90 Day Fiance star Paul Staehle claims his wife Karine Martins has started divorce proceedings in Brazil but he hopes he can convince her to stay in the United States for the sake of their son, Pierre.

Paul took to Instagram on Monday and posted a photo of a cartoon character resembling himself crying with a sentence written in Portuguese across it.

When translated into English, the image read, "Karine started divorce proceedings in Manaus."

Two hours after the divorce posting, Paul uploaded a video to his Instagram Stories saying Karine and their son would be going to Tonantins on the Amazon River, which is over 500 miles upstream from Manaus, the following day.

Paul implied he was not invited to join his family on the trip, but he did not reveal his own plans.

"Tomorrow, little buddy goes with Karine to Tonantins on the boat. I'll miss you, little guy! I'm going to miss you so much. Do you hear me? Dad's going to miss you!" Paul said in a sweet voice.

Karine is originally from a remote village in Tonantins, but she and Paul were living in an apartment in Manaus before Karine was able to move to Louisville, Kentucky earlier this year.

On Tuesday, Paul posted a message to fans on his Instagram Stories, reiterating how his marriage to Karine is falling apart.

"We are only doing cameos together until midnight tonight. After that I will be unbookable temporarily. As I will probably go up the Amazon to try to convince her to live with Pierre in USA with or without me," Paul wrote.

"I just want the best possible life for my son... I have to get back to work soon so I pray this ends as positively as possible."

This past weekend, Paul posted photos on Instagram saying he learned their apartment in Manaus had been severely robbed, and he also posted pictures of Karine, himself and their baby with airline employees, suggesting the couple had traveled to from Kentucky to Brazil recently.

"I discovered today that our home was severely burglarized in Manaus...They entered my balcony door and took everything of value.. even Karine stuffed animal collection My stuff Pierre's stuff Karine's stuff .... I am devastated...." Paul captioned a slideshow of multiple rooms appearing to be empty on Instagram.

Paul later confirmed he and Karine will not be setting up a GoFundMe account in light of the burglary, nor will they be filing any type of insurance claim.

But several days before that, Paul suggested things were fine between Karine and himself on November 3 when he had posted two photos from their wedding day in honor of their second wedding anniversary.

"Happy 2 year anniversary @staehlekarine and our never ending rollercoaster of a journey. #90dayfiancehappilyeverafter #90dayfiancetheotherway #90dayfiancebeforethe90days #90dayfiance #manaus #tonantins," Paul wrote alongside the images.

Paul and Karine, who met online and fell in love in Brazil, wed in 2017, but their wedding didn't air until the following year on Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days on TLC.

After starring on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, they allowed cameras to film them for a new spinoff, the debut season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, which wrapped in late October.

After two devastating miscarriages, Paul and Karine had another shot at parenthood when they happily announced in October 2018 they were expecting a baby. Later that month, Paul revealed Karine was pregnant with a baby boy.

Right before the couple's son Pierre was born on March 22, however, Karine threatened to file for divorce from Paul because he struggled to trust her. Karine also hated how he lost his temper during arguments.

"I really want a divorce. I am tired of what Paul does to me," Karine said in a confessional during one episode of the series.

"He lives in the past and too many fights make a relationship fall apart. There's no more hope. I'm thinking of my son now."

The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way season even showed Karine and her mother leaving Paul behind in Tonantins and traveling to Manaus to file to divorce shortly before Pierre was born.

However, Karine ultimately decided to give Paul another chance when he stepped it up in the delivery room and was very supportive, and she moved to the United States a few months later on a CR-1 spousal visa.

Karine and Paul documented their time together in America over the course of several months, and they appeared to be a happy family in the summer.

But speculation the 90 Day Fiance couple's volatile relationship was once again on the rocks first began in early September when Paul had made an Instagram Stories posting claiming Karine was threatening him with divorce -- again.

"Doing a poll strictly out of curiosity. For someone I know very well...... Should a wife divorce her husband over his mother buying gifts daily spoiling their son?" he wrote in the Instagram Story.

"Should a grandmother be banned from seeing her grandchildren over spoiling them. And a husband be divorced for defending his mother's actions?"

Although Paul seemingly tried to play it off like the scenario was happening to some other couple, most of his Instagram followers knew better as the couple's social-media postings openly showed they were living near Paul's mother in the Louisville at the time with Pierre.

As a result, it appeared Karine was angry with Paul's mother for "spoiling" her son as well as Paul for taking his mom's side.

Things seemed to go back to normal until late September, when Paul suggested, once again, the couple's marriage was ending and Karine had initiated a divorce.

According to the comments, Karine told Paul that she didn't want him in her life anymore and had retained a divorce lawyer. 

Paul revealed the news in a pair of since-deleted Facebook postings from September 27, according to screenshots captured by his followers.

"Karine asked me to remove our photos. And let everyone know that she doesn't want me in her life," he wrote in his first Facebook posting.

Paul then also wrote a subsequent posting in a mix of Portuguese and English.

"Karine advogado de divorcio me ligou. Guess I need a lawyer," he wrote.

Translated to English, the Portuguese text states, "Karine's divorce lawyer called me."

Shortly afterward, Paul deleted both postings and removed most photos of Karine from his page.

Late last month, however, Paul and Karine put on a united front when Paul asked fans on Instagram for great haunted-house recommendations in the spirit of Halloween. In addition to revealing he was trying to plan a date for his wife, Paul posted a photo at the time of Karine and himself smiling.
