Is Jake Paul OK? The YouTuber split from his longtime girlfriend Erika Costell back in November, and since then he’s been pretty open about how hard the breakup has been on him. Now, he just sent out an alarmingly dark tweet, and it has his fans pretty worried.
“I wish I could set my emotions on fire and burn them and stomp on them and then flush them down the toilet so they disappear forever,” the 21-year-old wrote on Twitter on Dec. 17, 2018.

Naturally, fans were quick to show the vlogger their support. “Stay strong, Jake. It’ll get better,” one fan tweeted, while another added, “First love break up is the hardest to get over. Just remember it’s better to be alive, so every day, rise and fake it until you don’t need to anymore.”

The troubling message even caught the attention of his ex, since she shared a series of shady tweets soon afterwards. “Damn sometimes being the bigger person is exhausting,” Erika wrote, adding: “It’s OK [though] I’m busy gettin’ stronger.”

As J-14 readers know, Jake and Erika confirmed their split back in November, after fellow YouTube star Keemstar broke the news that they were over. Afterwards, Jake opened up in a YouTube video about the negative effects the breakup has had on him.
“I can’t even focus on [anything] majority of the time because I’m just thinking about Erika or that whole entire situation and it ruins my days and I don’t know how to deal with it at all,” he said. “The whole entire breakup, in general, has made me realize I need to be happy on my own. I put a lot of happiness on Erika and us as a couple and I lost sight of who I was and what made me happy. And I’m not saying that’s a bad thing at all, but it’s kind of weird to go from that to all of a sudden being on your own.”
Ugh, our hearts are truly breaking for the former couple.
