Gael Has a Boyfriend

In the confessional Gael Cameron states that “I’m still in a relationship, and I feel like I’m definitely having stronger feelings than I need to have in this moment. I need to go to sleep.” Gael had a conversation with Aesha Scott in Episode 2 about her relationship with her boyfriend not she had been with him for 5 months.

Gael Cameron tells Aesha Scott  “at the moment, our relationship is a little bit of a long shot,” she said. “We’re still trying to figure out the total trust factor. Like, I know he’s a bit of a flirtatious person, and what happens when he’s on a boat full-time with some really attractive girls?”

Aesha Scott responded to Gael Cameron “Scott and I have been together for three and a half years. There’s not been one time I’ve ever been paranoid. So I just think if you’re worried about each other, then surely it’s not right.”

Aesha Scott Defends Gael Cameron

Fans of Below Deck Med have been quick to criticize Gael Cameron for her relationship with Nathan  Gallagher. Aesha Scott was there to defend her friend Gael. Aesha admitted “as someone who was her roommate and witnessed her relationship with her current boyfriend — when she came on [the boat], that relationship was not in a great stable situation.” She continued to say “Some of the messages that he would send her and the way that he would speak to her wasn’t very nice. And I think that whole thing was very insecure to start with, and they’d only been together a few months.”
