She also said Trisha would "harass anyone to stay relevant" on her Instagram Story.
The Trisha Paytas vs Gabbie Hanna and Gabi DeMartino feud hasn't been put to bed just yet. Gabi D has now posted a lengthy explanation of what happened throughout the argument from her perspective.
In case you're not up to date, Trisha and Gabbie basically went to war, after Trisha uploaded a YouTube video explaining why she can't trust Gabbie on Saturday (9 November). Trisha claims Gabbie spread the rumour that she has herpes (which she denies) and told her ex-boyfriend Jason Nash to "be careful". However, the 'Honestly' singer denies this and insists she was not gossiping, she was just looking out for her friend.

Trisha and Gabbie's mutual friend Gabi D then got involved – stay with us – and tried to cool the situation down, but it ended up much worse. It turns out, Gabi D had lied when Gabbie H asked if Trisha had spoken about her. After admitting this, Gabi D alleges that Trisha threatened her and then Gabbie H accused Trisha of "blackmailing" Gabi. Trisha then said she would be suing Gabbie for defamation and it all became one giant YouTube mess.
It all just got a tad messier too because Gabi has now posted an eight-page essay detailing her side of the argument on her Instagram Story – and it's a lot. Gabi explained how Trisha had visited her just three days before the whole feud started. She also confessed to lying in order to cover for Trisha and protect Gabbie H after Trisha spoke "mad shit" about Gabbie.
"I was protecting Gabbie and Trisha by trying to keep peace by lying and saying nothing was said […] In an attempt to protect my relationship with Trish (I said what I had to say to keep Trisha from harassing me)," she wrote.
Gabi claims Trisha threatened to expose her secrets and "blast" her. Apparently, this led to Gabi having to lie for Trisha again in a public statement in order to calm down the situation. However, Trisha still shared screenshots of private messages between them and said Gabi had talked "shit" about other YouTubers.
"Everyone is telling me they think she came all the way here because her career is based on drama and she only stays relevant by it," Gabi explained. "After I shared the manipulation screenshots I had many other YouTubers who've come forward and text me with their experiences with Trisha and how it's the exact same. EXACT. So nice to your face. Act like your best friend. She will drag and harass anyone to stay relevant and do her dirty job."
She added: "I became a puppet in her antics just like all the other YouTubers who've shared stories with me. I'm assuming her cardboard cut out wedding didn't get the hype she wanted so therefore I was next in line to be conned to keep her channel going. A leopard doesn't change its spots. She has a pattern and everyone sees it."
Gabi also confirmed that the whole thing wasn't for publicity from her end, or Gabbie's, but Trisha will do anything to remain relevant. She said: "We asked her why she married a cardboard cut out and she said, 'bc I was bored.' She constantly has trolling ideas brewing and her 'wedding' wasn't as scandalous as she thought so she targeted me for relevance."
To finish this emotional journey, Gabi said the whole thing has left her feeling "used" and "manipulated" because Trisha knows she had a "heart of gold". Now she just wants to move on from it all.
She concluded: "I feel manipulated and lied to. I'm now a part of her game. This is my truth and how I feel and it didn't feel right not to share. From here on out I'm trying to no longer partake in these beyond childish games. Moving on."
