YouTube star and ‘imPaulsive’ co-host Mike Majlak has finally revealed the reason behind his seemingly permanent breakup with ex-girlfriend Lana after the two unexpectedly parted ways less than a week ago.

Mike Majlak has become quite the YouTube sensation over the past few years; starting his own successful series ‘The Night Shift,’ he has also garnered a solid online following due to co-hosting Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast, and often appears in the influencer’s vlogs.

However, he’s also become a subject of interest for viewers across the net due to his off-again, on-again relationship with now ex-girlfriend Lana, who — funnily enough — Logan “gifted” to Majlak as a prank birthday gift in early 2020.

After breaking up in late October, the two got back together again… but it seems that a romance is not in the cards for these two stars, as news broke in February 2021 that the two had officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak and Lana originally got together early last year, but have now officially called it quits.

While Mike was adamant that he would not make a stereotypical “break up video” discussing the topic, he did open up about the breakup on a February 23 episode of ‘imPaulsive,’ explaining what exactly lead to their split (and no, it wasn’t because he “hit on” a fellow player in GTA, as many fans believed).

“I’ve talked to people about it, and they always say, ‘Stick through the fights,’” he began. “But when those fights become the mainstay, when those fights become the norm for months on end, and the relationship starts to take more energy from you than it provides for your life, and you don’t see an end in sight for either person… it’s the time that you have to start thinking about calling it quits.”

Lana said she and Mike will not get back together this time around.

“I think we both kind of made a mutual decision that, listen, we’re just not able to make this work. …the thing that really ended up being the breaker was just a more normal thing, just a shared incompatibility.”

Despite the differences between them, Mike wishes nothing but the best for Lana in the future, and confirmed that this would be the last time he publicly speaks about the breakup for the foreseeable future.

GTA RP streamer shocked after Twitch bans him for visiting in-game adult club

Twitch has banned NoPixel 3.0 streamer ‘RatedEpicz’ after an in-game incident, however the circumstances have pulled the platform’s double standards into question.

GTA roleplaying (RP) is taking over Twitch yet again. With streamers like Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar, and more getting back on the trend, servers like NoPixel 3.0 are popping yet again.

The Rockstar title, first released in Sep. 2013, isn’t known for being the most family-friendly. Lives of high crime, and the trimmings that come with that, are the norm. However, RP servers make the experience a little bit more tame.

So, when RatedEpicz decided to enter the Vanilla Unicorn in GTA 5 as part of his RP content, he didn’t really think twice about it. The adult club is part of the game, and people have gone there before.

However, Twitch pinged him for adult content, banning the streamer.

“They got me boys. Hold it down,” he said on Twitter. He added later in Discord that he believes “being in the VU” was the main reason behind his suspension.

While the ban is a minor one, the community has gotten into an uproar over the platform’s double standards for two reasons.

The first is there are a number of other streamers doing worse things through GTA RP. The notorious Ricegum was highlighted as one case of being seemingly above Twitch’s law when it comes to roleplay streams.

The second is the Vanilla Unicorn is a part of the game anyone can enter. While not explicit entirely, the heavy suggestions might toe the line of Twitch’s adult content policy. However, many believe it should be whitelisted.

The Vanilla Unicorn has been highlighted as the reason for RatedEpicz’ Twich ban.

Reportedly, a number of other Twitch streamers were alerted to the problem’s surrounding the Vanilla Unicorn in GTA 5. The number of warnings handed out has forced the NoPixel devs to shut down that part of the map.

The devs also joked about the double standards surrounding Twitch gaming streams and IRL Just Chatting content, claiming “we are going to add hot tubs to VU and call it Just Chatting.”

RatedEpicz has appealed the suspension in the hopes of removing the strike from his account. Until then, he will be staying far away from the Vanilla Unicorn to try and avoid Twitch’s wrath.
