It looks like cuffing season is well underway for on-off TikTok couple Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett, as the former shared a series of close snaps of the two stars in each other’s arms ahead of a Halloween event.

For the ex-couple, things have been awkward, to say the least, after they broke up under a cloud of speculation and cheating rumors. Not only was there speculation that Richards was using Tinder, but there were also rumors that Barrett had kissed Hype House’s Chase Hudson shortly after his own breakup with TikTok starlet Charli D’Amelio.

However, in recent weeks, it seems like Barrett has made an effort to make amends with Richards, as she admitted earlier this month in an interview that her highly controversial kiss with Hudson was a “terrible mistake”.

Since then, it seems that the two have let bygones be bygones, with Richards sharing a few pretty romantic snaps of the two all dressed up for Halloween. Coyly mentioning that Barrett had done his Halloween makeup, he uploaded a series of pictures of the two arm in arm, with one especially intimate photo showing him hugging her from behind.

Cozy photos on Josh Richards’ Instagram account has caused fans and influencers alike to speculate that they’ve reconciled.

Naturally, this led to excited fans going into overdrive. While several rejoiced at the return of “Jessa”, one Instagram user joked in a comment that got over 8,000 likes: “So are y’all getting back together or what?”

And it wasn’t just fans who had something to say about the snap. TikTok royalty Addison Rae mysteriously commented that she “love[s]” the photo, while Sway House’s Nick Bean said what everyone is thinking: “Y’all confuse me but it’s ok”.

What happened between Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett?

After months of speculation, Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett announced their relationship in October 2019. They met on TikTok (naturally) and posted a lot of adorable content together before calling it quits seven months later in June 2020.

Richards and Barrett announced their breakup in a bittersweet YouTube video in June.

Although rumors around the time of their breakup suggested that Richards had cheated on Barrett, the two put up a united front in a YouTube video entitled ‘We Broke Up’, where they blamed the pressures of being in the public eye combined with their relationship moving too quickly for its eventual breakdown.

“We were in a very serious relationship but we weren’t ready for as serious as it was,” Richards said at the time. “We realized that we needed to mature and we needed to grow as people. I personally have never seen two people love each other and care for each other as much as Josh and me. We just had a lot of growing to do still.”

“I just really want to stress the fact that neither of us mistreated each other in the relationship,” Barrett added.

The ex-couple have seemingly grown closer in recent weeks, with Barrett even featuring in some of Richards’ YouTube videos.

However, it didn’t take long for the breakup to turn sour after Chase Hudson admitted to kissing Nessa Barrett shortly after his own breakup with Charli D’Amelio in July.

Luckily, it seems like the two social media superstars have put all that drama behind them and, if nothing else, are at least close friends again.

Magnus Carlsen forfeits after terrible blunder in $1.5m Chess tournament

Norwegian chess champion Magnus Carlsen forfeited his game against Ian Nepomniachtchi after he accidentally mis-clicked, explaining that in that scenario forfeiting the game was the fairest thing to do for his opponent.

At the age of 22 in 2013, Magnus Carlsen became the world’s second youngest world championship winner. He has since gone on to win various titles, and has certainly become a formidable opponent in the chess world.

Along with his insane abilities, he has also provided some bizarre tournament moments for viewers on Twitch, in clips that have gone hugely viral.

Magnus has been referred to as a chess prodigy.

Back in September, Magnus was late to a match with opponent Hikaru Nakamura, and when he finally showed up on screen he was hurriedly putting on his shirt, much to the frustration of his opponent and the hilarity of the internet, who loved the awkward entrance.

This time round however, Magnus’s error wasn’t so funny, but more frustrating for him and his supporters, after the pitfalls of technology began to rear their ugly head.

The commentators looked on in shock as Magnus dropped his Queen in the wrong place, mouths agape as they said “wait, did Magnus just mouse slip?”

As they spent a few seconds speculating on how his opponent would respond, Magnus quickly cleared up the uncertainty by almost immediately forfeiting the game.

When explaining his decision later on, Magnus explained “after I dropped the queen, maybe because he was in shock of what happened. I decided that one thing I don’t want to happen is him to think “should I offer a draw since it slipped and it went in position,” and so on. So I just resigned so he wouldn’t have to make any of those decisions.”

The blunder certainly left fans and announcers alike bewildered, but none more so than Magnus as the avoidable mistake might not have happened if it weren’t for technology.

Though, his decision to forfeit the game meant he saved him and his opponent from some tricky decisions.
