Cosplay model Belle Delphine is in some hot bathwater for allegedly scamming her Patreon supporters.

The former Instagram cosplay model had made a name for herself after a series of stunts including literally selling her used bathwater for $30 a bottle to thirsty fanboys.

Previously, 19-year-old trolled her fans by promising them she’d create a channel on an adult site if a photo got one million likes on Instagram. While she did end up making the page and even uploaded videos, none of them were explicit in nature.

Now, it would appear that the famed scarlet is under siege by her supporters for not providing them with content.

Dexerto received an email from a supporter in Belle’s $50 Patreon tier after questions were brought up as to her whereabouts in our previous story.

The source revealed that Delphine, “hasn’t added her paying patrons on [Snapchat] for all of August and most of July or posted on it.”

“She hasn’t been active at all or fulfilling the promises to her patrons that pay for the $1,000 tier,” he said.

After selling out of “Gamer Girl Bathwater”, Belle sold a whole tub for $10,000.

“She’s completely scamming her paying fan base without releasing any content. Her last post said she would be doing extra and making the month ‘extra special’.”

As Dexerto previously reported, in Delphine’s last Patreon update was on August 1 where she said she wanted to “make this month an extra good month for all of you to show you just how much I love and appreciate everything you have all done for me.”

Many users have commented on Delphine’s last update voicing their displeasure as there hasn’t been another post in over 30 days. Dexerto has censored possible real names to protect identities.

“You still haven’t gotten me added to snapchat use,” one said.

“I pay $100 and I get nothing all month?” another commented.

An upset supported chimed, “The B I G ripoff.”

One user claimed that Delphine had added him on Snapchat and then removed him out of nowhere. “She completely ripped me off of $50. If she doesn’t add me back I’m no longer paying next month.”

“The last time I spoke with her was July 5,” a fan revealed. “We were talking about me buying the $1000 tier, and then she just stopped replying since then.”

Patreon/Belle DelphineA user claimed he was considering moving to the $1000 tier.500

Some of her fans, however, still have her back. “She’s just on hiatus rn. Please don’t disrespect Belle. She will continue making content, this was just a bad month.”

With Belle’s Instagram deleted, the last time the cosplay star uploaded any photos was early in August with an assortment of raunchy Twitter pictures.

We had previously calculated that with 3,292 Patrons, the bare minimum she would be making per month after Patreon’s max cut is $2,897. That’s a lot of money for doing apparently doing nothing.

Patreon/Belle DelphineNot all of Belle’s supporters have given up hope.500

In Belle’s last Patreon post she revealed that she had food poisoning in Greece and had fallen ill around the same time Instagram banned her account for containing ‘nudity and adult content’. As such, she had to go to the hospital to recover.

Is it possible that Belle is sick again or on yet another vacation? None of her supporters seem to know. Regardless, they feel betrayed and demand an explanation.

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.
