The untold truth of Mohamed and Danielle from 90 Day Fiance

Danielle Jbali (née Mullins) and Mohamed Jbali are one of the classic OG 90 Day Fiancé couples. They appeared in Season 2 of the show in 2014, then again on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After in 2016 and 2017. The couple originally met in an online chatroom when Danielle was living in Sandusky, Ohio, and Mohamed was living in Tunisia. Mohamed moved to Ohio and married Danielle, but their 90 days of engagement were incredibly rocky, and things definitely didn't improve after the wedding. In fact, they only went downhill from there. Let's just say the cops got involved multiple times, and their fights were among the all-time cringiest on 90 Day Fiancé.

Several years post-wedding, Danielle and Mohamed are now divorced and living separate lives. But what really happened to this fairy-tale-gone-wrong? Let's dive into Danielle and Mohamed's history both before and after their time as 90 Day Fiancé stars.

Danielle and Mohamed's relationship was always turbulent

Soon after Mohamed Jbali touched down in Ohio to be with his new then-fiancée, Danielle Mullins, things started to go awry. Their 90 days together were filled with drama as both Mohamed and Danielle began to uncover lies. Mohamed found out that Danielle had an unexpected amount of financial troubles, while Danielle discovered that Mohamed had lied about having a job (via The Cinemaholic).

Despite all of this, they went ahead and got married before Mohamed's 90-day visa expired, but the drama continued after the wedding. Jbali called the police on his wife various times for opening an account in his name, destroying his clothes, and stealing money from him, per Radar Online.

In 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Mohamed revealed that he'd never been attracted to Danielle. The revelation wasn't exactly surprising to fans, considering he famously refused to kiss her at their wedding. At the reunion show in 2016, he even accused her of having hygiene issues and peeing on him (yes, really), saying that was why he stopped being intimate with her. Danielle later responded to this, and other, accusations on Facebook, explaining that she "takes a shower every day" and was having "issues with my periods" at the time.

Mohamed left Danielle after he got his green card

Danielle and Mohamed Jbali's marriage didn't last long. Mohamed reportedly left Danielle and moved to Miami just two months after he got his green card, according to E! News.

On Season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Danielle tried her best to get her ex-husband kicked out of the country. First, she attempted to annul the marriage. After he convinced her not to go through with it, she went to Miami to confront him, accusing him of infidelity and threatening deportation. "I felt used, so I filed for an annulment. That was my best chance to get him deported," Danielle said on the show. "But when he begged me to file for a divorce instead, I gave in so he could stay in America."

Danielle claimed that she paid for the K-1 visa process, the wedding, and the divorce, per Cosmopolitan. Apparently, Mohamed promised to repay her, but Danielle says that never happened. According to Radar Online, she sued Mohamed for fraud for $12,500 in September 2017. The court papers read, "Defendant committed fraud against Plaintiff by luring Plaintiff into a romantic relationship to secure funds and immigration status."

Mohamed is still living and working in the United States

Danielle and Mohamed Jbali's divorce was finalized in 2017, and Mohamed was allowed to remain in the country, per E! NewsAfter living in Miami, Austin, and Chicago, he's now settled in Indianapolis, according to his Instagram page. He has a dog — an Akita named Bowie — and he's an avid photographer (via Cosmopolitan). He often shares photos of his cooking, travels, and life. At one point, he started a YouTube channel with videos about how to make money and follow your passion, but he hasn't updated it since 2019.

In December 2019, Mohamed announced his plans to start traveling full-time as a truck driver, per In Touch Weekly. "Me and this guy are about to become homeless soon!" he said in a since-deleted posted that featured a photo of his dog. "Not that we have no place to stay, but we choose to go after big money so we gonna give up on everything and be on the road driving an 18 wheeler and help America transport food and other important things to stay great."

Mohamed has continued to post about his life on the road with Bowie, often alongside inspirational captions. In one photo of his dog in the truck, he shared his take on COVID-19: "We live in quarantine with or without you Corona!" Commenters thanked Mohamed for continuing to deliver supplies through the crisis.

Danielle moved forward from that 90 Day Fiance mess

Mohamed Jbali may have been the one to break things off, but it didn't take Danielle Jbali too long to move on, either. As of 2019, she'd started dating someone that she met while she was with Mohamed. "He had reached out to me and Mohamed both during our first season of 90 Day Fiancé. We stayed in contact after me and Mohamed split. He was there for me and my kids after Mohamed left," she told InTouch. 

However, it seems that things haven't been entirely smooth for Danielle since the divorce. In 2018, reality TV blog The Ashleys reported that she'd asked her Facebook friends for financial help and started a GoFundMe, which has since been deactivated. She reportedly works as a home health aide.

