Standing by his side. Reza Farahan is defending his Shahs of Sunset castmate Mike Shouhed — who split from his wife of eight months, Jessica Parido, amid claims that he cheated on her.

“Sending my boy good vibes to get through this difficult time, we all love and support you!” the reality star, 42, captioned an Instagram pic on Friday, Nov. 27, that shows Shouhed, 37, wearing a T-shirt with Farahan’s face on it. “Everybody makes mistakes, the true character of a person shows when you apply that knowledge moving forward! #shahs"

Earlier this week, Us Weekly confirmed that Parido, 26, filed for divorce from Shouhed after learning that he had been unfaithful to her.

“Two years ago, before they were married, Mike made a terrible mistake and cheated on Jessica,” his rep told Us. “She recently discovered a text message and he came completely clean to her. He feels so terrible. Jessica is the most amazing woman in the world.”

The rep also revealed that Shouhed pleaded with Parido to give him another chance — to no avail.

“He’s begged for her back on hands and knees,” the rep shared. “He’s offered his heartfelt apology to her. He loves Jessica and always will.”

Shouhed and Parido dated for almost five years before tying the knot this past March in L.A.

Season 5 of Shahs of Sunset airs this spring on Bravo.
