90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 days, Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi had just been made up for after a big fight in Nigeria, but did they keep up the pace to stay together or did the 90 Day Fiance couple break up?
[90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Spoilers Warning: Please stop reading if you do not want to know if Angela and Michael are apart or are still together after filming season 3 of the 90 Day Fiance spin-off].
Angela and Michael, whose official name is Kehinde Ilesanmi, initially played the lead role in Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days before appearing on the currently broadcast third season on TLC.
Angela was a 52-year-old hospice nursing assistant from Hazlehurst, GA when she first met Michael, a 30-year-old from Nigeria, online.
Angela, who was previously married and divorced, helped raise her six grandchildren and never thought she would walk down the aisle again – until she met Michael on Facebook.
A few months of talking on the phone resulted in Angela traveling to Nigeria to meet Michael in person, despite warnings from friends that Michael might be telling her.
She was about to propose a marriage to Michael in Nigeria right away, but then she discovered some red flags, as Michael admitted that he had had oral sex from a woman in a club.
Angela therefore postponed her marriage proposal and felt the need to get to know Michael better.
Michael’s intentions were also not entirely clear, because he very much wanted to move to the United States. He even idolized President Donald Trump and said he wants to be a rich, successful businessman in America.
But that didn’t seem to be the couple’s biggest problem, since they often fought when they were together.
Angela, however, said that she and Michael made up after each fight and really fell in love. Angela insisted that Michael had her heart and made her feel appreciated and desired.
She was therefore determined to continue the process of bringing Michael to the United States.
Meanwhile, Michael said he was looking forward to improving himself so that he could become the man Angela wanted him to be.
But 90 Day Fiance: for the second 90-day season, Angela ended up being accused of destroying her bank account and telling him to “go to hell.” (Angela later said that the incident was actually due to an ATM error).
Angela then broke up with Michael Ilesanmi during the recordings of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ Season 2 Tell-All special after he called her his’ older ‘.
At the time, Angela Deem insisted that she was repeatedly “done” with Michael, but that turned out not to be the case.
In September 2018, Michael reportedly told a fan who had responded to his Facebook page that he was “engaged” and expected to move to the US under “God’s grace” in 2019 before changing his privacy settings to publicly view his limit messages.
Then, days after 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ Season 2 Tell-All special broadcast on TLC in October 2018, Angela Deem changed her relationship status to “Engaged” on Facebook.
In November of that year, Angela Deem confirmed that she and Michael were still an item during an interview with In Touch Weekly.
“I’m in love with him. I don’t just love him. I can go further, but why? We’ve come that far,” Angela Deem told the magazine at the time.
“Michael and I have been together before and we’re going to make it. It’s just going to be difficult. I miss him a lot and I want to be with him.”
During the new season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, Angela discussed how her relationship with Michael Ilesanmi had evolved since their last appearance in the franchise.
“Michael and I have been engaged for about a year now. The truth is that we still have some problems, but I love him and I miss him, so I applied for a K-1 visa. And when he comes here, we will get married. I love him so much, “Angela Deem told the cameras.
Angela Deem, however, planned to return to Nigeria one last time pending approval of Michael’s visa.
Angela Deem said that Michael Ilesanmi had to prove that he would do anything to make her happy, especially since she had asked him to stop using social media and he went ahead and posted “showboating” photos with other women.
Angela spent their first time together with Michael Ilesanmi for only two weeks, but she was already planning their wedding day in the United States – the location and everything.
Angela has visited a location called Cotton Patch, with a pond, gardens and fountains. She hoped for an American ceremony, followed by an African-style reception complete with fireworks and televisions to show her guests their journey to love.
Angela received $ 45,000 for the location and all her special details, so she had to make sure that Michael was The One once and for all before she raised a lot of money.
Angela later told her daughter Skyla that she loved Michael but wasn’t sure if she could trust him. Angela expressed Michael’s behavior on social media, but then revealed that he wants a baby and she probably hadn’t seen any of her age.
Angela asked Skyla to give her an egg so she could have a baby with Michael, but Skyla was totally against the idea because the child was technically her.
Angela therefore asked Skyla if she would consider carrying her baby as a surrogate mother, but Skyla also called that idea “crazy” and said her mother had not thought well.
However, Skyla told Angela Deem that she could “carry” the baby as soon as she and Michael Ilesanmi settle together in their lives and really commit themselves to each other.
Angela Deem later discovered that the paperwork for Michael’s visa was being processed in California and it would take five to eight months to clear it. She was warned by her lawyer to take this very seriously, because Michael Ilesanmi who would come to the US would be a life-changing decision.
