They were rumored to have been engaged. She is simply the fiancée, according to current sources, but her whereabouts are unknown at this time.

Reed, then 28-year-old traveled to Russia in 2019 with Lina Tsybulnik. He went to Moscow to learn the language. But, he could not return, as he was arrested by the Russian police for intoxication and assault charges and taken to jail to sober up.
The problem worsened when it was discovered that he had been treated inhumanely in jail.
