Twitch star Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has refused to confirm or deny if he has inside information on why Dr Disrespect was banned on the platform, but he’s made one thing clear – he’s not entertaining any “sources.” 

The two streamers have created enormous followings on Twitch, with millions following Tim’s channel still, but me

mbers of the Champions Club having been issued refunds since Doc had his channel abruptly removed on June 26.

Since then, the world’s most talked-about streamer right now has confirmed there been no reasoning given, leaving his fanbase and everybody else wondering what exactly led to such firm action being taken.

With a lack of information currently available online, this has led to hundreds, if not thousands, of users on Twitter claiming to have the inside scoop.

Dr Disrespect was one of Twitch’s biggest streamers before being struck with a ban.

Some, like Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, have been covering the situation extensively since the news broke and claimed it wasn’t due to a DMCA problem. Others, however, have been lingering in the comments saying they know the reason why, but refuse to spill the tea.

On balance, nobody has really come forward with anything concrete as of yet.

During a broadcast on June 29, some fans watching along in Tim’s stream asked him to comment on supposed rumors that Dr Disrespect’s ban may finish his career.

To that point, he said: “I just don’t think, and here’s the thing bro, everybody keeps saying ‘sources, sources, sources, sources…’ Me, personally, I don’t want to assume the worst.

“I am just going to wait and see what happens. That’s no offence to anyone who is making tweets about sources and all this stuff, right. If they want to do that, go for it, but me personally, I’m just going to wait.”

This wasn’t the only time TimTheTatman was asked about Dr Disrespect during the stream. As he may have expected before going live that day, everybody wants to know what’s going on with Doc and are looking for answers. From sources, or otherwise.

In another exchange, fans put other ‘rumors’ to Tim for comment. This time, they asked about him linking up with the Two-Time to start up a new streaming company, and whether or not there was a connection between the new start-up called Brime and his ban.

After holding his head in hands, and smirking, he said: “I’m not going to answer you yes or no, but here’s what I’ll say to you. Based on what you know about me, a lot of you know I’m very lazy, I don’t like doing any work. I barely do anything. Do you think I’m going to try to create my own streaming platform?”

Now, he’s probably been a bit hard on himself with the comment on being lazy.

The popular figure has worked tremendously hard to build up the success he’s enjoying on Twitch, although it does appear that he’s somewhat comfortable in his current spot.

Once we know more about the Dr Disrespect Twitch ban we’ll be the first to let you know. Until then, it looks like the rumor mill will keep on turning, but Tim won’t be listening to these “sources” either way.

TikTok in shock as Quenlin Blackwell reveals she’s living with Diplo

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has bemused fans after revealing that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ Diplo.

Quenlin Blackwell first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers, and has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and “Revolution,” and has released music with artists including Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. He is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

The DJ’s global fame is partly a reason why TikTok was so bemused when 19-year-old Quenlin revealed to her followers that she lives with him. In one video, responding to fans who asked her about noise complaints, she very casually said “I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors.”

TikTokers immediately asked questions about how the pair ended up living together and expressed their surprise. Quen responded to a comment that said “What! Tell us how this happened. We need the story,” and filmed herself asking Diplo why she lives with him, to which he responded, “Because I have no other friends.”

This offered fans little in the way of explanation and even rapper Lil Yachty responded with cry-laughing emojis.

One user wrote: “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad.” Another wrote: “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this,” while someone else added “Who is writing the 2020 script?? I just wanna know.”

Since the bizarre reveal, Quenlin has begun a TikTok series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians. So far Quenlin has filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

Meanwhile, Diplo has featured Quenlin on his own TikTok including a video of him checking to see if she has swollen glands in her neck and a sneaky video of a photoshoot with the caption “The time when @quenblackwell called the paparazzi on herself in my backyard smh.”

No one was ready for such a bizarre collaboration, but TikTok is here for it and excited to see the next few installments of Quenlin’s “Living with Diplo” series.
