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.


How to get your 2020 Twitch Recap: A simple guide

Twitch has been rolling out 2020 recaps for both viewers and streamers, letting you see who you watched the most, and if you streamed, how many total viewers you racked up. So, here’s how you can get ahold of yours. 

Over the last few years, services like Spotify and Apple Music have started to give users a recap of their year – showing off who they listened to, how many hours they spent on the app, and also adding a few recommendations for the following year.

Users of other platforms have called for similar things, so they can see just how much time they’ve spent watching videos, listening to music, and even playing games.

Twitch is one of those platforms that has followed suit, giving both viewers and streamers a recap of their 2020 on the platform – including who they watched the most, how many messages they sent in chats, and what their favorite emote to spam was.

To get your hands on your own, account-specific recap – whether you streamed or just watched along with Twitch chat – you don’t have to jump through many hurdles.

Just make sure that the email address you use on your Twitch account is active and can receive emails. If that’s all sorted, then, you’ll get an email from Twitch delivering your stats. 

If you think you’ve already got an email and might have missed it, then simply go into your email inbox and search either your Twitch username or 2020 Twitch recap. It should be there. Also, make sure to check your spam inbox, it might have gotten lost along the way and ended up in there.

That’s all there is to it, really. You don’t have to go to any new website and opt into anything special, just make sure that the email account linked to your Twitch is able to receive emails.

Of course, as nice as it is to see which streamers you’ve wasted far too much time watching, some content creators aren’t happy. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pointed out that the stats are skewed, and his case ruined altogether, for some streamers because of bots.
