As you know, Mohamed Jbali has moved to Texas. Though he provides his followers with updates (and life advice) pretty regularly, he’s said that he doesn’t want to appear on 90 Day Fiance anymore.
Right now, he’s intent on working and enjoying his new life in America. Unfortunately, that may come to an end.
Sunday morning, he shared an image of a very formal letter of denial from US Customs and Immigration.
It’s been clear to most 90 Day Fiance fans that Mohamed Jbali’s entire motive for marrying a US citizen was to acquire legal residence for himself.
He came to the US, had sex with Danielle Mullins (once), and became one of the most talked-about stars on a reality series.
At the very least, you’d think that now that he has that marriage and his short-lived reality career behind him, he could move on and enjoy his new life in Texas.
But … maybe not.
So, remember back in October when we told you about how Mohamed Jbali might face deportation after some very important documents vanished in the mail en route to US Citizenship and Immigration Services?
It turns out that, though the vast majority of Green Cards are renewed, they are really not the sorts of forms that you want to get lost in the mail.
Take a look at Mohamed Jbali’s crushing news:
Jbali shared this on Sunday morning, with the caption:
“Sometimes the law does not make any sense because the person who made it never been in that situation.”
He didn’t post the entirety of what looks like a rejection letter, but you can see the word “Denial” written pretty clearly.
It’s even in bold.
Interestingly, part of the form that Mohamed hasn’t seen fit to share with fans would contain the explanations for why he’s being denied.
(If his application had been accepted, it’s our understanding that it would have been good for another decade)
Whether it’s because the forms vanished in the mail and were therefore late or there’s more to it (we can’t help but wonder if Danielle Mullins’ quest for revenge is somehow involved)
Regardless, though, this is crushing news for Mohamed Jbali.
Whatever you may think of Mohamed from what you saw of him on 90 Day Fiance, this is a not-great situation.
We’re sure that Mohamed wishes that his biggest legal worry were over Danielle Mullins suing him for withholding sex during their marriage (basically).
There is, however, hope.
As countless fans pointed out in comments, if your application for permanent residency is denied, there’s an appeals process.
That can be expensive, time-consuming, and stressful … but after everything that Mohamed’s gone through to get to where he is today, we can’t imagine that he’s going to just throw up his hands and wander back to Tunisia.
Whether or not Mohamed manages to win his appeal will probably be contingent upon why he was denied in the first place.
In addition to having been a reality star — that’s about as American as you can get — he’s also gainfully employed, paying both rent and taxes on top of other expenses. To our knowledge, he hasn’t been in legal trouble since his move to Texas.
So, if it’s just because the form was lost, we’d sure hope that he’d win his appeal.
(As some fans pointed out, sometimes denials are sent out because most people won’t go through the work to fight them, even though a court battle is still less stressful than deportation)
We wonder if the brevity of his marriage to Danielle Mullins was a factor, however. We’re no experts on immigration, but if officials decide that Mohamed scammed his way into the US, that could work against him.
We sure hope that the people deciding his case are not 90 Day Fiance viewers.

We’ve been introduced to a whole host of new 90 Day Fiance stars, but will there ever be a couple as memorable as Mohamed Jbali and Danielle Mullins?
Just because they’re over doesn’t mean that this pair of exes didn’t impact each other’s lives. Danielle brought Mohamed to the US.
And Mohamed? Well, he may have started a rumor that Danielle Mullins has an STI. At least, that’s what fans seem to think.
Recently, Danielle Mullins has faced some disappointments, as what looked like the birth of a brand new reality career was cut short.
Mohamed Jbali has moved and is keeping busy, claiming that he’s working long hours but nonetheless finding the time to stir up controversy with his fans.
We’ll get into all of that in a moment, because it’s the couple’s past that we need to talk about at the moment.
See, Mohamed is from Tunisia and Danielle Mullins is from the US.
Danielle is quite a bit older than Mohamed, but the couple became engaged and even got married.
Though we know that Danielle and Mohamed did have sex — once, to consummate their marriage — the topic of intercourse was a contentious one within their relationship.
Basically, Mohamed Jbali would refuse to bang Danielle. And Danielle was not shy about demanding that he perform his husbandly duties.
The two eventually decided to divorce, though Danielle initially sought revenge against Mohamed by seeking an annulment (hoping to send him back to Tunisia).
Mohamed accused Danielle of having an unpleasant body odor, which he cited as the reason for his disinterest.
But was there more to it than a lack of attraction?
Let’s look at some of Mohamed Jbali’s words:
“Of course I’m not going to have sex with someone like Danielle,” he said to her.
Hurtfully, he added:
“You do not know that nobody will have sex with someone like you!”
