Love Is Blind's Raven and SK Announce Split After Cheating Allegations: 'Forever Shaped Our Lives' In November, news of SK's alleged cheating broke online when a TikToker shared what she claimed were text messages between her and the reality star. SK denied cheating in a statement to Life & Style, noting there was time between filming Love Is Blind and his reunion with Raven where he was a single man. "When Raven and I left the altar, I went about living my life as a single guy and she went about living her life as a single woman," he said at the time. "The path leading to Raven and I together was not straightforward. It took a while for Raven and I to even consider or attempt to start dating again. People don't realize that." Raven and SK.

"Since then, a lot has changed. My world is completely different because, you know, SK cheated on me and now our relationship is over," Raven told cameras. "I was so happy. I really was so invested in the person that everyone saw and everyone loved, like, that's the person that I saw and I loved every day too," she added. "So, to see everything that has happened since then is so hard because that was not the person that I thought that I was with."
