Joshua gave his own account of what allegedly took place during this morning's episode of the show, claiming that Jacob asked Joshua to stop filming him after Joshua asked for some of his bathwater as a birthday present for the show's cohost, Jackie O.

Joshua said he refused to delete the footage "because I feel uncomfortable right now, and this is the only evidence. And then Jacob kind of just flips and he kind of pushes me against the wall and his hands are on my throat.”
