90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way returned for season 4 and this time around, fans were introduced to Stilwell, Oklahoma, native, Jen Boecher, as she moved to India to be with her fiancé, Rishi Singh, after being apart for more than two years. While they “considered” themselves engaged at the end of the season 4 tell-all, fans are curious if the couple is still together after filming the TLC series.
How Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Jen and Rishi Meet?
Jen lives on a farm with her mother, brother Charles and her sister-in-law, Tara, in Oklahoma, but considers herself more of a nomad. While she resided in New Orleans until high school, she’s lived in five to six major cities across the United States and has decided that a life with kids in the suburbs isn’t for her.
After taking a solo trip to India, she met Rishi in her hotel lobby. She initially dubbed the model a “douchebag” during their initial encounter but after they hung out a few more times, she fell for him.
“I didn’t really know what I wanted in a relationship until I met Rishi,” she told producers during their January 2023 debut. “His whole persona and energy is just very different from anyone I’ve ever dated.”
As for Rishi, he formerly worked in the corporate sector as a lawyer but after finding himself “in a cage,” he decided to pursue his passion for fitness.
Despite only spending 45 days together in person, a proposal came “immediately out of the blue” and Jen left India engaged. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it would be two years before Jen would move to India to live with Rishi.
Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Star Rishi Hide His Engagement to Jen From His Family?
Since making his reality TV debut, Rishi has kept his engagement to Jen a secret from his family.
During a family dinner that was featured on the February 19, 2023, episode, Rishi’s mother encouraged him to start dating. “We got her married,” she said about his sister. “You think about yours. Find a girl for yourself.”
However, Rishi argued that he was too busy to pursue a relationship. “I will marry, but I need time because there are so many things going on right now,” he explained.
Rishi’s mother wasn’t happy with his excuse and said she already found a woman in their village that is interested in marrying him. Additionally, she arranged for their families to meet the next day.
In a confessional, Rishi explained that Jen wasn’t aware of his mother’s plan to find him and wife.
Noting that his family didn’t know he was dating Jen, he explained that he previously introduced her to them as a friend.
Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Star Rishi Cheat on Jen?
When Jen returned to Stillwell, Oklahoma, amid her visa issues during the April 2, 2023, episode, she admitted that she didn’t anticipate or want to be home for this long” and said that her “life feels like it’s on hold” after Rishi re-proposed.
However, Jen began to question their relationship when her friend Randi said that Rishi sent her a photo of himself “with his shirt off” right before Jen visited him in India.
“Randi catfished Rishi before I went back to India the last time and I brushed off what Randi was saying about Rishi being unfaithful and the fact that he sent her these instant messages because I thought that it was some miscommunication of sorts,” Jen explained in a confessional. “But also because Rishi had told me that he had been faithful during our two years apart.”
The reality star then noted that she was concerned with Rishi’s behavior. “So when I see the shirtless photo that Rishi sent Randi — are you freaking kidding me dude?” she said. “I don’t know why he would send that. I genuinely am just disgusted. I’m disgusted.”
While Jen admitted that she was suspicious of the personal trainer, she said that she couldn’t break up with him over the photo he sent to her friend. “At this point I can’t just end the relationship so quickly and easily,” Jen said. “ It’s just not that easy. I love him. I have to go back. I can’t help it.”
During the April 16, 2023, episode, Jen’s friends, Randi and Myrah, came to India and confronted Rishi over the “half-naked” photo he sent to Randi.
When Jen asked why he would send the risqué photo, Rishi responded, “I just send them, reply, nothing more than that.”
She said his answer was “bulls–t” before adding, “Do you know how embarrassing this is for me?”
“I’m questioning my judgment, I’m questioning everything,” the TV personality admitted in a confessional.
Jen only continued to express her problems with Rishi sending half-naked photos to other women. “Rishi’s excuses, him thinking that it was a joke or pulling his leg. It just doesn’t make any sense. He’s just f–king talking in circles,” she said in a confessional. “I’m already not believing what’s coming out of his mouth because I happen to know that he was meeting up with her. Just say, ‘Yes, I flirted,’ or ‘Yes, I sent these messages.'”
He later explained that he sent the photo to Randi as a joke, though he blocked her number after their messages “kept going and going.”
Jen argued that it was suspicious that he blocked her friends. However, Rishi continued to insist that he did nothing wrong.
“From the beginning, I knew she was pulling my leg. So I was like, ‘OK, if she can do it, I can do it from my side too.”’ he explained in a confessional. “But she was trying to message more and putting more pressure on me, sending a lot of messages. I find it that it was inappropriate, so that’s why I blocked her.”
However, Jen and her friends didn’t stop there, they also confronted him about his parents’ attempts at finding him a bride.
“They are looking. But did I give the consent?” he replied before Jen stormed off from the table. “It something that I didn’t know about that. [sic]”
In a private confessional, Jen opened up about her confusion. “He originally said he didn’t know that his family has been looking for a bride for him until recently,” she told producers. “Hello! You just found out they’re looking for you, yet you rejected a variety of options for the last two years? Like … I really don’t understand Rishi’s timeline of events.”
Does Rishi’s Family Approve of Jen?
As Rishi continued to hide their engagement from his family, Jen decided to take matters into her own hands by telling his parents during the April 30, 2023, episode.
Jen, her friend Randi and Rishi were joined by a translator while meeting with his parents. During the gathering, Randi shocked Rishi when she explained she was there to support Jen amid their “pending engagement announcement.”
“If the translator wasn’t there I would be the first person translating and I would change the topic instantly,” Rishi said in a confessional. “But, I don’t know how to stop this conversation.”
