For now, leading arguments online claim Adept went live on October 3 and began sharing various private DMs without consent from those involved. Though do take this information with a grain of salt until confirmed.

While Adept is a successful content creator in her own right, many will also know her as being the ex-partner of fellow streamer xQc. Despite the two being together for multiple years, their relationship fell apart in 2022. Since then, the two have both slowly begun to reveal the reasons as to why they broke up.

More recently, Adept has come out and been making many claims about xQc on her streams. Just last week, Dexerto reported how Adept accused xQc of paying Twitch mods for sexual activities.

In a series of Instagram posts, Adept wrote, “Any streamers out there that are desperate enough to have sex with their head moderators when they’re lonely…don’t talk about it with them over Discord.” The content creator then added, “Preaching about life “choices” when you choose to pay your mod thousands to f**k you?”
