Star Twitch streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff revealed that he confronted 100 Thieves investor Scooter Braun for defending Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag following his exit from the organization.

Following his departure from 100 Thieves and public feud with CEO Nadeshot, NICKMERCS has gone on to build a massive fan base on Twitch and later joined rival organization FaZe Clan.

Months on from the drama, NICKMERCS decided to open up again about the rocky exit from his former team and revealed his thoughts on those involved, during one of his recent Twitch broadcasts.

While reflecting on his time creating content in Los Angeles, during the early days of 100 Thieves, he highlighted one moment in particular that left him frustrated after leaving the org.

Nadeshot and Scooter Braun both appeared on a TechCrunch panel where they were asked about the public feud shortly after it had happened. However, while the 100T founder was hesitant to comment on the matter, Scooter Braun jumped to his defense, accusing Kolcheff of using his platform to spread misinformation.

After detailing the events of the interview and pointing out Braun’s take on the feud, the superstar streamer revealed that he actually confronted the 100 Thieves investor after hearing his comments.

“I told my agent and my manager to get a hold of Scooter, tell him I want to talk to him and I want to talk to him now,” he admitted, “I get on the phone with this f***ing guy and I ask him what the f*** he’s talking about.”

He continued on, revealing more details about his phone call with the entrepreneur: “I remember telling Scooter at one point, ‘when people go up there and lie like that on your name, where I’m from they get slapped in the f***ing mouth’.”

NICKMERCS added that he did contribute quite a lot to the early stages of 100 Thieves but was never fully recognized for his efforts, also claiming that Braun was not present for much of the matters that he spoke on, sharing that “he came in way later.”

However, he also admitted that he does not hold any resentment towards Nadeshot for his actions behind the scenes or the public drama that ensued: “Matt was in a tough spot, I’ve admitted that you know, It was a very difficult spot to be in and I feel for the dude, it was not easy but its part of being of the boss.”

It’s been a while since all of the 100T-related drama took place, but Nick said that he finally chose to address the situation more in-depth because of constant questions about from his viewers.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
