Christian and Cleo
During season 6, Christian faced backlash for flirting with other women during his relationship with Cleo. Though the couple ended the season feeling unsure that they could continue on together, Cleo seemingly defended Christian from the haters in July 2023.
“I feel that some of the things being said, although I totally understand that they come from a place of like genuine support are pretty strong and at the end of the day, there’s people behind the screen and those things have an impact and it doesn’t, you know, make me feel any better to see like, you know, things being said about other people,” she said in a video at the time. “I just want you all to be able to watch the rest of the story with a nonjudgmental mind. At the end of the day, there’s no need to press judgment this early on.”
Christian and Cleo confirmed their relationship status on part 1 of the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 6 tell-all. Shortly after the episode aired on September 24, they went Instagram official.
“Cat’s out of the bag! I can finally post about Cleo and I without spoiling it for y’all fans of the show!” he captioned a photo of him and Cleo having drinks. “Here’s just a photo of us together in Minnesota enjoying some cocktails and dinner with good friends.”
However, Cleo later confirmed on October 25 that she and Christian had split because they “could not deal with the complexities of a long-distance relationship while on such a public scale.”
“Please respect our privacy,” Cleo wrote on Instagram. “Please understand I love him and will always love him, I don’t regret the fact he came into my life, I was hoping we could be a happily ever after, but we have very different personalities and emotional needs, and that was excruciatingly painful for both.”
She continued, “This isn’t because we don’t love each other. He will forever be in my heart, we’ve supported each other a lot in this past over a year and a half, I wish him all the best, I will love him forever. Neither of us are perfect, I’m very insecure and codependent, please don’t send him any hate.”
