Addison Rae and Bryce Hall had their relationship come to a seemingly amicable end just days ago, and now the TikTok celebrities have broken their silence in the aftermath.

Once one of the powerhouse couples of the TikTok scene, Rae and Hall are among two of the most popular personalities on the social media platform. With over 70 million combined followers, the duo teased their audiences for weeks before finally making things official just a month ago.

While they were out of the spotlight together for a few weeks, things officially came to an end on September 5. They confirmed that they’re both still friends at the end of the day, but “no one knows the full story” of how their relationship came to a close.

Despite the short-lived relationship status, both Rae and Hall took to social media today to shed light on their feelings after the breakup. 

“Stop forcing friendships into relationships,” Rae tweeted on September 9. Having learned from her recent experiences, she explained how she just “wants to be happy,” moving forward. “A lot of has happened these past few months,” she admitted. 

Meanwhile, Hall expressed nothing but positivity towards his now-ex partner. “Addison can do whatever she wants as fast as she wants,” he said. “We’re working on ourselves and I wish nothing but the best for her and her future.”

The two appeared on-screen together across multiple platforms during their time together. There’s no telling if any future collaborations will ever be in the cards again, though Hall explained that he’ll at least need some time apart for now. “Breakups suck but I promise you time does heal everything,” he said.

“Not too happy with my choices lately and with the time I’m setting aside, I’m going to learn and at least attempt to fix my flaws.”

Even with the recent breakup, both have been keeping plenty busy. Rae has been creating new content and even went viral alongside David Dobrik. Meanwhile, Hall has been busy dealing with the authorities, potentially even facing jail time.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
