Michael was born in 1964 in Los Angeles, California. He had several mental issues growing up.

They dated and went out for two weeks and got married right after that.
Her family and friends criticized Jana for marrying a man who was seventeen years elder than her.
However, she was in love with him, so she tied the knot without thinking twice. They got married in the year 2004.
Michael's Abusive Behavior
Jana stated that Michael was soft-spoken, gentleman, and protective of her at the beginning.
She mentioned that he took good care of her during the first few weeks of their marriage and dating.
After that, Michael changed his color like a chameleon and started abusing her.
His abusive behavior started with small arguments to frightening lengths. He constantly used to beat her.
She was always forced to sleep in the car and hid behind the bushes.
He used to beat her most of the nights and act like nothing happened the next morning.
She also mentioned that he used to come home drunk every night. She mentioned that he used to come home at 3 am and push her out of bed.
He had a mental problem which resulted in his unstable behavior and mood changes.
Unhealthy Marriage and Divorce:
After the abusive and aggressive behavior of Michael, Jana was not able to save her marriage.
She filed a divorce. She was not ready to file a divorce at the beginning.
The reason for her being so skeptical was because of her friends and family.
She thought that her friends and family would make a fool out of her for marrying a drunkard and horrible person. She used to hide her wounds and bruises with makeup.
In the year 2004, Michael choked her. She was unconscious and nearly bled to death.
This incident triggered her the most. After tolerating the severe abuse for a long time, she finally decided to file a divorce and file a police case for domestic abuse.
