Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul fell in love on Bachelor in Paradise. On this last season, fans saw Lacy and Marcus get married on the beach and confirm that they are still together. Now, the two are sending out a lot of mixed signals to fans, and everyone is starting to wonder if they have split. Reality Steve went to his blog today to answer a fan who was curious about their status.
If you remember correctly, TMZ shared that Marcus and Lacy’s wedding was actually fake. The couple didn’t get a wedding license in the United States or in Mexico, so this wedding was not legally binding. It sounds like it was all just for ratings, and Lacy and Marcus never really tied the knot. There was a lot of speculation that Lacy and Marcus would have another ceremony, but if that happened, nobody ever heard about it.
Marcus Grodd actually left and went to do training for the Coast Guard, and the couple were not near each other for a while. They have never shared that there was any trouble in paradise, but Lacy and Marcus have fans talking now. They have actually removed each other from their social networks. Here is the answer that Reality Steve had about if Lacy and Marcus are still together or not.
“It’s obvious something is up. I just don’t want to use social media to jump to any conclusions. But the facts are that neither of them have posted a picture of, or with, the other in 8 weeks (when before that time, every single picture they posted was with each other), neither of their bios state they’re even married to the other person, and neither of them even reference the other one. So yeah, something doesn’t seem right, but I don’t want to flat out say they’re done just because of social media. Maybe Lacy enjoys everyone asking her on every picture if her and Marcus are still together because she wants the attention? I don’t know. But until they come out and say something, all anyone can do is speculate based on what we see. And those facts don’t point to a couple that seems to be doing great. Maybe they’re on a break? Maybe they decided to stop sharing every 4 seconds of their life on Instagram? Seems rather extreme to go from what they used to do, to completely ignoring the other one. But then again, these people are weird so anything is possible.”
So the reality is that Steve doesn’t really know what is going on with Marcus Grodd or Lacy Faddoul either. Lacy was recently at the Rose Parade, but Marcus was nowhere to be seen. He is very busy in the military, and this could explain what kept him away from Lacy.
Lacy Faddoul did send out a tweet yesterday that she tagged Marcus in, though. This makes it look like Lacy and Marcus might still be together. If not, they are not ready to tell the world the truth.
This was the first time that Lacy Faddoul had mentioned Marcus Grodd in a long time. Thirteen weeks ago, Lacy shared a photo on Instagram and said that there is a lot more to their lives than a television show. This showed Marcus in a Marine uniform, and the two were obviously together at that point. The military can easily make it hard for a couple to be together all the time, and that could be all that is going on with Lacy and Marcus.
Do you think that Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul are still together? Did this couple ever get married, or was it all just for ratings on Bachelor in Paradise? Sound off in the comments below on your thoughts, and don’t miss new episodes of The Bachelor with Ben Higgins on Monday nights on ABC.
