#90DayFiance Star Karine Martins Begs Fans For Money to Visit Her Brazilian Family for Christmas!

Posted on Nov 16 2017 - 1:43pm by Nancy

90 Day Fiance star Karine Martins misses her Brazilian family and is begging fans for help!

Recently, Karine and Paul Staehle broke up over risqué texts between Karine and a mystery man named Alex. However, they quickly reconciled because Paul posted a GoFundMe for his fiance to visit her family for Christmas. According to Karine’s GoFundMe page, she’s asking fans for $2,000. The description reads:

“Money is for round-trip travel for Karine to go to Tonantins to visit her family for Christmas and be able to buy them all gifts. Anyone that knows Karine knows she has a heart of pure gold and her family is her number one priority. Spending of any funds from here will be documented via self-took pictures and self-made videos. This is for travel from Manaus to Tonantins. This is not for international travel. Any money over travel costs Karine will use for gifts. The gift shopping, travel, and exchanging of gifts and family Christmas will all be self-documented with self-produced videos and pictures.”

Some new tea to spill — the couple has moved to Manaus, Brazil from the U.S., after they canceled the K1 visa process. They’re supposedly applying for an alternative visa. Karine needs the $2K for travel expenses to and from Manaus, Brazil to Tonantins, Brazil (where her family lives) for Christmas. Not the USA to Brazil.

So far the couple has raised zero donations. To donate, click here.

    Are you kidding me???? WTF is going on and where did the TLC money go ….. why doesn’t she get a job in Manaus, Brazil and pay her own way if the TLC money has all been spent …. and what is that major loser “Pole” doing … I will give my money to St. Jude’s and forget ever sending money to these low life grifters who are healthy and can work for their money like my hubby and I did

    • Ginny girl

      Yes, I agree, w/your comment.. & to all who would consider it, please support St. Jude’s foundation/hospital.

    • Sandy Wood

      Paul could put his protective arsenal on eBay and sell at a handsome profit, who wouldn’t want to buy one of his slightly used penile sheaths.

      • chacha1

        could be that the dick fish ate thru the sheath LOL

    • Cassandra Dreme

      I have to disagree. I don’t believe she is a grifter at all! She made the big mistake of falling for a loser of the 10th degree. She’s young..she might get some sense eventually. Looks like he is the one trying to exploit their notoriety for cash.

      • chacha1

        she is also involved with a mystery man named Alex according to this article , if she can afford a cell phone and the nice clothes that she was wearing she can pay her own way home ….

        • Cassandra Dreme

          I have no problem with her talking to other men. Hopefully she will find somebody else.

          • chacha1

            ITA “Pole” is a criminal dirtbag ….. she can do way better and she can get a job ….

      • Hyacinth

        She might not be a grifter, but I think she went for Paul because she thought he had more money than she did.

  • NoDuggarSperm

    Eh, they made the choice to come back and she let him back in regardless of the red flags that she saw. They are adults and need to work for that money.

  • iverge

    Get a J-O-B and stop trying to defraud people into giving you money with some boo hooing sad story.

    • chacha1

      All TLC has done by focusing on these grifters is give them a platform to scam people … fat bitch Danielle Mullins who is a criminal was selling her picture on-line and there was some real stupid people who bought it …. SMDH

      • Sandy Wood

        WHAT, WHAT, WHAT….You didn’t order one to hang over your fireplace mantle!

        • chacha1

          I know, I know, I cannot believe I missed the opportunity to put her and her fat tattooed legs on my mantle with my x-mas decorations

          • NoFixinStupid

            You’ve got me LMAO chacha…

      • Jennymckitty

        ChaCha, I’d buy one of those to send to you. I know how you’d cherish it.

    • Dorinda’s slur

      Funny. As soon as I read it those were my first words. Get a job. That’s how the rest of us pay for things and get through life. Go Fund Me should just be for people who have a huge financial crisis like cancer or something like that. Not to travel. Missing your family is part of choosing to live away from them if you can’t afford to go back and visit.

  • the underground train

    So they don’t have any money from appearing on TLC? And why doesn’t this Alex guy help her out?

