Kalani Faagata has repeatedly called out Asuelu Pulaa’s parenting skills
Since Kalani and Asuelu first appeared in Season 6 of 90 Day Fiance, viewers have seen Asuelu act out in ways that were detrimental to his relationship with Kalani.
His continued behavior’s negative effects on his and Kalani’s two kids have been called out by Kalani several times throughout their time on the show and its spinoffs.
When Kalani and Asuelu were on Season 3 of 90 Day Diaries, Kalani brought up a time when Asuelu stopped paying attention to their boys and one of them ran away into a parking lot.
Kalani has said that Asuelu’s inattentiveness and mixed-up priorities have made their marriage difficult and Kalani has felt like she has had to do most of the parenting.
Kalani’s sister Kolini has also been very skeptical of Asuelu’s skills as a partner and father and the two have often been at odds.
