90 Day Fiance fans are well aware that Tiffany Franco and Ronald Smith’s marriage has been rocky at best.
Ronald being insanely jealous is only one of several problems that have led to messy, public fights.
Tiffany and Ronald are at it again, letting their mess play out both on and off of social media.
They say that they are getting a divorce — for real, this time.
If we sound a little wary of believing that this is for good, it’s because this is — at least — their third breakup this year.
Tiffany and Ronald had very public splits in May of this year and then again in July, reconciling both times.
We can’t even say “third time’s the charm,” because they’ve vowed to divorce before — last year. We’ll believe it when we see it.
We don’t just mean blocking and/or unfollowing each other. We mean posting receipts and ranting about each other.
Which, as you can see, is what is happening right now.
Ronald and Tiffany are once again taking shots at each other on Instagram.
Tiffany is asking if anyone can recommend a divorce attorney for an international marriage.
Ronald Smith spoke to In Touch Weekly about the split, confirming that it’s a breakup.
He shared that they have been fighting for “some time” beyond what we have seen.
They realized that they would both be happier and better off single.
“We are calling it quits,” Ronald shared.
He accused his wife: “She keeps pointing the finger at me.”
Notably, Ronald’s many disappointing choices and general failures to behave as a mature problem have caused ripples for a long time.
Ronald shared that he feels misunderstood, and not just by Tiffany.
“She says I’m seeking attention,” he noted, “but if I feel good about myself, I’m going to post a selfie.”
According to him, he was not the only one in their marriage who was insecure.
Ronald claimed that he was “not even allowed” to go work out at a gym.
“I assume because she doesn’t want me to look good for others,” he speculated.
“But I’m a married man,” Ronald added. “It’s not like that.”
The two have reconciled so many times, so of course he was asked if he could see that happening again.
“At the end of the day, I’m gonna call a spade a spade,” Ronald replied.
We’re not entirely sure how that saying applies here, but okay.
“As much as I love her and I care for her and she’s the mother of my kids,” Ronald affirmed.
He admitted: “I don’t know that I would even want to fix it.”
“I highly doubt it,” Ronald added. “I’m tired of holding back and keeping quiet.”
Tiffany also spoke to In Touch Weekly, confirming that they have “officially split” and that she’s ready to move on.
She is tired of waiting for Ronald to step up and become a good provider.
She is also addressing Ronald’s claims about her issues with what he posts to social media.
“The issue was that [Ronald] posts certain things whether it’s selfies or pictures of his truck,” Tiffany explained.
“And,” she continued, “he’s looking for a specific response.”
Tiffany explained that this was why she and Ronald had what was initially a small conflict that, of course, blew up into another breakup.
“I feel that it is my responsibility as his wife to help him when he’s down,” Tiffany stated.
“Unfortunately, [he’s] been down since I met him,” she accurately characterized.
“So,” Tiffany acknowledged, “it’s been 5 plus years of me supporting him with nothing in return.”
“Anytime we would go out to eat, I would pay,” Tiffany pointed out.
“Anytime we do anything, I would pay,” she added.
Ronald’s lack of impulse control and poor money management, despite becoming a father, weren’t just an act for the cameras.
Tiffany expressed: “I hate seeing him post captions looking for pity from everyone.”
She explained: “It is absolutely the wrong kind of attention!”
Tiffany added that she made every effort to “support everything he wants to do unless it’s irrational.”
Tiffany admitted that she does know better than to be “posting my business on Instagram, but he makes me feel crazy.”
She lamented that “he makes me question my reality.”
“No one knows the truth and I’m absolutely sick of it,” Tiffany expressed.
She has received some unflattering backlash from viewers for “complaining” about Ronald’s failures, but she’s over it.
“I don’t care anymore,” Tiffany declared. “He is a cancer that I need to get rid of immediately.”
“And,” she concluded, “I wish luck to whoever is his next victim.”
