Fans are currently watching Paul and Karine’s relationship drama unfold on this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. On the show, the couple makes their move from Brazil to Kentucky, with their young son, Pierre. Paul is having a hard time finding a job, and Karine is threatening him by saying she’ll go back to Brazil with the baby if he can’t provide for the family. 

And while all this is playing out on TV, the couple is having much more serious issues in real life.
