Below Deck Med: Are Natalya And Her Boyfriend Still Together

Below Deck Med: Are Natalya And Her Boyfriend Still Together

Below Deck Med season 8‘s first six episodes were overshadowed by Stewardess Natalya Scudder‘s open relationship with her then new boyfriend AJ back when filming in late summer 2022. Throughout the first few charters, Natalya tried to be a loyal girlfriend to her boyfriend who demanded they be in an open relationship. From the get-go, Natalya didn’t seem thrilled by the relationship being open. She awkwardly told Captain Sandy Yawn about it early after joining superyacht Mustique. So, are Natalya and her boyfriend still together after the show and she left Genoa, Italy?

At the beginning of the charter season, Natalya constantly had to updated AJ on if she found any of her male crewmates attractive, and constantly worried he was hooking up with other women while traveling in Asia. Eventually Natalya got sick of the double-standard of their open relationship and decided to fool around with Bosun Luka Brunton. However, she felt guilty when her boyfriend called he late at night when she was kissing Brunton. So she ended her brief boatmance with Luka and called AJ the next day to let him know what happened.

Natalya’s boyfriend was furious. She suggested she would get on a plane and leave her job immediately if he wanted to be exclusive with her.

Natalya’s Instagram suggests things — surprise, surprise — didn’t work out between her and ex boyfriend AJ. The first weekend of November, Natalya attended BravoCon 2023 alongside her mom. Natalya’s photos on her social media don’t include any guy in her life. Instead, she seems to be enjoying the single life, traveling exotic locations and modeling for Playboy. Natalya recently did an interview where she bragged about making more than she ever did yachting working as a Playboy bunny.

“It gives me the financial freedom to travel, which is unreal! I can work from my phone whilst traveling the world and visiting exotic destinations, I pinch myself everyday. I feel very blessed!” Natalya told The Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, it looks strongly likely Natalya’s ex boyfriend during filming of the show is serial crypto and tech entrepreneur AJ Suedhoff. The pair were both enjoying a luxury vacation in Ibiza, Spain, together a couple months before Natalya joined Captain Sandy in Italy for season 8. The pair still follow each other on Instagram, though, so perhaps they’re still together but keeping their relationship on the downlow. It doesn’t seem likely, though, since they both appear to be traveling the world, but in different places. Also, whomever is Natalya’s ex appeared to be controlling, so it’s hard to imagine he’d be okay with Natalya working for Playboy.

Natalya’s Instagram friend AJ Suedhoff, who fits the profile of Natalya’s boyfriend’s description on the show, founded several companies, including Chaos Capital, Unitea Music and Othnetwork. He also has several photos of him surrounded by beautiful women and loves to skydive and drive sportscars.

In conclusion, all social media evidence points to Natalya and her ex boyfriend AJ no longer dating.
