90 Day Fiancé star Debbie Aguero is looking for love and she seemingly found it in sunny Miami, Florida! The mother of one was swept off her feet by Ruben Sanchez, affectionately nicknamed “Ruben the Cuban,” and viewers are curious if the duo are still together after filming season 4 of 90 Day: The Single Life in 2024.

How Did ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Debbie and Ruben Meet?

After a few unsuccessful attempts at love, Debbie met the 58-year-old, who she says is “sweet like dark rum,” on a dating site and traveled to Florida to meet him in person for the first time. Unfortunately, her adult son Julian, who is also a police officer, refused to allow her to take the trip to meet the potential suitor alone. Debbie agreed to let Julian accompany her on the trip.

“But if it’s the only way that it can bring peace, I guess I’ll just have to accept him going. He doesn’t want history to repeat itself,” she explained during the February 5, 2024, episode of 90 Day: The Single Life, referring to her past relationship with Oussama Berber. “But I don’t want him to get involved in anything that isn’t his business.”

Julian previously expressed his concern for his mom’s “hot date” in Miami on the January 22, 2024, episode, saying he was worried Debbie was “flying off the seat of her pants” with excitement. Despite his concern that Debbie was rushing into a new relationship too quickly, he added that his mom was a “great woman” and that he wanted her to find love.

Which 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After Season 8 Couple Is Your Favorite?

After the season aired, new details emerged of Debbie and Ruben’s first meeting when a source exclusively told In Touch in April 2024 that the Georgia native faked her relationship with Ruben for TLC cameras. According to messages exclusively viewed by In Touch, Debbie was on a dating website seeking someone specifically to “play the part” of her romantic interest on the reality TV franchise.

“It’s been tough with this online dating thing to find anyone halfway decent for this film date … I need to find someone somewhat presentable … If you can help me out or even yourself for this reality show, I would appreciate it, I just want to finish up the filming and have no expectations what so ever,” she wrote to Ruben in the screenshots, highlighting the benefits of the “15 minutes of fame.” “Just appear to be interested in me and convince the producer that you might like to get to know me.”

What Happened on Debbie’s First Date With Ruben?

Debbie is known for her eccentric style and Ruben seemed to be her perfect match as they both showed up in colorful ensembles for their first date.

“I mean, Ruben almost made me look conservative,” she joked to the cameras. Meanwhile, Ruben liked that Debbie was as fun and eclectic as him, telling producers in a private confessional that she was “alive, vibrant and not boring.”

After a night of drinks and dancing, the pair seemed to also be aligned in their dating goals as they were both looking for a long-term relationship and not a “fling.” The night ended with a goodnight kiss between Debbie and Ruben, with the pair agreeing to see each other the next day.

Debbie told her son that Ruben made her “feel like a teenage girl” and that she was considering a future with him during the show’s February 12, 2024, episode. Ruben also agreed to meet Julian after Julian promised not to be “hard on him.”

On the show’s February 19, 2024, episode, Debbie and Ruben went on their second date. Ruben informed Debbie that he is the primary caretaker for his parents and introduced ​her to them. He explained that due to his responsibilities in caring for them, Debbie would eventually need to move to Miami.

How Did Julian’s Meeting With Ruben Play Out?

Julian met Ruben for the first time and discussed his mom’s dating habits during the February 26, 2024, episode. “Mom gets caught up in the moment with all this stuff,” Julian explained. “She’s excited, she’s having fun, she likes this guy. But she fails to ask the important questions. I want to make sure that he knows that I’m on guard this time for my mom, and I want to start asking the hard questions. Because if you plan to be with somebody, you need to know the whole thing that’s going on.”

One of Julian’s hard-hitting questions was about whether or not Ruben had ever been in trouble with the law. Ruben assured Debbie’s son that he had not had legal troubles in the past. Meanwhile, it was Ruben who was left concerned after the conversation, as Julian told him about Debbie’s past with Oussama.

During her previous relationship, which was documented on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way in 2023, Debbie uprooted her life and moved to Morocco to be with Oussama. Things in their relationship became strained shortly after she arrived, though, and Oussama even asked her to move back to the United States without him. They split during the May 7, 2023, episode and Debbie later confirmed that they would not be reconciling.

On The Single Life, Ruben was surprised to hear about Debbie’s history and she was shocked when he confronted her with the information, as she didn’t know Julian had shared that part of her story. Debbie assured Ruben that her relationship with Oussama was over and insisted that there was nothing between them. However, she did confirm that she still sends money to her ex’s parents.

Are ‘90 Day Fiance’ Stars Debbie and Ruben Still Together?

Ruben and Debbie are seemingly not together. In Touch exclusively confirmed that Ruben filed a police report in Miami Dade County, Florida, against the 90 Day Fiancé alum for cyber harassing and stalking on April 12, 2024.

Ruben additionally called Debbie out on his own Instagram account on April 18, 2024, writing in part, “Recently Ms. Aguero started a malicious campaign of accusations and defamation against me.” He continued, “Beware of Debbie Aguero, who portrays herself as a healer and advocate for well-being every Monday on her Instagram posts. However, it’s becoming evident that her true motivations are driven by self-interest, regardless of who she harms in the process.”

Things were at least cordial between the two as of March 11, 2024, when Ruben shared photos from Debbie’s Miami trip via social media.

“Miss Debbie in Little Havana, USA enjoying the vibes with Ruben The Cuba,” he captioned a February 7, 2024, snap on Instagram. Ahead of the March 11, 2024, episode of The Single Life, he also posted additional footage with Debbie on his Instagram page.
