Michael Ilesanmi (L) is married to Angela Deem (R)


A popular Nigerian cast member of the US reality dating TV show 90 Day Fiancé has been missing in the US since last Friday, his wife says.

Michael Ilesanmi’s whereabouts remain unknown after he left the house he shared with his wife without his belongings, his wife, Angela Deem, said in a livestream on TikTok. She says the police have been alerted.

The couple met on Facebook and got married in 2020, but Mr Ilesanmi’s US visa applications were initially unsuccessful.

He finally obtained a visa and joined Ms Deem in the US state of Georgia last December.

Fans of 90 Day Fiancé are speculating on the circumstances of the disappearance, as the couple’s relationship was often portrayed as physically and verbally abusive on the show and its spin-offs.

The show airs on the TLC cable channel, and follows US couples in relationships with foreigners.

They usually have 90 days to get married from the time they obtain an American K-1 fiancé visa.
