RETURN TO AMISH Carmela and Jeremiah Raber divorce drama plays out on Facebook

Carmela and Jeremiah Raber divorce

It appears that the fairy tale romance between Return To Amish stars Carmela and Jeremiah Raber has gone from Disney to Grimm. The two reconciled after Jeremiah’s arrest for domestic violence back in April, and with Jeremiah attending counseling, things seemed to be going OK. But, this weekend the two BLEW UP at each other on their public Facebook pages, hurling accusations of lying and abuse while talking as though their divorce is a done deal.

From the narrative presented to the popcorn munchers on Facebook [GUILTY!], it appears as though the final straw for Carmela was…a FedEx package?

Carmela and Jeremiah Raber divorce over FedEx package?

It’s unclear exactly what the FedEx package in question was, but many are guessing it is one of Jeremiah or Carmela’s paintings — which they are currently selling on eBay. The most recent painting by Carmela to sell was this one, which ended on June 23:

Kinda looks familiar, right? And just to make sure I keep this post as bipartisan as I can, here is one of Jeremiah’s paintings, which I think is an eyeball literally crying a river?

OK, enough with the fine art — let’s get back to the recent drama…

UPDATE – Going by clues from some of Jeremiah and Carmela’s later conversations, the FedEx package apparently had something to do with her recent car accident and her insurance.

Next up, we have this Facebook conversation between the two:

After those posts, things REALLY blow up as Carmela accuses Jeremiah of trying to swindle her out of their property, while Jeremiah says Carmela just wanted to be on TV and she abused his children.

First up, here is Jeremiah’s “Free at last!” post:

Finally I am free finally I am out of hell. I’ve been reminded on a daily basis that my biological parents didn’t want me My adoptive parents didn’t want me and even now no one wants me around. Now that the TV show is done now she wants a divorce and she is refusing to sign the property over the way she said if I would sign the papers. She used me to get on TV. Even her friend told her to do it and I saw the messages. After all the s***. that she’s put me through I’ll gladly sign the papers. She even went so far as to put me in jail over bruises that I had nothing to do with. She forced me to message people and lie to them just a few days ago about what happened. She mentally abused my kids over the last 3 days by lying to them Non-Stop. She has never liked my kids and that’s why she always acted up and refused to go with me to pick them up or take them home. I don’t need someone like that around my kids. I am proud to say I am free and Out of Hell finally. This time I don’t care especially after what all she’s done to me and my kids. And I have pictures and messages to prove everything.

Carmela fired back (or fired first? I’m not really sure of the exact timeline.) with text message receipts! Here are those texts with Jeremiah followed by the captions for each:

Im so stupid.

Carmela’s most recent posts were two photos of herself. The first one she captioned with “This day i decided to make a change.” For the other she wrote “What the hell was i smiling for..” I’m guessing you will be able to figure out which is which:

I hope for Carmela’s sake that she doesn’t give in to the pressure from Jeremiah and she makes sure she speaks to an attorney before signing over anything. I could say the same for Jeremiah, but I feel very confident he will be adequately looking out for his own interests.

UPDATE – Jermela’s Facebook feud continues, and the allegations reveal a “hellish relationship full of lies, mental abuse, physical violence, and alleged attempted killings. Yes, that is plural.” Click the quote for more.

It’s unclear if fans will get to see any of the Jermela divorce drama on screen as TLC has yet to announce whether or not Return To Amish will be back for another season.

    Look at the bruises on her arms in those selfies! Did Jeremiah do that?

    • Fed up

      Good catch? Look like finger prints

  • Bren

    I sorta think Carmella used the show for money. Remember, there are two sides to every story. I think she is blowing up the victim part. JMO

    • Chris Rose

      Oh please.

  • TrashTV

    Oh Carmella, we all know Jer likes to play victim and twists things and is a douche, you don’t need to put your private life on FB like this.
    Talk to your lawyer, his promisse he won’t show up at the hearing is no good anyway. He will be there with that big grin he has when he succesfully started sh.. or ‘outsmarted’ someone.
    First he abuses you, makes a public apology and now he denies it again cause it suits him better now. Don’t trust him.

    • therealevilqueen

      Yes he does. Victim is something he tries to play up when he can. He throws out every excuse he can think of for why he is a jerk and abusive to others. Then after its out there he wants a pity party for himself because he was adopted and even they got tied of his act. I’m surprised he is allowed around his kids actually without a person supervising him because of his history with abuse. Which trying to say Carmela was abusing his kids….I have to wonder if it wasn’t him. And all the crap about not going to get his kids with him or drop them off with him is stupid. She shouldn’t need to do that. It sounded like another excuse for his behavior and more lies as well on who did what. Anyone that defends him at this point ….just SMH.
      I will say that I don’t think she is as dense as the show wanted to have people think but it was an act. Yet I do think she had to have known his VERY public history of abuse and such but did want some tv. Even so there is not one single excuse that Jeremiah could use to make putting his hands on her ok. Or to verbal abuse her or any other woman he has.

    Carmella don’t trust him! He’s a snake in the grass! I believe that if you would admit it, this was not the first time that he laid hands on you!! He’s not a man, because no man does that to a woman. Fight for the divorce and don’t give him a damn thing…especially if he didn’t pay for it!! Also, don’t let him play the boo-hoo victim sob story to you. If anything, you and your children are the victims. I mean Look at all the bruises on your arms,and that’s just the ones we can see! It me tak abuse is just as bad, sometimes worse on people!! He deserves nothing except to have his ass beat and handed to him and to be mentally abused until the point where he breaks!! You had a hard enough life growing up in a cult and I feel like he used your weakness and fear to manipulate you and run over you as well as scare you and that is not right by any means!! I will be praying for you to have comfort and peace as well as strength and guidance during this time. Keep your head held high.

    Once an abuser ALWAYS an abuser- People who think any different think life’s a fairytale

  • Josie

    That poor girl is covered in bruises.

  • Erica

    Carmella is not an innocent. She has real mental issues and comes across as manipulative and a spoiled brat. It gets very old to hear her blame all her bad outcomes as the Cult Curse. Good grief -she is an adult so cut the crap stories. Who is the Ella Marie Raber in the texts?

    • Melissa Castango

      I agree with you 100%

    • Marlene Cooper

      Ella Maria Raber is the same as Carmela Raber.

      • Erica

        Hmmm-that is interesting. I wonder why the need for an alias? I suppose it is part of her cult curse.

        • therealevilqueen

          Doubt its an alias considering the rest of the name used but more like a nickname from her full first name. She just adds an extra L into Ella instead of it being Ela. Don’t see anything wrong there.

          • Erica

            So how does that transfer into Carmela?

  • brenda

    JEREMIAH has his baggage but she is weirdly insane. Sometimes i think she is arguing with the voices in her head rather than any sort of reality. good riddance.

  • jen

    look at the buries all over her arms she needs to leave him

  • therealevilqueen

    Why is this crap being called a “fairy tale romance”? How was it any of that to begin with? Then on top of it why in the hell would anyone want this to play out on TLC? He should have never been on the show to begin with because of his abusive history. Then to let it happen to others on the show with his verbal abuse towards the women….who the hell would want to watch this douche on tv at this point? Let along his issues with Carmella play out?
