Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa were first introduced on season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé after welcoming baby No. 1 shortly into their relationship. Since tying the knot in September 2018, the couple hit several rough patches in their marriage, with their most recent issues being showcased on the spinoff, 90 Day: The Last Resort.
During the series, which premiered in August, Kalani revealed that Asuelu cheated on her while on a trip to visit his dad in Samoa. In an effort to settle the score, the Samoa native offered her a “hall pass” to kiss someone outside their marriage.
The California native later admitted to developing deep feelings for her “hall pass” and also dropped the bombshell that Asuelu cheated on her throughout their entire relationship, including her two pregnancies.
While fans watched as Kalani asked Asuelu for a divorce on the season finale, most are wondering if that was really the end of the TLC couple’s marriage.
How Long Have Kalani and Asuelu Been Together?
Kalani and Asuelu made their 90 Day Fiancé debut on season 6 of the TLC flagship series. They met while Kalani was on vacation in Asuelu’s native country of Samoa, and he worked at the resort where she was staying. They quickly got pregnant and welcomed baby No. 1, son Oliver, in January 2018. Shortly after, they began the process for Asuelu’s K-1 visa so he could move to the United States and they could be a family.
Almost immediately, Kalani’s family was skeptical of her relationship with Asuelu, and things worsened when Kalani learned she was pregnant again and expecting baby No. 2 with Asuelu shortly after he arrived in America. Asuelu was able to earn the blessing of Kalani’s mom, Lisa, and dad, Low, by promising he would step up and provide for his family of four, and the couple wed during a romantic sunset ceremony on a boat in California.
What Happened to Kalani and Asuelu on ‘90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?’
The couple continued to share their journey on season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Kalani and Asuelu were struggling to see eye to eye over money and their relationship. Kalani also felt Asuelu wasn’t doing his part as a husband or a father as she struggled to adjust to being a mom of two, having given birth to son Kennedy in May 2019. During a particularly heated fight, Asuelu called Kalani a “bitch” — which upset her family and they no longer supported their marriage.
Kalani decided to stay with Asuelu to work out their issues, but they faced another test when they visited Asuelu’s family in Washington. During their trip, which took place in the 2019 holiday season, Asuelu’s mom, Lesina, and sister, Tammy, pressured him to send money back home to his family in Samoa. Asuelu worked a part-time job at a local grocery store at the time and was struggling to provide for his family of four at the time, but Lesina and Tammy felt Kalani was the reason why Asuelu didn’t want to financially help them.
The fight over money reached a peak when Tammy and Lesina confronted Kalani, and Tammy threatened to “beat” Kalani “up.” The fight led to an argument between Kalani and Asuelu and before they headed back to their home in Utah, which they share with Kalani’s parents, Kalani admitted she no longer wanted to be married to her husband.
She had a change of heart after they got back home when Asuelu agreed to go to couple’s counseling. Therapy seemed to help, but the couple were on the rocks again when the coronavirus pandemic reached a peak in the United States in spring 2020. Kalani felt Asuelu was not adhering to social distancing guidelines and putting their children and her mom and dad at risk, so she sent him to go live with his mom and sister for several weeks.
It was a shock when Kalani and Asuelu filmed the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 5 reunion together. Asuelu was back and living with his wife, their two kids and her parents but he was still not on good terms with Kalani.
They seemed to be in a better place both in their marriage and financially when they returned for 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever Afer? season 6 in April 2021, as Asuelu had taken a job as a rideshare driver, but they still were facing communication issues. They were even looking to buy a house so they could move out of Kalani’s parents’ home, and they felt it would help save their marriage if they were in a place of their own.
But the couple realized they couldn’t afford to move out, which led to more tension because they also struggled with intimacy issues. Kalani tried to express her wants and needs, which led to a big fight and she even consulted with a divorce lawyer to discuss her options. Unfortunately, shortly after their argument, Asuelu got into a car accident and his near-death experience served as a “wakeup call” for the couple. They vowed to work on their marriage and they even took a romantic getaway trip to reconnect.
Things took another turn when they clashed over whether or not to have another baby, as Asuelu wanted to grow their family but Kalani did not want to get pregnant again. Amid their tension, Asuelu’s family threatened to drive an even bigger wedge between them when they visited them for Christmas 2020. Things came to a head during an August 2021 episode when a huge brawl broke out between Kalani and her sister Kolini and Tammy and Lesina.
When Did Kalani and Asuelu First Spark Split Rumors?
Asuelu’s last mention of him calling Kalani his spouse on social media happened in March 2022 on a family trip to Hawaii.
After a fan asked him where his “beautiful wife” was, Asuelu shared a TikTok video that he also posted on Instagram of himself, Kalani, their kids and her sister Kolini enjoying the waves of the Aloha State.
“Yes, we here with my family,” he told his followers, before calling Kalani “my baby.”
The couple returned on the season 3 premiere of 90 Day Diaries in March 2022. Unfortunately for them, they continued to struggle with communication issues and got into a huge fight. The pair were gearing up to sell their Utah home and Kalani felt Asuelu wasn’t pulling his weight when it came to the household duties. Following the episode, the pair were no longer following each other on social media and Kalani blasted her husband on Instagram for allegedly blocking her.
In June 2022, Asuelu posted a lengthy message on Instagram, writing that after people kept asking where Kalani was on his social media of late, his response was “IDK.”
