People are saying that Nessa cheated on Josh with his own best friend, Jaden Hossler.

And of course, the rumors are spreading since Jaden split from his ex-girlfriend, Mads Lewis. But what makes things worse is that Mads apparently doesn’t like Nessa, which makes people think there may be truth to the rumors of Nessa and Jaden having messed around.

Josh made it a point to speak with Barstool Sports' BFFs podcast about the demise of his relationship with Nessa and the rumors of her cheating with Jaden. And while he made it clear that he will stand by his best friend, he does believe that the rumors will be put to rest very soon. He also noted that there is some tension between Mads and Nessa.

“So, I think that Jaden and Mads obviously broke up, that’s evident,” Josh explained. “And, I guess, she just doesn’t like Ness. They’re not fans of each other.”

Fans believe Nessa cheated with Jaden because of a cryptic video Mads uploaded on TikTok.

As we all know, Mads and Nessa are not fans of each other. And while Mads is dealing with the breakup from Jaden, people have been paying close attention to her behavior.

Mads quickly deleted images of her and Jaden from her Instagram. But what really sent TikTok fans into a frenzy is a now-deleted clip that Mads posted. 

The video, which is set to Taylor Swift’s “Better Than Revenge,” showed moments from Mads and Jaden’s relationship and switched to pictures of the “Angels & Demons” singer and Nessa as the background music played the line, “She took him faster than you can say sabotage.”

Of course, fans understood that to mean that Nessa had taken Jaden from Mads. 

Josh also touched on the topic when he appeared on the BFFs podcast. 

“First, I want to say, I’m always going to be that guy that wants to believe my best friend … because exes do crazy-ass s--t,” he said. “But also, a guy gets jealous. I f-----g love Jaden, I know he wouldn’t do anything.”

Josh also explained that Jaden immediately reached out to him after Mads posted the video. He concluded by saying, “At the end of the day, the truth is going to come out.” 

Since all the drama has gone viral, neither Jaden or Nessa have come out to dispel the rumors. Maybe they are working on a video together to put things to bed, but all we can do is sit back and see how things unfold.
