Who is Maja Radanovic? Portland resident from 'My 600-lb Life' sues TLC and Megalomedia for emotional abuse
Maja Radanovic first appeared on Season 7 of the show and returned for a stint on 'Where Are They Now?' after which she sued the network and Dr Now's son's production company Megalomedia.
Maja Radanovic from Season 7 of 'My 600-lb Life' returned to TLC to film a 'Where Are They Now?' episode and it not as disastrous as her first run on the show. Viewers can jog their memory about her first stint on the show in the first couple of minutes of the episodes and her fight with her abominable boyfriend Christian.
She had a huge fight with him in Dr Now's super tiny office after he refused to answer Dr Now's question about how he was supporting Maja's weight loss journey. He stormed out and later on sent a text to Maja that his mother had paid for his bus ticket back to Portland, leaving her to fend for herself in Texas alone. Maja had lost the weight Dr Now had asked her to lose in order to get approved for weight loss surgery but Christian's betrayal led her to food once again and her surgery was canceled.
What happened to Maja Radanovic on 'My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?'
Maja was not able to lose the weight that Dr Now asked her to lose but she was still given a shot at weight loss by the bariatric specialist. He tried to repair a hernia as well as gave her a gastric sleeve surgery from which she healed. However, Maja couldn't do much to control her cravings in recovery and decided to move back to Portland and stay with her mother and grandmother who could hold her accountable for her actions.
Is Maja Radanovic still dating Christian?
Maja seems to have moved ahead from her enabler boyfriend Christian. There's a new man in her life now and even though she's not tagged him in the pictures, it's very clear through the photos that they're romantically involved. You can access the photos on her Facebook as well on Instagram, her handle is @bpx3503
Why is Maja Radanovic suing TLC?
Maja Radanovic has lost a significant amount of weight since her appearance on the TLC show, her Facebook is proof of that. However, it wasn't a smooth experience for her and she alleged that the show pushes people "to the edge of an emotional cliff." The lawsuit is the third in line to claim negligence and outright lies on Megalomedia’s part. Before her, the late LB Bonner's (Season 6) family filed a case against the network and Megalomedia, owned by Dr Now's son Jonathan Nowzaradan. They alleged that the production assistant's behavior and comments didn't pick up signs that Bonner who committed suicide by putting a gun to his head in 2018, was in emotional distress.
Radanovic alleged that the company does not provide proper mental healthcare to the patients appearing on the show despite knowing that they are at risk for depression. Her suit also alleged that she was debt-ridden after Megalomedia didn't shell out money for her healthcare costs and also that she had to defend herself to bill collectors, adding to her issues.
'My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now' airs Wednesday at 8 pm ET on TLC.
