YouTuber brothers 'KSI' and 'Deji' were caught up in a heated dispute on December 25, with the former kicked out of the family home on Christmas day, but it looks like they will resolve their differences.

After months of back and forth shots, beginning after Deji allegedly revealed a pregnancy secret which KSI wanted kept out of public knowledge, and Deji later released a diss track aimed at his sibling on December 6.

On Christmas eve, KSI posted to his Twitter followers, stating that he had been kicked out of the house and that Deji would call the police if he returned.

A vicious 24 hours followed as the pair threw shots at each other over social media and YouTube, as KSI accused Deji of using the situation "for views" and "clout".

Deji responded by claiming that he was only "trying to defend" himself and "stand up to bullies", rather than doing it for the 'clout'.


KSI's final word on the situation was to say that he will be giving it no further attention, and that he doesn't plan on making any videos about it.

A few hours later, Deji responded with a final Tweet of his own. He said that the spat should have been kept private, and apologized for ruining young fans Christmas day.

He also states that he and his brother will squash their beef, although it's unclear if KSI has agreed to attempt to resolve matters.

Both YouTubers seemed to have a friendly relationship, at least publicly, for most of their time as internet stars.

Earlier in 2018, they teamed up to take on another of YouTube's best known brothers - Logan and Jake Paul - in a night of boxing. 

KSI and Deji took on the Paul brothers in 2018.

Deji lost to Jake, while KSI and Logan split the judges decision, and are set to rematch in 2019.

Whether Deji will be in the crowd cheering on his brother remains to be seen.
