Natalie Lee is setting the record straight after her Love is Blind ex-fiance, Shayne Jansen, ran his mouth on Instagram recently. Shayne used an Instagram story AMA to imply that Natalie and Salvador Perez had gotten together after filming for season 2 wrapped. His evidence? Comments between Natalie and Sal under a photo of Natalie posing in a red dress.
Sal walked down to aisle to Mallory Zapata during the Love is Blind finale episode. He and Mallory had relationship issues surrounding some behind the scenes drama with one of his exes. They decided to call it quits at the altar in the end, deciding that they weren’t ready to commit to one another.
Natalie, according to People, denies any such relationship with Sal. She is adamant that she is not dating anyone from the Love is Blind cast. “I’m friends with most of the men on the cast and I don’t really see — I don’t want to say this too soon — but I haven’t really had a romantic connection with any of them, so nothing there for right now,” she said.
Shayne and Natalie had a *mostly* peaceful ending to their split following the season 2 finale episode. At the time, Shayne shared, “I’m proud of being vulnerable and being as genuine as possible. I don’t know what’s next for us but I do know that I will never stop loving [Natalie].”And though Natalie claims that there is nothing romantic between herself and Sal, she shared that they still remain “close” too.
“I know there’s been speculation — ‘Are you and Sal dating?’ — we are not. We’re just really, really close friends,” Natalie confessed. “That friendship with him I really appreciate as well.” She described Sal as a “very honest” person adding, “I feel like when I talk with him, what you see is what you get, if that makes sense? I also love his calm demeanor. I’m just like, ‘Wow, every time I talk to you, I just feel a bit better and a bit more calm.’ So yeah, he’s a great guy.”
“If I find someone, I find someone. If I don’t, I don’t,” Natalie shared. She added that she is not “actively dating” at this point. She is focused on herself and added that she is “exploring some things,” and that fans should “stay tuned.”
