TikTok star Addison Rae and YouTuber Tana Mongeau are fueling rumors of a possible romance between them, after Mongeau joked about stealing Bryce Hall’s ex-girlfriend from him in a good-humored riff.

It’s no secret that Addison Rae and fellow TikToker Bryce Hall have parted ways, with the two sparking speculation among fans that their pseudo-relationship had finally sunk to the bottom of the ocean with a few cryptic tweets in early August.

They seemed to confirm their split in a smiley photograph shortly thereafter, claiming that they’d “handled things privately” off social media.

It seems that Addison’s newly-single status is raising some eyebrows, though — and is even prompting some good-natured flirting from fellow influencer Tana Mongeau, who is “officially” shooting her shot with the viral video star.

Mongeau posted a pointed video to TikTok duetting one of Rae’s bikini-clad videos, writing, “Addison, I’m officially getting at you. Bryce, I’m done acting straight and supportive. I’m next.”

Mongeau also joked that she was “coming for your b**tch” toward Bryce Hall in a clip taken by paparazzi photographer Kevin Wong, leading fans to seriously consider if the two might become an item in the near future.

A little while later, Addison Rae commented on her relationship status in an August 27 tweet, writing, “Single and ready to jingle. Anyways, Christmas is literally in 4 months, wtf.”

That’s not all; it seems that Rae even slid into Mongeau’s DMs, with the YouTuber posting a screenshot of their conversation to her Instagram story (making sure to tag Bryce Hall, for good measure).

It looks like Addison Rae and Tana Mongeau are sparking up a conversation.

Mongeau likewise posted a humorous meme of the two to her story, which showed she and Rae embracing while a wistful Bryce looked on — hearkening to the “distracted boyfriend meme” of internet fame.

Tana Mongeau couldn’t resist poking fun at Rae’s ex-boyfriend, Bryce Hall.

Whether or not the two are in the “talking” stage remains to be seen, but we’re so here for it — and so are fans, apparently, with many a commenter already coming up with their ship name: “Taddison.” (Yay? Nay? It’s cute, either way!)

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.
