Nicole Nafziger is one of 90 Day Fiance’s most controversial cast members ever. She first appeared on season 4 with her Moroccan boyfriend Azan Tefou.
Their relationship was full of red flags. Upon first meeting Nicole, Azan said “she is big a little bit.” He also called her lazy and was constantly trying to get her to change her diet and exercise habits.
On the other hand, Nicole regularly complained about Moroccan culture. The two seemed to be constantly lying to each other and their families, and Nicole’s choice to introduce her daughter May to Azan — and insist that May call him “daddy” — angered many fans.
Nicole’s Morocco trip has sparked controversy
Recently, Nicole raised eyebrows by documenting a trip to Morocco on her Instagram account. She claims to have headed over to Morocco to see Azan, but fans are skeptical, particularly because Azan is rumored to have a secret wife and son.
Some accuse Nicole of outright lying about the trip while using old photos of her and Azan. Others think she may have made the trip uninvited.
Nicole is known to lie. For instance, fans witnessed her lying to her mother about plans to open a store with Azan in Morocco. This behavior left viewers skeptical while causing her to be controversial among the show’s fans.
Even fans who believe that Nicole is in Morocco aren’t really on her side. She has faced criticism for traveling during the global pandemic and for leaving May in the care of her mother Robbalee. On March 15, Morocco completely closed its air and sea borders, so travelers are essentially stranded there. That means that Robbalee will now need to care for May on an indefinite basis, doing so until the borders re-open.
Robbalee defended Nicole on Instagram
However, Robbalee does not seem to mind. Defending Nicole, she put fan questions about her daughter’s honesty to rest by confirming that Nicole is, indeed, traveling.
Robbalee recently responded to one hostile fan on Instagram.
“I would rather have her here,” Robbalee said of her daughter’s travel plans.
“But she is in charge of her own life and has to make her own decisions. I can only guide her to a better one. The rest is up to her.”
Robbalee also explained that her relationship with Nicole is just fine and that May is doing well.
“I love her no matter what,” Robbalee said of her daughter, “Thank you for your concern! May is doing great!”
While fans are relieved to learn that May is doing well, they’ll likely continue to worry about Nicole’s questionable choices. Hopefully, May will be able to see her mother again soon.
