The news stunned many fans as the duo appeared so in love in photos plastered on the internet the week before.
Lennox and Manley are yet to comment on their alleged split. But in the meantime, the former is in "good spirits" while focusing on her upcoming second album and four BET Award nominations. Manley is no different, as his career is his topmost priority at the moment.

WHAT HAPPENED TO KEITH MANLEY AND IRIS CALDWELL?
"Married at First Sight" is a reality series where a group of singles agrees to marry partners chosen for them by a team of relationship experts. For Manley, his love match was Iris Caldwell, whom he married in March 2019.
Caldwell was beautiful and shared similar religious and cultural backgrounds with Manley, so building a steady and strong connection was not an issue.
However, there was one problem, Caldwell was a virgin, which made Manley believe she lacked emotional maturity and relationship experience.
But it was not a problem to Caldwell, as she was ready to give her all to Manley. Unfortunately, on the decision day when the duo was to choose between staying married or getting a divorce, Manley shockingly chose the latter, while Caldwell decided to remain married.
Although Caldwell was hurt, she decided to move on with her life. During a question and answer section on Instagram in November 2019, Caldwell revealed that the last time she saw Manley was during the reunion in September 2019.
She also made it known that they had not yet divorced because the State of North Carolina, where they married, required a one-year separation period before filing for the "no-fault divorce."
Caldwell also confessed that if allowed to appear in another season of the series, she would take the opportunity.
