Love After Lockup: Man tries to stop felon girlfriend drinking

- Advertisement -

A father-of-six is warning his felon girlfriend to curtail her drinking because he’s worried she will break the law and lose the $50,000 parole bond he posted for her.

Shawn, 45, from Las Vegas, Nevada, fell for his new love Destinie online when she was still in prison. Less than 24 hours after her release, he is raising concerns about her drinking after their first night together, but she just wants to have fun. 

In a preview clip from Friday night’s episode of the We TV reality series Love After Lockup, Shawn is sitting in bed with Destinie as he broaches the topic of her drinking, saying it made things ‘a little bit worse’ on their first day together.

It wasn’t until the day she got out of jail that Shawn admitted that he had been lying to her. Not only is he 10 years older than she is, but he also has more kids than she realized. 

Shawn awkwardly tries to say that she ‘overreacted’ to some things that happened, but she is not letting him off the hook. 

‘The lies you mean?’ she asks. 

He switches gears and brings the focus back to her drinking ahead of her upcoming court date. When he posted her bond, he was warned that she has skipped a court date before and was considered a flight risk. Now it seems that reality is finally sinking it.  

Red flag: Shawn says in his testimonial that he needs to 'be a lot more controlling' of her actions in the next 17 days leading up to her court date

No thanks: Destinie insists she isn't going to do anything to jeopardize her freedom now that she is out of prison, but she refuses to stop drinking

‘The only concerns I have about your drinking is you going out and doing something stupid, and, especially, before your court date,’ he says. 

‘I just need to make sure that you stay out of trouble and everything because of that bond, you know, ’cause $50,000 is a lot of money to have on the line.’

Destinie insists she isn’t going to do anything to jeopardize her freedom now that she is out of prison.   

‘I’m not ever going back, but if I want to drink sometimes, I’m going to drink,’ she says. ‘I want to have fun.’

Shawn says in his testimonial that he needs to ‘be a lot more controlling’ of her actions in the next 17 days leading up to her court date.   

Take that: 'I'm not ever going back [to prison], but if I want to drink sometimes, I'm going to drink,' she tells Shawn

Let me be: In her testimonial, Destinie points out that she had already told Shawn she is a 'party girl,' saying this is what she wants to do now that she is out of prison

‘I’m hoping that this would be the first time she doesn’t run and that she actually stands up for her responsibilities,’ he adds. ‘You know, if she missed court, that’d be almost a $100,000 I’ve spent on Destinie. That’s a lot of money.’

Destinie warns Shawn not to ‘suffocate’ her or try to ‘control’ her now that she is out of prison because it won’t work.   

‘We’re gonna go have fun. Like, we’re gonna be in Vegas like this,’ she tells him. ‘We’re not gonna be squares.’

In her testimonial, she gripes that they haven’t even been together for 24 hours, and he is already trying to tell her she can’t drink.   

‘I already had told him, like, I’m a f*****g party girl. This is what I want to do,’ she says. ‘Like, I want to have fun. I want to drink. It’s legal. Like, it’s very frustrating to me.’
