It is no secret that there was always a lot of gray area surrounding Lana and David’s relationship. On the surface, it sounds like the couple has a great thing going. Lana and David have known each other for years. However, David and Lana never actually met. 

Many fans and viewers of 90 Day Fiancé were confident that David was being played by Lana. Things started to get suspicious. There were three incidents in the past that Lana stood up David in the past.

The couple’s mainly communicated through the outdated dating platform David first Lana on. For David, this was an advantage in some ways since this allowed David to use a translator application. 

Recently, David hired a private investigator to look into the manner. When the professional revealed to David that he had zero reasons to believe that Lana was real, David fired him. It seemed like David was avoiding facing the truth.

How was Lana’s identity on ’90 Day Fiancé’ confirmed? 

Fans and viewers of 90 Day Fiancé anxiously watched as David prepared to meet Lana yet another time. The audience truly believed that David was being catfished. However, an accidental leak of the show’s footage has shocked fans and viewers everywhere. As luck would have it, Lana is in fact real.

According to Screen Rant, one source explained the video content accidentally ended up on YouTube as the result of a cast member. When the mistake was realized the footage was taken down, but the damage was done. Word had broken out that the video did in fact confirm Lana’s identity and relationship status with David. The leaked footage shocked fans everywhere and blew-up social media. The inside footage spurred a lot of questions.

Many people would think that since Lana’s identity is confirmed for the first time ever that people would be more willing to believe in David’s relationship, but that does not seem to be the case. Some fans and viewers are still feeling hesitant about the whole situation. 

There is one piece of information that a lot of fans and viewers are probably curious about. If David was so confident in Lana and in his relationship why did he never take the time to learn Russian?

It seems ludicrous that David would seriously date someone for multiple years without making any attempt to try to learn more about his partner’s language.

One explanation could be that David wasn’t so sure if he would ever meet Lana. At the moment, anything seems like a possibility on 90 Day Fiancé

Nevertheless, the thought of David needing to hire a translator for the two to communicate in real life is a tad bizarre.

However, what else is the couple supposed to do? If David likes Lana as much as he says he does, this is something he will probably want to get serious about.

Hopefully, since David has proved the world wrong about Lana, he can now focus on learning how to speak Russian, so he can better communicate with Lana.
