90 Day Fiancé’s Karine Martins Gets Protective Order Against Husband Paul Staehle
90 Day Fiancé’s Karine Martins is speaking out after obtaining a protective order against her husband, Paul Staehle.
Her statement came after Staehle wrote on his Instagram Story on Saturday that both Martins and their 16-month-old son Pierre were missing. He added that he was “scared” and “really upset” and also shared what appeared to be a restraining order that Martins had filed against him stating he could not come within 500 feet of her or their son.
The drama continued on Sunday when Staehle posted a video with the caption, “Recording Before Statement of Accusations Was Written” which shows a police officer talking with someone beyond the camera as well as footage of Staehle carrying Pierre in the background. In the video, Staehle is heard saying, “I have her on camera assaulting me, by the way. Just so you know.”
Martins addressed the situation on her own Instagram account on Sunday writing about her relationship with Staehle. In a since-expired story, she wrote, “All this past days I had a lot going on. I had issues where the police was called because I feared for my life and my son’s life which led me to ask for help and ultimately be rescued from an environment that no longer was healthy for none of us involved in the situation.”
She continued saying, “I’m getting the best help I could ever get and I’m really thankful for all the people involved in this.” She also thanked “people that worry about me.”
“Relationships are hard and sometimes it just can’t be fixed anymore. I need this time to organize my thoughts, work on myself and care for my son after everything we have been through in the last year and a half,” Martins said.
Martins’s and Staehle’s relationship was documented on TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days and 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. The couple got married in 2017 and welcomed their first child, Pierre, last May.
In November, Staehle announced on an Instagram Story that Martins had “started divorce proceedings.” Martins confirmed the announcement and told Us Weekly that she was “looking for a lawyer.”
