On November 24, Podcasters Logan Paul and Mike Majlak validated the tape during an episode of Impaulsive, in which Majlak said 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.
Bilyalova has since come forward as the woman shown in the tape, accusing Alvarrez of publishing the video without her consent.
In a now-deleted YouTube video, Bilyalova said Alvarrez asked if he could film the two of them having sex , according to the Daily Dot. However, she added that he threatened to leak the tape when she wanted to break up with him, the outlet continued.
Bilyalova said she believes Alvarrez leaked the tape as part of financial stunt.
According to the Daily Dot, “Bilyalova showed her alleged WhatsApp conversations with Alvarrez. In one message, he threatened to post their sex tape if she didn’t call him.”
“She also showed videos of Alvarrez sent from the number on WhatsApp to prove it was him, and she claimed he only changed his number after their sex tape leaked,” the outlet reported.
Tana Mongeau, a social media influencer who says she is friends with Bilyalova, confirmed in a December 22 episode of Zane and Heath: UNFILTERED that the Russian model was the woman in the tape. Mongeau briefly dated Alvarrez in 2018.
