90 Day Fiance fans have known for a very long time that Paul Staehle and Karine Martins have a toxic relationship.

For years, many have focused upon Paul — his age, his troubling history, and his odd behavior.

Right now, all eyes are on Karine.

Not all toxic relationships are abusive (though of course all abusive relationships are toxic).

In this case, a video appears to show Karine being physically abusive towards Paul.

What appears to be a camera inside their home films Karine seeming to pull Paul sharply back by his hair and force his head back by grabbing his neck.

The video was leaked on social media and viewed by thousands in just a few hours.

Heartbreakingly, the couple’s two-year-old son, Pierre, was in the room during the apparent altercation.

Some fans hope that the video is somehow not what it seems, others expected as much — or worse — from the unhealthy and unhappy couple.

Our thoughts are with all survivors of domestic abuse, many of whom are reliving their own trauma as this story circulates.
