ImJayStation posted a video on Tuesday—a video, mind you, that’s monetized with advertisements—titled “My Girlfriend Alexia Died… *Rest In Paradise*” in which he claims his significant other was killed in a car accident.
“I never wanted to make a video like this ever, but last night, we lost Alexia to a drunk driver, guys,” the crying YouTuber said. “She was on the way to pick up something for the video we were making on our second channel, Dream Team. She got hit, guys. She’s gone. Sorry for crying. I know you guys are going to make fun of me for crying. She’s gone too soon. “
ImJayStation, whose real name is Jason Ethier, continued to talk about their Dream Team channel, which has 317,000 subscribers and which is filled with prank videos. He said he would post the five remaining videos that they had previously made but had not yet uploaded. It’s what she would have wanted, Ethier said.
“Her dream was just to get 1 million subscribers,” said Ethier, whose ImJayStation channel has 5.4 million subscribers.
In a second video released Wednesday, which was also monetized, Ethier drove to a supposed roadside memorial for Alexia to bring her flowers and to say his final goodbye. At that memorial site, candles, flowers, photos of Alexia, and a teddy bear are scattered in front of a cross. He also promoted their Dream Team channel multiple times.
“Alexia,” Ethier said, “these roses are for you. We’re going to miss you.”
Most of the comments on his videos are positive, expressing their condolences and telling them that it’s OK to cry, but there are many others who don’t believe him, particularly because he’s posted plenty of videos in which he’s tried to summon dead people or other scary beings in the middle of the night.
As one YouTube commenter wrote, “She didn’t die, you can still summon her at 3AM.”
Other recent videos from Ethier and Alexia include a vlog from earlier this month ago in which she and Ethier attempted to summon her dead dog during a 3am challenge. She’s also tried calling a dead boyfriend on FaceTime, and in November, they posted a video titled “WE BOUGHT A LITTLE GIRL OFF THE DARK WEB AND SHE WAS CRAZY!!”
All of that has led many to believe Ethier is simply making up Alexia’s death. As Twitter user @OrdinaryGamers wrote, “Jaystation is lying about his dead girlfriend. I’ve spent the entire night browsing and checking with police dept in Toronto and Ottawa. No police reports, no local news agencies and worst of all no family is confirming. I’m done with YouTube. I’m dumb for feeling sorry … I legitimately felt so bad for hearing about the ‘death’ of this person. I wish I didn’t try and look into it and lie to myself instead. I’m clenching my fucking fist and ripped some blood out realizing that some fuckface actually lied about dying like this. I’m so fucking mad.”
Whether he is lying about his girlfriend’s death should easily be able to be proven. The fact that there is no information about her demise makes us wonder did she ever exist. Still, he has earned 20, 000 new subscribers over the last couple of days so people are definitely still interested in him. Honestly, we are over this.
