On Dec. 8, the influencer decided to treat her fans to a scandalous story about how she caught her best friend hooking up with her man inside her own house.
In a 35-minute YouTube video titled “I CAUGHT MY BESTFRIEND HOOKING UP WITH MY MAN: a storytime/rant/scandal,” Mongeau detailed how her best friend — whom she codenamed “Mindy” — and her man at the time — whom she codenamed “Jeff” — ended up getting together behind her back.
Obviously, there are a lot of details to unpack, but here’s the gist of it: Right before all the betrayals happened, Mongeau went through a bad breakup with a musician who wrote a particularly brutal song about her. Then, over the course of a “draining” two weeks that began right around Halloween, she started hooking up with Jeff, whom Mindy seemed to be infatuated with.
“I was like, ‘She likes Jeff a little too much,'” Mongeau said about Mindy. “She’ll stay around and talk to him a little too much, she’ll laugh at his jokes a little too much. B**** I’m aware, I was always aware. I just didn’t think you’d do anything, Mindy.”
One night when Mongeau was feeling upset about her ex and the song he wrote about her, Mindy suggested that she invite Jeff over. Mongeau obliged — but when he came over, she noticed that he and Mindy were flirting very openly.
Then, that very night, Mongeau realized that Mindy and Jeff actually hooked up at her house. Not very subtle.
Who are the people in Mongeau’s story time?
Though Mongeau used codenames in her story time, fans were quick to figure out whom she was referring to in her tale.
For starters, the ex that she kept referring to appears to be the rapper Derek Smith, aka Mod Sun. The song he allegedly wrote about Mongeau is called “Karma.”
“When the entire internet is attacking you for having s** with someone you absolutely DID NOT and the person accusing you ‘won’t release’ the imaginary security footage,” Schofield wrote in a TikTok posted in response to Mongeau’s video (In her YouTube video, Mongeau claimed that she has security footage of the infidelity).
At this point, the situation is really just a he said, she said, though most people are siding with Mongeau.
“The AUDACITY,” one person commented on YouTube.
“How you didn’t get up and just start beating her a** I don’t know,” another added.
“‘MINDY’ is SO DISGUSTING,” a third wrote.
