While the rivalry between controversial YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI is well-known, it seems that the UK-based YouTuber has cropped up another rivalry, in the process – Jake Paul, Logan’s younger brother, also has beef with KSI, which could take a drastic turn in the near future.

YouTuber, model, and music artist Erika Costell parted ways with Jake Paul in November 2018, following the release of Shane Dawson’s documentary series “The Mind of Jake Paul.”

While Paul obviously wasn’t over their relationship in the months that followed (hello, his ‘I’m Single’ music video), he has since found romance with YouTuber Tana Mongeau – but a new development might stir some complicated feelings in the Team 10 founder.

Costell posted a Tweet on June 17 asking if any UK-based YouTubers wanted to make a collaborative video with her, ahead of her trip across the pond.

In a surprising turn of events, KSI responded to her request, simply replying with, “I’m down.”

Costell seemed to be up for the idea, as well, writing, “Lowkey, same,” in response.

While a collaboration between these two might hint at some forthcoming dirt on Jake Paul, it wouldn’t be the first time fans have speculated that both KSI and Costell were involved, in some way; in fact, shortly after her split with Jake in November, fans noticed that KSI had followed the model on Instagram, prompting a slew of rumors that the two were secretly dating.

KSI even took shots at Jake Paul following their breakup, claiming that he’d “gotten bored” of Costell

“Imagine being in a relationship with that kid,” KSI said of the matter during an episode of the ‘What’s Good?’ podcast.

Jake and KSI have since cropped up a fierce feud between them, with the two exchanging shots on Twitter and even arranging a boxing match, following KSI’s upcoming rematch against Logan Paul in November 2019.

This latest development follows KSI’s spat with Logan Paul and Mike Majlak over Twitter, after accusing the pair of being disorganized in planning for their rematch.

While the fight is slated for November, no exact date nor venue have yet been announced for the bout as of June 18.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
