Geoff Hamanishi, who gained fame through his Instagram account @the93044 where he was seemingly the epitome of the supportive and loyal boyfriend, sparked online controversy and was called out for cheating on his girlfriend, Kassandra.
Idgaf what anyone says lmao. Cheating is cheating regardless! Doesn’t fuckin matter what y’all did and didn’t do. Cheating is having mental, physical and sexual intimacy with someone other than your own significant other. #ExposeCheaters2019#FuckGeoff#the93044
Kassandra posted a message on her Instagram story regarding the situation:
“My life basically got turned upside down and of course social media was here to capture it all,” she wrote. “I obviously don’t need to go into the details that I’m sure you all may know by now. Just know I was hurt and betrayed by someone I was with for almost 8 years, and it somehow got the social media coverage that it most certainly did not need (and did not make it any easier). Not only were you all fooled, but guess what? I was too. As some of you may know I’m private as f***. I never felt the need to flaunt and show/explain any aspects of my life. So seeing the most private heart-wrenching event of my life go public sucked esp when I didn’t have the #1 person (at the time) by my side. I have just about the best group of close friends and family i could ever ask for reminding me of my worth (ty loved ones). I’m strong enough to know I have no fault in this, nonetheless it still hurts. Thanks for many of your undying support. I’ve always been an independent and self reliant person before this and I know I will continue to be one.”
“I’m not making this video to ask for pity, or ask for forgiveness,” Hamanishi said in one of three short videos he posted on Instagram. “I don’t deserve any of those things. I just want to make this video to come clean and apologize to everybody — everybody that I hurt, everybody that I’ve disappointed. I know a lot of you guys looked up to us and I let you guys down, all of you. I cheated on my girlfriend. I messaged other girls behind her back.”
“Sorry to everybody. Sorry to my girlfriend. I messed up. I took her for granted,” he continued. “Lastly, I just want to say, if you’re in my position right now, or you have the chance to be in my position, don’t f***ing do it. It’s not worth it. It’s never worth it. You don’t want to know what it’s like to look her in the eyes and know that when she’s looking back at you, you’re not even the same person she fell in love with.”
