The new 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way season has just started and already the stand out couple that has captured viewers’ hearts are Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier. They are the first male same sex couple on the franchise and appear to be very likable and genuine. The couple discuss their excitement of starting their lives together, as Kenneth prepares for his big move to Mexico where Armando lives with his young daughter, Hannah.
Armando admits he has concerns about telling his tight- knit family about his new relationship as well as moving four hours away with his daughter. His family seems to have been a major support system and integral part in his daughter’s life, especially since losing his ex-wife in a car crash, as he explained in the first episode. Armando recently went more in depth, discussing further details of the tragic event.
As with most of the cast of 90 Day Fiance, the internet investigators began digging into the story of Armando’s ex-wife’s death, and newspaper articles of the crash began to circulate. He didn’t share too much on the show, but Armando took to his Instagram to personally explain further details of the event and possibly squash any rumors or conspiracy theories. The fan account 90dayfiancenews shared screenshots from two of Armando’s Instagram Stories
Armando explained that even though they had been separated because of her “anger issues”, they were working to “rebuild a friendship”. He added, “during the divorce proceedings and on the evening of her passing a disagreement took place over fiannces.” Armando recalled, “I thought it would be best to leave the situation and return back to my home.”

He shared, “As I was driving down the highway and I was shocked when I was suddenly struck from behind and then hit again.” It took a minute to process his car was being hit by his ex.
Armando recalled, “before I knew it she lost control of her vehicle and passed away on the scene.”
Though he had discussed his ex wife’s death on the show, the extra bit he hadn’t mentioned was that she had been pregnant at the time, and the baby did not survive the crash. Armando included that “this was a very difficult time for all involved, myself, our family, and friends, and had been a long grieving process” and asks fans for “empathy and understanding on this personal tragedy”.
