Throwing it back. Jake Paul and Alissa Violet were one of the internet’s most well-known couples, once upon a time. However, it wasn’t always paradise for the pair.

From 2015 to 2017, the duo was in a rumored relationship full of ups and downs. But according to Alissa, she and Jake were never official.

“We never officially dated, ever. Which there are so many things out there like, ‘Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend,’ and I’m always the ex. It was just hooking up and I’ve chased him for so long and I wanted him to be my boyfriend,” she explained in The Mind of Jake Paul docuseries from 2018. “I was just so confused and confronted him every day like, ‘What are we? This hurts so bad,’ and he was always just brushing it off. We never really established what we were. We were together, but we weren’t.”

Alissa continued, “I tried for so long to change him, to make him a better person. He just never wanted to change. I tried for so long. That’s why I’m so annoyed in all his videos because I don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. I don’t know if we’re together and I try to talk to him about it and he brushes it off and two minutes later, he’s like, ‘Hey, I need you for a video.’ I never knew what we were, ever.”

Jake did admit that he was in love with Alissa, during a separate interview from February 2018. But, she famously hooked up with his brother, Logan Paul.

“Jake lied and said that I cheated, but we were never together,” Alissa claimed during The Mind of Jake Paul, sharing her side of the story. “I was so pissed off, I was so fed up, I was so hurt, I was so disgusted, I was at my breaking point. I hit up Logan and was like, ‘Let’s hang out.’ Then me and Logan hooked up, and I’m still disgusted by it. It’s not who I am and it’s not who I ever wanted to be. I just feel like I was a pawn in their game, they’re always trying to one up each other. I was just used the whole time, in Team 10, in videos.”
