“90 Day Fiance” Star Jonathan Rivera Reveals What Caused His Split From Fernanda Flores; Says They’re Not Faking Breakup For Ratings

“Hey TLC, do you have any dating shows with open spots?”

The drama continues between 90 Day Fiance stars Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores, with all signs pointing to their marriage being truly over.

Last week, Jonathan and Fernanda (kind of) addressed the rumors circulating that said they had split. Jonathan claimed that Fernanda left him to go to Chicago to pursue a modeling career. At the time he said he, “could only give her so much.”

He recently expanded on what went wrong in their whirlwind romance.

“Listen, this is the last comment I’ll make,” Jonathan said. [Sure, Jan…]

“We wouldn’t have been married had we not had the time constraints,” Jonathan wrote in the comment section of one of his recent Instagram posts. “90 days isn’t enough time to get to know someone. We had the best intentions.”

Jonathan confirmed that Fernanda’s model dreams were a large part of the reason they split.

“Commitment means everything, but it’s a two-way street,” Jonathan wrote. “When you give me an ultimatum of closing my business or moving to continue my relationship so you can pursue your dreams, you put me in a tough position. I work too hard to just give it up. I’m also committed to my business and responsibilities.”

Some fans, however, are still speculating that this is just a ploy to get the couple more screen time, or possibly a spot on one of the franchise’s spin-off shows. When a fan accused Jonathan and Fernanda of being together but having to pretend to be fighting in order to get ratings for the show, Jonathan confirmed that was false.

Surprisingly, Jonathan still had nice things to say about his ex.

“I know she’ll be a star,” he said. “I’ll always support her.”

Jonathan said he does not think Fernanda was using him just to get screen time, as some fans suggested.

“Fernanda and I were already approved for the K-1 before ever being approached by the show,” he wrote. “I don’t believe her intentions were for fame, that may have changed.”

He also defended himself against fans who accused him of not working hard enough to save his marriage.

“Two years of trying isn’t sufficient?” Jonathan wrote to one fan. “This didn’t happen over night…”

Jonathan didn’t weigh in on whether the young age of his bride was a factor in their split. Fernanda was only 19-years-old when they got married (although in the comment section of the Instagram post, he tells a fan he thought she was 24 when they first met).

Fernanda has remained relatively tight-lipped on her split from Jonathan. Although she did post a photo of herself shooting a gun, along with a caption about “something” trying to destroy her, she has turned the comments off on her Instagram posts so that fans can’t weigh in.

  1. HMMM….COLTEE IS THAT YOU?? IJS. YOU’RE USING THE SAME LANGUAGE, VERBIAGE AND STATEMENTS YOU’VE MADE BEFORE AND ON THE TELL ALL. YOU GOT ENUF PROBLEMS, BRUH. LIKE YOUR ILLITERATE NOT-FROM-BRAZIL-BUT-REALLY-FROM-RUSSIA IN NEED OF ANGER MANAGEMENT SPOUSE WILL BE ARRESTED AGAIN AT SOME POINT. SHE DSNT BELONG HERE, SHE’S RUDE & DISRESPECTFUL TO EVERYONE. REMIND HER THAT THIS IS OUR COUNTRY! SHE’S SO JEALOUS OF FERNANDA AND IT’S SO OBVIOUS…..NO ONE CAN DENY THE WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL, EXCEPT YOUR CRATER-FACED WIFE. SHE’S UGLY INSIDE & OUT AND YOU TWO LOOK ODD TOGETHER.


  2. This situation has me very angry, because Fern is making me more sympathetic toward Larissa. I KNOW!! Shut upeee!!


    1. She got the boobs before she even hit US soil – she’s a playa playa. If this modeling thing doesn’t pan out, she can teach classes on roping in poor “rich” Americans.


  3. Jonathan back peddles so much. I took a screen shot of him admitting they were together 2.5 years. I knew he would delete it when he realized his math was off. In a separate post Jonathan also admitted during their relationship Fernanda applied to live in USA thru her Dad(american citizen) but was denied. Add that to their relationship age/timeline. Jonathan lured Fernanda in by buying her gifts, plastic surgery etc. Basically he purchased himself a child bride. Now Jon’s child bride begins to act her age expecting more gifts from him, what do you expect Jonathan?


  4. Although I liked them together, it’s becoming more apparent that was more of a lust over love relationship. He seems intelligent, but he was a little silly to think that she was mentally mature enough to be tied down from 19 til forever….and although she is really pretty, she’s not going to be anything more than an instagram model…best of luck to them both.


    1. I think she is one of those girls that is only pretty WITH make up to be honest. My brother watches the show too and I once I told him that I didn’t know of Fernanda was pretty or ugly..

      Anyway I am kind of dissapointed in her, I thought she was sweet and innocent but she turned out to be stuck up and loving the drama.


    1. I came here to see if anyone was willing to point out the obvious… Maybe it’s because I live in an area very diverse, but there are tons of Hispanic women far more beautiful than Fern, but she thinks she’s gonna be a big time model?
      Well, I guess America is really good about making people famous for nothing. Also see, 90 Day Fiancé.
