YouTuber, model, and music artist Erika Costell has finally spoken out about her breakup with controversial social media star Jake Paul, as seen in a short conversation with the Hollywood Fix.

Costell was met with an interviewer from the Fix outside of a shopping mall on November 23, where she was asked about her upcoming moves following her breakup with the youngest Paul brother.

Costell nonchalantly addressed her split with Paul at the cameraman’s behest, claiming that the breakup was, indeed, for real.

She likewise admitted that she and YouTuber Alissa Violet (also ex-girlfriend to Jake Paul) would likely never rekindle their friendship after the debacle, which followed Shane Dawson’s documentary series covering Paul’s tumultuous relationship with Violet by nearly a month.

“I don’t think so,” Costell said on the matter, replying “yes,” when asked if “that ship had already sailed.”

Costell also revealed that she has several new projects in the works, including new music, telling her followers to “stay tuned” for more information.


Jake Paul announced his split with Costell in a Tweet on November 7, following a whirlwind of breakup rumors surrounding the couple. While sources close to Paul have since revealed that he is looking for another serious relationship, Instagram model Nikki Banner admitted that he had been texting other women the morning after their hookup in late October.

YouTuber KSI has likewise been involved in the drama, calling out Logan Paul in response to the breakup Tweet and dissing Jake during an episode of the Sidemen’s “What’s Good?” podcast. He has since followed Costell on Instagram, as well; while Costell has yet to follow him back, it looks as if she’s focusing on her own career in the interim.

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
