It wasn’t easy for Paola, as the netizens (citizens of the internet) began attacking her on her social media accounts, claiming that she was with Russ only because she wanted to get her green card. It appears that they’ve been proven wrong, as Paola has been married to Russ for nearly eight years now, and they also have a son named Axel, born on 1 January 2019, and who can be seen featured in some of Paola’s Instagram pictures.
Russ and Paola have also had their ups and downs, as she started appearing half-naked in music videos, not long after she married Russ, with which he wasn’t okay, so Paola eventually stopped doing this kind of work.
