Watch: Love Is Blind's Irina Apologizes for "Immature" Behavior

She's no longer turning a blind eye.

Irina Solomonova is apologizing to both Love Is Blind viewers and her co-stars for her "immature and naïve" behavior during the first eight episodes of season four.

"The first thing I want to say is that I have privately apologized to the people that I have hurt and mistreated," she said in her April 2 Instagram video. "Second of all, I wanted to say I am so, so, so sorry for the people that watched the show that felt frustrated, angry, hurt by the way that I was mistreating people on the show."

In her message, the Netflix star specifically named five castmates—including her former fiancé Zack Goytowski and Micah Lussier, who recently shared remorse over her eyebrow-raising behavior.

"Zack, Bliss [Poureetezadi], Amber [Wilder], Jackie [Bonds], Micah: none of those people deserved to be treated the way that I treated them," she explained. "I know that none of those things were okay. Even Zack, he was so vulnerable with me and I so mistreated him and shut him out."

Throughout the first half of season four, Irina has been at the center of a majority of the TV drama.

At one point in the pods, she and Micah could be seen laughing at their fellow female participants while they were crying. Additionally, Irina allegedly instigated cupcake and grilled cheese-based warfare with Bliss as they both attempted to date Zack.

Plus, despite being friends, Irina eventually revealed she was interested in Micah's fiancé Paul Peden after actively flirting with him in Mexico while simultaneously losing interest in her own fiancé prior to their breakup (Zack subsequently got engaged to Bliss).

"Truly, I want to add value to people and I want to make people feel seen and who I was on the show was the complete exact opposite of that person," the business owner shared. "I feel like being on the show was like getting a mirror put in front of your face, in the sense of seeing yourself from a different perspective. That opened up so much to me and I'm still processing and going through everything that happened."

While not going into too much detail, Irina also indicated that she was going through her own personal issues while filming the dating series.

"I hope that one day I get to share my experience and what was going on with me emotionally during that experience," she noted. "But until then, I just appreciate you for watching this and listening to this."

Irina's apology comes nearly a week after co-star Micah's own mea culpa.

"To the viewers that I've hurt, I'm sorry I've triggered so many of you with my behavior," she shared in a March 28 Instagram Story. "Seeing that person on the screen would make me feel the same anger."

Micah continued, "I have apologized privately to the people that were hurt on the show by my hands... I would like to apologize publicly. An emotional immaturity was shown and I will grow from it."

See if the rest of Love Is Blind season four turns up the drama, Fridays on Netflix.
