It looks like the proverbial mountain will come to Mohamed Jbali.
Unfortunately for him, by "mountain," we mean the folks at US Customs and Immigration Enforcement. In the video below, Mohamed says that they’ve opened an investigation into him after some very important forms that he sent in vanished in the mail.
Danielle Mullins must be feeling pretty chipper right about now. Mohamed … not so much.
So, like half of the stars of 90 Day Fiance, Mohamed Jbali is not originally from the United States.
He comes from Tunis, Tunisia — and he came to the US to marry Danielle Mullins.
If you’re wondering how well that worked out … they’re no longer married, and Danielle is suing Mohamed for money that she says that she spent on him.
But it’s pretty clear that, in addition to her desire to recoup lost finances, Danielle wants to punish Mohamed for only having sex with her once during their relationship — to consummate their marriage.
Mohamed’s refusal to have sex with Danielle was a huge point of contention for her. As was her belief that he was cheating on her.
In turn, Mohamed accused Danielle of misusing his money and identity, of having lied about her criminal background, and of having a foul body odor that he believed required a doctor’s attention.
It was, overall, a toxic relationship.
So much so that Danielle Mullins initially sought an annulment instead of a divorce, because she hoped that an annulment would neutralize Mohamed’s legal residency (effectively revoking his Green Card) and get him sent back to Tunisia.
That seems to clearly be more about spite than anything else.
So, despite being so over 90 Day Fiance and its various spinoffs, Mohamed Jbali still has a multitude of fans (and haters) who follow him on social media for updates on his life.
Recently, he asked fans for advise about his upcoming move to Texas. He’s been talking about that a lot on his Instagram videos, actually. He seems to be really excited about it.
Unfortunately, fate seems to have thrown a wrench into Mohamed’s plans, as he explains:
"Since I came to the States three years ago — over three years ago, I used the Post Office services for, like, maybe over 50 times."
That’s more times than I’ve used it in my adult life. Easily.
"Over, even, a lot — so many times. I never, ever used the insurance when I’m sending something."
That’s a foreboding way to begin a story.
"This time, I was trying to send an application to the Immigration so I can get the condition removed from my green card and get the ten-year green card. Guess what happened?"
We can guess.
"They lost the file! I never sent anything with the post office and got lost. This time, when I used the insurance — and this was an overnight mail — they lost my application. Now they’ve started an investigation."
In comments as he responded to fan feedback, he did mention that something similar had happened before related to his Green Card, so maybe his track record with the USPS isn’t so great.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the particulars of the K-1 visa process, basically Mohammed’s residency is conditional at the moment.
After two years, he needs to apply to make his Green Card no longer conditional, and his legal residency extended to 10 years.
(Seriously, folks — on top of all of the rigorous vetting that every immigrant experiences, they also have mountain after mountain of paperwork to go through)
Mohamed made a follow-up post, about how he had interacted with a post office manager.
It did not go well, and he reported that the manager became toxic.
(Mohamed himself isn’t always the friendliest guy, let’s be honest, so we’d be willing to believe that there were problems on both sides … but clearly this is a matter of considerable importance for Mohamed. His whole life hinges upon that one lost envelope, you know?)
Some fans and commenters suggested that perhaps this was a conspiracy against Mohamed on the part of some postal worker who recognized his fame and decided to sabotage his attempts to send in letters.
Mohamed said that he didn’t think so — which is pretty reasonable. He’s a reality star but he’s not, you know, that famous.
Hopefully he’ll be able to get things sorted out and go through with his move to Texas. It will be very interesting to see him start a new life in the Lone Star state.
If things don’t work out, well … we guess that Danielle Mullins will have gotten her wish.
In the video below, though, you can hear how distressed he is. You almost can’t help but feel for the guy.
