(Source) Greg also made a sketch video titled "Onision's Wife Leaves Him (For A Woman)" where Billie and Lainey intimately touched and talked about their lust for each other. The video ended with Lainey and Billie making-out in-front of Greg acing horrified. ($ource) Greg also recorded some non-sketch videos with just Billie ($ource), something he would continue to do throughout their relationship.
Greg says during the visit, Lainey became mad and even cried because Billie and Greg were spending a lot of the time together, rather than Billie concentrating on getting to know her. Lainey felt that Billie might have been there for Greg and not really for her, but Billie denied this. Greg says he felt Lainey was being unfair and encouraged her to give Billie another chance.

Greg says they got Billie another plane ticket to stay longer than last time. Greg says Lainey was originally looking forward to it, until Billie missed the first flight. According to Greg, this confirmed her suspicions that Billie was not interested in her. Lainey told Greg she couldn't wait for Billie to leave before she even arrived. Despite this, Lainey picked up Billie from the airport and they kissed. Greg says things seemed okay between them.
Greg said one night he, Lainey, and Billie had a threesome, but Lainey stopped it after getting to third base. The next day, Greg asked Lainey if he could cuddle Billie over texts and she told him no. After Lainey left the house, Greg cuddled Billie and gave her a body massage that included her cheat and butt. Greg told Lainey about this the next day and she broke up with him. Sometime during their separation, Greg signed an agreement to give Lainey a monthly sum of money and exclusive custody of their son. He also arranged for someone to help her five days a week with household chores. ($ource)
After Lainey left the house, Greg asked out Billie. (Source) He says just a few hour after he and Lainey were separated, he asked Billie to kiss him and she told him "it was not the right time". He says this was because he was emotionally vulnerable. ($ource) Greg also said he told Billie, "Well it looks like you’re a homewrecker now", but she gave no response. (Source)
Greg released parts of his text conversations with Billie in a speaks video. In the first set of texts, Greg asks Billie if she is 100% sure if she wants to come back and she said yes. This was when Greg planned to fly Billie back up to his home 2 weeks after he and Taylor broke up. (Source) The next set of texts shows Greg warning Billie about the internet backlash she will receive because of what happened. He also tells her he did not mention her name in his "I Betrayed My Wife" video. She tells him she can handle it. The last set of texts start out as a casual conversation where Billie tells Greg to contact her whenever he's feeling down, but ends with Greg cutting off contact with her by telling her he does not deserve love because of what he did and he needs to be alone.

Billie's friend at the time, Social Repose, claims that Billie told him after Greg and Billie broke up, Greg followed her to the airport he told her he would leave everything behind to start a new life with her. ($ource) Greg denied this happened. (Source)
