Shahs Of Sunset Star Jessica Parido Files For Divorce From Mike Shouhed!

Mike Shouhed & Jessica Parido

I’m sure no one – like no one at all – is surprised to hear that after 8 months of wedded bliss distress Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido are divorcing. Who didn’t believe their love was solid and based on such a deep level of shared goals, commitment, and mutual respect?

Last week Jessica filed for divorce from the Shahs Of Sunset star citing irreconcilable differences, but obviously the real reason was Mike cheating on Jessica!


Court documents reveal that the couple has been separated since August 1st – which is around the time Jessica found “endless texts” from various women Mike was cheating with. 

 “There were graphic text messages about sex and his penis size. It was disgusting,” Jessica describes. “When I confronted him, he denied it and tried to make me feel like I was crazy, all the while erasing the messages off iCloud.”

After “barely six months of marriageJessica decided had enough and moved out! “Now divorce is my only option,” she states. “I need to start putting my life back together.”

Mike and Jessica’s marriage was beset by rumors of infidelity and drama from the start. His Shahs Of Sunset co-stars even threatened to boycott his wedding! At the reunion Jessica was forced to vehemently defend her marriage over allegations that Mike attempted to have sex with co-star GG Gharachedaghi, then tried to sleep with GG’s sister the night he proposed to Jessica! Amid the controversy, Jessica even dropped Mike’s last name from her Instagram profile – a sure sign of trouble in the Land Of Famewhoria!

However, the drama seemed behind them when the couple jetted off to Europe for a luxury Honeymoon in July, but according to Jessica’s divorce filing she and Mike separated on August 1st! 

Jessica even converted to Judaism for Mike

“I can’t believe I was so naive,” Jessica admits to In Touch Weekly.  “I really thought I knew him — we were together for five years before we wed.” Jessica also acknowledges that in her quest for fame she ignored numerous texts, emails, and other sings warning her that Mike would be unfaithful. 

Mike’s rep tells a different story – he claims Jessica is overreacting to old text messages. “Two years ago, before they were married, Mike made a terrible mistake and cheated on Jessica. She recently discovered a text message and he came completely clean to her. He feels so terrible. Jessica is the most amazing woman in the world.”

Mike is remorseful. He wants me back,” Jessica confirms. But she assures, “that will never happen.”

“He’s begged for her back on hands and knees,” Mike’s rep tells E! News. “He’s offered his heartfelt apology to her. He loves Jessica and always will.” 

Mike’s rep also confirms we’ll be seeing his marital issues with Jessica play out on the upcoming season of Shahs Of Sunset. But of course! “Their struggle will be chronicled on the show’s upcoming fifth season, which will air this spring.” 

Mike started dating Jessica on Shahs. Their proposal and wedding was also featured on the show, which coincided with Jessica’s ever-morphing face and body. I guess it’s only right that we see their unhappiness unfold as well.
