Many Love Is Blind viewers have found Lydia crazy and weird after it was revealed that she previously dated Aaliyah's love interest, Uche. Some Reddit users even believe she went to the show to get Uche back.
You shouldn't hold your breath if you heard someone say that the fourth season of Love Is Blind was the messiest. The drama between the eager singles has been unfolding left and right in Season 5 since the moment it debuted on Netflix.
The connection between Lydia, Uche, and Aaliyah has so far been one of the most significant. As Uche and Aaliyah got to know one another better, Uche confessed that he had dated Lydia, who is also part of the experiment. What makes the situation worse is that Lydia and Aaaliyah were pod partners.
During their time in the show, Lydia formed a solid sisterhood with Aaliyah. However, things took a turn after it was revealed that Lydia and Aaliayah's love interest, Uche, previously dated before the filming of the Netflix show. As a result, many viewers claim Lydia is crazy for betraying her pod partner. Well, let's discuss it in detail.
Viewers Find Lydia Crazy and Insane for Her Behavior: Love Is Blind Season 5 Update!
It was crazy when we first found out that the man Aaliyah (@aalove4_) was dating, Uche to be precise, was previously in a relationship with Lydia (@lavg), who was Aaliyah's pod partner in Love Is Blind.
Lydia and Aaliyah had formed some strong bonds throughout their brief time together in the same space. So it makes sense that Aaliyah was worried when she found out that her new best friend had actually dated the man she was thinking about marrying.

Later, Lydia stated that she was done with Uche. But the significant revelation about their past put some of her prior remarks in a whole new light. When Aaliyah and Uche fought about the fact that she had cheated on a former partner early on, Lydia was there to encourage Aaliyah by giving the impression that she completely understood what she was going through.
Lydia later revealed that she had kept her relationship with Uche hidden from Aaliyah because she didn't want to interfere with their new relationship. At the same time, she also made a point of emphasizing how similar she and Aaliyah were.
She also boasted about how well-versed in Uche's life she was, telling Aaliyah specifics about his dog, car, and home. The last (and devastating) bombshell then detonated. Just three months prior, she and Uche had reconnected and had slept together.

Aaliyah seemed to have had enough. She abandoned the experiment just as Uche was about to make a marriage proposal because she had strong reservations about her future with him (and suspicions that he hadn't been completely truthful about his relationship with Lydia).
Aaliyah abandoned the show the day Uche was about to propose to her.

No doubt, the situation was crazy and Lydia did betray Aaliyah to some extent. She should have revealed to Aaliyah that she and Uche were a thing previously as soon as Aaliyah and Uche got closer.
Additionally, many viewers found Lydia's way of comforting Aaliyah was very weird. Some people even believe she is still not over with her split with Uche and went to Love Is Blind to get back together with him.
Reddit Users Believe Lydia Still Isn’t Over Uche!
After everything that happened between Uche, Aaliyah, and Lydia, some Reddit users believe Lydia isn't over with Uche yet and came to Love Is Blind to rekindle their relationship. One user wrote,
I love that I googled “is Lydia from Love is Blind crazy?” and this was the first search result 😁 Homegirl is nuts. But also, absolutely calculated. Watching ep. 4 now - and I fully believe she went on this show to help “rekindle” her relationship with Uche.
