YouTube star Logan Paul notably parted ways with ex-girlfriend Josie Canseco in mid-February, with sources close to the model claiming that she felt he was using her for her fame — but Paul tells a different story.
After a long season of being single, Paul was spotted holding hands with Canseco at the Rose Bowl Flea Market on January 12, spurring rumors that the two were keeping a low-profile on their new romance.
However, things quickly shut down between the two, with reports stating that the couple had broken up about a month later.
According to sources close to Canseco, the model felt that her YouTube beau “wasn’t the right man for her” and even said that she felt he was using her for her fame after ghosting his texts and calls.
This subject was brought up during Logan’s appearance on the No Jumper podcast on February 25, which prompted the YouTuber to explain his side of the story and clear up any misinformation regarding their split.
He explained that Canseco had wanted more from their relationship than he was willing to give, calling himself “selfish” and stating that he wants to make “himself happy first.”
“I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can give more right now,’” he clarified. “‘This is the best I got.’ ...I wasn’t, in this particular scenario, ready to give myself in that way. She left my house that night… we haven’t texted or spoken since.”
Thus, it doesn’t look like the ghosting was one-way: instead, it was a mutual parting, with the content creator claiming that the two just weren’t right for each other.
“It was a very mutual, like okay, it’s clear this was fun, but we’re not compatible,” he continued. “At the end of the day, we’re not. She doesnt like ‘The Book of Mormon.’ That was a problem for me!”
