Top Talent House manager accused of exploiting minors in TikTok house

Members of TikTok collective Top Talent House are reportedly merging with another house, amid floods of allegations from former members against manager Nour Khodr for alleged exploitation and inappropriate behavior towards minors.

On October 10 a new talent house, in a similar vein to hugely popular Hype and Sway houses, was announced. The lineup initially featured stars with followers in the millions such as Anna Shumate, Rachel Brockman, and Eva Cudmore. The house is managed by 21-year-old Nour Khodr.

While the house initially looked to be gaining popularity within the TikTok community, not even a month into being active allegations were made by former members of the house toward manager Nour.

Former member Rachel Brockmann shared a thread by internet news reporter and commentary YouTuber Def Noodles on her Instagram story that alleged that “Nour has allegedly provided underage clients with drugs and alcohol. Nour has also allegedly encouraged underage clients to engage in sexual activity with other adult influencers.” The thread also claimed that Rachel had been removed from the house by LA police.

Current members of the Top Talent house quickly gathered for a livestream around an hour later in which they gave their side of the story. They claimed that “Rachel said that she did not want to go home and that she actually wanted to be emancipated.”

The girls from the house claimed that they feel “super super safe and happy” living in the house. They also explained that their parents had met with Nour and visited the house, and felt comfortable enough to let their children stay there.

Rachel went on to allege on her own live that Nour had rated his young clients on a “f***ability scale.” She claimed the girls from Top Talent would “say she’s lying because they don’t want to leave.”

She also claimed the Nour would “let his assistant go get [alcohol] for us” despite being minors.

Additionally, former Top Talent member McPlayGT put a statement on Instagram in which he claimed Nour “manipulated” him, and would take “more than three weeks” to pay him, claiming he was busy. He also alleges Nour “had people call me and threaten me for defamation.”

These allegations seem to have come to a head, after Rachel posted a screenshot of a supposed snapchat conversation with Top Talent member Katie Pego in which Katie said “none of this is going to matter on Monday because we are moving house” and switching manager, merging with Not a Content House.

Bryce Hall apologizes to Dixie D’Amelio & Noah Beck for stripper prank

YouTube star and Sway House member Bryce Hall has officially apologized to Dixie D’Amelio after pranking her boyfriend with strippers — and his way of saying sorry is one for the books.

On February 17, Hall uploaded a YouTube video in which he decided to prank Dixie by blindfolding Noah and hiring two exotic dancers to do their thing around him. During this time, Hall FaceTimed Dixie to show off the proceedings, leading the completely unamused D’Amelio sister to quickly end the call.

Unsurprisingly, many fans felt the prank was “insensitive” and potentially relationship-damaging; but while Dixie and Noah appear to be on good terms despite the practical joke, Hall has since decided to make up for his blunder in a big way.

A few days later, Hall brought Noah back to his home for yet another surprise — but this time, it was a far more positive one. After presenting Noah with a heartfelt letter, Bryce revealed that he’d purchased the TikTok-famous couple a voucher for a beachside hotel in Malibu, California, which they can redeem at any time.

“I got a suite for you guys on the beach in Malibu,” he explained. “It’s really nice. I felt bad for the prank. …and it’s a voucher, so you can go whatever day you want.”

Luckily, it seems that both Dixie and Noah are happy with Bryce’s unexpected gift, with Noah joking that “Bryce does have a heart!” before admitting: “That’s so nice, actually!”

“Thank you Bryce! That’s very kind,” Dixie added, who was let in on the situation — once again — via FaceTime. “I appreciate it!”

It looks like things are all smooth on the homefront with these three in wake of a prank that even had Dixie’s mother slamming Bryce Hall for being “disrespectful” to her daughter.

(Topic begins at 2:48)

Noah himself had even called for Hall to apologize beforehand, stating during paparazzi video: “He shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie.”

While Bryce is known for his “party animal” lifestyle, it’s nice to see the TikTok star showing his soft side — especially when it brings together some of his best friends.
