In a statement via Jake's Twitter, he wrote that "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."
"After many discussions and some serious soul searching, it became apparent to us weeks ago, that we could no longer be boyfriend & girlfriend. While is was a truly heartbreaking decision, it is the healthiest decision, it is the healthiest thing for both of us."
The news officially broke on YouTube gossip channel Keemstar, who asked for a statement from Erika. She said, "I’ve been through so much the past month with this… I don’t care what the internet thinks about me, I just want to move on and get through this shit privately."
Jake only has positive things to say about Erika, in his statement raving about how amazing she is.
"Erika is such a beautiful soul and she truly changed by life. She is a powerful, smart and independent woman, who has such a bright future ahead of her and has helped me become a better person on multiple levels. The times we had together are irreplaceable and I will be forever grateful that she was part of my life."
All we have to say is THANKS Shane Dawson for actually making us invest feelings into their relationship!
During his recent docuseries about Jake, he delved into their relationship, proving not only that it was 100% real, but that Erika was really, really good for Jake and his mental health.
Hopefully, the two can move on without drama.
