"Love Is Blind" candidate Jessica Batten said she felt like "an idiot" hearing rumors that her ex-fiancé, Mark Cuevas, was cheating on her during their relationship.
In episode 2 of the three-part "After the Altar" reunion, Batten's voice began to tremble as she told other singles about the aftermath of the show. Lauren "LC" Chamblin stepped in, telling Batten that she had a date with Cuevas after the show. During LC's six-week stay with Mark, she says she learned of several rumored affairs on social media.
In April, Cuevas had a baby with girlfriend Aubrey Rainey. He previously told People magazine that he never promised to go out exclusively with LC.
Jessica said there had been red flags throughout their relationship, but she ignored them
According to Batten, she noticed signs that Cuevas might be cheating while they were engaged on Love Is Blind.
During the second reunion episode, Batten recalled a moment when she asked Cuevas why he had been leaving her home for hours. He replied that he had met a girl who opened up to him about her recently deceased father and that he was caught up in a conversation, Batten said.
She added that she believed this woman was Rainey, the mother of his child.
In June 2020, Batten commented on an Instagram post with a photo of her and Cuevas who are still together. One commenter wrote under the photo that "Mark slept with several women" at the gym, where he worked as a personal trainer while filming. Batten replied, "Wow. News for me, I only knew about one."
LC says she asked Mark to be exclusive during the pandemic, but he broke that pact
Batten and Cuevas never married because Batten left him at the altar during "Love Is Blind".
She has since moved to Los Angeles and started dating someone new. At this point, LC began dating Cuevas.
During the reunion, LC said she was doing a drunken review of the movie "Cats" on Instagram when Cuevas sent her a message.
In June 2020, six weeks after their relationship began, LC found a Reddit post showing Cuevas on a date with someone else and ending their relationship shortly after, she said during the reunion.
She also told People she was concerned about the exclusivity because of the pandemic.
"The most important thing I've learned from the show and previous relationships is that I deserve to be treated as a priority rather than an option," LC told People.
