YouTube sensation Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has provided new details after confirming that a house he and his wife Marzia owns has been ransacked.

PewDiePie is one of the most popular content creators on the internet, regularly pulling in millions of views on his YouTube videos, with massive followings across social media.

It’s little surprise then that many were shocked when Marzia posted an Instagram story which stated that the couple’s house had been broken into, and valuables like jewelry, luxury goods, and collected items had all been taken by the thief.

Marzia Kjellberg, InstagramMarzia Kjellberg wrote on Instagram that her home had been broken into.

While the Swede had remained quiet about the situation himself, he finally addressed the robbery in a video uploaded on Monday, December 2, confirming that is wasn’t his house in the United Kingdom where he lives at the moment that was broken into, although the couple also had some major issues there too.

“What a week,” he said, as he kicked off a video where he looked at cute and heartwarming images. “First, here in the UK, my house got flooded, pure panic for the last couple of days.

“Then, my place in Japan was robbed, and they took all our stuff. Epic. I need to look at blessed images on Reddit to know the whole world isn’t rotten.”

The 30-year-old confirmed that the Kjellbergs had purchased a property in Japan back in September, and has even teased moving to the country on a permanent basis after the couple spent their second honeymoon in “The Land of the Rising Sun.”

While PewDiePie had previously stated that he was uncomfortable doing a house tour of his home in the Asian country for fears that the location of their property would be determined, it appears that thieves were able to discover it anyway.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
