Jake Paul Predicted Olivia Rodrigo’s Success While the Two Were With Disney
On December 12, 2021, YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul took to his Twitter and reacted to a recent news article by the Los Angeles Times.
The news piece in question was about pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo and her meteoric rise to the top.
The article cited Rodrigo and mentioned how Paul was the first to spot her singing talents out of all the people.
"I used to tell her that I would brag about knowing her one day. I guess today is that day," Paul wrote in his Tweet.
However, the comment section reflected mixed responses from his fans.
The Twitterati took to the occasion and voiced their opinion.
One tweeted, "Basically you forgot about her until today." And as per another fan tweet, Paul along with his brother Logan should start a "career prediction" company.
Are Olivia Rodrigo and Jake Paul Friends?
While there isn't anything concrete to suggest the duo as friends, they have known each other for a long time.
A thirteen-year-old Rodrigo met Paul when they were was cast alongside each other on the Disney Channel's comedy show Bizaardvark.
"I haven't seen him since he left the show," Rodrigo told the Los Angeles Times.
According to Rodrigo, the last thing Paul told her was that she would become a star in the future and perform in "sold-out stadiums."
"He called it," the 'Driver's License' hitmaker remarked with a beaming smile on her face.
In Rodrigo's words, Paul was "very nice" to her during their time together on the Disney show.
However, she confessed to losing track of her former co-star's work and said she isn't in line with "all the stuff he does online anymore."
Jake Paul Has Been Supportive of Olivia Rodrigo
Earlier in 2021, Paul was present at an official face-off event before his match with Tyron Woodley on August 28, 2021.
Paul spoke briefly about himself, Disney, and Rodrigo during the coming-together event.
However, it wasn't as straightforward as it looked.
The Disney reference was made by Woodley during his spat with Paul after spotting him with a Mickey Mouse-themed Gucci purse.
Later, after their trash-talk ended, Paul spoke with the reporters present at the pre-match event and addressed the Disney connection.
He credited Disney for creating "the biggest prizefighter in the world."
Side by side, Paul publicly claimed his Bizaardvark co-star Rodrigo as "the biggest musical star in the world."
So, there was something in the air on that set, but I don’t even know what happened. But it created two of the biggest stars in the world.
Additionally, his support and admiration for Rodrigo and her work do not stop there.
In his many Instagram stories, the pro-boxer is often seen going berserk over her songs.
In January 20201, the singer's single 'Driver's License' rocketed to the number one position on US iTunes.
Rodrigo took to her Twitter and shared her excitement regarding the matter.
Out of all the congratulatory comments put forward on her social media post, one comment, in particular, caught everyone's attention.
The boxer took his time out and credited his former co-star writing "Good Jobbbb omg," clear evidence of his supportive behavior toward Rodrigo.
