Pitbulls & Parolees: What Happened Between Marcel Radlein And Mariah Torres?
Born into a family of dog rescuers, Mariah Torres grew up around pit bulls. She has been wholeheartedly helping her mother’s cause since her childhood. This very devotion of hers also brought her close to Maechel Radlein when he started at Villalobos as a volunteer. They rescued many abandoned dogs and puppies from dangerous situations, fell in love, and even got married in Vegas, sometime in 2016.
However, this union was not able to go the distance as they reportedly parted ways and even got divorced, in 2018.
Naturally, Mariah was bombed on social media with questions concerning the status of their relationship. So, while replying to some of those Instagram comments, she revealed that they divorced a few months into the marriage because they realized that they want different things in life.
