Not since the The Dress split the internet on whether it was blue or gold has something been so contentious. Love Is Blind season 4 fans are split on whether Paul Peden and Micah Lussier‘s supposed friend Ruby Mensing had a thing secretly on the down-low. Love Is Blind alumnae Natalie Lee and Deepti Vempati already suggested on their podcast Paul and Micah’s entire relationship was a staged sham engagement. Now fans are wondering if Paul and bridesmaid Ruby had a relationship going on on the sly. Finale footage appears to possibly show Paul reaching back deliberately to pat Ruby on the butt when leaving Micah because he rejected marrying her at their wedding day.
The possibility of light spanking lit up the internet after the Love Is Blind season 4 finale aired on Friday, April 14. Sleuths spotted the latest alleged Love Is Blind cheating scandal and pulled the footage, put it on slow-motion, and its now be watched by millions of online viewers. The video is tough to tell what happened because at the moment Paul’s hand reaches back Micah’s mom walks into the frame and blocks whatever could’ve happened between Paul and bridesmaid Ruby.

Did Paul & Bridesmaid Ruby (Micah’s Friend) Have A Relationship? And Alleged Love Is Blind Cheating Scandal Explained
The supposedly incriminating scene of Paul allegedly touching Micah’s friend’s butt caused a firestorm of reactions online. Some dismissed it as nothing. While many other Love Is Blind fans think there’s something to the theory they were in a relationship.
Replying to @heatherpower2016 What do you guys think of this interaction between Paul and Micah’s Bridesmaid? Innocent or Intentional?? #micahandpaul #paulandmicah #loveisblindseason4 #loveisblindseason4recap #greenscreen #greenscreenvideo credit to @thegabbi.rielle
“Seriously reaching. Y’all want it to be true so bad,” he wrote in the comments. “You’re insane if you think I’d slap a random girl’s [butt] (whom I don’t even know) during the most traumatic moment in my relationship.”
“What a reach. A nothing incident,” one fan said, echoing lots of people who thought it was an innocent bump.
Fans Believe Something Happened Between Paul & Micah’s Friend From Love Is Blind Season 4 Wedding
Many fans aren’t buying it that nothing happened. They cite the apparent long eye contact between Paul and bridesmaid Ruby as he walks towards her, his taking his hand out of his pocket and motioning it towards her derriere, and her smiling and brushing her backside immediately after.
“I thought for sure there is no way that this happened on purpose but after watching the video… it just looks so unnatural. His hand movement looked off and her awkward smile. I think there is at least a 20% chance something is up haha,” one fan said on Reddit.
Now it turns out Paul liked two of Ruby’s bridesmaid bikini photos on her Instagram, too.
Replying to @mrsvargas804 Wait! Paul said he didnt know the bridesmaid but was liking her pictures on instagram ? ?. Uhhhh thats suspicious.? #micahandpaul #paulandmicah #loveisblindseason4recap #greenscreen
“Vanessa and Nick better be on TikTok right now! This needs to be addressed tomorrow,” one fan commented, referring to the Love Is Blind season 4 live reunion taking place on Sunday, April 16 at 8 p.m. EST.
Meanwhile, Micah hasn’t yet responded to the alleged controversy with Paul and her one bridesmaid. She also hasn’t spoken out on fans calling for her to end her friendship with best friend Shelby and Ruby for them smiling and being happy after she looked devastated at Paul saying no at the altar.
If Micah and Paul pretended to be in love, perhaps Paul and Ruby hit it off and had her blessing to date. In that case it wouldn’t be another Love Is Blind cheating scandal like SK Alagbada cheating on Raven Ross.
