Popular YouTubers Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji and Logan Paul are set to throw down once more in 2019 – but where will their rematch take place?

KSI may have spilled some sensitive information regarding the rematch’s locale during a video published on January 23, where he took calls and questions from fans on Discord.

One fan asked if the rematch would take place in New York, to which KSI had a decisive answer.

“Will the KSI vs Logan Paul II fight be in New York?” the fan asked.

“No,” KSI answered simply, moving right along to the next caller.

This latest intel holds up with KSI’s previous statements on the matter, where he expressed frustration that Paul wanted to schedule their rematch on the West Coast – which would alienate KSI’s largely European viewer base.

“…Logan’s team suggested West Coast, which makes absolutely no sense due to the UK audience time zone,” KSI said of the situation. “East Coast makes way more sense, because then, more people could watch it.”

Additionally, KSI set the date for their fight for November 2019, which contradicted previous information found on UK gambling websites that had scheduled the rematch for February 27.

Logan Paul likewise alleged that KSI had broken the terms of their contract, and even claimed that he was dodging the fight; however, KSI denied these claims, placing the blame on Paul’s team for not scheduling things on time.

Paul has yet to confirm a specific venue for the rematch.

Viral TikTok star Bella Poarch has caused a stir yet again after an insane collaboration with Benny Blanco and Justin Bieber, with some disgruntled user claiming that her popularity is not deserved enough to be collaborating with huge stars.

Belly Poarch has been one of the many breakout stars of video-sharing app TikTok. The 19-year-old has absolutely stormed people’s For You Pages with her adorable videos, and her lip sync to British diss track ‘M to the B’ earned the most likes on the app with a whopping 40 million.

Her most popular content often involves her bobbing her head along to a viral TikTok sound along with cute facial expressions, a video style that has won her 37 million followers and substantial engagement on the platform.

However, even her lighthearted videos have won her some controversy, with many claiming that her “kawaii” style was attempting to imitate children in a supposedly suggestive manner.

At the time, Bella responded to the hate by saying “why is it not allowed to act cute? It’s a natural thing to most Asians. But people seem to hate me for it.” However her comment section is still packed with people who are opposed to her content, and the insane popularity she has won as a result.

Now, she has collaborated with none other than music producer Benny Blanco and Justin Bieber, which has exacerbated the hate to an extreme degree.

The quirky video features Bella standing in an elevator alone to the tune of Bieber and Blanco’s ‘Lonely.’ The doors close, and when they open again, the three stars do a bizarre dance together with stuffed animals.

While seemingly a recipe for breaking the internet, the comment section is a solid mix of positivity for TikTok meeting mainstream music, and negative comments directed towards Bella’s sudden rise to fame.

“Why is she famous again?” one user asked, in a comment that received over 200 likes. Many objected to the fact that she was able to meet such huge stars, saying “remind me again how she is able to meet all these people just because she nodded her head?”
