TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is sparking concern across her fanbase after controversial influencer Lovely Peaches sent a series of concerning direct messages to her — and even claimed to be hiding outside her home.

Lovely Peaches has been a divisive figure across the internet for some time, in large part due to her shocking treatment of Charli D’Amelio, the most popular creator on TikTok with over 71 million followers.

The 16-year-old internet star became a subject of concern in late June, after Peaches sent out a shocking threat toward the dancer, claiming that she’d hired a 30-year-old man to sexually assault her.

It seems that this threat hasn’t gone away, either, with Peaches sending D’Amelio a series of highly inappropriate and threatening messages via Instagram.

While Peaches’ Instagram account is private, followers were able to share her screenshots of the messages; and what was sent is nothing less than disturbing.

“Turn yourself in,” the messages read. “We not playing. The guy who’s gonna **** you is cute. He’s ******* me also. Trust me. You’ll enjoy the ****.”

As if that wasn’t awful enough, Peaches likewise alleged that the man she’d hired to carry out the deed was part of D’Amelio’s security — but later claimed he’d been fired.

That’s not all; Peaches also posted photos to her Instagram stories that seemed to have been taken outside Charli’s home, and even claimed to be hiding in the bushes for an opportunity to enact her deplorable plan.

Posts from Instagram show that Peaches claimed she was outside of Charli D’Amelio’s home.

Considering all the threats made against Charli, fans are taking to social media out of fear for her safety — but older sister Dixie has confirmed in prior paparazzi interviews that her family is aware of the situation, although she wasn’t at liberty to speak too much about the issue, at the time.

For now, all fans can do is watch, wait and help keep D’Amelio abreast of the scenario as Peaches’ actions grow ever-more concerning, even accusing the star of “bullying” her and sending her fans to harass her over the matter.

Charli has yet to speak out about the subject at the time of writing.

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.
