s time for you to come home. I know this [Nigeria] is your home, but our home.’ Although she expected the procedure to end within six to eight months, the COVID-19 pandemic slowed things down. Then, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) paused all interviews and applications.

While that was catastrophic for them, a fan saw Angela in passing in 2021 while the show was off the air. Angela confirmed that she and Michael were still together and awaiting their visa approval. Her husband later confirmed this in an Instagram update, noting that he’s excited to be with her soon.

Split rumors started in early 2022

Separation rumors began circulating in February 2022, when the pair was seen individually having fun on social media. Even worse, Michael also spent much time with Usman “Sojaboy” Umar, a fellow cast member and his friend. She never got along with him, and he felt Angela thought he was a bad influence on Michael. In June of that year, Angela responded to inquiries and stated, ‘Michael and I have been waiting on this spousal visa for two years, and we still haven’t got approval.’

By August, she started suspecting he was scamming her, revealing that he became ‘increasingly neglectful of her.’ Shortly afterwards, she teased a new relationship with Billy from Canada, and replied, ‘I gave nothing but loyalty to Michael for five years. At this point, I got to do what I got to do for me.’

Their relationship broke down in October 2022

Michael and Angela’s marriage went downhill during the seventh season of “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” Nearly three years into their marriage, in October 2022, Angela revealed that Michael reactivated his Instagram, which wouldn’t be a problem if he didn’t plan on becoming an influencer, and that his DMs weren’t chock full of women looking for attention, drama, or perhaps love.

This upset Angela, as she said, ‘His feed and comments are filled with women, and who knows what happens in his DMs. You wouldn’t trust your husband if he were flirting with other women on social media.’ Moreover, she admitted that he was calling her less frequently, and when he did, he only wanted to discuss his visa situation, or ask for money.

For her, the straw that broke the camel’s back was when he blocked her on Instagram to prevent her from seeing ‘the shady stuff he’s doing’ and contacting him. However, things ended with him having the means to cheat, not that he did, although viewers could sense Angela knew something.

Angela got a cheating confirmation in December 2022

Angela’s friend was both the saving grace and the cause of turmoil when they sent proof in December 2022 that Michael had been cheating on her with an unidentified 31-year-old woman via Instagram. Through tears during the Tell-All special, Angela explained that he started talking to a girl while she was in Nigeria with him. At one point, she realized Michael stayed in her bed upstairs when she was elsewhere and used that time to communicate with the other woman.

She then confronted him, telling him that ‘telling another woman you love her is cheating, even if you were never physical, and that he can’t expect her to believe he loves her.’ Michael defended himself, stating that he ’caused it all, but admitted his wrongs, and loves his wife, and nobody will come between them.’ The pair managed to smooth things over after he claimed she was ‘a random lady, a plaything he had because he was bored and lonely.’

At the time, the two talked lovingly, and she joyfully stated, ‘The spark and love were there. I felt like we were on our way, getting ready to bring him here and being husband and wife. I was really happy.’ As proof, she posted an Instagram video compilation of cute moments together on 2 December 2022, to the tunes of “Let’s Make Love” by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

Proof of cheating devastated her, but she didn’t divorce Michael

Michael’s voice notes to the woman shattered Angela emotionally, as they confirmed that he’d never stopped talking to her. She played the recording for the TV show cameras, and the audience first heard Michael’s frustration with the woman not picking up. Then, he said, ‘I have some money coming to your side. I will let you know, okay? I will call you, please. I love you, and I miss you,’ before concluding the voicemail with kissing sounds.

Angela wept because that’s how he talked to her, too, and remarked that ‘her heart was broken and that she didn’t deserve that.’ In the rest of the episode, she blames herself for his affair and states that deep down she knew he was cheating. However, although Angela felt hurt, she loved him and told the cameras she was unsure what to do, leaving fans to speculate.

She subdued her crush on Billy while Michael cheated

Unsurprisingly, fans had a wide array of opinions. Many took the expected route and suggested Angela leave Michael immediately, especially since this was his second public cheating scandal. Others found her disappointment hypocritical. After all, she previously admitted to talking to a man named Billy from Canada, and even planned to meet him after her Nigeria trip to see if they could develop a relationship.

Angela promptly clarified that Michael blindsided her into thinking they were in a good place. With that in mind, she confessed, ‘No matter how much we fight, I never cheated on Michael and didn’t want to, and hid nothing from Billy.’

As if she felt she downplayed the situation, Angela explained further by stating, ‘I had a little crush; I admitted that. It wasn’t a long crush, obviously, ’cause I love my husband. But this right here, Michael did all this behind my back.’

She wanted to file for divorce in early January, but not sign yet

Fans could see Angela getting fed up before things culminated during the fourth part of the Tell-All special, when she realized that his cheating was the final straw. She noted being very hurt and mentally exhausted, and recognized that ‘he never loved her but loved things she did for him.’ As a result, Angela told the cameras, ‘Right now, divorce is definitely on the table. I’m definitely going to file. That doesn’t mean I’m going to sign.’

In response, some social media fans, outraged by her fierce outbursts during the entire season, demanded that TLC fire her from the show. In response, Angela’s first post in 2023 was a video on which she greets fans and poses with them, and the caption read, ‘If you don’t like me, but you still watch me, you are still a fan beech.’

