90 day fiance Michael Jessen’s house in foreclosure, he and Juliana went their separate ways
It seems that one of the most unlikely sequels of the 90 day fiancé the franchise can collapse. 90 day fiancé Season 7 star Juliana Custodio has strongly hinted at TikTok that she and her husband, Michael Jessen, have gone their separate ways. The video comes just months after foreclosure proceedings were filed on Michael’s home, purchased for $ 1.19 million in 2019.
Did Michael and Juliana break up?
Juliana added flames to the breakup rumor as she answered a question about whether she and Michael are still married on TikTok. In a video posted earlier this week, Juliana spoke to her followers with the ‘Stop asking if I’m still married’ message written on the video.
“Everyone keeps asking me if I’m still married,” Juliana said at the start of the clip. “It’s really, really tough, and I’m not ready to talk about it yet.”
“If you find out, you’ll hate me, forever.” Everyone is going to hate me, ”added Juliana. “That’s why I’m a little weird.”
Here is the video:
Juliana responded to a few comments and confirmed that she is not currently in the United States. (This seemed obvious given her latest story videos on Instagram showing her in Hamburg, Germany.) Here are Juliana’s unedited comments and responses:
COMMENT: She’s more than gorgeous in America [they?] will love it.
JULIANE: I’m not even in America.
COMMENT: You will reveal that everything has been rigged for television and social networks. We won’t hate you !! Unless the truth is deceived?
JULIANE: I did not do it !!!, it sucks after all, the woman always takes the na [sic]
COMMENT: People ask because you choose to make your life public. You choose to show everyone your relationship and now when people are wondering.
JULIANE: I never chose to be in this series, I never wanted or liked.
In addition to the TikTok video suggesting that she and Michael may have separated, Juliana also deleted all of Michael’s photos from her main Instagram feed. There are still a few videos with Michael in his story highlights, but that’s it. The most recent story clip with Michael is from eight weeks ago. I don’t know when Juliana left for her current international trip.
Michel’s Instagram also lacking a bit with regard to Juliana. He shared a few birthday photos of Juliana on September 5, but they were older photos from a previous birthday celebration. The most recent appearance I could find of Juliana on Michael’s Instagram was a live video shared on July 21.

Michael Jessen’s house seized
90 day fiancé Fans will recall that Michael Jessen bought a beautiful house in Connecticut in order to have more room for his two children and his future bride, Juliana. As we reported, the house sold in July 2019 for $ 1,195,000 and Michael put down $ 250,000 on a 30-year mortgage. That left him on the hook for $ 945,000.
According to court documents, Michael stopped paying his mortgage payments in April 2020, less than a year after he bought the house. On July 1, 2021, the mortgage lender filed a foreclosure complaint against Michael. In addition to foreclosing on the mortgage, the lender was also attempting to claim “immediate possession of the mortgaged premises”.
As of July 1, a federal mortgage moratorium was in place in the United States due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately for Michael, it doesn’t look like he was protected by the moratorium.
Extract from the lender’s affidavit:
This foreclosure action can take place for the following reasons:
The loan secured by a mortgage lien on the property is not a “federal backed mortgage” as defined by 15 USC 9056 (a) (2) of the Coronavirus Relief, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”)
I have checked the property records and they say Michael bought the house with a “purchase money mortgage”. Here is information on mortgage loans for the purchase of Rocket mortgage:
What is a money purchase mortgage?
A mortgage or seller / owner financing is a loan given to the buyer by the seller of the property. This is common in situations where the buyer does not qualify for standard bank financing.
As a “bank”, the seller sets the conditions for the deposit, interest rate and closing costs. The buyer pays the seller a down payment and a signed financing instrument that describes the details of the loan. Like a typical mortgage, the financing instrument is registered with the county protecting both the interests of the buyer and the seller.
Why would buyers choose seller financing over a traditional bank mortgage?
This usually happens when buyers have bad credit, a high debt ratio, or a low down payment and are not eligible for traditional bank financing. Willing sellers can provide the financing by accepting the down payment and setting the loan terms based on the buyer’s qualifications and the seller’s needs.
Michael filed a foreclosure mediation request / certificate on July 22. A week later, the court assigned the case to the foreclosure mediation program. “The foreclosure mediation program has been established in accordance with PA 08-176 and its purpose is to help homeowners and lenders reach a mutually acceptable resolution of a mortgage foreclosure action through the mediation process.” , Explain Connecticut Judicial Branch website.
The case is set for a remote mediation hearing on November 4. I guess Michael and his family will be able to stay in the house at least until the mediation is over.
