Though these cast members loved their partners, their friends and family knew something was up. Which stars didn’t heed the warnings they got?
Being on the receiving end of “I told you so” can be hard, and these 90 Day Fiancé stars have had to answer to friends and family for warnings that went unheeded. These cast members may not have seen the red flags in their partner, but everyone else around them did—if only they had listened.
Sometimes, 90 Day Fiancé cast members get lucky and find that their family and friends are in support of their relationship with their partners from across the world. It’s rare in this franchise, but there have been couples who seem so right for each other that everyone is able to get on board.
But there are many more instances when the people closest to a cast member see the seeds of problems that their love ones can’t, and they try to warn them that their foreign partner spells trouble. Try as the might though, love made many franchise stars stubborn, and they went ahead with their relationships despite all the voices telling them not to.

But David brutally rebuked Evelyn’s friend, and the couple went ahead with the wedding. It turns out that friend was 100% right and fans were not shocked to hear that Evelyn and David are getting divorced. It turns out that David was emotionally abusive and passionless in their marriage, and Evelyn owes somebody an apology.

However, Liz got engaged to Ed in season 2, despite all the support she’d initially gotten from castmates for leaving him. Even on the season 2 Tell-All, the other castmates questioned Liz’s decision to reunite with Ed, and Liz can’t say she wasn’t warned.

It wasn’t long before her friend’s prediction came true and Jay cheated on her. Their relationship was on life support for a few years, but they’ve since split.

His fiancé Anfisa Arkhipchenko was very clear and upfront about her motives for being with Jorge.

Jorge’s family also tried to dissuade him from getting married to Anfisa, but Jorge chose not to listen to his family or bride and went ahead with the wedding.

But that didn’t stop the couple’s marriage plans, and Michael is still childless and probably regretful.

Many of David’s friends and family thought Lana was fake, but even the ones who believed she was real knew that she was scamming David.
