The pair dated for two years when Morissette was 18 and Coulier was 33. They broke up in 1994, and a year later Morissette shovelled her emotions into her now-iconic song.
In 2013, Coulier himself confirmed that the song was about him, after years of speculation.
Coulier recalled to HuffPost that when the song came out he “called her and said, ‘Look, what do you want me to say to the media when these folks call me? And she said, ‘You can say whatever you want.'”
According to him, one line is a giveaway: “I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner / It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced.”
He told HuffPost: “We had already broken up… She called and I said, ‘Hey, you know, I’m right in the middle of dinner. Can I just call you right back?’
“When I heard the line, it was like, ‘uh-oh.'”
