After learning about Steff's relationship with Burna, Pearl claims she still continued seeing Burna.
"For the past two years we have never stopped seeing each other," Pearl claimed.
"It's just been like the elephant in the room that we choose not to discuss and we just go about things like it doesn't exist."
"I just was in love, and I have been in love for two years, and I have been seeing him for two years; I've just always been in the background."
"In the past two years, he has never mentioned the person I see him with on social media to my face. That person never gets acknowledged, it's like she doesn't exist in our world," Pearl added.

What did Jo Pearl say about Burna Boy and Stefflon Don's relationship?
Jo Pearl claimed that her relationship with Burna was strong until the Nigerian artist travelled to Nigeria in November.
Burna Boy allegedly called Pearl every day until mid-December, when she claimed she couldn't get in contact with the artist for two weeks.
Pearl claimed she and Burna Boy got into an argument in December, then she found out about Burna's relationship with Stefflon Don shortly after.
Although Pearl doesn't clarify what year she found out, Burna Boy and Stefflon Don went public with their relationship in January 2019.
In the video, Pearl revealed how she felt when she found out about Burna and Steff dating.
"I literally collapsed and cried for days, probably even weeks," she said.
Pearl continued "I feel like the thing that hurt me the most is that from the first day I met him, he always emphasized how much he just loved black women, African women. He made me feel so good to the point; I cut my hair just recently."
She added "I don't even wear makeup to go see him, he loves my short hair, he was telling me how beautiful I am. He just truly helped boost my self-confidence in ways I didn't think was possible and I just loved that about him."
Neither Burna Boy nor Stefflon Don has addressed the allegations. Many people are unsure of what to believe as there has only been claims from Jo Pearl and no substantial evidence.
