Colleen and Matt from Love is Blind series 3 have addressed the criticism about their relationship.

Colleen Reed and Matt Bolton had a tumultuous relationship on Love is Blind series 3 after meeting in the pods, but despite their differences they both said ‘yes’ at the altar.

However, like a number of the contestants on the show, they are now facing criticism about their relationship after the series – which saw them get engaged without meeting – aired on Netflix.

They also claimed she looked uncomfortable at the Love is Blind reunion.

In a new interview, the couple have hit back at the remarks, with the ballet dancer calling them: “Completely not true.”

Speaking to Us Weekly, she said: “What’s frustrating with what people do say about our relationship is that these really harsh assumptions, that’s really tricky to talk about. And it’s just completely wrong. It’s completely not true. And it’s really sad what people are saying.”

She continued: “We’re just surrounding ourselves around our family and our friends who have been nothing but supportive. Not once has someone said in our lives, in our everyday lives like, ‘Oh, should we be worried or listening to these comments?’

“They’ve actually just told us the same thing — be true to ourselves. They know us, we know us, we’re fine. So I would say that’s the biggest thing that we would wanna clear up is that these things that people are saying are just absolutely not true.”

Matt agreed it’s ‘been tough’ to see the speculation, saying the comments ‘started getting really nasty online.’

He added: “We know how we are. We know who we are and we love each other to death and we’re just continuing to do our thing. That’s a tricky topic to discuss, but yeah, it hurt being accused of some of the things that people are saying.”

Matt also explained that the pressure of getting married within five weeks took its toll, admitting he handled their argument on their honeymoon ‘dead wrong.’