    • chacha1

      Yep, let mystery man ALEX give her the money … scammers !!! Like we are going to believe POLE that he will document everything spent with video Hahahahahahahaha

      • Sandy Wood

        I wonder if these “risque texts” are as legitimate as Nicole’s alleged one night stand and date without her ring. Maybe she was just trying to jolt some action out of Pole. They don’t seem to be able to come to the US, why don’t they go through a marriage ceremony in Brazil.

        • chacha1

          yeah, Nicole and her lie to make Azan jealous … the guy cannot even look her in the eye when she tells him she loves him …. he clearly despises her and wants to get to US and leave her nasty ass like Mohamed did …

          • NoFixinStupid

            BINGO!!!!

  • Cassandra Dreme

    She’s still with this guy? gah!

  • Sandy Wood

    I clicked on the “donate” button … for $100. donation you get a video, thank you card and autographed photo. Hair optional. (at least he has a sense of humor).
    For $50. you get an automated TV video recorded by Karine and if requested, a video call with Karine to discuss Xmas plans. I wonder if there is a translator app included.

    • Trippinhhard

      We don’t need for her to send nothing. I’m not about to send her a copper penny. Why do they think we’re easy prey. She better get some money from Paul tight ass.

    • Jennymckitty

      It would almost be worth $50 to tell Karine what a poor choice she has made in choosing a mate. Dang, if we only could all get together for that video chat….Chacha would have to go last.

      • Sandy Wood

        *dead* ………And after chacha summarized Paul’s shortcomings, she would end up offering to adopt Karine!

  • Hyacinth

    Oh, puh -lease!!!!!

  • Trippinhhard

    She can make some gifts and mail them. She knew her poor ass don’t have any money. I’m not about to send you one penny.

    • Allergic2dumbstuff

      I was thinking it, but you said it. (Lmbo) Actually, I was thinking ” Shoot, I need a ‘Go fund me’ my darn self. Also, why can’t they use their 90 FUNDS?

      • Trippinhhard

        He’s keeping that money for his self, he’s cheap
        and she’s desperate to stay with Paul phobia ass. HE looks dirty to me. You’re right everyone needs to have a go fund account to use for miscellaneous purchases
        LMBO

  • Why is this happening to us?

    According to the link provided, they have not raised any funds at all yet. Somehow I have a feeling they won’t be raising any money for Karine’s Christmas. Maybe I should start a Go Fund Me to buy things on my Christmas List!

    • Jennymckitty

      I’ll donate if you document with photos and videos.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Haha! Send it over- I’ll be more than happy to take pics of myself shopping! Lol

        • Jennymckitty

          Wrapping, unwrapping and perhaps a lock of your hair.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That’s not a problem! Lol. I have plenty of hair!

  • BaybeK8s

    Are these the two who communicate by translation app? She actually stayed with him after she almost got beheaded and he ran off into the woods? Oy vey

    • Trippinhhard

      THAt was a set up, she had her phone when she got to her hotel she had phone.

  • Why is this happening to us?

    I am curious to know if anyone knows about the US visa process for a felon (Paul). Is this possibly why they are living in Brazil? I can’t see him finding a decent job after being convicted of a felony in the US. I’m also wondering if he would even qualify as a sponsor on the K1 visa being that he is a convicted felon. He is probably better off staying there where no one knows who he is… I would also think their TLC money would be worth more down there, since the cost of living is cheaper.

    • luvmyfrenchie

      Exactly!! My are you kidding me alert rang loud…Praying not 1 PENNY given to the hustlers!!

    • Sandy Wood

      He has probably burned through (pardon the pun) any TLC money by now. He took a trip home to settle some financial business, that I doubt TLC paid for. The trip may have been to try to induce momma to sell her home to fund his folly or simply to replenish his supply of the contents of her hairbrush.

      • chacha1

        Sandy do you know what financial business he needed to settle when he came back to the US ? I wonder if his mother will have to sell the house

        • Sandy Wood

          No I haven’t heard what financial obligations he has that needed personal attention, but as Paul seems to be the center of his mother’s world, it wouldn’t surprise me if she was willing to pay for all this.
          His arsenal of protective gear he purchased must have cost thousands and he seemed to have it already bought when TLC came on board with his story.

          • chacha1

            and Karine had to also have Internet connection to get the attention of TLC… do you think her being assaulted with a machete was staged?

