Eric and Leida Rosenbrook, who are currently enjoying a controversial run on Season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé, are officially leaving the series over death threats. The couple announced their surprise exit on social media this week and vowed to never return to the set of another reality TV show ever again.
“We put our lives in danger. We put our lives on the frontline. This is not fair,” Leida shared in an emotional video. “This is not worth it all. We are never going to do this again.”
The pair claims they had no idea that producers were going to make them look bad on the show. According to Us Magazine, they also slammed the network for not doing anything about the death threats.
In the clip, which has since been deleted, the couple assured fans that they will release more information once their contract with TLC is up. The Baraboo, Wisconsin couple called the police after they received the death threats. The official reports were filed in November.
Eric and Leida’s exit has been met with mixed reviews on social media. Some fans have supported their decision to leave the show while others believe the threats should not be taken seriously.
The two likely received warnings because of their controversial behavior on 90 Day Fiancé.
Leida made headlines after she tried to kick her 19-year-old stepdaughter, Tasha, out of Eric’s home. She then told Eric that he needs to focus on their relationship instead of trying to work things out with his daughter.
Leida also caused a stir over comments she made about Eric’s younger daughter, Jennica.
Tasha revealed that Leida makes Jennica take a shower every time she comes home because she wants her to clean her “mother off.”

To make things even worse, Eric defended Leida’s behavior and assured fans that the quote sounded back because it was taken out of context.
TLC has not commented on Eric and Leida Rosenbrook’s decision to leave the show.
New episodes of 90 Day Fiancé air Sunday nights on TLC.
