The pilates instructor and Alagbada, who met and began their whirlwind romance on the show, called it quits in November after allegations of Alagbada cheating surfaced. Ross recently spoke to PEOPLE about her new relationship and why she feels this could be the one.
Raven Ross Is Dating And Hopes To Be Engaged In 2023
Ross told PEOPLE that she’s been on a few dates since breaking it off with Alagbada, but this new relationship is going really well. She’s even manifesting it to be a long-term relationship that includes a proposal.
“I truly believe in being very specific, because it always works. But I am going to be engaged this year. I really feel like I am,” she said. “I’m going to say it out loud – I really feel like I’m going to be engaged this year. I mean, [he’s] definitely the front-runner for sure. Yeah. Oh my gosh, I’m obsessed.”
Being in the public eye because of the reality show and the very public breakup means Ross had to have some open conversations with her new beau. “I think he had seen the show, but he’s a guy so he doesn’t really see or follow [the SK drama]. I’ve definitely had to explain a lot of things, and that’s not easy,” she explained. “That’s super awkward. But it’s only brought us closer together so far, so it’s going really well. We’ll see.”
Raven Ross And SK Alagbada Cut Ties Not Long After Breaking Up
This new relationship comes only months after her second breakup from Alagbada. The couple decided not to wed during the show’s finale, but reconnected after, picking up where they left off. In November, a TikToker shared alleged text messages between her and Alagbada that appeared to point to infidelity. While he denied the accusations, Ross broke it off. Ross said it was “the toughest thing I’ve ever had to go through.”
“I think [getting engaged again] did make it a little harder, because we were going from such a high place,” she told PEOPLE. “Our relationship was going really, really well to then such a low place. It was really hard.”
She continued explaining that this was the first breakup with someone she was really invested in, so it was more difficult than previous breakups. “I’ve never been so upset, ever. It was a crazy situation for sure,” she said. “It was the toughest thing I’ve ever had to go through, but it made me grow so fast from that and realize what I don’t want.”
After splitting, the two still stayed in contact, but Ross eventually realized she needed to cut ties completely. “Early on, totally, we were still communicating. We were completely not together, but this is a person who was a huge pillar in my life,” she said. “It’s hard to give up that part of yourself. But yeah, pretty early on after, I realized it does not serve me to still be in communications with him, so we’ve had to set that boundary and we haven’t spoken.”
