Just six months after saying “I do” on season 2 of Married at First Sight, Jessica Castro has pulled the plug on her relationship with Ryan De Nino.
As Life & Style previously reported, Jessica got a restraining order against him — and now new details about the split are horrifying.
In a petition filed in Queens Family Court obtained by the New York Post, Jessica, 30, claims her husband became very violent, threatening her and her family back in March.

“I will break you into f--king pieces,” he’s quoted as saying in the document. “I will break your dad into pieces. I will make your whole family disappear — and your f--king dog-ass sister’s boyfriend.”
It gets worse from there. During filming for a Married at First Sight reunion earlier this month, Ryan, 29, allegedly confirmed his violent ways.
“She's f--king dead. When I get back to Brooklyn, she's f--king dead, this girl," he allegedly said while wearing a live mic.
According to the report, producers took his statement seriously and instantly provided Jessica with a security team.
Though reports of their breakup are just surfacing, Jessica claims — in the court documents — they ended the relationship in February after she caught him cheating on her on Valentine's Day.
The Staten Island business owner faces charges of harassment, menacing and stalking. He’s been ordered to stay away from Jessica until his July 13 court hearing.
Jessica’s lawyer, celebrity divorce lawyer Marc Rapaport, declined to comment on the situation, but said his client is “considering all her legal options including potential claims against A&#.”
In a statement to Us Weekly, a spokesperson for the show’s producers, Kinetic Content, said, "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."
