Imane “Pokimane” Anys is a popular face in the Fortnite community, boasting over 4 million subscribers on YouTube where she uploads videos of herself playing the game with young fans – one of whom shocked her with his tumultuous love life.

While it may not seem like it, kids can have quite a lot of drama going on in their personal lives, as Pokimane found out during a Duos game with a 10-year-old player named “Ben.”

During this game, Ben admitted that he had a girlfriend, who he’d planned on inviting to their conversation – but there is more to their “relationship” than meets the eye.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane linked up with a young fan for a Duos game in Fortnite – and ended up being told a hilarious story.

According to Ben, he’d met his girlfriend online through Fortnite when he was nine – but there happened to be another player by the same name in their game, who she decided to date instead.

Pokimane remained attentive throughout his spiel, shockingly exclaiming “She dated the other Ben!” in response to the childhood drama.

That’s not all – Ben went on to reveal that the “other” Ben hadn’t been online for five months since that initial game, prompting him to ask his current girlfriend out on a “date,” which took her two weeks to accept.

“And then I just asked her out on a date, and then it took her like, two weeks to answer it,” Ben humorously explained. “And then she said yes. And then… that’s how it’s done.”

“That’s how it’s done!” Pokimane guffawed. “That really is how it’s done! Mhm! The better Ben swoops in.”

That wasn’t the end of his hilarious tale, either: Ben went on to claim that his first girlfriend had “cheated” on him, who he dubbed the “meanest girlfriend I’ve ever had.”

Epic GamesDespite its colorful facade, Fortnite apparently is a hive of drama for Ben’s love life.

“First of all, she cheated on me,” he began. “Second of all, he cusses a lot. And then third of all… my bestest friend was dating her, so she was like, cheating on me with him.”

While not all of Pokimane’s encounters with young fans have been this wholesome, Ben’s “Days of Our Lives” rendition certainly warranted some laughs, especially considering the star streamer’s reactions to his tale.

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
