YouTuber David Dobrik has cleared up the long-running joke that he “rejected” singer Madison Beer, after inviting her onto the VIEWS podcast, saying that they “just never dated.”

24-year-old David Dobrik is one of the most popular vloggers on YouTuber, boasting a subscriber base of over 18 million on his main channel alone.

However, he’s recently been turning his attention to other platforms and styles of content, having not uploaded on his main YouTube channel in 9 months. Instead, one of his primary forms of content is the VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, where they invite various guests on to talk about topical stories surrounding their lives and careers.

This time, David and Jason invited singer Madison Beer onto the podcast to talk about her upcoming album, but the conversation of course turning to the ongoing jokes about David supposedly ‘rejecting’ the star.

Many fans have hoped to see David and Madison together.

David has consistently been caught up in dating rumors with various female stars over the years, including Corinna Kopf, and even his own assistant Natalie, but the YouTuber revealed that the rumor about him ‘rejecting’ Madison is one that fans just won’t let go.

Madison brought up the rejection theory and told David to address it, saying, “I’m not even gonna speak, I’m gonna let him take the floor with this and just see where he goes.”

The YouTuber began to explain, “I was saying this to Jason before, I hate the whole rejection thing. Like I hate that people are like, ‘this is the girl who David rejected,'” adding that the better Madison looks in a photo, the more comments there are about the supposed rejection.

Topic starts at 9:50

After the singer claimed that David didn’t seem keen on the idea of them dating when Jason brought it up in a previous podcast, the YouTuber firmly denied this, saying, “I’ve always been like, down…”

When Madison asked him, “have you ever rejected me?” David replied with a firm, “no” followed by a questionable look to the camera. Shortly after he went on to say, “I never rejected you. We just never dated, that’s it. That’s the only story.”

While David seems to have put to bed the rumors that he ever rejected Madison, there’s a good chance that the jokes about the pair will continue in their Instagram comments — and a relationship could still be on the cards.

YouTube star turned amateur boxer Jake Paul is once again calling out Conor McGregor and even reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a new video ahead of his April 17 fight against Ben Askren.

Paul has been relentless in his pursuit of securing a boxing match against the Irishman McGregor, frequently challenging him in videos, making fight offers and videos mocking the UFC veteran.

On February 23, the YouTuber took things a step further by bringing McGregor’s rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov, into the mix, mocking the Russian and his mannerisms.

In the short video, Paul impersonates McGregor, Khabib and Askren in a series of sketches to promote his April 17 bout.

Jake Paul has become a force in the boxing community.

In the first part of the clip, Jake puts on his best Irish accent and pretends to be McGregor having a phone call with UFC President Dana White after his loss to Dustin Poirier.

“Dana, I’m sorry I lost, mate. I bought this fooking Lamborghini though,” he joked.

Next, he pretended to be Khabib while wearing his signature Papakha doing a press conference in the wake of McGregor’s loss at UFC 257.

“This is what happens when you spar little kids, okay? I spar back,” he said in his best Russian accent. “Conor McGregor must respect gym. Conor McGregor no respect gym.”

In perhaps his best skip, Paul put on an afro-style wig and a “Vote for Pedro” shirt combining both Ben Askren and Napoleon Dynamite.

“I just got back from my hip surgery, now I’m going to fight Jake Paul for a bunch of money. I’m going to invest all of it into Siacoin,” the YouTuber mocked.

Askren, however, didn’t take too kindly to the video and didn’t even think it was worth all the effort. In a quote tweet, the 36-year-old called the video “average work at best.”

“The guy has a full-time production staff and he can’t come up with anything better???” Askren asked to the tune of a whopping three question marks.

Knowing Jake, this won’t be the last time he takes aim at Askren ahead of their fight. We’ll have to see if he can walk the walk after all this trash talk when the two step into the ring on April 17.
