’90 Day Fiancé’: Asuelu Seems Unfazed Over Backlash About His Family as He Goofs off With Kalani
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Stars Asuelu Pulaa and Kalani Faagata have had some serious fights over money this season. The couple has been at odds with his Samoan family over their demands for cash. This sense of entitlement has shocked fans, but Asuelu’s recent social media posts show that he’s unfazed by the backlash.
Asuelu’s American and Samoan families have been at war on ’90 Day Fiancé’
During the current season of Happily Ever After?, fans have watched Asuelu struggle to provide for Kalani and their two boys. He only has a part-time job, and her parents have moved in to help.
At the same time, Asuelu’s mom Lesina and sister Tammy repeatedly demand that he send money to his family in Samoa. In the Samoan culture, adult children are expected to take care of their parents in retirement.
Kalani recently confronted Asuelu’s mom and sister during an episode of 90 Day Fiancé. She tried to explain that Asuelu’s responsibility is to his wife and kids, not his parents and siblings. But as Distractify points out, the conversation did not go well. Kalani appears to be at her breaking point.
“I’m here to tell you guys […] I just don’t know why you feel entitled to me and my family’s money,” Kalani told the duo. Lesina shockingly replied, “I’m sorry Kalani, I don’t care about the kids. I want to take back my son to Samoa to do his duty as before.”
Tammy tried to physically fight Kalani
Kalani confronted Tammy and Lesina after Asuelu broke down in front of his family over the money issue. She decided to talk to her in-laws alone so she could “try to talk some sense into them.” Her goal was to explain where she and Asuelu were coming from.
“I just always feels so bad for Asuelu to have a mom that literally only cares if you give her money, and he hasn’t been able to make his family see any reason,” Kalani said before the meeting.
Kalani went straight to the point and told Tammy and Lesina that she didn’t understand why they felt entitled to her and Asuelu’s money. She told them no matter how they feel, she ultimately had the final say.
But, Tammy and Lesina didn’t back down. After Lesina declared she didn’t care about Kalani and Asuelu’s kids, things got nasty and they started shouting. Tammy told Kalani she was lazy for not working and suggested she and Asuelu divorce.
“Wait till I see you, I’m gonna beat you up,” Tammy shouted while trying to jump on Kalani.
Asuelu doesn’t seem fazed by the ’90 Day Fiancé’ fan backlash
Despite his family members being at war with each other during every new episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Asuelu seems to be doing just fine. His Samoan family is quickly becoming one of the most hated in the show’s history, according to social media comments. But, Asuelu is having fun at home with Kalani.
Just because their relationship looks troubled now, it was not always that way. The couple posted a video that featured the husband and wife doing each other’s makeup. Asuelu did Kalani’s makeup first, and then she returned the favor. Unfortunately, his planned look for Kalani didn’t quite work out.
As Soap Dirt points out, when Asuelu was done, Kalani was ready for Halloween, not a runway. The result gave Asuelu and Kalani a good laugh. Asuelu had no trouble embracing his feminine side when his wife applied his makeup.
When she finished, Asuelu put on a wig and he looked like a Disney princess. Kalani called him “the hottest Moana” she’s ever seen.
