’90 Day Fiancé’: Asuelu Is Missing From the Tell-All Special in New ‘Happily Ever After?’ Sneak Peek

It’s almost time for the tell-all special for the fifth season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? All couples are supposed to attend to discuss the recent season and whether their relationships were able to survive all the drama that happened on the show. But in a preview for the upcoming program, Kalani Faagata was seen without her husband Asuelu Pulaa.

Asuelu’s apparent absence comes after plenty of drama that played out on ’90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?’

Much of the drama began earlier in the season when Asuelu’s family asked Asuelu and Kalani for $1,000. His mom Lesina and sister Tammy explained that as a Samoan man, Asuelu has a responsibility to support his parents. But Kalani told them that they were already struggling and could not offer up such a large amount of money.

Despite having other financial obligations, Asuelu still tried to find a way to give his family the money they’d requested, sparking a back-and-forth between him and Kalani. Eventually, they were able to reach an agreement where they would give his family $100 and a few gifts. But Lesina and Tammy still weren’t satisfied.

They started accusing Kalani of “controlling” Asuelu and preventing him from taking care of them in the way he did before he married Kalani. The drama became so intense that Tammy even tried to attack Kalani when she once again refused to give them money.

The fighting began to take a serious toll on Asuelu and Kalani’s relationship

When Kalani went to talk to Asuelu about the blowout with Tammy, Asuelu seemed to side with his family and suggested that she needed to control herself. His response frustrated her to the point that she began to question their relationship and whether she wanted to stay married to Asuelu.

Things only got worse when they were forced to quarantine together amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Kalani admitted that Asuelu had still been going out as if a virus was not going around and would lie about his whereabouts when asked. Fearing that he would contract the virus and expose their kids, she kicked him out of their home.

The most recent episode showed him packing and heading to his mom’s home in Washington on a one-way ticket while Kalani continued to mull over divorce.

“I don’t know when he’s coming back because this is not working. It’s not working anymore,” she said in a confessional.
