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.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