(Note that many of Danielle’s 90 Day Fiance castmates were horrified by the way that Mohamed spoke to her, even if they didn’t particularly like Danielle)
But here’s the question:
Was Mohamed Jbali body-shaming Danielle for her appearance and alleged odor, as many of us first assumed?
Or was he referring to a sexually transmitted infection?
Let’s look at some of his other words for clues.
Before his stunned and horrified castmates, Mohamed declared this about Danielle Mullins:
“She has a problem that she needs to see a doctor before she has sex with someone.”
We don’t know if he’s referring to vaginal odor (which can happen when your pH balance gets out of whack — genital odor is normal to a degree, but if it’s unpleasant, there’s probably something wrong).
He may have been referring to something else.
Some people don’t use the right deodorant products, or don’t use them as directed. Or they don’t shower or they don’t wash their clothes enough. All of those can cause, well, some unpleasant olfactory experiences.
It’s also possible — and we are in no way saying this to shame Danielle Mullins’ figure — that Danielle may have had something extraordinary.
Sometimes there are tiny growths, such as yeast, that produce distinctive smells. These growths thrive in the folds of fat that some people may have (different people carry weight differently, of course).
However … the line directing her to see a doctor makes a number of fans wonder if perhaps Mohamed believes that Danielle has some sort of STI.
Perhaps, strange as it may sound, Mohamed felt that accusing her of being foul-smelling and unattractive was the less damaging option than explaining his real fear.
Fans are divided over what might be causing Danielle’s alleged odor. Some believe that Mohamed may have fabricated it altogether.
Regardless, we hope that Danielle has seen a doctor. Even if it’s just a pH balance issue or a hygiene problem, nobody deserves to go around while smelling unpleasant.
And if she doesn’t have a smell, well, the doctor can confirm that for her.
As for Mohamed Jbali’s current whereabouts … he has moved to Texas.
He’s told fans that he’s now working 13 hours a day … which is odd, because he has also claimed that he never misses a day at the gym. If both are true, it sounds like he’s sacrificing sleep.
(It’s not odd that he’s needing money — because 90 Day Fiance stars are paid shockingly little)
Mohamed also stirred up some controversy recently by making some statements that sounded homophobic to a number of fans. He later made multiple posts explaining that he’s fine with LGBT fans.
Danielle Mullins, in the mean time, lost out on a makeover show over alleged mental instability.
It sounds like Danielle was uncooperative and it’s been alleged that the management company with which she’s now parted ways was making some intrusive demands about her social media use.
Honestly, many feel that Mohamed Jbali and Danielle Mullins had dishonest intentions about getting engaged and married in the first place.
Some think that the couple deserved each other. We don’t know that we’d go that far.
90 Day Fiance star Mohamed Jbali is dealing with a lot right now.
He recently confessed that he might get deported thanks to a paperwork issue. He's in the middle of moving. And he recently found a new, post-Danielle romantic entanglement.
Well, in a new Instagram video that we have for you below, he delivers some updates and shares one, possibly paranoid, fear of his.
On Halloween, Mohamed Jbali shared a text update on his big move to Texas:
"I am officially homeless until I get to my new place in Texas."
That's such a weird feeling, right? When your apartment is no longer yours but your stuff isn't at your new place, yet?
It must be immeasurably more intimidating for people who aren't from the US who, should something go wrong, can't just drive to a friend's place or their mom's because Tunisia is not conveniently nearby.
And then, on Wednesday, Mohamed shared another update:
"I've been driving forever and I'm still in Tallahassee that's because I have a heavy load."
He makes a goofy analogy trying to connect that as a metaphor for all of life, which shows you how absolutely, mind-blastingly boring driving a moving truck can be.
Well, now he's shared a video update on everything that he's been up to.
"I'm still in Alabama."
The US is, though we don't often think about it, very large. Traveling between states can take days, easily.
Mohamed has probably had his fill of the logistics of driving a moving truck, so he decided to give his fans an update on something much more interesting:
"You remember when I told you that love is happening?"
He has recently hinted at a blossoming romance, but not shared a lot.
Many have suspected that his newfound love is in Texas. (He'll address that, also, in a moment)
"I was talking to a girl from Canada."
He's using the past tense, so … that's not promising.
"And I thought we are good for each other, but, after some time, we found out that it's not happening, it's not … we are not a good match. So we broke up."
That sounds like the right course of action. Besides, was Mohamed going to move to Canada to be with her? How many countries can you hop to?
Then, strangely, he seems to backtrack and correct himself.
"We didn't even start a relationship. We decided that we don't want this; that's it."
It's hard to tell if they really didn't get past the talking phase, or if he's just trying to minimize what they had for his fans.
