“He’s actually a nerd, really. I think I would know, I spent most of my time with him,” she said.

Josie backed up her claims by listing George’s “geeky” hobbies, including comics, martial arts, and Dungeons and Dragons.

“And I could tell he was a nerd too because he lacked any knowledge about talking to girls and sometimes he couldn’t read me and I had to teach him about self confidence,” she added.
