Two of TikTok’s biggest stars, Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson, have been in a relationship since 2019, but Lil Huddy has now confirmed that they’ve split, after weeks of rumor and speculation.

The pair had been coy about their relationship to start, but soon made it public knowledge on social media, becoming the first TikTok power-couple.

There was bound to be drama though, after fellow TikTokker Josh Richards accused Hudson of trying to DM his girlfriend Nessa Barrett, and released a diss track all about it.

Chase and Charli have over 50 million fans on TikTok combined.

The diss track sparked controversy, suggesting Chase had been cheating on Charli, but the two remained rather quiet about the whole situation, and Richards said he was “dropping the beef.” Charli’s mom, Heidi, did speak out on the rumors though.

But, on April 14, D’Amelio posted to her Instagram story to confirm they had broken up, explaining that they had decided it was “best for both of us.”

“I truly have so much love for Chase and wish nothing but the best for him,” D’Amelio said in her story. “I’m sorry I waited so long to tell you all. I wanted to take the time to process it for myself. Breakups are tough for everyone, so I’d really rather not talk about it anymore.”

Charli confirmed her breakup with Chase in her Instagram story.

Shortly after Charli’s post, Chase posted on his own Instagram too, to give his side.

“Charli is such an amazing person, and I am so beyond grateful and blessed to have spent the time I spent with her. We will always be friends and she will always hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life,” he said.

He too asked for privacy as they “start this new chapter”, and apologized that they waiting so long to tell their fans.

Chase’s message on Instagram was very similar to Charli’s.

It’s clear that the ex-couple prepared and agreed what to say before sending out the joint statement on their accounts, as the message was almost identical in each.

There are still many unanswered questions though, that will be burning in the minds of fans. Not least whether the allegations that Chase was unfaithful played any part in their breakup, but also how their relationship will now be in the Hype House together.

Both Charli and Chase are two of the leading members of the Hype House, the collaborative content house full of TikTok stars. They have filmed countless TikToks together there, but it looks like there won’t be any more for some time at least.

Though, it’s unlikely fans will get answers to these questions any time soon, as both Charli and Chase seem determined to avoid any further discussion or drama around their split.


DragonForce’s Herman Li banned from Twitch amid DMCA drama

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
