Luis Mendez Fires Back at Ex Molly Hopkins: She Used Me, Too!!
Luis Mendez’s 90 Day Fiance marriage may not have worked out, but the dude has remarried just months after his divorce.
Now, Luis is hitting back — saying that she was using him, too.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Luis Mendez fired back after his ex-wife claimed that he was just using her to get tot he United States.
“You know something?” Luis begins his statement.
You can tell from his phrasing that he is feeling a little hot under the collar about the accusation.
He says that it was Molly who was using him.
“[Molly] only took me here to get fame for her business,” Luis claims.
Molly has a lingerie business and has eagerly promoted it on social media during her time on 90 Day Fiance.
Luis claims that their marriage was never about him.
“She never wanted to give me the opportunity to get my papers,” Luis accuses.
Luis then repeats himself for emphasis: “Never.”
Interestingly, that is not the same thing as a denial that he just wanted to come to America.
Luis Mendez remarried in September, and made headlines this month when the world learned of it.
He has not revealed the name of his new bride, but has gushed about how in love he is with her.
His divorce from Molly was finalized on May 4 of this year.
Some may find it suspicious that he did not immediately defend himself by saying that he married Molly because he was “in love.”
Keep in mind that English is a second language for him, and also that his romance with Molly ended very poorly.
It’s understandable that feelings that she tried to sabotage his status in America would come to mind.
Molly spoke out about Luis’ marriage just one day earlier.
“I feel it clearly shows he was possibly using me and my finances to get here,” Molly accused.
She feels that this is obvious “because our divorce was final in May.”
“So he either already knew [his new wife] and had a plan all along and I’m a fool,” Molly suspects.
“Or we are both fools if she doesn’t know him,” Molly said.
Molly concluded: “Because I met Jeykll in the Dominican [Republic] and got Hyde here, or vice versa. Either way, may it work out because I’m glad he’s gone.”
(As we said at the time, Hyde is always the bad one)

It may be that Molly and Luis had true feelings for each other, once upon a time.
Then, when it didn’t work out, those feelings of affection turned to resentment and bitterness.
It is also possible that they were both using each other from the start.
Molly got a hot, younger husband and a measure of reality television fame to promote her business.
And Luis, well, he got to come to America.
It’s difficult to tell what went into their marriage to begin with.
Through the fog of anger that led to their divorce, it’s possible that even Molly and Luis themselves are no longer sure of how they used to feel.
It does seem safe to say that they’re both happy to be out of this toxic relationship.
Maybe Luis’ new marriage will work out better than his old one.
