Person of Interest in Model Murder Married Victim

8/18/2009 9:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've just learned Ryan Alexander Jenkins -- the "person of interest" in the murder of Jasmine Fiore -- married the victim earlier this year.



Jenkins was a contestant on "Megan Wants a Millionaire." The star, Megan Hauserman, told TMZ Jenkins met Fiore at a strip club in Las Vegas where she worked as a dancer. Megan says Jenkins married Fiore two days later.

We're told Jenkins -- who was a finalist on the show -- went right to Vegas after getting booted from the show and met Fiore.

We spoke with Megan by phone, who told us Jenkins was smart, nice and she is shocked by the turn of events.

UPDATE: 9:39 PM ET
We just spoke with Jenkins' publicist, who tells us, "Ryan is currently speaking to his attorney and will fully cooperate with the police in this matter. He is planning on meeting with them in the near future."

Someone who KNOWS    

HEY! I AM SURE THAT YOU BUZZARDS ARE FULLY AWARE AND EDUCATED ON THE CONCEPT OF LIBEL, RIGHT??? WELL, JASMINE FIORE WAS NOT, I REPEAT, WAS NOT A STRIPPER, A "DANCER", NOR IN ANY WAY WORKED IN THE SEX INDUSTRY!!! YOU IDIOTS BETTER GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT AND PRINT A RETRACTION IMMEDIATELY BEFORE SOMEONE WITH STANDING SUES YOUR LAME BUSINESS FOR DEFAMATION!!! BESIDES, THE MOTIVATION SHOULD BE ENOUGH THAT YOU'RE BESMIRCHING THE NAME OF A DEAD WOMAN WHO WAS A DAUGHTER, FRIEND, AND A HUMAN BEING!!! PRINT A RETRACTION NOW! (I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT BECAUSE WE HAVE KNOWN JASMINE SINCE SHE WAS 12, AND WE ARE UNEQUIVOCALLY POSITIVE SHE WAS NOT A STRIPPER OR ANYTHING OF THE LIKE.)

TMZ reported what Megan supposedly said. If you want to sue, sue Megan. Good grief.

I never could understand why people have to try to hurt someone instead of just getting a divorce. Violence, greed and pride are things that cause most of the crime.

I am    

Are any of the contestants or participants of these shows evaluated in any fashion? Do the production staffs conduct background checks of any sort? How can they ascertain just who or what they are dealing with? Or do the participants agree at the onset to bear all responsibility if negative outcomes occur? I think Mashedfaced Megan should hang up both her ratdog and her cheesey bikinis and find a new line of work. You were one suitcase away from a dumpster grave...but you, he'd have to dismember.

Megan sounds hot.
I'm sorry for all who are affected by this guy. Marrying in 2 days, with the obvious exception of being contacted by God to do it, can be considered a sign of nonsensical impulse behaviour. Agreeing to it also.

Again, I'm sorry about this gruesome death.

WOW!.

Vh1 is playing big brother, they just took Ryan Jenkins bio off of the show website, and they took down the online videos of the show.

What they probably going to do is edit it, so it appear like he was never a contestent on the show.

Talk about big brother Vh1.

That show sucks, she is so stupid she makes Michael Vick fans seem smart. These bozo's are a bunch of wanna be actors from the second agencies in LA. Millionaires lol. When presenting multi million dollar business plans to VC's you do not use the terms Yo or brag about being a male escort. They all suck!!!VH1 sucks!!!Play music or just go away.
