Tessa Brooks has taken to YouTube to explain why she has quit Team 10.
The 18-year-old had been part of Jake Paul’s squad for a year, but shocked fans earlier this week when she announced she was no longer part of the team.
Tessa promised fans she would explain why she had quit in a later video – and that time has come.
The vlogger told her 3 million subscribers that things had ‘changed’ in Team 10 and that leaving was best for both parties.
In an emotional video, Tessa said: ‘I loved Team 10 so much, I loved being a part of it. And though they might not have felt the same way about me, or anything, it doesn’t change the fact that I was really, really happy at one point.
‘It’s a really bittersweet thing for me, because I am thinking of what it once was for me. It’s a really sucky thing, it is what it is. You have to know when to let go.’
She continued: ‘We’ve grown apart and we’re heading in different directions, and that’s totally OK. It’s not something that is right for me anymore. We just disagree on a lot of things. Things just aren’t how they used to be.’
Tessa admitted that things got more difficult when she decided not to move into the Team 10 house with Jake and the gang.
She now lives with fellow former Team 10 vlogger Tristan Tales.
Later in the video, Tessa added that there were some things she would not be talking about, hinting there was more going on behind the scenes of her exit.
She said: ‘There are things that are personal and that I don’t need to be put out there’ – adding that she didn’t want to ‘air anybody’s dirty laundry’.
However, she thanked Jake for ‘everything’, and wished Team 10 the best in 2018.
It’s been a pretty bad week for Jake Paul.
A video surfaced showing the 20-year-old using the n-word multiple times while rapping, while his use of a sexually explicit thumbnail to clickbait a vlog has angered many.
Meanwhile, controversy surrounds his older brother Logan, whose ‘We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest’ video sparked outrage.
