Congratulations are in order for Deelishis and Raymond Santana of the Exonerated 5. Santana posted a video of himself placing a huge rock on her ring finger to his Instagram account. In the caption he wrote, “Yea it’s official..ya can really hate me now!! @iamsodeelishis is officially off the market...she’s all mine... #GODgavemethegoahead.”
The two have been dating for a little over a month and wasted no time going public with their relationship. Santana posted a “date night” photo with Deelishis for their first date. She’s supported him by wearing and promoting his Park Madison NYC clothing line on Instagram. The two recently took a baecation together to Cancun, Mexico, and fans, who follow the couple on social media, got a chance to see how in love they really are.
Deelishis, born Chandra Davis, first came on the scene as a contestant on VH1’s hit show, “Flavor of Love.” She won season two of the show, but her relationship with Flavor Flav quickly fizzled out after the show ended. She’s now an influencer on social media and has over 3 million Instagram followers.
Santana has captured the hearts of America after Netflix dropped the critically acclaimed “When They See Us” series about the Central Park 5. He and four other men — though boys at the time — were falsely accused of rape and assault and he served five years in prison. He was actually the one who reached out to Ava DuVernay, on twitter, to bring their story to life. Despite being released from prison in 1995, Santana and the rest of the Central Park 5 were not exonerated until 2002. They sued New York for racial discrimination and emotional distress and settled for $41 million in 2014. He has a successful clothing line, which showcases the names of himself and the other four members. Since the mini-series aired, the men officially became known as The Exonerated 5.
