Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul has finally explained the circumstances behind his reunion with ex-girlfriend and model Erika Costell at the 2019 Super Bowl - but his story might not be what fans are expecting.
Instead, Paul claimed that they were merely enjoying each other's company, and asked his fans to support them both as they moved on with their careers.
“We were just hanging out,” Paul explained. “We were best friends before we even dated. ...just talking about our feelings and stuff.”
However, that wasn’t the end of his explanation; Paul went on to hint that the two might be an item in the future.
“It’s complicated,” Paul continued. “Yeah, we might date again, maybe not, I don’t even know what I’m saying.”
Some sensitive footage in his vlog likewise hints at a possible tryst between the two YouTubers, where Paul admitted to being with Costell - all the while shirtless and in a towel.
“I enjoyed it, I guess,” Paul said.
Costell herself appeared to hint at the rekindling of their relationship in a response to an Instagram post of her photo with Paul at the Super Bowl, writing, “We look so good here!”
This comment appears to contradict her previous statement on the matter, where she answered with a decisive, “Oh, hell no,” when asked if she was dating anyone during a video filmed in 2018.
