TikTok star Ellie Zeiler caused a stir on social media when she wished Cynthia Parker a happy 30th birthday instead of a 16th supposedly by accident, causing tensions to flare between the two stars.

Ellie Zeiler and Cynthia Parker are among the young influencers taking the TikTok world by storm in the last few years, with Ellie at 7 million followers on the platform and Cynthia at 3.2 million.

The pair had got into some drama previously this year after Ellie appeared to be trying to get close to Cynthia’s boyfriend, talking about it behind her back. In a livestream following the spat, Cynthia explained that Ellie had sent her “full on paragraphs” apologizing for her comments, and the tension seemed to be left at that.

But in an unexpected turn of events, Ellie (either unintentionally or deliberately) posted an Instagram story in which she said “happy 30th gorgeous” next to a picture of Cynthia – despite the fact that she had just turned 16.

Ellie quickly posted a follow-up story of her head in her hand with the caption “shoot I meant 16th!” but it appeared the damage was already done.

Responding to a screenshot of the post, Cynthia said “thanks Charli!!” and in a separate comment “shoot I meant Ellie,” comments that combined currently have 60,000 likes. Ellie fired back with “good one snicker!” as a reference to Cynthia’s racial slur scandal back in June.

Cynthia went on to comment on the unexpected drama. “Honestly why are we still on this? I’m not sure what she’s trying to get out of this. Super out of nowhere and unnecessary.”

She went on to say “I’m not here to give y’all a show. Let’s grow up and move on. Don’t text me [saying] you wanna hang out. Then shade me. I’m over it,” again calling it “straight up rude and unnecessary.”

Whether Ellie’s story was intentional or not is unclear, but regardless it has certainly ruffled feathers and reignited tensions between the stars.


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).