Danielle continues to share updates about her life on social media, and she got a makeover in a follow-up episode called 90 Day Fiancé: What Now? She often shares photos of her grandkids and promotes various products on her Instagram page. Since she hasn't posted about a boyfriend in some time, it's unclear if she's still in a relationship. She still uses her ex-husband's last name.

Danielle would go on to appear on 90 Day Fiance: Self Quarantined, the show's special limited-run series devoted to the coronavirus pandemic, alongside more than 40 other cast members in April 2020.

Danielle and Mohamed are 'building a friendship'

This is something we weren't expecting! After the divorced pair's toxic, drawn-out court battle finally ended in 2017, Danielle and Mohamed pretty much severed ties ... until more recently, that is. During an April 2020 episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined, Danielle showed fans that maybe time really can heal all wounds. "I haven't seen Mohamed in three years," she said (via US Weekly), but added, "He reached out to me about a month ago and we have been chit-chatting here and there." Explaining that they have now "forgiven each other," Danielle revealed, "We're building a friendship."

Clarifying their virtual reunion, the reality TV star later told InTouch, "All of a sudden in February, someone messages me like, 'Hi, how are you?' We've been talking since then. It's funny." She went on to admit, "I've never dreamed in a million years he would reach out on his own." When asked what she thinks inspired Mohamed to reach out, Danielle said, "With everything that's happening in the world, I think [he] had a change of heart." Revealing that they now talk "maybe twice a week," Danielle told the outlet that their topics of conversation range from their families to reminiscing about how "the show portrayed him wrong and stuff like that."

This 90 Day Fiance star swears she's moved on for good

Despite Danielle's revelation that she and Mohamed have been speaking on a weekly basis and striving to build a new type of relationship, the 90 Day Fiancé star assured her fans that she was not seeking to rekindle the romance with her ex-husband. As she told viewers on 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined, she was merely thinking about his safety amid the pandemic and cared for him ... as a friend. "He is out on the road driving a truck," she said (via US Weekly), noting, "I'm more concerned about his well-being as a friend, and it's scary to be out there by yourself with all this going on."

In an interview with InTouch, Danielle proclaimed that she's "moved on for good." When asked how her family felt about her budding friendship with her ex, she said, "They don't seem to mind it, because they know that I'm over him." As for whether or not they'll ever see each other in-person again, Danielle admitted she wouldn't mind. "I suggested one time he should stop when he's in Ohio and we can meet up," she told the outlet. "But it just all depends where he's at." 

Danielle's making 90 Day Fiance enemies

With Danielle and Mohamed no longer exchanging jabs, the reality TV star took aim at her fellow 90 Day Fiancé cast members. In April 2020, she went after 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 4 star Ed Brown, telling InTouch, "At first, I liked Ed, but the more I get to see him ... him telling [Rose] what to do, like shave her legs — no."

Danielle also made an enemy in Before the 90 Days Season 7's Anna-Marie Campisi when she shared an article in her Instagram Stories titled, "90 Day Fiance star arrested" alongside a photo of Anna, which actually led to an article about Nicole Nafziger's dad, Tyler, being arrested. Anna took to Instagram to clarify that she was not in trouble with the law and slammed Danielle, writing (via InTouch), "I understand you need to feed your family, but maybe look into ways that don't hurt others. You have choices." Anna added, "I was contacted by companies, but I would never do that to make money." 

Meanwhile, Danielle washed her hands of the whole situation, telling InTouch, "I understand where Anna is coming from, but I have no control what pictures and articles the company puts together." She also claimed that Anna had called her "trash" and fired back, "It does not make me trash for trying to make money to support me and my family."

Danielle is working hard to prove her haters wrong

Danielle and Mohamed's relationship is one of the most notorious in 90 Day Fiancé history — and Danielle is no stranger to Internet haters. As she told InTouch in January 2020, all of the negative comments piled up. "I would take a lot of things to heart that the haters and the fans would say when they would cut me down — and they got me depressed," Danielle shared. So she decided to do something about it. Danielle started hitting the treadmill, counting her calories, and keeping track of her steps with a Fitbit. Her go-to diet foods are "turkey taco meat with cauliflower rice, built bars, fruit, yogurt, sweet potatoes and chicken," and she's also relying on a number of weight loss products. "I am using the detox tea and I use LA Nutrition products, such as the collagen peptides, cedar max, [and] their vitamins," she told the media outlet.

As of November 2019, Danielle had lost 15 pounds and she's continued to document her weight loss journey on social media, all while promoting various diet solutions. One of her favorite clients is BOOMBOD. In March 2020, she gushed on Instagram, "I'm definitely loving the difference it made. Cravings are way down, I'm making better snack choices, and I'm actually feeling super motivated to keep going for my goals — it's a great feeling!" Meanwhile, she wrote that May, "Doing what I can to stay on track right now, and @boombod is helping me out big time."