Sometimes Mohamed can be a little hard to read.
Like we said, he talks about his move to Texas.
His plans are no longer vague — he knows exactly where he's going to be living.
"Now, I am moving to Texas. To be living with a family. They are friends and they are going to rent a room for me in their house and I'm going to be paying my rent every month."
You might think that this goes without saying, but we think that there's more to Mohamed belaboring this point than just his desire to be clear.
See, Mohamed got on 90 Day Fiance and into the US by, well, hopping into bed with Danielle Mullins. Just once, to consummate their marriage, but still.
That, very famously, didn't work out. But Mohamed got to the US, like he wanted.
Some people see him as, if not a gold digger, a man who will do whatever it takes in order to get to where he wants to be.
Fair or not, that reputation follows him.
So he felt the need to address it.
"No love involved. No relationship involved. Just a roommate with a family. They have kids and everything, so I am not going for love."
Clearly, Mohamed feels more than a little grudging about having to clarify that he's not paying rent with his body.
In fact, he seems paranoid that people will make up stories about him anyway.
"Don't believe the media; they are sick."
From some people, that would sound like the lady protesting too much. In Mohamed Jbali's case, he's just a very outspoken guy who gets a little heated sometimes … and who's been doing a lot of driving.
Honestly, videos for his fans are probably a healthy way for him to blow off steam.
Here's the video:
It looks like the proverbial mountain will come to Mohamed Jbali.
Unfortunately for him, by "mountain," we mean the folks at US Customs and Immigration Enforcement. In the video below, Mohamed says that they've opened an investigation into him after some very important forms that he sent in vanished in the mail.
Danielle Mullins must be feeling pretty chipper right about now. Mohamed … not so much.
So, like half of the stars of 90 Day Fiance, Mohamed Jbali is not originally from the United States.
He comes from Tunis, Tunisia — and he came to the US to marry Danielle Mullins.
If you're wondering how well that worked out … they're no longer married, and Danielle is suing Mohamed for money that she says that she spent on him.
But it's pretty clear that, in addition to her desire to recoup lost finances, Danielle wants to punish Mohamed for only having sex with her once during their relationship — to consummate their marriage.
Mohamed's refusal to have sex with Danielle was a huge point of contention for her. As was her belief that he was cheating on her.
In turn, Mohamed accused Danielle of misusing his money and identity, of having lied about her criminal background, and of having a foul body odor that he believed required a doctor's attention.
It was, overall, a toxic relationship.
So much so that Danielle Mullins initially sought an annulment instead of a divorce, because she hoped that an annulment would neutralize Mohamed's legal residency (effectively revoking his Green Card) and get him sent back to Tunisia.
That seems to clearly be more about spite than anything else.
So, despite being so over 90 Day Fiance and its various spinoffs, Mohamed Jbali still has a multitude of fans (and haters) who follow him on social media for updates on his life.
Recently, he asked fans for advise about his upcoming move to Texas. He's been talking about that a lot on his Instagram videos, actually. He seems to be really excited about it.
Unfortunately, fate seems to have thrown a wrench into Mohamed's plans, as he explains:
"Since I came to the States three years ago — over three years ago, I used the Post Office services for, like, maybe over 50 times."
That's more times than I've used it in my adult life. Easily.
"Over, even, a lot — so many times. I never, ever used the insurance when I’m sending something."
That's a foreboding way to begin a story.
"This time, I was trying to send an application to the Immigration so I can get the condition removed from my green card and get the ten-year green card. Guess what happened?"
We can guess.
"They lost the file! I never sent anything with the post office and got lost. This time, when I used the insurance — and this was an overnight mail — they lost my application. Now they’ve started an investigation."
In comments as he responded to fan feedback, he did mention that something similar had happened before related to his Green Card, so maybe his track record with the USPS isn't so great.
In case you're unfamiliar with the particulars of the K-1 visa process, basically Mohammed's residency is conditional at the moment.
After two years, he needs to apply to make his Green Card no longer conditional, and his legal residency extended to 10 years.
(Seriously, folks — on top of all of the rigorous vetting that every immigrant experiences, they also have mountain after mountain of paperwork to go through)
Mohamed made a follow-up post, about how he had interacted with a post office manager.
It did not go well, and he reported that the manager became toxic.
(Mohamed himself isn't always the friendliest guy, let's be honest, so we'd be willing to believe that there were problems on both sides … but clearly this is a matter of considerable importance for Mohamed. His whole life hinges upon that one lost envelope, you know?)
Some fans and commenters suggested that perhaps this was a conspiracy against Mohamed on the part of some postal worker who recognized his fame and decided to sabotage his attempts to send in letters.
