TikTok star Zoe Laverne has shared details of what she called ‘the scariest night of her life’ when she narrowly avoided what could have been a horrific crash on August 28.

Zoe is a TikTok star known for her lip-syncing and dance routines, boasting a huge following of over 17 million followers since 2016 when she made her start on the video-sharing app formally known as Musical.ly.

She had begun posting on her Snapchat story the night of August 28, with pictures of her and several friends in a car, Zoe in the passenger seat. The girl who was driving the vehicle had the phone up to her ear in this particular video.

An hour later she uploaded a picture to her story of a pole extremely close to the windshield. She captioned it “tonight was the scariest night of my life. Came this close to hitting a telephone pole. Completely spun out of control. I’m so thankful my friends and I are alright. Thank you God.”

Shortly after the incident, she took to a livestream on Instagram to share details of the near-miss with her followers. “Abby and I and a couple other girls were in the car, and Abby was checking her GPS,” she began to explain.

“We hit the curb, we got on top of the curb. Abby was turning the wheel really really hard, we lost control of the wheel.” Zoe even says that the vehicle “went airborne” which gives an indication as to how severe the incident could have been.

While it doesn’t appear that anyone of the girls in the car at the time of the incident were hurt, it certainly caused emotional damage judging by how frantic Zoe appeared in her live.

While some have questioned Zoe’s decision to go live so soon after the incident, most have just expressed their relief that it didn’t turn into something more serious.


Jake Paul claims he’s hospitalized ahead of Mike Tyson undercard fight

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
