On the finale of Married at First Sight–the one that aired less than one week ago–Ryan De Nino and Jessica Castro decided to stay married after the six-week experiment. Fast-forward about five months, and, not only are they no longer together, but Jessica just obtained a restraining order against Ryan.
During the season, it was apparent that Ryan and Jessica had a very tumultuous relationship — which involved a handful of yelling matches and days of mutually cold shoulders. Last week, someone who claimed to be connected to production on the show posted on a popular forum that what went on behind the scenes was even worse.
There was no male casting done. One guy was found on match.com, one on facebook because he had acted and modeled prior, and one was a friend of a contestant on season 1. NONE of these men wanted to be married. They all wanted to advance their careers or have “fame.” … Jess found out two weeks after the experiment was over that Ryan lied about his job and all the money he doesn’t have. He is an aspiring actor/ model that is broke. He stole the $100. The truth comes out he is really a drug dealer and addicted to cocaine. That’s why he leaves the set and then he began to threaten Jessica’s life… Jess’s Ryan never showed up to film a few times and went MIA. She found out later he was having sex and cheating on her at his ex girlfriends apartment.
In another comment, the supposed producer said Jessica confronted Ryan about all of those allegations in the six-month reunion show:
“Once she said he was not only addicted to cocaine but was a drug dealer ryan walked off set and started ranting and screaming how he is going to kill that f-ing b-itch when they get back and how she is dead! Everyone on set could hear him,” the “insider” said. “She was going to file a restraining order but the show talked her out of it as it would be in public records and spoil their show. Instead they gave her security guards that walk her to and from work and anywhere she goes until the reunion is over.”
As off-the-wall as those claims are, Ryan himself confirmed one part of the story this weekend by revealing Jessica did obtain a restraining order last week.
“Unfortunately this isn’t something I’d wish on anyone. To hear and read about the forum on Thursday to come home and find this on Friday. To see the IG on Sat and see the location was enough,” he said on Instagram.
They say first 48 for a reason. This is another fact here’s the order of protection- which had me in awe and when I read it was disgusted. Bash me all you want, say whatever it is about me just remember this board don’t break for nada. Why I posted this will be thoroughly explained when the times right. #CheckMate
The forum poster said all of the couples were contractually obligated to hold off filing for divorce for at least six months; however, Jessica is reportedly so upset that “she wants an annulment instead of a divorce since they put her life in danger.” So far, she hasn’t addressed the allegations about Ryan or the restraining order on social media, but she seemed to have a positive attitude in an Instagram post from Saturday:
