He rode off into the sunset — without her.
An Australian woman claims her American ex-husband ghosted her one day after securing an Australian partner visa.
Isabelle Glastonbury, 31, said she met the unidentified Texan in Dallas in 2015 and got engaged one year later, relocating to the land down under in 2018.
They cemented their union in a dream wedding in Palm Beach to the tune of $50,000, which her family reportedly covered.
But their honeymoon was short-lived — he allegedly skedaddled in January 2021 after receiving his visa, which Glastonbury’s parents reportedly paid $10,000 to obtain.
“I got home and literally 90% of his stuff had disappeared,” Glastonbury told Daily Mail Australia in a story published Friday. “I had this sinking feeling.”
She recalled trying to log onto his immigration accounts, but she was locked out, her credit cards were drained, and her number was blocked. The crestfallen bride said none of her calls or messages went through.
“He ghosted everyone — all of our mutual friends, the best man from our wedding and his own family, no-one knew where he was,” she said.
Upon reflection, she realized he had become “distant and started disappearing at night,” despite proposing relocating to Queensland and starting a family together.
“I felt like I was married to a complete stranger,” she explained, adding, “I don’t know what his plan was, none of it made sense.”
“He was my best friend, my ride or die,” she continued. “He fooled everyone, including me.”
She insists the Department of Immigration and Border Protection did not help her cause.
“So many people reported him to immigration and nothing happened,” she claimed.
Glastonbury said she has not spoken with her ex since an encounter in February 2021, when he allegedly said he “had to be single.”
“I think we got married, he got over it and was too chickens-–t to say anything to my face, but just wanted to stay in Australia,” she mused.
She said a friend recently informed her that her ex had remarried “almost a year to the day we officially divorced.”
Glastonbury, meanwhile, has since moved on with her high school sweetheart, Max, with whom she welcomed 3-month-old son Mason.
Now that she’s “in a good place,” she’s sharing her story to warn others who have turned a blind eye to their spouse’s suspicious behavior.
“Don’t be blind, because I’m sure I could have seen the signs before this happened and I just ignored it, you never really know who you’re sleeping next to,” she advised.
