We had assumed Sikiru "SK" Alagbada and Raven Ross, Love Is Blind's success story, found a lasting connection.

Although the Love Is Blind season 3 couple did not leave the altar as man and wife, they decided to continue their relationship post-production. When we caught up with them during the Love Is Blind season 3 reunion in late 2022, they were going strong. 

Shortly thereafter, however, things took a turn. The internet was abuzz with SK and Raven drama after TikTok videos surfaced of women alleging SK was trying to pursue them—all while engaged to Raven for a second time. By the time we reunited with them in Love Is Blind: After the Altar season 3 in early 2023, we witnessed their second engagement...and split. 

"I really was so invested in the person that everyone saw and everyone loved," Raven confessed to the cameras. "That's the person I saw and loved every day, too."

Now, in a tell-all on Nick Viall's podcast, The Viall Files, Raven shares her story, and we're truly shocked by her allegations. Here's what we know:

Raven Ross, 'Love is Blind' star, on SK's cheating:

During her time on The Viall Files, Raven gave us some insight into what happened when the cameras stopped rolling, and let's just say these shocking allegations will throw hopeful romantics for a loop. 

1. SK's texting was sloppy

SK apparently did not tread lightly when texting Raven and his other love interests. (Exactly who did SK cheat on Raven with? We have the scoop.) After the two ventured to Austin for SXSW, she left to head back to Dallas while he stayed behind. His text messages to her about the remainder of the trip matched his messages to other women "verbatim," per Ross. 

2. SK started 'mini-ghosting' Raven

When the first scandalous video dropped on TikTok, Raven said that SK practically avoided her. "He didn’t answer the phone for a while…a mini ghost… for an hour or two," she revealed. 

3. They watched the second TikTok video together

Shortly after the first woman took to TikTok alleging that SK had pursued her, a second video from another woman surfaced...and SK and Raven watched it together. "We're just sitting in our kitchen and both of our phones start going crazy," Raven recalled of the moment the video arrived.

4. SK took secretive trips

SK celebrated Raven's birthday with her in New Orleans...then a week later, he went to Cabo with a woman and another couple.

When the cheating news first came to light, the couple released a joint statement saying that due to legal matters, they were unable to talk about what had transpired, and no one really knew what to make of it. Allegedly, one of the women who posted the video revealed to SK that she would take it down from TikTok...if he gave her $300,000. Additionally, SK had hired attorneys to help save his reputation. 

"He wanted to get lawyers involved to, like, take these claims away so it wouldn’t look bad for him," Raven said.

6. SK approached Netflix producers

As if the TikTok videos weren't horrific enough, Raven learned from a Netflix producer that SK had been trying to get their engagement scenes removed from the show.

7. SK wouldn't move out

At the height of the drama, SK would not leave his joint apartment with Raven. "I almost felt like he was only staying in our apartment to make sure that I was doing things to play by his rules and make sure I wouldn’t tell the truth," she noted.

8. SK still thinks there's hope

Raven revealed that SK had reached out two weeks before her appearance on the podcast. Though he might be keen on working things out, Raven is enjoying her new relationship, and we wish her the best!
