On January 20, Trisha Paytas publicly slams Shane Dawson and his fiancé, Ryland Adam, labelling the pair as "scum".
For those who don't know, Trisha recently uploaded a tearful video titled "why I’m scared of jeffree and hairbyjay". In the video, she tearfully reacts to Jeffree's friend and hairstylist, Hair By Jay's livestream where he aggressively attacks Trisha's weight and appearance.
Fast forward, and on January 17, long time friend Shane Dawson and fiancé Ryland Adams vanished from Trisha's "follower list" on Twitter.
After a lot of speculation from fans that the pair had unfollowed Trisha, Trisha finally clarified:
I "Shane and Ryland didn’t unfollow me. Just to set the record straight - I blocked them. There’s no malice behind it, I did it for my own peace. It’s not drama. It’a very personal and I want to move on. So speculation can stop as to why they unfollowed, they didn’t."
Trisha then uploaded a YouTube video titled, "I just want to move on" to explain her thoughts on the Jeffree and Hair By Jay drama. In the description, it reads:
I "I truly don't want any back and forth. cause what else is there that needs to be said? jeffree is right - he did apologize, hairbyjay apologized - and I just want to move past it."
I "it triggered me then and it triggers me now. I want to make it very clear I no longer want any association with Jeffree or Shane. they both made their characters clear to me."
However, the drama returned as a few days later when Ryland addressed the drama for the first time in his podcast, "The Sip with Ryland Adams and Lizzie Gordon".
To summarize, Ryland said that Trisha's friendship "meant a lot" to him and that he was "confused" and "taken aback" by the drama. He states that he supports Trisha over Hair By Jay, especially as he has only met Jay once.
I "I love Trisha so much. I consider her one of my closest friends. We see her more than I see really anyone”
Ryland, however, reiterates that he wished Trisha had talked to him about her feelings regarding Hair By Jay and Jeffree. He adds that he was "confused" that she hadn't.
I “At the end of the day, I truly wish she would have come to me as a friend if she was hurting like the way that she is and talked it out with me. And I wish that it wouldn’t play out on the internet like this. I just am really honestly confused because I see her all of the time.”
Ryland then adds that he "understands" that it might've been hard for Trisha to express her feelings about Jeffree as she knows how close the pair was to him.
However, Ryland then states that he cannot "read someone's mind", and that Trisha should've told him where she wants him "to stand".
He then adds that he feels "awful" for contributing to Trisha's hurt feelings.
I "I feel awful that I contributed to her feeling this way because she’s obviously scared and hurting and doesn’t want to be in the position she’s in.”
After the podcast aired, several people were unhappy with Ryland's response. They believed it confirmed Ryland had known about Jeffree and his friends' opinion and behaviour towards Trisha and yet chose to remain silent. They then compared this to Trisha who has often openly defended Shane and Ryland throughout their scandals.
They also pointed out that Ryland had only stated that he supported Trisha over Hair By Jay, and not over "Jeffree and Hair By Jay".
(Ryland later disabled the comments and likes on the video.)
On the same day, Trisha uploaded a series of TikTok videos reacting to Ryland's podcast and slammed Ryland for his "lies". Responding to Ryland's claim that Trisha hadn't gone to him first, Trisha revealed to fans that she did, immediately afterwards.
I “I did, right after it happened. Continuously throughout, phone calls with Shane and you. On my couch.”
Trisha also disputed Ryland's claim that he was "confused" and wasn't a "mind-reader" because she often told him and Shane about how she was treated by Jeffree and his friends.
She also said that Ryland was dismissive when she told him about the drama. Instead, Ryland had told Trisha to "forget about it", before later stating that he didn't believe her.
She added that it was the same with Shane and that he hadn't wanted to believe all the things she said about Jeffree.
I “They are so manipulating, gaslighting. They’re so cruel it’s insane.”
She then says that there was "no mending this friendship".
In a later tweet, she addresses Shane directly, saying that she had been hearing rumors for years that Shane had spoken negatively about her behind her back, but she had never believed it.
She also attaches a clip in the tweet, where a person claims that Shane spoke about Trisha and other people behind their backs, and even labelling Trisha as a "pathological liar".
I “I met Shane Dawson and Shane Dawson talks about all these people behind their backs. He even said things about Trisha Paytas."
I "He goes, 'well she’s a pathological liar' and they all sort of laugh. And I’m like, 'Okay, so this is how you talk about somebody that defends you at any expense.'"
Trisha also questions why the duo would still stay friends with Jeffree as Ryland had allegedly told Trisha before that Jeffree isn't "so great" to Ryland and "kind of ignores" Morgan, Ryland's sister. She also claims that Shane once said to her:
I "Maybe Jeffree's this villain. I'm scared. How do we distance ourselves from him?"
Not only that, but she also reveals a DM that displays Jeffree's uncertain friendship with Shane. In the DM, it is alleged that during the scandal with Tati, Shane had kept calling Jeffree. Jeffree, who had been playing on his pinball machine, had allegedly reacted by rolling his eyes and stating, "it's Shane again".
The following day, on January 21, Trisha retweeted Nick Adam’s tweet:
I "It always feels good to take out the trash! ✈️"
She then retweeted a tweet by drama channel 'Spill Sesh' who stated that Ryland's expression in a clip from his podcast showcases why he "never stood up for Trisha".
Trisha then adds:
I "What a gross thing to make fun of anyway. Ppl rent. U have money and what ? U live an empty shallow existence"
