Due to her position in the public eye, rumors and gossip are constantly circulating among the Twitch community regarding her personal life, but InvaderVie – who has over 50,000 followers on the site – took it a step further by spreading rumors surrounding Pokimane’s love life during a broadcast to thousands of viewers.

Instagram: pokimanelolPokimane’s fame on Twitch means her personal life is constantly speculated on.

InvaderVie claims Pokimane and Hasan are together

During her May 7 broadcast, InvaderVie was asked by a member of her chat if Hasan Piker was an ‘incel’, a shortened version of the phrase “involuntary celebate,” which means someone who is “unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one.”

InvaderVie’s response was shocking, stating: “Is Hasan an incel? No, because he’s have sex with Pokimane.”

When asked for more context and proof by her viewers, InvaderVie provided a flimsy argument as to why she was so sure that the rumors she was spreading were accurate, answering a question which queried if her statement was “confirmed or just a meme.”

“Guys, here’s the thing,” InvaderVie told her audience. “I’ve never asked anyone about this because it’s none of my f*cking business, but I opened Pokimane’s stream for three seconds in Berlin, and Hasan was on it with her.”

“He had the biggest smile on his face I had ever seen. So for me, that’s as obvious as it needs to be. You see a dude with the biggest smile on his face that he’s ever had in his entire life, and he’s standing next to a stunningly beautiful young woman, you can kind of guess, maybe, what’s happening. It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out. That’s just me using my eyes and brain and looking at a situation.”

InvaderVie was likely referring to TwitchCon Europe, an event that saw streamers from across the world head to Berlin, Germany to take part in a conference and meet members of their European audience.

Many on Reddit who saw the clip of InvaderVie’s claims immediately called her decision to air the rumors as “toxic”, and something that could “harm [Pokimane’s] reputation,” stating that she had no real evidence to back up her claims.

Pokimane responds to InvaderVie’s claims

Since the rumors started to draw attention, Pokimane has come out and addressed the allegations, stating that she was “baffled and disappointed” by the clip and InvaderVie’s decision to discuss her personal life.

Pokimane wrote on Reddit: “I know random [LivestreamFails] comments will speculate about my personal life, but to see another streamer – and one that I’m acquainted with – make such large assumptions and then proceed to state them as fact on their stream feels really disrespectful and invasive.

“Thank you to those that didn’t take this as gospel, bus instead got her to clarify on why she said it, which was just because he was smiling at me. Not cool, Vie.”

InvaderVie has refrained from mentioning the rumors she started on Twitch or social media following Pokimane’s response, but we’ll be sure to update this article if any new infromation is made available.

TikTok in shock as Quenlin Blackwell reveals she’s living with Diplo

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has bemused fans after revealing that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ Diplo.

Quenlin Blackwell first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers, and has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and “Revolution,” and has released music with artists including Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. He is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

The DJ’s global fame is partly a reason why TikTok was so bemused when 19-year-old Quenlin revealed to her followers that she lives with him. In one video, responding to fans who asked her about noise complaints, she very casually said “I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors.”

TikTokers immediately asked questions about how the pair ended up living together and expressed their surprise. Quen responded to a comment that said “What! Tell us how this happened. We need the story,” and filmed herself asking Diplo why she lives with him, to which he responded, “Because I have no other friends.”

This offered fans little in the way of explanation and even rapper Lil Yachty responded with cry-laughing emojis.

One user wrote: “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad.” Another wrote: “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this,” while someone else added “Who is writing the 2020 script?? I just wanna know.”

Since the bizarre reveal, Quenlin has begun a TikTok series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians. So far Quenlin has filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

Meanwhile, Diplo has featured Quenlin on his own TikTok including a video of him checking to see if she has swollen glands in her neck and a sneaky video of a photoshoot with the caption “The time when @quenblackwell called the paparazzi on herself in my backyard smh.”

No one was ready for such a bizarre collaboration, but TikTok is here for it and excited to see the next few installments of Quenlin’s “Living with Diplo” series.
