Hype House manager Thomas Petrou has hit back at Daisy Keech, releasing a video addressing many of the claims she had made about him and fellow TikTok star Chase Hudson.

Following her departure from the Hype House, Daisy Keech posted a video revealing her decision to leave the house and the drama between her and fellow TikTok creators Thomas Petrou and Lil Huddy.

Daisy received an outpouring of support for “exposing” her former group, however, Hype House co-founder Thomas Petrou has finally responded to the claims, sharing his own version of how the feud began.

Thomas Petrou has responded to Daisy’s claims after her departure from The Hype House.

Thomas Petrou uploaded a video to the Hype House’s YouTube channel on April 2 and explained that he was going to share the “real truth” about what went on behind the scenes.

He addressed many of the points that Daisy brought up in her video, such as who put in money to initially fund the group. He even shared some payment receipts which revealed that he, Daisy and Chase had all invested a similar sum to kickstart the Hype House.

Another major topic he spoke out about was his role as a co-founder and claimed that he did not have as much control over everyone as Daisy had made out in her video.

“I’m pretty much the manager of the Hype House, I help coordinate a lot of the events…I’m one of the people that makes decisions but not without talking to everyone on the team. But at the end of the day someone has to run the house,” he added, sharing his role within the group.

Thomas also revealed that he had grown cautious of Daisy and her lawyer, who he claimed had “suspicious intentions”, as time went by and claimed that he had lost trust in Keech after she had filed for the Hype House trademarks by herself.

Thomas shared screenshots of his conversation with Daisy about access to the Hype House socials.

The Hype House founder also provided screenshots of part of the conversation between him and Keech regarding her ability to access the group’s social media pages and email account.

He later shared that Daisy had done little to promote the Hype House compared to many of the other stars since it was founded, claiming that she had missed out on many important press events before ultimately leaving the group and filing a lawsuit against her former housemates.

Keech has not responded to Petrou publicly, but there is also the small matter of the lawsuit to contend with.


TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
