90 Day Fiancé Season 8 couple Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva are the talk of the fandom right now, thanks in large part to their drama both inside and outside the TLC program. The couple decided to marry on the last day of her K1 visa, despite the fact that Michael had considerable doubts about whether or not he wanted to go through with the marriage. Now, it's been reported thaa tthe two are separated after less than a year, and a potential factor in the split may have surfaced via leaked messages.
Screenshots of messages between Mike Youngquist and an unnamed woman have been making the rounds as of late and, according to fan account That Mommy Who Says Bad Words, the exchanges took place back in December. Check out a picture below, which contained a screenshot of messages between Mike and the alleged woman on Facebook:
Apparently, the exchange continued on Snapchat and ultimately ended with a nude selfie sent by Mike Youngquist. While I can't personally verify that the above conversation is legitimate and not fake in any way, I can confirm that the profile picture is the same one currently on Mike's Facebook page, which does promote both his Instagram and Snapchat pages.
If Natalie Mordovtseva caught Mike Youngquist sending inappropriate messages to women, then this could be the source of the couple's current relationship troubles. Mike's Uncle Beau told outlets that Natalie had been out of Mike's home "for months," but the two appeared in the upcoming tell-all for 90 Day Fiancé Season 8 (which filmed in late February) and seemed to be very close for two people who wouldn't be together. It's also worth noting that Beau's comments aside, neither Mike nor Natalie have confirmed anything about their relationship one way or the other.
This could be because the couple is signed on for the upcoming season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, which would document any of the drama that may or may not have happened during the past few months. Happily Ever After? is typically reserved for couples with issues in their marriage, so these conversations or other things could be what eventually led the two to separate.
Whether the two will stay separated, though, is always a question, as Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva have had their blowout fights before. This couple literally went from completely broken up to married within a couple of days so, even if the two are currently separated, one has to wonder if it's a separation that will stick long-term. There's also a skeptic in me that wonders if all this confusion on their relationship status could be a way to drum up support for 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, which the show has allegedly encouraged cast members to do in the past.
Fans will get some answers for sure when 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After airs on TLC Sunday, April 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Hopefully, the series will set the record straight regarding all rumors with Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva and show the two in a happier place regardless of the outcome of their relationship.