          • Sandy Wood

            I have read that these types of assaults are pretty common in some countries, BUT, that would have taken some nerve to come up to her like that with camera crews in attendance, so I think it was staged, along with the shots fired, they never did elaborate on if they were shooting to scare the assailant off or if they were shooting to kill. Just more drama I suspect.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Hehehe… 💇🏻
        They remind me of Norma and Norman Bates…lol

        • Sandy Wood

          Hi there Why :). Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Thought you might be posting some pictures of your delectable goodies you had made on the Thanksgiving thread. You sure know how to turn it out!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Happy Thanksgiving, Sandy! 😘😘 (Even though I know it’s not Thanksgiving in CA…lol…a little late on my end!)
            I have some pics of the desserts and possibly some of the food/table. I’ll see if I can crop the people out and post them…lol.
            I made 2 hams, a Bourbon Bread Pudding and Caramelized Onion & Gruyere Tartlets for appetizers. The bread pudding is delicious, but really fattening! Lol. I have the recipes for everything- I’ll try to post them later. I have to run out to my car and to the store for a few. I’ll be back later on tonight.
            We are having Thanksgiving again tomorrow with my in-laws since they weren’t able to join us yesterday. Round 2!! Lol

          • Sandy Wood

            It all sounds delicious ! I am doing appetizers for a BD party Sunday and am doing maple glazed, bacon wrapped shrimp as well as mini quiche with goat cheese, ham, artichoke and smoked cheddar.
            You are truly Superwoman to take on 2 TG, hope you can incorporate some ‘planned overs’ into 2nd round.

  • NoFixinStupid

    SCAMMERS……

  • Sandy Wood

    After giving this Paul/Karine situation far more thought than it warrants, I’m starting to wonder if Paul is trying to take us down the rabbit hole.
    -He appears to be stuck in Brazil if he wants to continue a relationship with Karine, he may not be able to qualify as a sponsor for K1, either because of prior convictions or lack of funds/job.
    -He knows that second only to the Danielle/Mohamed love story(!), their story has generated a great deal of viewer curiosity/interest. They don’t fit into any of the ongoing 90 day categories, so TLC no longer has any use for them.
    -He has been previously jilted/rejected so he may be over-reacting to Karine responding to any male on social media.
    -He is not employable in Brazil because of language barrier, that after all this time, he has not rectified due to laziness or lack of ability to concentrate.
    -He feels that these theatrics, such as GoFundMe and Karine’s flirtatious behavior keeps them in the public eye and possibly create enough buzz to warrant some type of a spin-off.
    -He will not go quietly into the night and this may be his lame attempt to keep viewer attention.

    • chacha1

      Let his mother bail his dirty ass out of Brazil …. he has no business in a country where he cannot speak the language, he could do IT work there but he needs to know their language ….. Karine seems to be computer savvy so I agree, this is a scam operation to try and get a spin off to generate some more money … I would really like to know where all that TLC money went

      • Sandy Wood

        I read that his ‘IT job” was stretching the description. He apparently set up cell phone displays in mall kiosks. Probably not too many malls as we know them in the jungles of Brazil and even if there were, sound like a minimum wage job at best.

      • Melba59

        While his mother is a little odd too, I say let him figure out his way out of his own messes for once in his miserable life. Let Mom use her money for herself for once in his 30 something years and let him grow up. It’s about time Mom gets to travel or do what she wants in the remaining years she has left without him draining all her resources for his foolishness.

        • chacha1

          ITA … can you imagine the hurt and embarrassment he brought into her life starting with getting caught with insurance fraud for arson

  • chacha1

    Karine appears to be in good health and must have been taken care of by her parents, her teeth are perfect and her clothes were real nice on the show ….. most real poor people cannot afford dental care and it shows in their teeth …. I bet she and her family are better off financially than Pole and his mother

    • Sandy Wood

      LOL, maybe her dad, as a Brazilian cop has a good health care plan.
      I have noticed watching Survivor that the participants use some kind of a stick from a tree branch on their teeth and they seem to maintain dazzling smiles over the 2 months or so that they go without toothbrushes and paste. That would account for the whiteness and probably the local diet isn’t heavy on sugary treats and that would keep them cavity free.

