90 Day Fiancé stars Jenny and Sumit are in the spotlight right now. Sumit shocked fans when he revealed that he’s not actually single — he’s married. Jenny appeared shocked as well, crying when she received the news. However, this isn’t Sumit’s first big lie to Jenny. Sumit catfished her when they first started out.
Some 90 Day Fiancé fans did some digging, and it seems as if Jenny and Sumit could have pulled the wool over their eyes. While it’s certainly not confirmed, there are some telltale signs hinting that not everything is as it seems.
Sumit catfished Jenny on Facebook
When the 90 Day Fiancé couple first met, they were communicating via Facebook. Jenny Slatten had met a man who went by Michael Jones, and claimed to be a male model. Jenny and Jones hit it off, but when things got more serious, Jones came clean.
He was actually an Indian man named Sumit who lived with his parents in Delhi, and worked at a call center. Slatten seemingly took the information in stride. She told the camera, “You know, what you do for love, sometimes is unbelievable. I think that everyone is entitled to happiness… I didn’t really think I would find love again, to tell you the truth.”
Slatten went on to say, “I was married for 15 years, Everything was fine as far as I knew, so when I found out he was leaving me for somebody else, that was a huge blow to my self-esteem. And after my divorce, life was scary.”
Unfortunately, this was only Sumit’s first lie to Slatten. Most recently, Sumit came clean to Slatten about something much more damning.
Sumit’s already married
When Slatten met Sumit’s parents, things did not seem to go well. Sumit’s mother was not happy that he was with this woman, and fans were convinced it was due to the age difference. Slatten is 30 years Sumit’s senior, and also older than his own mother.
Sumit had to move out of his parents’ house, as they would not allow Slatten to stay with them. Sumit told his parents he moved out for work, and he and Slatten started their lives together in a separate apartment.
Sumit soon started leaving Slatten behind in the apartment. He claimed that he needed to go home for a week to convince his parents that nothing was amiss. It wasn’t long until the truth came out, however. Sumit eventually revealed the Slatten that he’s been lying to her the whole time — he is already married.
Are fans being taken for a ride?
90 Day Fiancé fans did some digging into Jenny Slatten’s social media history, and some of them feel as if they might have been taken for a ride. SoapDirt uncovered a Facebook post wherein a woman claiming to be Slatten’s cousin says Slatten knew all along.
“I told everyone he was married. She’s my cousin and she knew he was married the whole time,” the user wrote.
Meanwhile, another user found a Facebook post from Slatten in 2012 in which she liked a clip from MTV’s Catfish. Below it, she wrote, “A show for Sumit n mee to be on [sic].” It seems as if Slatten has been trying to cash in on her situation with Sumit since 2012 at the latest. If fans give Slatten the benefit of the doubt, it’s believable that she was making a joke.
However, SoapDirt also provided a third piece of inciminating evidence — a photo featuring Jenny Slatten sitting happily next to Sumit’s mother, who looks surprisingly happy, along with Sumit’s mother’s friend. The photo was taken in 2013.
Now, 90 Day Fiancé fans are faced with several questions. Hopefully TLC will be able to clear the air on this soon.
