Married at First Sight: Jessica Castro Files Restraining Order Against Ryan De Nino After Split
Marriage isn’t always a fairy tale, and that certainly seems to be the case for Married at First Sight‘s Ryan De Nino and Jessica Castro.
Last week on the show’s finale, the couple – who had many explosive fights throughout the season – appeared to be on the upswing and were one of two pairs who decided to stay married at the end of the experiment.
On Saturday, De Nino posted a photo on Instagram of what appears to be a restraining order taken out by Castro against him. Late last week, rumors began circulating on fan forums that De Nino left the show’s reunion taping early after being accused by Castro of being a drug user.
Amongst other allegations regarding the cast, the show’s casting process was also called into question by a supposed insider. According to Married at First Sight‘s show description, the three couples are matched by four specialists – a sexologist, a psychologist, a sociologist and a spiritual adviser – based on scientific matchmaking.
“We don’t know all the details and can’t comment on the specifics,” the show’s production company Kinetic Content tells PEOPLE exclusively of the post-show drama. “What we can say is that unfortunately, couples on the show can go through real divorces, and divorce can often be difficult.”
Kinetic continued, “The experts on our show have the best of intentions and highest hopes for success for each couple. After undergoing extensive background and psychological checks by third parties, couples agree to be legally married on our show. We document their journey for six weeks after their wedding, but we can’t control how they behave, or govern their actions after production. Our thoughts are with these individuals, and as always we have offered each of them significant aftercare resources. We wish them nothing but the best and hope they have a bright future ahead of them.”
According to a production source, many of the rumors circulating about the reunion are “untrue,” and Castro never brought up drug use. “It never crossed anyone’s lips,” says the source. “Allegations of drug use were never raised.”
Neither Castro nor De Nino have directly addressed the rumors, but De Nino took to Instagram to vent about the situation. “Unfortunately this isn’t something I’d wish on anyone,” he captioned his photo of the apparent restraining order. “To hear and read about the forum on Thursday to come home and find this on Friday Bash me all you want, say whatever it is about me Why I posted this will be thoroughly explained when the time’s right.”
Meanwhile, Castro posted a telling quote on her Instagram: “There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.”
