JayStation, a YouTuber with almost 5.5 million subscribers, has both shocked and confused fans, with a video reporting the death of his girlfriend, Alexia.

On January 22, JayStation posted a 4-minute video title “My Girlfriend Alexia has died… *Rest in Paradise*.” Appearing distressed, he explains “last night, we lost Alexia to a drunk driver, guys. She was going to pick up something for our video on our second channel. She’s gone guys. She’s gone.”

However, fans have been left confused, as after the video reporting her death had been posted, another video was posted to their second channel, featuring Alexia.

This second video, titled “LIE DETECTOR TEST TURNS INTO REAL BREAKUP!! (CHALLENGE)”, features an alive and well Alexia.

Update: Video has been removed from YouTube.

JayStation does say that the couple already had five videos lined up, but fans were surprised to see this posted following news of her apparent death.

In a follow-up video on his own channel, JayStation made a visit to a streetside vigil for Alexia. The memorial already had a cross, images of Alexia, a teddy bear and flowers when he arrived.

The YouTuber also notices a sign, which was out of place and bent over, explaining “she must have crashed into this sign.”

JayStation says he still plans to upload content, but that “it won’t be the same without her.”

The odd circumstances around the video have led some to suggest that the video and death of Alexia Marano is fake.

Fellow YouTuber OrdinaryGamers says he has checked with police departments in Toronto and Ottowa, near where JayStation reportedly lives, and there are no reports confirming the death.

Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has started a hashtag in an effort to ban JayStation from the platform, also accusing him of faking the death.

The Canadian YouTuber has previously sparked controversy with his videos. Most infamously, he used a oujia board to “contact” late streamer Etika – on the same day as his suicide. This prompted a petition to have him banned.

He’s also been accused of faking numerous other videos, including one in which he was apparently beaten up in his own home.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
