Jay Alvarrez is a male travel blogger and former boyfriend of model Alexis Ren who is making headlines after rumors of a leaked sex tape began to circulate online.
Fans of Alvarrez took to Twitter this week to get the scoop following a handful of users who claimed they stumbled across the social media star’s tape.
Podcasters Logan Paul and Mike Majlak on November 24 validated the rumors during an episode of Impaulsive, in which Majlak expressed he saw the rumored sex tape on Pornhub.
“I went over to Pornhub, and I searched it out, and you know, hidden in the coffers there, locked up with very little viewership on it, almost like it could have skated under the radar if people on a giant podcast hadn’t talked about it,” Majlak said.
He added that the video may have been leaked.
Majlak later followed up in the video’s comment section to announce that Alvarrez’s alleged sex tape had been removed from the site following the episode’s release.
Alvarrez, who boasts over 250,000 Twitter followers, has not addressed the rumors on any of his social media platforms.
