Split? Paola Mayfield’s Manager Confirms Paola & Husband Russ Are “Taking a Break” From Their Marriage, Days After Paola Hinted About a Breakup

“We’re like the new Ross and Rachel!”

Just a few days after Paola Mayfield hinted on Twitter that things with her husband Russ were less-than-stellar, her manager has confirmed that the 90 Day Fiance stars are putting their marriage on hold. Following the confirmation, Paola continued to shade her hubby on social media.

According to Paola’s manager Dominique Enchinton, Russ and Paola are “on a break” and are not seeking a divorce…yet. Dominique stated that the couple’s decision to move into an RV with their son Axel contributed to the strain in their marriage.

“During this pandemic, it’s hit everyone very hard, especially couples who have had to stay indoors with each other 24/7,” she told In Touch Weekly on Friday. “…It’s definitely taken a toll on both of them being in each other’s faces, so they are going to be taking a break for a little bit.”

To add to the stress, Russ was apparently laid off from his job due to the pandemic.

“Paola was the sole breadwinner for the past year,” Dominique said of Paola, who works as a fitness coach and pro wrestler.

Earlier this week, Paola made sure her social media followers knew that something was wrong in her marriage. On Wednesday, she tweeted that, “Part of the reason why relationships end is that we get caught up in other things, forget to appreciate one another, and sadly, marriage isn’t a priority anymore.”

She continued the social media vague-posting by following it up with a tweet that she later posted to her Instagram account.

“People asked me why I don’t take pictures with my husband, and my answer is… I just don’t like to pretend #youareguessingright,” she wrote, obviously addressing the followers on Instagram who have asked her why she hasn’t posted a pic of Russ since July 6.

Despite Paola’s hinting that she and Russ have split, her manager insists that they are trying to save their marriage.

“They are not getting a divorce yet,” the manager told In Touch Weekly. “They are still together. They are just taking a break and going to therapy to work through the issues.”

Paola continued to throw shade at Russ via social media, though. On Saturday, when someone tweeted to her that she’s planning to “throw [Russ] away and collect child support” for Axel, Paola clapped back.

“How? I’m the only working lol!” she wrote.

“Not gonna lie…that one stung a bit.”

Russ and Paola starred on the first season of “90 Day Fiance” back in 2014. Paola, who is originally from Colombia, married Russ in October 2013. The couple welcomed their son Axel in January 2019. They have appeared on multiple “90 Day Fiance” spin-offs in the years since their debut.

Paola’s manager also addressed nay-sayer’s claims that Paola was done with Russ now that she has her green card.

“One thing we do want to address is that Paola has been getting a lot of backlash from people on her social media, and that’s something we don’t appreciate,” her manager told the magazine. “A lot of people are saying that she was in it for the green card, but Paola has had her green card for over five years already so that’s not true.”

Paola shared similar sentiments on Twitter on Saturday.

“When people tell me to move back to my country (typical)…The United States is my country now. #uscitizen #iknowmytrue,” she wrote.

Paola’s manager told In Touch Weekly that things between Paola and Russ are amicable.

“They love each other very much and have nothing bad to say about one another; they respect each other,” she said. “A lot of couples have gone through this. There is no animosity or anything like that.”

Russ has yet to really speak out on the “break” he and Paola are on. However, on Sunday, he showed his followers that he was leaving Florida, which is where he and his family have been living.

“Peace out Florida!” he captioned a photo of a plane taking off.

  1. I’m more surprised it lasted this long…I didn’t think they would last more than 3 years, and I really didn’t think they would make a baby.

  2. I hope that he realizes that life without her is a lot easier and files for divorce. She was AWFUL to him. She always refused to compromise and she allowed her friend to constantly belittle him. He’s better off without her.

    1. I totally agree! Why these men let these women berate and act so awful…while they use them. She go her green card I bet. Karine same way, ugh.

  3. Red flags before they got married: russ did not get along with paos friends, pao did not get along with russ’ family or friends. They have a language (primary language) barrier and cultural barrier. Pao couldn’t compromise with Russ on where to live. That’s a big issue. She wasn’t interested in moving anywhere but Miami. I personally wouldn’t want to live in Oklahoma either but maybe they could have lived somewhere else along the Gulf of Mexico with a diverse population so Pao could have made Colombian friends and Russ could have potentially kept his job. Instead he was forced to move to Miami, which he had a hard time getting a job in and didn’t fit in to the culture as he’s quite conservative. Houston TX could have been a compromise.

  4. Wow, Russ, you ditched your baby?? That’s cold! They must not have any intention of trying to work it out for the sake of their very young son.

      1. Russ said he was leaving Florida. Pao I’m sure has no intention of leaving Miami, and the baby will be staying with her. Two-year-olds don’t understand “taking a break,” they only know Daddy is gone. Russ always seemed like he would stick with his kid, even if he wasn’t with Pao.

    1. I’m in the process of finally leaving after 15 years. Believe me, my son would have been better off if we’d called it quits when he was young.

      1. Good for you. It’s a tough move to make, no matter what the circumstances. Sending strength and peace to you and your family. 🙏🏻

  5. Color me shocked. NOT. I’m just surprised it took this long. If she wouldn’t have forced him to move to Miami, so she could ‘model’ 😂 , they’d be living in his house, which definitely seemed nice enough. But she hates Russ’ mom and it was her ‘dream’ to live in Miami, so I guess that means Russ is supposed to quit his job so they can go where women that look like her are a dime a dozen. I do gotta admit it though, Pao has an amazing body. But so do most Latina women in Miami. Everything was always about Pao. Hopefully Russ finally had enough, and feeds that kid a steak, or some chicken. A baby/toddler shouldn’t be forced to not eat meat because his mother doesn’t want him to.

  6. Paola is definitely NOT the worst cast member, I agree Angela takes that trophy!
    Paola and Russ definitely don’t make a good couple.
    They’ve been trying since 2013!
    It’s time to just let it go. It’s sad they had a baby but why fight and hate each other in front of him.
    Don’t make it worse for that adorable little boy.

    1. If I had to live in an RV with someone, I don’t care if it’s someone I’m madly in love with, throw a 2 year old toddler in the mix and it’s bound to get ugly. My son is 2 months younger than Axel and if us and his dad had to live in an RV, I don’t know how long it would be before one of us snapped. Pao could save a lot of $$$ by not having a MANAGER though, who does she think she is?! She was on a reality show obviously not making much $$ if they were living in an RV.

    1. Russ was always in need of growing a spine. Hopefully he can find someone who is perfectly content living in a house where he can get a stable job.

      I don’t know what to say about Paolo. She was pretty, but nothing special and the way she treated Russ just made her *ugly* to me. And living in a RV isn’t ideal, but maybe someone should give up those dreams of being a model? She could have just as easily tried to become an influencer back when she first appeared, without paying for a “manager” (unbelievable this lady), and she could have done that from anywhere they lived!

  7. Paola has always been self absorbed and entitled. I’m sure even before she met Russ. It’s horrible how her selfies just have the baby as a prop.Golddigger was scouting for someone to give her a better life and Russ took the bait. I doubt it was Russ’s idea to go on 90DF. Paola will quickly find someone better than Russ and someone to support 💰 her lifestyle.

  8. “They love each other very much and have nothing bad to say about one another; they respect each other,” she said. “A lot of couples have gone through this. There is no animosity or anything like that.”

    Oh. Good, I will just ignore all the social media passive-aggressive digs that Paola seems so fond of. I personally do not think that she was “in it for the green card”. But, like nearly all of the couples in the 90 day franchise, they seem to be somewhat of a mismatch.
