“90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way” Star Karine Martins Confirms Split From Husband Paul Staehle Days After the Couple’s Home is “Severely Burglarized”

“At least our latest drama doesn’t involve CPS…this time!”

It looks like (more) trouble in paradise for 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way couple Paul Staehle and Karine Martins… 

Karine reportedly confirmed to Us Weekly on Tuesday that she and Paul are heading for divorce, and that she is “looking for a lawyer now.”

Karine’s comment comes one day after Paul revealed on social media that Karine planned to file for divorce.

Paul’s announcement came in the form of an Instagram story featuring a crying GIF and a message in Portuguese claiming that Karine had started divorce proceedings in Manaus, Brazil.

Paul’s post was followed by a video of he and Karine’s seven-month-old son, Pierre, with Paul stating “daddy’s gonna miss you” in the background. 

On Tuesday night, Paul spoke more on social media about he and Karine’s split, informing followers that he “will be unbookable” for Cameos for the time being as he may be traveling soon. 

“I will probably go up [to] the Amazon to try to convince [Karine] to live with Pierre in [the] USA with or without me,” he added. “I just want the best possible life for my son.” 

Just last week, Paul and Karine shared on social media that their home in Brazil had been burglarized and “everything of value” had been taken.

“I discovered today that our home was severely burglarized in Manaus…. They entered my balcony door and took everything of value… even Karine[‘s] stuffed animal collection,” Paul wrote on Instagram. “My stuff, Pierre’s stuff, Karine’s stuff … I am devastated.” 


After the incident, Karine said the family was “fine, that’s what matters now.” 

In his lengthy Instagram story on Tuesday, Paul said he and Karine would not be creating a GoFundMe as a result of the burglary, nor would they be “filing any type of insurance claim” for damages. 

The news of Paul and Karine’s possible split isn’t the only drama the couple has faced this year. In September, they were exonerated following a Child Protective Services investigation regarding the well-being of Pierre, whom Karine gave birth to in March. The investigation began after a video uploaded to social media sparked concern from followers due to the condition of Karine and Paul’s home. 


Paul also spoke of a possible split between he and Karine in September when he claimed in a now-deleted Facebook post that their marriage was over. 

“Karine asked me to remove our photos. And let everyone know that she doesn’t want me in her life,” his post read, adding that he had received a call from Karine’s divorce lawyer. 


Earlier that month, he hinted that there were issues in the marriage by posting an Instagram poll gauging his followers’ thoughts “out of curiosity.” The poll asked followers if they believed a wife should divorce a husband “over his mother buying gifts daily spoiling their son” and if a grandmother should “be banned from seeing her grandchildren over spoiling them and a husband be divorced for defending his mother’s actions.” 

Paul and Karine first appeared on Season One of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in 2017. The couple tied the knot the same year.

  1. So this thief walked out of the house with his arms full of stuffed animals? I wonder if they stole his moms lock of hair??

  2. Huh. Well you know what they say about two people who don’t speak each others language, jump into a serious relationship, have zero trust in one another, yet have a baby and get married…? (And still don’t speak eachothers language!!!!)

  3. Neither one of these two idiots know how to adult and I have zero sympathy for either of them. She was telling him she wanted a baby even before they got married (red flag?), she was talking to all kinds of dudes before they got married (red flag #2?), they don’t even speak the same language at all, so how did they “fall in love”. Also, I don’t buy that they were robbed for one second. Houses that are vandalized aren’t that cleaned out. There’s usually stuff thrown around and it’s generally a mess, those photos just look like someone recently packed up to move out. Burglars have absolutely no need, nor the time, nor the room, for stealing stuffed animals. This is just another pathetic attempt from these two allergic-to-jobs slobs, looking for sympathy and a hand out.

  4. This poor guy and the one that ended up in Ecuador (LOL!) had the same story. Both complete idiots chasing after women who never even showed the slightest concern for them, let alone love. Can’t even feel sorry for them because they were so amazingly stupid.

  5. I think they both need to grow up get counseling Paul stop with the jealous crap she has never done anything to you for you not to trust her. Think you live in the past cannot let go of it blaming her not letting her have male friends crazy she has done nothing wrong. I think you need a lot of help to grow up both of you counseling job’s stop living off your mom and dad get a job are 2 lazy.

    1. Kim .. She has some very good friends and they all understand send money. No man is going to sit back while his wife and the mother of his child begs for money and neither should he be expected to.

  6. None of them are fit parents. Karine thought she found an American guy who would provide for her and get her out of her poor village. Paul thought she found a hot woman who’s poor enough to put up with his bullshit. Both had a rude awakening. Paul is neither rich nor a gentleman, Karine’s neither submissive nor thankful. Add a child to this mess and the result is a disaster.

  7. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
    I knew this was never going to last. Karine’s answer to every little problem was divorce. Everyone has problems and must work together on them. I feel sorry for Paul, he will probably never get to have a life with his son . You would think Karine would realize how much better of a life for her son in america

  8. Granted Paul is a nut job, but Karine’s a real piece of work. To be a married woman soliciting and accepting money from men online is inappropriate behavior. Not a fan of Paul, but whenever he asked her about it, she acted as though it was none of his business and refused to discuss it, or worse, stop doing it. I don’t believe that their apartment was really burglarized. I think Karine’s family removed everything and tried to stage it as a burglary. Feel badly for their innocent child who likely will be raised deep in the Amazon jungle, and will need a translator app to communicate with his father if Paul is even allowed to maintain a relationship with his son.
