In June the world was introduced to 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couple Rebecca and Zied in TLC’s teaser trailer.
The pair raised eyebrows for a handful of reasons, one of which is that Rebecca was already married to someone else.
Now the series has finally premiered, and while we’ve got a way to go before we learn Rebecca’s fate, we’re here to tell you at least one of her relationships is officially over.
When Zied — and 90 Day fans — met Rebecca, she was sitting on a pretty big secret.
Not only had Rebecca been married three times, she was still married to her third husband.
“I want the engagement, I want the wedding, I want our life to start,” Rebecca said in the premier.
“But,” she said, “I just have left a lot of things out about my past.”
“I’m keeping a secret from Zied,” the 47-year-old admitted, referring of course to her marital status.
“I have no idea what Zied is going to do when he finds out,” Rebecca worried during her confessional.
“He could absolutely end this relationship,” she reasoned.
But as we reported, and as Rebecca goes on to explain, the whole situation isn’t quite as shady as it seems.
In truth, Rebecca was only married in the legal sense.
Not that that’s a small detail — the legal recognition is arguably the whole point of getting married, especially on 90 Day Fiance.
But Rebecca was never two-timing Zied; she was separated from her husband, but hadn’t finalized her divorce.
“As of right now, I’m not technically divorced from my ex,” said Rebecca in the confessional.
She went on to explain that she “just kept putting it off” emotionally, because the relationship ended so badly.
Sometimes, relationships end so badly that you can’t bare to face your ex under any circumstances.
We could understand how that would interfere with the divorce process, which often requires more painful face time with an ex.
Unfortunately it’s something that needs to be dealt with before working up to a new marriage.
Now, it looks like Rebecca has finally cleared away the old baggage and paved the way for new suitors like Zied.
According to court documents recently obtained by In Touch, Rebecca’s divorce was finalized on July 9.
Like Zied, Rebecca’s ex-husband was from overseas.
Rebecca and her Moroccan ex originally married in 2013, but were separated in January of 2018.
It would be over a year before she actually filed for divorce in May of 2019, well after meeting Zied.
But hey, better late than never, right?
All things considered, the turn-around on that divorce was pretty quick, once Rebecca actually filed for it.
Sometimes these things get messy, and drag on for months to years in court.
The first episode shows Rebecca beginning the process, heading to court to file the paperwork.
But since the divorce wasn’t finalized until last month, it likely won’t be covered on this season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.
It’s a shame we won’t get to see if the divorce saves Rebecca and Zied’s relationship on screen any time soon.
But judging from the comments made by her (alleged) son on reddit in June, Rebecca and Zied survived the ordeal and still love each other very much.
So, we can’t say for sure if Rebecca is single, but at least we all know she’s not married.
We’d like to congratulate Rebecca on her un-nuptuals, and wish her the best of luck with her new beau.
