“90 Day Fiance” Star Nicole Nafziger Attempts to Explain to Critics Why She’s Still in Morocco with Fiance Azan Tefou & Hasn’t Returned Home to Her Daughter

“Thanks again, mom! I’ll be sure to bring you back a really snazzy T-shirt and souvenir keychain or two!”

Nearly four months after Nicole Nafziger left the U.S. during a global pandemic to visit her fiancé Azan Tefou in Morocco, the former 90 Day Fiancé star continues to face criticism for not coming home to her daughter.

The latest bout of criticism aimed at Nicole came after she thanked her mother, Robbalee Nafziger, for taking care of her young daughter, May, while she’s been gone most of 2020. After Nicole posted the tribute to her mom, she was slammed by her followers for putting Azan before her child, but Nicole clapped back and attempted to explain why she has yet to return to the United States and her daughter.

“Missing my mom so much,” Nicole wrote on Instagram. “She is the best mom and grandma out there. Thank you for taking care of my little girl since I can’t come back home yet.”

Nicole’s post quickly drew a lot of attention from critics arguing that she could in fact “come back home” as travel restrictions imposed previously (when Nicole was legitimately stuck in Morocco) have since been lifted and limited flights are available.

How’s quarantine life treatin’ ya, Azan?

One follower even suggested that, as an American, Nicole could have her flight cost covered. Nicole, however, denied all of these claims. 

“Haha they’re paying for it? I’d like to know where they said that because every time I’ve looked into it, it’s 2x/3x the price of a normal flight that the passenger has to pay,” she argued. “Y’all think you’ve got it all figured out because of whatever you [hear] but [were] you one of the people who had to actually email the government to see? Nope. 

“Stop judging my [life] and decisions,” she continued. “Just an idea. I know you won’t listen because it’s easier to pin me as a bad mom and gossip about the drama.”

Nicole— who hasn’t appeared on a “90 Day Fiance” show in a while— then seemed to hint that she may once again be planning to share her life on-camera.

“Soon enough y’all can take a [peek] into my real life. Maybe,” she wrote. 

Despite Nicole’s attempt to defend herself, comments slamming her parenting continued to pour in, with many standing by the belief that Nicole can come home, she just chooses not to. Others pointed out how irresponsible it was for Nicole to fly to Morocco back in March, despite the government warning against it.

“I will never be able to wrap my head around flying across the world without your child when you knew we were in a pandemic,” one person wrote. “There’s zero excuse.” 

“I’d find a way to get home to my kids. Period,” another comment read. 

“Right?? Nothing in the world could stop me from trying to get back to them,” added another. 

and how long it’s been since your mom ditched you for her Moroccan lover…

While Nicole has continued to share photos of her daughter, presumably sent to her by her family in the U.S., an insider told In Touch Weekly that Nicole’s relatives weren’t thrilled about her decision to travel to Morocco during a pandemic. Still, the family was FaceTiming and doing what they could do to make sure May was in contact with her mom as much as possible and that she was safe and taken care of. 

“As if I had any other choice in the matter.”

“They understand that [Nicole is] an adult and can make her own decisions,” the source added. “She knows how her family feels about Azan but chooses to follow her feelings over theirs.” 

As for what Nicole is doing to keep busy while in Morocco, she continues to post clickbait stories about other “90 Day Fiance” stars, in addition to hocking the occasional fake pregnancy story about herself on social media…as you do.

  1. I could hear that word salad in my head in her slurred speech. This is something an indignant 12 year old would write.

    So she couldn’t use her clickbait money from her dumb IG stories or even start a GoFundMe to get back? Nope, she wants to use that money to glome onto Azan. She’s like one of those white blood cells that engulf anything it finds…. except not useful in anyway.

  2. I would say the child is better off with the grandmother….. Then I remember she raised Nichole…

      Nicole should grow up. She acts like a spoilt brat, not like a responsible mom to her daughter. May should be her first priority – always. I will know as I have been a single mom since my 2 kids were aged 9 and 5 years old. When you are a parent Nicole, your priority should be your kids and life does not only evolve around you!!
      Maybe your mom should stop making it easier for you and make you take responsibility. Life is not all about sex and fun, it should also, firstly be about providing a stable, safe environment for May.

  3. Tbh, I dont think Nicole is going to ever go home to her daughter. It’s been several months, and she seems quite comfortable; if she wasnt she would have came home a long time ago. Her daughter is probably better off with Nicole’s mom, who seems more stable. Maybe shes losing weight and learning Arabic like she told Azan she was going to do.

    Sick to stay away from your kid this long. More lies huh?

    She needs to be turned in to the state of Florida for this

  6. She’s very good at lying. She makes excuses why she can’t return to the states, but we know the real deal. Months away from your child and no one believes the crap coming out your mouth. You’ve lied to your mom several times before. Remember we saw you do it on the show.