Angela and Michael officially divorced in late January 2023

Things were mostly quiet in the first part of January 2023, and fans doubted anything would happen because, while angry, Angela still displayed uncertainty about divorcing. Unfortunately, whether the couple hoped they could work things out or wanted to delay the inevitable, their marriage crumbled in the second half.

On the 31st of that month, a reputable insider told In Touch Weekly that Michael and Angela had parted ways after three years of marriage. They were vague, saying, ‘Angela and Michael are not together.’ Although she didn’t mention the legal side, Angela either signed the old divorce papers or filed for new ones. Moreover, she hasn’t mentioned Michael since early December 2022, except once to tell her followers someone is impersonating him with a fake account.

She maintained her weight loss in 2023

TLC emphasized Angela’s weight-loss journey from when she married Michael and returned to the US from Nigeria. In August 2020, she traveled to Los Angeles and underwent weight loss operations for breast reduction and liposuction, and had a gastric sleeve to reduce the size of her stomach. Her progress was one of the crucial storylines of the sixth season of “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?”

Although this was a positive change, fans criticized her for continuing with an unhealthy diet, and never kicking her smoking habit. However, she never paid too much heed to negativity, and revealed that she weighed 273lbs or nearly 124kg before the operation and had lost 110lbs or 50kgs by the end of 2022. Moreover, the posts in early 2023, especially on TikTok, confirmed her health and fitness journey continues, and that her confidence is at an all-time high. In contrast, her new appearance sometimes confuses some viewers.

She has unusual wardrobe mishaps

People on a weight loss journey usually periodically change their wardrobe to adjust to the shrinking body measurements. Angela did that for nearly two years, and apparently does in real life when hanging out with friends or posing for social media posts.

Yet, viewers are perplexed as to why she was dressed shabbily during the seventh season of the spin-off TV show, particularly during the Tell-All segments. At that time, she wore a rumpled emerald-green jumpsuit that was ill-fitted in the chest area. Furthermore, her hair was visibly uncombed, and although long enough for a natural ponytail hairstyle, sticking out of a high ponytail hair extension.

Fans have theorized about the reasons, starting with the show’s producers wanting her to appear chaotic due to her marriage turmoil and upcoming divorce. Others have started conspiracy theories that her relationship was fake from the beginning and that she no longer cared about keeping up appearances. That claim has some truth, since Angela appeared in TV shows such as “Trisha and Maury” but never gained prominence. Moreover, she became a social media influencer, and no longer needed TLC’s TV shows to retain her followers and sponsorships, and decided to prove it.

She is now drastically more active on social media

Angela Deem signed with Manage Clout in December 2022, and got two talent and business managers, Tonia Ryan and Dominique “Dominton.” That symbolized her potential desire to move on from TLC, and make up the alleged $15,000 per season from the show with a $2,500 bonus for appearing in Tell-All episodes.

Shortly afterwards, she became significantly more active on social media such as TikTok and Instagram, including on her second account, Angela Deem Collabs, under the handle @angelladeemcollabsSocial media analytics websites such as Influence.co for her Instagram and TikTok accounts suggest she could make an average of $850 per promotional post.

Moreover, she started fulfilling more orders on Cameo, a website on which fans can order a custom video from creators, hers being $125 per video and $3 per message. However, she doesn’t have Only Fans, and laughed that idea off in late February 2023.

Angela is promoting brands, singing, and hosting Meet & Greet events

Angela has been hired or volunteered to appear and sing in venues such as Cats Meow New Orleans karaoke, Hamburger Marys Weho, and Hogans Hangout, operated by wrestler Hulk Hogan. Angela also loves Miley Cyrus’ songs, and started 2023 with some of her hits. Moreover, she started holding Meet & Greet events, beginning with one at the Double Eye lounge in Cathedral City, California, on 24 March 2023.

Thanks to her manager, Angela started promoting services that year too, for instance, Tonia in Vegas, a website that finds significant discounts on flights, hotels, car rentals, and other activities, and fitness brands such as Flat Tummy Co. and Boombod.

Angela may undergo more operations

Angela’s Los Angeles plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Obeng, attracted some laughs and suspicion when Angela went for a breast reduction consultation. She asked if he was married, adding that he was ‘too handsome to be her doctor.’ Angela’s husband, Michael, disliked this initially, thinking the operation was unnecessary. He got angrier when the doctor dropped Angela off at a hotel after she began feeling sick at his birthday party that year, suspecting something had happened.

As of 2023, Angela still thinks he’s a knowledgeable, caring person, and returned to him on Christmas Day in 2022, then attended his Christmas party before revisiting him in February 2023. She also tagged Dr. Lawton Tang, a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon from Pasadena, California, but has yet to specify which operations she had, or plans to have to get.

Moreover, in October 2022, she traveled to New York City to inject Botox into her face at the Dolce Aesthetics clinic. She also debuted bandaids on her face, presumably from other injections or operations in late February 2023.

She remains a big animal lover

Angela was always open about her love for animals, especially dogs. She introduced a new dog, a Rottweiler named Tekashi, to her Instagram followers in October 2022 and collected $6,000 for a Siberian husky in critical condition in December 2022.

She is a boxing fan and trains recreationally

In late 2022 and early 2023, Angela shared several posts about attending boxing events supporting Victor “Vicious” Ortiz and training casually. Additionally, she praised boxing coach, Roger Romo, and went to boxing gyms to advertise Scraptime Promotions, a boxing, kickboxing, and MMA promotion business.
