YouTuber, model, and music artist Erika Costell has finally spoken out about her breakup with controversial social media star Jake Paul, as seen in a short conversation with the Hollywood Fix.

Costell was met with an interviewer from the Fix outside of a shopping mall on November 23, where she was asked about her upcoming moves following her breakup with the youngest Paul brother.

Costell nonchalantly addressed her split with Paul at the cameraman’s behest, claiming that the breakup was, indeed, for real.

She likewise admitted that she and YouTuber Alissa Violet (also ex-girlfriend to Jake Paul) would likely never rekindle their friendship after the debacle, which followed Shane Dawson’s documentary series covering Paul’s tumultuous relationship with Violet by nearly a month.

“I don’t think so,” Costell said on the matter, replying “yes,” when asked if “that ship had already sailed.”

Costell also revealed that she has several new projects in the works, including new music, telling her followers to “stay tuned” for more information.


Jake Paul announced his split with Costell in a Tweet on November 7, following a whirlwind of breakup rumors surrounding the couple. While sources close to Paul have since revealed that he is looking for another serious relationship, Instagram model Nikki Banner admitted that he had been texting other women the morning after their hookup in late October.

YouTuber KSI has likewise been involved in the drama, calling out Logan Paul in response to the breakup Tweet and dissing Jake during an episode of the Sidemen’s “What’s Good?” podcast. He has since followed Costell on Instagram, as well; while Costell has yet to follow him back, it looks as if she’s focusing on her own career in the interim.

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.
