TikTok star Griffin Johnson has now denied the rumors that he cheated on Dixie D’Amelio, shortly after apologizing to his former partner for their breakup.

Following many accusations early into the pair’s relationship, Dixie had initially deflected from the idea of Griffin cheating on her but has since spoken out about the scandal.

After weeks of avoiding the accusations and even coming under fire for a fake apology video, Griffin Johnson finally issued a proper apology, on September 1, taking the blame for the pair’s split earlier in the year.

While rumors were continuing to spread about why they broke up, the TikTok star has now also addressed the cheating accusations.

During Bryce Hall’s latest YouTube vlog on September 12, Sway House members grouped up to pull some stunts with fellow content creator Tanner Fox.

However, before they set off, Hall began to joke about Griffin Johnson being single and asked him directly whether or not he cheated on Dixie.

When discussing what to title the vlog, Hall suggested that “Did Griffin Johnson actually cheat?” would likely draw in a lot of viewers.

However, the conversation quickly took a more serious route, with Griffin denying the rumors and claiming to see the record straight.

“Why are you guys doing this to me? No,” Griffin responded, in denial of the rumors.

But when Bryce followed up, Johnson did reveal that he had been talking to another girl towards the end of their relationship, adding, “I did Snapchat a girl.”

It seems the pair have both moved past the drama, after calling for fans to stop harassing each other and Dixie has even been rumored to be dating fellow TikTok star Noah Beck following her public breakup.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
