90 Day Fiancé’s Paul Staehle’s son Pierre, three, is taken into foster home by CPS … after father and son show up in Kentucky after child was reported missing
90 Day Fiancé star Paul Staehle and his three-year-old son Pierre are back in Kentucky after authorities said Pierre was missing last month.
Staehle, 39, told TMZ that he and Pierre returned to Louisville Saturday, and he turned his son over to his parents at a local park.
Staehle told the outlet that he gave his son to his parents in an effort to avoid dealing with Child Protective Services amid ongoing legal issues with his ex-wife Karine Martins after they lost custody of their children, Pierre and Ethan, one.

Both had previously been pictured in a bulletin from Missing People in America, as a Louisville Police Department spokesperson confirmed to the outlet that the child is safe and that the missing person case was closed Sunday.
Pierre had first been reported as missing June 9 and was the focus of an alert from The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, InTouch reported.
Staehle told TMZ that he needs additional time to work on the situation, as CPS subsequently placed the boy into a foster home with his brother Ethan, one, after Staehle’s parents contacted them.
Staehle told TMZ he had not kidnapped his son, but they had been on a work trip for around a month. He said that he had been traveling between Pennsylvania and Florida with his son, who he brought because he deals with extreme separation anxiety.

Staehle and Pierre lost custody of their children in the wake of videos surfacing depicting a longtime abusive relationship between the couple, TMZ reported.
Staehle’s parents are looking to get full custody of the children in family court, according to the outlet.
Martins said Saturday in an Instagram Stories post she had been ‘doing well,’ translated from Portuguese.
The pair exchanged vows in November 2017 and welcomed Ethan in February of 2021.
The relationship problems between Staehle and Martins made headlines in the summer of 2020 when Staehle said on Instagram that Martins and Pierre had been missing.
He said in a clip, ‘Karine took off with Pierre and I don’t know where they are,’ adding that neighbors had told him Pierre was not securely bucked into a car seat when they left. Staehle later said that Martins had sought a restraining order against him.
