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.

Small Warzone streamer gets 3 million Twitch followers overnight

A Warzone streamer has been thrust into the top 30 of most followed Twitch streamers after receiving a huge, and unusual, boost in one go. 

Building up a following and community on Twitch can, obviously, be a slog if you’re starting from scratch. Streamers can stream for weeks and months on end without even having their talents recognized and blow up in popularity like others. 

Some others can take shortcuts, be it because they have a following on another platform, or because they decide to inflate it with fake accounts. 

This has happened before, with casino accounts smashing records in a bid to advertise their platform, while smaller streamers have been hit with huge boosts in an attempt to troll them for one reason or another.

NeonSniperPanda has become the fastest growing streamer for October.

Warzone streamer NeonSniperPanda has become the newest content creator to be struck by these boosts, as his channel has rocketed into the top 30 of most-followed Twitch streamers. 

The streamer, who had previously built up a modest following of nearly 10,500, received the unusual boost in early October, jumping up to over 3.3 million followers. 

As previously mentioned, this figure puts him up there with some of Twitch’s biggest names like Fortnite World Cup champion Bugha and Spanish content creator Ibai, though, NeonSniperPanda hasn’t inflated the figures himself.

NeonSniperPanda jumped up over 3.3 million followers on Twitch.

The Warzone streamer has called on Twitch a number of times to help him out, noting that he’d been botted out of the blue and given the ridiculous amount of followers.

“Yo quick reminder, I was follow botted 3.3 million and there’s no way to delete them @TwitchSupport @Twitch can you help me out bro bro,” he tweeted. 

Previously, the aileybeanssa channel had been hit with a similar botting, as they rose up to have over 4.64 million Twitch followers in September. However, those figures have since been removed. 

Given that Twitch has been able to scrub channels of botted followers, they should be able to do the same for NeonSniperPanda, but it remains to be seen as and when they might do so.
