Cut It Out: A Timeline of Uncle Joey's 'You Oughta Know' Drama

Getty ImagesDave Coulier, aka Full House's Uncle Joey Gladstone, is setting the record straight about ex-girlfriend Alanis Morissette's hit song "You Oughta Know" — again.

He's been talking about being the inspiration for the song for the last decade, but recently told Buzzfeed the rumor is "a silly urban legend that I just have to laugh at."

However in the past Coulier didn't dismiss it quite as easily. Let's take a look back at the drama that you oughta know: 

Dating: 1992-1994

Coulier and Morissette were dating during the height of his Full House career and while she was writing her second album. But apparently all was not well in paradise, and they parted ways in 1994.

Jagged Little Pill: 1995

Morissette released her second album Jagged Little Pill in 1995, which included the popular, risqué, Grammy award-winning song "You Oughta Know." Fingers started pointing at Coulier as the inspiration, since he was her last known boyfriend before the album's release. 

It's About Me: 1997

In an interview with The Boston Herald in 1997, Coulier "admitted the lines are very close to home. Especially the one about 'an older version of me' and bugging him [Coulier] 'in the middle of dinner.'" 

It's Still About Me: 2008

More than ten years after the almost-confession, Coulier once again shared his belief that he was the inspiration behind the song. He was interviewed by the Calgary Sun in 2008 and admitted: "I said, 'Wow, this girl is angry' (when he first heard the song while driving). And then I said, 'Oh man, I think it's Alanis,'" Coulier revealed. "I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, 'I think I have really hurt this person.'"

This time in an interview with Huffpost Live Coulier played more coy than he had in the past. He addressed the rumor as "one of those urban legends I keep getting asked about" and said he "likes to think we parted as good friends." 

However he once again referenced to the line "I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner." He said: "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, uhhh-ohhh!"

It's Not About Me: 2014

In Coulier's recent Buzzfeed interview he rejected the rumors of his influence on the 90's hit.

He said: "I dated Alanis in 1992. You know, it’s just funny to be the supposed subject of that song. First of all, the guy in that song is a real a-hole, so I don’t want to be that guy. Secondly, I asked Alanis, 'I’m getting calls by the media and they want to know who this guy is.' And she said, 'Well, you know it could be a bunch of people. But you can say whatever you want.' So one time, I was doing a red carpet somewhere and [the press] just wore me down and everybody wanted to know so I said, 'Yeah, all right, I’m the guy. There I said it.' So then it became a snowball effect of, 'OH! So you are the guy!' It’s just become this silly urban legend that I just have to laugh at."

Although his track record isn't pointing to just one red carpet slip-up, should we give him the benefit of the doubt? Or tell him to "cut it out?"
