TikTok star and 100 Thieves member Nicole ‘Neekolul’ Sanchez has responded after information came to light that revealed the entertainer had been arrested on assault charges in 2018 and sentenced to anger management training.

Neekolul has become a massively popular face in the online world, skyrocketing to fame after uploading her viral “Okay Boomer” video in March 2020.

Now, Neeko boasts a massive following on her Twitch channel, where she streams in partnership with esports organization 100 Thieves — but it seems that some are trying to topple her new success by bringing up her past.

An article published in late July claimed that Neeko had been arrested on assault charges in May 2018 by the Fresno police department for dealing corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant.

Court records used in the article (which Dexerto were also able to verify) show that Neeko was 20 years old at the time of her arrest, and claimed that her bail was set at $25,000. That’s not all; the piece also claimed she had been sentenced to a year in prison, as well as anger management training.

However, Neeko argues to the contrary, as revealed in a series of direct messages to YouTuber ‘Scarce’ via Twitter.

In her response to the article, she denied ever having been sentenced to prison, and claimed she only had to take 12 anger management classes as a result of the incident. She likewise stated that she had been in an abusive relationship at the time, and had struck her abuser as a preemptive response to their own violence toward her.

“The article is talking about an incident in which there was an argument where I hit the person who was abusive to me,” she said of the matter. “When I hit him, it was a reaction to what was happening in the moment and how I was feeling — I knew it was escalating to where he was going to hit me, and I was genuinely angry and hating him for the way he treated me.”

“I was hoping to put that relationship behind me, but I felt like I needed to address this,” she continued.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
