90 Day Fiance alum Luis Mendez confirmed that he will be deported “next month” to the Dominican Republic.
The news follows his split from ex-wife Molly Hopkins.
The reasoning behind his deportation is unknown, though it has been speculated that he doesn’t have his green card.
Soap Dirt broke the news about his deportation on Tuesday.
The publication noted that Luis would have to marry a citizen of the United States or else his next wife “would be ineligible to sponsor his permanent immigration status.”
Back in October 2018, Luis told In Touch that he married someone new following his divorce from Molly.
He told the publication: “Yes, I did get married. That was my wedding [on] September 19.
“I love this girl so much.”
Luis, who appeared on the fifth season of 90 Day Fiance, never revealed the identity of his new bride, though gushed about his “amazing” wife.
He said: “The most amazing part was meeting her because she changed all life to happiness.”
During their season of the TLC show, Molly was warned by family and friends that Luis only wanted to marry her to secure his green card.
Despite her family’s concerns, the fan favorite went ahead and married Luis.
Back in 2017, Mary told the show’s production team that Luis “pressured” her into marrying him when they first met the officiant as opposed to waiting for the ceremony.
The couple eventually split in 2018 after just six months of marriage.
Molly’s much younger ex then married his second wife just months later.
Luis previously told In Touch that he has had “no contact” with Molly since their split and said that he wanted to be “happy” as he moved on from the divorce.
She filed for divorce from Luis on January 23.
According to divorce documents obtained by Reality Blurb, she listed the reason for their divorce as “the marriage is irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”
Molly has also been focusing on herself following the breakup and has lost 40 lbs.
She has also kept busy with her lingerie business.
Molly owns LiviRae Lingerie with Lifetime’s Double Divas star Cynthia Decker.
