Luis Mendez


Luis Mendez Biography


Molly Hopkins was a 41-year-old living in Woodstock, GA, and Luis Mendez was a 26-year-old from the Dominican Republic when he arrived in America on a K-1 visa in 2017.

After originally appearing on Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance, Molly and Luis also returned for Season 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?.

Molly and Luis met when she was booked a trip to the Dominican with her girlfriends and he worked at a bar she visited.

According to Molly, it was love at first sight, and Luis immediately told Molly that he was going to marry her.

Luis proposed to Molly only about two months after they first met, and she accepted, certain he was the man for her.

Although the couple did not have a traditional wedding, they legally wed during the 90-day visa period and tied the knot on July 20, 2017.

Luis did not get along great with Molly's two children, and he even left her at one point, but the couple eventually reconciled.

However, the reconciliation didn't last long and Molly filed for divorce after only six months of marriage on January 9, 2018.

Luis then got remarried in September 2018 -- just five months after finalizing his divorce from Molly.

Molly did not take the news well.

"I totally got used. But it's all good. Luis got married to a Dominican lady in Jersey, best I can tell. I saw pictures, so yeah, he's married to someone else," she said in an Instagram Live video.

"He totally got married to someone who looks older than me from the Dominican."

Molly also suggested the new marriage had been Luis' "plan all along."

"I feel it clearly shows he was possibly using me and my finances to get here because our divorce was final in May," she told Us Weekly.

"So he either already knew her and had a plan all along and I'm a fool, or we are both fools if she doesn't know him, because I met Jekyll in the Dominican and got Hyde here, or vice versa. Either way, may it work out because I'm glad he's gone."

Luis then fired back and claimed Molly had actually used him.

"You know something? [Molly] only took me here to get fame for her business," he told Us Weekly. "She never wanted to give me the opportunity to get my papers. Never."

Molly continues to live in Georgia and makes regular appearances on TLC's 90 Day Fiance: Pillow Talk commentary show.

In addition, she filmed footage for 90 Day Fiance: Self-Quarantined, which premiered on TLC in April 2020.
