There are always three sides to every story – yours, mine, and the truth. But when you’re a celebrity, there is also one more side and that’s the court of public opinion. Your dirty laundry is out there for all of the world to see, even if you’re not the one putting it out there.
Alix Earle is one of those people. Well, one of those people that someone else puts dirty laundry out there about and then the world takes as fact and she’s gotta spend an insane amount of time defending her life.
The thing is though, she shouldn’t have to. But while on the Call Her Daddy podcast, the Tik Tok star and Hot Mess with Alix Earle podcast host, addressed the comments and rumors surrounding her relationship with NFL player Braxton Berrios, who apparently used to date Sophia Culpo. Culpo had said that Berrios cheated on her and called Earle a homewrecker.
Lord, let the claws come out we guess. But like also, if he cheats, what the f**k is anyone fighting over. Yet, if someone was to call us a homewrecker, the claws would come out and we’d feel the need to defend ourselves.
“This past summer, you were getting scrutinized on the internet. People were calling you a mistress, some people were calling you a homewrecker, in regards to the NFL player you were hooking up with,” Alex Cooper asked Alix Earle.
She continued, “Can you confirm: Were you hooking up with him when he was in a relationship?”
“It is so triggering to even hear you say that,” Alix responded, obviously hurt and uncomfortable that anyone would ask this. You could also tell that she was a little hurt by the situation.
She continued, “I spent my childhood thinking this is basically the worst thing you could do to another human. So why the fuck would I do that? No, they were not together.”
“I guess the ex-girlfriend had started posting things alluding to unfaithfulness in the relationship online and I was seen hanging out with this guy so everyone kind of just pointed fingers at me,” Alix said. This was her best guess as to how the rumors started. But she also went on to say that she was, “asking for the receipts. Like, right away I was probably more psycho than she was.”
While we don’t think she was calling anyone psycho intentionally, we have to admit that it was an interesting choice. Relationships can do that to you, though. Alix said that her and Braxton were never exclusive and that she is currently single.
Whatever the situation, we do hope that women build each other up and don’t destroy each other. The relationships aren’t our business, even though we do write about them. We know that. But what do you think? Was “homewrecker” a good word to use in this situation?
