As we reported earlier today, there has been a lot of drama surrounding 90 Day Fiance stars Paul Staehle and his wife, Karine Staehle, in the past 24 hours… and now, in video footage from Instagram Story, Paul addresses Karine’s disappearance. 

Cop Caller Karine

Before Karine disappearing, Paul and she had gotten into an argument after he spotted her having a conversation involving “divorce” and “child support” on her phone. For reasons that have not been completely divulged, Karine decided to call the police and Paul took to Instagram live to broadcast the entire ordeal.

Paul and Karine Staehle

While the cops were there, Paul revealed that Karine had a CPS claim against her, was insistent that Karine had cheated on him and claimed he had wanted to go to couples counseling but Karine was resistant (and refused to get out of the car when he attempted to take her). 

During the live Instagram broadcast, Paul also revealed he has “1080P cameras” around his home, suggested the police look at them and stated they were to “protect him.” Speaking of protection, he stated he was doing this live to “protect himself.” 


Then, last night, Paul took to Instagram story from a hospital. He said that he had been diagnosed with an STD, but had never cheated on Karine. Clearly he was implying that she had cheated on him and that’s how he had gotten an STD. 

Paul did note that, while in the hospital, he received treatment for the STD and did end up leaving the hospital after being treated. 

Karine’s Restraining Order

As Paul was leaving the hospital, he returned to his Instagram story to tell fans that “Karine filed a full restraining order on me. I’m not allowed to be around her or my son within 500 feet of them.”

As can be seen above, Karine made many accusations in the restraining order including that Paul: 

  • Wouldn’t let her leave the house
  • “Forcefully rapes” her
  • Threatens to give their son away 
  • Prevented Karine from getting contraception 

Karine also noted she was terrified of Paul hurting her or their son, Pierre.

Karine Is Missing

Then, late this morning, Paul returned to Instagram story to share the news that Karine was missing.

At the time, he stated the following:

“Hey everyone. It’s gonna be a little scary. I can’t believe I have to make this message. It’s got me really upset right now.

The sheriff’s department came by and they are looking for Karine. Karine is missing and they don’t know where she’s at. If anybody knows where she’s at, please contact the Sheriff’s department and let them know where Karine is at.

They are looking for Karine. They came here looking for her. Obviously, I don’t know where she’s at because I got a PO [Protective Order]  and what she does is her business at this point. I’m very scared for her and the child, as was the Sheriff that was here.”

Paul also posted to his main Instagram feed a business card for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, urging people to call them if they saw Karine or Pierre. This photo has since been deleted. 

Paul Said More Last Night 

Since Karine was reported as “missing” today, many fans have been chattering online about something Paul said on his Instagram story BEFORE discussing the STD last night. In this footage, which we have posted below, Paul speaks about Karine taking off.

“I’m in the hospital waiting to get the results back now,” Paul says in the video. “Karine took off with Pierre. No idea where they are. Neighbors called me upset said your wife’s not in the right state of mind. She just took off with the baby. No car seat. Hopped in some dude’s car and took off.”

“I just messaged Karine’s mother,” Paul continues. “Her Mom’s worried and she wants to get a hold of her. After she got in  the guy’s car her phone got turned off. So anybody can give her Mom- Karine’s mother- her whereabouts. Karine’s mother is very, very worried for her safety. Very, very, very worried for her safety. So if you can please contact Karine’s family and let Karine’s family know if she’s okay or not. It’s very important. Karine’s family want[s] to know if she’s okay or not.”

“I’m still in the hospital,” Paul wraps with saying. “She got in the car with the other person and shortly afterwards like I said her phone is totally deactivated. Not deactivated- not turned off- but it’s turned off. Like powered off. Her phone is currently powered off and no one can get a hold of her. Her family is currently trying to get a hold of her but her phone is currently powered off. So if anybody sees her please help her get a hold of her family and let her know if she’s okay.”

Here is the footage:

Social Media Disappearance 

It’s interesting to note that, since this ordeal began, Karine’s Instagram has also completely been deactivated. 

At press time, this is all that is known; however, we are certain more details regarding this will continue to emerge and we will be sure to keep you posted.
