Popular Twitch streamer Imane “Pokimane” Anys is known for her hilarious interactions with fans and over-the-top reactions: but despite sharing her life with fans, there’s one thing she keeps private.

Although Anys interacts with her fanbase on a regular basis, the streaming celeb remains tight-lipped about her relationship status, claiming that she doesn’t want to go through the drama of a public breakup should things end badly.

However, the streamer posted a meme to Twitter on September 12 that may have given fans a sneak peek into her love life – with a humorous twist.

“It’s cuffing season, and yet here I am,” Anys wrote alongside a stock photo of open handcuffs.

While it might seem like Anys was geniunely venting about her single status, the streamer clarified that she was merely joking around, and encouraged her fanbase to enjoy being single if they’ve found themselves without a cuddle buddy this fall.

“I’m just memeing y’all, don’t ever feel bad about being single,” Pokimane explained. “The right person will come along, you just gotta focus on becoming someone deserving of that right person.”

Despite giving viewers advice on their own love lives, Pokimane has decidedly kept her own affairs out of the limelight, as stated during a Q & A video where she answered fans’ most pressing questions.

“I don’t know if I would like, really want to put my relationship out there one I get into one,” she said of the matter. “For example, I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of couples out there who make their relationship public. …when they break up, they have to make that public, too.”

That’s not all: the streamer also denied keeping her relationship private in hopes of capitalizing off “thirsty” fans, as many female broadcasters are accused of doing by online critics.

“…I don’t think there’s anything I particularly do that justifies that assumption,” she claimed. “…I love communicating with my entire audience or random people however I can. I don’t like putting a price amount on it.”

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s top female streamers, boasting over three million followers on the platform – but it doesn’t look like she’s sharing her romantic prospects with them any time soon.

Josh Richards slams influencers who use the Sway House for clout points

Josh Richards is one of TikTok’s most popular content creators and an integral part of the Sway House — a group that he’s not too pleased is being used for clout by other influencers looking to get a leg up in the industry.

Josh Richards, who boasts over 22 million followers on TikTok (in no small part due to showing off his abs in every other video), feels that some creators are taking advantage of the Sway House’s kindness to grow their own platforms and split.

Richards spoke on the situation during an episode of Barstool Sports’ ‘BFFs’ podcast on October 13, claiming that he had at first wanted to help other creators get started by giving them a boost.

“I knew how to pump out a million videos back to back,” he explained. “And I’d do five a day. And then I would see these other kids who were starting to blow up, and I was like, ‘Okay, if I give them a little bit of direction, they could be huge.’”

However, co-host Dave Portnoy noted that sometimes these kinds of relationships can go south — a sentiment that Richards agreed with, sharing his own experiences with stars just trying to use the Sway House.

“There’s so many people that come to us, and they’ll start filming at our house,” he continued. “I think we’ve gotten better at not letting this happen, but they would just use us for videos. They would sleep over, they would always be like, ‘Get in our videos!’”

“The thing that sucks about that is that you don’t really know who’s out to get you anymore and then who’s just really trying to be there, be your homie and just vibe with you,” he added. “That really sucks.”

Richards isn’t the first internet star to make such claims, by far; YouTuber Jake Paul has also infamously accused other creators of using Team 10 to blow up and subsequently “act like they don’t know nobody,” leading to quite a bit of drama in his own realm.

While Richards’ statement has yet to be called out by other TikTokers, it’s not hard to believe that someone would try to piggyback off of someone else’s success in the age of social media fame.
