90 Day Fiance couple Paul Staehle and Karine Martins have reportedly dropped their restraining orders against each other, sparking speculation they may be back together again.

Paul, a 37-year-old from Louisville, KY, and Karine, a 24-year-old from Tonantins, Brazil, first appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, followed by Season 1 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way and the currently-airing fifth season of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?.

After getting married in 2017, Karine has threatened to divorce Paul nearly a handful of times, and their relationship failed to improve after the couple welcomed son Pierre into the world in March 2019.

Paul revealed in July that he and Karine had both filed emergency protective orders against each other after an explosive argument with police involvement, but the reality TV stars dismissed those orders earlier this month, Us Weekly reported.

Paul and Karine reportedly dropped three emergency protective orders on September 16, according to court documents obtained by Us.

Now that Paul and Karine are allowed to see and communicate with each other, there is no longer a reason for them to appear in court in December for their scheduled hearing.

According to the court documents, the protective orders were thrown out "at the request of the petitioners," the magazine reported.

Karine is currently pregnant with the pair's second child, another baby boy, so fans are now speculating she and Paul have reconciled -- again -- and are trying to work things out.

On July 30, Paul posted a lengthy Instagram Live video in which he and Karine had both made assault allegations against each other and Karine had called the police on her husband.

Paul said he wanted to file for full custody of their son Pierre after Karine allegedly cheated on him and violated a Child Protective Services case against her.

Hours later, Paul made additional Instagram postings, reportedly, in which he claimed Karine had gone "missing" with Pierre while he was in the hospital being treated for a STD. He seemed to blame the alleged STD on Karine for allegedly cheating on him after she arrived in Kentucky.

Paul then reportedly claimed Karine had filed a "full restraining order" against him and posted photos showing a copy of the order Karine had submitted.

"I'm not allowed to be around her or my son, within 500 feet of them at all," he said.

Paul also filed his own protective order against Karine on July 30.

"I previously found glass in my food," Paul alleged in court documents obtained by Us. "I found similar glass shards from an item she broke."

Paul also alleged that Karine's friends were calling him with death threats.

"[They are] threatening to come to my home and kill me. They requested I pay them $10,000 or I would never see my son again," Paul reportedly claimed, adding that Karine allowed Pierre to "run in the street [and] get into the chemical cabinets."

"I fear for my wife's safety and mental well-being. I fear for my son's safety," Paul concluded.

A judge therefore reportedly ordered Karine to stop all communication with Paul and stay 500 feet away from him at all times as well.

Karine publicly confirmed in early August 2020 that she had left Paul and obtained an emergency protective order against him.

Karine said she never went "missing" but needed to be "rescued from an environment" that was no longer healthy for her and her child. She added on Instagram, "Relationships are hard and sometimes it just can't be fixed anymore."

Karine's protective order included an array of shocking claims -- including that Paul had physically assaulted her, sexually assaulted her, and prevented her doctor from prescribing birth control to her.

In the emergency protection order application Paul had shared on social media, Karine claimed Paul "forcefully rapes me," "hold[s] my Green Card and all my documents," monitors her phone, uses cameras to monitor her on his phone when he is not home, has forced her to drink beer while pregnant, and has forbidden Karine's doctor from prescribing birth control to her.

"On multiples occasions in the past 3 weeks the respondent pushed me, grab my breast squ[ee]zing and twisting, hurting me, pushing me to the floor, covering my mouth. He force his penis into my mouth and forcefully rapes me. If I refuse he throws things, he yells, or he threat[ens] to call police," Karine wrote in the handwritten two-page application.

"He currently hold[s] my Green Card and all my documents. I am not allowed to leave the house, he monitor[s] my phone, he [has] cameras around the house and he can see through his phone who arrives and who leaves. He threat[ens] take out son Pierre away if I ever leave. He forced me to drink alcohol by threat[ing] me so I drunk some so he calm down."

