Joseline Hernandez Vindicated?
In court documents, Stevie claimed Joseline’s real name is Shenellica Juneann Bettencourt and her real age is 39 years old.
He also claimed that she’s legally married to another man.
However, blogger Tea Served Cold claims Shenellica Juneann Bettencourt is actually another person and apparently Joseline’s fake ID story from season one has been confirmed.
Tea Served Cold writes:
Stevie J may have gotten his information from the plethora of blogs who reported the story of Joseline’s upbringing.
According to those blogs, Joseline was born Shenellica Juneann Bettencourt on March 21, 1977 in Guyana and raised in Puerto Rico with her 5 siblings, whom she helped care for.
The man Joseline is allegedly married to is Matthew Louis Tremellen. The two wed on March 21, 1997 in Broward County, Florida. As of yet, there is no record of the marriage being annulled or ending in divorce. The marriage license lists Ft. Lauderdale, FL as the residence of Matthew Tremellen;
Court records also show the criminal history of both Matthew and Shenellica.
Blogs have already ran with this story and posted pictures of an African American man, alleging he’s Joseline’s real husband.
But the blogs overlooked one small detail when researching court records on the two…. Matthew Tremellen is WHITE.
The blogs allege Matthew got into some legal trouble after being indicted on drug charges in Tallahassee, FL. The Matthew pictured also lived in Tallahassee before moving to Ft. Lauderdale.
Those same court records from Broward County showing Shenellica’s criminal history also show the 39 year old woman identified as White (many South Americans identify as European) and lived in Bronx, NY.
The real Matthew L. Tremellen still lives in Ft. Lauderdale, with his Guyanese wife, Shelly Bettencourt-Tremellen:
Shelly, aka Shenellica Bettencourt, was born in 1977 (making her 39 years old). Her family is from Georgetown, Guyana, but Shelly was born in New York. She graduated in 1995 (again making her 39) from a Roman Catholic high school, Monsignor Scalan High in Bronx, NY before moving to Ft. Lauderdale.
She matches the description of the court records and the woman blogs are pegging to be Joseline.
Back in the day, Joseline Hernandez lived in Florida as a dancer at Diamond Cabaret strip club in Miami. She started dancing as an underage stripper by using a stolen ID, belonging to Shenellica Bettencourt.
