Rumors of a split between Desus and Mero, who first collaborated on the Desus vs. Mero podcast in 2013, started circulating in recent days. A lot of people were talking about it over the weekend after the Bodega Boys Daily Twitter account compiled a slew of recent comments from both men.

According to Rebecah Jacobs, 27, who runs the Bodega Boys Daily Instagram account, “I thought maybe a couple of hundred die-hard fans would see it and be upset… and that’s about it.” Since their names were trending on Twitter, I figured they’d have to comment on it at some point, but I figured it would be in response to my tweet and nothing too formal. When Jacobs was in college in New York City, he began listening to Desus & Mero’s Bodega Boys podcast.

She found she enjoyed interacting with other fans. “Zerocool” produces pop culture and entertainment trading cards; she is the company’s copywriter currently.

As soon as Jesus announced this summer that he would be guest-hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live! solo, Jacobs realized that something was amiss with Desus & Mero. The fact that they’ve been working more and more independently in recent months “made me think something might be up,” she explained. During their appearance at the MLB All-Star Game, I noticed that they arrived separately and shot a large amount of content on their own, so I figured there was some tension.

The Show Announced Their Split on Monday.

As soon as she heard the news from Showtime, she was stunned “On their podcast a few years ago, they joked about Selena being killed by a former fan and compared me to Yolanda Saldivar.

It’s now up to fans to speculate as to why the band broke up in the first place. “I can only assume that their friendship going sour made it hard to fake on screen or on the podcast,” says Jacobs, who has met both men several times over the years and believes they had a genuine connection. After the show announced their split on Monday, Desus reached out to her just a few hours later.
