So, remember how it looked like Nicole had cheated on Azan again, slipping off her engagement ring to hang with a guy friend … and also lying about it?
At the time, Azan seemed to forgive her. But … suddenly, things looked bleak for the two.
Azan didn’t appear on the reunion special or even answer the phone when Nicole called him on the air. Are they over, officially?
Of all of the new 90 Day Fiance couples introduced this past season, Nicole and Azan were the least new.
In that they were not new at all, and had also been stars on Season 4.
This season, they had some of the same problems — worries about Nicole’s possible infidelities, concerns that Azan’s interview for his K-1 Visa won’t go well, and wondering if Azan could be the father that Nicole’s young daughter deserves.
(This time, in fact, Nicole brought her daughter to Morocco to see how the two bonded)
Throughout all of this, Nicole has also worked to convince her father that Azan is a worthy partner for her.
There’s been a lot on this couple’s plate, even before the revelation about Nicole’s dishonesty.
As we said, Azan said that he forgave her at the time for taking off her ring to spend time with a guy friend.
We don’t know why she had to remove her ring to hang out with him (even if she were looking to cheat … she’s literally on a TV show with the guy she wants to marry; it’s not a secret).
We don’t know why, if nothing happened, she felt the need to lie about it.
Regardless, though, Azan let it slide. He also got past her previous infidelity (to be fair, it was before she went to Morocco to meet him in the first place).
Or … did those instances weigh on him more than he initially let on?
During the 90 Day Fiance Tell All special, Nicole was accompanied by her mother but not by Azan.
You figure, okay … he hasn’t had his K-1 visa interview yet, so he’s still in Morocco and can’t come to the taping.
But you don’t need a visa to pick up a phone, now do you?
Azan basically ghosted Nicole through the Tell All, though TLC did tweet afterwards:
"Azan ended up calling Nicole back after filming concluded! #90DayFiance"
Even so, it seemed to many fans that Azan was just trying to avoid getting interviewed on the special.
(Because, seriously, how do you just "forget" that the special’s happening? You’d stay up to any hour to do your part … unless you don’t want to share some bad news)
However, it looks like Azan and Nicole are still together.
We don’t know for sure, but the two have been gushing about each other on social media as recently as November.
Though a lot can change in the space of one month, our guess is that we’ll be seeing Nicole and Azan together in the US in season 6.
Assuming, of course, that Azan was able to secure his K-1 visa.
It might be odd for one couple to get three consecutive seasons of 90 Day Fiance, but hey, a lot was uncertain. Plus, they want to get paid (Nicole works at Starbucks and, even as little as 90 Day Fiance stars get paid, every little bit helps) and they have an interesting story.
That’s why 90 Day Fiance; Before the 90 Days and 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? now exist.
If all goes well, they’ll get married at the end of their 90 days (and the end of season 6), then move on to 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?
But … let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Azan has to come to the US and they’ll need to tie the knot before any of that happens.
