As reported by PEOPLE, the father-of-two broke the news while celebrating the former couple’s second wedding anniversary. Alongside a throwback picture from his wedding, the father-of-two laid his heart bare.
The business mogul confessed that his failed marriage could be seen as a “COVID-19 casualty.” He admitted that the pandemic left him unable to be the husband Custodio deserved as he was mentally exhausted.
Directed at his ex-wife, Jessen stated that he didn’t blame the young woman for choosing to leave. He also praised her for having qualities such as resilience and being optimistic.
In her post on Tuesday, Custodio shared a series of pictures on Instagram detailing her side of the story. The first was an image of the model posing with a radiant smile and a rainbow in the background.

Moving on to the next slide, the “90 Day Fiancé” star began her message by wishing Jessen a happy anniversary. Then she continued by refuting his claims that their marriage ended due to COVID-19.
Although she agreed that the pandemic made their situation difficult, the reality TV star explained that her ex-husband’s behavior led to their untimely separation.
Custodio confessed that Jessen’s financial situation made her the breadwinner of the family. A position she did not mind until the situation became “toxic” and she began to feel like a “maid.”
She concluded her post by advising those in unhappy relationships to be brave enough to leave and live the best version of their lives.
In response to his ex-wife, Jessen has edited his post and apologized for hurting Custodio. In his words:
“I am truly sorry to have hurt Juliana, and anyone else, in any way. It was not my intention and it was a mistake to post such a delicate and private matter publicly.”
Some Good times
In May 2020, The Blast reported that the “90 Day Fiancé” stars caused a stir on the internet after posting a nude throwback picture of themselves in a warm embrace.
The wine entrepreneur jokingly used the post to announce that he and the model were looking forward to the warm Summer weather.
He also admitted that he needed to hit the gym to look as good as in the image. The hot picture was reportedly taken during their dating stage.
While several fans were in awe of the couple’s confidence, others were not amused. However, Jessen clapped back at the trolls by calling them out on their tasteless comments.
