Married at First Sight pair Amelia Fatsi and Bennett Kirschner have officially started the divorce process after months of speculation. Meanwhile, it looks like Amelia recently picked up an unusual side hustle. So, does she need the extra cash to help pay for legal fees?
Married at First Sight: Bennett Kirschner Files for Divorce from Amelia Fatsi
Despite hitting it off on Season 11 of Married at First Sight in New Orleans, split chatter surrounded this Lifetime pair for the last few months. MAFS watchers know Amelia had to relocate to Virginia in order to begin her residency. And, even though Bennett agreed to follow her there, watchers picked up on a few things that suggested there was trouble in paradise for these two.
The biggest red flag was that the Married at First Sight duo stopped posting updates with one another. Instead, more and more, there were solo updates from both Bennett and Amelia. And, it was clear that individually, they were doing their own things. Meanwhile, the fact that neither Bennett nor Amelia addressed their relationship status publicly only fueled the split rumors further.
But, after months of keeping fans in the dark, court documents surfaced. And in them, Bennett files for divorce from his Married at First Sight wife, Amelia Fatsi. So, even though this is indirect confirmation that the pair called it quits, if nothing else, it finally puts the rumors regarding their relationship status to rest.
Amelia Taking on a Side Gig to Help with Legal Fees?
Even with the divorce document making the rounds, Amelia and Bennett remain silent on their former relationship. And, from the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like they will ever address it publicly. In the meantime, though, it seems Amelia found herself a new side hustle.
As Married at First Sight watchers know, in addition to pursuing a career in the medical field, Amelia Fatsi is also musically inclined. Bennett Kirschner’s ex can play several instruments. And, it looks like she wants to be a musician for hire – particularly a Theremin player.
Amelia Plays What?
Certainly, the Theremin is an unorthodox instrument that you play without actually touching it. And, given Amelia’s quirky nature, it’s not entirely surprising that she would pick this instrument.
Invented in Russia in the early 1900s, the Theremin is unlike most instruments viewers may think of. Unlike a guitar or piano, which requires the player to be in contact with frets and keys to produce sound, Theremin players use hand movements to produce changes in pitch and volume without ever actually touching the instrument.
Married at First Sight celeb Amelia Fatsi shared a photo of her playing this bizarre instrument. And, she appears to be on stage – perhaps in a theater production of some kind. And, along with a photo of her in action, she said she is available for anyone’s “theremin related needs”.
Married at First Sight Celeb Doing Her Own Thing
No matter what Amelia decides to do with this next chapter of her life, it’s clear she is more than happy doing her own thing. Bennett Kirschner’s ex recently got her paragliding license. And, along with that, she can add Theremin player to her long list of talents.
Certainly, now that the divorce process is underway with Bennett Kirschner, it’ll be interesting to see what she does once her divorce is official – and whether or not she will shack up with someone new anytime soon. Either way, she seems to be living her best life with her Married at First Sight chapter nearly behind her for good.
