Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has long been part of the content creation group ‘Offline TV’ — but after living with the squad in their shared home, she is making a huge jump to another location.

Pokimane was one of the four original members of Offline TV, with the organization having recently moved house to another location in late 2019.

Despite this recent change in locale, Pokimane expressed some doubts about her place in Los Angeles in a soul-baring series of Tweets via her second Twitter account, leading some fans to think she would leave the content house.

Twitch star and Offline TV member Pokimane announced on June 19 that she will be moving out of the OTV content house.

Anys teased her viewers with this possibility in an announcement video on June 19, where she at first joked that she would be moving back to Canada to be with her family.

However, it turns out that this statement was merely a practical joke, with the streamer quickly clarifying that she wouldn’t be moving out of the country, but rather out of the Offline TV content house, instead living with a group of her female friends.

“As amazing of an experience as that was, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, I do feel like it is kind of time for me to try something new,” she explained. “I’m moving in with a bunch of my girl friends, which I’m really excited for.”

Although Pokimane is leaving the Offline TV home, she clarified that she is not parting ways with the organization, which includes such stars as Fedmyster, Michael Reeves, and LilyPichu.

Anys went on to explain that her decision to leave the house had nothing to do with Offline TV and claimed that the organization fully supported her, while also assuring concerned fans that she will continue to remain a part of the group moving forward.

“I just really want to make it a point to say [Offline TV] have been so supportive of my decision, and it has nothing to do with OTV,” she continued. “I will still be in all the videos, I’ll be coming over for shoots, I will probably be playing more games with them. …Nothing there is changing. I’m just personally kind of testing something out in terms of my living situation.”

Thus far, Pokimane’s decision has been met with positivity from fans as she begins the next step in a new chapter of her life as an online streaming sensation away from the Offline TV home.

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.
