The mother of Jasmine Fiore’s ex-husband told RadarOnline.com that her son Michael Cardosi held out hopes of rekindling a romance with the stunning model before she was brutally murdered by another ex, Ryan Jenkins. The pair even saw one another days before she died.
Michael Cardosi – who was married to Fiore for three years – reunited with her on a Southern California beach while he was out on parole for a drugs-related crime. They were spotted being affectionate with one another but three days later she was dead.
“When Michael told me that Jasmine had died we just collapsed and fell into one another’s arms sobbing,” Winnie Humphreys told Radar Online.com. “He told me ‘Mom she was the love of my life – we were soul mates’. He was absolutely devastated.”
A former construction worker and bartender, Cardosi was recently put back in jail for violating his parole conditions and Humphreys was fearful for his health after Fiore’s passing. He was released from Riverside County Jail on Friday.
“Michael was terribly depressed when he went back into prison and I was really worried for him because he truly loved Jasmine,” she said. “They had known each other for eight years and had been through some good and bad times together but always stayed in touch even when Michael was sent to jail.”
The pair were married in 2003 and shared homes together in Santa Cruz and San Diego before getting divorced in 2006.
“They loved each other very much but the truth was Jasmine was capable of having multiple relationships. I liked Jasmine as a person but she and my son were too similar in a lot of ways. They both liked to party and have a good time and their relationship was very volatile at times.”
As late as last week, Cardosi was still hurting from the loss of Fiore: “I last spoke with him six days ago and he was still very depressed over what happened to his former wife. I’m worried that he may never get over her sudden and tragic loss.”
