The producers of Married at First Sight have released their first comment about the order of protection and death threats that appear to have ended Ryan DeNino and Jessica Castro’s relationship.
When I first wrote about this, I asked Kinetic Content specific questions, and am still working to get answers on those specifics.
(I also asked A&E for comment but have yet to receive a response.)
For now, however, the company released this statement to me, which includes that producers have offered resources to the couples.
In lieu of recent allegations and rumors, Kinetic Content – the producers of Married At First Sight – would like to release the below statement:
“We don’t know all the details and can’t comment on the specifics. What we can say is that unfortunately, couples on the show can go through real divorces, and divorce can often be difficult.
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.”