      • chacha1

        she was lucky then to not need braces because her teeth look straight …. and you are right, I remember her dad being a retired cop… I wonder if they get pensions in Brazil

        • Trippinhhard

          They also are crooks as cop and undercover money from illegal things helps cops all over the world. How can a cop buy a vacation home in Florida, drug money and illegal ways they don’t earn enough money for that.

      • chacha1

        I googled distance from Manaus to Tonantins in Brazil but nothing came up for Tonantins just Rio de Janero

  • chacha1

    $2,000 dollars for traveling 500 miles …??? guess she is going to spend a lot of money on gifts because that is only 2 tanks of gas from Manaus to Tonantins

    • Sandy Wood

      I don’t even think they celebrate Christmas with the deluge of electronics and battery operated toys, they probably share something like homemade food or handcrafted beaded jewelry.
      Karine could send the kids in the family some of the Beanie Babies Paul thought were such a great investment.

      • chacha1

        Beanie Babies LMAO I have bags full in my basement storage room

        • Trippinhhard

          U know if they are the originals they are worth money. I had some trolls from childhood, sold them to a dealer for 3500.00
          I also sold my granny’s old albums they were 74 or something like that. They were really thick $5K for 15 of them. They are going to sell them to rich collectors for a profit. RIP my mother said go back in mamas house and sell her whatnots $15K they wanted the antique case they were in. My mother almost fell out of her chair when I bought the check to her. My mother have whatnots coming out the butt I’m getting ready to sell her collectibles, I call a friend who called a friend and they gave me the hook up. My favorite thing is an old whiskey jar that plays the windup sold how dry I am. They were only going to give me 1K for it so I kept it. I love it and the drawing in Black is beautiful. Call some dealers where u from they come to ur house. If u don’t sell them your kids will, I’m selling everything I collected, because my son would sell most of them in a NY minute. My daughter has sentimental value with her. She would keep them. My ex tried to get half of my collections in our divorce, I never opened my mouth until I told the lawyer it’s all from my family ask him. His people never gave us shit and he’s not getting one thing from me. He better take what I’m offering but my antiques are mines, he didn’t buy one of the my family gave me my collection for different occasions. I don’t like BD gifts and thingees at all. My BD too close to Christmas and it’s not big deal, I thank the Lord I made a another year with his help.

          • chacha1

            my aunt bought me many Lladro’s in the 70’s and 80’s and sadly I did not keep the boxes ……..

          • Trippinhhard

            They don’t have to be the n boxes, boxes gets u
            Top. $$$$

  • chacha1

    the click on the gofundme link above has been taken down

    • Sandy Wood

      How embarrassing that not even some of the other 90 Day Fiance participants donated.
      Surely David could have tossed a few of Chris’s bahts his way.

      • chacha1

        you would think !!! LOL

    • Authentic

      Wow!

  • Melba59

    Yup, with all the terminal children and people on GoFundMe, and the grieving with no money to bury their loved ones, Karine bringing gifts to her family is one cause I’m gonna give my hard earned money to. Think again Doofus Paul. Pathetic

  • chacha1

    If Karine’s family is her number one priority then what is she doing trolling the internet for guys in the USA ?

    • Trippinhhard

      She needs a way out of that hell hole she’s from. Many people marry an American and they send monies back home to their families. I read about this for decades, when I was just a teenager.

  • chacha1

    I read that Karine and Pole Dickfish are done and he cancelled the GoFundMe

    • Sandy Wood

      Oh these crazzzy keeds! Apparently it’s back on again and she is now going by the name of Karine Staehle, so they must have gone through some type of marriage, no doubt hoping to bring her in as as spouse rather than fiance. The GFM is still cancelled.
      “The course of true love never runs smooth”. LOL

      • chacha1

        Happy Sunday Sandy … I think Karine is already hooking up with someone else in the US and once she gets here she will hit the road ASAP like Mohamed did … he had all kinds of hook-ups who lived in the US and Canada willing to help him and hopefully Pole and Dani-yell can hook up and commit crimes and whoop it up in the bedroom squealing like two pigs … now that would be a match made in heaven

        • Sandy Wood

          Happy Sunday to you too GF. Could you just imagine Pole’s reaction if Dani-yell pee-peed on him a little bit.

          • chacha1

            Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa OMG ewe !!
