YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul met for the first time in over a year at their Sept 14 rematch press conference in front of the Los Angeles Staples Center – but it looks like a second press conference may not be taking place, at all.

Following their September 14 meeting, KSI hinted at the possibility of a second conference in the United Kingdom, in keeping with the format from their previous fight in 2018.

In fact, he predicted that his opponent would get “obliterated” at the presser across the pond, noting that Paul received quite a few boos while KSI had a slew of cheering fans – despite traveling to enemy territory.

However, a subsequent Tweet from KSI put that possibility to bed, with the YouTuber announcing that there will be no UK press conference, after all.

Calling the development “a shame and quite frankly unfair,” KSI appeared to place the blame on Logan Paul, claiming that “a certain man don’t want the smoke.”

Of course, this post didn’t go unnoticed by Paul, who uploaded his response in the form of a video shortly thereafter.

“…this has nothing to do with me,” he clarified. “I’ve been trying to make this press conference happen for the past month. Found out last week that it might not happen, which sucks, ‘cause I love London. I love the people. I can assure you I want the smoke.”

This wouldn’t be the first time KSI has accused Paul of slowing down their rematch, either: the YouTuber called out his opponent on Twitter in mid-June, claiming that Paul’s management was dragging their heels in organizing the fight.

“You guys don’t know how to even create a boxing event,” KSI snapped at Maverick member Mike Majlak, calling his team “useless” and even offering to hold the rematch in the UK once more.

While details for the fight have since been sorted out, it looks like the UK is getting no love this time around – and with both YouTubers having just two months left to prepare before their rematch, time is quickly ticking down for the net’s most anticipated grudge match yet.

Nessa Barrett has been accused of throwing Mads Lewis some shade after hiding comments from fans on Twitter suggesting the two collaborate, but the TikTok star has hit back and claimed nothing was shady about it at all.

Nessa Barrett and Mads Lewis were inseparable once upon a time. The two of them were an unstoppable force, with millions of fans between them across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Unfortunately, it seems like their friendship came to a bitter end after Nessa Barrett stopped following Mads Lewis on social media and deleted the many pictures she had of them posing together.

However, Mads is still following Nessa on Instagram and hasn’t taken down their pictures together, which had led to their fans and followers believing the bitterness is one-sided. Some have even speculated that their falling out might tie into the drama between Nessa and Chase Hudson.

Either way, it seems like something happened between them. Now, Nessa Barrett has been accused of adding more fuel to the fire after many claimed she shaded her ex-best friend once again.

Did Nessa Barrett shade Mads Lewis on Twitter?

Nessa Barrett posted a harmless Tweet stating, “Feature ideas for a song or just curious.” However, many of her followers weren’t sure what she meant and chimed in with countless collaboration suggestions.

A portion of them rummaged through a list of replies she had hidden and discovered Mads Lewis was a common denominator. “Pleasure feature Avani or Mads or Josh,” wrote one fan. “MADS,” and “Madison Lewis,” wrote two others.

Some of them found it a little odd and claimed it was another example of her throwing Mads Lewis some shade.

This prompted Nessa Barrett to respond, saying, “A lot of [people] didn’t know what I meant and were commenting song ideas to my tweet so I liked the first one that I saw was actually giving me feature ideas,” she said.

 “Nothing [about] this was supposed to be shady,” she added. “I just liked the first one that I saw.”

Needless to say, the situation and her response sparked a bit of division on social media.

Some believe there is unquestionable truth in her words, and the whole situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Others claim it’s pretty clear Nessa Barrett wasn’t keen on seeing Mads Lewis name in the suggestions, so she filtered them out.

Either way, it seems like the falling out is still fresh, and they won’t be mending their friendship anytime soon. However, time heals all wounds, and many mutual fans would love to see them reunited once again down the track.
