Logan Paul reveals his brutal verdict on TikTok’s Hype House drama

TikTok’s famous Hype House is descending into chaos, after star Daisy Keech announced she was suing fellow creators Thomas Petrou and Chase Hudson — but YouTuber Logan Paul isn’t too invested in the drama.

Keech explained that although she put down a significant amount of money on the Hype House’s deposit, she and many other creators in the media collective were left out of important business decisions.

That’s not all; Keech also revealed that Petrou would often make huge decisions on the creators’ behalf, explaining that she felt “disrespected, degraded and used.”

The drama has since risen to the top of social media controversy, a topic that made its way to Logan Paul’s ImPaulsive podcast on March 31.

Having been a subject of ample controversy in the past, Paul is no stranger to internet drama — but his own experiences as a target of worldwide vitriol have somewhat jaded him to the Hype House’s current conflict.

“I attempted to invest my energy into both of them, but neither of them had enough weight for me to really be able to sink my teeth into,” he said of both the TikTok turmoil and iDubbbz’s response to his angry fans.

Thomas Petrou and Chase Hudson are facing legal action from fellow Hype House member Daisy Keech, who accused the two of keeping other content creators out of important decisions.

That’s not all; Paul also revealed that he advised the TikTok group during their legal battle, claiming that he’d encouraged them to handle their beef outside of social media.

“I told that to both sides of the Hype House,” Paul began. “Because I’m friends with both sides. I told them both, my overall advice is like, ‘Yo, lowkey, who gives a f**k?’ …I think it’s something you can definitely handle offline. I don’t think it’s big enough to be able to make public.”

“Not to compare, but I’m used to some real drama, drama that shook and rippled the internet,” he continued, referencing his own international controversy from early 2018 in Japan’s Aokigahara “Suicide Forest.”

With both Petrou and Hudson facing legal action from Keech over the matter, TikTok fans the world over are waiting for further developments from drama that has rocked the viral video platform to its core.


TikTok in shock as Quenlin Blackwell reveals she’s living with Diplo

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has bemused fans after revealing that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ Diplo.

Quenlin Blackwell first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers, and has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and “Revolution,” and has released music with artists including Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. He is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

The DJ’s global fame is partly a reason why TikTok was so bemused when 19-year-old Quenlin revealed to her followers that she lives with him. In one video, responding to fans who asked her about noise complaints, she very casually said “I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors.”

TikTokers immediately asked questions about how the pair ended up living together and expressed their surprise. Quen responded to a comment that said “What! Tell us how this happened. We need the story,” and filmed herself asking Diplo why she lives with him, to which he responded, “Because I have no other friends.”

This offered fans little in the way of explanation and even rapper Lil Yachty responded with cry-laughing emojis.

One user wrote: “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad.” Another wrote: “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this,” while someone else added “Who is writing the 2020 script?? I just wanna know.”

Since the bizarre reveal, Quenlin has begun a TikTok series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians. So far Quenlin has filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

Meanwhile, Diplo has featured Quenlin on his own TikTok including a video of him checking to see if she has swollen glands in her neck and a sneaky video of a photoshoot with the caption “The time when @quenblackwell called the paparazzi on herself in my backyard smh.”

No one was ready for such a bizarre collaboration, but TikTok is here for it and excited to see the next few installments of Quenlin’s “Living with Diplo” series.
