YouTube star Logan Paul parted ways with Agents of Shield actress Chloe Bennet in October 2018 without much fanfare, but it doesn’t look like things are completely off-limits between the two celebs.

Paul has remained notably single since his split with Bennet, even swearing off women altogether ahead of his boxing rematch with KSI. However, he continues to foster a connection with his ex, as told on an episode of the True Geordie Podcast.

According to the YouTuber-turned-boxer, the two share an amicable relationship, with Paul proudly applauding the actress in spite of their sudden breakup.

“Chloe is a gem,” Paul admitted. “That girl is one of a kind. She’s what we call a unicorn.”

“You loved her?” Geordie asked.

“Oh, yeah,” Paul replied. “I still do, by the way. I still do. We FaceTime from time to time. She’s a friend now, and I can say that without feeling like there’s strings attached or anything more than just like, pure, unconditional love and friendship. I’m blessed to be able to have a person like her in my life.”

However, Paul was quick to turn the emotional moment around, explaining that remaining single during his boxing training is “crucial” compared to his fight last year.

“I will say – no offense to Chloe – being single this fight, I’ve noticed, it is so crucial and important, and I love every second of it,” he continued. “‘Cause all I can do is focus on it.”

Although Bennet herself has remained staunchly silent on the subject, Paul opened up about their breakup in the months that followed, even claiming that friend Mike Majlak had been responsible for their split.

“I love that girl so much,” Mike stated during a December episode of the “imPaulsive” podcast. “I just don’t like them together. Love them separately – so much.”

In spite of this issue, it seems like Bennet and Paul have managed to maintain a healthy friendship. But with the looming match with KSI coming up fast, there’s no telling how Logan’s love life will fare once the action is over.

Dream responds to #dreamwaswrong trending on Twitter

YouTuber and Minecraft content creator Dream has finally responded to the #dreamwaswrong trend on Twitter, using his DreamWasTaken account to assert he disavows the behavior displayed by some of his fans.

Dream and his cohorts, including known creators like Tommyinnit and GeorgeNotFound, are incredibly popular on YouTube and beyond thanks to an infinitum of Dream Team videos and the Dream SMP server.

While that level of fame means possibility for mainstream collaboration with the likes of superstar TikTok influencer Addison Rae, it also comes with downsides. Notably, #dreamwaswrong began trending on Twitter as fans blamed Dream for encouraging his stans, some of whom are prone to producing inappropriate fan art involving minors.

As critics explain, Dream’s love for his fans supposedly equates to egging on the ways they express their fandom — thereby supporting the production of “CP.” In response, he explained: “I’ve said this before but don’t ship creators that are uncomfortable with it, and especially not minors. It’s disgusting to draw NSFW stuff about minors or anyone that hasn’t explicitly said it’s fine.”

After addressing the drama directly, by reaffirming that “NSFW stuff about minors” is distasteful, Dream continued on to explain why it’s unfair to misgeneralize his role in the production of such content.

In a follow-up tweet aimed at defending his support for his fans, the Minecraft YouTuber said, “With 16 million subscribers that’s 1 out of every 480 people IN THE WORLD that are subscribed. There’s bound to be thousands of terrible people, but there’s also bound to be millions of great ones. If you’re looking for hate or disgusting stuff, you’ll find it. Stop looking.”

As he shows, boasting 16 million subscribers on YouTube means that “out of every 480 people in the world,” at least one is a fan of Dream’s content. That is an enormous quantity of supporters, and it should not be surprising that there are “thousands of terrible people” within the millions of fans.

This sentiment appears to be echoed by his fans — as many have resurfaced earlier videos showing that the content creator has never specifically encouraged the creation of relationship fanfiction or “CP.”

It remains unclear how satisfied people are with Dream’s response, but the overall sentiment appears to be positive. While it feels unreasonable to expect a creator to be wholly responsible for the actions of their audience, this incident does provide a cautionary tale.

Considering this “disgusting” group of Dream’s stans, the prevailing community critique remains: If you are an influencer, you have some obligation to directly and quickly curtail negative behavior by those you influence.
