Rich Piana and Sara Piana married sometime in 2015, however by November 2016, the couple was already divorced. Rich accused Sara of marrying him mainly because she wanted to get United States green card. He also accused her of stealing from him and subsequently, their marriage was annulled.

On August 11, 2017, tragedy struck Rich. He collapsed and hit his head while having Jansen do his haircut. When paramedics arrived at his home, they reportedly found white powder and an inhaling tube.
