Releasing a Statement
Natalia confirmed in October 2018 that he was still legally married, but separated at the time of filming season 2 of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. She also hinted that she and Ricky tried to reconcile their relationship after he returned from his trip to Colombia to meet two of his potential love interests, which was documented on the show.

Around that time, Natalia also shut down rumors that he faked his relationships with Melissa and Ximena, so they could use the 90 Day Fiancé franchise to get publicity for his film production company.

“Let me make one thing clear, I was not involved and never will be in this show. I knew he was going to Colombia, I was told the day before our anniversary, when I was already living somewhere else, that he was moving on,” Natalia wrote at the time.

“Had I known it was to this magnitude, I would have prepared myself. After his trip, there were lots of regrets and promises, so blame me for being dumb — but that is all I was. I gave a man I loved another chance,” Natalia added.

“There is not enough money in the world to justify doing that to her, or putting myself through this. Now — did he have feelings for her? 100 [percent] but as we have all seen, his feelings change rather quickly,” she noted.
Now, it looks like things are over between Ricky and Natalia as well. Hopefully, everything works out for the best.
