The mum of a man who sends his Filipino fiancée £400 ($480) a month has threatened that if she's not being honest, 'I will find you'.
Shaun, 41, features in a brand new series of 90 Day Fiancé UK, the British version of the hit reality show which follows eight loved-up participants whose long distance partners travel over to the country to see if their relationship is the real deal.
The Hampshire resident and his relationship with Filipino mum-of-four Christine, 42, is explored in the series as they're set to meet in real life for the first time since they started chatting online 10 years ago.
In a clip shared by discovery+, the 41-year-old's concerned parents discuss the moment their son got a call to say Christine's visa application had been rejecting, leaving them wondering whether she had applied for the entry document in the first place.
Take a look:
Speaking to the camera, she sent out a threatening warning: "Christine, if you are playing a game with Shaun and you are stringing him along, I will find you girl, and you will wish your mum never gave birth to you."
The couple initially met online in 2012, and started their 7,000 mile long-distance relationship in 2013.
In 2017, Christine gave birth to Shaun's son Christian, although he's only been able to meet his son a total of four times, which has understandably been difficult for the pair.
With plans to get the mum-of-one a visa so that she can move to the UK, Shaun has been sending her £400 a month to help her and her kids.
Shaun, a cleaning manager, said: “From all these eight years I’ve been with Christine, I wouldn’t know how much money I would have sent her.
“But all I know is it’s in the hundreds of thousands. It’s worth every penny.
“After I’ve sent Christine the money, there’s enough for me to pay my bills at least, and then when I look again, I’ve got about £50-£60 for myself, and that’s more than enough to see me through the month.”
Another spanner in the works is that Christine is still married, and Shaun is saving up the £5,000 to pay for his lover's annulment in the hopes of them getting hitched once and for all.
Whether or not their relationship will go the distance is for you to find out, but there's no denying there are plenty of hurdles for the couple to go through before they can get their happily ever after.
