90 Day Fiancé star Paul Staehle’s wife Karine Martins has implied that he is dead in a recent update, however, Paul’s rumored 18-year-old girlfriend Izabele Medeiros is still trying to find him. Paul, a 40-year-old reality TV star, is known for his controversial storyline in the 90 Day Fiance franchise. Paul had found love internationally with Karine, who was from Tonantins in Brazil. Paul and Karine’s language barrier and age gap led to most of their relationship problems. Besides, Paul also had a criminal past – he had been arrested and sent to prison for arson – which he kept a secret from his then-girlfriend Karine.
Paul and Karine’s marriage was abusive, leading to their split in December 2021. They lost custody of their kids as a result and got back together in April 2023 in order to get Ethan and Pierre back. Karine recently posted a story about Paul going missing in Brazil on Instagram. The next day, she posted an emotional tribute video for Paul using a caption written in the past tense – suggesting Paul had passed away. Paul’s mother Edna then came forward to claim she had received alarming texts from her son last Thursday morning asking for help, but they haven’t heard anything back from him since then. Meanwhile, 18-year-old Brazilian native Izabele, whom Paul had been romantically linked to, is also giving her statement.
