Trisha Paytas and Jeff Wittek's feud explained
AMERICAN YouTubers Trisha Paytas and Jeff Wittek have clashed since her messy breakup with fellow Vlog Squad member Jason Nash in 2019.
The falling out has blown up even further after serious allegations against several of the group's members. Here is everything you need to know about their feud.
What is the feud between Trisha Paytas and Jeff Wittek?
The drama between Trisha Paytas and Jeff Wittek began after Trisha mentioned in a YouTube video how one of her ex-boyfriend Jason Nash's friends ignored her in a Starbucks.
Jeff later confirmed it was him and she was furious at his description of the encounter.
He said in a podcast: "I don't have any respect for them. If somebody f**ks over one of my friends, I don't even make eye contact with them.
"I'm not going to see you out and be like, 'Oh hey, how are you doing?' just to avoid that little awkward moment."
Trisha hit back and said Jeff "misconstrued the whole Starbucks thing" – but this was just the beginning.
She went on to claim the Vlog Squad, whose channel has almost 19million subscribers, "ruined her life", adding: "Your f*****g friends are the reason I was in a f*****g mental hospital."
Then this month, an explosive article published by Business Insider reported that a woman featured on the Vlog Squad channel was raped by former member Durte Dom in 2018.
Jeff was dragged into the controversy after it was alleged he bought alcohol for underage girls the same night of the alleged sexual assault.
He denies the allegations, but photos show he was there while the victim was carried out of the apartment.
And her friend told Insider she recalls Jeff going out to buy alcohol that same night.
What has Jeff Wittek said about the allegations?
In a video titled My Truth, Jeff claims the only person who accused him of buying alcohol for minors was Trisha.
He added: "It just makes me angry because it is so not true.
"Trisha and I haven’t been so friendly with each other in the past because of the breakup with Jason [Nash]."
Jeff has said he has donated money to a charity that helps victims of sexual assault, adding that what Dom did was "horrible and disgusting".
He went on to say he had "absolutely nothing to do" with the events that night.
What's the latest on the feud?
After Jeff's video, Trisha invited him to join her and YouTuber Ethan Klein on their Frenemies podcast.
They questioned whether Jeff had read the article about him – and he admitted he had not.
She also revealed a photo with a timestamp which proved Jeff was present at the time and played a recording which contradicted his story.
Jeff apologized directly to Trisha for his comments about her time in a mental health facility.
And Trisha, who has 1.43million YouTube subscribers, tweeted that she felt sympathy for Jeff at the moment as he is "going through some stuff".
She added that "he is not slimy like the rest of the group, just trying to cover his bros".
The Sun has contacted Jeff Wittek for comment.
