‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ stars slam Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux

After Cerza-Lanaux said he would take a paternity test because he wanted to be involved in Soares’ baby’s life if he was the father, he received backlash from his Bravo co-stars. One of the most outspoken was Macrae who called out the deckhead for only trying to save face publicly.

“JL, why do you continue to lie through your teeth? Please keep this disgustingly desperate attempt to save face and blame Dani, off of social media. It’s pathetic,” Macrae replied to Cerza-Lanaux’s Instagram post. “We in her circle have seen first hand how you have treated her for the last 9 months. So again, man the f*** up and do what’s right for this poor little girl, AND KEEP IT OFF SOCIAL MEDIA.”

Even former Below Deck star Kate Chastain threw shade at Cerza-Lanaux on Twitter on Father’s Day.

“I wonder how Jean Luc is celebrating today,” the Bravo alum tweeted.

Why is Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux making public statements?

One thing that people are criticizing about how Cerza-Lanaux is that he is handling this situation out in the open. The Below Deck Sailing Yacht responded to all those critics slamming him for making statements on Instagram claiming it’s “the only way” he has to clear things up.

“It’s the only way I have to set the record straight about me not wanting to be involved if the baby is mine. I absolutely do. It’s also the same platform [Soares] blocked me on 12/31,” the reality star added.

Cerza-Lanaux he was taking action into getting a paternity test and wants to do it in person versus an at-home test kit. He also added that he had been in contact with Soares as she had messaged him through WhatsApp.

The deckhead also said that he had kept his comments open on Instagram “because it’s real.” Fans of Below Deck Sailing Yacht were harsh as they didn’t hold back their thoughts on the situation.

“Don’t believe you. The whole crew has seen her texts to you. Keep on lying,” a fan replied.

“OK but you threw her under the bus by saying she blocked you on this platform,” a viewer noted. “Aside the fact that there are multiple ways you can contact someone… being blocked on IG is hardly a reason.”

“This post didn’t make you look better. You and your mom should stop bashing her. Imagine the baby seeing the comments you and your mom made when she gets older regardless of if she is yours or not,” an Instagram user said.
