Twitch star, musician and Offline TV member Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki has hit back at trolls on Reddit after being accused of cheating on fellow streamer and entertainer Michael Reeves.

LilyPichu’s relationship with Reeves was preceded by her highly emotional split from streamer Albert ‘Sleightlymusical’ Chang in late 2019, after he admitted to being unfaithful to Ki following subtweets on the matter made by Offline TV members Pokimane and Fedmyster.

While the drama surrounding their split has since died down, it seems that a new scandal has risen to take its place, with Ki addressing further accusations of infidelity made by Reddit trolls — this time, against her.

Twitch star LilyPichu is now dating fellow streamer and content creator Michael Reeves, following her split from broadcaster Sleightlymusical in 2019.

Pichu spoke out on the subject in a series of pointed Tweets on May 11, hitting back at claims that she was cheating on new beau Michael Reeves with Fedmyster, as alleged by trolls in her private messages on Reddit.

“I had a drunk stream with friends recently, which was very fun, but I do not find it fun how some people people have messaged me insinuating I’m cheating on Michael by being close to Fed,” she wrote. “It’s super f**king gross and out of line, and disappointing to read.”

That’s not all; she also revealed that one offender had repeatedly spammed the accusations in many of the Offline TV members’ subreddits, leading LilyPichu to ultimately avoid private messaging, altogether.

The streamer went on to admit that the subject of cheating is somewhat “touchy” for her, as she recently got over a heartbreak after dealing with infidelity from her previous relationship with Sleightlymusical.

“I am, admittedly, a little touchy about cheating, so it made me [pouting face] for a bit, might have overreacted,” she continued. “Sorry. Stay comfy. I will be back to stream DnD tomorrow.”

Fans have since come out in support of Ki’s situation, with many decrying the accusations made by the Reddit trolls and reiterating that Fed and Pichu are merely longtime friends.

While both Reeves and Fed have yet to speak out on the situation, Lily is supported by a community in the midst of yet another difficulty regarding her private love life in the face of further drama and speculation.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

(Topic begins at 14:57)

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
