Everything we know about 'Love Is Blind' stars SK and Raven's relationship amid cheating allegations
- The pair announced the split eleven days after confirming they'd gotten back together.
- Their joint statement about the split referenced "legal proceedings" and "allegations."
Sikiru "SK" Alagbada and Raven Ross have had one of the most tumultuous relationships in "Love Is Blind" history. The former couple met during the pods stage of the reality show experiment and got engaged sight unseen.
Raven and SK had a rocky start that led to a celebrated reconciliation
They got along well during the getaways, despite having to work on their physical and sexual chemistry. The only potential red flag that emerged when considering their lives together was that SK had been accepted to graduate school in California, while Raven planned to stay in Dallas, Texas where the Pilates instructor's clients were based. The couple ultimately opted for a long-distance marriage.
They appeared to have a financial plan for living in two different cities and vowed to visit each other often. But on their wedding day, SK said "I do not" because he didn't believe they were ready to make long-distance work.
Raven was visibly hurt by SK's decision. She ran off in tears and eventually told the cameras that she was planning on marrying SK that day.
However, viewers learned on the "Love Is Blind" reunion that the couple had reconciled and were dating each other. Though they were living in different cities as they had always planned, Raven revealed that the distance had made their relationship stronger.
"Our communication, I think I can speak for both of us, we've never been on this level in any other relationship," she said, adding that every time they see each other they "reach a new level."
"We've grown so much from this experiment first of all, from what we went through, from being apart. It makes it so much better when we're together," she continued. "Of course, I'd prefer to be with him every day, but we've grown so much from it and it's really beautiful to do that."
She also joked that she knew how many direct messages SK was getting from other women on social media after their wedding episode aired.
Allegations that SK cheated on Raven while they were dating emerged on TikTok
The "Love Is Blind" season three reunion aired on November 9. Eleven days later, Raven and SK posted a joint statement announcing their breakup to their respective Instagram followers.
"We are saddened to announce that we have decided to go our separate ways," the statement read (via People.) "Due to the 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."
"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," the statement concluded.
The "allegations" likely refer to recent TikTok videos claiming that SK cheated on Raven while they were together before "Love Is Blind" season three was released.
According to Buzzfeed, earlier in the month, a TikTok user posted a now-deleted video claiming she went on a date with SK while he was with Raven.
"Put a finger down if you went on a date in April with a guy from Hinge and then you see that he's actually on the show 'Love Is Blind,' and that he met you after the show was filmed, but is still with the same girl right now," the user reportedly said in the video. She also posted a video that featured SK kayaking and screenshots of their DMs and conversations with each other.

But another woman came forward on TikTok, claiming that SK was her ex. While the woman and SK were dating, he allegedly took her on a trip to Europe and revealed he had a fake fiancée from a reality show he did for Netflix for the money, Buzzfeed reported. The woman said she believed him but never got to meet Raven as he promised. SK was reportedly dating the woman in 2019 and they reconciled in Ibiza in 2021 around the time "Love Is Blind" finished filming season three.
Raven posted a subtle TikTok amid allegations
Raven has yet to directly respond to the allegations that SK cheated on her.
But on Tuesday she posted a TikTok video of herself pretending to make a phone call while eating French fries. The text on the video read, "calling god to make sure I'm not on his strongest soldiers list again this year," presumably poking fun at the popular motivational phrase-turned-meme "God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers."
