TikToker @ReesaTeesa went viral recently after she uploaded a 50-part video series on her account all about her psychopathic liar of an ex-husband. The numerous videos, most of which now have well over one million views, show the TikToker recounting one of the wildest stories the internet has ever heard. You need to get yourselves prepared for this one because I think we might have officially been introduced to the biggest manipulator out there.

What is the ‘Who TF Did I Marry’ series?

It all started with this introduction and disclaimer that Reesa posted six days ago, on 14 February 2024. In the video, the creator explained how she was beginning a series titled “Who TF Did I Marry” wherein she would tell the story of how she met, dated, married, and divorced a “real pathological liar.”

Naturally, netizens were immediately enthralled. Reesa promised to be completely truthful, and authentic, and while she did say she would omit names and be respectful, she hooked viewers by promising them a long-ass, detailed, and coherent storytime that she would be updating militantly—something us internet hoes just cannot resist.

I won’t run you through the entire series—mainly because I think you should take the time to go and support our heatless curler queen—however, I will give you some of the highlights.

Just to really emphasise how messy this man is once again, Reesa has repeatedly referred to him as “the United Nations of red flags.”

So, the pair allegedly met in March 2020 on a Facebook dating site and when they began speaking, the man in question, who has been nicknamed “Legion,” told Reesa that he had been transferred recently at his job and was now the regional manager at a condiments company.

He explained that both of his parents were now deceased and, after being cheated on in his previous relationship, he told Reesa that he was ready to seriously settle down with someone new. Legion also told Reesa that he had a large number of funds in an offshore account, money that he had made from Arena Football League (AFL).

Throughout these videos, it’s made abundantly clear that Legion lied to Reesa about his financial situation and, throughout their relationship, fumbled many attempts to buy a home together. Excuses began to build up as to why the house kept falling through.

Reesa ended up contacting Legion’s ex-wife, whom this man had claimed he’d had a daughter with. He had told Reesa that she had subsequently died. It turns out that this was a lie—the daughter had never existed.

Later on, we find out that through obtaining his social security number, Reesa was able to do a thorough background check on him and realise that he is a felon with a rap sheet that includes criminal trespassing and impersonation of an officer.

Also, in a really heartbreaking moment, Reesa revealed how she discovered that she was pregnant, only to later be told that the pregnancy had failed and she needed to take a pill to pass the foetus at home. The entire process was incredibly traumatic and her body reacted terribly to the pill.

Following this, Reesa found out that she would need to have a procedure to fully cancel the pregnancy. Despite having previously promised to take her to the hospital, Legion revealed that he was up for a promotion to become Vice President of the company (which, of course, wasn’t true) so he couldn’t take her…

Fast forward to after the procedure, when doctors informed Reesa that she only needed to be in recovery for an hour. However, Reesa was left waiting for Legion for almost four hours.

To make matters worse, we also find out that Legion fabricated every single phone call Reesa ever witnessed. Calls where he had pretended to be speaking with friends were all products of this crazy man’s deception.

The creator then managed to get ahold of Legion’s family and found out that they had all broken contact with him, stating that he had been a liar from childhood and could not be trusted.

Who is the man behind the ‘Who TF Did I Marry’ series?

So, I’m sure a lot of you are curious. Who exactly is this man? While Reesa didn’t reveal his real name in the videos, another user seemingly decided to take it upon themselves to investigate and find out the walking red flag’s identity.

TikTok user @danni_19 posted a video on 17 February revealing that she had officially found Legion.

According to Danni, several other users on the platform reached out to her in hopes she would expose Reesa’s ex. The creator obliged and shared that she’d been able to find his Facebook account, revealing the identity of Jerome JC Rome McCoy.

But wait, the plot thickens. An account under McCoy’s name has been responding to the videos, insisting that Reesa is lying and is simply bitter because he left her.

In certain videos, a man, who people believe to be McCoy, has even claimed that Reesa cheated on him with a man named Bradley…? Make it make sense, my guy.

Reesa has implored people not to engage with her ex-husband, however, you know what TikTok users are like—they have zero chill.
