Nicole Nafziger recently returned to the U.S. after spending five months in Morocco visiting her fiancé Azan Tefou; however, critics continue to question the 90 Day Fiancé couple’s relationship, with some believing the rumors that Azan already has a wife and child.
Someone who doesn’t believe this long-standing rumor is Nicole, who called the claims “completely fake.” In fact, Nicole told CelebMagazine she has proof that her fiancé is an unmarried man.
“This is the most ridiculous rumor I’ve heard of Azan yet,” she said. “Whoever’s ‘source’ this was really should have fact-checked this first. It’s completely fake. When Azan and I applied for the K1 a while back, you have to have a paper that says you’re single (not married). I saw that paper because I had to put the packet together.
“As much as people might want to paint me this way, I am not a desperate person for love that I would spend all this time on someone who was married,” she continued. “I wouldn’t do it. The point is Azan is not married yet. And when he is, I will be his first and only wife.”
While Nicole didn’t directly shut down the rumors of Azan already having a child in Morocco, she did confirm that they aren’t expecting a child of their own… not yet, anyway.
“I am not pregnant,” she said. “Azan and I definitely will make plans for a baby in our future after marriage.”
As ’90 Day Fiancé’ fans know, Nicole is already a mom to May, her daughter from a previous relationship. When Nicole left for Morocco in March, the majority of the hate she received online was from people accusing her of abandoning her young daughter amid the global C0VID-19 pandemic.
“I did not abandon my daughter,” she said. “I have never done that in my life.”
Nicole went on to defend her actions, claiming that she purchased her ticket to Morocco a month before leaving and had only planned to stay for two weeks. Since May was still in school at the time, Nicole’s mom Robbalee offered to take care of May during Nicole’s “short vacation,” however, that two-week trip ultimately lasted five months.
“Even at the time of my flying out, there wasn’t anything about the U.S. or Morocco closing borders and going into lockdown,” Nicole claimed. “Everything seemed to happen really fast about a week into my trip. I figured if I just wait this out, that I could fly home in about a month, maybe two at the most. My mom agreed and just told me to do what I thought was best.
“It hurt not getting back to May but I knew it wouldn’t be long before I got home,” she added.
As to why she didn’t return to the U.S. sooner, Nicole said she could’ve potentially gotten an earlier flight; however, she was concerned for her safety and thought it would be best to stay put.
“There were flights that the U.S. made for citizens to return home, but I was so nervous about it,” she explained. “I thought it would be overcrowded and maybe I wouldn’t even get on. I didn’t know what to think and with the news of the virus getting worse, I was scared. I just wanted to wait it out to see the borders opened and then I would get to fly home.”
