Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend Julia Rose will be ringside for his fight with Ben Askren tonight – after being in rival Joe Fournier’s corner.
Paul dated Rose for several months but the couple broke up last year.
Fournier, who has called out Paul in the past, will take on Colombian musician Reykon with the controversial model by his side.
“I don’t think it’s going to be awkward. I think at this point we should be able to coexist,” Rose told Us Weekly.
“Jake’s a businessman so I think, if anything, he’ll be able to respect this. For me, I can’t speak for Joe’s motives and I can’t speak for the press’ motives, but what I can say for myself is that this is a huge business opportunity for me.
“I think despite our history between Jake and I, I hope as a business entrepreneur himself, he can look at this and respect this as a business play on my end.”
Rose has been training alongside Fournier for his fight – which came about after a row with his opponent in a nightclub.
Fournier has won each of his eight professional fights and is expected to make short work of Reykon who is making his debut.
Rose gained notoriety by flashing her breasts during game five of the World Series in 2019.
And earlier this year she was among six people arrested for altering the famous Hollywood sign in Los Angeles to “Hollyboob”.

Of her relationship with Paul, she has said: “It was the only kind of like our second go at it, but you know, it’s tough. Having a very public relationship where a lot of people don’t see exactly what happened, it’s tough.
“But you know, I don’t think either of us are bad people. We are just trying to live our lives and do the best we can.”
Fournier plans to call out Paul again assuming both men win their respective fights.
The nightclub owner offered to stake £2million on the fight last year following talks between the rivals.
