Karine Martins fled Paul Staehle’s home with Baby Pierre, and filed an alarming police report that made some serious claims against Staehle. 

The 90 Day Fiancé star claimed she didn’t feel safe with Staehle. She claimed that Staehle physically assaults her, and that he has forced her to perform oral sex. 

“If I refuse he throw things, he yells, or he threats to call police, he currently hold my green card and all my documents. I am not allowed to leave the house, he monitor my phone [and] he have cameras around the house and he can see through his phone who arrives or who leaves. He threats take our son Pierre away if I ever leave [sic],” wrote Martins in her report.

Martins later took to Instagram to inform friends and fans that she’s safe with Pierre and that the police know where to find her. 

“I’m getting the best help I could ever get and I’m really thankful for all the people involved in it. I also thank all the people that worry about me for the support I have had. It have been a big part of my recovery [sic],” she added.

Paul Staehle travels to Brazil without ‘90 Day Fiancé’ wife

Paul Staehle has insinuated that Karine Martins is pregnant with their second child. Staehle claims it’s because of this that he’s been visiting Brazil. The 90 Day Fiancé star took to Instagram to reassure fans that he’s not chasing Martins in Brazil. 

90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates screencapped the post to Staehle’s story, in which he explained his visit. Staehle’s visit comes after Martins claimed she fears him taking retribution against her out on her family members.

“For everyone thinking I am chasing Karine in Brazil. Karine is in Indiana USA. I came here alone to clean and organize our Brazil home. It needs to be sanitary and baby safe. I have been keeping busy since she left,” wrote Staehle. 

He added, “Next court date is now in December. I will not see my sons for a very long time. So I am keeping busy and constructive. Karine is not in Brazil. I knew that when I traveled here.”

Staehle then went on to bemoan not being able to see his son and possibly missing his next child’s birth.

90 Day Fiancé fans have been largely suspicious of Paul Staehle after Karine Martins left his home. Many have been referencing his erratic behavior in the past, including his use of surveillance cameras in his home. 

“Putting up hidden cameras in the place i’m sure,” wrote one Instagram user.

“So you travel to another country just to clean an apartment….yup I call BULLSH*T!” added another fan of the show.

“Did anyone else LOL reading where he said he was cleaning and sanitizing his home in Brazil like he did in the US?! The place they show on tv is super messy, bed always unmade, trash bags as curtains and his mother even mentioned the amount of flies in there when she visited,” pointed out another user.
