The Real Reason Behind Jake Norvell Leaving Team Snob
"I was told people were wondering what happened with me and Jake, and I consider myself to be very honest, so here's what happened. For the better part of a year, I had an on again, off again thing going on with a girl named Rayn, who was from Michigan. She had come down to Springfield to visit me, and I had gone to Michigan to visit her. For a while, things were absolutely fantastic, and she ended up moving to Springfield, which is why she started showing up in a few videos. Honestly, things were pretty great. It kinda cooled off a bit, but within the past few months, it seemed like it was getting great again. We were very romantic with eachother, we went out of state, we started brainstorming new projects, and words from her were used like "maybe for once I could settle down" and "we're going to have a great adult date, I'm even going to get my dad to watch my son so we can have amazing alone time."
Then I made the unfortunate mistake of introducing her to Jake. A man who thinks with his dick so much, that's probably what was doing most of the taking in his reviews. He knew the whole story about us, he knew I was planning on asking her to move in with me, he knew every single piece of our history, because I told him about it at the last convention we went to. That was all we talked about on the ride back. But banging about 10 different women, and going after 17 year olds wasn't enough for him, so he moved in like a snake, and made sure that he was always at her place every day, conveniently always needing a ride somewhere, and then borrowing my car to apparently go over there himself. All while telling other people in the group that there was no way I'd fire him because I would lose all of my revenue. (in reality Jake videos only made up 5% of my income). His replacement gets better hits than he does.
This is a guy who stood up with me at my wedding, this is a guy who I considered a brother for well over a decade. This is a dude who I was always there for when he went on a 2 year terror, because a friend started dating his ex several months after the relationship ended. And then he goes and does something worse for literally no reason other than he could. And to his credit, it worked. He's a sociopath and a pathological liar, with a history of anger issues and schizophrenia, so yeah, he can actually be pretty damn charming. I was told about the Rayn and Jake thing by her at a convention when I asked if she wanted to move in with me. She said she couldn't be with me unless she could also be with Jake too, because now she loves us both. So, naturally, I had a bit of a problem with that lol. And the ride home from Indianapolis was very awkward to say the least. Especially when she said "you're being selfish, I want a communal family where I have tons of kids all from different fathers." Suddenly I was questioning my feelings for this girl =)
So, I broke it off, and completely cut ties with Jake. I haven't talked to him since, and I have no plans to talk to him or work with him again. The term "dead to me" may be overused, but it serves a purpose sometimes. Everyone else in the group just ignores him, and I don't hear anything from him, except for the occasional text from Rayn asking how my day is. Honestly, that was a horrible horrible thing to go through, especially when it involves not one, but two people I loved and unfortunately trusted, and had to cut ties with. I'm still dealing with it, and it's been incredibly hard, and I don't wish it on anyone. It's one of those things though that I'm glad it happened at 33 and not 23, because 23 year old Brad would probably still be in a bar and shitfaced. I haven't drank at all since it happened, but I have smoked more cigarettes.
On the plus side, Jake could probably make a living as an author, because his version of it is a fantastic piece of fiction, which he tried spewing out to anyone that would believe him (and no one did, because it's the story of a crazy person). Essentially his version is "whaaat, I didn't know anything." Even if I hadn't told him about me and Rayn, and even if she was downplaying things to him to make him feel better; he still saw us kissing, he saw us holding hands, and he was at a convention where she and I shared the same hotel room and bed together. Moral of the story is, if you love someone dearly, never ever introduce them to Jake Norvell. Or whatever this thing is that used to be Jake Norvell."
Well if you made it through that then you know know that it was all over a girl, one girl in fact, Ryan. I think it goes without saying that Brad really does have trust issues with people, seeing that he keeps losing all of his female partners. Also we still have to hear from Jake about this matter, seeing how all of this information is one sided. And what is up with Ryan and her wanting both of them, that stuff is just whack, I wouldn't touch that with a fifty foot pole.
Also in other news apparently Ryan isn't too happy about Brad's outcomings, mainly because none of them were meant to speak publicly on the matter.
