Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has admitted former OfflineTV star Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan, who has had multiple sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him, was a “big reason” she moved out of the group’s Los Angeles mansion.

On June 19, Pokimane revealed she was leaving the Offline TV house nearly a year after the shift to Los Angeles. The Twitch star was one of the four original members of OTV’s content group, dating all the way back to mid-2017.

At the time, Anys declared her move had “nothing to do with Offline TV,” and was just about her getting to live with other friends.

That may not have been entirely true, however, after she revealed Fedmyster played a major role in her decision, just days after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct were leveled at him by Offline TV members.

Pokimane admitted Fedmyster spent much of their friendship “manipulating [her] without her knowing,” and making sure he controlled the narrative around her relationships, friends in the house, and “all of [her] personal life.”

“Although I hadn’t had any major issues with Fed since moving into the new house, I was still not entirely happy and felt a lot of pent-up resentment for him,” Pokimane explained in a short June 28 broadcast addressing the ongoing situation.

“I felt the only proper and unproblematic way for me to deal with my emotions was to move out. There were a lot of reasons… [but] Fed was a big pushing force, but I do still mean all the other things I said too. Was he a part of that though? Yes.”

Pokimane revealed Gaytan would “tell other guys [she was dating him]” so that they would “back off,” and in one instance even told a date Anys had brought to an OTV party that they were an item, but that “no one could know about it.”

“He would lie a lot. I had a lot of trust issues with him over the years,” Pokimane continued, “and we would fight a lot about things. If he was in the wrong, he would ignore my existence in the house. He would literally refuse to acknowledge me.”

During some of these times, Anys would confront Fedmyster, she said, to “try and sort things out,” but he would continue to ignore. On top of that, he would lie about the situation to their friends and colleagues, so that she would “sound really crazy” and “in the wrong.”

It wasn’t until Pokimane sat down with the rest of the Offline TV members, including Yvonne and LilyPichu, that she discussed “the extent of what Fed had actually been doing” all these years “behind [her] back.”

“I became aware of the fact he would lie about me a lot, and create narratives in his favor that would insinuate a lot of negative things about me. This drove everyone around me away, and it’s baffling that I only just found this out.”

Pokimane said she was heartbroken to find out what Fedmyster had been doing behind her back.

“It’s really hard for me to explain how bad it feels to find out the person I was closest to, and the person I shared how badly I wanted these friendships with, was the same person who was actually isolating me and sabotaging these friendships for me,” she continued.

“I don’t know if that was his intention, I’d like to think it was more a careless or inconsiderate thing, but ultimately he drove everyone around me away from me.

“I started freaking crying at the intervention, and after, just out of mourning for all the years of friendships I lost because of him. He was the first person I trusted, and the last person I expected to act like this towards me, and around me.”

Fedmyster first joined Offline TV in 2017 as production editor but wasn’t officially made part of the content team until 2018. He has now been removed from the entertainment group.

Pokimane moved out on June 19. She has not made it clear whether she is reconsidering returning to the Offline TV house following Fed’s removal. Lilypichu, Yvonne, Toast, Michael Reeves and Scarra still live in the house.

Scarra, who co-founded the house, revealed there had been several behind-the-scenes talks about whether they should “close” Offline TV, but confirmed the group had decided “to keep Offline operating,” with aims to “return to normal soon.”

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
