    This is hard to explain, so I'm going to do it in a slightly odd way... Imagine a situation (I AM NOT SAYING THE JEFF KALIE ONE) A relationship breaks down, for whatever reason, and whoever is at fault isn't known. Person 1 publicly has a go at person 2, then later apologises Person 2 is either sad at the end of the relationship, or mad at the previous incident and wants revenge, or some other unknown reason, so goes public to plead their case. Maybe this doesn't go to plan, so they create evidence believable to social media... Rename a number in their phone as person 1 and engineer a load of missed calls using said number. Send a load of messages to own phone. Screen shot and share. Neither of these would be admissable in a court of law without proof of where they came from. Let me reiterate.... I am absolutely NOT saying kalie did this. I am saying we should be careful not to get caught up in speculating and should let the professionals deal with it. I have also said that if Jeff is in the wrong, he should be held to account. That also, if Kalie is in the wrong, she should be held to account. My point all along, has been that we don't know and should not be unkind to either one of them. I said a while back that I hope they both find peace and move on. I hope this explains my point. Abuse is never OK.

    lol. Jeff should grow the fuck up and maybe find a girlfriend his own age where he doesn't feel compelled to act like a 12 year old. What he's doing is beyond immature and even cruel... telling people to keep hating on her, subtweeting her? I don't care what he thinks she did. There are two sides to every story.

    Did anyone care this much about the age gap when the relationship seemed “happy?” I know on the forum in the past it’s been a touchy subject to question age gaps, but the whole thing has seemed odd to me from the start, especially all the sexual, “my girlfriend is so hot” posts on Twitter that seemed like the shit you’d do in high school coming from a 40-year-old man. Obviously we’ll never know, but if you have to keep posting online about how great your relationship is, I just wonder how great it actually is? It’s always seemed cringey and forced to me.

    This is what I think the big point of disagreement is. Everyone has different thresholds for evidence they’ll accept. Some (most here) are ok with the evidence probably being true because there’s no major reason for it not to be. Others want more concrete evidence that cannot feasibly be falsified ( @neverdone2000 being the prime example here). The problem with posting some evidence on social media is there will always be people who want more, and there’ll always be people who don’t, and these people won’t agree. I like to see myself in a third camp: I have no reason to disbelieve the allegations that Kalie’s made, but there’s also the possibility that they are not quite what they seem (it’s so easy to doctor or cherrypick evidence from screenshots that it might not tell the whole story, even if not a lie). We should not disbelieve Kalie, who needs support at this time, not animosity. But we should also not instantly demonise Jeff for things we haven’t seen that have happened in private. In court, the defence has the chance to look at all the evidence beforehand in order to be able to explain their side. That’s because even the worst looking things can have fair explanations, and we shouldn’t pass judgement on evidence from one side that hasn’t even had the opportunity to be addressed by the other side. I absolutely agree with this. Which is why it’s problematic releasing some evidence into the public domain. For the many who’ll want more, the level they want will never be released. Not saying she’s wrong to have done it, there are many good reasons for it. But it does create problems like this one. I don’t see why the age gap matters so much. The alleged behaviour is wrong whether she’s 22 or 82. Linking vulnerability to age in a relationship between two consenting adults in the absence of other factors can create so many problems for those who are older and in similar situations, who may feel disempowered because ‘they’re older and should know better’. (Not @ you, Hermione just needed an example to quote). This is a difficult situation for all involved, whose actual real lives are being affected by this situation. This thread is public, and we should all remember that these are real people with real feelings when posting. TL;DR: We don’t know everything that has happened in private, so we should be respectful towards and supportive of Kalie, but also careful not to pass judgement too soon on Jeff.

    Are you familiar with false equivalency? He's a public figure who chose to air this publicly and who is clearly harassing her as shown by both of their posts. He is 100% responsible for this being out in the open. He's also deleted most of his apologies. She isn't a public figure and is defending herself from what he chose to post publicly and from harassment. Harassing someone vs being harassed and making it known. People saying a 47 year old guy who is behaving in a shitty way towards a woman shouldn't be in a band that is all about empowering and respecting woman vs people sending death threats to a 24 year old with a young child. Yeah totally equal. I do agree it would be foolish to think we can take the info they've posted and know everything about their relationship and motivations from it. But it seems fair to react to publicly posted info by saying this is shitty behaviour, that's mostly what's happened here as far as I can see.

    I think this is reaching a bit. I highly doubt anyone at a Green Day show or in the general public is at risk because Jeff is acting unstable because his girlfriend (supposedly) cheated on him. It’s a very personal issue and I wish it could have just been left as that. I don’t get why grown adults have to air their issues on social media like this. Do either of them actually think this will make things better?

    Frankly none of this should be for the public... we don’t know the story we have Jeff’s side Kalie’s side and then there’s the truth Jeff shouldn’t have posted any of this on his social media page and neither should she if she doesn’t want contact change the number and then file a report... saying don’t feel safe at GD shows and trying to imply that Jeff is going to be a murderer cause of calling someone repeatedly well as someone who has multiple friends actually been MURDERED is highly off putting to me... Bottom line Jeff’s an douche who should move on Kalie should file a report and both need to lay off social media about all of this

