YouTube star RiceGum and Instagram model Abby Rao notably parted ways in November 2019 — but it doesn’t look like the drama around their breakup is over, as evidenced by a statement made in Ricegum’s Twitch stream months later.

During an interview with Hollywood Life after their split, Rao admitted that she and RiceGum shared different life goals, which ultimately caused the couple to “clash.”

Despite admitting that she still loved him and remaining diplomatic on the issue, RiceGum hit out at the model months later during an April 2020 live stream via Twitch where he opened up on their split (a broadcast that also got him banned from the platform).

Instagram model Abby Rao and YouTuber RiceGum parted ways in late 2019, with Rao claiming she received an avalanche of backlash over their split, with many critics accusing her of being a “gold digger.”

In his stream, the YouTuber accused Rao of being too clingy, claiming that he was trying to focus on his own life and career without receiving support from her.

“The main thing is like, she didn’t support me,” he claimed. “I was just trying to do me, and I felt like she was just too on my nuts type of s**t, so… I could do a ten-minute video to explain it, but to dumb it down, she was on my nuts too much. Like, no cap.”

Rao hit back at his accusations in a series of emotional videos via her Instagram stories hours later, arguing that she’d never spoken ill of her ex-boyfriend and hadn’t even been public with other men in wake of their breakup.

“I’ve never once said anything f**ked up he’s done to me, or any of the f**ked up ways he treated me, and beat me down mentally, and constantly made me feel like he made me,” she explained. “…he’s just mad that I don’t want to be with him any more!”

Rao went on to admit that she was hurt by his words, and even alleged that he’d accused her of getting too comfortable with other men in wake of her move to TikTokker Daisy Keech’s ‘Club House.’

“After everything we’ve been through together, that’s what you have to say?” she continued. “I’m so hurt. I’ve never even been seen online with another guy. Meanwhile, he’s on his private Instagram with a stripper on his lap.”

The model has since decided to shelve the issue and wishes her ex-boyfriend well — a decision that comes in wake of an avalanche of “heartless” hate she received after their 2019 breakup.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
