When fans noticed that Jake Paul and Erika Costell went to the Super Bowl together on February 3, they totally freaked out. Ever since, we’ve all been wondering what the deal is between these two. Why did they go to the game together? Are they dating again? Are they just friends? Well, good news, you guys. The YouTube star just explained the status of their relationship in his latest video. Phew!
So what exactly is going on between these former flames? We’re so glad you asked! According to the 21-year-old, they’re not dating. However, there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between the two, so at the very least, they appear to be great friends.
The vlogger said, “We just were hanging out. Like, we were best friends before we even dated, so yeah, you know, just talking about our feelings and stuff.” How interesting…
We know what you’re thinking: OK, so they’re not back together at the moment, but are they considering it for the future? All we can say is, if you’re a Jerika shipper, all hope is not lost.
In addition to confirming that the two are not currently dating, the “It’s Everyday Bro” singer said, “It’s complicated. Yeah, we might date again, maybe not, I don’t even know what I’m saying.” Uh, what?
Well, you heard him. After their very public split, which Jake confirmed via Twitter in November 2018, they might be willing to give it another shot.

“Sadly, Erika and I broke up a while ago and since then, we have been doing our best to work it out and find a solution,” the Team 10 founder wrote in his breakup announcement. “After many discussions and some serious soul searching, it became apparent to us weeks ago, that we could no longer be boyfriend & girlfriend. While it was a truly heartbreaking decision, it is the healthiest thing for both of us.”
We don’t know about you, but that announcement seemed kind of final to us. However, when you think about all that’s happened since then, like the failed FaceTime call on New Year’s Eve and the fact that they attended the Super Bowl together, maybe these two can rekindle their romance after all.