Angela Deem was also warned by the arrival of her lawyer Michael Ilesanmi to America, which would cost her thousands of extra dollars and would be held financially responsible for him, even if their relationship didn’t work.
Angela Deem said she loved Michael, but they needed to build trust in their relationship to get her ready for all this.
Michael, for example, apparently lied to Angela about going out on his birthday.
Michael told Angela that he would stay home and talk to her on his birthday, but apparently he didn’t answer his phone for a six-hour period. Angela said Michael again failed to keep his promises.
“He tells me what I want to hear and then he does what he wants,” Angela Deem ventured to the cameras.
Michael explained that he had his phone with him, but was in a noisy place and could not answer the phone.
Angela Deem was stressed because she worked hard to get Michael Ilesanmi to America, double shifts and whatever at work, and he couldn’t even step outside to take her phone call and touch the base.
Angela considered canceling her trip to Nigeria. Angela was angry, not because Michael went out on his birthday, but because he had lied to her again.
Angela Deem didn’t think Michael Ilesanmi cared or respected her, and she said she wouldn’t bring him to America if he kept lying to her. But Michael told Angela he’d be fine with her and he loved her and missed her.
Angela Deem said her next trip to Nigeria would “make or break” her relationship because she didn’t deserve to be treated that way.
Angela Deem then traveled to Nigeria to finally reunite with Michael Ilesanmi.
“I miss him … [but] I have to make sure he is the right one, so we really need this time to make sure we do the right thing … We have to figure things out.”
Angela Deem believed that Michael “constantly lied to her” and so they had to solve their problems before moving to the United States. However, Angela insisted that Michael Ilesanmi was not a bad guy and she was really excited to see her “baby.”
Based on what Michael shared with viewers, he had changed for Angela. His friends laughed at Michael Ilesanmi because he was beaten and didn’t deal with them much anymore.
“[Angela] now says I’m engaged, so I can’t do things like that,” Michael Ilesanmi said in a confessional.
Michael’s friends poke fun at Angela’s age and say that Michael has changed since he met the “bossy” American woman. They also called Angela “a sugar mommy” because she had asked Michael Ilesanmi to stop working and often sent him money to take care of things.
Michael’s friends were surprised that Michael let Angela Deem be the head of the household, but Michael suggested that this was only temporary.
“Of course I miss working and going out, but I’m afraid Angela Deem will get mad at me. Like when I went out on my birthday, she was super pissed off at me,” Michael Ilesanmi told the cameras.
Michael’s friends wanted to see Angela, but he felt nervous about such a meeting because Angela reportedly didn’t like them. Michael’s intention for the trip was to regain Angela’s confidence, and so he didn’t want any new problems.
When Michael met Angela at the airport, they embraced and kissed each other. But Michael Ilesanmi knew there was a lot at stake, because if Angela couldn’t grow to trust him, his chances of moving to the United States would be small.
Michael grumbled about how happy he was to see Angela Deem because he had missed her “so, so much.”
When the couple returned to Michael’s house, Angela Deem gave Michael a number of gifts, including Donald Trump boxers. He was excited because Angela was in a good mood and wanted to be a loving dovey.
Angela said that Michael Ilesanmi”stood in front of this white chocolate” and felt more at ease in his sexuality. She planned to make love with him and enjoy their first night together.
When Angela woke up the next morning, she was so happy and staggered that she was “in love” with Michael Ilesanmi. She said their first night together in a year was great, but she was still angry about Michael going out with friends for his birthday.
The couple then drove to the beach for an hour, but Angela was aggravated because Michael Ilesanmi was joking and didn’t seem to appreciate how much she had done to be with him. Angela didn’t think Michael cared or took their relationship seriously.
Michael Ilesanmi had hoped for a smooth first day in Nigeria together full of love and laughter, but Angela opted for a fight and brought up the past.
On the way to a boat trip, Angela asked Michael Ilesanmi if he had been on it before, and he said “yes” when he was younger with his uncle.
Angela Deem, however, called Michael Ilesanmi to lie because she had seen a photo of him on a boat near the same boat dock with women on the boat.
Angela accused Michael of being a liar and said she wanted to go home. She told Michael Ilesanmi to get his own hotel room for the night because she was “done” with him. Michael Ilesanmi told Angela that she accepted things and he told her the truth.
“I’ve had it! I’m tired of his lying and his nonsense. I don’t want to see him anymore. He doesn’t sleep in the room with me. I don’t know where he’s going, and I don’t give f-ck. I’m forever with Michael, “Angela Deem told the cameras.
Angela called Michael “a goddamn liar” and decided to go back to her hotel room instead of spending the day with her husband.
