Huge YouTube vlogger Casey Nesitat has revealed the renovation on his 3.7 million dollar LA home with his wife Candice Pool, and it looks just as incredible as you would expect.

After Casey started documenting his life through the medium of daily vlogs on YouTube in 2015, he started getting an incredible amount of traction on the platform.

His background as a filmmaker helped him elevate his content above basic filming techniques, and has garnered him over 12 million subscribers on YouTube, with almost three billion views across his many videos.

On May 10 2019, Casey announced through a video that he would be leaving New York City “forever.” He explained that he wanted to move to LA because they have so much family there, saying: “I think when you get older, your priorities are no longer about you – they become about your kids and I don’t want to raise my kids without family.”

Then began his LA journey, purchasing a property with partner Candice in Venice, LA for $3.7 million according to Dirt. The seaside neighborhood also sees properties selling for up to $5 million in the case of Game of Throne star Emilia Clark.

In a feature with Architectural Digest, Casey and Candice shared details of the renovation on their LA four bedroom house. In his Instagram post, Casey called it his “fancy-ass rich guy house,” and looking at the pictures, it’s certainly easy to see how he came up with the nickname.

The house is bright and open, a classic feature of these high price point LA houses, with floor to ceiling windows in many areas, and sharp, stylish decor. That’s not to say that the house is without personality, though.

Interesting features such as the pastel pink staircase, and colorful patterned wallpaper ensure that the house has the warmth needed for a family home, just what Casey wanted when he decided to leave his New York life behind. More details of the redecoration process can be found in Casey’s feature at Architectural Digest.

Commenters were in awe, saying “this house is stunning” and talking about their favorite parts of the gorgeous design including “the window design” in the sleek new kitchen.

Many hope that now the renovation is complete Casey might start vlogging more frequently again like he used do.

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has responded to rumors about her and Diplo after she revealed that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ. 

Quenlin Blackwell, 19, first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers. Now, she has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok. Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

TikTokers were left bemused by the surprising news and demanded to know more detail. Thousands of fans commented on Quenlin’s videos with Diplo, mostly reflecting a mix of amusement and shock, writing “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad,” and “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this.”

Quenlin began a series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians, after the strong reaction from her followers and has so far filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

However, speculation about the pair has clearly gone too far for Quenlin who was forced to address rumors on her Twitter.

She wrote: “I’m an adult. I’m not being groomed. Platonic relationships exist. I’ve been living here for over a year. I’d rather break both of my legs and be forced to walk than pursue Diplo romantically and he’d rather choke.

“He’s barely in LA because he’s so busy. Diplo has given me the opportunity and the security to create. Diplo and his team are my mentors in LA and they are my safety net.

“Diplo and his team have saved me numerous times from the weirdos in LA. My parents trust him. I trust him. Y’all are making me feel icky. Diplo is my LA dad…nothing more.”

Diplo also responded to the situation on Twitter and wrote: “Ok so I rent one of my properties to Quen Blackwell and yes I use the studio that is in that building.

“Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us.”

Despite the backlash, Quenlin made jokes about the reaction from fans, even sarcastically tweeting: “Okay time to tell y’all the truth…I’m mixed and Diplo is my father.”

She has since continued the TikTok series and posted screenshots of texts between her and Diplo, and a video of them dancing together.
