Mullins, then living in Norwalk, began dating Jbali, a Tunisia native, after meeting on the Internet. He came to Norwalk to make a go of it with Mullins on a 90-day visa. Their courtship and eventual marriage was filmed for Season 2 of TLC's hit reality TV series 90 Day Fiancé.
As fans of the show are well aware, Jbali and Mullins have had their fair share of ups and downs. Prior to the wedding, Jbali expressed he had concerns about marrying Mullins while talking to an immigration counselor.
The two then split in October 2016 and were granted a divorce in March. Danielle chose to keep her double last name, Mullins Jbali.
Fans have been following Jbali's story since then. After moving from Florida, where he lived without Mullins, Jbali, 29, is now living in Texas, according to his Instagram posts (@mohamedjbaliusa), where he gives fans regular updates.
Recently, Jbali revealed he is interested in making a career out of YouTube videos.
"I am really enjoying this, I might turn it to a career," he said in a recent post of a photo of video-editing equipment.
According to inTouch Magazine, Jbali currently is paying bills by working as a driver for the ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft. But the YouTube interest didn’t come as a shock.
The celebrity magazine reported Jbali has “always liked to use Instagram live, Instagram video and Facebook live to tell his side of the story,” especially during the TLC filming. His social media usage reportedly got him in trouble with TLC because he revealed too much information about his life.
Mullins Jbali told the Reflector Tuesday she is about to begin her fourth semester of college classes, working toward becoming a registered nurse. She also bought her own double-wide mobile home in Sandusky a year ago. Though life has improved since she last spoke with the Relector, when she said social media drama was getting out of control, things with her ex-husband are still less than ideal as she pursues legal action against him.
“I have a civil suit pending against Mohamed to get back all my money I put into immigration, money he took from first tell, his airline ticket here and money I sent him before he came to the U.S.,” she wrote in a message to the Reflector.
Mullins Jbali said she is seeking about $12,500 total.
While on the show, the age difference — she is about 15 years older — caused a great degree of controversy, along with the validity of their affection and Mullins’ honesty of her financial problems. The couple also sought help from Dr. Phil when Mullins suspected Jbali was not being faithful, following his excursion with one of her friends.
In case you’re not familiar with the show’s platform, “90 Day Fiancé” films single people from other parts of the world as they court American citizens through the use of a K-1 90-day visa. If the couple doesn’t marry in the 90 days, the overseas partner returns to his or her native country.
