‘The Family Chantel’: Chantel Cites Domestic Violence & Adultery – Pedro Wants Divorce Sealed?

The Family Chantel divorce drama between Chantel Everett & Pedro Jimeno has been heating up ever since news of their divorce filing first broke. Meanwhile, it looks like the pair want their divorce documents sealed. So what’s the latest?

The Family Chantel: Ugly Divorce Playing Out in Public Space

As longtime 90 Day Fiance and The Family Chantel cast members, Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett have had their personal lives on display for many years. And now, things get ugly with a divorce pending between the estranged TLC exes.

Meanwhile, adding another layer to all of this is the fact that The Family Chantel Season 4 is currently on the air. So viewers essentially know how this situation plays out long before the currently-airing season catches up. In addition, knowing what happens between these two in real-time adds another facet to the watching experience as a whole.

TLC Celeb Pedro Jimeno Receiving Threats & More?

Certainly, The Family Chantel fans have been divided ever since news of the couple’s pending divorce made the rounds. Indeed, many fans call out Pedro for essentially scamming Chantel for a green card and a career in America – as well as a means to get his mother and sister stateside.

And based on The Family Chantel fallout from all of that, it looks like Pedro Jimeno has been receiving “threats” at his place of work – and on social media. And because of this, there’s a motion filed to “seal” the divorce.

Interestingly, it was Chantel Everett that filed the motion to seal the divorce rather than Pedro Jimeno – even though Pedro is the one allegedly receiving threats.

What Happens When a Divorce is Sealed?

With Chantel Everett filing a motion to keep her The Family Chantel divorce from Pedro Jimeno sealed, many viewers may have questions as to what actually happens when a divorce is sealed.

Typically, someone can go online and search for divorce records. But, sealing a divorce keeps certain sensitive information private – like financial information, children involved, and more. In addition, things like birthdays and social security numbers are kept private as well.

According to Chantel Everett’s motion to seal the divorce, she said that these “threats” could cause “potential harm” to Pedro – both physically and financially. In addition, she went on to say that they should have their case play out without the “weight of public opinion”. And that they should be able to proceed “without fear of damage” to their brand, essentially.

The Family Chantel Celeb’s Last Act of Kindness Toward Estranged Husband?

Based on this latest motion filed by Chantel Everett to seal The Family Chantel divorce, it seems like it could be something of an olive branch from Chantel to move the process along in a civil manner.

Indeed, Chantel Everett taking this position is somewhat surprising given the things she accused Pedro Jimeno of since news of their pending divorce became public. Chantel cited “adultery” and “cruel treatment” from Pedro – along with “physical domestic violence” and “mental pain”.

Meanwhile, Chantel filing the motion to seal their divorce could be primarily for her benefit rather than a noble last act to help her husband – especially when you consider the allegations Chantel threw at the Dominican man above.

Certainly, it’s in Chantel’s interest as well to keep things as quiet as possible. So it could be she wants the divorce sealed more for herself than anyone else – and the fact that it would also help Pedro could be an unintended benefit rather than an act of kindness from Chantel, especially with everything going on currently between the soon-to-be ex-spouses.

Either way, sealed or not, that won’t stop The Family Chantel fans from grabbing the popcorn as the rest of this divorce drama unfolds.
