Asuelu Pulaa and Kalani Faagata’s relationship

The couple met in 2016 when Faagata was vacationing in Pulaa’s native Samoa. Pulaa had been working at the resort where Faagata stayed when they crossed paths and hit it off.

Faagata started traveling to the country more and more to see Pulaa and soon became pregnant with their son, Oliver, who was born in late 2018. After settling in Utah, the pair went on to get married and had another son, Kennedy, in 2019.

Faagata has often complained that Pulaa doesn’t help her enough around the house, especially when it comes to their kids. Meanwhile, Pulaa tends to grouch about Faagata’s parents living with them.

Pulaa has been even more agitated because he wants to visit home with his family, but Kalani has refused due to a measles outbreak in Samoa. They instead decided to take a trip to California, but tensions arose during the car ride.

As Oliver started to cry, Pulaa moved to comfort him before remarking how “easy” it is to care for him. Asked if he thought all women’s jobs were easy or just his wife’s, he said, “Women’s job.”

The remark clearly irritated Faagata, but Pulaa wasn’t done. He went on to say that American women have it easier because they have machines to do everything while Samoan women are more traditional and do things without complaints.

Faagata then called him out for not helping more with their kids, causing him to call her a “lying b*tch.” He also criticized the sound of her voice, calling it “so f*cking annoying.” The situation died down as Faagata’s mom got involved, but the couple fought again when they reached their destination. Faagata called Pulaa a “manipulator,” but he didn’t want to hear any of her “expensive words” and stormed away.

Reactions to Asuelu Pulaa’s argument with Kalani Faagata

Twitter users were extremely critical of the argument. One fan seemed totally shocked by it, sharing a tweet that said, “Asuelu really verbally abused Kalani for ten minutes straight, culminating in him calling her a lying b*tch… I’m about to go through my TV and beat his f*cking a**.” Another argued, “Asuelu is a real piece of work. And by that, i mean he’s a real sexist piece of sh*t,” while a third fan said, “This scene with Kalani and Asuelu makes me want to get out of the car and I’m not even in the car.”

But others weren’t so quick to judge.

Someone else noted, “The man child was raised in Samoa, a remote island nation with a population of less than 200,000. He knows nothing about the real world. She went there, a virgin, met him, got pregnant and then brought him to USA. Is it any wonder he has no idea. They are both completely crazy.”

Another fan echoed that, writing, “She annoys me because she KNOWS the culture difference like bro he grew up in Samoa where things are different. YOU decided to have TWO babies with him and NOW decide to teach him and make him understand YOUR VALUES! Give me a break.”

Oof. Well stay tuned to 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? to see what happens from here.
