Now, KEEMSTAR’s tournament is back in a major way, bringing with it some major names – and a few major YouTubers.

KSI vs Logan Paul, YouTubeLogan Paul and KSI faced off in the boxing ring in August 2018, which ended in an unsatisfying draw – leaving the two slated for a rematch in 2019.

In fact, KEEMSTAR even encouraged Logan Paul and KSI to take part in the series, giving them a virtual space to throw down in before their upcoming boxing rematch in November 2019, despite their less-than-stellar building skills.

“Listen you are both KSI & Logan Paul really bad at Fortnite,” KEEMSTAR Tweeted. “But the world would love to see you face off in #FridayFortnite!”

In a surprising twist of events, Paul actually took KEEM up on his offer, claiming that he would “pwn” KSI in the battle royale title.

Thanks to Logan’s response, it looks like the two are set for an official showdown on June 21, as Tweeted by KEEMSTAR.

“Spoke to JJ, you two dance on 21st of June,” KEEM confirmed in a reply. “You can pick any teammate in the world you want!”

While both Paul and KSI have yet to speak at length about their plans for the event, the two are slated to take part in a boxing rematch, following their initial showdown in 2018.

However, the event has undergone much scrutiny, with Paul even accusing KSI of breaking their initial contract, which allegedly penned the rematch for February 2019.

KSI later refuted these claims, stating that he would be in talks with Paul’s team to organize a date and venue for the event – matters that he claimed were the responsibility of Logan, instead of him.

YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the internet’s most famous content creators — but living in the limelight isn’t always a cake walk, as he discovered after one of his viewers began stalking his home.

Boasting well over 18 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Dobrik receives the occasional unwanted visitor at his house, which has happened several times before.

However, this latest incident took a dark turn, as revealed during an episode of Dobrik and Jason Nash’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast in early October where the star revealed one viewer took things a little too far.

During the episode, Dobrik explained that the fan — a young woman in her “early twenties” — had sat outside of his home on the street curb for two days before banging on the door, yelling his name.

In an episode of his VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, David Dobrik revealed a disturbing encounter with a woman who was stalking him.

After Dobrik went outside to investigate, he reported that the viewer suffered from appeared to be a “panic attack” and quickly shouted “Nevermind, you can’t help me,” before “storming” out of his driveway.

Understandably concerned, Dobrik and company followed the woman, to no avail — but a day later, a neighbor texted the YouTuber that someone had keyed his assistant, Natalie’s, Ford Bronco.

The vehicle (pictured below) was etched with symbols, according to Dobrik, which included his name written in odd lettering.

Upon investigating the car, David found that the woman was nearby, claiming she wanted to “apologize” — but quickly became what he described as “scary,” prompting him to call law enforcement for help in case things got sticky.

Luckily, the star was adamant that he didn’t want to “get her in trouble” but instead wanted her to “get help,” to which she agreed.

While waiting on the police to arrive, Dobrik asked the woman why she’d stalked him, to which she replied: “He told me to just go for it.”

As for who “he” was? Dobrik claimed she said it was “the guy inside my head,” who told her that “if I came here, everything would be answered.”

Thankfully, the police were “super f**king nice” when they arrived and took the woman to a hospital, prompting a hilarious chat with an officer who advised Dobrik to change his name on social media — something he replied he was a “little late” for.

While this is far from the first time an internet celebrity has been outright stalked, it’s good to know that this situation ended peacefully, with Dobrik understanding that his stalker didn’t have bad intentions, but merely needed help.
