One of the Barstool hosts asked: “Any talk with Sofia?”
Alex revealed: “I never spoke to her again after that.”
When asked: “Really?” she clarified: “Yeah, nothing.”
One of the hosts asked: “Not even a fight? It was just gone?”
While the other questioned: “If she were to reach out, would you take the call?”
Social media star Alex explained: “I don’t think she would ever reach out, I don’t know if there’s anything to say. I think it’s kind of done.
“Someone said this the other day which kind of hit me, I’ve now been doing the show on my own longer than we did it together.
“So that’s kid of like… it feels so far away, and I know you guys probably feel that way with business stuff, when you’re in a new era, all I can think about is ‘this is my baby’ and I’m producing it and I’m trying to make it the biggest. So it feels like so long ago that that happened that I don’t think about it.”
Looking shocked by the influencer‘s answer, she was asked: “Do you think if it didn’t blow up the way it did it would have…”
Before the question could be asked in full, Alex responded: “I think it was gonna end regardless. We had personal conversations, like this sh*t was so bad behind the scenes it was gonna end.”
On May 27, 2020, Alex announced that Sofia departed Call Her Daddy.
Sofia parted ways with Call Her Daddy after she and Alex became involved in a dispute with the podcast‘s former distributor Barstool Sports.
Barstool owner Dave Portnoy said that he had offered the co-hosts a $500,000 annual salary, bonuses, and six months off of their initial three-year contract, but Sofia wasn’t happy with the deal, according to HITC.
The influence of Sofia’s then-boyfriendNelson on her agreements to potential deals also contributed to the fallout between the two co-founders.
“I think that’s important to emphasize and I want to make it very clear that it seemed to me in my, Sofia’s 50-50 was about . Not labor,” Alex told viewers.
“I think this is where Barstool and I are pretty frustrated. That’s all it is. Everyone realized she was never gonna be happy.
“Sofia did not take the deal and when it got held up and there were no more points coming from her side, we had to move forward without her.
“There were more and more points and then eventually, she stopped sending points, and then she never sent her points. She said she wanted it. She never signed it.”
