90 Day Fiancé's Shekinah and Sarper are back for another try at being together on the new season of The Other Way.

In the season premiere on Monday, July 1, Shekinah revealed she would be moving to Turkey for a second time to live with Sarper after returning to the United States three months prior. Now that the couple have spent time apart, Shekinah was worried about Sarper’s whereabouts because of his “f—boy” reputation.

“When I ask Sarper where he is or what he's doing, he gets so defensive, so upset,” she explained. “He’ll go as far as breaking up with me, and like, 10 minutes later he’s crying and saying that we can never be apart.”

Shekinah said she has concerns that Sarper — who calls her "my Barbie" — will never change given that he is in his 40s and has never been in a serious relationship. While he insists he is better at communicating “in person,” Shekinah remained skeptical. She even said she has been “doing a lot of hand-holding” to teach him how to be in a relationship.

“About a month before I moved to Turkey, Sarper told me that he had slept with over 2,500 women,” she revealed. “At the time I thought that it was a typo. I mean, 250 was still a lot to me, but I was willing to let it slide. But he actually responded saying it's between 2,500 and 3,000.”

Sarper insisted he has remained “110%” faithful to Shekinah, but told her she was too “possessive” over him.

“If I don’t text you back for a while, you are kind of a bitch,” he said over their video call.

Later in the episode, Sarper opened up about how he has changed and strayed away from his former reputation. He admitted that he used to have sex with “four-and-a-half women a day,” but said Shekinah is all he thinks about now.

“I understand she has trust issues — I have been with many women and I am the worst resume guy on the planet,” he admitted. “But I chang -

ed so much, so much, for her, but she still wants more.”

Sarper also said the rules Shekinah set for him has led to his financial situation becoming increasingly worse.

“Before Shekinah, I was doing financially good as a personal trainer,” he explained. “But Shekinah was so insistent about me leaving the female clients, and 90% of my clients are females. So from my income, 90% is cut right now.”

He added: “I have no savings left.”

Sarper had his own list of rules for Shekinah, too. One of them was that she can’t be part of the “L.A. scene” because he was worried she would be with other men. “Going out to events and stuff has been an issue for us, so I stopped doing it,” she said, adding that he has tried “breaking up with me a bunch of times.”

While talking to friends, Shekinah revealed that her typical day consists of working out before the two "have sex like, four times." One thing she does have planned for when she touches down in Turkey: a nose job.

“Sarper has actually designed a new nose for me,” she shared. “He says ‘I'll tell the doctor what to do, I know what you need,’ and I said, ‘I trust you,’ because I do.”

This caused concern from her friends, who said they think Shekinah is rushing into the relationship too quickly. “I think because she’s so in tune to that thought that he’s the one, that she goes with the flow because it makes it easier,” one friend told cameras.

“It’s just terrifying,” said the other.
