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.
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.”
“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.
