TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.

A document allegedly featuring texts between former-Offline TV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan and Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys leaked online that accuses the Twitch star of taking their relationship out of context to hurt him.

In June, popular OfflineTV personality Fedmyster was accused of harassment and misconduct from several members of the content group. The shocking news rocked their community as the 25-year-old was removed from both the company and their house.

After months of silence, a document leaked online that claims Gaytan is accusing Pokimane of not telling the truth about their relationship. The file contains an essay allegedly written by him, as well as supposed text conversations between him and the Twitch star.

Fedmyster allegedly speaks out about Pokimane

On June 29, Pokimane addressed the Fedmyster allegations on stream, and explained that his behavior was a “big reason” she had moved out of the OfflineTV house. The star stated that 25-year-old had been sabotaging her relationship with other men, and had even kept her alienated from friends.

On November 25, a document appeared online that reportedly shows Gaytan accusing Pokimane of not giving proper context to their relationship. “Watching Poki talk about all the things I’ve done with little to zero context to the nature of our relationship hurt me pretty bad,” the leaked letter reads.

It also accuses the Twitch star of being untruthful. “I definitely did some unquestionable things and broke her trust, but there are some claims she makes about me, and herself that are either false, twisting the truth, or misconstrued,” it read. Streamers such as Steven ‘Destiny’ Bonnell reviewed the controversial file during their live broadcast for viewers.

While Pokimane has not fully responded to any of the claims, the Moroccan-Canadian personality told fans on her second Twitter account that she would be addressing the allegations during a Twitch stream on November 26.

The Google Doc also appears to contain multiple leaked private texts between the streamer and Pokimane. The content of the conversations are extremely personal. In the essay supposedly written by Gaytan, he defended posting the messages to “show specific context that was never given.”

At the time of writing, it’s not clear whether Fedmyster actually wrote the document, or if any of the content contained inside of is real. However, the file quickly went viral on social media, and kicked off a new firestorm surrounding the June situation.
