“90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” Season 4 couple Nicole Nafziger and Azan Tefou’s relationship may appear to be cooling off onscreen but offscreen, Nicole insisted that they are stronger than ever.

This season, viewers have seen Nicole struggle to get closer to Azan. After he backed out of their trip to Granada, fans began to suspect he was using Nicole for her money.

Lately, viewers have been questioning Nicole about break up articles that have been circulating about her and Azan’s relationship. On Tuesday, In Touch shared screenshots from Nicole’s on Instagram Story, in which she addressed the split rumors.

After reading an article claiming Nicole and Azan broke up, one viewer asked Nicole whether the report was true.

“100% NOT TRUE. Idk where this is coming from. Make sure when you read articles, you check when it was posted. Sometimes old articles circulate. We are still happily together,” she replied.

One fan then asked Nicole why there were so many articles about the alleged split. Although she didn’t have an exact answer, she shared a theory about the sudden interest in her relationship.

“I really don’t know. I haven’t seen any articles. I bet someone just said it and kept spreading it. But can we just take a moment and say how crazy it is with how many articles there are about me in the last couple years?” Nicole revealed.

Despite the false reports about her relationship, Nicole insisted she and Azan wouldn’t allow anything to come between them. “I continue our relationship because we love each other, and we want to be together,” Nicole answered.

“Distance doesn’t mean you give up. It just means you have to fight harder to be together. The journey makes us stronger as a couple and individuals,” she added.

On the “90 Day Fiancé” spinoff, viewers last saw Nicole planning a trip to Morocco. Although Nicole suggested the two should get married during her visit, fans will have to wait to find out if the couple will reunite and begin planning their wedding.

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