In a sneak peek of Tuesday’s episode, Tristan immediately phoned their producer, Eric Detwiler, in an attempt to rectify the situation. He said, “I know that s— can get fabricated when it comes to exes and things like that nature."
A visibly upset Tristan continued, “I get it but that doesn’t stop the fact that I have to live with this s— right now. All of this is piling up, and now I’m sitting here not knowing who I just married.”
According to the official court documents, his new wife was charged with three counts of stalking and one count of unauthorized use of a credit card. Both of these charges stem from a previous relationship.
A rep for the show told People in a statement, “On this season of Married at First Sight, one of this season’s participants — Mia — was detained at the airport by authorities as she was about to leave on her honeymoon with her new husband, Tristan. The warrant for Mia’s arrest was filed after her background check had been cleared by production.”
“Viewers will have the opportunity to watch their emotionally true story as it unfolds in real time throughout the season and learn whether or not the couple ultimately decides to stay married or get a divorce,” the statement ended.
