From coming out as bisexual to pursuing a polyamorous relationship with her fiancé, Tarik Myers, here's what we know about Hazel Cagalitan
No matter what, the cast of '90 Day Fiancé' know how to keep things interesting. From relationship issues to financial woes, most couples have us asking — will they make it? And the answer is usually a mixed response with a some will and some won't'.
But what makes the show interesting is the fact that you can never entirely tell who is going to end up together in the long run. Hazel Cagalitan and Tarik Myers had us questioning their relationship right from the get-go. Ever since their first appearance on Season 2 of '90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 days', fans wondered if they'd be able to survive it all, seeing that the couple fought just before Myers could go to meet her in the Philippines.
Things just got worse from there, seeing that Myers ended up in Bangkok, where he met his ex-girlfriend, making Cagalitan so upset that she refused to pick him from the airport. It didn't help that when they did meet, she pointed out that he looked a rather different approach than his online persona.
All her doubts were cleared when Myers showed concern about her living conditions and wanted to take care of her. Now, seeing that Cagalitan is in the US, the couple hope to tie the knot soon enough. They still have plenty of drama in this season as well. To know more about where all this chaos stems from, here is everything you need to know about Hazel Cagalitan and Myers' ex-girlfriend.
She has a son
Cagalitan is the mother of an eight-year-old Harry. He lives with his father, as opposed to Cagalitan. In Season 2 of '90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days', Hazel opened up as to why she doesn't have custody of her child: "My son lived with me when he was three years old. I love him but I didn’t have enough money and so I give my son to his father".
While Myers seemed to understand her situation, his brother, Dean Hashim, was quick to take a shot at Cagalitan's character, saying that she didn't fight hard enough. Hashim's comment didn't sit well with his brother, it's where their relationship began to get rocky.
She met Myers online
Myers has an interest in Asia and its culture. He's traveled to Thailand multiple times and even knows the languages. Myers was on an international dating site where he met Cagalitan. The couple immediately clicked and began talking.
Myers and she were in a polyamorous relationship with another woman
Cagalitan came out as bisexual on the show — Myers and she were now considering a polyamorous relationship. They did have a girlfriend together before filming '90 Day Fiancé' Season 8. The couple was dating a woman named Minty from Thailand.
However, Cagalitan felt Myers was spending more time with her — Minty and Myers would often converse in Thai and this didn't sit well with Cagalitan. She insisted that they break up with Minty. The couple did, but Cagalitan soon found out that Myers was still in contact with her. Despite all this, the couple is looking for a new girlfriend.