Jen’s first question was asking Rishi’s mother, Shimla, how many proposals they looked into for her son.
“There were proposals long ago. We asked him, but he refused by saying, ‘Don’t look for it now,’” his mom explained through the translator. “We only talked about the girls. He did not see them.”
The translator went on to tell Rishi’s parents that he and Jen had a relationship and were planning to tie the knot and live together. As Rishi expected, his parents were left visibly shocked by the news, but, they “accepted” his choice at the moment.
However, after the family shared a private conversation and learned her age, their opinion changed.
“We don’t want him to marry an older girl,” his mom told producers in a confessional. “This does not happen in the culture of Rajasthan.” When speaking with Rishi, she added, “It’s a clear ‘no’ from my side.”
Following the airing of the scene, Jen took to Instagram to slam Rishi’s family for their “bullsh—t” in a scathing social media post.
“I know that a lot of people think me and my friends were very rude for going over to the family’s house,” she began in an Instagram Reel posted on May 2, 2023. While the TLC alum understood the backlash “to a certain degree,” she called out Rishi’s family for their criteria for his future wife.
“So he can’t marry a dark-skinned girl. She must not be short and she must be educated,” she said in the video. “So all you people, who think this family is so great — they don’t want a dark-skinned daughter-in-law.”
Jen continued to slam Rishi’s family in the caption. “HOW DARE I? HOW DARE MY FRIENDS? Because I could not possibly care less if this family accepts me,” she wrote. “Rishi gets to decide how to navigate this, but I’ll NEVER stop being me and calling out bulls–t & hypocrisy. Sorry I’m not sorry.”
Why Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Jen and Rishi Break Up?
Jen and Rishi broke up during the May 7, 2023, episode after his family expressed disapproval over her being 15 years older than him.
“I’m done,” Jen told Rishi after he revealed his parents’ feelings. “I don’t want to be in a relationship where the person doesn’t stand up for me.”
During a confessional, Rishi admitted he wasn’t willing to go against his family for Jen and said it was time for them to go their separate ways.
“It’s not gonna work out,” she told her before asking him to leave.
Jen added that she was “so hurt” and felt “numb,” though said in a confessional that she doesn’t believe “he ever set out to hurt me.”
“I think we just need to go our separate ways,” she told Rishi. “I think you need to let me go. … I really do love you, but there’s just things that are impossible to work through. It’s just not realistic.”
After Rishi left, he candidly spoke about how heartbroke he was. “It’s like an arrow in my heart – a very deep pain inside me,” he told the cameras. “I’m feeling like I’m totally alone in this world and hopeless.”
What Happened During the ‘90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Season 4 Tell-All?
The pair set the record straight about their relationship during the season 4 tell-all on May 21, 2023. While Jen and Rishi confirmed that they called off their engagement, they revealed that they rekindled their romance six months later when they were invited to the same wedding.
“I love him, I don’t know what’s gonna happen, but we’re not engaged,” Jen revealed about the current status of their relationship. “A lot of things would have to happen and I’m not confident they would happen.”
After Rishi admitted that he still considers himself engaged to Jen, she responded, “We’re still in touch, we still love each other. But there’s a lot of things that would have to happen for us to be engaged again. He would have to be willing to leave his mom’s house.”
“Here’s the thing, I’m not letting opportunities pass me by,” Jen told her costar, acknowledging that she is still with Rishi. “Like, let’s just say there’s an opportunity that may or may not have come up and I may or may not have given my phone number to somebody that, you know …”
After explaining that she found Julian’s protectiveness of Debbie attractive, she said that a relationship with him would be easier than what she has with Rishi. “I think to a certain extent, there is something to be said for someone who lives in the same country and whose family doesn’t already hate me,” Jen told Gabe. “It’s really tough.”
Following the special, Jen and Rishi reconciled after the reunion was filmed. Rishi seemingly confirmed their relationship status by sharing several photos with Jen via Instagram on May 29, 2023. “Love will find a way,” the TV personality captioned the photos.
Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Jen and Rishi Still Together?
Rishi confirmed his split from Jen on November 4, 2023, writing that he and Jen had “mutually decided to part ways.”
“This hasn’t been an easy decision by any measure, but we know it’s the right one at this point in our lives,” Rishi announced via Instagram. “The love and respect we have will always be, and our shared memories are forever. We part as life partners, but will remain platonic friends.”
The next day, Jen took to Instagram Live to share her side of the story and gave fans a summarized version posted on her Instagram Stories on November 6, 2023.
“Rishi blindsided me with a post saying we ‘mutually decided to end the relationship,’” she began in a lengthy statement. “He made this post WITHOUT consulting me. Since he used my name AND lied, I had to set the record straight.”
The Oklahoma native revealed she broke up with Rishi “several months ago” after her love had been “slowly dying.”
“He didn’t take it very well and I’m sorry for that. Less than a few months passed and he called to tell me he’s getting engaged so he can go on TV with someone,” she continued. “That was a gut punch BECAUSE it diminishes the special, REAL relationship we had. I told him I couldn’t be friends with him.”
While Jen said no names were mentioned, she added, “He alluded to someone with a bit part of part on another 90 day show. Never heard of her.”
“I wish him the best! I’m sure there are plenty of Indian girls his mother would approve of who can make the tea,” Jen concluded. “I’ve made the decision not to speak him name or anyone else I find out he is clout chasing and scheming with.”
Months later, Rishi went Instagram official with a new love interest, Maria Ramirez, in January 2024. Only one week after the big reveal, Rishi married Maria in a three-day wedding extravaganza. Jen has not publicly responded to her ex’s news as of publication.
