‘Love Is Blind’: Mark Cuevas and LC Break up After Rumors Surface of Him Cheating
Remember Love is Blind? Though it seemed like it aired in another lifetime, the Netflix show just premiered a few months ago. Despite the craziness of the premise of getting engaged without ever seeing your partner, the show did result in a few great couples. Though Mark Cuevas didn’t end the season married, he did start dating one of his fellow castmates Lauren Chamblin, also known as LC. But after rumors started surfacing of him cheating on Chamblin, she left him.
What happened with Mark on ‘Love is Blind’?
Cuevas was involved in one of the most tumultuous relationships on the show. He began connecting with Jessica Batten almost immediately while in the pods. The two got engaged after fellow castmate Matt Barnett chose Amber Pike over Batten. After they were engaged, Batten constantly started stupid arguments with Cuevas, belittled him for his age, and hit on Barnett. Despite all of that, Cuevas still said ‘I do’ on their wedding day. Batten turned him down at the altar and left the show alone.
“It was psychological warfare, for sure, because planning a wedding is stressful enough, I hear,” Batten told Entertainment Weekly of having to go through with the wedding despite knowing she didn’t want to be with Cuevas. “But when you’re planning a wedding with someone that I knew I didn’t want to marry him, we weren’t ready for that, and we actually had multiple conversations and we were both on the same page about that. We weren’t ready to marry each other in that allotted amount of time that we had. We were very much on the same page about that.”
LC leaves Mark
Cuevas and Chamblin started dating after the show wrapped, but that all came to an end when a now-deleted Reddit post called “My close friend’s co-worker is dating Mark!!” was found by Chamblin.
“This is awkward because I live in Atlanta and I’ve been dating Mark since the beginning of May,” Chamblin responded. “Oh and btw, this is LC from ‘Love is Blind.’ Feel free to DM me on Instagram if you would like more information! But I definitely just broke it off with Mark so I really do appreciate you posting this and saving me the energy on dating another liar.”
Apparently, the relationship hadn’t been made exclusive yet.
“Mark and I were casually dating, but talked about remaining exclusive, especially because of Covid-19, but that’s over now,” Chamblin said in a statement to People.
Cuevas made sure to emphasize the nature of their relationship.
“I enjoyed spending time with LC for a few weeks, but at no point were we in an exclusive relationship, as LC confirmed herself. I wish her the absolute best,” he said.

Mark may have cheated on Jessica too
This instance may not have been the only time that Cuevas was unfaithful. When E! News reposted the story of Cuevas and Chamblin breaking up, a fitness instructor commented with some interesting information.
“Mark was sleeping with multiple women at the studio he trained at during the show,” the person wrote. “Maybe show those interviews with his workers next time @netflix.”
Batten commented on the post.
“Wow news to me,” she wrote. “I only knew about one.”
