Some of the couples in Love After Lockup seem to work better while one partner is still in jail. Because Derek is now free to do what he wants, Monique might never trust him again. In an exclusive clip that Distractify got before the February 10 episode of Love After Lockup, Monique is so worried that she puts up security cameras.
It seems like a lot for a girlfriend to do, even if she really loves her guy. But they haven’t been able to trust each other since Derek got out of prison after nine years. He’s been going out with Monique for more than two years, but this is the first time they’ve met in person.
Now, before Monique goes to Chicago to get her things and moves in with Derek in Cleveland, she wants to set up some hidden cameras to make sure he is good while she is gone. At first glance, it doesn’t look like the best start to a long life together, which is what they both wanted.
Is Derek still with Monique?
Yes, she and Derek are very happy together. Monique is getting more attention now that a new season has begun. When Derek met Monique for the first time, he fell in love with her and wanted to get serious. After two years, they are still together. The Love After Lockup actor answered vlogger Funky Dineva’s questionable post about whether Derek’s feelings for Monique were real or fake. Groovy Dineva told her that she doesn’t have any reason to think that he likes her. Monique wrote a message right away in response to the criticism, which she later put on her Facebook page.
As far as anyone can tell, Monique and Derek are still together and happy. A few days after calling out the body shamers, Monique did an Instagram Live with Derek. “One of us makes the other better. “When we’re together, we bring out the best in each other,” Derek said. Everyone who doubted Derek and Monique’s love after seeing them perform live was shown to be wrong.
In the exclusive clip, Monique and Derek go to see Derek’s grandmother. Monique looks for places to hide security cameras in Derek’s bedroom, where he will be sleeping alone while she is in Chicago.
The goal is for her to get her things and go back to Cleveland so that they can live together for the rest of their lives. Still, she isn’t sure that her boyfriend will be good while she is away.
Monique tells producers, “I’d like to see if I can find good places to put the cameras so I can keep an eye on him when I’m at home in Chicago.”
The video then cuts to Derek telling one of his family members that Monique was “strong” throughout their relationship while he was in jail. He doesn’t know that their relationship might not be as strong as he thinks.
Why Doesn’t Monique Trust Derek On ‘Love After Lockup’?
Soon after Derek got out of jail, a strange car was following them down the road. Derek said he didn’t know the driver, but he thinks it was an ex. On Love After Lockup, Monique said the same thing.
Now that he’s out of jail, Derek wants to talk to his ex-girlfriend at some point. Monique thinks it’s unlikely that he would be brave enough to bring someone back to his grandmother’s house, but she worries that he will.
All of this doesn’t look good for their future together. They are, however, set to appear in the Life After Lockup season of 2023. So, even though there have been problems with adultery and trust, it’s safe to say that Monique and Derek will stay together.
