In 2021, Ventura and Wilder, both of whom were going through divorces then, began an affair bonding over their similar situation. The relationship took a romantic turn in the April of 2021, but did not last long as in September 2021 they separated. However, the separation was not simple as, according to the lawsuit, Ventura faced several instances of Luucas becoming “enraged”.

According to the lawsuit, in May, the pair visited a shooting range and then had a meal at Popeyes during their date. During the ride back home, Lucas purportedly demanded that Ventura perform oral sex on him while driving, but she declined.
