After their marriage, the issues between them only seemed to get worse until they led to their breakup four years later.


The couple have had several breakups over the course of their marriage, but it seems like they’re finally over now. The couple have two sons, Pierre and Ethan, after a series of miscarriages that shattered their relationship.

Their turbulent marriage had leaked video of their abusive relationship in front of their son and also saw their first son, Pierre Staehle, missing. However, he was later found in the company of his father, who eventually returned him to his grandparents due to their situation in Child Protection Services.

Paul Staehle quickly released an update just three days later on the course of his and Karine’s July 11 court hearing. He hopes that the court case will be completed in July and that best course of action will be taken. He also announced that it was very likely that the children would be with his parents while he and Karine found a way in life. Karine pretty much shared her own update on the custody process via her Instagram on Aug. 10. She told fans that she is not allowed to speak about the ongoing court case but that her children are still her top priority. She also slammed trolls for assuming she didn’t care about her children.

The custody battle over their two sons has been going on for over a month against Paul’s will. 90 day fiance Viewers have always thought the couple would be better off apart, but with two kids, the split doesn’t seem to be that easy. Fans hope the court’s decision is for the best for everyone involved, especially the kids.
