Shaeeda Sween opens up to Yara Zaya about her marriage to Bilal Hazziez on the upcoming 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? tell-all special. Shaeeda infuriates Yara when she reveals that Bilal controls all of their finances and has ruled out getting a joint bank account.
Shaeeda explains the situation to Yara during a shopping trip in a released preview, sharing that she has had to ask Bilal for every financial necessity to get her business off the ground. The Trinidad and Tobago native was forced to shut down her yoga business when she decided to move to America and marry Bilal.
“He leaves me totally out of finances,” she tells Yara. “I don’t know how much money he makes.”
Shaeeda then reveals that Bilal rejected the idea of getting a joint account after their wedding. Yara calls Bilal’s position “crazy” and suspicious.
“This is pissing me off, you know why? You’re sharing the bed together, and like, what, he doesn’t trust you with his bank account?” Yara asks. “That’s really crazy to me. That’s a big thing to hide, you know? Like, when you’re hiding your bank account, you basically hide anything.”
Shaeeda confirms that she’s now worried because she has no idea what Bilal is doing with his money. Yara tells cameras that because Shaeeda is in the dark when it comes to finances, she would never know if her husband was buying plane tickets for other women.
“I’m realizing that I need to stand my ground and start speaking up for myself,” Shaeeda tells cameras. “So I’m looking forward to this tell-all.”

Fans know that Shaeeda and Bilal have not only clashed over money but also disagreed over whether or not to expand their family.
In an episode that aired in October, Shaeeda opened up about the marital standoff.
She said in a confessional spot—“It’s very clear that when it comes to babies, we are not seeing eye to eye. I’m getting older and I want to see a fertility specialist, but Bilal doesn’t understand why.”
Shaeeda acknowledged that Bilal had little interest in having a baby, during a call with her friend, Eutrice.
“Bilal is not interested in having kids right now,” the TLC star said. “He’s not comfortable with trying or looking at baby stuff. He just blanks out completely.”
“He should be taking your feelings into consideration as a priority, considering the fact you left your country to come there to be with him,” Eutrice replied.
Shaeeda explained that she was in the middle of a “tricky situation,” due to her age. A clause in the couple’s prenuptial agreement required Bilal, 42, to cooperate in conceiving a child by her 40th birthday.
She later explained in a personal interview—”I get that Bilal doesn’t want to talk about it. But I’m getting older, and I don’t have much time left. The prenup says that we have to try to have a baby by the time I am 40. If he violates the contract, I might have to take him to court. I wanted a traditional marriage. He decided to get on contractual on me, so, this is the price of contracts. You pay.”
Part one of the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? tell-all airs on Sunday at 8 pm ET on TLC
