In an August 20 vlog, Mike Majlak revealed that after Too Hot to Handle star Harry Jowsey spoke about his ex-girlfriend from the show Francesca Farago on the imPaulsive podcast, they received a cease and desist from her team.

Too Hot to Handle was a hugely popular show that debuted in April 2020, the premise being that the 15 contests should refrain from physical contact with each other to avoid depleting the $100,000 prize fund.

Harry made a name for himself on the Netflix show after winning alongside then-girlfriend Francesca. The pair cost the prize fund $32,000 thanks to their inability to stay away from each other, but won it back in the end by spending a night together without touching.

Mike Majlak is also the co-host of Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast.

They ended up winning the show together, and even went on to get engaged during a Zoom reunion of the show. However, this all came to an end when Francesca announced on her YouTube channel that Harry had broken up with her.

Harry opened up about the split in episode 202 of the imPaulsive podcast, saying that he’s “been a little bit closed off” and that he couldn’t say too much because it was getting to a point where his “lawyers are getting involved” due to talks of “defamation.”

He says they had filmed a video “together for the breakup” where they told fans they were going to “start again as friends” and build up their relationship. “But then like a day before we were meant to post it together, she posted her own thing,” he goes on to claim.

In an August 20 vlog Mike then told Harry to “tell [his] girlfriend to stop sending cease and desist forms from her lawyers for the podcast.”

“We had him on the podcast,” he explains, “I get a letter the next day from our legal team that’s like ‘yo, we just got served a cease and desist from his girlfriend.’”

The relationship has evidently ended a lot more bitterly than fans, and even the cast themselves, expected. How far the legal action will be taken remains to be seen.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
