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 heck 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 admitted to lying about his relationship status with the 23-year-old Gigi Hadid lookalike.
“We’re not even actually dating,” the YouTube star explains. “It’s like the WWE. People know that’s fake, and it’s one of the biggest things of entertainment.”
In an especially odd twist, however, Erika told Refinery29 in an August that QUOTE “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.”
She went on to defend the semi-fabricated relationship saying QUOTE
“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.’”
So there you have it, Jake Paulers. The truth – Jerika is not real, their lack of chemistry in their love song music video wasn’t a joke, and I guess that means he’s single if any of you are interested?
