Jorge Nava is going through with plans he made months ago to divorce his wife Anfisa Arkhipchenko.
The 90 Day Fiance star filed the paperwork to initiate a divorce in Arizona shortly after marking three years of marriage, according to TMZ.
The reality TV fixture said he planned to divorce his wife back in March after he said she had abandoned him while he served out a prison sentence for transporting 293lbs of marijuana.
In his court filings, Nava listed the date of separation as November 19, 2020, and cited irreconcilable difference as the reason for divorcing.
He did not list any shared debts or properties in the filings, and he and Arkhipchenko never had children, so the process is likely to be straightforward.
Nava, who hails from Riverside, California, and Arkhipchenko, who is originally from Moscow, were among the most popular couples in season four of 90 Day Fiance, which follows couples in which a US citizen and a foreign partner have 90 days to plan a wedding after receiving their K-1 visa.
Viewers were convinced that Arkhipchenko was just after Nava’s money after she canceled her plans to come to the US after he refused to purchase her a $10,000 handbag.
During the tumultuous time together, he refused to pay for an engagement ring or a wedding dress, and the two eventually had a simple courthouse wedding.
Nava’s family continued to be distrustful of his wife, and the two separated for multiple months before he went to prison for trafficking hundreds of pounds of marijuana.
Although Nava claimed that his soon-to-be ex-wife had a lover while he was in prison, she doesn’t seem to have shared evidence of the relationship on social media.
But since he was released from prison in May, he has shared some passionate photos featuring a woman who isn’t his wife.
He shared two pictures of himself kissing an unidentified woman on Thursday to Instagram, including one of him holding her in the surf and another closeup of them locking lips.
The newly released felon has lately been showcasing his newly trim figure on social media after getting down to 190lbs after weighing in at 318lbs prior to his prison sentence.
