Popular YouTuber Deji Olatunji has spoken out about his month-long feud with older brother ‘KSI,’ which came to a halt after he uploaded an apology video in early January.

Deji reacted to various memes joking about his feud in a video on January 19, which marked his first upload since going dark on his main channel.

Deji had a good laugh at a few of the memes, admitting that he and his brother are now on good terms after their vicious spat in late 2018.

“Listen, alright, we’re cool now,” Deji explained through laughter. “Me and JJ, we’re cool. Brothers fight, alright, at the end of the day. I know it spiraled out a bit out of control, but brothers fight.”

Deji likewise poked fun at his massive loss in subscribers during their fight, which saw him lose over 65,000 subs in the last thirty days (as presented by Social Blade as of January 19).

The brothers’ spat began after Deji leaked KSI’s bank records for a diss track in late November, after which he accused his brother of getting a girl pregnant. The two went back and forth for nearly a month, with Deji even creating a diss track against his brother named ‘Unforgivable,’ as well as appearing on Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast to discuss the feud.

Deji has since deleted the diss track, following a phone call with Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR and a message from the brothers’ parents, who claimed that their home was being targeted by angry fans.


TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
