Jaden Hossler has reacted to rumors that the lyrics in his music refer to his recent breakup with Mads Lewis on Dixie D’Amelio’s YouTube talk show.

Jaden is a popular TikToker and a former member of TikTok’s Sway House, having left the collective in May to dedicate more time to his music. Madison ‘Mads’ Lewis also has a big following, with 10.9 million followers and 5.6 million Instagram followers.

The pair first started dating in the second half of 2019 but broke up in February after rumors that Jaden had cheated. They began dating again in the summer, but it looks like the relationship is over once again after cryptic posts to social media pointed to a breakup.

In particular, fans pointed out a clip from a live Instagram stream by Jaden’s friend Cooper Noriega. In the video, the lyrics to an unreleased track sang by Jaden references the dog “Juice” that Mads and Jaden adopted together and features the lyrics “I’m through, I’ve had enough of you, I’m giving up.”

Mads was understandably upset at the lyrics and unfollowed Jaden on Instagram. She also posted a clip of a song she had been working on with emotional lyrics that point to an unfaithful boyfriend: “I wanted to believe that you were still sleeping alone.”

Fans of both TikTokers felt the diss track was unfair towards Mads Lewis. One comment on TikTok room read: “I legit feel so bad for Mads. She speaks so highly of him, legit allows the whole internet to call her obsessed because she is so in love with him, and he does this.”

Jaden has now addressed the backlash as a guest on Dixie D’Amelio’s weekly YouTube talk show after Dixie asked Jaden why he would write a song so mean about a girl.

“Because music is my outlet…the song is not released, it wasn’t supposed to be released,” he said. “I’m an artist you know, like my whole goal is just to be authentic and talk about stuff that I’ve been through and how I feel…and I think people overlook that quite often.”

When Dixie asked Jaden what question he was most worried about, he said, “probably about Mads, I don’t know that’s just like such a sore topic because of whatever feelings are involved,” and added that he and Mads had spoken offline too.

Clearly emotions are still very high for both Mads and Jaden.

Viewer who sued Twitch for $25M over “simp culture” denied by judge

Erik Estavillo, the Twitch viewer who sued the platform for $25 million in damages for exposing him to “overly suggestive and sexual content from various female streamers” including Pokimane and Alinity while using the site has had his case denied by a California court.

Back in June of 2020 Estavillo, who has previously sued Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and Blizzard, filed a lawsuit against Twitch in the Santa Clara Superior Court of California.

According to the lawsuit, Twitch’s “twisted programming net code” combined with OCD and sex addiction made it nearly impossible for him to use Twitch without being exposed to “sexual content.”

Estavillo named a number of female streamers in his complaint, including Pokimane, Alinity, Amouranth, and others, while requesting they be “permanently banned,” however, it doesn’t seem like the court agreed he had a case.

Pokimane and others no longer have to fear being “permanently banned” as Estavillo requested.

In the tentative ruling posted by the court, the judge said the main problem with Estavillo’s case was the evidence he brought forward wasn’t enough to support the claims in his lawsuit.

“The “exhibits” submitted by Plaintiff [Estavillo] with his opposition do not identify, much less support, any claims under California law,” the ruling reads.

Basically, after the lawsuit was filed lawyers representing Twitch made a motion with the court to dismiss it, and the court did “with prejudice.” That means this saga seems to be over, once and for all, and can’t be brought back to court.

A lot of people questioned how far Estavillo would get with his case by blaming some of the biggest female Twitch streamers.

Despite this, the self-described Twitch addict has said he plans on appealing this ruling to the 6th District Court of Appeals, but whether or not things will fare any differently for him there remains to be seen.

Estavillo, who was following 786 female streamers and 0 male streamers at the time of the complaint back in June, said he wanted $25 million from Twitch, along with having all of the female streamers he had mentioned “permanently banned.” With the court’s decision though, that happening now seems slimmer than ever.
