In the wake of scandalous cheating allegations and a high-profile breakup, Sikiru “SK” Alagbada is speaking out in an effort to clear his name.
As we previously reported, Love Is Blind stars SK and Raven Ross recently announced their decision to part ways. The pair were featured on season 3 of the hit Netflix series, and they appeared to be going strong as recently as the show’s reunion special.
This split notably came after a TikToker going by @emmwho9 blasted SK in a now-deleted video. She alleged that she went on a date with SK while he was supposedly committed to Raven, Buzzfeed reports.
“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.”
Another now-deleted allegation was soon made a woman named Hannah (@hannahbethstyle), who said she dated SK while he was engaged to Raven. She also posted receipts showing the two interacting and even going on a trip to Europe.

He Says The Allegations Stem From “Misconceptions”
SK addressed the allegations last week by saying he and Raven “left the Love Is Blind altar as single individuals.”
However, he added that they were able to “rekindle [their] relationship after the fact.”

Now, he’s doubling down and saying that the cheating rumors are “false” in a statement to Life & Style. Additionally, SK is blasting the allegation that he previously dated Hannah, as he says their situation was “never formal” and did not result in an actual relationship.
“All the allegations about me cheating are false. At no point did we consider each other boyfriend and girlfriend. She is not my ex…The situation between Hannah and I was never formal.”
He went on to reiterate that he and Raven “were not dating” back while he was talking to Hannah. He added, “A lot of people have misconceptions about the timeline of our relationship.” Nonetheless, he admitted that the situation is not exactly “straightforward.”
“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. 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.”
So, according to SK, he never actually cheated on Raven, despite the relationship timeline being a little murky.
Do you believe SK Alagbada and his explanation? Also, how do you feel about the breakup in general?
