Love Is Blind season 3 stars Raven Ross and SK (Sikiru) Alagbada broke up after repeated cheating allegations dropped over the past week. The ex couple released a joint statement on their Instagram accounts late Sunday night saying they had decided to go their separate ways. However, Raven and SK’s breakup statement didn’t give any explanation.
“We are saddened to announce that we have decided to go our separate ways. Due to on-going legal proceedings surrounding these allegations, we can not provide additional details and ask that you please respect our privacy during this hard time,” Raven and SK wrote in their joint breakup statement. Their statement didn’t elaborate on what legal proceedings could mean.
“Thank you for following our love story and believing in us. This journey has forever shaped our lives and we are so grateful for everyone who has been a part of it. Your love and support means everything.”
UPDATE: SK released a second statement late Wednesday night on Nov. 23. He claims that they were single after the show and dated other people. SK made it clear he’s pursuing “legal actions” against some of the accusers involved. He claims that the allegations were “falsely misrepresented with malicious intent”.
Raven And SK’s Breakup Comes After Cheating Allegations
At the beginning of last week, TikTok user @emmwho9 suggested SK may have cheated on Raven with her. She released a couple of now-deleted videos showing alleged text messages between SK and herself after they met on dating app Hinge earlier this year. The alleged DMs suggest they also went on a date together. The computer science student from San Francisco behind the account said they stopped talking four months ago. After Love Is Blind season 3 finished filming Raven and SK took some time apart. It’s unclear if they were together or in an open long-distance relationship when SK allegedly talked to the women on Hinge. (SK is going to business school at Berkeley in California and spends time going back-and-forth to Dallas.)
Raven, in an interview on Nov. 10, 2022, said she and SK took a break after the show but had been together for over a year now officially.
“We’re still together, it’s been a while now,” she said on reality TV star Nick Viall’s show on Nov. 10. “Like over a year, pretty much since filming. After filming, you know, we had a weird space for a while. He, I think within that week, had to move to California. So, we definitely had a long transition period where we like still talked. But I think it’s been a little over a year that we were officially like, ‘Okay, like you know, we’re going to be official and move forward, and kind of pick up where we left off. But there is so much love there. And, like, he’s literally my best friend. So yeah, we’ve been making it work between Texas and California.”
However, it’s unclear if they were in an open relationship as they did long-distance.
“But really, what makes [our long-distance relationship] work for us is that we have such a strong foundation that’s really based in communication. So that I feel like is essentially what you need for a long-distance relationship. I trust him so much. And I also know that like we have such good communication skills between each other that if something’s wrong or someone needs a little bit extra, like for instance, having a rough week, we can be that for each other. So I think for me, what I’ve always looked for in a relationship is a really strong partnership, you know? And we really have that,” Raven told Viall.
The alleged ex love-interest of SK deleted the videos earlier in the week. She then reposted them over the weekend when another accuser came forward. She again deleted them on Sunday.
On Friday, Dallas fashion influencer Hannah Beth released a now-deleted TikTok video with lots of pictures of her and SK together. She claims they went on two romantic trips together after Raven and SK’s Love Is Blind season. Hannah said they went to Ibiza, Spain, and London, UK, in the summer of 20221. She also said they went to Cabo, Mexico, in May 2022. She also alleged (showing screenshots of a text conversation) SK invited her to a yacht trip to Miami in September, 2022, that didn’t materialize.
It’s unclear if Hannah and @emmwho9 took down their videos because of the “ongoing legal proceedings” in the breakup statement. Raven also claims that Hannah “tried to extort us” in her TikTok comments.
“The truth is out now, I didn’t want it just sitting on my page, I’m ready to move forward and heal for my own sake,” Hannah said to one fan asking why she deleted her video.
Love Is Blind Couple SK & Raven Deleted Instagram Pics Together Before Announcing Split
Raven first deleted pics of her and SK as a couple Sunday. SK, who had turned off his Instagram comments earlier in the week, deleted pics with Raven shortly thereafter. Several hours later they released their joint breakup statement.
Raven responded to some of the comments from fans calling for her to break up with SK.
“GIRL YOU DESERVE BETTER,” wrote one LIB fan.
Raven responded with two heart emojis.
“Exactly. And [Raven] is sooo beautiful, inside and outside. His loss!” said another fan.
Raven also responded with some heart emojis to that comment.
Many viewers were very disappointed to hear the news of their breakup because Raven and SK were a favorite couple from the season. Fans first were upset with SK for turning down marrying Raven at the altar.
Although Raven and SK broke up, Love Is Blind season 3 fans may need to wait until the After the Altar episode to get the inside details of their breakup.