Michael Ilesanmi followed Angela to the hotel lobby where she had a drink, but she told him to leave and swear to him. Angela called him a “b-tch” and threatened to punch him in the mouth unless he left her alone.
However, Michael refused to leave the hotel because he really wanted to arrange things. Angela Deem was clearly upset, but Michael Ilesanmi thought a little time would allow Angela to cool down.
“How much respect do I get from this man that I give everything I got extra?” Angela Deem promised a confessional and added that she didn’t want to bring a man home that made her angry all the time.
“I gave him warnings after warnings, and I don’t have to tolerate anything like that. Me and Michael Ilesanmi are ready.”
Angela Deem was hurt and couldn’t believe Michael Ilesanmi loved her when he acted like that. That is why she ‘went out on the street alone’ and Michael apparently had slept in the car since Angela had thrown his things down the corridor of their hotel.
When Angela Deem walked out, Michael Ilesanmi was waiting for her there. But when he went to get the car for them, she ran into the busy streets and into a salon where she had her hair braided.
Angela waved to the hair stylists about how Michael had been unfair to her, but she had already applied for a K-1 visa. Angela Deem wasn’t sure if Michael was using her for a green card.
Michael Ilesanmi brought Angela a cake to apologize and make things right – because that had worked for Michael Ilesanmi in the past when they were fighting – but she threw the cake in his face.
Michael didn’t think he deserved that, regardless of what he had done, and he felt really embarrassed. Michael really started to think that things had been done between them.
After spending three days in Nigeria and traveling 7,000 miles, Angela Deem could not believe her relationship had fallen apart because Michael had chosen to lie about something “as stupid as” previously at a jetty.
Angela was “sick” of Michael Ilesanmi making mistakes. Angela wasn’t ready to forgive Michael, but she said they should talk.
Michael Ilesanmi was relieved that Angela Deem wanted to meet him, but he wasn’t happy with her either because she had thrown a cake in his face and had him sleep in his car one night.
Angela apologized for the cake incident and said people who love each other don’t treat each other this way. Angela Deem acknowledged that their relationship was “corrosive” and had no faith, and she deeply wondered if Michael was really using her to come to the United States.
Michael apologized for breaking Angela’s confidence, but he promised to be honest with her progress. Michael Ilesanmi wanted to make up for Angela Deem, but apparently she had heard that before.
Angela Deem simply asked Michael Ilesanmi if he was using her for “a visa,” and he replied, “Hell no. Hell no.”
Michael Ilesanmi told Angela that he wanted to change and stop his bad behavior, but Angela Deem said she would definitely be ready if he screwed it up again.
The couple therefore kissed and made up for it, but Angela Deem was clearly still worried about the situation.
After the couple got back together, they made a trip to see Michael’s mother. Angela told Michael’s mother that she would try every possible way to give Michael a child.
Michael Ilesanmi wanted to continue his family name, so he hoped Angela’s daughter would be willing to bear their baby.
Michael’s mother said that if the medical procedure didn’t work, Angela Deem would have to release him and allow Michael Ilesanmi to have a baby with another woman. But Angela insisted: “That doesn’t happen!”
“I don’t believe in that … No. Absolutely not … Who does that?!” Angela Deem ventilated.
Michael’s mother wasn’t happy to hear that Angela wouldn’t do anything to give Michael a baby, so the tension was high and Michael was stuck in the middle of the two women in his life.
So are Angela and Michael still together, or did the 90 Day Fiance couple end up breaking up?
Recently, in June 2019, Michael Ilesanmi posted several photos of the couple on his Instagram account – including a selfie of them together.
“Never o! Never be caught unbeatable. That’s how star do …. # 90dayfiancebeforethe90days #Karl #Rihanna # beforethe90days # 90dayfiancetea # 90daysfiance #star #skibi,” he subtitled the image.
In May 2019, Angela confirmed that the couple was still together, engaged and would return for season 3 of the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.
Angela was in New York City for a performance at the time, and she spilled the beans to a fan who approached her for a photo of how she and Michael Ilesanmi were still planning to tie the knot.
“We’re getting married! We’re filming now for 90 days! He’s coming here [to the United States],” Angela told the fan, according to In Touch.
When asked whether Michael Ilesanmi has “learned how to act well” in recent months, Angela has said all good things about him.
“Yes girl, I just have to feed him some chicken and behind closed doors he doesn’t talk anymore,” Angela reportedly told her fan.
A month earlier, Michael went to Instagram and shared a photo of the couple from the moment they were filming the 90 Day Fiance spin-off.
“Forever and one more day,” Michael wrote with a heart at the time, showing that they were still together then.
