Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has provided a new update in the saga of her Nintendo Switch, revealing that the console itself was stolen, rather than her account being hacked as initially believed.

The streamer was bemused on December 21 when she realized that someone had purchased Just Dance on her Nintendo account, offering a confused “thanks?” at the idea that someone had broken into her account just to buy her a game.

It now appears that this wasn’t the case after all, with the reality appearing to be that someone has actually stolen the console itself, with the theft taking place at some point before Christmas.

In a tweet posted on December 26, the 23-year-old provided an update for her fans who were still thinking about the Just Dance mystery, writing: “No one hacked into my account, instead my whole Nintendo Switch was stolen.”

When asked by a fan how she had only just realized that her console had been pinched five days after first talking about the situation, the streamer explained that she had been spending part of the holidays in Canada with her family, and didn’t realize it was gone until she returned to California.

“I visited my parents in Canada and left my Switch at home in Los Angeles,” she replied. “So I only found out when I came back and it was gone.”

Pokimane lives in the OfflineTV house with fellow YouTubers and streamers like Michael Reeves, Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki and William ‘scarra’ Li, and currently it appears that the Switch is the only item missing from the property.

As for when the console went missing, Pokimane could only confirm that happened some time before Christmas, but doesn’t appear to be sure of an exact date or time that it was pilfered by the thief.

Unfortunately for Pokimane and her fans, the prospect of a possible Just Dance Twitch stream is definitely off the table now, thanks to the thief who is now enjoying their new Nintendo Switch console.

TikTok star Ava Louise admits she fabricated the Kanye West & Jeffree Star affair rumors

Leaked audio from TikTok star Ava Louise appears to show the influencer admitting to completely making up the viral rumors that Jeffree Star and Kanye West were having a secret affair.

On January 6, the internet went up in flames due to a completely unexpected rumor, which claimed that a major male beauty influencer had been behind the Kim Kardashian / Kanye West divorce.

Although she didn’t name him, the TikToker who kicked off the rumors — a content creator named Ava Louise — appeared to heavily hint that the male influencer was Jeffree Star, a massively popular YouTuber and owner of his own makeup empire.

With Star appearing to find the scandal humorous and even poking fun at the rumors with cryptic Tweets, many found some credibility in the situation — but he fully debunked the matter on January 7, claiming that he’s never even met Kanye.

After two days of the rumors running rampant online, it seems that Ava Louise has admitted to completely fabricating the entire ordeal, as told by audio from a leaked text conversation.

“I’m literally not even getting sued,” Louise can be heard saying in the audio clip. “I made the entire scandal up. There is literally not one bit of truth to anything I have said. I just tricked the entire world into talking about me again because I was on a lot of Adderall.”

Well, there you have it: Ava Louise made the entire scandal up so that the internet would talk about her again, thanks to the help of certain prescription medications.

Needless to say, it doesn’t look like the internet is too pleased with Ava’s latest stunt, which comes months after she licked a toilet seat in a “challenge” amid the global health crisis last year.

“She did all of this for nothing,” one commenter said of the situation.

“Bro, if you’re bored, just play Roblox or something,” another joked. “There was no need to do that.”

“Imagine starting stuff that can hurt ppl in the process for fun,” yet another said.

Kim and Kanye themselves have denied the rumors, according to a source close to the couple, making this entire scenario a 24-hour whirlwind that stopped as quickly as it started.
