She said, “I had this gut feeling after really analyzing my interactions with Uche, Lydia, getting all the facts and things, or at least hearing both sides of that situation. Just decided I didn’t want to go into an engagement that way.” 

The two exes ended up running someone out of pods. Maybe they’re just destined for each other?
