KSI hits back at Ricegum and accuses him of lying about earnings

After being called petty and having his music dissed by Ricegum, KSI has finally responded and disputed specific claims made by his former collaborator.

If you haven’t been following the KSI and Ricegum beef, kudos for having more productive distractions. If you have been following it, kudos for appreciating the art that is silly, juicy internet drama.


And, whether you’re in either camp, we’re continuing to set the table for all the spice these two former collaborators are serving up. In the latest course, KSI explains that he’s sick of Ricegum “dissing” him and “chatting s**t” about how their earnings from the “Earthquake” video were split.

For some brief context, the pair were buddies back when they dropped the aforementioned video in 2017, but have since fallen out. The details of their debilitated relationship weren’t revealed until this week when Rice appeared on KEEMSTAR’s DramaAlert to explain the beef.


As he dictates, he wanted, but was denied, a free ticket from the British star to attend the boxing match against Logan Paul. So he accepted a free ticket from Paul, and a “petty” KSI then unfollowed Rice on social media and deleted their video (before re-uploading it because it had gotten so many views). 

But KSI now refutes those claims and rebukes that he simply got sick of him trying to attack the UK YouTuber’s music: “Rice, I unfollowed you because you’ve been dissing me.”


To start things off, KSI reacted to the unfollowing claims by showing that he hadn’t actually unfollowed Rice on everything — something he quickly fixed by unfollowing Rice’s Twitter.


Then, in response to the claim that he re-uploaded the video just for the views, he simply decided to show how little he cares by sharing his screen and deleting the video permanently. 

While Rice believed the Paul invitation to be the source of KSI’s ire, the latter explains that it was actually caused by two disses: a line from his “DaAdult” track and a quote from his podcast appearance, in which he asserts “I feel like my songs are better than [KSI’s].” 


But one, particularly juicy issue requires the talents of fact-checkers. Ricegum cited that, when asked about splitting the earnings, he told KSI “Just keep it, man. I don’t even want anything … just give me a feature back.”


The Brit says this is nonsense, and that he’s “pretty sure” the split was “50-50,” that the YouTuber “got paid for the track” and is “still getting paid for the track.” 

While both come out of this seeming fairly petty, that does make for quality drama. Ricegum has yet to respond to this earnings dispute, but it may be time to break out the paperwork and settle the facts.


Freddie Flintoff reveals unusual favorite car

Freddie Flintoff is a former professional cricket player and current host of BBC’s Top Gear. Now in his third series as presenter, Flintoff has revealed the best cars he’s ever owned throughout his career.

When the BBC announced Freddie Flintoff as one of the new presenters for Top Gear back in 2019, it was a decision that not many had seen coming. Famous for his past life as a professional cricketer and his witty humor, Freddie seemed an unlikely choice to present the motoring show.


Since then, he’s settled into the role fantastically, and along with Paddy and Chris, brings his own brand of humor to the show. It also turns out that Freddie is a big petrolhead at heart too, which he revealed in an interview with CarBuzz.

Freddie is now in his third season as co-host of BBC’s Top Gear.

Freddie Flintoff’s car history

“I love driving that car” admitted Freddie when asked about his Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Purchased from co-host Chris Harris, Flintoff admits it gets a lot of attention “because of how loud it is” when driven around England.


The Camaro isn’t the only exciting car that he has ever owned, and it turns out his ‘back catalog’ of cars reads like a typical celebrity petrolhead’s garage.

Discounting the aforementioned Camaro, Freddie has owned a number of noteworthy cars. Given that his first car was a Porsche Boxster, he started off on a strong footing. With a Porsche as the first car he owned, his collection went from strength-to-strength as his career progressed.

BMWs, Porsches, and Ferraris all feature in Flintoff’s history. One notable inclusion was an E39 BMW M5 which he said was “one of his favorites.” He clearly loved the old M5, as he went out and bought a new version as well.


Freddie has been attempting some ridiculous stunts while on Top Gear, including attempting to take a Jaguar XJ220 to 200mph:

Porsche was bound to make another appearance since his first car was from the German marque, and it came in the form of a 997-generation Porsche 911 Turbo. Hailed as one of the best ‘everyday’ supercars, there aren’t many petrolheads that haven’t owned a 911 at some stage of their life.

Other supercars that he has owned include a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, a Ferrari 458, and a Lamborghini Murcielago. For luxury driving duties, Freddie owns a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, which he’s admitted he “looks a bit dodgy” while driving.

So, with all of the incredible cars he’s owned, which was his favorite? A humble Ford Mustang convertible, which he owned back when he lived in Dubai! Clearly, a flashy badge isn’t everything for Freddie.
