Fans had high hopes for Raven and SK. Love Is Blind season 3 did not end with a wedding for the couple, but they did choose to pursue a relationship once the cameras stopped rolling.
Initially, their romance was blossoming. At the Love Is Blind season 3 reunion in late 2022, Raven Ross and SK Alagbada were excitedly talking about the next steps of their relationship. And during Love Is Blind: After the Altar season 3, we witnessed SK's second proposal to Raven. However, SK and Raven drama erupted in late 2022 after several women took to TikTok to reveal that SK had tried to pursue them.
When Raven Ross appeared on Nick Viall's podcast in early 2023, she made shocking statements about the infidelity and everything she had experienced with SK. Her claims included that he hired attorneys to help salvage his reputation and that he refused to leave their joint apartment when the turmoil unfolded.
"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 said.
Now, SK is speaking out and sharing his side of the story. Here's what we know:
SK 'Love Is Blind' cheating drama: he finally responds
In an exclusive with People (opens in new tab), SK reveals that he does not intend to go on an "apology tour" but feels as though he owes it to Raven to admit where he went wrong. Although he says he did not physically cheat on Raven, he admits to having inappropriate conversations with other women while he and Raven were dating, and he's "not proud" of his behavior. Though his family participates in polygamous relationships, SK claims that is not a lifestyle he "subscribes to and never will."
"I'm finally ready to speak out because I feel like I owe it to Raven and to the whole world watching, and also to myself, to take full accountability for my actions," he told the outlet. "This is not an apology tour. It's really about me owning my actions and taking responsibilities and also just taking the things I've learned from this experience, and I'll continue to learn and grow as a person."
Not unsurprisingly, SK's claims about his relationship timeline differed from Raven's, but he did make mention of two points: one, that Raven's ex was still in the picture, and two: the older gentleman who had been buying glamorous things for Raven—which she made mention of while in the pods—was still in contact with her. Raven denied both allegations.
Though outsiders looking in might not ever know for certain what truly unraveled between SK and Raven, we hope, at least for the couple's sake, that they are taking action to heal, grow and move forward.
Speaking of moving forward, Love Is Blind season 4 will hit screens on Thursday, March 23, meaning a whole new group is venturing into the pods. Netflix has yet to reveal where the experiment is venturing next but rest assured we'll be on the couch, ready to take in a new adventure alongside the hopeful romantics!
Love Is Blind season 3 and Love Is Blind: After the Altar season 3 are now streaming on Netflix.
