Popular The Family Chantel cast member Chantel Jimeno is rumored to be dating Rich Dollaz after news of her divorce with 90 Day Fiancé partner Pedro Jimeno went viral. Chantel and Pedro met fans via 90DF season 4 and even back then, their relationship was rocky. Fans predicted Chantel and Pedro wouldn’t last, but they did for six long years. Chantel and Pedro returned to the franchise on seasons 2, 3, and 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? They later became the first-ever couple featured on their own spin-off The Family Chantel from 2019 onwards.
The first three seasons of Chantel and Pedro’s show more or less revolved around their equally dramatic family members. But The Family Chantel season 4, which premiered in June this year, showed that the cracks in Chatel and Pedro’s marriage were crystal clear. While he started his new career as a real estate agent and Pedro and Chantel even bought their first home together, fans caught several clues about their split on the show and on Instagram. But the news of Pedro filing for divorce in May was truly shocking to fans who may have suspected that the couple was indulging in harmless drama to amp the show’s ratings.
In the newer episodes of The Family Chantel, the registered nurse has been accusing Pedro of cheating on her. Pedro’s female coworker called Antonella Barrenechea is being discussed as the cause of their breakup. Meanwhile, Reddit user u/Actual_Service_8057 shared a screenshot of an article by Dreddsworld, which claims Chantel has reportedly moved on from Pedro herself and is dating another reality TV star Rich Dollaz. Fans recognize him as a cast member of Love & Hip Hop: New York and he’s been a part of it since season 1 in 2011. According to the publication’s Atlanta-based insider, Chantel has been spotted with Rich “on at least two occasions.” Both these sightings were supposedly in the last month.
In the Reddit thread, fans discussed how Rich, a self-professed “creep,” could be just the first of many celebrities who might want to date the beautiful Chantel. Some fans joked that Rich looks a lot like Chantel’s dad Thomas Everett and 90 Day Fiancé star Pedro mixed together. “Are we sure it’s not his nephew catfishing on his instagram again?,” asked u/shunpoko referring to an episode of Catfish from 2018 in which a woman claimed she was in contact with Rich through his verified Instagram’s DMs. Fans think even if Chantel and Rich are considering a relationship, it won’t end well. “He’s even slimier than Pedro allegedly is,” wrote u/digitulgurl.
Upon their reality TV debut in 2016, Chantel and Pedro revealed how they met when she was looking for a Spanish teacher and he wanted to learn English. Pedro came to the U.S. on a K-1 visa and is now claiming that Chantel allegedly took $257,000 from a joint business account just five days before they separated. Both Pedro and Chantel filed for restraining orders against each other, and shockingly, The Family Chantel fan-favorite Chantel had mentioned physical domestic violence and mental pain caused to her in the marriage that’s irretrievably broken.
