    Talking about the first time she met him, she said,

    “When Billy and I met, it was destiny. It was love. I don’t know how to explain it. I never had this kind of connection, but he drew my connection just with my energy.”

    Initially, she had no clue about who her boyfriend actually was. As in, she wasn’t aware that he was linked with the chaos of Fyre Fest. It was only after she “Googled him” that she got to know his true essence.

    Furthermore, when she asked him about the whole thing, McFarland was very patient and made her understand the whole situation. Hence, looking at it from his point of view actually helped her to stick with him.

    Anastasia Stood By Billy’s Side Through The Time He Spent In Jail

    Since their relationship only began after Billy was convicted, it was hard; especially for Anastasia. A video of her crying uncontrollably when he went to prison was also viral back in the day. It showed how much in love she was.

    Regardless, she did not give up and vowed to stand by him through the rough times. Additionally, the couple exchanged letters throughout the time he was in prison. Eremenko even shared some of the notes in the documentary.

    From learning about his complaints regarding showering in the sink to obsessing over his doodle of “Billy loves Anastasia” – she fought through the time he was serving his sentence.

    Unlike Her Boyfriend, Eremenko Is Well Read And A Successful Model

    Eremenko is a Russian native born in Rostov-on-Don in 1990. When she was 17, her family moved to the United States and settled down in Delaware. She is a well-educated girl, holding an MBA degree from Goldey-Beacom College.

    Soon after her college graduation, Billy’s girlfriend dived right into modeling. In 2012, she was signed with Silent Models. To this very day, she continues to work with them.

    Moreover, she is recognized worldwide for her appearance on the cover of Elle Bulgaria. Additionally, she has also worked with top-notch brands like Guess and Balmain. Needless to say, she is set to become one of the greatest supermodels in all of America.

    The Odd Couple Is Still Presumed To Be Together

    Despite McFarland spending half the time in prison in his relationship with the model, the pair is still together. Through back-and-forth letter exchanges, Eremenko and Billy stuck through the tough times. They are currently enjoying their 7th year of being together.

    Furthermore, as he was released in March 2022, the duo has been laying low. They have not posted about each other for a long time too. Perhaps, they want to keep their personal business to themselves.

    Rest assured, they’re still dating quietly. The lovers even secretly slipped on a romantic getaway to the Hamptons as soon as Billy got out on bail.

    Is He Scamming His Girlfriend Too?

    Meanwhile, there are a few people concerned about Anastasia. And, why wouldn’t they be? After all, she is head over heels in love with a con artist like Billy McFarland. But, she has accepted him for who he is. Thus, there’s no going back now! She’s with him for the highs as well as the lows.

    Will The Con Artist, Billy Marry Eremenko?

    As far as the media portals reported, Billy and Anastasia do not have plans to marry just yet. They haven’t even spent enough time with each other (in person) because of the whole Fyre Festival debacle. We can guess that, upon his release, they are trying to fix that.

    Taking this into consideration, it might take a few more years for them to tie the knot. On the other hand, worst-case scenario, they might even break up before they reach that decision.
