Karine looks like a much different person now than the innocent young girl viewers met in the Amazon of Brazil. Many Reddit users say she looks worn down and rough after being married to Paul this long and having two children in a short amount of time.
Onlookers speculate that Karine’s desperation to get out of poverty caused her to seek any relationship with an American man, and that’s what led her to ignore the red flags with Paul and choose to marry him.
Their relationship ever since has been filled with abuse allegations, threats of divorce, bizarre and dangerous situations, and even more poverty.
People have been comparing Karine’s circumstances to Before the 90 Days star Rose when she started a relationship with Big Ed to seek a better life.
Karine recently dyed all her hair blue and has been busy creating freaky content with Paul on OnlyFans, which has been creeping viewers out.
Fans do not like Karine’s OnlyFans and feel like she’s exploited
One fan put it this way, “Bet she never imagined that in only a few short years her future husband would be hawking videos of her having sex and giving birth to weirdos on the internet.”
Karine started her OnlyFans while she was pregnant for the second time, and at first, there was no nudity, and it was free. Not long after, she started charging $25 for a subscription, and subscribers had to pay extra to view explicit videos with her and Paul.
In general fans are saying that, “Marriage and motherhood have not been kind to her whatsoever both mentally and physically.”
Karine and Paul have always been in difficult circumstances
Their relationship has been mired in controversy and manic episodes from Paul since the beginning.
Fans brought up Paul’s bizarre behavior when he hid in a chicken coop and a literal dog house when he was having an anxiety attack.
Paul’s outbursts, unhinged episodes, and inability to get a stable job and home environment for his family have only exacerbated viewers feelings about the situation Karine is in and why she looks so weathered.
Viewers believe that Karine’s mom saw through Paul and knew that there was something off about him but, “Karine’s dad (the former police officer) had awful judge of character – he didn’t pick up on what a serious threat Arsonist Paul posed to his daughter.”
Along this same train of thought, one Reddit user said, “I don’t think he (Karine’s dad) cared. Idk if you noticed but a lot of the Dad’s on this show will let their daughters go off with some random guy because they think he’ll give them a better life in the US not bc they think he’s a great guy.”
There is talk that they were fired from TLC among abuse allegations, but the pair remain active on social media.
