Jaden Hossler slams paparazzi for making him speed by following him

TikToker Jaden Hossler has spoken out against celebrity photographer Kevin Wong for “following” him on his Instagram story.

Jaden Hossler has been under a lot of scrutiny recently. As well as being accused of “disrespect” by music producer Christian Delgrosso, his new leaked song with Iann Dior – entitled ‘Tonight’ –  also caused a lot of backlash, with many assuming that he was taking a swipe at ex-girlfriend Mads Lewis.

Naturally, this has led to Hossler receiving a lot more press attention, but as demonstrated by his recent Instagram story – which depicted a run-in with paparazzo Kevin Wong – this can sometimes go too far.

Celebrity photographer Kevin Wong is a regular paparazzo in the LA area, and can usually be found interviewing and photographing various TikTok stars and influencers on his YouTube channel and Instagram account.

Kevin Wong is an established photographer, who can usually be found creating content surrounding TikTok stars.

He has received some criticism in the past for his slightly forward and pushy approach, and he has been called out by Hossler himself on Instagram.

Hossler’s story shows Wong tailing Hossler in his car, with Hossler pointing out in his story that Wong even had to pull over on the highway due to his pursuit of Hossler.

He admits in the story that he was “speeding to get away” because he didn’t know who was following him. Criticizing Wong for being “unsafe”, he said that rather than following him, Wong should “at least find us naturally in restaurants or something”.

He can also be heard in the video saying: “Please stop following me Kevin”.

Wong was quick to respond to these accusations by uploading a video of his own to social media.

He claims that he was “driving around and managed to bump into Jaden and Mads” by chance. Claiming that he assumed they would be going to a restaurant, he says he wanted to “see where they were going”and eventually do a video with them once they arrived at their location.

“As my job, I wanted to give you guys all the tea,” Wong said.

Referring to the moment where Hossler can be heard on camera telling Wong to stop following him, the photographer said that “out of respect for Jaden, I stopped following him”.

“There are many other paparazzi that would not,” Wong continued. “They would just keep following him and following him and following him. But me, I stopped.”

Directly addressing Hossler, Wong closed the video by saying: “Jaden, man, I apologize. I hope we’re on good terms. I respect you man, you’re a good musician and I look forward to continuing to work together”.

Hossler is yet to respond to Wong’s apology.

Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan would “come to [their] room, drunk” and “massage [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also revealed he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
