YouTube superstar Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has stated he is “bored” of waiting to set a date to rematch boxing rival Logan Paul in the United States, calling for the fight to go down in the UK once again – next year.

After knocking out Joe Weller in his boxing debut, KSI squared off against Paul after months of trash talk on August 25, 2018 in the Manchester Arena – generating over 1.05 million pay-per-view buys worldwide on YouTube and their official website.

The bout ended in a majority draw, two judges scored the contest 57-57 and one favored KSI 58-57, making a rematch inevitable to truly settle who is the boxing king of YouTube.

However, there have been no developments for almost a year on when the next match up will take place, with KSI confirming he would be willing to travel to enemy territory to fight but prefers Dubai as a neutral venue.

Now, the Sidemen star has expressed his frustrations with arranging the fight in the US and called for his opponent to accept another showdown on British shores, at the 02 Arena in London next year.

KSI suggested planning the event went off without a hitch in the UK, but nothing has happened in regard to setting a time and place in the States.

The 25-year-old claimed he is “bored” of waiting and took shots at the previous fight’s judging, suggesting that “everyone knew Logan Paul lost the fight that night”, goading his rival to rise the challenge of another UK face off.

It was recently announced that KSI had signed with popular energy drink company G FUEL and the Brit couldn’t resist taking a jab at Paul during his own video revealing the partnership, knocking out a Paul lookalike.

Whether KSI can replicate the feat against his American foe, remains to be seen.

Jeffree Star has been involved in several controversies throughout the years, but now the internet personality has found himself in hot water after being sued for using Anna Nicole Smith’s name in a lipstick shade.

Jeffree Star is a multi-talented internet personality, but he’s best known for being the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics.

His cosmetics company reportedly sells more than 100 million dollars worth of products each year. It started with three lipstick colors and expanded into a whopping collection of many different make-up products.

Jeffree Star Anna Nicole Smith SuedJeffree Star is no stranger to controversy.

However, the company has recently been sued by Anna Nicole Smith’s estate for selling a lipstick named “Anna Nicole” in their Velour Liquid Lipsticks line. The estate inherited all the intellectual property rights associated with her name after she passed away in February 2007.

The estate believes the lipstick was clearly named after Anna Nicole Smith. They also claim it’s a very similar shade to the one she wore herself. What’s more, it seems like Jeffree Star Cosmetics never sought out permission to use her name on their products.

This prompted them to file a lawsuit, claiming Jeffree Star Cosmetics used Anna Nicole Smith’s “name, image, and likeness to advertise for sale and sell its different commercial products.”

The estate also claimed the company is selling a lip liner and eyeliner inspired by Anna Nicole Smith. It also happens to be one of their best-selling products.

If their lawsuit is successful, it’s very likely that they could be entitled to some or all of the profits Jeffree Star Cosmetics has made from selling the Anna Nicole lipstick, as well as the additional lip liner and eyeliner. 

Jeffree Star has not made an official response to the lawsuit yet. However, we will update you as more information arises.
