Jake Paul knew Olivia Rodrigo had “something special”
It has been quite some time since Jake Paul and Olivia Rodrigo both starred in Bizaardvark, as Paul departed the show in 2017. Since then, the pair have gone on to achieve stardom in their career paths. Speaking to the LA Times, Rodrigo said “He called my success. God, my publicist would not appreciate me saying this. He was very nice to me.”
In separate interviews with Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight respectively, Paul took the chance to respond to Rodrigo’s comments: “She was just so amazing at singing. I said you’re the next Selena Gomez, I’m gonna brag about knowing you someday.”
Paul also added that ” Olivia just had something special” and “she was an amazing actor” during their time together on the Disney Channel. While Rodrigo continues to dominate the charts with her debut album Sour, Paul hopes that “she can walk me out to one of my fights one day.”
Despite detractors alleging that the Tyron Woodley exhibition was rigged, anticipation for Jake Paul’s next fight is heating up. Boxing fans are speculating who Paul could defeat in the future. Who will step into the ring?
