90 Day Fiance star Jorge Nava says his dramatic 128-pound weight loss definitely contributed to his breakup with Anfisa Arkhipchenko, whom he plans to divorce following his prison release in May.

Jorge, who confirmed he and his wife are "not together," revealed in an interview conducted by his lawyer Brad Rideout that his physical transformation essentially ruined his marriage, according to In Touch Weekly.

"I think she was just jealous of the attention that I was getting," Jorge, 31, told the magazine. "The news about my weight loss didn't sit with her very well."

Jorge began serving a 22-month prison sentence in September 2018 after pleading guilty to a felony charge of marijuana transportation, and photos of Jorge with a slimmer physique surfaced online in November 2019.

"I believe [that led to our breakup] because at that very moment in time, that's when she blocked my phone calls and I kind of was starting to lose contact with her," Jorge explained.

"She did tell me like right off the bat, like the day after, that she didn't want anything to do with me and that it was over."

Jorge -- who weighed 318 pounds at his heaviest, TMZ reported -- was admitted into prison weighing 275 pounds and standing 6'3" tall, according to his prison record. He reportedly now weighs 190 pounds.

On March 21, Jorge posed for a full-body photo in an orange jumpsuit showing off his staggering weight loss, and he recently created an Instagram account to share updates and progress with fans.

"It was actually intentional. It sorta just happened naturally," Jorge recently told In Touch of his weight-loss journey.

"After I started dropping the weight, it almost became like an addiction, losing [weight] and feeling healthy."

Anfisa apparently entered a new relationship with a man named Leo Assaf while Jorge was behind bars, and the pair recently went Instagram official when Anfisa posted a photo of Leo embracing her.

"Quarantine and chill?" Anfisa captioned the March 18 photo.

Jorge claimed Anfisa had abandoned him and ran off with another guy while he was serving his time, TMZ reported, which appears to be true based on Anfisa's recent social-media activity.

Not only did Anfisa post an intimate photo with Leo, but the couple have gushed about each other in the comments section of several of her posts.

Leo, for instance, wrote last month that he's Anfisa's "biggest fan" and she's his "queen," and Anfisa responded to one of his messages by writing, "[Love] you," along with a heart-eyes emoticon.

Jorge therefore said he has every intention of legally ending his marriage to Anfisa once he gets his freedom back.

Jorge told In Touch that he wishes "[Leo] the best with his new relationship."

"I know about him," Jorge added, "[but] I don't know what he looks like, and I don't really care what he looks like."

Jorge told TMZ that he and Anfisa tried to maintain a relationship and keep their marriage intact for a while.

In December 2018, Anfisa opened up about how she and her husband were reportedly having "a lot of phone sex" during Jorge's daily phone calls from prison.

And Anfisa clapped back at haters who questioned whether her marriage was surviving.

"So done," Anfisa reportedly snapped at a follower who noticed she wasn't wearing a wedding ring in one of her photos. "Whoever asks it again is getting their car keyed."

And in November 2019, Jorge told E! News his marriage to Anfisa was doing "really well" and he had transformed into a better man physically, mentally and emotionally.

But Anfisa previously told In Touch her relationship was struggling even before Jorge began his sentence.

"Jorge and I were on the verge of divorce before he went to prison but once it happened, I wanted to put our issues aside and stay by his side and support him in this difficult situation," Anfisa said.

"However, the whole time I felt like I had a weight on my shoulders that wouldn't let me be happy. I knew I had to end it and it would be better for the both of us, so Jorge and I talked about it and mutually decided to part ways a few months ago and agreed to divorce once he's released."

Jorge was a 27-year-old from Riverside, CA and Anfisa was a 20-year-old from Moscow, Russia when Anfisa arrived in America on a K-1 visa to be with her love.

Anfisa didn't exactly deny she was in the relationship for Jorge's money, but she believed he, in turn, was dating her primarily for her looks. Regardless, the pair got married in a simple courthouse ceremony.

Jorge was arrested at age 28 in February 2018 with nearly 300 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his car.

Jorge previously said he believes his prior criminal record -- which includes two previous convictions for cultivation of marijuana -- is why he didn't receive a lighter sentence to begin with.

"With the charges against me, I was looking at around 24 years or something like that. [It was] some ridiculous number," he told TMZ in 2018.

"But luckily, my lawyer was able to work out a plea agreement and I got the charges dropped and I ended up pleading to a class 4 felony in Arizona."

Recreational marijuana (especially 300 pounds of it) is still not legal in Arizona.

After originally appearing on Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance, Jorge and Anfisa -- who met on Facebook -- were also part of the cast of Seasons 2 and 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?.

Jorge and Anfisa, however, confirmed in October 2018 they wouldn't be returning to 90 Day Fiance.

Anfisa dedicated her time to fitness while Jorge spent his time in prison, and she has since become a competitive bodybuilder. 

"To fill the void that I felt after Jorge was sentenced and I was left on my own I decided to try to stay busy and do what I enjoy the most and it was working out," Anfisa previously said on Instagram.
