MEchel Dekesian – Better Known FBoy Island Fans of the name “Mikey D” – made a strong impression during his three episodes of the show before he was cast out and revealed himself as “FBoy”. However, his ex-girlfriend was shocked that he appeared on the show even after she alerted several actors to the complaint she filed against him with the Manhattan attorney general last year.
Kimberly Noel — who asked The Daily Beast to withhold her full name — says that at first, Dakissian was “so charming, so sweet.” Publicity with a large number of Instagram followers, Noel first discovered Dakisian on TikTok. She reached out around the fall of 2020, she says, to recruit him as a potential client.
Dakisian wanted to go on a date first, Noel claims, but after four or five weeks of starting dating, he suggested they join forces. Things started off well, but Noel remembers that “Dakesian’s true colors eventually came out”. He allegedly demanded that they keep their relationship secret, but he also insisted that Noelle bring him to events for her high-profile clients. His main obsession was apparently the actors Jersey ShoreAnd the But his main goal, Noel asserts, was to get representation for reality TV.
“He kept pushing,” Noel told the Daily Beast. Saying, ‘You need to get me into a reality show.’ Like, demanding.
In the end, Noelle says his behavior became extreme enough to make her worry about her physical safety. The ADA filed charges of serious second-degree harassment last fall and Noel received a provisional protection order. (The Daily Beast reviewed a copy of the protection order, as well as Noel’s statement for the Manhattan Attorney General’s office.)
Shortly after Noel filed her complaint, she proactively reached out to three professionals who allegedly interviewed Dakisian for FBoy Island to alert them to her allegations. The dating show finds three single women on an island with about twenty men – half of them are “nice guys”, and the rest identify themselves as “FBoys”. With the players eliminated, they retired either as “Nice Guy Grotto” or “Limbro”, as they continue to appear throughout the season. Dekesian retired to Limbro after the first batch of episodes debuted in July, but has reappeared periodically throughout the season due to short gags. (Dakesian did not respond to requests for comment; HBO did not provide comment prior to publication.)
Noelle reached out to three casting actors she said he added on Instagram after they interviewed him on the show.
In screenshots Noel shared with The Daily Beast last October, she warned that Dakisian is a burden and “obsessed with fame and celebrity,” and that “every time I bring him to one of my celebrity clients, he makes them so uncomfortable I’ve been told not to bring him around.” .
Messages captured on the screen indicate that each of the recipients sent a brief thank you note; Someone said they would pass the information on to their team. Weeks later, Noel apparently sent each a copy of her statement to the ADA regarding the harassment allegations. A casting specialist said they moved on from FBoy Island But it will transmit information. Noelle says she hasn’t heard back.
Noel recalls securing several reality TV auditions for Dakisian and eventually getting him to work with a pre-owned company Jersey ShoreMike “The Situation” Sorrentino – as a brand ambassador for MTV star’s “Protrition” supplements, but that “was never enough.”
It is alleged that Daxian became frustrated when Sorrentino did not reach out to meet him. “Then move on to the next person,” Noel says. (Sorrentino representatives did not respond to the Daily Beast’s request for comment.)
After four or five months, Dakisian’s demands for exposure allegedly became aggressive. Noel remembers: “He would put his hands on me and say, ‘If you don’t do this, I’ll take you out and say you’re sexually harassing me.'” She and Dakisian allegedly separated in September 2021.
Weeks after the breakup, Dakisian allegedly attended a reservation from Noel’s famous clients and told security that he was her boyfriend. “He waited outside until I left and tried to get his hands on my body again,” she said. (The Daily Beast saw a report of the accident from last fall, after Noelle said she called the police from the site of that alleged altercation; he mentioned Dakesian’s name.) To the ADA, she said, the police refused to follow up on the incident since Dakissian had left the scene.
“He would put his hands on me and say, ‘If you don’t do this, I’ll take you out and say you’re sexually harassing me.“
After the personal confrontation, Noel says that Dakisian began making verbal threats against her on TikTok. At that point, the ADA brought charges of serious second-degree harassment.
In the statement reviewed by the Daily Beast, Noel cites a live broadcast in which Dakissian allegedly said he intended to “overthrow his former manager”. She said her statement did not refer to the physical altercation that took place weeks ago, because the police refused to follow up on the incident.
Noelle shared the Temporary Protective Order she received with The Daily Beast. The document runs until January 2023 and was presented as a condition for dismissing the case – meaning that as long as Dakesian obeys the order, Dakesian will receive what she considers a “slap on the wrist.”
And now, “Mikey D” has made his reality TV debut despite her claims.
Besides sharing her “side of the story,” Noel said she hopes her experience will help protect other women.
“I don’t want another girl to go through what I went through,” she says. “He’s been put on a full podium… I’m just so afraid for the other girls he’s interacting with right now.”
