“90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” Season 4 star Nicole Nafziger may have had her dreams crushed when her fiancé, Azan Tefou backed out of their vacation to Grenada, but she insists her relationship with the Morocco native is still going strong.

During episode 6 of the TLC series, Azan told Nicole he couldn’t meet her on vacation due to a family issue family that required his attention. While some viewers saw it as further proof that Azan doesn’t care for Nicole, the Florida resident fired back at fans who claimed Azan would end up hurting her.

On Sunday, Nicole held a Q&A session with viewers on her Instagram Story. In the past, fans and Nicole’s family have questioned whether Azan was using the single mother for her money. When one person commented on the topic, Nicole seemed less than thrilled about the assumption.

“I will pray for you, Nicole. Azan is not attracted to u and I just hope he doesn’t break ur heart,” the “90 Day Fiancé” viewer wrote.

However, Nicole slammed the fan for jumping to conclusions about her relationship. “Y’all are the ones who say I need to respect his culture about being affectionate in public,” she stated.

“Why do you think national tv is any different? He knows his family will see this show. We are not married. He respects his religion and his country. Think what you want. I know what I feel from him and in my heart.”

Despite criticism about their relationship, Nicole has insisted she and Azan are genuinely in love. One fan questioned Nicole about a rumor suggesting she and Azan were planning to get married in the summer. “Probably not this ‘summer’ but this year is highly likely,” she replied.

Although Nicole and Azan’s relationship appears to be on solid ground, the couple will face some challenges on the small screen.

“90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” Season 4 airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EDT on TLC.
