90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couple Avery Mills and Omar Albakour have launched an online business selling goods from the Middle East.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don’t want to find out any hints about whether Avery and Omar are still together before 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days finishes airing on TLC].
“Albakourkouture.com go shop!!!” Avery announced in an recent Instagram posting.
Avery and Omar, who recently wed on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, have named their online business Albakour Kouture.
The website reads, “Albakour Kouture is an online accessory store that’s built by a couple that found each other from 6,000 miles away. Omar is from Syria and Avery is from the United States. Avery traveled to Beirut, Lebanon to meet and marry Omar.”
“Avery fell in love with the beautiful handmade products made and sold in the middle east. Together they thought of Albakour Kouture an online store that will help people like you get your hands on one of kind items from the other side of the world!”
Albakour Kouture is currently selling mosaic boxes, jewelry — everything from rings to bracelets — purses, prayer rugs, Arabic wall art, and hijabs. However, many items appear to have already sold out.
Avery initially hinted she would be starting an online store in an Instagram Stories posting in late August.
“It’s an online store I am opening soon in Sha Allah… mostly selling accessories/fashion items from Middle East,” she wrote on the couple’s joint Instagram account.
“In Sha Allah” is not the name of a place or location but means “God willing” in Arabic.
Avery’s social-media postings have strongly suggested she and Omar are still married and living in Lebanon instead of Syria, as they originally intended.
Before opening the store, Avery had asked her followers what they’d like to see it carry, and they gave her suggestions that included prayer rugs and hand-made soap.
Avery also seemed to unintentionally disclose she was living in Lebanon at the time by replying, “That’s actually good. Lebanon has amazing olive oil soaps!!!”
The pair’s joint Instagram account is also filled with happy photos of the couple, with the most recent being a photo of Avery and Omar’s wedding rings on their hands on October 7.
“Itâ€™s been over a year since we met, time really flew by. Who wouldâ€™ve thought when we first met each other online how far we would go for each other. 6000 miles never stopped us,” Avery captioned the photo.
Avery, a 19-year-old former Christian who recently converted to Islam from Columbus, OH, and Omar, a 24-year-old Muslim man from Latakia, Syria, met on a Muslim dating app over a year ago.
Avery — who lived with her mom Teri, stepdad, five siblings and grandparents prior to meeting Omar — was a cheerleader and gymnast who dressed sexy and liked attention before she decided to flip her life upside down and convert to Islam in order to show off her inner rather than outer beauty.
Avery claims she had converted to Islam six months before meeting Omar, whom she thought had “a beautiful heart.”
Omar’s dating profile initially said he lived in America. However, Avery continued the relationship even after she found out Omar was living in Syria — despite concerns from her family that Omar was using her to escape a war in Syria and come to the U.S.
Avery was “already hooked,” and after just a month of talking, Omar asked Avery to marry him. He then sent Avery an engagement ring in the mail.
Avery then made plans to fly to Lebanon to finally meet her fiance in person and get married. The couple decided on Lebanon since it would be a safer, nicer place to meet for the first time.
Despite a U.S. travel ban on Syrian citizens, Avery hoped to bring Omar, a dental student, to the United States on a visa sometime in the next three years after they got married in Lebanon.
However in the meantime, Avery planned to live in Syria with Omar so they wouldn’t be apart for too long.
Despite cultural differences, Avery was shown marrying Omar on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. Their wedding took place on February 11, 2019.
Avery then broke the news to her mother, Teri, that she intended to move to Syria.
Teri, however, was prepared to do everything in her power to convince Avery to stay in the United States long-term.
“Now that I’ve met Omar, I’m glad she married him. I just don’t want her to live in Syria,” Teri told 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ cameras in a recent episode.
“When I get back to the United States, I’m going to do whatever I can to help him get a visa, but I don’t think she should move to Syria. I have a few months.”
The latest episode of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days ended with Avery crying over the idea of how much she’d miss Omar in the coming months. She thought they deserved to be together.
“I don’t need you to cry; I need you to talk to me. I’m not going to see you for months. I love you so, so much, and I know you love me. But I don’t want to be used,” Avery told her husband, her insisted he doesn’t get emotional over things.
“There’s always that one percent chance.”
Omar promised Avery that he wasn’t using her, and he assured his wife he’d be heartbroken to watch her leave.
