Dixie D’Amelio fuels Griffin Johnson breakup rumors after social media snub

A few small social media updates have set the internet ablaze, as rumors surrounding the breakup of TikTok celebrities Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johhnson continue to mount up.

One of the powerhouse TikTok couples may finally be going their separate ways, if new rumors are to be believed. While D’Amelio recently shut down reports of Johnson’s infidelity, it seems like there’s now a bigger divide in the relationship than ever before.

While the couple followed one another across all social media accounts and frequently collaborated, that has now come to an end, for the time being. On July 30, D’Amelio unfollowed Johnson on both Twitter and Instagram.

Naturally, this led avid fans to speculate on the status of their relationship. While nothing is official, and may not be for some time, the writing is certainly on the wall for the end of this TikTok relationship.

Shortly after D’Amelio removed her long-time partner from her following list, Johnson updated one platform in particular as well. He changed his Twitter header from a picture of the couple to a photo of him and his friends.

While this may be considered a prank any other day of the week, recent cheating allegations paint these changes in a different light. Moreover, a fellow TikTok personality exposed Johnson for reaching out to her while still with D’Amelio.

Madison Galley shared a video on July 30 that highlighted numerous attempts from Johnson to connect with her. “Keep watching if you want to see me expose Griffin Johnson,” she captioned in the video. From Instagram to Snapchat, he sent multiple messages while still supposedly committed to D’Amelio. Even one explicitly stating that he was “single.”

D’Amelio saw this post, presumably began a dialogue with Galley, and soon unfollowed Johnson across social media.

As official statements are yet to come out from either internet personality, take this information with a grain of salt. There’s a chance this could be resolved behind closed doors after all. For the time being, however, the relationship appears to be on thin ice.

Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
