During the Temptation Island Reunion, Erin broke up with Corey because they had fallen into their same toxic patterns and Erin felt like he wasn’t being truthful about his experience on the island.
After Erin declared that she was completely done with the relationship, Corey posted a picture of the two of them right after The Reunion aired, which shocked fans.
The main issues Corey and Erin faced on the island were Corey’s inability to stand up to Erin’s intimidating and belittling demeanor, and Erin’s lack of emotional availability. Corey wanted Erin to accept him for who he is and not compare him to past relationships while Erin wanted him to stand up and have more of a voice.
Erin made it clear on The Reunion that she was upset by Corey’s lack of communication when she wanted to know more about what happened between him and Amanda on the island because there were rumors that they hooked up.
Erin also confessed that she eliminated Shaquille because she had feelings for him, which left viewers confused if she wanted to pursue something in the wake of breaking up with Corey.
