WARNING! THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR LOVE IS BLIND SEASON 5!
Uche Okoroha and Aaliyah Cosby’s connection weathered a lot on Love Is Blind season 5, and there are updates about their relationship status. Uche and Aaliyah formed a strong bond in the pods over their love of spoken word poetry and creative natures. However, their bond was derailed after Uche dropped the news that he had been in a relationship with Lydia Velez Gonzalez before. Lydia befriended Aaliyah in the pods, knowing she had a love connection with Uche. Lydia began telling Aaliyah things she didn’t want to hear about her relationship with Uche, and it pushed Aaliyah over the edge.
Aaliyah left the experiment without telling Uche or giving him an explanation or way to reach her. The previous day, Aaliyah had made it seem to Uche that she could move past the Lydia drama and was ready for a future with him. After time in the pods, Uche and Aaliyah met up to talk. Aaliyah expressed her interest in continuing a relationship based on the foundation they built, and Uche expressed his hesitation. Lydia went on to get married to Milton Johnson, but not before Uche called out Lydia’s concerning behavior while they were dating. He confronted Lydia and Milton at a reunion BBQ before the wedding.
