The Relationship Between Jake Paul & Erika Costell is a Big, Fat Lie

By  | 

Surprise, surprise… Jake Paul & Erika Costell‘s relationship is totally fake!

Despite having YouTube videos called, “WE ACTUALLY GOT MARRIED…” and “I MARRIED JAKE PAUL (NOT CLICKBAIT),” the ~couple~ formerly known as Jerika actually did clickbait the sh*t out of everyone and is NOT the real deal at all. Jake said so himself!

In a New York Times profile, the 20-year-old former Disney Channel star openly admits to lying about his status with the 23-year-old Gigi Hadid lookalike.

“We’re not even actually dating,” the problematic YouTube star explains. “It’s like the WWE. People know that’s fake, and it’s one of the biggest things of entertainment.”

Weirdly, though, Erika told Refinery29 in an August 2017 interview, “What you see on camera is real.” Umm… what?

“So, yes, we throw some exaggerated stuff in there, but it’s very obvious what is real and what is not,” she continued. “You can only fake so much.

“I don’t think that [fans] would be mad because they can see that there actually is a real connection there,” she added, “and there’s something real basically going on. I don’t think they’d be like, ‘Oh my God, they’re lying to us.’ I think it’s ‘Oh my God, they’re entertaining us. It’s hilarious and we love them together.’ And, of course, there’s going to be people who don’t like me because they watch Jake, or people who don’t like Jake because they like me. Then, there’s people who love us both, and they’re like “Oh my God, out of all the people, I’m so happy that they’re together.'”

Color us confused.
