YouTuber and model Alissa Violet confirmed allegations of emotional and mental abuse from social media star Jake Paul in the latest episode of Shane Dawson’s docuseries - and even admitted that their relationship had never been real in the first place.
“We never officially dated,” she said to Dawson during an interview in the Clout house. “Ever. ‘Jalissa’ was fake.”
She revealed that Paul had originally only wanted a ‘YouTube girlfriend,’ using her image in his thumbnails after seeing that they gained more views. She likewise stated that he never officially confirmed their relationship status, and that she felt she was constantly ‘chasing’ him.
Additionally, Violet confirmed that Paul had dragged her down a flight of stairs after a fight, during which he broke her new phone. However, she made sure to clarify that Paul wasn’t a physical abuser - rather, she claimed that he was mentally and emotionally abusive, instead.
“Mentally and emotionally, it’s 100%,” she stated. “... I can’t even remember a conversation where it was like, me walking away feeling good about myself.”
Violet also took issue with Paul’s fans slutshaming her after her expulsion from Team 10.
She likewise held that she had never truly ‘cheated’ on Jake with his brother, Logan Paul, as the two were never officially dating in the first place.
She claimed that she hooked up with Paul out of frustration at being left out of a trip with Team 10, which Jake barred her from participating in because he allegedly wanted to sleep with another woman.
“I’m still disgusted by it, because it’s not who I am,” she said of the situation.
The final episode of Dawson’s series will air on Thursday, October 18, and feature an in-depth interview with Jake Paul.
