Each time Billie visited Lain and Greg, she would appear in their YouTube videos and they would appear in hers.
According to Billie, Taylor first contacted her on Twitter asking her if she was interested in girls, how old she was, and eventually saying she wanted to see her. (Source)
According to Greg, although Billie and Taylor intended on dating from the beginning, Billie came to visit Taylor and Greg before Billie and Lain began dating in early December 2015. (Source) This was so Lain and Billie could get to know one another. During the visit, Lain 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 Lain. Lain felt that Billie might have been there for Greg and not really for her, but Billie denied this. Greg says he felt Lain was being unfair and encouraged Lain to give Billie another chance. Lain drove Billie to the airport when the trip was over, and Greg says by the time they made it to the airport they were on good terms again. ($ource)
Greg says "we" got Billie another plane ticket to stay longer than last time. Greg says Lain was originally, until Billie missed the first flight. According to Greg, this confirmed Lain's suspicions that Billie was not interested in her. Lain was now saying she couldn't wait for Billie to leave before she even arrived. Despite this, Lain picked up Billie from the airport and they kissed. Greg says things seemed okay between them.
Greg says one night he, Lain, and Billie had a threesome, but Lain stopped it when they got to third base. The next day Lain told Greg she did not think she would be having sex with Billie within the next few days, even though Greg told her he wanted to go further. Greg says he told her many times in the past that he wanted to "make love to her while she stimulated another woman." He says Lain's decision not to be intimate with Billie for the next few days disappointed him and made him feel like Lain let him down. "Essentially I was reacting like she broke a promise she never made." He says he felt like marrying someone that is bisexual was a "dream come true" because "seeing two women make love to each other is absolutely beautiful to me." Greg also says because of the experience the day before, he became emotionally connected to Billie.
After this conversation, Greg went downstairs to tell Billie what was going on. He says he and Billie were confused and did not know what to do. They played video games and watched a movie. Greg texted Lainey saying he "needed affection" and that he was "really aroused and I feel an intense need for cuddling as well." He asked for permission to cuddle Billie, "followed that with or you can follow me?". Greg says Lainey became upset and wanted to leave.
Greg says while he helped Taylor pack, he told her he wouldn't do anything with Billie that friends wouldn't do. He admits he was being manipulative and "trying to slip something by her" when saying this because he had a female friend in high school that he would cuddle that Lain knew about. He also says he would cuddle with his male friends, although he would never ask them to cuddle. When Lain left, he cuddled Billie. Greg also says his mother was a masseuse and once gave him a full body massage with lotion, but avoided his gentiles. Greg says he used this as justification to give Billie a full body massage. He says he applied lotion and massaged her chest and butt. He says after, they took individual showers, then cuddled while watching movies. He says they feel asleep cuddling in Lainey's bed. Greg says they did not have sex.
Greg told Lain about what he and Billie did the next day and Lainey broke up with him. He says she did not care about the full body massage because Greg and Billie had given her one "48 hours prior", although it did not involve lotion. Greg says he believes what he did with Billie was harmless, but Lain was upset that she specifically told him not to cuddle her and he did anyway. He refers to this as a "betrayal", rather than cheating. He says he also told Lain that he loved Billie according to the definition, "an intense feeling of deep affection". He says although he says he told many of his male friends this as well, he meant there was something more than a friendship.
Greg says he signed an agreement to give Lainey a monthly sum of money that a friend of Lainey's agreed was fair. He also signed away full custody of their child to Lainey. He says he planned to see their child on a regular basis, but it is Lainey's right to take that away from him if she wants. ($ource)
After Taylor left, 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 released parts of he and Billie's text conversations 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.