    1. Is she though? I feel like she she’s the worst liar. She lies like a 4 year old. She takes long pauses and you can see her trying to think her way out of it (rubbing those two brain cells she has furiously together) and then she does that weird sigh she does and looks down. Her stories never make sense. She’s only “good” at it because it seems like everyone around her enables her so they don’t have to deal with her tantrums.

    As a Mom-Grand-ma and Great-grandma the only thought I have is that sweet child is better off without a Mother that would leave her child like this! To leave was bad enough. But to do so during the pandemic is Outrageous! What if that Dear child was hit with the virus? Where would you be then-Mother? I say Mother because that is what she is. Not any term of endearment like Mama or Mommy. Just the Birth Mother.

    Nicole is an overindulged spoiled child. She tricked May’s father into the pregnancy but he stood firm. She is like a pilot fish that sucks onto a shark, a tick with her head firmly attached to Azim. He is an opportunist that got a lot more than he bargained for. God help little May.

  9. She’s not a very good mother and soon May will.not see her as her mother! No Dad now No Mom..sad May so young and so confused

  10. Weird how I would actually respect her more if she just admitted that she does not want to be a mom. Poor little May!

  11. I actually feel like my IQ dropped just by reading her comment. She sounds like such an ignorant, childish fool. Her kid is better off without her, unfortunately.

  12. Serious question….can she get “deported” back to the US for being over in Morocco for too long?

    1. I don’t know if they’d deport her for lack of resources or interest etc. but I know that you have a visa that only allows you to stay for so long, which is one of the reasons they were rushing towards getting married in the past (insert chuckle here).

  13. That moron is STILL over there?! Her mom needs to just file for full custody of May. That is ridiculous. She is still chasing after a dude that doesn’t even like her…he just likes the monetary benefits that come along with pretending he’s going to marry her.

    1. Agreed. I think her mom or sister would have a great case for custody. Between the squalor that was her apartment, her general lack of motivation and neglectful parenting style, to her now fully abandoning her child with family for four months, I think it is an easy decision for the judge. May is such a sweet little girl and she deserves stability.

      There is nothing in the world that could keep me from my son for four months. I’d die trying to get back to him. I’m sure her family could pool the funds to get her back here and if not, she could start a GoFundMe and link it to her many followers. I am not a fan of crowd-sourcing but this is a worthy reason to put the ask out and she hasn’t even tried. She doesn’t want to me a full-time parent and she clearly never has.

  14. In this particular instance it is much better that May is with her parents rather than Nicole. Nicole legit has the mentality of a 14 year old and has shown a serious lack of judgement a multitude of times during her time on the show. She is completely unfit to adult, so hopefully the grandparents are documenting all this to make a case to keep May. Also, she’s had ample opportunities to come home, in the past she’s always been able to come up with money to fly there, stay for months, fly there with her daughter and stay for months, buy vacation packages for her May and Azan to go on island excursions, but she can not afford a flight back: sure Jan. Also, her mother and stepfather would have bought her a ticket home any time she would have asked for it. This girl is so pathetic.

  15. I don’t think she’s even in Morocco. She hasn’t posted a new pic of her and Ascam the entire time she’s supposedly been there. If she was really with him, she’d be ALL OVER posting pics, especially since she’s not under contract with TLC anymore.

    1. Interesting point. I don’t use Instagram so I didn’t realize that. Do you think she is there but he has refused to see her? Because it doesn’t make sense for her to be home, either, since she hasn’t posted any of her and May and is taking all this backlash for leaving her in the states.

    2. Or maybe she’s there but not staying with Azan. Maybe he concocted some story about how they can’t stay together due to “new laws” or something LOL. and has her posted up in some random motel or apartment.

  16. She really is trying to come up with every excuse possible to justify abandoning her own child for a man. I think her daughter is likely better off without her, to be honest. Nicole clearly does not care about May at all.

  17. The sad truth is that little May is probably much better off with grandma. It’s in May’s best interest for Nicole to just stay in Morocco with Asshat. I mean Azan. (I bet he’s thrilled with this situation! Doesn’t he have a wife??)

  18. I think she did this on purpose. Now Azan is pretty much stuck with her and she doesn’t have to be a parent.

    1. Oh she for sure did this on purpose….I’m not sure she realized that she would be “stuck” there for over damn near 4 months, but she knew she would be stuck over there for at least 3 weeks after the shut down…that’s why she still decided to go literally days before America cancelled flights. She thinks she’s slick, but is too dumb to realize the only person she fools is herself.

  19. My god. I would be on airline websites every single hour of the day looking for flights. How can her mom just assume this responsibility? My mom would be FUMING if I even left my daughter with her for a few days! This whole situation is insane
