Are Paul Staehle and Karine Martins still together? That's what 90 Day Fiancé fans are wondering. After being introduced to the couple during Season 1 of the TLC spin-off 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, fans were skeptical that the couple would make it down the aisle — especially because Paul was very open about the fact that he was hiding a pretty big secret from his fiancée. But now, it seems like they definitely won't go through with their wedding because Paul and Karine have split.
Paul documented their split on his Facebook page before he deleted his account, according to Starcasm. The drama began after Paul posted a comment announcing to his fans that Karine will be deleted her Facebook account because men had been sending her sexually explicit photos. “Karine Martins told me tonight she may delete her Facebook over all the penis pictures she is receiving,” he wrote.
But it seems like Karine may have responded to one of the suitors, and Paul followed up with a statement that alluded to Karine being unfaithful to him, and as a result, he canceled the GoFundMe campaign that he set up for her so that she could visit her family for the holidays. "One thing I will not tolerate is cheating. Due to recent events [the] GoFundMe page is canceled," Paul wrote, and he said that Karine deleted Paul on Facebook before he deleted his account.

This isn't the first time the couple publicly documented their split on social media. Back in October, Paul also accused Karine of cheating on him. According to screenshots obtained by Starcasm, Karine had been communicating with a man named Alex, and he put Karine on blast by sharing a photo of her phone with Alex's contact info.
“When you love someone you don’t call or talk about sex with another man. Or blow up another man’s phone," Paul captioned the photo of Karine's phone, and then he added the comments: “Karine told me I am bad and she loves Alex.”
Shortly after Paul shared the photo on Facebook, Karine took to her private Instagram page to defend herself. "I think in the past a very bad person has hurt Paul’s feeling that even I can not help him. I tried. Not for interests. But for finding a Paul a good person. God knows what is best for each person," she wrote in Portuguese, translated via Google.
Up until the cheating scandal, Karine and Paul were friends on Facebook, and Paul had liked all of Karine's selfies — but they both deleted their profiles after the drama unfolded. It seems like whatever happened between them might play out in a future season of 90 Day Fiancé because, in a cryptic Facebook post shared last month, Paul explained to his friends and fans that he is unable to post any updates about his life or his relationship with Karine. This lead many to believe that the couple is currently filming for the TLC series, which means that fans will be able to follow along on their love story as Karine comes to the United States on K-1 Visa.
"Due to current filming and production to secure many show details and secrets, our social media will be extremely limited on public posts," he wrote. "Remember this is reality TV. Anything can change at any time. I will post bonus videos of everything up until this point that has aired. And pictures from my past."
