The first 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way break-up is quite the doozy. After talking divorce in the two-part reunion "Tell All," E! News learned Laura and Aladin called it quits. Aladin confirmed it on his Instagram. Then, Laura, appeared on the Bring Me Your Torch podcast to address what exactly happened between them in more detail.

At the "Tell All," Aladin said Laura has disrespectful to him. Laura said she was being ignored and was getting depressed.

"Aladin has always been a big controlling, but Aladin had a very big personality change when we went to Tunisia this summer for the three-day wedding," she said on the podcast. "A huge difference from his personality."

What viewers didn't see, she said, was that when they were in Africa, she didn't have anybody to speak to. She said she was sequestered off into a room and Aladin would leave for hours at a time to hang out with friends and get his haircut.

"It was killing me to sit in this dark room all day every day," she said.

After expressing her desire to go out and do something, she said Aladin never followed through, so she took matters into her own hands and went to a hotel pool by herself. That was a turning point in the relationship, she said, as was when she lost her pension. Once she lost her pension, she said she told Aladin that she could not sponsor him and bring him to Canada and that's "when I got to see the real Aladin. That's when he totally changed on me."

"It was only when some financial difficulty that this very different side of Aladin appeared and he wasn't a nice person. He wasn't the guy who I married. And I started to see his agenda for everything. It broke my heart. It broke my family's heart too. We were just really shocked," she said.

In fact, she said she has no home to return to, which is why she's in Ecuador with Evelin.

"I have lost a lot from this, a big part of this is my family," Laura said on the podcast. However, she's hopeful that with time, everything will heal between her and her kin.

"Sometimes things are a blessing in disguise," Laura said. "Although I was really hurt and devastated with my marriage ending, I was glad that I never made that 10-year commitment of being Aladin's sponsor."

After the "Tell All," Aladin answered questions on Instagram, including one about whether he was still with Laura. "No. Definitely not. But I wish her no harm and wish her good luck with her future men," he wrote.
