’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Charged with Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography
Former 90 Day Fiancé personality, Mike Eloshway, has been indicted on child pornography charges in the Northern District of Ohio.
According to court records, the 40-year-old “did knowingly receive and distribute … depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct” between February 2022 and March 2023. Federal prosecutors added that the former TLC star had possession of a “black HP desktop computer that contained child pornography” on May 9, 2023.
The indictment reveals that at least one discovered image involved a minor child under the age of 12.
Mike Eloshway will be in court for an arraignment hearing on Wednesday, June 28, at 10 am in Cleveland, Ohio.
Mike Eloshway was an original cast member on the popular reality series, appearing on its premiere season, in 2014. He starred alongside his now-wife, Aziza Eloshway, formerly Aziza Mazhidova. The couple connected on a language learning website when the Ohio native was 31 and she was 21 years old. Aziza applied for a K-1 visa after she was denied a work visa. The Uzbekistan native moved from Russia to the United States in 2013.
The duo tied the knot and in September, 2018, Aziza announced that the couple was expecting their first child together.
Aziza took to Instagram to share the happy news, captioning her announcement—“Mom and Dad.” Eloshway tweeted his own message, writing—“Coming 2019.” The pair welcomed their daughter, Olivia Joan, in January 2019.
Aziza announced Olivia’s arrival on Instagram alongside a photo of her husband holding their newborn daughter in his arms. She captioned the shot— “Guess who’s here Little Miss Olivia Joan.”
The couple’s current relationship status is unclear amid Eloshway’s legal trouble. They have not appeared on the long-running TLC series in almost a decade.
The pair seemingly spent Easter together as Aziza posted a photo of their 4-year-old daughter, crediting her husband as the photographer. Eloshway has since shut down his social media profiles and Aziza has set her own accounts to private.
