YouTuber and social media star Logan Paul spilled some major tea in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter – including a possibility that his ex-girlfriend, actress Chloe Bennet, might have anticipated his fall from grace.

According to Paul, his infamous trip to Japan in early 2018 was inspired by Bennet, herself. However, the couple got into a heated argument just a week before the the two were set to leave for the island nation with a small group of friends.

Paul stated that their argument stemmed from something as simple as a disagreement on which hotel they were to stay at. Bennet was apparently so upset at Paul’s behavior that she decided to skip out on the trip, and made an oddly chilling statement in the process.

“She’s like, ‘Yo, this behavior is going to bite you in the ass,’” Paul said to The Reporter. “‘I don’t know how, I don’t know when, but you’re going to crash and burn.’ “

Bennet’s clairvoyant claim eventually came true on that very trip. Paul was at the center of global controversy due to filming a deceased person in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest.’

Of course, that wasn’t his only debacle to go on record: his entire travel experience in Japan was rife with disrespectful behavior in the famously conservative nation, which both its citizens and audiences around the globe took issue with.

Paul admitted that the debacle cost him five million dollars, after which he was kicked from Google’s Preferred advertising program. 

While Paul continues to find success on YouTube, his character was recently pulled from the YouTube original series, Foursome.

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.
