A mother-in-law has been labeled ‘disrespectful’ and a ‘red flag’ after her son’s ex-wife shared a video of her wearing white at their wedding — and then repeatedly hovering just inches behind them during the ceremony, apparently trying to steal the bride’s spot at the altar.
Paula explained that she didn’t even know her ex-husband’s mother was coming to the ceremony — which was supposed to be an elopement — and she was clearly displeased when the older woman arrived in a white shirt and pants and stood over her shoulder during the vows.

Paula shared the video taken at her wedding earlier this week and it has already earned over two million views.
She said that she and her ex-husband had planned their beachside nuptials to be an elopement, but when arrived she discovered that his mother was there, too.
He explained to her that he had ‘chickened out’ and told his mom about the wedding.
While the officiant spoke to the couple, Paula’s ex-mother-in-law can be seen over her left shoulder, standing close enough to touch her.
‘She was actually trying to take my spot,’ Paula wrote.
The mother-in-law is also wearing a white outfit — a major wedding no-no — and kept coming in so close to Paula that the minister had to ask her to ‘back up’ twice.
At one point, the older woman is seen standing directly behind Paula, her hands practically touching her back.
‘No respect or consideration,’ Paula wrote.

Oh no! But he ‘chickened out’ and invited his mother without telling her
Later, as the mother-in-law moved to Paula’s side to take photos, Paula wrote that she felt her like ‘the grim reaper on my back the whole ceremony.’
The older woman almost managed to encroach on Paula’s wedding night, too — which Paula also blames on her ex-husband.
‘My ex-husband was such a mama’s boy that the night of our wedding, he invited his mom to spend the night with us in our suite, because we had two bedrooms,’ she said.
‘So he very eagerly said, “Mom, why don’t you spend the night? We have two bedrooms.” And she very eagerly accepted! If it wasn’t for my father-in-law saying, “That is not appropriate,” I would have spent my wedding night with my mother-in-law.’
‘I’m so blessed that she’s my ex [mother-in-law] now,’ she added.
Paula — who also called the woman a ‘hemorrhoid right from the start’ — has shared other stories about her, including their awkward first meeting.

‘When she first met me, with a very disgusting look on her face, she said to me, “What are you?” And I was like, “What do you mean?” And she said, “Like, what nationality are you?”
‘So I told her, “Well, I’m Portuguese,” and she goes, “What is that?” And I said, “What?” And she’s like, “What do you guys eat?” So I said, “Food.” [She says], No, you know, we’re Italian, so we eat pasta, what do you eat?”
‘That was my interaction meeting her for the first time,’ she said.
TikTokers are horrified by the older woman’s actions in the wedding video and have shared their disgust in the comments.
‘There’s no way I would have stayed quiet. If me telling her to back up caused problems, it would have been over then,’ wrote one.
‘Honestly if my mother-in-law wears white to my wedding I will shit down the whole place,’ said another.
‘That’s some Freudian creepiness,’ wrote one more.
Several blamed Paula’s ex, with one writing: ‘And your spouse stood there and did nothing.”Why didn’t homeboy check his ma? Disrespectful,’ wrote another.
