In the clip, she sobbed, “That really sucks. I do not even know. many things have changed since then. my world is completely different because SK cheated on me now that our relationship is over.
“It’s so crazy to look back and remember my feelings back then. I was so happy. I really was so invested in this person that everyone saw and loved. That’s the person I saw and also loved every day.
“So to see everything that happened is so hard because that’s not the person I thought I was with.
“I can’t imagine opening up to someone like I did for SK. That has always been my personal challenge.
“It’s a blessing in disguise and I can take that into another relationship and I know in my heart that I still believe in love – but this is someone I trusted – I know love is coming for me.”
But SK, who denies ever “physically” cheating on Raven, has denounced his ex for the footage, claiming they had agreed not to comment publicly on the allegations.
He told PEOPLE: “Raven and I had initially decided not to make an already messy situation even more messy, and just avoid dramatizing our personal private affairs. That was the deal we both had… we’re just not going to take it.
“I didn’t know Raven went behind (my back) and recorded that post-proposal response. So when I first watched that all over again, saw it play out on screen like that, I was really surprised, because I thought, ‘I thought we weren’t going to do this.’”

He added that he saw “red flags” after they rekindled their romance, claiming that Raven was more interested in building her brand than settling down.
SK stated, “I’m not saying this to make excuses for my actions because the most honorable thing you could have done at that point would have been to end the relationship if I felt like we weren’t both in it.”
“But I also saw that both of us were deliberately trying to make an effort to make it work between us. It’s just important to me to let people know that this wasn’t a case of a happy, hassle-free relationship that I just screwed up for no reason.
“Our relationship had serious, real-life challenges, coupled with the pressure to do this in the most public way possible and do something on our own terms, that made it very difficult.”
The decision to rekindle their romance came after fans were completely shocked when SK decided not to go through with their marriage.
After saying “I do” at the altar, Raven was left completely devastated when SK didn’t exchange the same vows, instead walking away from their ceremony.
Since there was a long pause before he gave his answer, SK’s mother Adeola could be seen saying a hopeful ‘yes’ before looking disappointed when he gave the opposite answer.

He explained his shocked decision at the altar and said, “Today Raven, we both know how we feel about each other, I love you.” However, we have a very unique and complex set of circumstances.
“I feel like today is not the best time for us to do this.”
Despite Raven’s devastation, the couple shared a hug at the altar before Raven walked away from the ceremony.
In a sweet moment afterward, SK’s mom visited Adeola Raven in her honeymoon suite and gushed about how she “loved her,” lending her support through the tough time.
“I just want to let you know, I like you, I love you so, so much! I wish this would happen today, but I don’t know what SK means,’ Adeola said.
After the ceremony, SK admitted that he knew he was in danger of losing her forever because of his decision, with Raven admitting she was upset by the outcome of the wedding.
During the first reunion show, filmed shortly after the experiment ended, the pair revealed that despite being roughly three hours flying time apart, the beloved pair confirmed they hit it off, while Raven talked about their “beautiful” relationship.
In the series, the couple had found the prospect of long-distance marriage challenging, as SK had committed to going back to college in California, while Raven lives in Dallas.
Speaking about the challenges of long distance, she said, “Our communication, I think I can speak for both of us, we’ve never been to this level in any other relationship, every time I think we reach a new level, nothing is perfect, but we’ve grown so much from this experiment.
“Being apart, it makes it so much better when we are together. Of course I would prefer to be with him every day, but we’ve grown out of it and it’s very nice to do that.’
In December, a woman named Hannah claimed to have been in a relationship with SK during his time on Love Is Blind.
Shortly after her TikTok video went viral, the couple shared a joint Instagram statement announcing their breakup.

SK subsequently released a statement denying the allegations.
He told Life & Style, “We (Hannah and SK) never considered each other boyfriend and girlfriend at any point. She’s not my ex… The situation between Hannah and me was never formal.’
SK claimed that the path of his relationship with Raven was “never straight forward,” SK stressed, “A lot of people have misconceptions about the timeline of our relationship.
“When Raven and I left the altar, I lived my life as a single man and she lived her life as a single woman.”
