TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has officially spoken out on the drama surrounding herself and fellow creator Addison Rae, after the latest was exposed for having liked comments questioning D’Amelio’s popularity before her explosive rise to fame.

Rae became the center of internet backlash after these older comments came to light, which had been made in November 2019 underneath a few of her own TikTok videos.

Many of the comments threw shade toward Charli’s appearance and questioned how she had become so popular on the video app, leading fans to doubt their apparent friendship months later — an issue that was also called out by older sister Dixie D’Amelio.

Fans noticed that Rae had liked a few comments from 2019 that appeared to question Charli D’Amelio’s popularity on TikTok – as well as seeming to shade her appearance.

Rae addressed the matter in a lengthy Instagram caption shortly thereafter, clarifying that she hadn’t actually met Charli at the time of liking the comments and had just ended an “extremely toxic and mentally abusive relationship that tore my heart to shreds.”

Rumors quickly circulated around social media regarding the TikTokkers’ friendship in wake of the drama — but it doesn’t look like these two stars are falling out any time soon, in spite of the backlash.

Charli spoke out on the subject in a June 16 interview with the Hollywood Fix, after a reporter questioned the TikTok creator’s apparent beef with her longtime friend Addison.

“Once you’re friends, you just stay friends,” D’Amelio said of the matter. “Things happened in the past. No hard feelings from me whatsoever.”

Her latest comments follow a tweet she had posted prior to the interview, where she seemingly addressed in unfazed fashion: “Teehee, I’m chillin’.”

That wasn’t the only bombshell Charli dropped during her time with the Hollywood Fix, either; the star likewise discussed rumors surrounding her reunion with ex-boyfriend Chase Hudson, admitting that they are merely friends with no romantic connotations, at present.

D’Amelio also cleared the air regarding her current relationship with the Hype House, stating that the group are still friends but remain separated on the “business side.”

Addison Rae has yet to respond to these comments on their drama at the time of publication.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
