Jorge recently created an Instagram account and posted a photo that showed off his staggering physical transformation in his face and body.
Jorge, who began serving a 22-month prison sentence in September 2018 after pleading guilty to a felony charge of marijuana transportation, was wearing an orange jumpsuit and name tag in the photo while standing against a white brick wall.
“Hey everyone, so glad to be on Instagram now to be able to connect with you guys!” Jorge captioned the post.
“Praying for everyone that’s being affected by the Coronavirus. I know it’s a tough time for everyone right now. And we’re all going through it.”
“We just have to stay strong and positive and together we will get through it,” he added. “Stay healthy, stay safe out there. Can’t wait to be with you guys again soon!”
Jorge was admitted into prison weighing 275 pounds and standing 6’3″ tall, according to his prison record.
Jorge told TMZ he weighed 318 pounds at his heaviest and has dropped 128 pounds since entering prison, making him 190 pounds currently.
Jorge’s second post on Instagram on March 30 revealed his plans to go live on April 1 to say a few words and thank the people who have stayed by his side throughout his time in prison.
Anfisa, however, unfortunately wasn’t one of those people who stuck by him.
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 photo.
Jorge said that once he gets released from prison, which is supposed to happen in May 2020, he intends to file for divorce from Anfisa right away, TMZ reported.
Jorge reportedly claimed Anfisa had abandoned him and ran off with another guy while he was serving his time, 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 told the website 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 having “a lot of phone sex” during Jorge’s daily phone calls from prison, according to In Touch Weekly.
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.
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.
