Instagram model Nikki Banner, recently in the news for her relationship with YouTube star Jake Paul, spoke out on the incident in an interview with the Daily Dot.

While Banner admitted to flying out to California for a camping trip with Paul in late October, she says she went into it thinking that he and Costell were no longer a couple at that time.

Banner told Daily Dot that she “never would have gone” if she thought that Paul and Costell were still together or had a chance at reconciling. 

Banner’s statement lines up with Paul’s Tweet on the subject, which claimed that he and Costell had broken up ‘a while ago,’ before the Tweet was posted on November 7.

However, her stint with Paul wasn’t all sunshine and roses; according to Banner, although she and Paul had “hooked up” on the first night of their camping trip, he was texting other girls the very next day. 

In fact, Banner even claimed that Paul had asked her if he should hook up with model Joy Corrigan, as well as if he should mend things with Costell.

This claim aligns with DMs sent to Drama Alert host KEEMSTAR, who featured the story on November 5 – two days before Paul went public with his breakup.

“…he did do it to her, but he also did the same thing to me,” she said of the situation. “He lied to both of us. …I think it’s wrong for a guy to lie to everyone because of an image.”

Since then, Banner has been the subject of ample harassment via social media, and was even accused of breaking up the YouTube couple.


xQc responds to Hungrybox’s Super Smash Bros challenge

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has responded to Smash Bros pro Juan ‘Hungrybox’ Debiedma’s challenge of a game after the streamer had a few issues with the iconic Nintendo title. 

Just like plenty of Twitch’s other top streamers, xQc isn’t tied to one game. Sure, his fans would love to see him grinding Overwatch again, but the Canadian likes to dabble in other titles during his streams. 

Most recently, some fans got their wish as the former Overwatch League star decided to have a go at playing Super Smash Bros Ultimate online against other players. However, it didn’t work out all that well for xQc. 

The Canadian streamer let loose on his opponent, the connection, and how “trash” Smash is after a few issues with lag. However, Hungrybox wants to give him a helping hand and get xQc back playing Smash.

Hungrybox is considered one of the “Five Gods” of Smash.

After xQc started playing Smash during his November 27 stream, Hungrybox quickly floated a challenge out on Twitter. “@xQc let’s play smash this week,” he posted, sparking excitement from fans who wanted to see the pair go head-to-head. 

Though, xQc didn’t respond as quickly as some may have liked, taking a few hours to get back to the Smash star. 

When he did, however, he was seeking Hungrybox’s help rather than hitting him with some trash talk about a potential match. “You better teach me how to not get rolled by bottom 1% players,” the former Overwatch star replied. 

Seeing the pair join forces on one stream will, no doubt, delight fans of both – especially if Hungrybox is able to coach xQc up and turn him into a solid Smash player. 

Who knows, we might even see xQc ultimately take on Tyler1 after he managed to impress a number of Smash players with his performance against Hungrybox’s fellow pro MKLeo.
