Henry, a 35-year-old clinical recruiter from Arabi, LA, and Christina, a 30-year-old flight attendant from Houma, LA, were matched by Married at First Sight experts Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Dr. Viviana Coles and Pastor Calvin Roberson to wed on Season 11 of the Lifetime reality series.
On Day 76 of marriage, the Married at First Sight's eleventh-season couples' 43rd day of lockdown in New Orleans amid the coronavirus pandemic, Henry said Christina kept imploring that there was a specific reason why things weren't working out between them.
On the October 14 episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Henry watched back a Season 11 clip in which he explained the situation to a Diary Cam.
"I was very confused, like, if you think I cheated on you or you think I'm dating somebody else, I'm absolutely not doing that at all, one thousand percent," Henry recalled telling Christina in the clip.
"And so eventually, she told me that a 'reliable source' texted her, a male, that he and I were allegedly sleeping together and that I was gay."
On Unfiltered, Henry revealed, "To this day, I have still not seen the text, and I've asked to see it multiple times. I just think it's kind of gross."

Henry continued, "I'm not exaggerating, I probably listed 20 things, and I said, 'That's absolutely not true. First of all, I'm not gay, and second of all, I haven't had an affair with anybody.' It looked like her soul left her body."
Henry, sticking with his story that Christina was lying about the text, claimed Christina was seemingly desperate for answers about their relationship.
"I think she was struggling to understand up to that point why I wasn't attracted to her or showing her any affection," Henry said.
"I think she just threw, like, one last desperate Hail Mary -- and unfortunately nobody caught it."
"I think it's putting a lot of accusations on Henry and talking about his character and who he is, and if Henry was gay, Henry would be gay and happy about it and not go on Married at First Sight to marry a woman," Olivia shared.
"So I just feel like it's a big accusation to hold over somebody's head."
After Jamie agreed the accusation was "very shocking," Karen added, "That crosses a huge boundary."
"Also, it's not true!" Jamie noted.
"Yeah," Karen said, nodding her head.
"That's a huge accusation to make about somebody," Olivia said.
"She admits, she was like, 'I was in a five-year toxic relationship where we did crazy things to one another. I saw those red flags early on, and here it is!" Henry explained.
Jamie found that "really concerning," and Henry concluded with, "All I'll say is it's one thing after another and at this point, I really just need to take it a day at a time."
When Christina first confronted Henry about the alleged text message from a man supposedly claiming to have been intimate with Henry, Henry insisted on Married at First Sight's eleventh season it was "absolutely" not true and Christina had refused to show him the alleged text.
"I asked to see the text... I don't know if she's making it up. I don't know if she really received a text. I have no idea," Henry said in a recent episode.
Christina padded the accusation by mentioning how Henry left all the time and was rarely home, and Henry said he admitted to his wife he sometimes "took the long road back" home after shopping at the grocery store, for example, because the dynamic between them was just awkward.
"But that doesn't mean I'm having any type of relationship with somebody else," Henry said on the show.
"I sure as hell would not marry somebody -- a female -- that I don't know on television if I were gay. That's not how I would handle that situation. It makes no sense to me. But I'll find out more about that later and see whether she's completely making it up or to see if she really did get a text."
Henry later determined Christina had basically sought revenge for Henry calling her "dishonest" and she was trying to "save face."
Henry shared with Woody Randall on Season 11 how his relationship with Christina had been rocky and Christina finished up their relationship with "a f-cking grand slam" that "spoke volumes" about her as a person.
Henry, however, still agreed to go on a couples' retreat with Christina and the rest of the cast. While Henry and Christina appeared to get along at the retreat, tension still lingered and the pair failed to restore a healthy and happy connection.