Karine continued, with the help of a language translator, "He is constantly on social media making videos of me against my will saying I am crazy, saying I have mental illness. Recently he called [Child Protective Services] and told [them] I was always drunk, aggressive, and abusive to him."

"He post on social media [that] I have [cheated with] several [men] even knowing that he [has] cameras around the house and I can't leave. I have no access to money for my son or myself."

"I went to the doctor to try [and] get contraceptive," she wrote. "In the doctor's office he said 'no' because I would be doing an abortion. The doctor explained the contraceptive was only for preventing [pregnancy] and I would not get pregnant [but] Paul said 'no' and took me home."

According to her application, Paul also refused to let her return home to Brazil but she feared she still wouldn't even be safe in her native country.

"I came to U.S. to visit my in-laws and now he [does] not let me go back. We got married in Brazil, not in U.S.," she wrote. "When I ask to go back to me family he threat[ens] [to] take my son away."

"I am terrified he will hurt me or hurt my son because I runned away from him and I am even afraid to go back to Brazil now because He Can go to Brazil and hurt us."

Karine ended her application by stating she was also afraid of Paul's mother Mary and wanted no contact with any of his family or friends.

"I have my family in Brazil but I don't feel that law enforcement will protect me from him there," she wrote. "I am afraid of him and his mother because his mother knows and sees what he does and she refused [to] report her son. I have witnessed him threat[en] and being violent with his own mother."

"I do not want any contact with or his mother, his friends or family. I do not want them close, I am afraid of them hurt[ing] my son for revenge.

Paul took to his Instagram Stories on August 10 to shoot down the claims Karine had made in her protective order filing.

"It truley [sic] breaks my heart it has come to this. I have bent over backwards. I found work. Got a new home. A new car. Let her buy anything she wanted. I did the cooking, cleaning, laundry and took care of Pierre," Paul wrote in his Instagram Stories.

"I have never in my life physically or sexually assaulted anyone."

Paul has claimed for quite some time that Karine has mental health issues, and so he addressed his beliefs in the message to his followers.

"I have made motions to the court for Karine to get mental help. I have had to double up on my therapy to cope with this madness," Paul wrote.

"Her motion against me with false allegations is for a 3 year restraining order against me and both my children. Alimony and child support. But I can not see her or my children at all."

Paul subsequently took a break from social media in August but returned after three weeks of silence to reveal he was in Brazil and Karine was in Indiana.

"For everyone thinking I am chasing karine in Brazil. Karine is in Indiana, USA. I came here alone to clean and organize our brazil home. It needs to be sanitary and baby safe," Paul wrote.

"I have been keeping busy since she left. I finished cleaning and organizing USA house so now I am doing the same thing in Brazil. All my work is on the internet so as long as I have internet I can be anywhere. Even court is on the internet these days."

Paul then switched topics from his current location to the fact he's been missing his family.

"My life revolved around them. I have not seen my son since July. Next court date is now in December. I will not see my sons for a very long time," Paul continued.

"So I am keeping busy and constructive. Karine is not in Brazil. I knew that when I traveled here. Now my mother is having a mental breakdown because she is also forbidden to see Pierre. I have lost my sons."

Paul clearly confirmed Karine is pregnant with a boy because he wrote "sons" multiple times.

Paul went on to suggest he's doing everything possible to keep his mind off being alone.

"I just want to stay busy and be productive. I have to accept the fact I will probably never see my wife and son again. Or see the birth or ever see my unborn child," Paul wrote.

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?'s fifth season ended with Paul and Karine agreeing to take a trip to Brazil together so Karine could visit her family.

Karine said her relationship with Paul was under a lot of pressure in the United States and so a trip to Brazil would be good for their relationship.

Karine said she would "think" about returning to America after spending some time in Brazil, but Paul feared at the time Karine would never want to come back to the United States with him.

Karine and Paul did not participate in the Season 5 Tell-All for 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, which just aired Part 1 on Sunday night on TLC.
