The Family Chantel stars Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno will be shown working on their relationship on the TLC spinoff’s second season, so what was the result?! Are Pedro and Chantel still together and married or did they split up?
[The Family Chantel Spoiler Warning: This report contains spoilers on the current status of Chantel and Pedro’s relationship and whether the 90 Day Fiance couple is still together or broken up].
Chantel and Pedro began starring on reality television with Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance on TLC.
Chantel met Pedro online over four years ago when she was looking to learn Spanish and a friend connected her with Pedro, who was also hoping to improve his English skills.
After getting to know each other over the phone and video chat, Chantel traveled to the Dominican Republic a few times and then she and Pedro got engaged.
Pedro then traveled to America on a K-1 visa at age 24 so he and Chantel could marry within 90 days, but Chantel — who was 25 years old at the time — told her family he was arriving on a student visa instead.
Once Chantel’s family learned Chantel would be getting married after a whirlwind romance overseas, they were suspicious Pedro was after Chantel’s money and/or a Green Card.
Chantel’s family also thought it was strange Pedro was frequently sending money home to his mother Lidia and sister Nicole in the Dominican Republic.
To ensure Pedro wasn’t keeping any secrets or living a double life, Chantel’s family hired a private investigator to research his background and also demanded the couple sign a prenuptial agreement in order to protect Chantel’s financial interests before their wedding.
Pedro hated that Chantel’s family didn’t trust him, but Pedro’s mother and sister weren’t fond of Chantel either and disapproved of their relationship.
Pedro and Chantel later appeared on Seasons 2, 3 and 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?.
Tension between the two families exploded during the third season of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, when Pedro got into a blowout fight with Chantel’s brother River at the dinner table and then Nicole accused Chantel’s family of attacking her in their home.
Neither side ever budged on offering an apology, so there was a standstill between families that resulted in more confrontations and disagreements down the road, as no one agreed upon who was to blame.
Problems between Chantel and Pedro also came to a head when Pedro visited his family in his native country, only to get caught dirty dancing with Coraima. Pedro’s mother and sister also blamed Chantel for taking Pedro away from them and being a selfish wife.
