Reality series 90 Day Fiancé has dropped one of its stars from season five of spin-off series Before the 90 Days.
Alina Kozhevnikova, who appears in the current season alongside her partner Caleb Greenwood, has been axed from the show following reports she had previously used racial slurs on social media.
According to US outlet People, a number of offensive social media posts – including some dating back to 2014 and 2015 – have resurfaced online in recent weeks.
It's alleged that in the posts, which have since been deleted, Alina used the N-word and also mocked the Muslim community.
In a statement, 90 Day Fiancé's network TLC told People that the show had "discontinued filming" with Alina, although it's uncertain if Caleb will continue to feature.
"TLC discontinued filming with Alina Kozhevnikova following the recent discovery of her past social media statements," a spokesperson said.
"She will not appear on the upcoming Tell All, any future seasons of the franchise and starting next month, she will no longer appear on Before the 90 Days. TLC does not tolerate racism or discrimination of any kind."
Alina is yet to comment on the allegations.
Alina and Caleb are just one of the couples taking part in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, a spin-off of the original series that follows the cast as they prepare to start what's known as the K-1 visa process.
The main show, which first aired back in 2014, charts the relationships of couples who have either applied for or received the visa, a document that gives US citizens and their foreign fiancés 90 days to marry each other.
Other spin-offs include Happily Ever After and The Other Way.
90 Day Fiancé airs on TLC in the US.
