'Love Is Blind' star Jeramey's ex-fiancée Brittani says she also caught him cheating on her via location-sharing

'Love Is Blind' star Jeramey's ex-fiancée Brittani says she also caught him cheating on her via location-sharing
  • "Love Is Blind" star Jeramey Lutinski caught flak when it was revealed he was engaged right before the show.

  • Now, his ex is speaking out exclusively to Business Insider.

  • She says she broke up with him for cheating on her and suspects he was talking to "Love Is Blind" casting while they lived together.

There was no shortage of "Love Is Blind" drama this season, and a lot of it happened off-screen.

TikTokers like @storytimewithrikkii and @realityashley have had all the major tea, even breaking the news that a woman said she was dating former fan-favorite Trevor Sova before and all throughout filming the show. But the reveal of Jeramey Lutinski's past engagement really got people talking.

The story picked up traction when Rikkii broke it all down in a video shared on February 22 that has 4.7 million views to date.

After the story went viral, Jeramey took to Instagram to share a video of himself explaining his side, saying that his relationship had ended "a number of weeks" before the "Love Is Blind" casting process started and that he wasn't living with anyone at the time casting reached out to him. He also said that while his house had sold right before filming, it had been listed since "October or November" of 2022.

Jeramey also said that his previous engagement wasn't a secret — his conversations about it just weren't shown on the series — and shared a screenshot of a conversation with "Love Is Blind" casting that started on November 30, 2022.

Still, fans were more aggrieved at the idea that Jeramey, who's been widely criticized for his admittedly poor handling of his breakup with Laura Dadisman on the show, was only very recently out of a serious relationship before taking part in the experiment — regardless of whether it was technically over when he started the casting process.

Now, Jeramey's ex-fiancée, North Carolina hairdresser Brittani McLiverty, has broken her silence on their past relationship in an exclusive email interview with Business Insider.

When reached for comment, Jeramey told BI via email: "My past relationship has nothing to do with where I currently am in life or anyone I may be currently seeing. I will not be addressing this any further."

Brittani says she broke up with Jeramey after discovering he cheated on her — which she found out about thanks to location-sharing

Brittani says her relationship with Jeramey started in March 2020 and the two got engaged in December 2020. She says she broke things off with him in mid-October 2022 after "discovering his infidelity with a woman he sought out on a dating app."

She says she caught him cheating in a similar way to how Laura found out about Jeramey meeting up with Sarah Ann and "driving her home": via location-sharing.

"He was sharing his exact location on Snapchat with all of his 'friends' and didn't realize it," Brittani tells BI. "That was how I caught him lying about where he was. He was telling me he was in a different location and I could see exactly where he was."

"I could see him in real time, as he was driving home, so essentially the exact same way as Laura would've seen on her end," she adds. "When he got home, I discovered that he sought the other woman out on a dating app."

As shown in @storytimewithrikkii's video, Jeramey's past engagement was first revealed when a woman named Jenni Gelven Daniel posted about it in a "Love Is Blind" season six Facebook fan group.

"Someone was engaged and living with someone when applying for this….," she wrote, alongside a photo of Jeramey with a woman and child whose face was edited out for privacy. When a commenter asked where the poster had found the photo, the poster replied: "In my phone. That's my daughter and grandson."

Jenni is indeed Brittani's mother and it is Brittani in the photo Jenni shared. Brittani tells BI she wasn't blindsided by her mom publicizing her past relationship with Jeramey; she was aware her mom might post the picture but didn't know where or when she'd share it.

"I told her I didn't care if it was posted," she says.

Brittani confirms that, as she told @storytimewithrikkii previously, Jeramey moved out of their home on November 20, 2022 — 10 days before the message Jeramey posted from "Love Is Blind" casting — but says he left his dog Layla with her at their house.

"We were still kind of back and forth at that point," she says.

While Jeramey has maintained that he'd moved out by the time the "Love Is Blind" casting process started, Brittani isn't so sure.

"I had several reasons that I suspect he applied/was interviewing with casting while we were still living together," she tells BI. "But I do not have proof of that."

Brittani says Jeramey's 'Love Is Blind' ex-fiancée, Laura, hasn't responded to her outreach

In addition to Jenni's post about Brittani and Jeramey's past engagement, Brittani took to Instagram in an attempt to clarify the situation to Laura, who got engaged to Jeramey on the show, and Sarah Ann Bick, the woman he reconnected with after his breakup with Laura and is very likely dating now.

"Did he ever tell you about his ex-fiancé from right before you? Surely not…" Brittani commented on Laura's post announcing her casting on the show. "Or the house WE sold a week or two before he filmed for this show?"

"Just want all the info out there. You and Sarah Ann should know," she wrote in a follow-up comment. "I'm happy to share proof."

But according to Brittani, neither Sarah Ann nor Laura took her up on that.

Brittani says she was "immediately blocked by Sarah Ann" and never heard back from Laura.

Brittani thinks Jeramey's rental home in 'Love Is Blind' looked weirdly familiar

That recently sold house Jeramey mentioned in his pod dates? Yep, that was the home he once shared with Brittani.

"We bought/built/owned our home together (lived in it together for a year) and sold it mid-March of 2023," she says, adding that Jeramey's rental unit featured in the show "looks weirdly similar to the finishes I chose in our house."

"His utensils look awfully familiar," she says. (BI viewed a picture of the utensils in Brittani's former home and can confirm they're the same style as the distinctive gold cutlery set Laura commented on when she visited Jeramey's rental in episode eight.)

While Brittani did not tune in to see her ex's journey unfold on the show for obvious reasons, she says she's seen "multiple clips" of it and doesn't think his edit is unfair.

"From what I've seen, I think he has been portrayed accurately thus far," she tells BI.

The "Love Is Blind" season six reunion, which may or may not address this whole thing, airs Wednesday, March 13 at 9 p.m. ET on Netflix.