    I don't want to judge either Jeff or Kaylie, like @Second favourite son said, I just want to share my experience, my thoughts and my impressions. I was in the same situation as Kaylie with my ex, who didn't harass me a week... but a year and a half, with many texts every day the first weeks, until it got up to a text every few days; all undesired, and which I never replied to, not one. Because I knew he was too heartbroken, I knew there was nothing to do about it. I had just broken up with him, didn't cheat on him. I filled a police report after the first few weeks because "I couldn't take it anymore", like Kaylie. I was angry against him. I felt compassion though, I knew he was hurt and I didn't mean to (and I didn't expect that extreme reaction) but I didn't feel like he had compassion towards me on the other hand, he kept harassing me. Luckily none of us were very social media, it was our private relationship from beginning to end, no reason to share it anywhere on internet. I ended up blocking his number and leave him to deal with his feelings, like I dealt with mine. Now, about police reports, it's true (at least in France it is) that you won't get any court for that kind of thing. And with the hindsight, that's a good thing. Jeff is not a criminal. He was probably very hurt, even more after he had shared all their romance on social media, which was not smart. But now that he stopped, it's Kaylie who shares this stuff on social media. Even private stuff like texts. Maybe it’s an overreaction after the GD fans threatened her (and these are the only really bad people in this, to stupidly threaten her because they’re GD fans and don’t understand that you are simply very hurt after being left behind). I remember that even I was feeling threatened physically, with only my ex's texts, so... I understand that, and I think she is doing this to at least feel protected. But it's also using the same way Jeff used to accuse her in the first place... and giving too much importance to all this. It doesn’t help either of them to move on. Disabling followers on her Instagram, it’s all social media war, it’s dumb. Everybody's saying Jeff is immature, maybe he is, he is most of all heart broken because he's the one who's been left, and he deserves compassion as well for that alone. Both deserve compassion. She is not acting very adult herself to continue giving a life to this on her social media. If she decides (like I did with my ex) not to respond to him, but if she does it only to post his monologue to her on social media to prove him wrong, she may want to reverse the power relation, (because supposedly he’ll get all the support for being famous… which I think is wrong given what I could read only here, she probably gets the most support overall now, among GD and non-GD fans) while the best thing to do would be to stop the social media spreading and not to give us to know anything to prove anyone right or wrong. Once again he was the one who brought it up but also the one who was initially hurt, and being a celebrity doesn't seem to play in his favor even among us GD fans, because she gets sympathy as a young non-famous woman, which is good, but not when it's made a point against him just because he is famous, and was supposedly using fame to get to her... he apologized, and the fact he deleted his apologies doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't sincere, it may also be a way of saying that he recognizes this whole affair should never had been brought up publicly, and wants to end it privately. But she's only blowing on the embers. I don't know her and perhaps all she gives us to show is real, but even then it only seems to me like a desperate, sad man (age isn’t meaningful in relationship feelings, I don’t think so) who's been left alone and feels terrible about it. Once again, maybe she does it because she still feels threatened not by Jeff himself, but by the people who directly threatened her, but if he ever sees what she's been posting, I don't think it will help him stop to text her. It took my ex one year and a half to stop while nothing happened from my part. Yeah, he contacted my friends too and I was very angry, even more since my friends seemed to pity him. But I think overall, I had the good role, I wasn’t suffering like he was. Okay, guys can be very childish when being left behind... but no, he's not a criminal, and for me, there's no way he deserves to be kicked out of Green Day for that. It's not up to us to decide that anyways.

    Honestly, we shouldn't even be talking about it. Kaylie's Instagram is private therefore her posts should never have been posted here. Jeff was a dick to try and make it public in the first place, but other than that we really shouldn't be commenting on it. It's not our place to speculate or judge or make assumptions, especially when we don't know/can't be certain exactly what is happening anyway. It should be between them and the legal authorities, and I hope they get it sorted.

    Again, what you “saw” on the one side was just some Internet postings from people you don’t even know. Nobody knows the totality of what was going on except those involved. Life isn’t black-and-white, “one person is right, one person is wrong.” If only it was that simple. I’m not saying Jeff’s actions make sense or are defensible by any means, but if he hadn’t apparently rallied fans online to harass her, and only posted about being cheated on, for example, everyone might be rushing to his defense and calling him the victim when bullying could still be happening behind the scenes. I highly doubt a nasty breakup that got aired online is going to jeopardize someone’s position as a Green Day touring guitarist most people have never heard of and it amazes me that anyone would feel personally at risk from it.

    He seems like a bit of a cerebral neurotic guy and the lack of closure could be driving him nuts. It’s possible he doesn’t realize the effect he’s having by trying like a lunatic to get through to her. He should realize it, but his head’s too far up his own ass and he’s only feeling his own pain right now. If he was obsessive during the relationship (she described it as toxic) I can see her wanting to walk away and cut ties like this without a word. And for Jeff I could see that being the worst thing a person could do.

    Or Kalie has removed her. I've definitely been removed, and so have many others that I follow. She's also private account again now, so hopefully she can ditch all the GD fans and go back to a private life. We don't know what she did in the beginning, we don't know what he did in the beginning. We know he was wrong on twitter. We know she loves the attention she gets from her stories (of mundane everyday stuff, and there's no issue here). Jeff calling her every day, up to 7 times, isn't pleasant I agree, but it's typical 'I want you back' behaviour, and we don't know it was going to be nasty. We don't have proof of what she said about what he is doing. IF Jeff is doing these things, then, yes his position should be considered. However, he may be the victim of this latest set of stuff (not the twitter stuff, we know that!)

    I have so much love in my heart for this amazing human being. Just had one of those moments where it really hits me just how much he means to me, and how he has such a huge positive impact on my life/me as a person/the way I'm feeling at any given time, and how much I appreciate having him around. We are honestly so lucky to have him, and I feel truly blessed to have him in my life (even though I don't know him personally). He is just downright incredible, more than words can describe, and he means more than the world to me. I love him so freakin' much. He's an absolute angel and he deserves all the best. P.S. Sorry for the emotional post, the feels all just hit me out of nowhere and I felt like I had to post about it.
