TikTok star Charli D’Amelio became an object of widespread concern after divisive influencer Lovely Peaches put out an alleged threat on her safety — but big sister Dixie claims their family is taking care of the situation.

The drama began just a week ago after Peaches — who is known for her concerning behavior and wild accusations toward other internet personalities — claimed she’d hired a 30-year-old man to carry out a sexual assault on Charli.

Fears for Charli’s safety only escalated after a mysterious, shadowy figure was spotted in the background of one of the star’s TikToks shortly thereafter, with some fans speculating it was Peaches covertly filming her — or the man she’d hired to execute her purported threat.

However, it seems the D’Amelio family is in no immediate danger, as told by Dixie during a conversation with paparazzi on July 5 — who even seemed to debunk speculation that Peaches had shown up to their home, as had been feared by fans.

“She hasn’t [shown up to our house],” Dixie answered when prompted with the situation. “But I don’t know if we’re allowed to really talk about it too much. We’re just trying to figure it out and protect our family, obviously.”

While Charli herself has yet to speak out publicly regarding Peaches, she did go live on Instagram around the same time as Dixie’s paparazzi encounter, asking fans to stop spreading speculation and “rumors” about her.

“Please do not believe things you hear, unless they come from me,” she cautioned fans. “Because a lot of them are not true. I look at that stuff, and some things are not things that we should be joking about.”

While Charli made special mention of rumors claiming she was suffering from cancer, some fans are linking her statement to Peaches, although this has yet to be confirmed as she hasn’t directly addressed the matter.

The spiel on rumors precedes an Instagram post from Peaches, herself, who claimed that Charli was harassing her, begging the TikTok star to leave her alone.

For now, fans can only watch and wait for further information from TikTok’s most-followed creator in wake of the concerning threat, even if older sister Dixie claims that everything is being handled.

TheGrefg breaks Ninja’s world record for most-viewed Twitch stream

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.