“[She] don’t wanna join my Live, she doesn’t want film TikTok with me. She’s different from how she used to be. She doesn’t wanna go out with me. Everything she needs I supply for her, [especially] the boys,” he wrote, pointing to a potential split.
Asuelu added that he had “a lot to say,” but he couldn’t at the time because he is “under the contract.”
“I wanna have my own space but she … doesn’t want to communicate anymore,” he continued. “Hopefully, we sell this house very soon so I can go back to work.”
To add to the speculation, Asuelu said he was “single” while showing off his impressive weight loss via TikTok in June 2022.
Split speculation continued that month when In Touch exclusively confirmed that the couple’s Utah home, which was purchased by Kalani and her father in June 2018, was placed for sale the previous month.
The following month, Kalani seemed to hint at a split from her husband while reflecting on her family’s move from Utah to California. “Life looks a lot different than what I had planned,” the mom of two shared on November 13, alongside a compilation of photos and videos of fun outings with her two sons. “Here’s to us learning to go with the flow.”
However, by December 2022, the couple seemingly shut down split rumors with a flurry of social media activity. On December 16, Asuelu shared several photos and videos via his Instagram of him, Kalani and their children reuniting at a California hotel following his trip to Samoa. In one clip, Kalani could be heard asking their boys, “Who is it?” as they excitedly opened to door to greet their father.
On December 20, Asuelu seemingly confirmed that he and Kalani are still together while posting a sweet photo of the family of four posing in front of a Christmas tree. “Christmas mania and crazy massage ❤️🎄😘 @kalanifaagata,” he wrote in his Instagram caption. Despite the holiday post being later deleted, the pair seemingly enjoyed a date night ahead of the new year as Asuelu shared a photo of the two clinking glasses on December 30.
What Happened to Kalani and Auselu During ‘90 Day: The Last Resort’?
It was then revealed in the shocking August 2023 premiere of The Last Resort that Asuelu had cheated on Kalani by accepting oral sex from a woman at a bar during a visit to his father in Samoa. Kalani discovered Asuelu’s infidelity when she noticed on a FaceTime call that his tongue was white, which is typically a sign of a yeast infection known as thrush.
While Kalani wanted to divorce Asuelu, he offered her a “hall pass” to kiss another man as payback. To Asuelu’s surprise, Kalani used the hall pass — who was later identified as Dallas Nuez — and the kiss escalated to oral sex, followed by actual sex. She developed feelings for the man and continued to stay in contact with him, which hurt Asuelu.
“I took Asuelu up on the hall pass because sexually I’ve only been with Asuelu, and I wanted to see what it was like,” Kalani confessed during the August 21 episode. “But once I got to know this other person better, I ended up liking the other man. So I don’t know.”
Asuelu admitted in a confessional that it was a “really bad idea” to give Kalani the hall pass, but he hoped that she would stop texting the man so she and Asuelu could “start fresh.”
Kalani later dropped the bombshell that Asuelu’s cheating was not limited to one instance, but throughout their entire marriage. “He’s cheated on me throughout our whole entire relationship,” Kalani told costar Liz Woods during the October 9 episode. “He cheated in the beginning. He cheated when I was pregnant. He cheated when I was doing his paperwork to bring him here. He tried to cheat online um, like a year ago. It’s been a steady relationship of cheating.”
Kalani initially decided to block communication with Dallas to give her marriage with Asuelu a fighting chance; however, she changed her mind after she caught Asuelu suspiciously deleting text messages.
Upon reconnecting with Dallas, he flew out to see Kalani while at the Florida resort. Kalani initially planned to just talk with Dallas during their reunion, but revealed that they “ended up doing other things.”
After her night with Dallas, the mom of two called an emergency therapy session to tell Asuelu she wanted a divorce.
Are Kalani and Asuelu Still Together?
Kalani and Asuelu are seemingly not together. The California native asked Asuelu for a divorce during the October 30 episode of 90 Day: The Last Resort.
“The sooner we get divorced, the better for the kids. There’s just nothing more that can be done. Like, I’ve given up,” the 90 Day Fiancé alum explained in a solo interview. “I just hope that he can deal with everything and move forward with all of us.”
Despite the couple opting to end their marriage, Kalani and Asuelu committed to being better friends and coparents as they raised their twos, Oliver and Kennedy.
Did Kalani and Asuelu Get Divorced?
Kalani and Asuelu have not filed for divorce as of August 2023.
Is 90 Day Fiance’s Asuelu Dating Winter Everett?
Asuelu later denied the romance rumors via a TikTok Live session. “No, I am not dating da Winter [sic],” Asuelu responded when asked by a fan. “Oh my goodness gracious.”
Is 90 Day Fiance’s Kalani Still Dating Her Hall Pass?
While Asuelu has denied a new romance, fans noticed a mysterious tattooed hand in some of Kalani’s Instagram Stories starting in December 2022. The hand appeared again in January 2023.
In July 2023, The Sun identified the mystery man as Dallas Nuez, her hall pass. At the time, Kalani and Dallas were reportedly getting serious and planning to “move in together,” a source told the publication.
Kalani seemingly hinted that she and Dallas were still together in August 2023 by updating her Instagram profile photo to a selfie that allegedly included half of his face.
Following the airing of Kalani and Asuelu’s split in October 2023, Kalani took to Instagram to confirm her ongoing relationship with Dallas.
“I waited a year for this,” she captioned a photo with his back turned, adding adorable emojis.
