Earlier this year, BLACK ENTERPRISE reported that one of the “Central Park Five,” Raymond Santana, filed divorce papers against Flavor of Love alum, Deelishis, after the two had been married for 20 months.
Santana spoke about his failed union with the reality TV star and went to social media to share his contributions to the community.
On Instagram, he said that Deelishis didn’t deserve nor did she love him, while he portrayed himself as a great husband and father to children that weren’t his.
“I GUESS I’M READY TO TELL MY STORY NOW…..”

TMZ reported that Santana filed the divorce papers in Georgia.
Deelishis also spoke about the relationship, “I married a narcissist who is a complete liar and a cheat and I’m finally ready to speak my truth… stay tuned. #GlovesOff,” via her Instagram account but deleted the post later.
Santana, a victim of the justice system when he and his four friends were wrongfully accused and convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park in 1989, also had something to say to his followers about his accomplishments in the community.
He seemed upset that people had reduced him “to just being married to a reality star” when he felt he had done so much more for the community. He proceeded to list his accolades.
“I fight against a system that is trying to lock our children up…they rather have them occupy a prison cell then a college dorm.
