If Azan really wanted to marry Nicole (the consensus is that he did not), there was no mandate that it cost $6,000 to do it. Get the paperwork in order, permission from a judge, then, take the papers to the adoul who collects the mahr, explains the nikah contract, then, registers the marriage with the state. Bam! They're married. It ain't that hard. She didn't do her homework and he straight up lied to her about what was involved.
