Love Is Blind is in a lawsuit battle involving Netflix and Delirium TV with season 5 contestant Renee Poche concerning Carter Wall. According to Poche, Love Is Blind turned a blind eye to her ex-fiance, Wall’s, flaws. The show continued filming, forcing her to work with him. However, her cut never made it into production.

Love Is Blind Season 5 Lawsuit Involving Renee Poche Versus Netflix And Delirium TV

Netflix and Delirium TV are on the receiving end of the Love Is Blind Season 5 lawsuit. According to the filing obtained by People, Renee Poche explained that she was paired with Carter Wall, who was “a walking red flag.”

Once she noticed, she immediately informed Netflix and Delirium TV, but according to Renee, she was forced to continue. What might have seemed unbearable for Renee behind the camera was to look perfect in front of it as she proceeded with an engagement.

The Love Is Blind lawsuit from the season 5 contestant was met with resistance from the defendants. Netflix and Delirium TV maintained that the former contestant owed them $4 million following her breach of contract. They cited the NDA signed, but Renee has fired back, stating that the contract was “illegal and unenforceable.”

Renee did not make it to the finished material but claimed to have suffered tremendously. Via a statement, she explained that it was a traumatic experience, adding:

“I felt like a prisoner and had no support when I let Delirium know that I didn’t feel safe. I tried to deal with these emotions over time and eventually felt like I needed to share what had happened. I felt it was only right to let others know the truth of what all of the castmates had to endure.”

This is not the first time that Love Is Blind will be hit by a lawsuit from a season 5 contestant. However, the production company has loudly expressed their innocence, claiming that no contestant is bound by contract to remain while filming.

Chris Coelen, Love Is Blind creator, told People:

“The participants are not under our control. They are living their lives. We come in, we film them for a period of time, we leave. They can leave — as many, many, many people have before — anytime they want.”

Neither Carter Wall nor Netflix and Delirium TV have reacted to Renee Poche’s lawsuit. But the former contestant stands by her words. Through her lawsuit, she presented different scenarios that allegedly proved that the production was aware of Carter’s emotional instability.
