Logan Paul alleges that KSI is hiding a new girlfriend

Popular YouTuber and white-collar boxer Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji could be hiding a new girlfriend, according to controversial social media star Logan Paul.

Paul speculated that KSI may have found a new main squeeze during his reaction video to YouTube rapper ‘Quadeca’s’ diss track toward KSI, where Quadeca threw out a line insinuating that KSI was hiding a girlfriend from the public eye.

Paul appeared to agree with the line, and even revealed that he’d heard rumors about KSI’s recent romantic escapades from other sources.

“I heard this,” Paul confirmed. “KSI has a girlfriend.”

Paul even claimed that KSI was hiding his relationship for fear that Paul would find out, going on to invite the woman in question to “slide in the DMs.”

“I know for a fact he’s hiding her, because he probably doesn’t want me to find out,” Paul continued. “When they break up, which I’m sure will happen shortly, because you know how he treats women… feel free to ‘slide,’ whatever you want.”

Paul’s statement follows an unexpected development that occurred in the aftermath of Erika Costell’s breakup with YouTuber Jake Paul, after which KSI followed Costell on Instagram. 

While neither party has made a public statement regarding the incident, fans have speculated that KSI could be making moves on the model – and that his ‘secret girlfriend’ could very well be Costell, herself.

While Paul’s invitation toward KSI’s alleged lady-love was likely made in jest, if serious, it would mark a sharp turn from his possible relationship with Australian model Casey Boonstra, who he was seen holding hands with at the Flat Earth International Conference in early November.

Fans rally as Sykkuno, Dream, and more are snubbed by Twitter Verified

On December 2, Twitter rolled out a huge mass verification, where many accounts of top gamers, streaming personalities and more were finally verified after a rather long wait. But some fans were left frustrated when Twitter seemed to gloss over popular creators like Sykkuno, Dream, and CallMeCarson.

Verification on Twitter is often regarded as a huge achievement for rising creators. That little blue tick is generally a marker that someone is making it big, leading to frequent campaigns led by fans for their favorite creators to be granted verified status.

Twitter decided to grant several wishes all at once on December 2 when they verified a huge number of accounts in one go. One such account was that of Corpse Husband, a YouTuber who has been on the platform for a few years, but experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this year following the Among Us hype.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

But not everyone was celebrating, as among the chaos of fans and creators rejoicing at their new-found verification, some big names were left behind.

Popular streamer Sykkuno trended on the site with the hashtag ‘VerifySykkuno’ as fans vented their frustration about the snub. “Do it, he deserves it,” one fan wrote.

Fellow streamer Valkyrae tweeted a message in support of the internet campaign, which Sykkuno even retweeted from his account.

Other popular creators that found themselves snubbed by the Twitter Verified account included Minecraft YouTuber Dream, and comedy YouTuber CallMeCarson, who each tweeted their own tongue-in-cheek messages calling out Twitter.

Amid the disarray, instead of verifying YouTuber Karl Jacobs’ account, they accidentally verified the wrong Karl Jacobs with just 200 followers, leading to an onslaught of replies from fellow creators finding the bizarre situation hilarious, including Mr Beast.

While this was one of the biggest verification sprees recently, there is no doubt that another one will be right around the corner.

Fans of the huge creators who were snubbed this time around may be in for a slightly longer wait, but with creators like Corpse Husband getting that coveted blue tick, people are getting their hopes up for the next line of verified creators.