Mohamed said that he didn't think so — which is pretty reasonable. He's a reality star but he's not, you know, that famous.
Hopefully he'll be able to get things sorted out and go through with his move to Texas. It will be very interesting to see him start a new life in the Lone Star state.
If things don't work out, well … we guess that Danielle Mullins will have gotten her wish.
In the video below, though, you can hear how distressed he is. You almost can't help but feel for the guy.
Mohamed Jbali seems to be making the best of his stay in the US, despite Danielle Mullins’ efforts to ruin his life. She’s suing him now, but she’s previously tried to get him deported and we don’t know for sure that she’s given up on that.
But though Mohamed says he’s done with 90 Day Fiance, he’s not done updating fans on his life and plans via social media.
And, following some hints, he’s shared that he’s leaving his current residence. But where is he going? And why is he asking for help?
Don’t worry — Mohamed Jbali hasn’t been deported.
Not yet, anyway.
He came here, he went through the K-1 visa process, he even consummated his marriage to Danielle Mullins with a single incidence of sex.
(That’s not enough for Danielle Mullins to not be a bitter ex, but it’s enough that Danielle was told that her odds of getting an annulment are slim-to-none, which means that Mohamed gets to stay in the US … we think)
Anyway, Mohamed seems to be making an effort to move away from Danielle — and that means moving out of Florida.
Specifically, he’s moving to Texas.
Following his mention of wanting to take up residence in the Lone Star state, Mohamed’s comments were apparently full of controversy.
So he responded … and is sharing a little more about his plans. Oh, and asking for help.
“I never, ever posted something and I didn’t have people fighting in the comments.”
Welcome to the internet.
“Guys, why you saying ‘It’s the red state,’ and ‘racist people,’ and ‘They are against Muslims.’ It’s just a state.”
We’ll get into the merits of that in a moment.
“There’s 50 states in America, OK? And they so many people they do live in Texas — Muslims and people who they are against Donald Trump — and they’re fine, they’re living happy.”
Yeah, Texas is home to literally millions of people who voted against Trump. There’s more to Texas than stereotypes, folks.
“If you look at the previous comments, I mean the previous post, you will see so many people they love Texas and they are happy living there.”
If you like that kind of weather, sure.
“Why, when I move there, people tell me: ‘Oh, you’re Muslim, you shouldn’t go there,’ or ‘It’s the red state,’ or ‘racist people.'”
It all depends where you move within the state.
“I’m not going to be fighting with these people. I’m just going to mind my business and have my own life. That’s it.”
We should note that Mohamed Jbali is absolutely right.
And that’s not a statement that we make all that often.
First of all, Texas, like most states in the US, has a huge cultural divide between urban centers as opposed to remote, rural areas.
Heavily populated areas, like cities and their surrounding suburbs, tend to be more diverse.
Politically, they tend to lean progressive.
Sparsely populated areas might be perfectly welcoming … or not.
An electoral map of most states looks like a number of blue dots in a sea of red, some close to blue dots and others seeming totally isolated. This is not unique to Texas.
(Texas is just, you know, bigger)
So moving to a red area in California and a red area in Texas are likely going to be comparable experiences.
And we should also point out that Texas is experiencing an electoral shift.
While Trump did win Texas by about 53% of the vote to Hillary’s 43%, a number of electoral forecasters were surprised that it was so “close.”
Nate Silver mentioned that, in the next couple of decades, it’s possible that Texas could become a swing state.
But it still has a ways to go.
You have to compare those percentages to swing states that ended up going for Trump. In North Carolina, for example, Trump won by about 49% to Hillary’s 46%. That’s a very close call.
So, long story short, if Mohamed Jbali goes to Texas and settles in Houston or Austin, he’s likely to have a normal metropolitan experience.
By the way, Mohamed is reaching out to his followers for a little help getting to Texas.
“I’m looking for a truck to move my stuff to Texas from Miami.”
Maybe he’s just sharing this with fans. If he gets an offer, he might show up only to find that it’s a trap set by Danielle Mullins.
(Kidding! Mostly …)
“The cheapest one I found is $ 1,500! Can you imagine that? $ 1,500 just for a truck. Wow. Wow. Wow. Like, imagine how much it was gonna be if I was moving to California or Washington the state or something like that!”
Even just moving to a city a few hours away can be expensive. I did it a couple of years ago.
“Life is too hard here in the States. Nothing is cheap. NOTHING is cheap! Everything is expensive.”
Yep. Standard of living is generally tied to cost of living.
“So, I gotta find another way to move my stuff without renting a truck.”
Or … he could dive back into reality television and use that cash to help him move.
Just a thought.
